NEW YORK (AP) - Ivan
Lendl, rolling along at the top of
his game, easily crushed fellow
Czechoslovakian Miloslav Mecir
6-4, 6-2, 6-0 yesterday to capture
hi$ second consecutive U.S. Open
men's singles title.
"'It felt so great, I wanted to do it
again," Lendl said of his repeat
performance on the hard courts of
th$ National Tennis Center. "It
probably feels better this time."
'THE MATCH was a chess
game between two Czechoslovak
masters as much as it was a
btennis match, they probed and
teeed each other from the
baseline, changing spins and
pace, looking for any kind of
opening.
'At times it was a long-range
artllery battle, with both right-
handed firing from the baseline.
Thin one or the other would sneak
to the net for a volley. If it wasn't
a ynner, they would retreat to the
of the baseline, once again
reay to wage long-distance war.
And when it was over, Mecir
had learned what many before
hir had discovered: Lendl is the
bedt player in the world.
LENDL TRIED to assert his
dominance right at the
beginning, breaking Mecir to
begin the set. But the bearded
R Czech with the lazy eyes and lazy-
looking strokes, broke right back.
He then staved off a break point to
hold in the third game.
The preliminaries were out of
the way.
Lendl held at 30. Mecir held at
15. Lendl held at love, including
his first two aces of the match.
Then Lendl broke and went into
high gear.
'HE BEGAN the eighth game
with his third ace, then added his
fourth of the day as he held at 15 to
move out to a 5-3 lead. Mecir
saved one set point in the 10th
game, but Lendl hauled off and
ended the opening set with his
fifth ace.
"Once I had the set,'I started
moving and playing so much
better," Lendl said.
Now, Mecir changed tactics,
preferring to engage in longer
rallies from the baseline, seeing
which player would be more
patient. It made no difference.
MECIR MADE "a couple loose
second serves, he was pressing...
he went for a few crazy shots,"
Lendl said. "That's not his
gande."
tLendl broke Mecir in the third
game after two deuces, the final
point another backhand passing
shot down the line.
Ace No. 6 was Lendl's way of
beginning the fourth game, which
he won at love.
MECIR, by now being run all
over the court by Lendl, fought off
a break point before holding to
pull 2-3. It was the last game he
would win as Lendl ripped
through the next nine games to
finish off his victory in one hour,
53 minutes.
Lendl finished with 10 aces -
the last one, appropriately, on
match point. He had no double
fanits.
;Mecir had one ace and two
double-faults. And he finished

with 42 unforced errors, 20 more
r than Lendl.
:Where the first set took 50
minutes to complete, Lendl ran
thtough the final set in just 26
minutes.

NTEW YORK (AP) = Martina
Navratilova, the level of her
game as high as her emotions,
Icaptured her third U.S. Open
women's singles title in four
years yesterday, crushing
Czechoslovakia's Helena Sukova
6-3, 6-2.
It was Navratilova's second
straight Grand Slam Crown -
she won Wimbledon in July -
and the 15th Grand Slam singles
title of her career.
"I wasn't surprised she played

over West Germany's Steffi Graf.
The world's top-ranked player
has won seven Wimbledon
crowns, two French Opens and
three Australian Opens. In
addition to winning Wimbledon
this year, she was in the final of
the French Open in June, losing
the title match to Lloyd.
After the match, Navratilova
consoled Sukova, the seventh
seed.
"I know she didn't play that
well, "Navratilova said. "She
was obviously nervous playing in
the big final. I was just trying to
tell her it's OK. I'm sure she'll be
here again. I told her I hope she

wins it, but not against me."
Sukova did not seem surprised
by the loss. "I think I really need
to improve a lot to play on the top
level of the game," she said.
"I was disappointed because I
thought I had a chance," Sukova
said, thinking back to her 3-1 lead
in the first set before Navratilova
won seven straight games.

"It just slipped and I never got
back. She played too well. She
didn't want me to get back,"
Sukova said.
Navratilova later teamed up
with 'Pam Shriver to win the
women's doubles title over Hana
Mandlikova and Wendy
Turnbull, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.

The Casio fx-7000G $79.95 It's the
world's first programmable scientific
calculator with a graphic display. The
only calculator that can give form to
your figures, instantly drawing graphs
that represent your formulas and
calculations on its big LCD screen.
And with a screen measuring 16
characters by 8 lines, the fx-7000G
can display enough information for
some of your biggest ideas.
The formula or graph
can then be stored
and, when needed,

brought back for an instant replay.
The fx-7000G has 82 scientific
functions-including linear regres-
sion, standard deviation, as well as
binary, octal and hexadecimal calcu-
lations-making it useful in virtually
any scientific or technical endeavor.
In fact, without requiring com-
puter knowledge-or costing
computer dollars--the
fx-7000G, with its 422 step
-- memory, performs many
functions you'd otherwise
find only on a computer.
Nlu There's ample evi-

dence of Casio's high-tech leadership
throughout our entire line of scien-
tific calculators. Our smaller-screen
fx-6000G, for example, offers many of
the features of our fx-7000G at even
a smaller price.
If you have any doubt as to who's
the leader in high-tech calculators,
simply pick up an fx-7000G and draw
your own conclusions.
Where miracles never cease
