Cosell covers the line
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) Left-hander Tom Gullikson of the United States upset 12th-seeded Miloslav Mecir of Czechoslovakia in five sets today in the Wimbledon tennis championships.
Gullikson, from Palm Coast, Fla, beat Mecir 4-6,6-3,6-4,6-7 (5-7), 6-3 in just under three hours on Court No. I at the All England Club.
Earlier, after a one-hour rain delay, Hana Mandlikova, the No. 3 women’s seed, swept impressively into the second round with a 6-0, 6-1 victory over fellow Czechoslovakian, Iva Budarova.
Boris Becker, the 17-year-old West German who is considered the most dangerous non-seed in the draw, returned to center court and completed his unfinished match against American Hank Pfister.
The big-serving Becker was leading two sets to one when darkness halted the match Wednesday at 2-2 in the fourth set.
It took the West German only 25 minutes to finish the job. He broke Pfister’s serve for a 4-3 lead and held on for a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 victory, winning the match with a blistering ace.
On Wednesday, three-time winner Jimmy Connors finally got to play, after a three-day rain delay. The wait didn’t both Connors, as the 32-year-old American beat Sweden’s Stefan Simonsson in straight sets.
After playing late into the night on Wednesday, Connors was off today.
Later today, Kevin Curren was due to face Larry Stefanki, followed by the first appearance of Chris Evert IJoyd, who was matched against fellow American Mary lx>u Piatek. Annabel Croft of Britain was to play next against Hu Na, the Chmese-born player who defected to the United States in 1982

I he fans, as usual, are making themselves heard in their voting for baseball’s mid-season all-star game, which this year will be on the trampoline turf in Minneapolis’ Metrodome.
As usual, big names are winning out over big years.
Here are the leaders and runners-up at each position:
American League: Catcher, Lance Parrish, Detroit, 482,033; Carlton Fisk, Chicago, 353,078. First Base, Rod Carew, California, 355,032; Eddie Murray, Baltimore, 314,988. Second Base, Lou Whitaker, Detroit, 471,345; Bobby Grich, California, 224,367. Third Base, George Brett, Kansas City, 609,955; Doug DeCinces, California, 183,6%. Shortstop, Cal Ripken, Baltimore, 631,640; Alan Trammell, Detroit, 309,895. Outfield, Dave Winfield, New York, 430,242; Reggie Jackson, California, 338,336; Jim Rice, Boston, 332,916.
Rickey Henderson, the best hitter in baseball right now, is fifth in the outfield voting, almost 60,000 votes away from the starting lineup.
National League: Catchers, Gary Carter, New York, 484,611. Terry Kennedy, San Diego, 346,982. First Base, Steve Garvey, San Diego, 614,569; Keith Hernandez, New York, 369,555. Second Base, Ryne Sandberg, Chicago, 551,732; Tonuny Herr, St. Louis, 331,265. Third Base, Graig Nettles, San Diego, 465,332; Mike Schmidt, Philadelphia, 359,160. Shortstop, Ozzie Smith, St. Louis, 555,460; Carry Templeton, San Diego, 387,269, Outfield, Dale Murphy, Atlanta, 641,874; Tony Gwynn, San Diego, 453,336; Darryl Strawberry, New York, 438,079.
Despite the weather problems, Buzzer Hadingham, chairman of the All England club, said there were no plans to change Wimbledon from a grass court event to another surface. Wimbledon wouldn’t be the same if not played on the hallowed grass, he said.
Connors did not agree.
"I don’t think that losing its surface would hurt Wimbledon at all,” he said. “It will always have the same magic no matter what surface it’s played on.”
Mats Wtlander, the No. 4 seed from Sweden, found the Wimbledon grass too tough to handle in his first-round match on Wednesday.
Wilander, who was going for the Grand Slam after winning the Australian and French championships, was no match for big-hitting Slobodan Zivojinovic of Yugoslavia and tumbled out in the first big upset of the tournament.
Zivojinovic, ranked 77th in the world, won 6-2, 5-7,7-5,6-0 in his first-ever match at Wimbledon.
Also ousted was lOth-seeded Aaron Krickstein, a baseliner like Wilan-der, who fell 6-4, 3-6, 7-6, 6-1 to fellow American Bud Schultz.
The third seed to go out was Catarina Iundqvist of Sweden in the first round of the women's singles. She lost to America’s Barbara Potter in straight sets.
Two other Swedes, both men, made it through to the second round. Anders Jarryd edged Claudio Panatta in the fifth set while Stefan Edberg crushed Peter Doohan of Australia in three straight.
Other men’s seeds to advance were Americans Johan Kriek, No. 9; Eliot Teltscher, 13th; and Tim Mayotte, plus France’s Yannick Noah, who survived a five-set battle against Brad Gilbert of the United States.

Swimming for heart
KRIEWALDT HERALD ZEI I UNL
Ben Dismore of New Braunfels does the crawl during the Swim for Heart program at the Landa Park Olympic Pool Wednesday night. Swimmers got monetary pledges for each lap
they swam in the allotted hour, and all the money went to the American Heart Association.
Rare as July blizzards are the times that I agree with Howard Cosell.
As a newsman and a commentator, I respect him. But after the 1980 National League playoffs, when he all but ignored the Astros in favor of the more glamorous Phillies, I haven’t had a lot of nice things to say about Howard.
However, when Cosell went before the President’s Commission on Organized Crime Tuesday, I had to agree with him. Cosell strongly condemned the practice of newspapers printing point spreads on college sports, especially football.
He agreed with John R. Davis, president of the NCAA, who said the promotion of gambling on college sports threatens to “destroy the integrity of major college sports programs” if left unchecked.
I’ve never thought that printing the betting lines on college games did anyone but illegal gamblers any good. And I’ve had my fill of gamblers.
College football lias enough problems without newspapers encouraging gambling on — and thereby undermining the integrity of — games. A lot of teams are getting ready to go on probation for recrating violations and other violations of NCAA rules, especially after the passage of recent get-tough legislation, so college football needs to start cleaning up its act.
And the sports media, which live off the teams in a number of cities, need to cooperate. Howard had a point, and it wasn’t under his hat for once.New feature
After a long search, the Herald Zeitung finally has an outdoors writer. So beginning today, we’re also going to have an outdoors page, featuring that column, the Texas fishing report and the local fishing report.
