Friday, July 2, 1971 THE MICHIGAN DAIL'
Smith meets Newconbe
in Wimbledon finals

WIMBLEDON (A) - S t a n
Smith of Pasadena, Calif., and
s defending champion John New-
combe of Australia powered
their way past half-fit oppon-
ents yesterday to gain the men's
singles finals of the All-Eng-
land Lawn Tennis Champion-
ships.
Saturday's final will be the
first U.S.-Australian confront-
ation since Chuch McKinley de-
feated Fred Stolle eight years
ago.
Smith defeated Tom Gorman
of Seattle 6-3, 8-6, 6-3 while
Newcombe, coasted to a 6-1, 6-1,
6-3, victory over Ken Rosewall,
also of Australia and darling of
' the center court crowd, in the
semi-finals.
Gorman was suffering from a
strained back and Rosewall ob-
viously was tired after a five-
set quarter-final thriller Tues-
day when he beat Cliff Richey
of Sarasota, Fla.
" The women's final today will
be the first All-Australian wo-
men's final ever seen here, and
it marks the end - at least
temporarily - of a five-year
center court domination by Bil-
lie Jean King, the bespeckled

little Californian from Long
Beach.
Instead, defending champion
Margaret Court will meet Evon-
ne Goolagong, at 19 -.the most
exciting young prospect t h e
girls' bracket has seen since the
former Margaret Smith and
Billie Jean Moffitt blazed on
the scene in the early 60's.
Billie Jean, three times a
winner, three times a runner-
up, was knocked out of con-
tention this year by Goolagong
in Wednesday's semifinals.
Of the winners, Newcombe
looked the most impressive as
he ran little Rosewall into the
ground. Smith's service - al-
ways his main weapon - was
far too strong for Gorman.
Gorman, 25, imprinted an in-
delible mark on this year's Wim-
bledon by ousting Australia's
Rod Laver in the fourth round,
but he's been plagued by an
old back injury for most of the
tournament.
"I haven't come all this way
to pull out now," he said as he
walked out with Smith onto the
packed center court to start
the day's play. But his injury
slowed him down, especially on

Davis Cup keeps pro ban,
scrap challenge round

O WIMBLEDON, England, (/P) -
Representatives of The Davis
Cup nations decided unanimously
yesterday to abolish the Chal-
lenge Round in the big interna-

It means that beginning 1972

from the first round instead of
playing just one match again the
winner of the inter-zone finals.

to consider the future pattern of
the Davis Cup, earlier this year
had recommended that the
Challenge Round be scrapped.
The annual meeting yesterday
simply approved the idea.
The United States, last year's
winner, is due to defend the tro-
phy against the winner of the in-
ter-zone finals at Charlotte,
N.C., next October. That will be
the last Challenge Round-a tra-
dition since the Davis Cup was
inaugurated in 1900.
The meeting, again following
the advice of the steering com-
mittee, also slammed the door
tight on contract professionals
olaying in the Davis Cup.
The tournament still will be
confined to players who are un-
der the authority of national as-
sociations, though former pros
are allowed to play.

MSU prof
leader for
Big Ten job
DETROIT (A) - The D e -
troit News said yesterday that
Professor John A. Fuzak of
Michigan State University is the
leading candidate for the post
of Big Ten commissioner which
it said will be filled at a spec-
al meeting in Chicago July 7.
Fuzak, associate dean of the
College of Education at MSU,
has been the school's faculty re-
presentative on the Big T e n
for the past 12 years.
The $30,000 a year job has
been open since the May 20
death of William.R. Bill Reid,
who had been commissioner
since 1961.
Pete Waldmeir, Detroit News
sports colunmist, said Fuzak
has notified the screening com-
mittee of 10 faculty representa-
tives and 10 athletic directors
that he is willing to have his
name considered as a candi-
date for the job
Prof. Fuzak, who has been on
a leave of absence for t h r e e
months, was reported by Mich-
igan State sources today as be-
ing somewhere in northern
Michigan on vacation.
The Detroit News story said
three other candidates are be-
ing considered.
It lited them as Charles
Neinas, a University of Wi s -
consin graduate, who has been
a top assistant to Walter Byers,
executive secretary of the Na-
tional Collegiate Association;
Wayne Duke, an Iowa grad, a
commissioner of the Big Eight
conference and a former as-
sistant to Byers; and Charles
Bud Wilkinson, former Okla-
homa football coach.

CUP HOPES GONE:
Rosew allgives up

WIMBLEDON A) - K e n
Rosewall, the old maestro of
tennis, said yesterday he will
continue to try to win Wimble-
don but he's given up thoughts
of playing for Austrailia in
the Davis Cup again.
Rosewall, 36, bowed out to
26-year-old defending champ-
ion John Newcombe in t h e
semifinals of the all-England
grass courts tennis Grass Courts
Tennis Championships, yester-
day.
Almost as the match started,
the annual meeting of repre-
sentatives of Davis Cup n a -
tions decided to keep the ban
against contract professionals
playing for their countries.
Rosewall is a star of t h e
World Championship Tennis
professional group,
"I've had my go for Aus-
tralia in the Davis Cup," Rose-
wall said. "I'd rather see t h e
younger fellows play in th e
Davis Cup now.
"It's the youngsters like Phil

Dent, 'John Alexander and Al-
lan Stone I'm sorry for. I hope
the Davis Cup will be made an
open event some time so that
these boys will get their
chance."
Dent, Alexander and Stone
all are under contract to WCT,
like Rosewall.
Rosewall went out 1-6, 1-6, 3-
6 to Newcombe and admitted
afterwards he probably was
still feeling the effects of his
four-hour marathon against
U.S. Davis Cup star Cliff Rich-
ey two days earlier. Rosewall
won that match - a nerve-
tingling cliff hanger -- after
losing the first two sets.
"It probably took more out
of me than I realized," R os e-
wall said. "Not that it would
have made much difference to
the result today. Newcombe
played very well.
"At my age the great thing
at Wimbledon is to avoid long,
tiring matches like the one
against Richey.
