acKay, Buchholz Lose at Wimbledon

Soviet Gymnasts. Boost Olympic Sc(

W IMBLEDON, England(AP)-The
've - jarring court collapse of
ng Earl Buchholz when he was
the threshold of a notable vic-
y and the defeat of Barry Mac-
y in a welter of double faults
,de this one of America's dark-
days in the Wimbledon tennis
Young Buchhold five times had
-seeded Neale Fraser of Aus-
,lia within a single point of
feat before he fell writhing onto
grass-victim of cramps and
old ankle injury.
Ie was leading 6-4, 3-6, 6-4,
-15 when inability to stand up
de it impossible for him to
rry on and Fraser was declared
e winner by default.
Shortly afterward, MacKay, the
power-hitter formerly of the
iiversity of Michigan, who isI

seeded second, went down before
the inspired stroking of Ni Ala
Pietrangeli, the off-and-on rackRt
artist from Italy, 16-14, 6-2, 3 .6,
MacKay's blazing power was
helpless before Pietrangeli's deft
darts. The six-foot-four American
greased the skids for his down-
fall by serving double faults at
critical points of the match.
These two quarter-final set-
backs left the United States with
no men's representatives in this
oldest of tennis championships-
the first time in more than a
quarter of a century the Yanks
have been so degraded.
Buchholz's trouble stemmed
from a torn ankle ligament which
he had suffered in football five
years ago.

He said he began getting cramps
and, when he put weight on his
right ankle, the ankle turned.
MacKay served 14 doublefaults,
ten in the first set which he lost
with a doublefault at set point.
Generally he was wild, particu-
larly off his backhand, and no
match for the agile Italian.
When MacKay lost the final
point with a wild smash that went
yards wide, the crowd was still
talking about Buchholz' collapse
on the famed center court.
When Buchholz fell in the 29th
game the fashionable Wimbledcn
center court gallery-18,000 ca-
pacity-let out an audible gasp,
then rose as one to watch as
attendants rushed to his side.
Although tennis rules call ror
an automatic withdrawal under
such circumstances, a handful of
men, two in uniform, worked
feverishly over the American's
squirming form.
They taped his right ankle and
in about five minutes he was up
and trying desperately to shake
away the kinks. He waved away
the officials and refused to de-
Fraser, the U.S. titleholder,
played streakily. At times he won
furious volleying exchanges with
his youthful rival and befuddled
Buchholz with tricky drop shots
and stop volleys. But the Aussie's
big weapon -a crackling high-
bounding service-was poor. He
seldom hit with his first delivery
and he served 11 double-faults.
Buchholz reached match point
In the fourth set while leading 5-4,
twice when ahead 6-5, and twice
in the 24th game. The last time
Fraser uncorked two big services
to save the day.

Fraser served and Buchholz
dumped the ball into the net,
giving the Australian the game
and making the set score 15-15.
Buchholz hobbled to the base
line to serve. He sent over a de-
livery, then volleyed wide, losing
the point. He served again - a
fault-and that was all.
In the day's other major singles
matches, all behind schedule, Roy


Emerson of Australia defeated
Mario Llamas of Mexico 2-6, 6-0,
6-2, 9-7, and fourth-seeded Luis
Ayala of Chile rallied to beat
Jan-Erik Lundquist of Sweden
9-11, 0-6, 6-1, 10-8, 6-4. Both went
into the quarter-finals. I
Christine Truman of Britain en-
tered the women's quarter-finals

slovakia 7-5, 6-3.

MOSCOW (P) - Some more So-

tain to be back this year snagging

so well in the final totals. This
time it's gymnastics.
Minor sport or not, the figures

just finished in Leningrad proved
that three 1956 champs, 'at least,
will be back in Rome. These are

event; Larisa Latynina of the
Ukraine who took three gold
medals at Melbourne; and Albert

As usual, it looks as if the
Russians have a strong reserve.
The final selections won't be
made until a little nearer Olympic
time but chief coach Nikolai Popov
says Shakhlin, Azaryan, Yuri Ti-
tov and Valery Kerdemelidi are
definitely choices.
Eight Man Contest
There will be six men on the
team. That leaves eight chaps
fighting it out for the remaining
two places. Popov indicated he
would take the 12 and make theni
all compete again before final
selection is made.
The 28-year-old Shakhlin has
ruled the roost here for three
years since Chukarin retired. He
has figured himself, Titov and
Azaryan as certainly in. He also

Such was the philosophical at-

Thomas of high jump fame as he
awaited-as a spectator-the final
events of the National AAU Track
and Field Championships.
The 19-year-old sophomore,
through with competition here,
electrified fans when he leaped
7 feet 2 inches. It was the highest
ever in an outdoor meet.
Thomas' performance was the
outstanding feat of a program
that dragged on for more than six

mark of 7-134 set last month.
"I just had to make it," said
