  • Description

    MANUEL SANTANA OF SPAIN BEAT MARTY RIESSEN OF THE UNITED STATES 6-3, 6-2, 10-8, IN THE THIRD ROUND OF THE MEN'S SINGLES CHAMPIONSHIP AT WIMBLEDON TODAY (THURSDAY).

    THE FIRST TWO SETS WERE VERY ONE SIDED BUT THE THIRD SET WAS NOT DECIDED UNTIL THE EIGHTEENTH GAME. AFTER THE FIRST SET RIESSEN GAVE UP ORTHODOX PLAY AND PREFERRED TO LOB THE BALL SKYWARD IN A TACTIC AIMED AT UPSETTING SANTANA'S GAME. SANTANA HOWEVER WAS WELL ABLE TO COPE WITH THE SITUATION AND HIS PLAYING GAINED MUCH APPRECIATION FROM THE CROWD AT THE CENTRE COURT.
