Were at 206 the group at 208 included Tom Weiskopt whose 66 was the Best round of the Day Jerry Mcgee 71, and Forrest Fezler who had a 72 despite three double bogeys and two bogeys. A a in a anxious looking Forward to the last round. Said Burns who won the scandinavian open shortly after turning pro last year but has yet to win in the United states. A i m ready to go to the first tee right now i m confident i just Hope i can play As Well As i have and i Hope i can keep on making the putts i hate to say it Nastase vows not to return Evert crushes Goola Gong Forest Hills. N y apr Chris Evert stands alone on the Pinnacle of women s Tennis. Jimmy Connors is a the killer again. Bjorn Borg is fit and brimming with Confidence. And Hie Nastase is fed up i m never coming said Nastase the volatile romanian after being crushed saturday by Sweden s 20-year-old Borg in the men s semifinals of the open Tennis championships. A the crowds they Are awful. I cannot play my game if i come Back to Forest Hills it will be As a Spectator. Crispness was the Tenor As the impeccable miss Evert crushed her Only challenger. Australia s Brilliant evonne Goola Gong. In 55 minutes 6-3, 6-0 for her second women s singles Crown dispatch was the order As Connors and Borg strode into the men s final Connors in what might have been the Best performance of his career erased Argentina s Guillermo Vilas 6-4, 6-2, 6-1. Borg knocked out a subdued Nastase 6-3, 6-3, 6 1. The aggressive Connors and the unflappable Borg meet sunday for the $30,000 first prize in men s singles Chris collected the same size paycheck saturday. If there was any Surprise in the next to last matinee performance of these 95-year-old championships it was the submissiveness with which the normally High Strung and often explosive Nastase gave up without a struggle. A week ago he almost triggered a fan riot by cursing the Umpire brow beating linesmen and carrying on a running verbal feud with spectators saturday he was a purring Kitten not a Hackle rising on his neck As Borg chopped him to pieces with a two listed backhand that seemed guided by some missile system and a topspin forehand that sometimes bounced five feet Over Lliel a head a the crowd it is awful a the temperamental romanian said. A it s Tough to concentrate if i smile they boo me they Don t let me play my game Quot Borg himself appeared mystified that he did not run into stronger resistance from the player who is regarded by most of the touring pros As the most Brilliant Shoemaker in the game. A i cannot understand Quot the swede said As he sought some rational explanation a it was the same at Wimbledon the same mood Nastase he acted As if he did not care Quot Borg beat Nastase in straight sets in the Wimbledon final he also won the world championship of Tennis final at Dallas and the . Pro championship at Brookline Mas making him the world s no i player going into sunday s match a Nastase for some reason always plays that Way against me As if he has no heart. He does t do anything with the Ball he just pushes it Back. I could do anything i wanted with it Quot Borg said a i feel very Good very Strong i played Well but i do not understand Why Hie does not play Well against me. Maybe it is his trouble with the crowd. A i will have much More trouble with Connors when you play Jimmy you have to be fit but i am again but it was my Putter that kept me in there again. Quot the key. Of course was the 504-Vard 16th Hole. Floyd and Burns were tied when they went to the tee. When they walked off the Green Burns had a two stroke Lead he reached with two big Wood shots and two putted from about 30 feet for the godhead Birdie Floyd who had played the Par fives six under Par in the first two rounds drove into the Woods had to Chip out. Put his third in a Bunker blew it out to about 30 inches and missed the putt.
