  • Description

    John Newcombe, defending champion at the Wimbledon Tennis championships, powered his way to a straight sets victory over veteran Australian Ken Rosewall in today's (Thursday's) men's singles semi-final. Rosewall, still fatigued from four-hour marathon in the previous round, showed touches of his old brilliance. But he had no real answer to Newcombe's speed and power. Newcombe's 6-1, 6-1, 6-3 victory wins him a place in Saturday's final against American Stan Smith.
