another fine forehand across the court. Ashe, however, hit his
way out of trouble.

strokes, and the crowd didn't like it.
"Get on with it, Connors," a man shouted near the end of the

David Lloyd 6-3, 6-3, 6-1.
PANATTA, the handsome Italian who won both the Italian
and French titles on clay this year, looked less comfortable on the
grass here in defeating Jorge Andrew of Venezuela 4-6, 6-4, 7-5,
