    Background: DENNIS RALSTON, OF THE USA, BEAT CLIFF DRYSDALE, OF SOUTH AFRICA, IN THE SEMI-FINAL OF THE WIMBLEDON TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS TODAY (WEDNESDAY). SEEDED NUMBER SIX, THE AMERICAN TOOK THE MATCH IN FIVE SETS -- 6-8, 8-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 - OVER THE SOUTH AFRICAN WHO WAS THE NUMBER SEVEN SEED.

    RALSTON NOW GOES ON TO MEET SPAIN'S MANUEL SANTANA IN THE FINAL OF THE MEN'S SINGLES CHAMPIONSHIP ON FRIDAY (1 JULY).

    LIKE SANTANA, RALSTON GOEST INTO THE FINAL OF THE WORLD'S PREMIER TENNIS TOURNAMENT FOR THE FIRST TIME.

    DRYSDALE HELD THE EDGE AFTER THREE SETS, AIDED BY HIS UNORTHODOX TWO-HANDED BACKHAND SHOTS, BUT RALSTON GRADUALLY EXERTED THE PRESSURE WITH HIS WEIGHTIER NET ATTACK TO AVENGE HIS DEFEAT BY THE SOUTH AFRICAN IN THE QUARTER-FINALS OF THE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIPS LAST AUTUMN.

    RALSTON IS THE FIRST AMERICAN IN THE FINAL SINCE "CHUCK" McKINLEY WON IN 1963.
