12 THE JOURNAL-NEWS, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1985 icnnis i I AW (V if 1 h 1 1) 'AIM IV ; AJ iV I I , "AH H i lU 1 i A 1 1 I f una repays Sukova . MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Martina Navratilova has won hundreds and hundreds of matches in her career. And her latest triumph was one of the most satisfying ever. Navratilova helped wipe out memories of one of her most bitter defeats by beating Helena Sukova of Czechoslovakia 6-2, 6-2 Tuesday to advance to the semifinals of the $1.5 million Australian Open. It was Sukova who defeated Navratilova in the Australian Open semifinals last year, ending her bid to complete a historic calendar year Grand Slam. This time, it was no contest as the second-seeded Navratiova took her career record against the eighth-seeded Sukova to 9-1 with a ruthless victory in just 56 minutes. "It wasn't a personal vendetta just a professional one," said the Czech-born Navratilova. Navratilova earned a semifinal meeting Thursday with U.S. Open champion Hana Mandlikova, also of Czechoslovakia. Mandlikova defeated sixth-seeded Zina Garrison of the United States 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 in her quarterfinal. The other semifinal will be between defending champion Chris Evert Lloyd of the United States, the top seed, and fifth-seeded Claudia Kohde-Kilsch of West Germany. Kohde-Kilsch on Tuesday ended the run of lOth-seeded Catarina Lindqvist of Sweden by defeating the baseliner 6-4, 6-0, while Evert Lloyd downed seventh-seeded Man-uela Maleeva of Bulgaria 6-3, 6-3. Wimbledon champion Navratilova will welcome a rematch with Mandlikova, whom she beat in the final of the Sydney tournament late last month. Mandlikova, however, displayed some steely resolve in downing Garrison, a formidable grass court opponent. In the men's singles, two-time champion Mats Wilander of Sweden raced past unseeded American Tim Wilkison 7-6, 6-3, 6-3 to move into the final eight. Wilander, 21, aiming to win the fifth Grand Slam title of his career, has dropped only one set in the tournament. He was too consistent and persistent for power-serving Wilkison, from Asheville, N.C. Wilander, unworried by rain showers that interrupted the match early on, took the first set tiebreaker 7-1 and was always in command from that point on. The cool Swede earned a meeting with another two-time champion, South African-born Johan Kriek. ' The rest of the quarterfinal lineup is: Michiel Schapers vs. Stefan Edberg, John McEnroe vs. Slobodan Zivojinovic and John Lloyd vs. Ivan Lendl or Christo Steyn. Early morning rain Tuesday meant there was insufficient time for top-seeded Lendl's match against unseeded South African Steyn to be played Tuesday. Unheralded Dutchman Schapers, who scored a second-round triumph over Wimbledon champion Boris Becker of West Germany, continued his fairytale run in the event. Schapers led American Tim Gul-likson 7-6 when Gullikson was forced to withdraw with severe spasms of the upper and lower back. Schapers, ranked 188th in the world, won the tiebreaker seven points to love before Gullikson decided he had had enough. Lloyd, beaten finalist in the 1977 Australian open, played extremely well to defeat seventh-seeded Joa-kim Nystrom of Sweden 6-2, 1-6, 6-4, 6-7, 6-4. Lloyd, husband of Chris Evert Lloyd, rallied from 0-3 down in the decisive set. "I thought he was never going to lay down and die," admitted Lloyd. Fifth-seeded Edberg of Sweden had to save two match points in the third set before defeating Australian Wally Masur 6-7, 2-6, 7-6, 6-4, 6-2. The tempestuous McEnroe, again embroiled in controversy, was two points away from elimination Monday before battling his way into the quarterfinals of the $1.5 million Australian Open Tennis Championships. Another American, eighth-seeded Tim Mayotte of Springfield, Mass., wasn't as fortunate, being upset by big-serving Slobodan Zivo-jinovich of Yugoslavia 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. Seeking to win this grass court event for the first time and his first Grand Slam singles title of 1985, McEnroe came from two-sets-to-one down and 1-5 in the fourth-set tiebreaker to edge 13th-seeded Henri Leconte of France 5-7, 7-6, 3-6, 7-6, 6-1. The fiesty New York left-hander, who is seeded second in this 96-player field, reeled off six straight points to capture the tiebreaker, then ripped through the fifth set as the 22-year-old Leconte's confidence evaporated. McEnroe's victory, which lasted 3V hours before a jam-packed , . vr If fi5 f - J4- L I I - , ... 1 1 i i &m - " ' I ; V " "Hi2, ftfl ir-iiriniiM . -k,.Mf 0 w, m,i tiih imi w mum iiiiiimi. iriiinmrnwirt'iMm AP John McEnroe hits a forehand in over Henri Leconte, Monday. crowd on an outside court, was marred by another incident. He was given a code violation for an audible obscenity during the match and faces the prospect of his second fine in four days for that offense. The 26-year-old McEnroe was fined $1,250 for an audible obscenity earlier in the tournament a 5-7, 7-6, 3-6, 7-6, 6-1 victory fine that put him over the $7,500 limit and means he will have to serve a 42-day suspension at the conclusion of the event. The suspension could be cut in half if he plays no tennis including exhibitions for 21 days. However, he is not scheduled to play again until January, well after 3 the 21 days is over. Umpire Richard Kaufman lodged the code violation report with Keith Johnson, the Men's International Professional Tennis Council coordinator for the Australian Open. After Johnson spent about an hour considering the report with other officials, he said he had further investigations to make and '1 ' I would announce any fine on Tues day morning. Before the tournament began, McEnroe was reportedly involved in a shoving match with a photographer and allegedly spat at another. McEnroe was stunned after being pushed so hard by Leconte, a member of the French Davis Cup team. 1 "It was a crazy match," he said afterwards. "I just said to myself, 'hang in there and hope for a chance.' "I think I made more use of the chances I got than he did." McEnroe said that Leconte "got down" in the fifth set after losing the tiebreaker and he was able to take advantage of it. Leconte was pleased with the way he played but said it was very disappointing to drop the tiebreaker. "I lost a little bit in my mind when I was 5-1 up in the tiebreaker," the Frenchman said. "After losing the fourth set, though, I was : tired physically." Two-time Australian Open champion Johan Kriek of the United States also advanced into the quarterfinals with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 1 win over unseeded American Jay Lapidus on a day in which rain delayed the start of play for three hours.
