"No, I won't play," said Casper,

WIMBLEDON, England-Wim-
bledon's tennis king is dead.
And Dennis Ralston, United
States No. 1 tennis star, is right
in there fighting for the vacated
Roy Emerson, the wiry Austra-
lian who has won the Wimbledon
title for two years running, was
eliminated yesterday by country-
man Owen Davidson, 6-3, 3-6,
4-6, 4-6.-
Davidson, a brawny left-hander,
thus wrecked the 29-year-old
Queenslander's hopes of becoming
the first man to win the Wimble-
don title three straight times since
England's Fred Perry accomplished
the feat 30 years ago. Emerson
had won in 1964 and 1965.
Costly Fall
A bad fall in the third game of
the second set unsettled the lean
champion after he had easily won
the first set.
With games 1-1 in the second,,
Emerson slipped on the slippery
turf going for a backhand, skid-
ded two yards, and thudded'
against the umpire's chair.
The packed center court was
A hushed as Emerson slowly got up
and felt his left leg. Then the
crowd cheered as the champion'
walked back to the serving line,
apparently unhurt.
Davidson Breaks Service
But the fall took all the steam
aut of Emerson. During the next
few .games he trod warily and
seemed reluctant to put his full
weight on the leg while serving.
This gave Davidson his chance
to take the lead and he got service
break to go ahead 3-2 for a lead
he never dropped in the set.
Davidson, ranked only sixth in
* Australia, never let his advantage
go after that. Although Emerson
began to regain confidence, he still
seemed hesitant to go for his
shots and his normally fast re-
flexes were slower than usual.
Australia's Chances Dim
Three players now have the

chance to break the Australian
domination of Wimbledon-Ral-
ston, Spain's Manuel Santana and
South Africa's Cliff Drysdale.
Ralston plays Drysdale or Tony
Roche, another Australian in the
semifinals. Santana has to play

quarter-finals, and the winner will

Ralston's service-a nightmare
at times last week-was in good
shape at last. He hit five aces
and 38 service winners, and at
the same time collared Hewitt's

stream of effective returns.
Ready for Big One

now," Ralston said. "This is as

In last year's tournament, Ral-
ston was eliminated by Emerson
in the semifinals.
The last American to win the
Wimbledon title was Chuck Mc-
Kinley in 1963. Otherwise, the
Australians have an unbroken run
of success since 1960.
Ralston had a rest from singles
play yesterday. The two outstand-
ing quarter-finals were scheduled
