The Sydney Morning Herald, Tuesday, Jan. 16, 1962 LAYER TRIUMPHS OVER WEARY EMERSON IN AUST. TITLE CHAMPION WAS "ON THE BALL" ft By ALAN CLARKSON Rod Laver left no doubt that he is the best amateur in the world in winning: the Australian singles championship at White City yesterday. Laver climaxed a brilliant season when he took 108 minutes to beat defending champion Roy Emerson in four sets, 8-6, 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, to win the title for the second time in three years. It was a fitting climax to a most successful season for Laver, but a bitter disappointment for Emerson. Without detracting from Laver's grand performance, Emerson was nowhere near the peak physical fitness he would have liked. He has taken a tennis battering over the last 48 hours, and from the start of the third set it was obvious he was too tired to with stand the Laver onslaught CASUAL LAVER EXCELS by ADRIAN QU1ST Casual Rod Laver'i ex Inordinary capacity for the unexpected enabled him to beat Roy Emerson in the Australian singles final yesterday. In the first set, Emerson led 6-5 and 15-40 on Laver's service, but Laver unleashed two powerful deliveries which hit within two inches of the service line and were virtually unplayable. He held service and then broke Emerson's delivery with a series of vicious over-spinning drives. Laver went on to win the set, 8-6, but then immediately proceeded to lose the next seven games in a row. Admittedly, Emerson increased the pressure of his service and his fantastic ability to cover the court and retrieve seemingly impossible shots gave him many unexpected points. UNEXPECTED Laver retaliated in the third set by knocking three magnificent backhands past Emerson to lead 3-1. And once again the unexpected happened when he commenced unleashing those heavy overspin shots which left Emerson completely nonplussed. If Laver maintains the outstanding form he has shown in Australia this year I see no reason why he could not vin Wimbledon again. He will be available to defend the Davis Cup next year, and, with Emerson also playing first-class tennis, it would be almost impossible for any nation to take the Cup away from Australia this year. Yesterday s match was the fifth he has played since late on Saturday afternoon, and the intense program took toll even of his great stamina. On Saturday and Sunday Emerson played two singles and two doubles matches with Sunday night's five-set doubles final finishing tust on midnight. In those two days he played a total of 16 sets for 184 games. Yesterday he had massage on his legs to try to ease the strain before he went on for his singles match against Laver. He tried as hard as he could, but that little extra he tried to bring out in his game when the pressure was right on in the third and fourth sets just would not come. After the match, Laver said that he thought it was unfair for Emerson to have to play the singles so close on top of his other gruelling matches. "He has had the legs run off him in the last couple of days, Laver said. I have never seen Roy so weary in a match as he was today. "WASHED OUT' Emerson would not offer his crowded program as an excuse for his defeat. "Rod was just too good," Emerson said. "But I must admit I have played a lot of tennis over the last couple of days and did feci a bit washed out. "It wasn't the number of matches, but the lateness of the doubles final which did not finish until midnight." It was a tine tribute to Emerson's fighting ability that he did so well. the match was by no means one-sided, and cer tainly provided the crowd of 2,.suu with some ot the best tennis seen in an Australian final for some years. tmerson played superb tennis in the second set to break Laver's service three times and take the set without losing a game. In the gripping third set Emerson saved seven set points on his own service in the ninth game, and two on Laver's service in the next game, before losing the tenth. Laver's triumph was a fitting reward for a wonder ful season. Since his return from overseas after winning Wim bledon and being runner-up in the American championships, he has won the Queensland, Victorian and N.S.W. grasscourt titles. He was beaten in the semi-final of the South Australian by Neale Fraser, and in the final of the Australian hardcourt championships at Rockdale by Bob Hewitt. He was Australia's number one singles player in the Davis Cup and won both his singles matches. Laver now is on his way to achieving his ambition of winning the grand slam of major tennis titles the Australian, French, Wimbledon and American crowns. And as for professional offers, Laver said he would think about them if he won another couple of big titles. There is no doubt that Laver is one of the most gifted tennis players I have watched. He has been called a left- handed- Hoad on many oc casions, and that certainly sums him up. Men's singles Snah It. Laver iuio.i ocai h. emerson ua .

Tennis May End 'Even The Australian tennis championships which concluded at White City yesterday may "break even." Bad weather, which forced the postponement of two of the scheduled nights' play and caused the loss of two days during the championships, seriously reduced the financial return. Officials believe that had rain not Interrupted the program, they would have made a profit. The best "gate" was on Sunday when just on 1,500 was taken from the two sessions. The championships have shown that night tennis is here to stay at least as far as N.S.W. and Victoria are con. cerned. There seems no doubt that night matches will be played during the NS.VV. championships next November. Stewards Place Ban On Two Top Pacers Harold Park stewards last night barred the pacers Imawinner and Colonel Scott for two months from racing on all tracks in N.S.W. Colonel Scott and Imawinner both broke at the start of their races, Colonel Scott (6-4 fav.) finished a distant fifth in the Open Class Handicap. Imawinner (5-4 fav.), last at least 50 yards soon after the start of the Hunter River 1962 v AUSTRALIAN MEN'S SINGLES TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP M won with 1 MAXPIV i V TENNIS RACKET V rTfil PLAY REALLY WELL. WITH DUNLOP Handicap, produced a strong finish to be fourth. Imawinner and Colonel Scott had offended similarly in races at Harold Park recently. Under a new rule, horses barred at Harold Park are automatically stopped from racing on all other tracks in the State. Ron O'Brien, who trains and drives Colonel Scott was upset at the stewards' action and said he would appeal. Imawinner's trainer-drivci Percy Hall said he considered it "unfair" for his horse to be barred from all tracks for two months. SEVERE ACTION Recently the N.S.W. Trot ting uiud committee instructed its stewards to take severe action against horses who break at the start or those who are inconsistent Imawinner is owned bv Mrs C. Fitzpatrick, wife of iN.a.w. r.C. committeeman Mr R. E. Fitzpatrick. In their busiest meeting of the season, stewards last night: Suspended veteran driver Sutton McMillan for one month for alleged care less driving on Weddine Lou (100-1) in the Second Quali fying Makes.

QBMM UN WdDIMK Barrier trials on Friday will decide the immediate programs for star sprinters Wenona Girl, Young Brolga, Lady Cornelian and Kilshery. Sky High also will make his reappearance at Rosebery on Friday. Wenona Girl and Young Brolga are both owned by Mr W. Longworth, chair man of the S.T.C. committee. Mr Longworth last n.uhi said there was a possibility that the more forward of Wenona Girl and Young Brolga would run in the 1.500 Challenge Stakes on Saturday week. The two horses were among the 18 entries the A.J.C. yesterday received for the Challenge Stakes. Both Wenona Girl and Young Brolga are expected to race prominently in Fri day's trials. Both are under considera tion for racing at the Melbourne autumn meetings. 'They will have to be in top form and also weighted to our satisfaction before definite plans are made for a trip to Melbourne. Mr Longworth said. Lady Cornelian also is an entry for the Challenge N.Z. PACER FOR PERTH Champion New Zealand pacer Cardigan Bay will start in the Inter-Dominion Championship with Sydney reinsman Bill Wilkins as his driver. The 30,000 pacing championship starts at Perth s Gloucester Park track on February 21. An A.A.P. message from Auckland yesterday said that owner, Mrs A. Dean, had confirmed the Australian trip for Cardigan Bay. Last Thursday, Mrs Dean claimed Cardigan Bay would be scratched because the trainer. Peter Wolfcn-den, was unable to spare the time to make the trip. Yesterdav . Mrs . Dean -MM "a 'it l BILL WILKINS said it was simply a ques tion of her "changing her mind." Cardigan Bay had eased in the market following the announcement he would not start, but last night book makers again had him a clear-cut Championship tavourite. INCENTIVE New Zealand and West Australian trotting authori ties on Friday announced they had combined to offer a special 1,000 travelling subsidy to the owners of three selected New Zealand pacers as an incentive to make the long journey to Perth. This special subsidy could have influenced Mrs Dean in her surprising change ot plans for Cardi gan Bay. Eastwod R.U. Side For N.Z.

Cricket Association after it has in vestigated certain aspects of me proposal. The association "in com mittee" last night discussed for some time the question or tne match. It agreed that a decision last night was not possible ana mat the Andrew's Decision Amazes Official Top swimming official Mr Syd Grange last night described Jan Andrew'i decision lo (urn professional u "most unfortunate." "Miss Andrew had only scratched the surface of her ability and is a decided loss to Australian swimming. Mr Grange said. Miss Andrew threw i nomnsncll into women swimming when she announced she would become a professional coach, A bronre medallist at the I960 Olympic Games in Rome, she was regarded as a certain gold medal winner at the Empire Games in Perth next November. Mr Grange said he very much regretted her decision. "She has the ability to be a world champion." Mr Grange said.

A further clash between Neville Hayes and Kevin Berry in the 110 yards butterfly, and Alan Wood and Bob Windle in the 440 yards freestyle will be among the highlights of an interesting program H.P.

Stage Set For CM Exciting Shield executive should review the question. l30Acc,n ,0 " " J" RANDWICK TOMORROW F.tii.'S.A.', Stiff Task!! BRISBANE, Monday. Sheffield Shield captain Ken Mackay set the stage for a spectacular finish to the the match against South Australia when he declared Queensland second innings closed tonight. Queensland, by stumps, had scored 247 runs for the 'ass of only two wickets. This was due to a bril liant second-wicket partnership of 165 in 146 minutes hy Sam Trimble and lorn Veivers. With their first innings lead of 122, Queensland have an overall lead of 369. South Australia, set the task of scoring 370 runs in 330 minutes tomorrow to win, must attack from the start. With batsmen of the calibre of 1 es Favell, John Lill, Garfield Sobers and Ian McLachlan in the team Mjutti Australia are equipped to get the runs. But whether they can get those runs in the time against the Queensland at tack spearheaded by Wesley Hail, remains to be seen. Hall, in a magnificent burst of bowling in the first innings, took six for 47, causing South Australia to collapse for 103. BEST DISPLAY Sam Trimble save his best batting display of the season today to be not out II j at stumps. This was Trimble's fourth Shield century. He showed his return to top form today with skilful placing of his strokes to penetrate the field, particularly on the off. Veivers. scratchy at the start of his innings, apparently decided to hit himself out of the batting doldrums. At 14 he swuna a ball from Sincock high over mid-wicket and Hawke, run ning in from the boundary got under the ball but had to look into the sun and dropped the catch. The unfortunate Hawke was also on the spot back ward of square-leg when a hot chance new off Veivers' bat at 90 from the bowling of Brooks and Hawke again failed to hold the catch. But Hawke had previously taken a splendid catch at the Shield Final On Jan. 24 The final of the N.S.W.- CA.'s A.W. Green Shield competition will be played at the 5.C.O. No. 2 on January 24. The hnal of the Poidevin- Gray competition will be played at North same spot to dismiss Dos Bull, and he avenged the dropping of Veivers by clean-bowling him at 94 with yorker which dipped in late. Further rain this morning delayed play, which did not start until 1.44 p.m.. nine minutes after the scheduled resumption after lunch.

India beat England In a Test cricket merles for the first lime when they won the Fifth Test today by 128 runs. England's tailenders made last-ditch stand to avert defeat, but the clever Indian spin attack took its toll and soon put the issue beyond duuht. The crowd, keen to con gratulate the Indians, swarmed round the entrance to the pavilion and. break ing through the police cordon, charged toward the dressing rooms. Police, using sticks, managed to restore order and finally drove thousands from the ground. India also won the Fourth Test and look the five-match series with two victories and three draws. 3rd TEST WIN It was their third Test win against England in 29 matches. The last time India met England in a series was in 1959, when they lost all five l ests in England. They owed their victory today to the spinners Duram, who took tour tor 11, and Borde. three for 39. F.ncland. who had re sumed their second innings today at five for 122, faced an almost impossible task of adding 216 runs to win on a pitch taking spin. India had set England to score 338 in 487 minutes in their second innings. With half England's side out for 90 yesterday, India's hopes were high.

Russian Tour Is Proposed The Australian Old Col legians' cricket team hope to play in Russia on their world tour in 1964. This has raised hopes that an Australian Test team some day will play in Russia. Officials know of no cricket organisation in Russia at the moment. The Old Collegians in 1959 and 1960 made world tours at their own expense. They play matches in England and in lesser-known cricket countries. Their brochure, inviting players to subscribe to the tour in 1964, says it is intended to play, and also to coach, in Russia. The Old Collegians some time ago made formal application to the Australian Board of Control for permission to make the tour and to carry out a "cricket mission" in Russia. The board said it had no objection to the visit to Russia, provided the arrangements were made with appropriate authorities. The secretary to the Board of Control, Mr Alan Barnes, said yesterday that the board bad not consid ered any suggestion that its own Test teams should visit Russia. TURF Gosford fo be run Today 12.
