Lendl sets McEnroe
straight: 7-6, 6-3, 6-4

'
i.
4 .

NEW YORK (AP) - Convincingly
destroying the label of loser, Ivan
Lendl thrashed top-seeded John
McEnroe 7-6, 6-3, 6-4 yesterday to cap-
ture the U.S. Open men's singles
championship.
The victory gives Czechoslovakia a
sweep of the major titles in this Grand
Slam tournament. Hana Mandlikova
winning the women's singles on
Saturday by edging Martina
Navratilova 7-6, 1-6, 7-6.
AND ANOTHER Czechoslovak
shared in the women's doubles cham-
pionship as Helena Sukova teamed'
with West Germany's Claudia Kohde
Kilsch to defeat defending champions
Navratilova and Pam Shriver.-
Navratilova later teamed up with;
Heinz Gunthardt of Switzerland to win'
the mixed doubles crown.
But yesterday belonged to Lendl,
who was in the championship match
of America's premier tennis event for,
the fourth straight year. And this:
time, he emerged a winner. Only his
second Grand Slam title.
Ranked No. 2 in the world behind,
McEnroe, Lendl was making hisj
seventh Grand Slam final appearan-
ce. Prior to Sunday, he had won onlyi
the French Open in 1984 - beating:
McEnroe.,
IT WAS A sweet victory for Lendl,
whose booming serves and powerful
groundstrokes kept McEnroe on the,
defensive. But he also bested the New
York left-hander at the net, where
McEnroe normally reigns supreme.
Seeking his fifth U.S. Open crown,
the McEnroe who was on the Stadium
court Sunday was not the same

McEnroe who put on a tennis clinic
in his quarterfinal victory over
Sweden's Joakim Nystrom. McEnroe
was tentative, often out of position
and never had his powerful serve
working.
He seemed to be a step late, his
returns of service set up easy points
for Lendl, and his volleys lacked the
crispness that usually converts them
into winners.
A LOT OF it may have been due to
Lendl's overwhelming superiority on
this day. He sent winner after winner
past the struggling McEnroe, ripping
backhands and forehands cross-court
and down the line. When both were at
the net, Lendl appeared to win most of
the points.
It was the type of victory that could
finally wipe away the years of
frustration for Lendl, the whispers
that he could win all of the small tour-
naments, but he couldn't win the big
ones.
He has done that now, and he has
'done it with panache.
LENDL, WHO lost only one set in
the tournament, became the first non-
American since 1977 to capture the
men's singles title at the U.S. Open,
the Czechoslovak double also marked
the first time since 1973 that
'foreigners have swept both singles
crowns.
"I'm very happy to win this one,"
Lendl said. "I've been trying for a
long time. I just can't describe how
happy I am to win the championship
of this country."

Cincinnati Reds' Pete Rose belts his 4,191st career hit in the fifth inning of
yesterday's game with the Chicago Cubs. Rose's two hits in the game left him
tied with Ty Cobb for the all-time hit record.

Rose
CHICAGO (AP) - Pete Rose tied.
Ty Cobb's major league record. of
4,191 hits, going 2-for-5 at the plate
yesterday as the Cincinnati Reds bat-
tled back to score a run in the ninth
and tie the score 5-5 in a game which
-:was ended because of darkness after
nine full innings.
The game had been halted by rain in
the bottom of the eighth inning for two
hours and eight minutes before play
was resumed.
. THE GAME will be replayed after
the season if the outcome can have
any bearing on the pennant race. It is
considered a completed tie game
regardless, and Rose's hits count.
Rose, who inserted himself into the
lineup after the Cubs switched to
right-handed Reggie Patterson as
their starting pitcher, lined a single to
left in the first inning to edge within
a !one of Cobb's record and then singled
to right in the fifth to tie the 57-year-
old mark.
Rose also grounded out in the third
and seventh innings. He struck out in
the ninth inning, after the Reds had
tied the score and put runners on first
and second with none out.
THE REDS player-manager had
planned to sit out the game with lefty
Steve Trout slated to start for
Chicago. But Trout injuried his
shoulder and elbow Saturday in a

Tyes
bicycle accident.
Chicago went ahead 3-0 in the first
inning off loser Jay Tibbs, 7-16. Gary
Matthews walked, Ryne Sandberg
singled and both scored on Keith
Moreland's'triple. Moreland scored
on Ron Cey's single.
Cincinnati cut the lead to 3-1 in the
third when Eddie Milner singled, stole
second and went to third on catcher
Jody Davis' throwing error. Milner
scored on a groundout by Rose.
MORELAND'S single in the third
scored Bob Dernier, who had doubled.
Moreland later came home on a single
by Leon Durham, giving the Cubs a 5-
1 advantage.
Buddy Bell trimmed the lead to 5-4
in the sixth with a three-run homer,
his third of the year, over the left-field
bleachers.
Chicago reliever Lee Smith, who
took over in the ninth, gave up a
leadoff single to Ron Oester. Pinch-
hitter Max Venable followed with a
single behind second base, putting
runners at first and second. Milner
then singled, scoring Oester with the
tying run.
Rose, who had singled twice, then
struck out against Smith, as did Dave
Parker and Nick Esasky after him.
Cincinnati's Ted Power retired the
Cubs in the ninth, then the umpires
announced the contest would be
suspended.

Ivan Lendl grimaces during play yesterday in the finals of the U.S. Open. Len
dl, the tourney's second seed, defeated top-seeded John McEnroe, 7-6, 6-3, 6-4.
