  • Description

    THE WIMBLEDON LAWN TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS IN LONDON: TODAY (THURSDAY) MARIA BUENO, THE TOP SEED FROM BRAZIL, MOVED INTO THE WOMEN'S SINGLES FINAL. SHE BEAT AMERICA'S BILLIE JEAN MOFFIT 6-4, 5-7, 6-3.

    THE MATCH ENTERTAINED THE CENTRE COURT CROWD FOR 82 MINUTES, BUT FAILED TO LIVE UP TO THE FORM OF THE QUARTER-FINALS. BOTH PLAYERS MADE MANY MISTAKES.

    THE 25-YEAR-OLD BRAZILIAN GIRL, THREE TIMES WINNER OF THE WIMBLEDON TITLE, MADE THE MOST MISS MOFFIT'S MISTAKES TO TAKE THE FIRST SET.

    BUT THE CALIFORNIAN GIRL, WHO IS RANKED NUMBER TWO IN THE UNITED STATES, CAME BACK IN A TIGHT SECOND SET. A MISSED SMASH BY MISS BUENO LEVELLED THE MATCH AT ONE SET EACH.

    IN THE DECIDING SET, THE BRAZILIAN TENNIS QUEEN RACED TO A 5-3 LEAD, AND THEN BROKE MISS MOFFIT'S SERVICE AGAIN TO TAKE THE MATCH. SHE NOW MEETS MARGARET SMITH, THE NUMBER TWO SEED FROM AUSTRALIA, IN A REPEAT OF LAST YEAR'S FINAL WHICH MISS BUENO WON.
