Richards not only took two sets
from the title 1 holder but came
within a point of winning a third.
Tilden, however, facing the clos
est call he has had since he took
five sets to turn back Johnston
for the 1922 title rose to the
greatest heights of brilliancy to
check the young Olympic cham
pion. I The scores were 4-6, 6-2,
