    Background: ROD LAVER BEAT MARTIN MULLIGAN 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 IN THE ALL-AUSTRALIAN FINAL OF THE MEN'S SINGLES AT THE WIMBLEDON, UK, TENNIS TOURNAMENT ON JULY 6. IN 52 MINUTES, LAVER RETAINED THE TITLE IN A FAST AND EXCITING MATCH WITH MULLIGAN - UNNOMINATED, UNSEEDED AND UNFANCIED - WHOSE PERFORMANCES HAVE SURPRISED EVERYONE AT WIMBLEDON.

    LAVER, WHO EQUALS THE RECORD OF JEAN BOROTRA BY PLAYING IN A FOURTH CONSECUTIVE FINAL, GAVE A BRILLIANT DISPLAY OF POWER AND CONTROL. THE 23-YEAR-OLD CHAMPION FROM QUEENSLAND WAS PRESENTED WITH THE CUP - THE MOST COVETED TROPHY OF THE TOURNAMENT - BY QUEEN ELIZABETH. THE QUEEN WAS WATCHING THE FINAL FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1957.

    MULLIGAN, AGED 21 YEARS, WAS PRESENTED WITH THE SILVER MEDAL. HIS VERY APPEARANCE ON THE CENTRE COURT IN THE FINAL WAS ATTRIBUTED TO THE UNFORTUNATE INJURIES SUFFERED BY TWO SEEDED PLAYERS, ROY EMERSON AND RAMAN KRISHNAN, BUT EXPERTS WERE AGREED THAT HE WAS THE MOST IMPROVED PLAYER OF THE YEAR.
