Ceasing of Wimbledon downpour allows wins for Connors, Agassi
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Andre Agassi and Jimmy Connors played between the raindrops at Wimbledon today and won.
Agassi overcame a series of rain delays and a lack of grass-court experience to defeat Gram Connell 4-6, 6-1, 6-7, 7-5,6-3 for his first victory at Wimbledon.
Connors, a two time champion, came through with a. 6-2, 6-0, 7-5 victory over Veli Paloheimo in a match they were to have played last Monday.
Agassi, whose only previous, visit had ended in a first-round loss in 1987, seemed to gam confidence during the match that began Thursday ani was interrupted twice today by showers.
The fifth seed ventured farther and farther from his usual perch on the baseline as die match progressed, even trying some setve-and-volley play in the final set of the.
“It feels like a crapshoot out there. You just throw the dice and hope they roll your way,** said Agassi, who played in atvail-white outfit. “Wimbledon is a shot-making tournament, you see shots here you don’t see anywhere else.
“I had a great time. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed playing as much as I have the last couple of days.”
Connors was happy just to be splaying.
"It’s been a rough four days. Just to get out of the locker room is a thrill,’’he said.
Fourth-seeded Jim Courier, the French Open winner and a natural baseliner, served and volleyed his way to a 64,6-2,7-6 victory over Rodolphe Gilbert.
Tenth seed Goran Ivanisevic blasted 25 aces as he defeated local favorite Andrew Castle, and three seeded women — Amy Frazier, Katerina Maleeva and Jana Novotna — also advanced.
Ivanisevic, who lost in a semifinal thriller to Boris Becker last year at Wimbledon, completed a 7-6, 7-6,6-2 victory over the London resident in a match that started Tuesday.
Sixth seed Novotna defeated Nicole Pratt 6-3, 6-0, and eighth seed Maleeva won 7-5, 6-3 over Julie Salmon. Frazier, an American seeded 14th, won 7-6,64 over Karin Kschwendt.
On Thursday, Andre Agassi was a ghostly vision at his long-overdue Wimbledon coming-out party, wearing white denim shorts over white biking shorts, a white shirt and a white headband.
The fluorescent lime shirt was gone. The neon pink shorts were left at home. A dangling gold earring was the only hint of his unique sartorial style.
The player whose flashy war
drobe has infuriated the tennis establishment looked like Frosty the Snowman as he stepped on the grass courts Thursday for the first time since 1987.
And he played Uke Frosty for a half-hour against Grant Connell, serving poorly and moving,as if his feet were stuck in slush as he lost the first set 64 to the Canadian.
Agassi rallied to win the second set 6-1 and was tied 1-1 in the third before getting washed off court by a thunderstorm as Wimbledon waded through its fourth straight wet day.
The rain that has tormented Wimbledon since Monday delayed the fifth seed’s appearance at a tournament that < insists on predominantly-white attire. Fashion buffs and teen-aged groupies had eagerly awaited the debut of Agassi’s summer line.
Ian Hamilton, director of tennis marketing for the clothing company that makes the outfits, said Agassi chose the\ all-white look because “he didn’t want to come here and start off on the wrong foot.’*
The backlog of unplayethmatch-es was causing the All England Club to consider playing this Sunday, a huge break with tradition. The first Sunday has always been a rest day since the tournament began in 1877. •
