Cath upsets top-seeded Lendl
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Australian Davis Cup hero Pat Cash battled for over four hours before toppling top-seeded Ivan Lendl of Czechoslovakia today to advance to the men’s final of the $1.65 million Australian Open Tennis Championships at Kooyong.
Cash, 21, the lith seed, moved into the first Grand Slam final of his career by outdueling l^ndl 7-6 (7-1), 5-7,7-6 (7-5), 6-4 in a struggle between two of the most powerful players in the world.
Tile fiery Cash will meet defending champion Stefan Edberg of sweden, the fourth seed, in Sunday’s final.
Edberg romped to a 6-2,6-4, 7-6 (9-7) victory over unseeded Australian Wally Masur in today’s other semifinal.
The women’s final will be on Saturday, with defending champion Martina Navratilova of Fort Worth, Texas meeting Czechoslovakia’s Hana Mandlikova.
Cash, who will be playing in only the fourth Grand Prix tournament final of his career, defeated Lendl for the first time in five career meetings.
He will be aiming to become the first Australian to win the title since Mark Edmondson did it in 1976.
Cash, a former U.S. Open and Wimbledon semifinalist, faced Edberg in the opening match of the Davis Cup final against Sweden at Kooyong last month, beating the 21-year-old Swede in straight sets to spark Australia’s 3-2 victory. Edberg won their only other meeting.
Lendl had prepared on grass for three weeks prior to the Open, but Cash played him evenly and showed tremendous concentration on the key points.
Cash broke serve for a 5-3 lead in the fourth set, only to drop his own serve. But he broke Lendl again to clinch the victory after the Czech missed a couple of easy volleys. Richardton Iotas daughter, game
Baylor Coach Gene Iba said his basketball team just wouldn’t give up although it appeared several times that Arkansas had sewed up the victory.
