Orantes, a clay court specialist, looked booked for an early exit when he trailed two sets to love, but he pulled himself together and ran out a 2-6, 5-7, 7-5, 6-4, 8-6 winner over Roche, beaten finalist here in 1968. "Roche tired because he's Dive Flight Wins Honors Members of the Tyndall Dive Flight dominated the Fiesta of Five Flags spearflshlng Rodeo in Pensacola by capturing seven out of a possible 12 awards.

"Tennis is at the crossroads. Players must decide whether they want to follow the tournament circuit or play for one hour In league tennis. They can't do both." Roche, the player-coach of Denver In World Team Tennis, heeded 74 hours to complete his second round match against John Alexander because of rain delays. Saturday he played with zip for two sets but then played tired strokes and was unable to capitalize on a fifth game break In the fifth set. For the first time in a week the sun. shone on the All England club which was packed with 26,154 fans but, unfortunately, the tennis did not match the gay summer scene. Referee Mike Gibson played "catch up" as he tried to clear the backlog of 180 matches but this meant the fans were denied the opportunity of seeing the higher seeds in action. Gibson achieved his aim of getting down to the last 32 in both the men's and women's singles, while seventh-seeded Tom Okker of the Netherlands joined Orantes in the round of 16 with a light-hearted 4-6,6-3,6-3, 6-3 win over Cliff Drysdale of South Africa. Three American men won their second round matches to bring to eight the number of U.S. survivors in the last 32. Nine girls made it to the third round in the women's singles. Roscoe Tanner of Lookout Mountain, Term., qualified to meet eighth-seeded Arthur Ashe with an 84, 6-4, 8-6 win over Germany's Karl Meiler; Dave Stockton of Port Washington, N.Y., turned back Briton Gerald Battrick, 34,6-3,6-4,46, 6-4, while Jeff Borowiak of Berkeley, Calif., beat Neale Fraser 8-9, 6-3, 8-6, 1-0, the Australian winner of the title in 1960 and now his country's Davis Cup captain, retiring with a muscle pull in his right thigh which hurt when he served. Six U.S. girls won to join the big three of Billie Jean King, Chris Evert and Rosie Casals in the third round. Betsy Nagelsen of St. Petersburg, Fla., beat Gail Chanfreau of France, 7-5, 6-3; Patti Hogan of La Jolla, Calif., beat Brigitte Cuypers of South Africa, 6-3,60; Ann Kiyomura of San Mateo, Calif., beat Marina Kroshina of Russia, 8-6, 2-6, 6-3; Kris Kemmer of Los Angeles beat Sharon Walsh of San Rafael, Calif., 1-6, 6-2, 6-3; Mona Schallau of Iowa City did not lose a game in blanking Natalie Fuchs of France; and Tory Frejz of Los Angeles beat Wendy Turnbull of Australia, 75,6-3. Scramble Held Gary Likis, R. Wallace, R. Bratson and Tom Short won Saturday's golf scramble at Colony Club with a plus nine. Second at plus four were Hal Brown, Cal Fair, Bud Welch and Arvid Kirkland. Ed Bradley won points at plus eight. Turner copped the sportsmen's feature in his new racer last Sunday, the bounty on Nixon has been raised by track officials from $25 to $50 and the cadet race drivers say they intend to end his winning streak tonight. Nixon won last week's feature and black flag, with Kenny Boyd trailing him the feature. Wayne Money was second to Turner In the sportsmen feature last week while Donnie Hardy won the black face race. Bill Comer, J.D. Lewis, Larry Hudson and Pop Cole are other drivers who will be vying for honors tonight.
