Santana is a big favorite with the British fans and the first European to reach the men's final at Wimbledon in 11 years. "It's understandable, and it doesn't worry me at all," said Ralston, 23-year-old star from Bakersfield, Calif. "Of course they want to see a European win the title. Besides, I read in the papers that Santana is a colorful player. "I'm not. I'm the dour type." Ralston's match was the first installment of America's bid for the big Wimbledon double. Billie Jean Moffitt King of Long Beach, Calif., plays Maria Bueno of Brazil in the women's final Saturday. The last time both titles went o the United States was in 1955, when Tony Trabert won the men's crown and Louise Brough tie women's. Santana, 28, saw his progress o the final as much more than a personal triumph. "I am nothing," he said. "But am happy that Europe is in he final. It is a good thing for European tennis that I have ieen able to do this." * * * Ralston, whose form has been wilding up steadily since the ournament started 11 days ago, aid he was thankful for a tough lassage to the final. On the way won four-setters against Bob jUtz of San Francisco, Aleksander Metreveli of Russia, Keith Jiepraam of South Africa and ~'ierre Darmon of France. Finally, two days ago, he overcame Cliff Drysdale of Africa in a five-setter that lasted nearly three hours. "That's the ideal preparation or the final," Ralston said. Mrs. King downed her old rival, Margaret Smith of Australia, 6-3, 6-3 in the women's semifinals Thursday with a brilliant display of volleying. Miss Bueno overcame the last British hope, Mrs. Ann Jones, 6 3, 9-11, 7-5. Miss Smith has won the title wice and was the defending champion. Miss Bueno has been :hampion three times, in 1959, 1960 and 1964. Ralston and Mrs. King are partners in the mixed doubles and have reached the semifinals. iiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinuuiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiii By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PITCHING - Chris Short, Philadelphia pitched a six-hit- ;er and struck out 13 as the Phillies edged the New York Mets 1-0.
