Anyone Can Win British Tennis Match BV ROBERT JONES WIMBLEDON f/\P> - Take, an Indian, an Australian, a Briton and an all-American boy from St. Louis, shuffle well and it's anyone's guess who'll be marching off with the Wimbledon men's lennis crown on Friday. The shuffling-up is 'on Ihc All England Club's famed center court today, when Uamanathan Krishnan of India meets Aussie Rod Laver, runner-up the past two years, and Chuck McKinley. the 5-1! bundle of energy from St. Louis, meets Mike Sangsfer, the ! tough and brawny Briton. Whether he gels to Ihc final or not, Chuck has served notice that Australia's virtual stranglehold on the Davis Cup—they've won it nine times ir. the past 11 years— may be ending soon. Australia still has Nealo Fraser, Lavcr and Hoy Emerson, veterans of so many Davis Cup flashes. But Fra.ser, Ihc ouslcd champion, has hinted he may be retiring soon, and Laver 'may land in Jack Kramer's pro net if he wins this year. But if the future looks bright for the U.S. men, it has a gloomy look where the girls are concerned. For the second year in succession, no American girl has reached the semifinals here. Karen lionize, the teen-ager from Cluila Vista, Calif., was the only U.S. seed this year—and she lost to Ilene Schuurman, the unseeded, bouncy brunette from Durban, South Africa, in an upset in the quarter-finals Tuesday. That gave the girls' semifinals Hope Legion Ploys Here Tonight at 8 Hope's Junior Legion baseball I team should get a real test here | at !! o'clock tonight when they ! play the Ilayncsville, La.
