THE COURIER-JOURNAL, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1983 C 3 PjlUMjl'.;, o;rr-nrtt' 'ii"lll1?H"'""C"r.' T"''.rt''X'"r H" ' "i if'SfrWy' '''"t"''!?'1 1 v-'fw'fr3'fN'W--' Van Patten verbally attacks cEnroe after loss in tourney M Compiled from AP DUpttchw Top-seeded John McEnroe scored a 7-5, 6-2 victory over fellow American Vince Van Patten last night, but then came under a blistering verbal attack from his opponent as the $315,000 Benson and Hedges Grand Prix tennis tournament at Wembley, England, erupted into controversy. The win put McEnroe in the quarterfinals of a tourney he has won four times in the past five years. After the match, Van Patten, a part-time film actor ranked 82nd in the world, refused to shake hands. Then, in full view of the half-filled Wembley Arena, he launched into a courtside verbal attack on McEnroe, who had been warned for ball abuse in the opening game of the match but subsequently had kept his temper under control. When he picked up his rackets to head off court, Van Patten was loudly booed. When McEnroe followed him to the dressing room, the boos immediately turned to cheers. At a press conference afterward, Van Patten said he had told McEnroe: "I don't want to see or speak to you anymore." Accusing the Wimbledon champion of "gamesmanship and intimidation," Van Patten said: "I don't like him. Off court we're supposed to be friends. But once he gets on court, he psyches up the officials and tries to hit you with the ball, and I'm not going to take this stuff anymore." Earlier, Jimmy Connors beat fellow American Hank Pfister 6-4, 6-1 but was fined $1,000 for obscene behavior on the court. Keith Johnston, the tournament supervisor, fined Connors $500 for an audible obscenity and $500 for a visual obscenity. The two warring factions In world tennis patched up their quarrel and agreed to cooperate in staging one circuit in 1985. The Men's International Professional Tennis Council announced after a four-day meeting that it had reached a settlement with Lamar Hunt's World Championship Tennis. Marshall Happer, administrator of the MIPTC, said that WCT would run three major tournaments as part of the 1984 Grand Prix the WCT final at Dallas, the WCT Tournament of Champions at New York and the WCT World Doubles Championships at London. SPORTS BEAT In addition, WCT will run four "super series" tournaments two in 1985 and one each in '86 and '87. All of those WCT events will be part of the Grand Prix, which is run by the MIPTC BASEBALL Free-agent outfielder Ruppert Jones is interested in playing for the Cincinnati Reds, according to Jones' agent, Dick Moss. Jones, 28, who hit .233 with 12 homers and 49 RBIs for the San Diego Padres last season, was chosen only by the Reds, Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians in the draft, making him eligible to negotiate with all the major-league teams. Meanwhile, the Reds released pitcher Rich Gale and assigned pitchers Keefe Cato and Mike Dow-less and outfielders Jeff Jones and Ron Little to Indianapolis. They also promoted pitchers Curt Hei-denrelch, John Franco and Mike Smith, infielder Wade Rowdon and outfielder Paul O'Neill. " Cleveland Indians general manager Phil Seghl declined comment on a copyright television report by Cleveland station WKYC-TV that the team has been sold to New York real- estate developer Donald Trump. WKYC reported that Trump, who recently bought the New Jersey Generals of the United States Football League, had bought the Indians for as much as $34 million and that Indians president Gabe Paul would resign in December. The sale would be contingent on league approval. The Baltimore Orioles were awarded a record $65,487.70 per player for winning the 1983 World Series, and the Philadelphia Phillies received a record full share of $44,473.31 for losing a figure that topped any previous winner's share in the Series. Included in the figures released by the commissioner's office was an unusual split of one Phillies' share for managers Pat Corrales and Paul Owens, each of whom received $22,236.66. Both figures surpassed the previous winners' share of $43,279.69 of the 1982 St. Louis Cardinals. FOOTBALL Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson, a former Dallas Cowboys linebacker charged with five felony sex and drug counts in an alleged assault on two girls, has been admitted to a hospital for drug use, his attorney said. Henderson, 30, who once admitted having a cocaine habit that cost him $10,000 a week, was "in very bad shape," said attorney Arnold Barry Gold. Meanwhile, Municipal Court Judge Elvira S. Austin postponed Henderson's arraignment until Nov. J8 after Gold requested a delay, court clerk Patsy Kreager said. HORSE RACING Jockey Jean Cruguet underwent surgery for a ruptured spleen and was listed in stable condition at Long Island Jewish Hospital after his mount fell earlier in the day during the fifth race at Aqueduct. The French-born rider was hurt when his mount, Whitewalls, stumbled coming out of the gate and kicked the fallen jockey. GOLF The United States took an 8-0 lead over a Japanese team in the first round of the $440,000 U.S.-Japan Goidwin Cup at Kobe, Japan.
