Z Connors, from Belleville, 111., won the ; first set 6-2, the Romanian Nastase won - the second 4- 6 and they were level at 1-1 in I the third when they decided enough was ; enough. So they split the prize money of * $31,062. * Many of the 3,800 spectators sat under ; umbrellas, and Connors and Nastase gave "': them some hilarious entertainment. But it i was more like a knockabout comedy act - than a major tournament final and did no- Z thing to solve the problem of who might ; win Wimbledon, which starts Monday. I. Connors is the favorite for Wimbledon, t seeded No. 2 behind Arthur Ashe, the de~ fending champion. Nastase is seeded No. - 3. ; Connors had gone through this Wimble: don warmup without losing a set until Sat" urday's watery final. - It was already raining when the players ? took the court, but they agreed to try and "~ play for a few games and see how things ^ went.' Nobody took it very seriously. ; 'Do It Gracefully' I Connors slipped on the wet turf and * sprawled headlong on the court Nastase * then told him how to fall. "Do it graceful- ·; ly, like this," the Romanian said, striking - a pose like a ballerina. ;- Connors then borrowed a spectator's umbrella wid held it with his riht hand ·while senug. Connors Nastase While this fooling was going on, Nastase said to the umpire: "Play should be continuous. Tell him!" The crowd screamed with laughter. Earlier in the week, Nastase had been reprimanded for interrupting the flow of play by arguing over line calls. In what serious tennis there was, Nastase hit some cleverly angled shots that had Connors helpless in the slippery conditions, and Connors volleyed with a vengeance. Nastase broke service in the opening game of the third and the farce ended with Connors sliding a couple of yards to hit a volley and break back in the next game. Evert-Wade Postponed EASTBOURNE, England (AP) Rain washed out Saturday's $16,000 singles finals between top-seeded Chris Evert and second-seeded Virginia Wade in the Eastbourne Grass Court Tennis Championship. Miss Evert, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and the British Miss Wade will play for the top prize Sunday in this final grass tuneup for next week's Wimbledon, r Five Alvarez Youngsters Give Boost to GCSA Team By Danny Wells No one is happier than Greg Olson that the Jose Alvarez family was able to leave Cuba and eventually make its way to Charleston and its swimming pools. Olson is coach of the Greater Charleston Swimming Association team which grew by five when the Alvarez family came to town. "During my first year of coaching here, I had eight good swimmers move out of town," said Olson. "With the Alvarez family, I'm getting five moving in. So I guess It evens out. The swimming Alvarezes include Maria, 14, Jose, Jr., 13, Lisette, 11, Monica, 9, and Victor, 6. They are the children of Mr. and Mrs. Jose Alvarez of Parkwood Road. The Alvarez swimmers will be competing Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the 14th annual Coonskin Park Invitational Swim Meet. All the Alvarez children were born in the United States after their parents left Cuba in 1961. "We really didn't have much trouble leaving Cuba," said Mrs. Alvarez. "The government took our property and everything we left behind. It's much harder to leave now." The Alvarez children first started swimming in Wilmington, Del., where Jose took a job with DuPont. The family moved from Wilmington to New Jersey before coming to Charleston last fall. "All of them are exceptional swimmers." said Olson. Maria is particularly talented in the water. When she was competing in the 12-and-under division, she was ranked among the top ten swimmers in the nation in several events... "I hold a lot of state records," said Maria, "but I'm not sure how many." Maria prefers to swim longer distances. She especially likes the individual medley events. Maria practices swimming about 22 hours a week in the mornings and evenings. If it weren't for car pooling, Mrs. Alvarez probably would spend most of her day driving her children to and from different practices, since swimming isn't the only sport enjoyed in the Alvarez household. Young Jose also competes in the Senior Little League baseball program. Jose, Lis- OPEN DAILY 10-10; SUN. 1-7 ette and Monca are taking up tennis while Monica enjoys horseback riding in addition to swimming. «* * CLOSE TO 400 swimmers representing over 20 teams from seven states are expected to compete in the Coonskin Park meet. GCSA is the defending team champion. "I think we will be heavily favored to win again this year," said Olson. In addition to the Alvarez girls and boys. Olson points to the following competitors as outstanding swimmers for the GCSA team in the particular age groups: Amy Polcari, Julie Netzel, John Critchfield, Sara Shumate, Fred Werdine, Raymond Gandy, Jim Critchfield, J. C. Pettit, Terry Richardson and Bill Vanderwilt. The Coonskin Pool will be closed to the public all day Thursday and Friday and until 1 p.m. on Saturday. Ashe Top Seed WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Arthur Ashe, the defending champion, is top seed for the Wimbledon tennis championships starting Monday. But British bookies make Jimmy Connors a 13-8 favorite to win back the title he lost to Ashe last year. Wimbledon fans can be prepared for upsets. Many of the 128 players in the men's singles have had little cr no practice on grass courts since the last Wimbledon. It makes the big tournament something of a gamble. The speed of grass and the uneven bounce of the ball is likely to upset many a top player who has spent the last year on clay and wood. Forest Hills has gone over to clay courts, but Wimbledon sticks to grass, the surface on which tennis was born. Shrunk In Size The British grass-court season has shrunk in size because of the expanding circuit elsewhere, so most of the top stars came to England straight from the slow clay of the French championships in Paris or from one week of competitive play on grass at the John Player Tournament at Nottingham. One quick defeat there, and it meant they were out of competition until Wimbledon. Connors dodged Paris and played in two grass court events in England by way of preparation. He reached the final of the' Kent championships at Beckenham, losing to Roscoe Tanner, but looked better than British fans had seen to since he won Wimbledon in 1974. '· All in Most Curious Match of His Career TOKYO (AP) - Muhammad Ali, per-' haps the most exotic of the era's world boxing champions, engages in undoubtedly the most curious match of his career Saturday when he meets Japanese wrestler Antonio Inoki for what is billed as the world's martial arts title. The 33-year-old Ali says he's dead serious about the encounter, but under the solemn air one detects a certain sly amusement. In fact, the heavyweight champ should be roaring all the way to the bank. Sponsors say this extraordinary bit of show business will yield Ali a coll ?6.1 million. The lantern-jawed Inoki, a clean-cut fellow of 33 who doesn't look as if he ought to be in the ungentlemanly business of professional wrestling, is supposed to get about $4 million. What makes Inoki different from many other wrestlers is that he is an all-round athlete. He holds a black belt in karate and also knows sumo, the classical Japanese wrestling. But Inoki's bag is pro wrestling, in which he holds what is known as the National Wrestling Federation World Heavyweight Title. The match will begin at 11:30 a.m. Japan time. The' fight will be seen live late Friday night on closed-circuit television in the United States, and will be televised one or two hours later to general viewers in Japan. More than three-fourths of the 14,000 seats in the Tokyo Martial Arts Hall had been sold through the end of the week. Ticket prices range from $17 to $333, with a ringside section reserved for backers of the two fighters at $1,000 each. It is not entirely clear why the fight is called the world m a r t i a l arts championship since neither wrestling nor boxing is classified among the martial arts. The fight is scheduled for 15 three-minute rounds. The rules are a mixture of wrestling and boxing, and the bout will be graded according to points by the referee and two judges. Nearly everything goes except hitting below the belt, kneeing, butting or jabbing the eye. The match would end before the 15 rounds are up if one contestant either knocked out his opponent or pinned his shoulders to the mat for a count of three. Some karate tactics-the chop, elbow stomp and backward elbow stomp- may be used. If one fighter is thrown or knocked outside the ropes, he will have 20 seconds to get back in. Ali says he has taken some special training in "dirty tricks" from Freddie Blassie, a wrestler, and Jun Rhee, a Korean karate-style expert.
