10 THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, MONDAY. JUNE 24. 1946 SURPRISE LOSS BY PAILS; SEGURA'S SPEED LONDON, June 23 (A.A.P.). Sum-moiling the brilliance he had displayed in the first set, F. Segura (Ecuador), beat Dinny Pails (Australia), in the final of the Queen's Club singles championship. With a cry of "Come on, Pancho!" as self-encouragement, the colourful Segura broke through Pails' service in the ninth game of the third set He clinched the match with his own service, winning 6-4, 0-6, 6-4. Critics are unanimous Segura ran himself almost standstill. that to a and Palls's speed, control, stamina, they say, would be de cisive in a five-set match. Segura walked off the court a very tired man. But. although near exhaustion, he summoned just sufficient reserve strength in the final set to retrieve enough shots to win. Segura hastened and achieved victory by brilliant attacking shots from all parts of the court. It was the seventh game that was vital in the first set. Games then were even, but for the first time Segura broke through Path's service. It was a slender lead, but sufficient to give him the set. Outclassed 6-0 Segura was unable to stay with Pails in the second set, which the Australian won to love. t Victory for Pails seemed assured when he led 4-3 in the final set. Segura then called on all his reserves, reproducing the brilliance he had displayed in the first set. He plugged back to take the eighth game and even the scores. He began the ninth game with his self-encouraging cry: "Come on, Pancho!" He clinched the game and opened his service for the 10th game. Segura double-faulted, and Pails greeted his laps with a ioud: "Come on. Pancho!" ' Segura held bis service to clinch the match. "Never Like Loser" The reaction of critics is implicit in the comment of the "Daily Express" that Pails "never looked like losing until he actually lost." Tactical errors by Pails lost him the match, says the "Sunday Dispatch." "Knowing that Segura thrives on speed. Pails overdid his campaign of slowing up play, says the paper. "Also, he lost many drop shots because of Segura's quickness. "He should have abandoned this style of play." Finals resulted: Mea's Sinflett F, Seaura (Ecuador) beat D. Pails (Australia). 6-4, 0-6, 6-4. Man's Dnnblast O. Brown and P. Palls (Australia) beat P. Buaer and M. Uuoodcr (Belgium). 6-1. n-4. SVowrn's Sinatra: Miss Pauline Belt rU.S.) heat Miss Marsaret Osborne (U.S.). 6-S. e-J, 6-3. Womea'e Dmrnktt M. Brourh and M Osborne 'U.S.' beat Missel P. Bell and P. Hart (U.S.). 6-2. 6-1. Samuel Hardy has been appointed to referee the Mexico-United States Davis Cup tie on June 28, 29, 30. Hardy captained the winning Davis Cup team in Australia in 1920. The Mexican team comprises Daniel Hcrandez (captain), the brothers Amando. and Rolando Vega and Francisco Guerrero. 1 Soccer Tour Likclv To Although official information is awaited, Australian Soccer Association officials are confident that the visit of the Chinese team next month will take place despite difficulties. Mr. Ah Hoe, the millionaire' Chinese sponsoring the visit, proved in negotiations for the 1941 tour his determination to finish anything he starts. There are many problems to be solved. These include accommodation, travelling facilities, and procuring grounds for State and Test matches. There is also the opinion of several State associations that it is too late in the season for an international visit. Australian Association secretary. Mr. F. R. Druery, last night said: "All States will be advised and full preparations will be made for 'the tour." It is understood that the Chinese team is assembled in Singapore awaiting confirmation of arrangements before embarking for Australia. The unbeaten southern competition leader, Leichhardt-Annandale, has established a six points lead. Canterbury-Bankstown, Woonona-Bulli, Metiers, Corrimal. and Gran ville are equal in points in second piace. They have 10 points each. Their places in the competition are assessed on goal averages. With five premiership rounds to go, Leichhardt-Annandale requires only nve points lo win ine southern title. Adamstown and West Wallsend are staging a head and head race for the northern premiership. They are separated by only one point. VIC FLINT- I. y atP.6 VOU N I f HINT. YOU'Ri f V0u"M BKSHT ABOUT V I Ifin a.r GONNA IET y PRETTY SMART. 1 1 THE REASON, TOO.

I 1 1 ' Sl V Trin V7 l Segura's Win Is Warning By John Bromwich If Dinny Pails was playing at his best, Segura's win in the final of the Queen's Club singles title cannot be taken too lightly. It indicates to me at least that the standard of tennis in America possibly is higher than in 1939. Australia must not be over-optimistic or take chances in pre-, paring to defend the Davis Cup. This match was the first meeting between the top-ranking players of Australia and America for seven years. It gave the first lead on the respective standards. Reports on the match suggest to me that Pails was not playing to his best Australian form. Pails was slated to have attempted to slow the game, which is definitely not his style of play. In all his Australian matches he attacks and revels in fast, free hitting. lo change his style would be an experience unknown to Pails in Australian tournaments, but the benefit lo his game no doubt will be reflected at Wimbledon. Not Discouraging I see no reason to be discouraged by the win of Segura. I feel that if Ihey meet in the Wimbledon semi-final. Pails is not likely to repeal, or allow himself to be drawn into, the same tactical error. Being beaten by an equally skilful player al a first meeting means something, hut the bigger test follows in the second meeting. It is usually the better man who wins. Pails has the tennis in his to turn the tables. Ranked third in America last year. Segura is most unorthodox. He uses both hands in executing backhand and forehand drives and the volley. Small and stocky, Segura has unlimited staying power and can go through a five-set match in the same style as a game limited to three sets. Pails was opposed lo one who. by his unorthodoxy, is quite capable ot toppling any cfass player at a first meeting. His style probably tended to make Pails cautious. Apparently Segura was not overawed by Pails's reputation. Also. Segura entered the game with a record of two very good tournament wins over Billy Talbert before the team left for England. Last year Talbert went to the final of the American singles. Difficulties Be Solved FAILS, BUT QUITE FIT Hellenger was all right yesterday after his race in the second division of the Trial Handicap at Rosehill. His trainer. Jack Ryan, explained thai his inspection of the horse after his failure to race up to his position as a 7-4 favourite was routine. 'I'm afraid Hellenger is not as good as his early successes in the country promised." he said. When be wins it will be m a field a lot worse than that which he met on Saturday." Hellenger met with a bad accident during training some time ago. He was severely cut on his off thigh, and for some time it seemed that he would not recover. On Saturday a very big commission was placed on him. Jockey G. Weate. who had ridden him in his two previous engagements. was replaced by W. Fellows, who handled the horse patiently and had him in a good position to challenge in the straight. Weate look the mount on Btanmar and had an easy win. Fellows rode at 8-0. "And I didn't have to waste 81b to do it. either, he said. "My normal riding weight is round about 8-2. so that I can ride at 7-12 if I want to. New Bowling "Hope" For England LONDON, June 23 (A.A.P.). Batsmen never conquered bowlers throughout the six hours of play in the first England v India Test match at Lord's. India made 200 and England lost four for 135. A "natural" wicket was at times a batsman's nightmare. England'; new fast medium bowler. 6ft 4in A. V. Bedser, is considered to have made his place in tngtana s team for Australia secure. He look seven for 49 in 29 overs, with only two brief spells to change ends. ... He never lost his pace or nis lengtn. For India, small, w iry L. Amarnalh, with his short run and vigorous arm work, developed jemendous pace from the pitch. The ball which howled W. R. Hammond, when England's captain seemed set for a big score, was a perfect "sizzler." He, too. did not tire, and kept his length throughout 14 overs. Slow, plodding R- S. Modi, saved India at many critical stages with his innings of 57 not out. Joe Hardstaff wi.s easily the best English batsman, thcugL C Wash-brook was sound. He was unlucky to be dismissed by an amazing diving catch by V. Man-kad. which only one fieldsman in a hundred could have made. Amarnalh dismissed L. Hutton and D. Compton with successive balls. Hammond stopped the hat-trick but was nearly run out next ball. Scores: INDIA. Pins IflBtsujs. V. M. MERCHANT, e Gir. Bedser If L.

Adams, of Beacons- neld, with 294. In general tournament play I feel I was in good form, getting four eagles, but my putting and approaches were not good. But I think I have a good chance in the Open. With an overnight lead of three strokes. Locke played consistently stylish golf. He came home comfortably to win with a score of 287. Dai Rees and Charlie Ward tied for second place with 289. Rees's driving was outstanding, but he lacked Ward's consistency. Seven strokes behind the leader after three rounds, Rees brought off a lucky 69. Bill Branch was third with 292. following up well after being seven over par at the third. Henry Cotton and I found the going easy, bul our putting was shocking. TEST PRICES HIGHER Prices of admission to the cric ket Tests against England next season will he increased to meet extra expenses which the Australian Board of Control expects. Chairman of the board, Mr. R. A. Oxlade. said last night he could not forecast the extent of the increase, but it would be decided when the board meets in September. The increase was suggested by the M.C.C. An Australian women's hockey team has been invited lo participate in the Mew Zealand championships next year. LOSING TEAM LODGES PROTEST Eastern Suburbs protester) after it was beaten by St. George by three points (21, 19 -145 to 22, 10142) at Trumper Park yesterday, questioning the eligibility of B. Sullivan. Eastern Suburbs president, Mr. Lea Horton, saidt "St. George has no right to play B. Sullivan, who has been playing "A" grade Junior football. This wUl be the basis of our protest." The winning goal was scored after the final bell rang. J. St. George pocket forward, was awarded a free kick. Michael O'Malley And Ralph Lane THAT MOENDSXl iCDrrtHtW ur ivivn i THE HORSE BET ON DOPED AND RISMAN NOT SURE OF TEST PLACE From Tom Goodman BRISBANE. Sunday. Will Gus RJsman, England's captain, be dropped from the team to play Australia in the second Rugby Lea cue Test here next Saturday week? The question is being freelv asked among close observers alter Risman's disappointing showing both as full-back and goal-kicker in yesterday's match against Queensland,. This followed on his mediocre form in the first Test. His general display yesterday fell much below his exhibition in the second England v N.S.W. same. Both regular full-backs. Martin Ryan and Joe Jones, are now out of action. I believe that the team manager. Walter Popplerxll. who is the sole selector, has in mind playing Ernest ward at lull-back In the second Teat Ward, who has been at centre on this tour, played well at full-back in many Services matches in England. He will he full-back in the match against Wide Bay t Bundaberg on i uesaay. Back To Centre Risman returns to the centre Bundaberg. The chances are that he will remain there for the second Test, with either Jack Kitching or Ted Ward bis partner. It cannot be said, however, that Risman is assured of a place in the Test side. England's third defeat on the tour Queensland won by 25 points to 24 was marked by striking improvement in the Queensland team, and also by the failure of England's inside DacKS. The rugged work of the Queens land pack, combined with the effects of having played in the majority of matcnes, louno tngiands lest tor-wards somewhat ragged in the first half. They fought back superbly in tne second spell. Full-back Joe Jones, who chipped a bone in a hand when he tried to catch the ball with the sun in his eyes at training on Friday, is not expected to play again on the tour. Half-back Dai Jenkins jarred a hand badly on Saturday, but the in jury is responding to treatment. It is thought that no bones have been broken. Tom McCue has been included in the team to plav against Bundaberg. Although his damaced shoulder has improved, it is doubtful whether he will be plaved. The return of Fred Hughes will enable one of the front-row men to be spelled, but Bob Nicholson, who has nbrositis in the side, has not yet trained in Queensland. Both he and Trevor Foster are likely to be on the casualty list for some time. Quecnslanders' Claims BRISBANE, Sunday. Queensland's 25-24 victory over England and the improved form displayed by a reorganised team, suggest that the Australian selectors next Saturday night in Brisbane will have material available with which to strengthen Australia's representation for the second Test on Saturday week. Queensland's three first Test players Westaway and Kay. forwards, and Grice, half-back, all did well yesterday. It would be difficult for the selectors to choose Grice again after his failure in the first Test. With better protection and against weaker half-back opposition, he was a different player yesterday. Queenslanders are pressing the claims for Test selection of Eddie Brosnan and Jack Ryrie. forwards, E. Bowe and H. Melrose, centres, and L, Kenny, right wing. Best Forward Brosnan was Queensland's best forward yesterday. Brosnan may press fellow-policeman. Frank Farrell, for his Test position. Ryrie. another big man, played solidly in the second row. Bowe, who played against N.S.W. in 1941 and has been in the Army, made a big difference to the Queensland backs. He is tall and strong, and be made smothering tackles. Melrose, who. together with the five-eighth. W. Morris, shone in backing up. was fine all round. The new right winger. Len Kenny, ho is fast, but light, was a brilliant opportunist. The Queensland team to meet New South Wales next Saturday is identical with that which heat England. It resulted it a single, leaving St. George loser by two points. The field umpire disallowed the score and gave Trottman another kick. This was because Robertson (East) had run over bis mark before Trottman kicked. With the second attempt Trottman scored a goal to give St, George a win. Immediately Mr. Horton reported iiu 1 vwm YOU WHS VOU f SO WHAT ?

She finished with determination when an opening was provided. r "1 BRAZIER 2 AUBURN FLYING HANDICAPS Passing the half-mile, the winner, Field Captain, was In a handy position on the rails, but no horst la the race teemed to be travelling more kindly than Brazier. It was not long afterwards, however, that the leader, Jamclie, veered out and collided with Brazier, allowing Field Captain to sustain his run on the rails to score narrowly. Patrick Seeks Release From Contest Vic. Patrick. Australian lightweight and welterweight champion, has asked Stadiums Ltd. to release him from his match with Ctarrie Gordon. He told the Stadium manager. Mr. H. Miller, yesterday that he did not want to meet welterweights at present. "1 hope to get Patrick lo change his mind." Mr. Miller said. "Gordon is prepared to make lOst 21b. "I do not blame Patrick for wanting lightweights, hut I have promised him contests with Joe Hall. Eddie Miller, and the Filipino, Battling Sima. after he hghts oordon. Patrick's manager. Ern McQuillan. said: "Patrick is lightweight cham nion. but he has not fought a light weight since he defended his title against Tommy Johns four years ago, "He is always meeting heavier men. and I think he is entitled to the first chance against some of the Filipino lightweights coming here. "The lowest weight for Gordon I would consider is 10 stone. Gordon cannot make that." Boxed With Trainer Leo Heanev owes a lot to his trainer. Bill McConnell. for his knock out win over Lett Fuller in two rounds at Sydney Stadium on Saturday. McConnell donned boxing gloves. and had Heaney throwing right-hand punches at htm for weeks. Heaney had been deficient in countering right-handers. Fuller was unlucky that an im- Rromplu fight in the crowd distracted im just before Heaney knocked him out. Heaney wants Joe Hall as bis next opponent. . Les. Slr&n. who weighs lOst 81b. has declined a match with Dave Sands, who he says is too heavy. He is willing to meet a lighter opponent. Jack McNamee. who has a victory against Sands to his credit, is willing to meet Sands again. Owen and Steve Norrish. who have engagements ahead, boxed at McQuillan's gymnasium yesterday.

It wil' be dealt with at to-night's League meeting. St. George officials immediately held a hurried conference to consider a counter protest. St. George claims that East's 20th man look the field before the injured man he was replacing bad left the ground. As St. George has until 3 o'clock this afternoon to lodge the counter protest, no decision was reached. It was a great finish, with both tides playing excellent football. Brow, , who scored 10 goals for East, was the best man on the ground. The N.S.W. aide to meet Queensland in a fortnight will be announced at to-night's meeting of the League.

Greatest bar to her success has been her disinclination to jump away on terms with her opponents. Trainer Fred Russell, jockey J. Duncan, and the starling boxes have combined to alter all that. On Saturday at Rosehill she was one of the first to get going and she gave a faultless exhibition of galloping for about six furlongs. Then she shied away from the rails and dropped back, but punters are not likely to forget her next time she runs from the six-furlong starting boxes at Canterbury. A race there would suit her. WILLGARD did not run at all well in the first division of the Harris Park Trial Handicap. The soft track did not suit him, but his record and his appearance make it pretty certain that he can do better. CODICIL won the Castle Hill Welter Handicap by only half a head, but it was his first run for some time and he is certain to be improved by the race. He formerly ran In Melbourne, where he has won up to a mile and a half. He looks a welcome addition to the ranks of middle-distance performers in Sydney. BRAZIER will be further improved by his run in the Auburn Flying Handicap. A shorter race probably will suit him belter, and he is well worth following for a slart or two. BLACK LAW NOT SOLD BRISBANE, Sunday. "Black Law has not yet changed hands, and is still in Toowoomba," Mr. W. Williamson, owner of the Mr. Standfast (imp.) colt, said to-day. It was reported from Melbourne on June 5 that Mr. O. Porter, owner of St. Fairy, had bought Black Law for 5.000 guineas. Later Mr. Porter said that a slight hitch had occurred, and the sale was not definitely settled. Jockey E.
