Lloyd wins

NEW YORK (AP)-Chris Evert Lloyd
wore down 18-year-old Hana Man-
dlikova with her steady baseline
strokes and captured her fifth U.S.
*Open tennis championship in an
emotion-charged 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 victory
yesterday.
The king of tennis, five-time Wim-
bledon champion Bjorn Borg of
Sweden, kept his hopes alive for his fir-
st Open crown by rallying from a two-
set deficit and winning his semifinal
match against unseeded Johan Kriek of
South Africa 4-6, 4-6, 6-1, 6-1, 6-1.
Borg, the top seed who has now won
the last 13 five-set matches he's played,
will face defending champion John
McEnroe in today's men's singles
final.
The second-seeded McEnroe gained
the final by outslugging third-seeded
Jimmy Connors 6-4, 5-7, 0-6, 6-3, 7-6 in a
brilliant exhibition of power tennis that
last 4 hours, 15 minutes, starting out
under bright sunshine and ending under
the lights.
Lloyd, who won the Open from 1975

through 1978 before being dethroned by
Tracy Austin in 1979, appeared drained
after her victory. "I'm thrilled," she
said simply, when asked her feelings
"I really wanted to win this tour-
nament.
"This has been the toughest Open of
all for me and the most emotional,"
said Lloyd, who earned a first prize of
$46,000 from the total purse of $624,082.
"For two years I kept reading about
how I was no longer No. 1. It was
discouraging. I lost a little faith in
myself."
Now that faith has been restored,
and Chris Evert Lloyd, the former
queen of tennis, is back on her throne.
The McEnroe-Connors slugfest was
a fitting conclusion to a day of emotion-
charged crowd-pleasing tennis.
"It was a helluva match," said Con-
nors. "We played some good tennis in
the daytime and the nighttime, too.."
McEnroe won despite losing 11
straight games midway through the
match and feuding throughout with

Tigers
DETROIT (AP)-Jerry Koosman
and Doug Corbett combined on a three-
hitter as the Minnesota Twins beat the
Detroit Tigers, 4-0, yesterday.
Koosman, 12-12, gave up all three
hits, walked five and struck out three
before needing ninth-inning relief from
Corbett, who gained his 16th save. The
loser was Jack Morris, 13-13.
The Twins opened the scoring in the
second on a walk to Mike Cubbage, a
groundout and Rick Sofield's single.
Detroit third baseman Tom Brookens,
who tied an American League record
with four errors, made two miscues on
Ken Landreaux' third-inning grounder
that allowed Rob Wilfong to score from
second.
The Twins got their third run in the
sixth on a suicide squeeze by John
Castino and their final run in the ninth
when Lenny Faedo scored from third on
a fielder's choice.
