Newcombe relies on a big service and is capable of driving opponents off the court with his whiplash placements.

Bungert, a 28-year-old lefthan- der, was appearing in his third semi-final while Taylor, also a southpaw, has been succeeding with a wicked serve. If there was little cheer among the U.S. men's contigent, it was offsel by an unexpectedly strong showing in the women's division, where Americans claimed three of the four semifinal berths. Billie Jean King of Alhambra, Calif,, the No. 1 seed and defending champion, had been expected to survive this long. But Rosemary Casals, a San Francisco teenager and the new darling of Wimbledon, and pigtailed Kathy Harter of Seal Beach, Calif., came from the pack to win semi-final placings.
