    Background: THE DEFENDING WIMBLEDON WOMEN'S SINGLES CHAMPION, MRS. BILLIE JEAN KING OF THE UNITED STATES WON HER FIRST ROUND MATCH IN STRAIGHT SETS TODAY (TUESDAY). MRS. KING HAD TO FIGHT HARD, HOWEVER, TO BEAT 19-YEAR-OLD FELLOW AMERICAN, "PEACHES" BARTKOWICZ 7-5, 6-4.

    MRS. KING TOOK NEARLY AN HOUR TO OVERCOME THE TENACIOUS TEENAGER FROM MICHIGAN. CENTRE COURT NERVES FROZE MISS BARTKOWICZ'S STROKING AS SHE COLLECTED ONLY FIVE POINTS IN THE FIRST THREE GAMES AGAINST MRS. KING. BUT WITH MRS. KING ALSO MAKING MANY UNFORCED ERRORS, MISS BARTKOWICZ FOUND HER TOUCH, PARTICULARLY ON HER TWO-HANDED BACKHAND AND FROM THEM ON THE CHAMPION HAD A TOUGH FIGHT ON HER HANDS.

    MRS. KING IS STILL FAVOURITE TO COMPLETE A HAT-TRICK OF WIMBLEDON WINS -- THIS TIME AS A PROFESSIONAL -- ALTHOUGH AUSTRALIA'S MRS. MARGARET COURT IS TIPPED TO CHALLENGE STRONGLY.
