"In 1961," he continues, "he+

Inge - Not 34 or 32
Now 33rd among senior men,
and ninth in doubles, and a former
aills; member of the U.S. junior Davis
ness Cup team, the 19-year-old works
thel, like he's trying to prove that
sets. there's nobody living who is more
ody dedicated to tennis. "When you

cell- The one who eventually winds up

Dell goes on to assert that
among the best players, the dif-
ference between a good and a;
great player is simply a few cru-
cial points in a set. 'If you saw1
} me warming up with Roy Emer-
son, even if he is ten or 11 times
better than I am, you probably
couldn't tell the difference too+
easily.1
Every Time
"In fact, it's almost possible to
say that on a given day, any good
player can get to 3-3, in a set and
30-30 in points against anybody
else. But on just a couple of cru-
cial points, the few that deter-
mine whether there's going to be
a service break or riot, the same
players seem to win every time.
"these are the players with the
mo'st confidence, the ones who are
in the best condition, the ones
with the most experience.
"This is why the Australians do
so well. They are taken out of
teur school when they're 17 or so, made
ally, financially secure, and told to play
n his all'the time."
This is one reason why Dell sees
the having to stay over after school
him to play the Big Ten season (a re-
next suit of the trimester) as an ad-
re- vantage, even though there won't
ng a be too many fans at the matches.
"After school there aren't any

for

Tennis Heights

courses to worry about, no blue-
books, nothing except tennis."
Still another sophomore team-
mate, Gil DeBotton, concurs, say-
ing, "Some team members were
scared about taking the week of
March 13 off and going to Florida
for spring practice. And we'll nave
a big advantage over the rest of
the league, since they'll still be in
school. Of course they tried to
get even, scheduling a couple of
matches right in the middle of
final exams. I guess, now our
tests will have to be postponed."
Because Michigan is such a

heavy favorite to win its tenth
Big Ten crown in 13 years (for
example, D e B o t t o n, Michigan's
number seven man at the mo-
ment, was victorious in high
school over Northwestern's num-
ber one), Dell is taking what
might seem to be a very light at-
titude toward the Big Ten race.
Big Ten-Just Practice?
Except for the match with
Michigan State's Chuck Brainard,
a former Michigan high school
champ, Dell is using the season
to train for the NCAA champion-
ships and the summer tour, which

will culminate in the United States
Lawn Tennis Championships at
Forest Hills, N.Y., in early Sep-
tember. "Looks like I'll be late
to start school again," says Dell,
who did the same thing last year.
In the Big Ten individual titles,
Dell figures a Michigan player has
little to show for winning since'
it is so expected; the only excite-
ment comes if there is an upset.
Come on Down
Dell, who seems to do everything
for Michigan except clean the
courts, also is involved in recruit-
ing for the Wolverines. "Because
everybody knows everybody else
on the tour, unlike other sports,
we can call up our friends and get
them to come here."

Frosh Clip EMU for Two

By JON SISKIN
The Michigan freshmen dia-
mondmen swept a doubleheader
from the Eastern Michigan Huron
frosh at Ferry field yesterday af-
ternoon, 11-4 and 8-7.
Getting their first taste of inter-
collegiate competition, the Wolver-
ine frosh jumped on EMU starter
Tom Wojicki for seven tallies in
the second inning of the opening
contest. The Wolverines collected
only three hits in the frame, but
were helped along by three Huron
errors and two walks. Dave Neary,
the husky right fielder, highlighted
the inning by poling a two-run
homer.
The seven runs gave Michigan
starter Gerry Christman a com-
fortable cushion, and he proceeded
to go the route allowing only five
hits. He also helped his own cause
with two hits in three trips and
drove in a run.
In the nightcap, Michigan again
moved out to a 7-0 advantage,
with two in the third and five in
the fourth. But EMU came storm-
ing back, gaining six tallies in the
fifth on only two infield hits. The
Hurons were aided by the wild-
ness of Wolverine moundsman
Steve Evans, who walked six bat-
ters, and a Michigan error.
The Wolverines added a run in
the bottom of the sixth, and it
