Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, July JWI THE IETHSRIDOE HMAID 7 Trevino emerges Canadian Opn spoils It just wasn't to be for Art Wall Two groups can't agree Break coming in tennis LONDON (CP) John New- combe of Australia won his third Wimbledon men's singles title Saturday but his future in the All-England Lawn Tennis championship-along with that of every other professional play- in doubt. Newcombe outgunned San Smith of Pasadena, Calif., in the final to take his second title in a row. But a dispute between the In- ternational Lawn Tennis Feder- ation and the Dallas-based World Championship Tennis group has cast a question mark over the future of open tourna- ments. This could mean that Newcombe and other members of the WCT, such as former champion Rod Laver and Ken Rosewall, would not be able to play at Wimbledon and other tournaments on the world cir- cuit. Yet even In defeat the Califor- nian was magnificent. The huge centre court crowd gave him what long-time observers called the biggest ovation ever ac- corded a Wimbledon loser when he went forward for his runner- up prize. The second-seeded Newcombe collected first-place At issue is the proposal by the 1LTF that only players affili- ated with their national organi- zation be permitted to play in tournaments recognized by the federation. The recommendation comes up before the ILTF annual meeting this week in Stresa, Italy. Newcombe, the winner of the last all-amateur Wimbledon tournament in 1957, survived a tense battle of serve, volley and stamina against Smith to retain his championship. Newcombe took the finals 6-3, 6-7, 2-6, 6-4, 64. In the fourth game of the final set, Smith served two double- faults and hit a volley into the net, losing his service at love in the' only service break of the set. Newcombe, rejuvenated after E shaky middle patch, held on to the advantage to serve out the match. McAdam sinks Sons Roger McAdam tallied his third marker of the game dur ing the last minute of play am gave the Taber Ebony Hawks a slim 7-6 victory over the Leth bridge Native Sons in Alberta Junior Lacrosse League action Saturday night. Meanwhile the Lethbridg Juvenile Lancers bombed th Calgary Braves 16-8 and 12-4 in Alberta Juvenile Leagu play Sunday afternoon. The Native Sons outshot th Hawks from Taber by 25, bv had too much trouble aroun the nets to take advantage o then- opportunities. Along with McAdam's three goals Dave Smith, Ron Lowe oney. Fourth-seeded Smith, an army private on leave, picked p which will go to the S. Davis Cup fund. After breaking through mith's service in the fifth set or a 3-1 lead, it was up to New- ombe to hold service. Smith ras within a point of taking the ollowing game after some reat returns. But Newcombe, isine once more to the occa- ion, poured in a fine service or the save. Four points later he had the 'ame. Newcombe said things looked bad for him as the third set began. "I'd say Stan felt like a winner and I had a strong feei- ng of being a loser. It was a matter of getting back into the match because I was out of it. Smith said his own main prob- lem was concentration, made tougher by Newcombe's strong play. FELL PRESSURE It's hard to concentrate be- cause the other player's putting pressure on he said. It s a matter fighting the other player's good play and constant harassment. If you make a cou- ple of errors you're just out of the match, and that's what hap- pened." Women's singles champion Evonne Goolagong, who beat MONTREAL (CP) Lee Trevino flew to Britain Sunday niKht in search of his third con- secutive national golf title after winning the Canadian Open with a 10-foot putt Sunday in a sudden-death playoff Against Art Wall Jr. "Tell 'em Super Mex is on his way" Trevino told reporters after adding the Canadian title to the U.S. open championship he won less than two weeks be- colorful pro from El Paso, Tex., fired his second straight 67, five under par at the Richelieu Valley course, to catch Wall and force a playoff. Both men finished with four- round totals of 275, 13 under PWall, from Honesdale, Pa., led the tournament after three rounds with a 206, 10 under, while Trevino had a 208 score after 54 holes. The win was worth and the Peter Jackson Trophy to Trevino. Wall won with his second-place finish. STARTS CHARGE EARLY The stocky 31-year-old Trev- ino, sporting a bright pink shirt and brown slacks, started his charge early with an eagle on the par-four. 400-yard first hole. "I hit a driver 105 yards from the pin then used a sand wedge and the ball took three hops into the he explained. A one-over-par five on the eighth hole was Trevino's only unsatisfactory score as he holed birdie putts on the third, 10th, 12th and 16th holes to catch Wall who fired a 69 Sunday. Phil Rodgers of La JoHa, Calif., shot a 69 to finish third and win while R. H. Sikes of Springdale, Ark., with a round of 68 for a 283 total fin- ished two strokes behind Rogr and Canadian open titles in the same season since Tommy Ar- mour won both events in 1927. He would not comment on his chances in the British Open next weekend. "I'm going over to give 'em hell, that's all I can say. Tell 'em Super Mex is on his way." One of golf's biggest names, Arnold Palmer, decided after a discouraging 287 in the Cana- dian Open to skip the British event.

Trevino won with a birdie on the firsr playoff hole. Ken Gergus and Ron Chmie ewski added singles. For the Native Sons Wayn Bowes matched McAdam three goal output while Ken Hammersted chipped in with two and Arnot Thomson one. The Lancers proved to be too much for tho visiting Braves from Calgary Sunday. The small crowd on hand at the Adams Ice Centre were treated with a rough and fast brand of lacrosse leaving no time for boredom. Ken Boychuk was brilliant in the two games notching a two- game total of nine goals while Dwayne Kirchner came up with Norm Hall added three goals in the Lancer's scoring spree. The Liancer's netminder Valdis Zajaucaukas was also nothing short of being oustand- ing as he played tremendous defensive games and chalket up five assists offensively. Next action in the Alberta Junior League will be staged at the Adams Ice Centre Tues day at p.m. when the Sons take on the league leading Cal gary Trojans. Matzdorf sets world record BERKELEY, Calif.

He was undecided as to whether to compete but when "the sheriff hea'-d that Montreal is "like gay Paree" she insisted that he take coin Wall and Trevino had opportunities to map up the victory on the 18th hole. They hit almost identical ap- proach shots on the 445-yard hole but neither was unable to hole birdie putts of about six feet. WALL BOTHERED? The winner said later he thought the 47-year-old xWall might have been upset by a dis- turbance around the green be- fore his putt. Tournament officials at first ordered women scorekeepers to crouch on the edge of the green to prevent a rush by fans after what could have been the final shot of the event. When the scorekeepers moved into position they blocked the view of many of the spectators who angrily shouted for the women to move. The disturb- ance lasted only a few minutes before the spectators got their way but Trevino said it must have bothered Wall who was trying to line up his putt. "I don't think he would say anything, Art Wall's too much of a gentleman, but he had to be bothered when those people sur- rounded the green." Wall refused to comment on the incident. "I had good chances for bird- ies mi the 17th and 18th but I didn't hit good putts. That s all I care to say." The runner-up said his ap- proach shot which skipped to the back of the green on the old style his style Ha V I liuro TIW 'I probably got a break from the gallery." "I don't have any alibis, any complaints or he said. Trevino said the win was a big step to fulfilling his ambi- tion of beating Billy Casper's season winnings record of "I have so far this season with this'win." The victory made him (he first nun to bold tba U.S. A diet of dust, beef and beans sure gave a man a leathery thirst. And the best way to quench It way-back-then was Lethbridge Old Style Pilsner.
