  • Description

    THE WIMBLEDON LAWN TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS IN LONDON: ROY EMERSON TODAY (FRIDAY) RETAINED THE MEN'S SINGLE TITLE WITH A STRAIGHT SETS WIN OVER FELLOW-AUSTRALIAN, FRED STOLLE 6-2, 6-4, 6-4.

    THE MATCH TOOK ONLY 66 MINUTES, WITH THE 28-YEAR-OLD FORMER QUEENSLAND CATTLE RANCHER COMPLETELY OUTPLAYING STOLLE. KILLING POWER AND SMOOTH EFFICIENCY EARNED HIM THE CROWN FOR THE SECOND TIME.

    EMERSON BEGAN BRILLIANTLY, BREAKING STOLLE'S SERVICE TWICE TO CRUISE THROUGH THE FIRST SET. A SINGLE SERVICE BREAK GAVE HIM THE SECOND. THE THIRD SET RAN TO 4-ALL BEFORE EMERSON BROKE THROUGH AGAIN TO REACH MATCHPOINT. A BACKHAND PASSING VOLLEY GAVE HIM THE MATCH.

    EMERSON'S VICTORY CONFIRMED HIS POSITION AS THE WORLD'S OUTSTANDING PLAYER. FOR 26-YEAR-OLD STOLLE, IT WAS HIS THIRD SUCCESSIVE YEAR AS RUNNER-UP.

    THE TWO AUSTRALIANS, WHO SHARE A FLAT IN LONDON DURING THE WIMBLEDON FORTNIGHT, MET IN LAST YEAR'S FINAL WHEN EMERSON WON IN FOUR TOUGH SETS.
