Alex Olmedo must prove his right
to be top-seeded in the Wimble
don tennis championships today
against the man who handed him
a surprising defeat less than a
week ago.. Ramannthan Krish
nan of India.
Krishnan whipped Olmedo, 8-6,
6-1, last Friday in the semi-final
round of the London Grass Courts
tournament and their clash in the
third round of men's singles here
was expected to highlight a pro
gram today that includes matches
in almost every section.
Seven . Americans still are
"alive" in men's singles five,
including Olmedo, in the third
round and two in the second.
And seven Americans still are
in competition in women's sin
gles five in the third round
and two in the second. ' -
Not all were scheduled to see
action today, however, as tourney
officials put together a mixed pro
gram including both singles and
doubles play in the men's and
women's divisions, with matches
from different rounds complicat
ing the picture.
' Barry MacKay of Dayton, Ohio
Olmedo's running-mate on the
U.S. Davis Cup team, als6 was
listed for third-round action but
was expected to have a much
easier time against Jan Leschly
of Denmark. In a- pair of men's
second-round singles matches
originally scheduled' Wednesday
but postponed, when rain delayed
the program, Malcolm Fox of
Baltimore, Mdi, faced Jean Molt
nari of France and Jacques Grt
gry of Alhambra, Calif., met
Manuel Santana of Spain.
Attention in doubles centered on
a first-round match between the
gray-haired U.S; combine of
Gardnar Mulloy of Coral Gables,
Fla., and Budge Patty of Los An
geles and the crack Italian Davis
Cup team of Nicola Pietrangoli
and Orland' Sirola. - Mulloy .and

NEW YORK (UPD Heavy
weight contender. Eddie Machen
and James D. Norris' Chicago

principals in Thursday - night's

for more than a million dollars.
That sum is being asked in fed

Machen a return bout before meet
ing heavyweight champion Floyd
The suit, which was filed Tues
day, was the second legal action
taken by Machen in .connection
with the alleged return-bout con
tract. Earlier, the Redding, Calif,
fighter had been turned down in

injunction that would forbid Jo

Swedish Johansson knocked out
Machen in the first round of their
