Tilden Retains World Tennis Championship, Although Nearly Beaten by South African
In Five Sets
Title Holder Loses First Two
Frames But Plays Bril?
liantly Toward the Last
WIMBLEDON, July 2 (By The Asso?
ciated Press).?William T. Tilden, of
Philadelphia, world's lawn tennis cham?
pion, successfully defended his title in
the challenge round of the British turf
court championships here to-day, de?
feating B. I. C. Norton, the South Afri?
can star, in a five-set match. The score
was 4?6, 2?6, 6?1, 6-0, 7 5.
Tilden won the match by a superb up?
hill struggle. The contest was one of
the closest, and most sensational wit?
nessed here in many a day. Beaten in
the first two sets, he returned to form
in the third, winning this and the
fourth set by the score of 6?1, 6?0.
In the fifth and deciding set the play
was at first in Norton's favor, the
South African leading 3?2. and then
5?4. Tilden took it to deuce, however,
and then captured the set and the
match by winning the next two gamer..
Tilden by his victory retains the title
he won at Wimbledon last year, when
by playing through the tournament
and defeating Gerald Patterson, of
Australia, in the challenge round he
captured not only the British cham?
pionship, but what is generally con?
ceded to be the world's title.
Players Get Ovation
The other titular honors now held by
the Philadelphian are the American na?
tional championship and the world's
hard-court championship, which last he
won this year in the matches at St.
Both Tilden and Norton received an
ovation when they entered the courts.
The American opened with a Cood serv?
ice, but in the subsequent returns
made mistakes and lost the first game.
Then Norton double-faulted and Til
den captured two games. Norton took
the next game, the champion overhit
ting the line.
The South African magnificently re?
turned some of Tilden's "whiz-bane"
services and led at 3 to 2. Norton
playing admirably, won his own service
game, bringing the score to 4 to 2. Til
den netted chop strokes and double
taulted, thus giving Norton the lead at
5 to 2. Tilden rallied, however, and
ultimately reached 4?5, but Norton,
playing brilliantly from the back
court, again got a point when Tilden
netted a half volley. Norton then won
the_ set with a service ace.
Norton captured Tilden's first serv?
ice game in the second set with splen?
did returning off the ground, with the
champion netting or outing almost
every time. Then Tilden endeavored to
make an ace< but failed. Norton took
the second game and the third. Tilden
in the main beat himself and the score
went to 4 to 0 in Norton's favor.
Norton Again Leads
Tilden got the next service game
with two "whiz-bangs" and hard driv?
ing. The next game was taken to fif?
teen by the champion with grand driv?
ing. Norton in the seventh cross
volleyed superbly some of Tilden's
hardest drives and led at 5 to 2. Til
den continued his numerous errors
and lost the last game on Norton's
service from love forty. Here Norton
half-volleyed frbm the base line one
of Tilden's hurricane drives and took
the second set at C?2.
In the third set Tilden got the first
game on his service and then won
Norton's service. Tilden in the next
game thrice successively beat himself,
but pulled the game out with four suc?
cessive ace points. Tilden now was
beating Norton finely all around the
court, but the latter periodically
brought out fine winners.
Norton next captured his opponent's
service game, but Tilden realized with
meant it to be a.
over "whiz-bang" services and steadied
himself beautifully. He played hurri?
cane shots all around the court and
captured a love set. In this set Nor?
ton never once appeared to be trying.
He hit the ball in the wildest fashion,
and Tilden took the set at 6?0.
Tilden Evens Score
Norton captured the first game in the
fifth set, but Tilden evened the score
and then took the lead at 2?1. ?Nor?
ton, however, drew level at two-all and
forged ahead at 3-2, with Tilden one
more beating himself on easy shots
Norton got another point and led at
4_2 but ultimately, with the South
African making most unaccountable
mistakes, Tilden drew level at 4?4.
Norton then went ahead to 5?4, with
Norton twice got within a stroke ot
the match, but Tilden evened it at 5?5
after several deuce calls. Tilden then
captured Norton's service game and led
at 6?5. Two fine aco points gave the
American 3G-love, one being a cannon
ball ace. Tilden went to 40?16. The
American netted the next ball, but
served a whirlwind ace for the last
point, winning the set 7-?5.
Randolph Lycett and Max Woosnam,
England, won the final match in the
men's doubles of the British turf court
lawn tennis championship tournament
here to-day, defeating A. /I. and P. G.
Lowe, England, in straight sets, 6?3,
Lowe Brothers Beaten
Woosnam and Lycett forced the Lowe
brothers away from the base line, where
they are supreme, and sent them ter
riiBc smashes which the Lowes could
not handle, and it was this style of play
that carried the victors through.
In the first two sets the Lowe
brothers were outclassed, but in the
third set they staged a fine rally and
took the lead at 5?4. Woosnam and
Lycett, however, captured the next three
L games, thus winning the set and the
f Randolph Lycett, of England, and
Miss Elizabeth Ryan, of California, de?
feated Max Woosnam and Miss F. M.
Howkins, of England, in the final o?
the mixed doubles in the British turf
court tennis championship here to-day,
Lycett and Miss Ryan defeated their
opponents with remarkable ease. The
winners played a superb all-round
game, with hard driving and aggressive
volleying, overpowering the British
Miss Ryan Wins in Doubles
The final match of the women's
doubles was won by Mile. Suzanne
Lenglen, the French star, and Miss
Elizabeth Ryan, of California, who de?
feated Mrs. Beamish and Mrs. Peacock,
of England, 6?1, 6?2.
Mile. Lenglen and Miss Ryan showed
far superior form to that of their op?
ponents. They were always at the net
attacking with vigorous volleying and
Mrs. Beamish and Mrs. Peacock, on the
baseline, never had a chance.
In the final match for the All-Eng
land chamoionhip, Mr. Gilbert defeated
F. M. B. Fisher, 7?5, 4?6, 6?0.

Columbia is Preparing
For Summer Sports
With the opening of the Columbia
i University summer session, plans are
i under way for the holding of the an
1 nual inter-sictional tennis and swim
| ming tournaments. The necessity for
I resodding South Field in preparation
for the fall football season will make
the baseball series, which were held
each summer up until 1919, impossible
? The system used in these inter
sectional contests includes the organi?
zation of the students according to the
part of the country from which they
come. While the tennis tournament
is run much on the order of other con?
tests of a similar nature, swimming
i arrangements provide for elimination
contests among the competing mem?
bers from each section of the country.

Tales of a Wayside Tee
-By GRANTLAND RICE
Copyright. 1821, Naw ?ork Tribuno Ina
Much has been written about the
epochal victory of Jock Hutchison at
St. Andrews, but the real miracle of
that classic was Roger Wethered.
Wethered first came into prominence
over a year ago when he and Cyril
Tolley were ranked as the stoutest
members of the Oxford team. He was
known as a mighty hitter and a golfer
capable of good iron play, but he
never seemed to get anywhere, even in
minor amateur circles. When he came
to the United States last September
he immediately earned fame as a tre?
mendous clouter but in a scoring way
he was never taken seriously. In the
qualifying round of the United States
amateur championship he was out of it
before the first round was over, with a
total bordering on 90. Later on at the
, invitation tourney held at Morris
County he was badly beaten by Tolley
I in his first test.
In the recent British amateur cham
! pionship Wethered ?vas beaten, 4?3,
? in rather easy fashion by F. E. Fegler
i in the first round.
Naturally, when he entered the open
> championship, his name was not taken
with any great seriousness.
Up to the St. Andrews meeting
| Wethered had only been noted for play
i ing in flashes, and more often than not
1 this flash would extend to only nine
i holes. After soaking a mighty wallop
| from the tee, driving as far as Raynor
I Mitchell?further than any amateur
j now playing?he seemed to be through,
; He has never been noted as a good put
j ter, and his pitching, while brilliant at
I times, has never held up.
When the tall young Oxford stai
; took 153 for his first two rounds ii
! the British open, six strokes back o:
j Hutchison in first place, no notici
j whatsoever was taken of the event ex
cept a mild surprise that he had don<
The first real shock came when ht
finished his third round with a re
markablo 72, breaking the amaten
record of the course held by Black
well; for he was now in filth place
while Hutchison had dropped back int.
i eighth place with a 79.
This 72 was held to be a tremendou
upset, but still the Oxfordian was no
' taken seriously. The vital round, th
| totting journey, was still ahead. Her
! was the round to break the souls o
I the stalwarts, and Wethered had neve
been noted as a mighty finisher, even
in much slower company. His start
was bad. For six holes he floundered
and the "I-told-you-so's" proclaimed
their wisdom. Then came the miracle,
when Wethercd suddenly rallied and
played the last twelve holes five
strokes better than even 4's for one of
the most remarkable stretches, consid?
ering all attendant circumstances, in
the history of golf.
Beyond AH Dope
So it happened that a young amateur
with no record of achievement to speak
of in his own circle played the ancient
course 3 strokes better than it had
ever been played before by the great?
In place of weakening he grew
stronger as the finish line nearod, bio
143 for the final day being a record
that had never been broken.
After giving Wethercd due credit
for fine skill and good fighting courage
how does one explain such upsets?
How could any young, untried ama?
teur succeded where such stars ns Abe
Mitchell, George Duncan, Jim Barnes,
J H. Kirkwood. Ted Ray, Arnaud
Massey, Walter Hagen and many others
were unequal to the task?
Anything might happen in eighteen?
even thirty-six?holes. But a seventy
two-hole medal test over a champion?
ship course is the most searching test
of them all, where only the great can
survive. Wethered came forward
much as Ouimet came at Brookline
eight years ago, but no one before this
had considered Wethered a Ouimet 01
It will bo interesting to see now just
what eifect this amazing showing will
have upon his future game. It may
bring about that confidence which he
had lacked before and therefore be s
big factor in making him a new
amateur star, another Hilton or an?
other Ball. Or it may have beer
merely one of those streak flashes that
lead to nowhere. The story has beer
printed that ho intends to como t<
America shortly to take part in oui
next amateur championship, and cer
tainly no one will be more welcome
He is a very fine sportsman in everj
way and his entry will add quite j
little to the occasion. Whatever hap
pens for the future, he has achievei
one of those golfing miracles that fo:
sheer surprise must take its place nea:
the ton of the list.

Light winds marred the annual re?

were the breezes that many of the craft
found it impossible to reach the start?

the line on their scheduled guns. For?
tunately, the wind freshened as the
afternoon advanced, and it was possi?

Yacht Ciub, an old lower bay racing

j committee picked a course that took
the craft from the starting line off
| Sea Gate to Fort Hamilton, Benson

In a light breeze and against a head
j wind and tide the yachts found con
j siderable difficulty in weathering the

Although Ethel was the first yacht

In the third division Spider

Fred Anderson Beaten
In Title Net Match
The great surprise of the first an?
nual Quensborough championship sin?
gles lawn tennis tournament, which was
resumed on the clay courts of the Kew
Garden Country Club, at Kew Gardens,
yesterday afternoon, was the defeat
of Frederick C. Anderson by Dr. S. E.
Davenport, jr. Anderson never had
control of his shots, either off the
ground or overhead, whereas Davenport
was generally steady and often tricked
Anderson by changing the length of
Paul Martin was another favorite to
fall before a supposedly weaker player,
Frederick D. Powers. The latter won
by a score of 9?7, 6?3. Allen Behr
was the third strong contender to go
down, yielding to Leonard W. Knox, of
Glen Ridge, N. J., by a score of 8?6,
6?4. Behr was steady, but his shots
lacked their usual finishing power.
Dr. Davenport is now in the final

DENT?N HARBOR, Mich., July 2.
?The Benny Leonard-Sailor
Freedman fight, for the lightweight
championship, scheduled here for
July 4, was postponed to-day, when
an attack of rheumatism to the
champion grew so painful that the
Michigan Boxing Commission re?
fused to permit the fight to go on.
The pain centered in the cham?
pion's neck. The fight probably
will be held here July 16.

Harvard Pair Victorious in
ford Team Loses to U. S.
PHILADELPHIA, July 2.?East and
West divided honors in the intercol?
legiate lawn tennis championship
tournament on the courts of the Merion
Crickot Club at Haverford, to-day.
Philip Neer, of Leland Stanford Uni?
versity, California, won the singlen
title, while the doubles championship
went to a Harvard pair, J. B. Fenno jr..
and E. W. Feibleman.
Neer defeated Fenno in the final of
the singles in a five set match, 8?6,
6?1, 6?4, 1?6, 6?1. The doubles
final also went to five sets, Fenno and
Feibleman winning from Edmund Levy
and Wallace Bates, of the University
of California, 6?4, 7?5, 10?12, 8?6,
The match progressed evenly until
the fourth set, which Fenno took, six
games to one, and many believed his
easy victory in the set assured him the
title. But Neer rallied, and by employ?
ing a fast service and a backhand
cross court slice, won the next set and
match. His cross court chop passed
the Harvard player many times when
he tried to fight his way to the net.
It is the first time the American in?
tercollegiate title ever has gone to
California, Harvard has won it six?
teen times. The point score:

Fenno. 3 2 4 4 0 1 2?16?1:
Fenno showed no ill effects in the!
doubles because of his strenuous time!
in the singles. In the early stages of;
the match it was the fine net play of
Feibleman that saved the first and sec?
ond sets from going to the Pacific Coast j
racquet wielders. Yet it was this same
player who caused the match to be
prolonged until almost sunset, for he
failed to put steam enough behind easy
kills, thus left openings for the Cali
fornians to drive down the alleys.
Levy's work, however, was the feat?
ure of the match. Instead of playing!
a conservative same, as the other three
did, he smashed the ball whenever the
opportunity presented itself.
The all-American collegiate tennis
team won seven out of nine matches
i from the combined Oxford and Cam
! bridge ,team of England later in the
| day on the same courts.
The British players showed a deep
! court game in the singles, relying upon j
fast driving to overcome the Amer- !
! icans' net play. The visitors were not j
! in their best form, as they have had j
! only one workout since their arrival,
nor were the courts, heavy with the
recent rains, in the best condition for j
II. C. McCarthy, of Cambridge, who !
? captains the team, appeared to be the j
| best player of the lot. McCarthy,
whose home is in New Zealand, never- '
theless was twice defeated here this j
afternoon, first in the singles by Philip ;
I Neer, of Leland Stanford University,
who earlier in the afternoon captured
the American intercollegiate title, and !
again in the doubles, when paired with
M. D. Horn, of Cambridge, he lost j
again to Neer, paired *with another
Leland Stanford player, James Davies. 1
One of the visiting team members
who won a match is an American, now
a Rhodes scholar at Oxford. He is |
Clark Hopkins, of New Haven, Conn.,
who defeated Carl Fischer, of the Uni?
versity of Pennsylvania, 1?5, 6?4.
The only other member of the English
team tt? Win was R. R. P. Barbour, of
Oxford, an Australian, who won from
W. T. Mallery, of Cornell, 6?0, 6?3.
Fritz Bastian, Indiana University, de?
feated J. W. Lowry, Cambridge, C?1,6?1.

Advances to Round Before
Semi-Final in Invitation
Tourney at Glen Cove
The annual invitation lawn tenr.ls
J tournament of the Nassau Country
! Club, at Glen Cove, Long Island, began
yesterday afternoon on sodden turf
! courts, with a total of forty-six play?
ers drawn in the singles. In spit?
of the two days' delay in the starting
i of the tourney such fine progress was
made under the able management of
Walter L. Pate, chairman of the tonr
j namcnt committee, th^t one player,
i Leonard Beekman. reached into the
j -nund before the semi-final, and almo^c
! the entire field went -through two
j rounds of play before darkness called
i a halt.
Beekman, who drew a hyc in the
I first round, defeated James D. F.wing,
lof Yonkers, at 6?4, 3?-0, 6?1, in the
leeond, and ther. eliminated R. Mason
i Kirkland by a score of 6 3, 6?2, in
I the third brackets.
Beekman was quick to come up to the
j net position to volley and his forehand
i drives were forcing shots that gave
j him many openings. Ewing put up a
i stirring struggle against Beekman,
winning the second set by clever
volleying and driving.
Washburn Beats Herndon
Watson M. Washburn, member of
last year's Davis ('up team, won his
| first match* by defeating young E. T. '
i Herndon, of Princeton University, by?
I a score of 6?3, 6?2. There was not
much of a bound io the ball as Wash
burn drove low and flat through his
opponent's deep court.
Alfred D. Hammett found his chop
stroke a most puzzling offense against
| his opponents in the two matches he
i won yesterday. There was scarcely any
'? bound to the ball after it left the
! ground, and the veteran back-court
S player, G. A. L. Dionne, of the West
1 Side Tennis Club, was the first to suc?
cumb, being defeated by Hammett at
j 6?0, 6?3.
Dr. William Rosenbaum, who had de?
feated Ludlow Vanderventer, of New _
?Jersey, in his opening match, was the'
: next victim to fall befcr" Hammett,
i losing at 6?3, 6?4. Hammett was
I very steady, and although Rosenbaum
managed to cut off many shots by tak?
ing the ball on the volley, Hammett
often scored the deciding points with
nicely angled shots across court.
The singles will be brought into the
semi-final round to-day.
