    The black American, Arthur Ashe, fought a tough battle to defeat fellow American, Sharownd Stewart in the South African Open Tennis Championships at Johannesburg on Tuesday (November 20th).

    Ashe, playing in his first South African championship, was granted a visa to visit the Republic after first making enquiries four years ago.

    The 30-year-old fourth seed beat stewart, 6-1, 7-6, 6-4. After taking only one game in the first set, Stewart broke service in the seventh game of the second set to lead 4-3. But Ashe soon rallied and Stewart crumpled under pressure.
