    Background: Although "trespassing" on Wimbledon's traditional 'Ladies' Day', the Men's Singles Tennis championship between Seixas of America and Ulrich of Denmark provided some hard-hitting competition today (Tuesday) to leaven the gentler rivalry of the traditionally fair sex. Seixas brought off an impressive victory over his Danish "sparring partner."
    This match should have been held yesterday, but owing to an ill-timed cloudburst on Sunday, four of Wimbledon's courts were out of action, leaving a backlog 22 matches.

    There was much speculation as to whether E.V. Seixas, who was Men's Champion in 1953, could recapture his former glory. His performance in the match today was a personal triumph, particularly as at 43 years of age he was the oldest player in the Men's Singles.

    His opponent, 34-year-old J. Ulrich of Denmark, played hard but was unable to beat the tennis veteran. Final scores, which ran into four sets, were 6 - 3 , 6 - 4, 3 - 6, 6 - 3.
