  • Description

    MRS. ANN JONES (BRITAIN) WAS ONE OF THE FOUR WINNERS TODAY (TUESDAY) IN THE QUARTER-FINALS OF THE WIMBLEDON TENNIS WOMEN'S SINGLES. MRS. JONES, A SEEDED PLAYER, TURNED BACK THE CHALLENGE OF NANCY RICHEY (USA) TO WIN 4-6, 6-1, 6-1.

    MRS. JONES PLAYED WITH LEFT-HANDED AGGRESSION. SHE APPEARED TO HURT HER ANKLE WHEN SHE FELL HEAVILY CHASING A BALL ON MATCH-POINT. THE BALL WENT OUT, LEAVING MRS. JONES A WINNER, BUT THE BRITISH GIRL LAY ON THE GROUND GRIMACING IN PAIN FOR A FEW SECONDS BEFORE LIMPING OFF TO THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE. MRS. JONE'S OPPONENT IN THE SEMI-FINALS, TO BE PLAYED THURSDAY, WILL BE MARIA BUEONO OF BRAZIL.
