Lendl loss makes him 0-Wimbledon in career
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WIMBLEDON, England — They both exited as second-round losers. There the similarities ended.
Ivan Lendl slipped away from the Wimbledon grands without meeting the press, his dogged quest for a title here once again ending in failure, and perhaps ending for good.
Britain's Chris Bailey, with a lifetime record of 14-29 and a No. 263 wold tanking, walked off Centre Court lo a tumultuous ovation Thursday after playing the match of his life.
He had just battled fifth-seeded Goran Ivanisevic through five sets of the most thrilling tennis so far in the tournament The Croatian resorted lo a daring second-serve ace to save a match point before prevailing 5-7,7-6 (7-3), 6-7 (7-3), 6-4,9-7.
“What can you say, apart from, Too good,”’ Bailey said afterward. T gave it everything I had and more, md in the end it wasn't good enough.”
Lendl, 33, made his earliest exit from Wimbledon since a first-round Iou in 1981. He didn’t stay around lo answer the inevitable questions about whether this would be his last try at the
only Grand Slam tournament he’s never won.
But Amaut Boetsch, the 24-year-old Frenchman who beat him 4-6,7-5, 6-3,6-4, was willing lo answer when asked if Lendl still had a shot at a Wimbledon title.
"The way he played, I don’t think so,” Bodach
"Tm a bit sad. I like to watch all the players like Becker, like Lendl.... I don't want them lo leave.”
Did he sense the poignancy white on .court?
“No, I didn't have time to think about that,” Boetsch said.
In addition to Lendl, lOth-secdcd Andrei Medvedev was ousted Thursday. The top IO women's seeds have reached the third round, and the top axmen.
The two No. I seeds, Pete Sampras and Steffi Graf, appeared to have easy tasks today. Sampras was paired with Byron Black of Zimbabwe, ranked 108th in the world, and Graf faced Helen Kelesi of Canada, naked 87th.
Ivanisevic had a rest day Friday. He will need it after two straight five-set matches.

AUSTIN — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones predicts quarterback Troy Aikman and running back Emmitt Smith will be playing in the team's season opener.
Ackman was rprrared on last week for a herniated disk, while contract talks with Smith are ongoing.
Smith, the Cowboys' leading rusher, will be signed and "playing in the first games we play,” Jones said Thursday in a speech before about 350 people at a luncheon of the Greater Austin Sports Foundation.
“I think that you’ll see Emmitt in for the first ball game,” he said.
Jones said it was important for the Super Bowl champion Cowboys to maintain continuity, and avoid disputes that often befall dubs that have won titles. "We don’t have any of that,” he said
He said be was also confident Aikman would be in the lineup for the
Cowboys’ opener Sept. 6 against the Washington Redskins.
Aikman’s surgeon, Dr. Robert Watkins, has said that it will take the Super Bowl MVP about 12 weeks to recover. That would force Aikman to miss all of training camp and two regular-season games.
Aikman was expected to return to Dallas for a few days of rest before beginning rehabilitation in California on July 5. He plans to join the team shortly after the start of training camp and continue his rehabilitation.
The team starts its pre-season camp next month in Austin. Because of Aikman’s iryury, Jones said quarterback Hugh Millen, who played last season for the New England Patriots, and other prospects would probably get more playing time in camp.
Jones said the Cowboys have planned for usuries. "When one goes down, it cannot keep us from the Super Bowl,” he said
