Fox Wins University Tennis Crown With 6-1, 6-2 Victory Over Brady

Graduate School Star Uses Booming Serve, Powerful Forehand in Easy Triumph

Adams Fox, a second-year graduate student and former Union College tennis star, made short work of Freshman Bill Brady yesterday afternoon in the finals of the University's summer not tournament, winning 6-1, 6-2 at the Dillon Field House courts.

Forcing the play throughout the match, Fox used his booming service and a powerful forehand drive from the baseline to subdue his younger opponent with little trouble. Only once in the entire match was Brady able to win a game on his own service, while Fox's supremacy was threatened only in the early stages of the second set when the Freshman ace battled on even terms for the first four games.

Brady Wins On Upset

Brady, officially number two singles player for Coach Bob Ashley's Varsity netman this summer, advanced to the final round by virtue of a minor upset of Lane McGovern in a hectic three-set struggle, 4-6, 11-9, 6-3. At one time in the long second set McGovern was at match point, but Brady fought off the threat and subdued his higher-seeded rival.

Fox's semi-final victory came at the expense of Andy Muldoon, whom he defeated 6-2, 1-6, 6-4.


Still in its preliminary stages is the University doubles tourney, in which four duets have reached the quarterfinals, while a consolation singles tournament is also getting under way.
