oolagong grabs ladies net crown

WIMBLEDON, England (P' -
Evonne Goolagong, a sunny
tempered Australian mature be-
yond her 19 years, became the
new Winbledon champion yes-
terday with a stunning 6-4, 6-1
upset victory over defending tit-
lot Margaret Court.
The men's title will be decided
today when Stan Smith of Pasa-
dena, Calif., meets defending
champion John Newcombe of
Australia.
q In winning the women's sin-
gles title and the huge solid sil-
ver salver that goes with it,
Miss Goolagong delighted the

and confounded her coach, Vic-
Edwards.
Edwards. who took Evonne
into his own family years ago
to mold her into a champion, is
on record as saying his protege
would win Wimbledon in 1974.
Friday she showed herself a
worthy champion three years
ahead of time-and she won in
a way that suggests the title is
her for as many years as she
wants it.
To win the crown she not only
disposed of Mrs. Court, the tall,
athletic Australian, but of Billie
Jean King. the bouncy little Cal-
iforian from Long Beach.
The two virtually had domi-
nated the women's tennis scene
here for the- past eight years,
but in just two matches little
Evonne wiped them out.
She beat Billie Jean in the
semifinals 6-4, 6-4 on Wednes-
day and took just 61 minutes Fri-
day to blast her way past Mrs.
Court in the first all-Australian
women's final here.
Miss Goolagong told ne w s-
men after her victory that she

was nervous before the match
--- almost for the first time in
her care r.
"But as soo as I got out
there I forgot my er'ves and
started playing. shc said. "I
was worried when I soas lead-
ing. but more at c se when
the scor was even.
"When Margaret was srving .
and had advantage point. I felt
I could go for my shots. If it
was deuce I tended to relax and
to tell myself it didn't matter
if I lost the point because there
was another one to come."
The new champion plans to
play in a few more tournaments
including the Canadian Open
at Toronto, before going home
to Australia. But Edwards
says she won't play in the U.S.
Open at Forest Hills, N.Y., un-
til next year.
"She started on the tourna-
ment circuit early this year
and I think Forest Hills would
be a bit much for her," he
said.
