Borg gets death threats
NEW YORK (AP) - Bjorn Borg's
dream of winning the U.S. Open was
shattered by John McEnroe and sullied
by two death threats.
The Swede, who has captured five
Wimbledon titles and six French Open
crowns, failed for the 10th time to add
America's premier tennis event to his
list of laurels. It was the fourth time he
has gained the final, only to lose.
THE RECORD will show McEnroe
demolished Borg, 4-6, 6-2, 6-4, ,-3 Sun-
day, giving the left-hander hi§ third
consecutive national title-the first
man to do that since the legendary Bill
Tilden won six straight from 1920-25.
The record book won't mention the
two anonymous calls to the Nation Ten-
nis Center threatening Borg's life. One
came Saturday before Borg crushed
Jimmy Conners 6-2, 7-5, 6-4. Lennart
Bergelin, Borg's coach, was notified,
but Borg was not told until the match
Sunday's call was received at the
National Tennis Center switchboard
just as Borg was capturing the first set
"THE CALL CAME at ap-
proximately quarter to five," said Lt.
Robert Becker, a police officer who
was immediately notified. "It was a
male. He said he would kill Borg when
he walked on the court."
Becker said no one was informed of.
the second call until after the men's
singles final ended.
After Borg's service return sailed
long at match point, the Swede
congratulated McEnroe at the net, gave
the traditional salute to the umpire and
gathered up his rackets and jacket.
Surrounded by security personnel and
police, Borg skipped the awards
ceremony, showered and immediately
went to a waiting station wagon.
He refused to answer any questions.
Bergelin said: "Everthing is OK."
Yesterday Borg canceled severa
personal appearances he was to mak
in the New York City area. No reason
was immediately given.
Heiden wins bike race
First he conquered speed skating,
now it appears that four time Olympic
gold medalist Eric Heiden has set out
to top the cycling world as well.
Ann Arbor residents had a chance to
witness Heiden's bicycling ability when
the Wisconsin native coasted to a vic-
tory in the 35-mile Fall-Fest Criterion
race held here last Sunday.
The world-record speed skater was
one of the almost 100 participants of the
race. The event, which is held bi-
annually in September and again in
April, has the contestants ride a course
through the campus.

Davis fractures leg
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) -
Oakland safety Mike Davis sustained a
