    Background: Tennis -- and Britain's Virginia Wade beat fellow-countryman Sue Barker in the semi-finals of the Toray Sillook Women's Championships in Japan on Saturday (17 September). Czechoslovak expatriate Martina Navratilova also went through to the finals by beating Australia's Wendy Turnbull.

    SYNOPSIS: A near-capacity crowd in Tokyo's Yoyogi Olympic gymnasium saw Miss Navratilova, at the near end, go ahead 6-2 in the first set, and take a quick lead in the second.

    The powerful Czech girl, still serving, bored on to make it 5-2.

    She lost the next one, and in the final game still had a little difficulty with Miss Turnbull's well-pointed services.

    But Miss Navratilova made no mistakes with the Australian girl's match point service.

    Miss Navratilova -- 6-2, 6-3.

    In the other, all-British semi-final, Sue Barker, serving, got off to a good start with the opening point of the match.

    But by the third set it was a different picture. Miss Wade, serving, took the first set 6-4, lost the second 2-6, but recovered in the last set to lead 5-2.

    Miss Wade serving -- point Miss Barker.

    Miss Wade serving for match point -- and she made no mistake to put herself into the finals 6-4, 2-6, 6-2.
