TENNIS—ROY EMERSON, Australian and U.S. titleholder, defeated Neale Fraser 3-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 for the South Australian tennis championship at Adelaide, Australia. Fraser, the world's No. 1 amateur until a knee injury and operation forced him to rest for nearly a year, showed almost a complete return to form as he eliminated Wimbledon champion Rod Laver in a five-set semifinal match. Margaret Smith beat Darlene Hard in the women's finals 6-4, 5-7, 6-4.
