    AUSTRALIAN TENNIS PLAYER KEN ROSEWALL ADVANCED TO THE QUARTER FINALS AT THE UNITED STATES OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS ON MONDAY (2 SEPTEMBER) BY BEATING ROMANIAN ILIK, NASTASE BEFORE A CROWD OF OVER 10,000 TENNIS FANS. THE SCORE WAS 6-1, 5-7, 6-4, 6-3.

    NASTASE WAS THE SURPRISE OF THE TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS WHEN HE DEFEATED STAN SMITH, ONE OF AMERICA'S BRIGHTEST YOUNG DAVIS CUP PLAYERS.

    ROSEWALL NEXT PLAYS THE UNITED STATE'S TOP STAR, ARTHUR ASHE IN THE QUARTER FINALS. ROSEWALL HOLDS TWO VICTORIES OVER ASHE IN THEIR ONLY TWO MEETINGS THIS YEARS.

    ASHE MOVED INTO THE QUARTER FINALS BY BEATING SPAIN'S MANUEL SANTANA IN FOUR SETS. AUSTRALIA'S ROD LAVER BEAT DENNIS RALSTON IN FIVE SETS TO REACH THE QUARTER FINALS. IF ALL GOES AS EXPECTED, LAVER AND ASHE WILL MEET IN THE FINALS ON SUNDAY (7 SEPTEMBER).
