Vilas Canadian singles king TORONTO (CP) Guillermo Vilas parents always wanted their son to become a lawyer but the scales of justice have been tipped in favor of tennis And on Sunday Manuel Orantes was nolo contendre for the 22-year-old Argentine who won 000 and the Canadian Open singles crown with a 6-4 62 6-3 triumph that padded his lead over the Spaniard in international grand pnx point standings It was Vilas' strong service game and forehands laced with topspin that killed Orantes who earned for his second consecutive loss in straight sets in the Canadian Open final Vilas who was deadly on his placements utilized his speed to cut down Orantes' openings and force the Spaniard into er- rors I made him run and that made it easy for said Vilas I moved him around Vilas is currently riding a wave of tournament victories, having added the Canadian to the Dutch Swiss Washington and Louisville titles He has won 30 of his last 32 matches Orantes felt the match was decided in the first set where he failed to make use of three break points He did everything well He was hitting passing shots all over the court Vilas advanced to the final by employing similar shots against defending champion Tom Okker with a 7-5, 6-2 win to celebrate his 22nd birthday Saturday Orantes sidelined Juan Gis- bert his Davis Cup team- mate for many years 6-4, 6-4 in a match that was tailor- made for him The smiling Spaniard said his knowledge of Gisbert's game was a big factor and I am more steadier than he is While fiancee Jimmy Connors and Hie Nastase of Romania were losing their doubles semifinal to Jurgen Fassbender and Hans Pohman of West Germany Chnssie Evert was cleaning up on Julie Heldman in the women's singles final 6-0 6-3 Miss Evert s consistency was simply too much for Miss Heldman 28 who won the title in 1965 with a victory over Canada s Faye Urban Miss Heldman, who won 600 compared to for Miss Evert, gained some revenge Sunday when she and Gail Chanfreau of France beat the Everts 6-3 6-4 to take the doubles title which was worth 000 to the winning team The singles finalists came back to defeat Fassbender and Pohman 6-1 2-6, 6-2 to take the men s doubles crown, worth 000 to the winning tandem and 500 to the losers The tournament, sponsored by Rothmans of Pall Mall Canada Ltd drew 32 455 fans over seven 018 more than last year Sansei beaten MINNEDOSA Man (CP) Undefeated Saskatchewan defeated British Columbia 6-3 Sunday to win the western Canada bantam baseball championship, sparked by the two-hit pitching of Nolan Thompson Thompson who also hit two singles in the game had a no- hitter going until the bottom of the last inning m the seven- inning game when a B C ral- ly netted three runs Dirk Graham hit a solo home run for Saskatchewan, who now represent the west in the Canadian championships at Coaticook Que during the labor day weekend Earlier B C pitcher Brian Bafaro pitched a no-hitter against Lethbridge Sansei as they eliminated
