PACE TEN NOVEMBER 4, 1951 TIae Sunday Herald Sporting Scrlion Ayre No Match For Brilliant Sedgman BRISBANE, Saturday. Tie bogey of Frank Sedgman and aa eager crowd of 200 reduced giant-killer Ian Ayre to a second-rater in to-day's State singles final. Sedgman took only 58 minutes to dispose of Ayre, 6-2. 6-1, 6-2. The match fell flat by contrast with the brilliant exhibition of Lewis Hoad and Ken Kosewall in the junior singles, which Hoad won. 11-9. 1-6. 6-0. For most of the 58 minutes, Sedgman was coasting, winning points almost at will by powerful aervices and acutely angled smashes, but mosdy by bustling Ayre into errors. Fleet-footed, hard-hitting Sedgman, with his blend of ferocity and delicacy, kept Ayre on the run and stretching all the time. Only the highest class shots were of any use against the re-leafless Srdgman, and in eon-atandy trying for these, Ayre icpeatediy harried his strokes and fefl into errors. The crowd got few glimpses of the real Sedgman. Ke was rarely extended and rallies were few. A lucky net cord, an ace, and ' two strong first deliveries gave Ayre his opening service after deuce. Then the sorry procession began. Sedgman cracked two aces for a love game, broke through BOXER WAITS! AT HOSPITAL LONDON, November 3 ( A.A .P.). Former world middleweight champion Kxodoiph T orpin is Ixura-farirung a vigil at the Birmingham Hospital, where 22-year-old coloured boxer Frank Sibai is lying seavV coawjons. Sibai was rushed to the hospital on Friday night after he collapsed at the end of a stage bout with Turpin. He was reported yesterday to be semi-conscious, but not on the danger list. Sibai was admitted with a suspected fracture of the skull, but an X-ray revealed nothing. Ayre's to 15. and the only points nc tosi on nis next service was a double fault. Another few minutes of Sedgmaa's crisp, effordeai atroke-auking and a 5-1 was called against Ayre. Ayre also recovered from IS- 40 to deuce on Sedgman's next service, but a volleyed placement ana a wean drive by Ayre decided the set 6-2. From then on it was all Sedg man. The brilliant tennis of the day was unquestionably the Hoad- KosewaU match. Evenly matched, they exploited every shot in the game, and their rallies tnniiea the crowd. Hoad. one of the fastest servers in Australia to-day, found to his surprise that Roscwall's reputedly weak service was now capable of many aces. dull I tW F. Sedt CVic.t. beat 1.

Notwithstanding the strain of all these events, Wal Young claimed in Brisbane that they were still a happy band of men and women at the end of the tour. Too Many Parties I AM not alone in the opinion that interstate matches are drifting rapidly towards the social rather than the competitive side. Official and unofficial outings night after night during interstate matches are not good training, particularly for the younger members of a side. In other times there was sufficient discipline to regulate these off-tbe-green arrangements. Did Yon Know? J?VEBY BOWL must, from time to time, be retested by an official tester every seven years. That means that some bowls must be re-tested after the end of this year. Bowlers would do well to see that their bowls comply with the law before the Pennants commence early in January. Sands Plans 'Awry' From Our Staff Correspondent. lVTEW YORK, Not. 3. Dave Sands's manager Tom J.1 Maguire said yesterday that he had been disappointed with the result of Sands's brief American tour. "I wanted Dave to have a fight in Madison Square Garden before leaving but unfortunately our plans went a little awry from the beginning," Maguire said. "Our real aim was a bout with Ray Robinson but the position here is very obscure. "However it is possible we will get that match next year when we come abroad again." Maguire, Sands and trainer Joe Ruggero plan to fly to London to-day. Sands will begin training in London the day after he arrives in preparation for his fight with West Indian middleweight Joe Randy Pompey at Harringay Stadium in two weeks. KEEN SHIELD GOLF By LES RYAN Allen Black and Lee Patterson (The Lakes) will meet John Curtis and Dal Cockerel! (Australian) in the final of the Killara Shield foursome at La Perouse next Saturday. In the semi-final yesterday Black and Patterson beat the N.S.W. club pair, Ralph Davies and Lee Bowes, 2 and 1. Curtis and Cockerell won the other semi-final, beating the Ryde-Parramatla pair, Ron Jennings and Morrie Behringer, 2 and 1. Black and Patterson made a disastrous start, losing the first three holes. They won the fourth and sixth holes, and at the tum were one down. Black and Patterson squared the match at the 10th, when Oavies hit his tee shot into the rough. Bowes did not recover, and it took three to make the green. This was the turning point of the match. Black and Patterson, after halving the 11th and 12th, took the lead when they won the 13th with a birdie score. They were two up when they took the 16th in par figures and bad halved the 17th to win the match 2 and 1. The match in which Cutis and Cockerell beat Jennings and Behringer was always in doubt. Jennings and Behringer won the third hole to take an early lead, but the match was square when Jennings with his tee snot was off the fairway at the fourth. Jennings holed a 60ft chin shot to win the fifth with a birdie three. Curtis and Cockerell squared the match when they won the sixth. Cockerell sank a 15ft putt for a birdie two. and be and Curtis took the lead at the seventh when their opponents bunkered. They, held the lead of one up to the ninth. Curtis holed a 12ft outt to win the 11th. and he and Cockerell had the match in hand with a lead of two up. The 12th hole was halved in par and the 13th in one under. Jennings and Behringer fought back to win the 14th. hut Cockerell won the 15th with a downhill nine-foot putt. The 17th was halved and the match won 2 and 1.

A SPECIAL committee briefed to develop junior golf in all parts of the State was appointed by the N.S.W. Golf Association last Thursday.
