STARTS TODAY fUtURII m * M4 NEWfrHERALD, PMAiNiClty, Fit., FrltUy, June 28,1W4 Page to C hris Completes Win In Rain-Mar re d Wimbledon WIMBLEDON, England (UP!) - Teenager! BJom Borg and Chris even played Thursday with the mastery which Won them the Italian and French Open titles to complete rain delayed matches and move Into the third round of the all* England lawn tennli champion* ships. Evert, the lft-year-old second aeed from Port Lauderdale, Pla. needed only aeven minutes to defeat big hitting Lesley Hunt of Australia, 84,M, li-9, while the fifth-seeded Borg, 19, needed a little longer to turn back Rosa Case of Australia, 30, 0*1, 8-6, 7*5 after starting the day behind 1*4 in the fourth set. Once again steady rain played havoc with the schedule, yet 23,500 spectators were on hand in the hope of seeing some play. Evert got her match over before rain caused the first lengthy halt. Borg was able to complete three games before being forced to seek the shelter of the locker room and he had Just 10 minutes In whlcM^ KR*n BIRCH /QOTT WIL/DO Jm WP^R/TOf) ld/CHIL£/^BftUC6 D6VUbm PraduwdtyDPMOrTKRAICN DwrttdbvJflCHOAVTOn AfMnctytyfAflrKI/ fOflO COPPOLA a ^onthcno *bvMmfll236WD ftaxktoPfoduorHfflH mOOTUCfln, plete the job on the resumption of play before rain again sent the players and spectators scurrying for shelter. Evert showed no signs of nerves when play resumed under heavy, leaden skies and she quickly reeled off the two games necessary to pass Into the third round and register her fourth victory over the Australian. "It's the closest match I've ever played," Chris said with a big grin. "But it certainly was not my best tennis." The 2 hour 47 minute match, which took two days to complete, was hailed In the English press as one ofthe greatest women's duels seen on the famed center court, For tension and drama it could not be bet' tered. Chris watched four or five sets on late television Wednesday night to see where she had gone wrong "and then I decided I had to attack Lesley's second service." This she did and her victory came as a matter of course. Hunt, who had hit with power and precision on Wednesday, Thursday looked like a nervous beginner, although she confessed she had "slept well and not worried" after dining with friends. Evert said, "it was funny having to put all one's concentration into a couple of games. I've never had that experience before. 1 though about the possibility of losing but decided not to dwell on It." Chris practiced with her fiancee, Jimmy Connors, the third men's seed, on the Indoor courts of Queen's Club, before coming to Wimbledon, but her heart sank when she saw the state of the grounds; "I thought to myself, 'oh, no. Don't tell me we'll have to take a break every three points.' " Unlike Borg, who said he was tired after playing the European clay court events, Evert said she felt perfectly fit. "If I lose here, I can't say I was tired. I feel tine, especially now that the first match Is out of the way." ,, ' '•" ' Borg, who received a private lecture from the tournament referee,; Mike Gibson, for his bad court marines Wednesday night—he slammedacoupleof balls out of' play when the umpire failed to respond to his call for a suspension of play because of poor light—had to be escorted to the No. 2 court by two uniformed policemen and six stewards. It was the first time In memory of many members such a thing had happened, but such is the Swede's popularity with the teenage girls, it was necessary tor his own safety. 1 H', I Al.'i .1 M >\V.M Ni.l K' UV'\ V \ i AC f'l R S flonda theatre 1141 W 1'ilH SIRMI..
