By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Eric Friedler, an All-
American from the University of Mich-
igan, won the Columbia International 21-
and-under Tennis Championship yester-
day with a 3-6, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, 61 victory
over Hank Pfister of San Jose, Calif.
Friedler, trailing by two sets, appear-
ed to be outclassed by the All-American
from San Jose State but took control in
the third set of the match which lasted
3Y2 hours.
Friedler jumped to a 5-2 lead in the
third set but needed a service break
in the 10th game after Pfister had
closed to 5-4. Friedler also came up
with a crucial service break in the
final game of the fourth set to tie the
match.
Pfister, competing for the first year on
clay, often was his own worst enemy,
letting his temper break his concentra-
tion. Twice, after bad shots, he tossed

r grabs
his racket over the fence.
Friedler, of Evanston, Ill., also beat
Pfister in the North-South Tournament
in Montgomery, Ala., in June 3-6, 7-6,
7-5 after trailing 5-2 in the final set.
Meanwhile, Michigan's Fred DeJesus
defeated Chris Delaney of Potomac, Md.,
6-3, 6-2 in the first round of the Pennsyl-
vania Tennis Championships in Haver-
ford.
