  • Description

    THE WIMBLEDON LAWN TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIP IN LONDON. TODAY (THURSDAY) MARGARET SMITH, THE NUMBER TWO SEED FROM AUSTRALIA, WON HER WAY INTO THE WOMEN'S SINGLES FINAL FOR THE THIRD SUCCESSIVE YEAR. SHE OVERWHELMED BRITAIN'S UNSEEDED CHRISTINE TRUMAN 6-4, 6-0.

    MISS SMITH'S WIN TOOK ONLY 37 MINUTES. AFTER DROPPING THE FIRST TWO GAMES, THE BIG AUSTRALIAN GIRL SWEPT ASIDE HER EVEN BIGGER OPPONENT WITH A MASTERLY DISPLAY OF POWER TENNIS.

    MISS TRUMAN WAS COMPLETELY OUT OF TOUCH AND ALLOWED HER OPPONENT TO WIN HER WAY THROUGH TO THE FINAL WITHOUT DROPPING ONE SET. MARGARET SMITH, WINNER OF THE WIMBLEDON CROWN IN 1963, NOW MEETS MARIA BUENO, THE NUMBER ONE SEED FROM BRAZIL, ON SATURDAY IN A REPEAT OF LAST YEAR'S FINAL.
