BEAT TANNER, RAMIREZ AT WIMBLEDON

Borg, Nastase reach finals

By The Associated Press
WIMBLEDON, England -
Bjorn Borg of Sweden and Ilie
Nastase of Romania yesterday
gained what will be a rare all-
European men's singles final
at the Wimbledon Tennis Cham-
pionships.
Borg, 25 days past his 20th
birthday, tamed American Ros-
coe Tanner's mighty service
,nd won 6-4, 9-8, 6-4 in a hard-
hitting thriller.
Nastase, approaching 30, out-

Borg and Nastase will play
Saturday, a day after Chris
Evert of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.,
and Evonne Goolagon of Aus-
tralia each tries to win her sec-
ond Wimbledon women's sin-
gles championship.
Nastase has been in the final
once before-in 1972, when Stan
Smith beat him in a classic
five-setter. Borg is the youngest
finalist since Ken Rosewall, who
vas 19 years and 9 months when
he last to Jareslav Drobny in
1954.

both to Borg -- and only six
games went to deuce. But if
Tanner's service had reached
its peak, the match might have
ended differently.
Borg's first service break,
giving him a 4-3 lead in the
first set, came after a rally
that had the 17,000 fans gaping
in disbleief.
Tanner slammed one of his
big first services. Borg hit it
straight back at him. Tanner hit
a scorching forehand, and Borg
sent a forehand crosscourt past
him. The four strokes all hap-
pened so fast the eye could
scarcely follow the ball.
Borg touched the heights
again to win the second set
tiebreaker, 7-2, Tanner served
trailing 1-2 and lost both points
on that service - ti a sizzling
cross-court backhand and a
lob hit with uncanny accuracy

to his baseline.
Nine games of the third set
went with service. Tanner still
could not get his big serve go-
ing properly, and the nearest
he got to a break was when he
led Borg 40-15 in the seventh
game and 30-0 in the ninth.
When Tanner served at 4-5 to
save the match he got only one
first service in. Twice he made
his second serve kick shoulder-
high, and each time Borg ran
around the ball and smote his
top-spin forehands down the
lines. The final winning shot was
a backhand pass.
Nastase, whose temperament
has so often got him into trouble,
kept his composure against Ra-
mirez and played a wealth of
elegant strokes.
Nastase's flashing backhand
carried him to a service break
for a 3-1 lead in the first set,

and he broke again at 6-2. The
Romanian varied his game like
a true artis, mixing drops and
lobs with his power shots.
Ramirez, apparently troubled
by the wind, failed too often
with his first service. He lost
his 3-2 lead in the second set
after a long, cliff-hanging sixth
game in which there were eight
deuces and each player had
four advantage points.
Ramirez made a valiant ef-
fort to break through in the
ninth game. He led 40-15 against
service and then had an ad-
vantage point, but could not get
the extra point that mattered.
The Mexican played atacking
tennis to the last. He was mov-
ing aggressively to the net as
Nastase passed him with two
forehands for the final decisive
break at 7-9.
