Smith, Goolagong post net victories

WIMBLEDON, England (A) -
Towering Stan Smith and grace-
ful Evonne Goolalong, the ad-
vance favorites, gunned t h e i r
way into the third round yester-
day, but a rain storm delayed
the debut of little Chris Evert
in the All England Tennis Cham-
Chris, the 17-year-old b a c k-
court phenom from Fort Lauder-
dale, Fla., was to have played
Valerie Ziegenfuss of San Diego
on Wimbledon's hallowed No.
1 court, but with press and TV
cameramen poised for the en-
trance, the courts were hit with
a driving rain.
Smith, the 1971 runner-up to
Australia's John Newcombe, and
Miss Goolagong,. the defending
titleholder from Australia, both
beat the downpour as did all
the seeded players and a strong
cordon of Americans, including
four other men and four women.

The 6-foot-4 Smith, an army
corporal from Pasadena, Calif..
showed more familiarity with
grass a she beat Hank Irvine of
Rhodesia 6-4, 9-8, 6-3. Irvine with
a powerful forehand, carried the
tall, blond American to a sud-
den death in the second set hotu
Smith's powerful serve and vol-
ley were too much at the end.
SMITH WAS seeded No. 1 when
the professionals of the World
Championship Tennis troupe --

of a peace agreement.
Miss Goolagong, who drew an
opening round bye as did Miss
Evert and Billie Jean King of
Long Beach, Calif.. had little
trouble beating Marilyn Pryde

played loosely, bearing down
only when pressed.
The rain interrupted an ex-
citing duel between veteran An-
dres Gimeno of Spain and dark-
horse Onny Parun of New Z,-
land. The New Zealander had
match point at 2-0 in sets. 5-4
and 40-30 on service, only to lase
the point and ultimately the neyt
two sets. The score was 3-3 in
the fifth set when the rain came.
All the seeded players who
managed to get on court before
play stopped came through with-
out trouble. Alexander Metreveli,
the eighth seed from Russia,
joined Smith in the third round
of the men's singles with a 7-9,

6-1, 6-4, 6-4 victory over France's
Patrice Dominguez.
In the women's singles, Ker-
ry Melville of Australia a n d
Nancy Gunter of San Angelo,
Tex. both won their first round
matches. Mrs. Gunter. seeded
third, beat Valerie Lancaster of
Australia 6-2, 6-1, while Miss Mel-
ville beat Vicky Berner of South
Africa 6-2, 6-2. Kerry is seeded
IT WAS- another good day for
U.S. players. Of the eight meo
who played, only three lost.
