'p"" Iff "V Sunday, September 22, 1991 THE CINCINNATI I NQl IRI R Tennis, golfC-13 Germans beat U.S. in doubles Ryder-less U.S. tries again THE ASSOCIATED PRESS KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The U.S. Davis Cup team won the battle of the rattles Saturday with an unusual protest, but fell to the rackets of Michael Stich and Eric Jelen. Dave Stockton, a two-time PGA champion, replaced Ray Floyd as the American captain. And Bernard Gallacher, a baby-faced battler from Scotland, became the European captain, succeeding Tony Jacklin, who brought European golf to the fore with wins in '85, '87 and '89. Europe is led by Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal of ir i U 7 y4 Dave Stockton Spain, Nick Faldo of England and Ian Woosnam of Wales. '"it David Pate and Scott Davis played at times like a mixed-up doubles team, bewildered on the clay and losing, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4, 6-4, as Stich and Jelen trimmed the U.S. lead to 2-1 in the best-of-5 semifinal series. That left it up to Jim Courier or Andre Agassi to try and close out the series today. Courier, winner of the French Open on a similar red clay court, plays the first match against Stich, the Wimbledon champion who looked awkward on the clay in his opening loss to Agassi. 3' 'Zl L v. . r T BY BOB GREEN The Associated Press KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. On that day in 1985 when the Ryder Cup came home, the director of the European PGA Tour said to an American friend, "You've carried the banner for many years. We hope to do as well in the future." Six years and two successful defenses after Ken Schofield said those words, European golfers still lay claim to the title of best golfers in the world. An American team will try to take back that title when the biennial Ryder Cup Matches start Friday on this island off the South Carolina coast. There is no clear-cut favorite, just as there has not been since Europe's victory at The Belfry on the English midlands in 1985. It changed the Ryder Cup from a dreary exhibition into an exciting fixture on the golf calendar. The attitude of Corey Pavin, the leading money-winner on the American tour this year, is typical. "I had only one goal starting the season," he said. "To make the Ryder Cup team. Now that I've done that, I have another goal: to play on a winning Ryder Cup team." The Europeans repeated their triumph at The Belfry with a 15-13 victory at Dublin, Ohio in 1987 and retained the cup with a 14-14 tie in 1989, again at The Belfry in England. Their six-year hold is unique in Ryder Cup history, which began in 1927 when Samuel Ryder, a wealthy British seed merchant, put up a cup for play between pros from the U.S. and Britain. The United States still holds an overwhelming victory margin, 21-5-2 overall, including 17-1-1 from the end of World War II through 1983. The U.S. holds a 3-2-1 advantage since the team was expanded from Britain to Europe in 1979. Both sides have changed enormously in the two years since the tie in England. The Associated PressTom Riggs I Michael Stich, right, and Eric Jelen celebrate their victory over the United States team of David Pate and Scott Davis. European newcomers are Englishmen Steve Richardson, David Gilford and Paul Broadhurst, David Feherty of Northern Ireland and Colin Montgomerie of Scotland. Former Cup players on the team are Mark James of England, Sam Torrance of Scotland and Germany's Bernhard Langer. Stockton raised some eyebrows when he used his two wild-card choices to select former captain Floyd, 48, and Chip Beck to his 12-man team. His veterans include Lanny Wadkins, 41, and Hale Irwin, 46, along with U.S. Open champ Payne Stewart, Fred Couples, Paul Azinger and Steve Pate. He also has Pavin and Steve Pate among his more reliable players. Mark O'Meara, who has a questionable back, is playing in Japan this week, while Mark Calcavecchia and Wayne Levi are fighting prolonged slumps. The format calls for four foursome matches (two-man teams playing alternate shots on the same ball) and four four-ball matches (with scoring based on the better ball of each two-man team) both Friday and Saturday. Sunday will be given over to 12 singles matches. Each match is worth one point, with one-half point going to each team on matches that are even after 18 holes. love after Pate had been broken for 2-4. But in the tiebreaker, the Germans won six of the final seven points, the last three on Jelen's service winner, overhead and backhand volley. "The tiebreaker was a big key," Davis said. "It was a big turnaround. Our support was a little taken out because after that we were always coming from behind. The fans were frustrated like we were." American fans in Kemper Arena. A small group of Germans jumped up and chanted loudly after virtually every point, while the Americans mostly watched in a silence that reflected the soporific play of Davis and Pate. "The German spectators made more noise than the Americans . . . and that's frustrating for them," Stich said. The American players briefly showed some spark in the first set, when they broke Stich's service at The winner will play in the final in November against France, which beat Yugoslavia in the other semifinal. After winning a protest to the International Tennis Federation to keep several hundred German fans from twirling New Year's-type noisemakers between points, the U.S. pair of Davis and Pate, making their Davis Cup debut, could do little to stop Stich and Jelen. The German fans still made more noise than the 10,000-plus AUTO PAINTING I PMFlnnfj Gliis Meek naij refill 'V. ,, f SEPTEMBER lEatittrHr SPECIAL SAVE $5000 at nhOuS Shopsmith is putting on a special demonstration in your area!

ACRYLIC ENAMEL INCLUDES REDS & METALLICS SEAL COAT 5 YEAR GUARANTEE France reaches Cup final THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PAU, France Guy Forget and Arnaud Boetsch routed a makeshift Yugoslav doubles team Saturday to move France into the final of the Davis Cup, which it last won in 1932. France has reached only two finals since then, in 1933 when its six-year winning streak ended, and in 1982, when it lost to the United States 4-1. Forget, ranked No. 6 in the world, teamed with Boetsch, a Davis Cup newcomer, for a 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Slobodan Zivoji-novic and Srdjan Muskatirovic, ranked 439th and yet to qualify for a full-fledged pro tour event. With two singles victories Friday, France took an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the best-of-5 semifinal. "With our real team, we would have had a better chance than France," said Zivojinovic. He was referring to Goran Ivanisevic and Goran Prpic, both top 20 players, who quit the Davis Cup team because of the fighting between their breakaway republic of Croatia and the Serbian-dominated federal government.
