In the boxing ring Why must there always be a Winner if the fight is even Why can to it be called a draw is it to please the gamblers a . Enholm Milpitas Calif. I Don t know where you got the idea there Are no draws declared in boxing. Some fights Are still scored even. If it happens to be a title bout however a draw enables the defending Champion to retain his Crown. Q. Who do you think was the first Black who tried to get out of the White Many a Mold of athletes do you know of any individual who has suffered racial discrimination in a doing a panel report for my sociology class on racial discrimination in athletics. A Phil Brown Walnut Creek Calif. My own Choice for the pioneering Black in this area would be Jack Johnson the heavyweight Champion of the world from 1908 to 1915. His problems for insistence on dignity in a White Many a world have been Well chronicled. As for discrimination i could Start with Jackie Robinson who opened up baseball and subsequently other sports for Blacks and had to endure Many slurs at the Start. Q.

Playing volleyball. Who Cage see Olderman on 7c Oakland Calinea a in Tennis there has been a simplistic belief that pairing the Best two players available automatically creates a championship doubles team that a not the Way it necessarily works even if Jimmy Connors and Hie Nastase did win at Forest Hills last year. Among the doubles cognoscenti the familiar names Are Wojtek Fibak and Karl Meiler Fred Mcnair in and Sherwood Stewart Frew Mcmillan and Bob Hewitt you never heard of them Fibak of Poland and Meiler of West Germany won the act doubles title Worth $20,000 apiece at Kansas City in Early May. Mcnair and Stewart Are the no. 2 ranked team in the United states although neither will make the top 50 in singles ratings. A we fit together like two pieces of a Jigsaw Puzzle explains Mcnair a Stewart has a very Strong first serve and return of serve but he s a Little slow reacting at the net my quickness at the net Volley and overhead Are my greatest strengths. I tend to be very volatile. He is even tempered a a among the top to doubles players listed in the grand prix circuit standings Only haul Ramirez of Mexico who teams with Brian Gottfried is ranked among the singles leaders too. A doubles is an entirely different game a says Roy Emerson the Veteran australian who was perhaps the most versatile doubles player in history a you Don t win by blasting the Ball ifs a game of position and finesse you done to serve As hard you Don t try for As Many outright winners and you lob a lot More. Its More interesting when played right a and More the big breakthrough for doubles As a dramatic Tennis form came in Montreal three years ago when Frew Mcmillan and Bob Hewitt won the act championship. The $40,000 first place Money was an unprecedented sum for doubles which is generally anti climactic in tournament Tennis. Although they had won at Wimbledon in 1967 and again in 72. No one figured them to be there when the big Money was on the line. As singles players they have never ranked among the top to Mcmillan is a slender studious articulate South african who always wears a White Cap when playing Hewitt is a balding blustering australian with a bombastic temper and a paunch to match he married a South african girl and moved to that country neither has Ever won a major individual Tennis title. Mcmillan has a unique two listed style grasping the Tennis Racket with both hands whether he is swinging from the right or left Side and even volleying at the net that Way. He lets his left hand slip from the grip Only on the serve and same year 1967 we won Wimbledon by beating Hie Nastase and Ion Siriac of w hat makes two players without individual greatness pair up so successfully a one has to have a love of the doubles says Mcmillan. A a As much As people Admire doubles play there still remains with some players an individualistic attitude and they done to study it As much. Hewitt and i have studied the doubles game from a players Point of View. We study opponents weaknesses and ways to exploit Mcmillan has spent the last two years As the player coach of the Golden gaters in world team Tennis concentrating his own efforts on doubles play. A we have a commodity which Many people would prefer to buy a he claims a and yet the Tennis promoters Are Selling singles. People want to buy because most identify More with doubles and enjoy a doubles match More than they do a singles match it s More applicable to their own play and also More exciting a one of the reasons Tennis does t have a very Good imbalance of interest is suggested. Also an imbalanced payoff. The doubles winners at Forest Hills will split $12,000 up from $4,500 a year ago. The singles winners both men and women will get $40,000 each wedding Bells Montreal a second baseman Pete Mackanin of the Montreal expos plans to marry Nancy Quinn after the 1976 National league season.

His rating on television is that Hii Walls Only reach is limited but he is cat Quick at the net. Hewitt is Strong with heavy strokes and a dependable return of service but one of the slowest men in big league Tennis together they have achieved startling chemistry As a doubles team a we were asked to team together by our National says Mcmillan a and we won 44 straight matches. Our first loss was in the Quarter finals of the French Amateur but in that most of the singles matches tend to be Flat. There s not quite As much sustained action. It s very spasmodic. In doubles you have far More sustained action a with four people covering he court there Aren t As Many empty spaces and the Ball is struck across the court Many More times.
