   The Vegas Rollers found out why the Philadelphia Freedoms have the best record in World TeamTennis this season.
   Philadelphia, led by Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin, swept the five sets in its 25-16 victory today at The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.V.
   Three sets went to tiebreakers, but Kenin won 5-3 in women's singles and 5-1 in women's doubles (with Caroline Dolehide).
   Philadelphia improved to 7-1, and Vegas fell to 4-5, fifth in the nine-team league. The top four teams advance to the playoffs, Aug. 1-2 at The Greenbrier.
   Vegas, which has dropped three of its last four matches, will play Tennys Sandgren and the Orlando Storm (4-4) for the second time this season on Thursday at noon PDT (Tennis Channel). The Rollers pounded Orlando 24-15 on July 13 at The Greenbrier.
