    Background: FORMER WIMBLEDON CHAMPION KAREN SUSMAN WENT THROUGH TO THE THIRD ROUND OF THE SINGLES TODAY (WEDNESDAY) WITH A FIGHTING VICTORY OVER RUSSIA'S ANNA DMITRIEVA.

    THE AMERICAN GIRL WON 4-6, 6-3, 7-5. THE TIE BEGAN YESTERDAY, BUT BAD LIGHT LEFT IT UNFINISHED OVERNIGHT. MRS SUSMAN CAME OUT TODAY A SET AND 2-1 DOWN, BUT MRS DMITRIEVA NEVER REALLY SETTLED DOWN AND SHOWED FEW GLIMPSES OF HER BRILLIANCE YESTERDAY.

    MRS DMITRIEVA MADE A BAD START TODAY, LOSING FOUR GAMES IN A ROW AS THE CALIFORNIAN GIRL RACED THROUGH THE SECOND SET.

    SHE LOOKED LIKE BEING WHITE-WASHED IN THE FINAL SET AS MRS SUSMAN CRUISED TO A 4-0 LEAD. BUT SHE REGAINED HER TOUCH TO PULL UP TO 3-4. MRS SUSMAN TOOK THE NEXT GAME TO LEAD 5-3 AND THEN HAD THREE MATCH POINTS.

    BUT MRS DMITRIEVA SAVED THEM BEFORE FINALLY GOING DOWN IN THE 12TH GAME. NOW MRS SUSMAN MEETS THE CHAMPION, MARGARET SMITH, OF AUSTRALIA.
