The crowd was nervous, but Jack Nicklaus sat
calmly watching the action. The 18th hole of the
Masters? No, this was the Central Campus
Recreation Building where a record crowd watched
the Michigan women's volleyball team open its
season by beating a Georgia squad that included
Nicklaus' daughter, three games to two.
The Golden Bear said that he enjoyed "all but the
last part" of the match.
THAT'S WHEN the Wolverines pulled out the fifth
game, 15-12, to win the match. It looked like the final
game would be easy for Michigan as the spikers
pounded out a 12-3 lead. But the Bulldogs chipped
away and cut the margin to 13-11, before Michigan
senior Alison Noble served an ace to make it 14-11.
Finally, after one more Bulldog point and a few side
outs, Noble and senior Susan Rogers combined to
block the final point over the net.
"A 14-1 lead is not big enough," said coach Sandy
Vong. "You've got to play one point at a time. You
have to be very patient."
'We knew they were good.
We knew we'd have to

Michigan, which won the first game 15-10, lost the
second 15-6 and won the third game 15-12, appeared to
be bringing the match to a close in the fourth game.
The Wolverines were rolling along with momentum
and a 9-6 lead, when senior setter Jeanne Weckler
twisted her ankle. Weckler was helped from the
court, and when play resumed, Georgia proceeded to
tie the score and then take the lead at 11-10. Michigan
failed to score another point while Georgia scored the
next four, sending the match into the tension-filled
VONG SAID he knew beating the Bulldogs, who've
already defeated Notre Dame and Michigan State on
a midwest tour, wouldn't be easy. "We knew they
were good," said the tenth-year coach. "We kne
we'd have to scramble. They have more offense."
Bulldog Karen Kelley, a 5-11 junior from Livonia,
and Sue Ushela, a 5-10 junior from Indiana, led that
attack, with 18 and 11 kills, respectively.n ,
For Michigan, Sue Rogers, an Ontario native, a d
Noble led the offense. Rogers had 17 kills, Noble 16.
Vong singled out the play of sophomore Karen Ki]n-
zelman, who went in to replace the injured Weckler;
As for the future, specifically this Saturda 's
Wolverine Open, Vong said he wants to see improv 'd
offense, something that may be difficult without tie
services of Weckler, the starting setter. Vong admi
ted that may be a problem. 'But," he said, remembpr
ing the night's strong performance, "we'll do ojir
best. We're tough on that line."
And the future of Michigan football, specifically toe
Michigan-Ohio State game, according to former-
Buckeye Nicklaus? "I don't pay much attention toit

NEW YORK (AP) - Second-seeded
Ivan Lendl of Czechoslovakia
methodically and efficiently eliminated
Sweden's Mats Wilander 6-4, 6-4, 7-6
yesterday to advance into the
semifinals of the U.S. Open Tennis
Lendl, who lost in the final to Jimmy
Connors last year, will face the winner
of last night's match between fourth-
seeded Yannick Noah of France and
ninth seed Jimmy Arias in a semifinal
tomorrow. The other semifinal will pit
defending champion Connors, seeded
third this. year, against 6th seed Bill
"I DID WHAT I could," Wilander
said after losing to Lendl. "Lendl
played very well."
It was a huge understatement.
Lendl was awesome in totally con-
trolling the two-hour, nine-minute mat-
ch. Whenever he needed a point, he got
it. He closed out the first two sets on his
first set points, and ended the match on
his first match point.
"I THINK I was serving better than
he and I was playing more
aggressively," Lendl said. "Once you
win matches, you get more confidence.
But no matter how much confidence
you have, you still have to play well to
"I didn't want four or five sets. He
was starting to play well. I was happy I
closed it in three."
Top-seeded John McEnroe, who was
upset in the singles Monday, teamed
with Peter Fleming yesterday to win
their doubles semifinal. They defeated
Australians Pat Cash and John Fit-
zgerald 6-4,7-6,7-6, and will meet fellow
Americans Fritz Buehning and Van
Winitsky in the final today.
