  • Description

    MISS DARLENE HARD (UNITED STATES), SEEDED SECOND IN THE WIMBLEDON, U.K., TENNIS TOURNAMENT, WAS BEATEN IN THE QUARTER-FINALS OF THE WOMEN'S SINGLES JULY 3 BY MRS VERA SUKOVA (CZECHOSLOVAKIA). MISS HARD LOST BY 4-6, 3-6.

    MISS HARD'S DISAPPEARANCE FROM THE CHAMPIONSHIP TOOK EVERYONE BY SURPRISE. SHE SERVED DOUBLE FAULTS, HER VOLLEYS HIT THE NET, AND HER DRIVING WAS AWRY. SHE WON THE FIRST THREE GAMES - AND THEREAFTER NOTHING WAS SEEN OF HER NORMAL FORCEFUL AND AGGRESSIVE GAME.

    MRS SUKOVA - ALWAYS A FORMIDABLE HARD-COURT PLAYER BUT UNTIL NOW NOT MUCH OF A MATCH WINNER ON GRASS - PLAYED SOME GOOD, STEADY, COMMON SENSE TENNIS. SHE HIT SOUNDLY AND TOOK NO UNNECESSARY RISKS. EARLIER IN THE TOURNAMENT, MRS SUKOVA BEAT THE DEFENDING CHAMPION - MISS ANGELA MORTIMER (BRITAIN).
