Young Chris Steals Wimbledon's Heart Thursday, June 29, 1972 Philadelphia Inquirer 27 WI&BLEDON, England (AP). Little Chri.5 Evert won the hearts of Bridsh tennis fans Wednesday with a fighting victory in her debut in the Wimbledon Championships.': The,; 17-year-old prodigy from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., after" twice trailing in the final set, beat Valerie Ziegen-fuss of San Diego, 1-6, 6-3, 6-3, in a surging finish. A packed and excite d crowd of 9,000 saw Miss Evert win her first match ever at Wimbledon. Millions more watched on television. CHIUS' TRIUMPH highlighted a successful day for American players, bit Clark Graebner of New York fell before - an old rival, second- seeded Hie Nastase of Romania, and popular, aging Pancho Gonzales bowed to a young Australian, Colin Di-bley. Billie Jean King of Long Beach, Calif., a three-time Wimbledon winner, advanced to the third round along with Chris, beating Sharon Walsh of San Rafael Calif., 6-2, 6-0. The fantastic popularity of Wimbledon was undimmed by the absence of the World Championship Tennis pro starts. NEVERTHELESS, MORE than 31,000 fans poured into the All-England Club. "Thre's nothing like this at Forest Hills," said Miss Evert, who admitted she was awed by the scene. "All these television cam eras it seems that everyone in this country is watching the matches. Millions of people with their eyes on you it's fantastic." Chris was tense in the first set and made an unusual number of errors. MISS ZIEGENFUSS her teammate in the United States' victory over Britain in the Wightman Cup this month read Miss Evert's game well and moved smartly to cut off a stream of cross-court forehands, shots which usually bring in the points for Chris. Miss Ziegenfuss moved forward and attacked in that set, but later retreated to her baseline. That was when Chris came fighting back. Even in the final set Miss Evert trailed at 2-3 after dropping her service twice. But as the tension mounted in the crowd, Chris became more and more composed with every shot and reeled off four games in a row for the victory. GRAEBNER'S DUEL with Nastase ,the No. 2 seed, was disappointingly one-sided. With Graebner hitting a stream of double-faults and other erratic shots, Nastese won, 6-3, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2. Graebner and . Nastese walked off the center court at the end of the match with their arms round each other's shoulders. It was in contrast to the last match they played when they almost came to blows and Nastase stormed off the court. That was at the Royal Albert Hall in London last January.

Miss Blalock, who is preparing for today's start of the women's National Open at Mamaroneck, N. Y., filed suit after the LPGA suspended her for a year on a charge of cheating. Judge Charles Moye of the U. S. District Court at Atlanta issued a preliminary injunction Wednesday to prevent the LPGA from barring its leading money winner until her case comes to trial. THIS MEANS Miss Blalock can continue playing in all LPGA tournaments, including the George Washington Classic. The U. S. Open is run by the U. S. Golf Association which had not recognized the suspension. "It's just good to know that I can play golf but I'm glad I've saved a little money," said Miss Blalock, who described herself as "ecstatic." "I may have to sell my house to keep playing but I will do it." Disposal of the property could be necessary because Judge Moye ruled that all of Jane's future golf winnings would be put in a trust fund, pending the outcome of the case. JUDGE MOYE SAID he was extending the injunction because golf was the only "trade in which she (Miss Blalock) can employ her talents and skills." He said "evidence of the record so far . . . would clearly support a jury finding that the suspension was restraint of trade." The former school teacher, who has earned $38,286.09 in her third pro year, said Judge Moye's ruling will allow her to play with a freer mind. "I haven't been able to hit a decent chip shot in two weeks," she said. "It's a shot which requires total concentration. I feel now like I did the morning after I won the Dinah Shore Tournament." THE RULING was not expected to incite cheers from Miss Blalock's rivals in the Open. Many of them signed a petition that urged the LPGA to stiffen its original probation ruling to a year's suspension until June 1973. The judge said 29 golfers signed the petition. Now they will be her foes in the Open on a course that is particularly suited to her game. Winged Foot CC's long, narrow fairways also are suitable for polfers such as Kathy Whitworth and Mickey Wright. Blazers to Name Creighton GM? Continued from 1st Spts. Page and Creighton and appointed Larry Popein as coach. THE BLAZERS have hired John McKenzie as a player-coach but need someone to manage the bench when the former Boston Bruin star is on the ice. Creighton would fit that position nicely due to his awareness of the problems inherent in coaching and playing simultaneously. Bryan Campbell, a fringe center with the Chicago Black Hawks, was also reported ready to sign with the Blazers. A rugged center iceman. Campbell did not receive much notice because he played behind two of the NHL's finest center in Stan Mikita and Pit Martin. Creighton started his NHL career with the Boston Bruins in 1948 and was twice named a league all-star. He retired from the NHL in 1960. Creighton scored 140 goals and 174 assists in 616 game NHL career. w w -V j:--:-:vv v;-;.;: - -yy :-:-:-:-:-:-:-: AP Wirephoto Wimbledon's Sweetheart Swings Away 17-year-old Chris Evert flashes winning form 'Chinese Standoff,' Says USAC Official WOMEN'S SINGLES First Round Rosemary Casals, San Francisco, beat Landy Kaligis, Indonesia, 4-4, 4-3.

"I regret this inconvenience but I am certain you can appreciate the problems we are facing at this time." It was signed by the governor.
