The victory gives Czechoslovakia a sweep of the major titles in this Grand Slam tournament, Hana Mandlikova winning the women’s singles on Saturday by edging Mar tina Navratilova 7-6, 1-6, 7-6. And another Czechoslovak shared in the women’s doubles championship as Helena Sukova tea med with West Germany’s Claudia Kohde-Kilsch to defeat defending champions Navratilova and Pam Slmver. Navratilova later teamed up with Heinz Gunthardt of Switzer land to win the mixed doubles crown. But Sunday belonged to Lendl, who was in the championship match of America’s premier tennis event for the fourth straight year. And this time, he emerged a winner, only his second Grand Slam title. Ranked No. 2 in the world behind McEnroe, Lendl was making his sev enth Grand Slam final appearance. Prior to Sunday, he had won only the French Open in 1984 — beating McEnroe. Lendl’s booming serves and pow erful groundstrokes kept McEnroe on the defensive. But he also bested the New York left-hander at the net, where McEnroe normally reigns su preme. Seeking his fifth U.S. Open crown, the McEnroe who was on the Stadium Court Sunday was not the same McEnroe who put on a tennis clinic in his quarterfinal victory over Sweden’s Joakim Nystrom. McEnroe was tentative, often out of position and never had his powerful serve working. He seemed to be a step late, his re turns of service set up easy points for Lendl, and his volleys lacked the crispness that usually converts them into winners. A lot of it may have been due to Lendl’s overwhelming superiority. He sent winner after winner past the struggling McEnroe, ripping back hands and forehands cross-court and down the line. When both were at the net, Lendl appeared to win most of the points. It was the type of victory that could finally wipe away the years of frustration for Lendl, the whispers that he could win all of the small tournaments, but couldn’t win the big ones. He has done that now, and he has done it with panache. As for the other Czech, Mandliko- va’s a big girl now — but she’s not up there with the biggest yet. She has won major tournaments before — including the French Open in 1981 — but she has not re ceived the acclaim. “She has definitely matured as a K erson,” Navratilova said following er loss to Mandlikova Saturday in the finals, “and it’s showing on the court ... and that’s why she was able to put back-to-back matches like beating Chris (Evert Lloyd in the semifinals) and then me in the final. That only comes with the years.” “I think I serve better now and I’ve matured since my younger years,” Mandlikova said. “I’m still only 23 years old and I hope I still can go on longer.” HOUSTON — Houston’s Mike Rozier scored his first two NFL touchdowns, the second with 25 sec onds left in the game, to rally the Oilers to a 26-23 victory Sunday over the Miami Dolphins, the defending AFC champions. Rozier’s game-winner came on a 1-yard dive after Miami backup quarterback Don Strock replaced Dan Marino in the fourth quarter and threw a 67-yard touchdown pass to Mark Duper to give the Dolphins a 19-16 lead with 8:43 tq play. Houston quarterback Warren Moon hit Drew Hill with a 48-yard pass to start the winning drive. The Oilers faced fourth down at the Miami 9 and Moon’s pass sailed incomplete in the end zone, hitting Dolphins’comerback Fulton Walker in the back. Walker was called for pass interference, giving the Oilers the ball on the 1-yard-line. Two plays later, Rozier ran in for the winning score. Strock entered the game on the first play after Bud Brown had re covered a fumble by Houston’s Mike Rozier at the Dolphin 33. He found Duper over the middle and the fleet receiver cut to the sidelines and scored with 8:43 to play. Marino, who ended a 37-day con tract holdout early last week, started against the Oilers and directed the Dolphins to a 16-9 lead in the third quarter on field goals of 33, 36 and 23 yards by Fuad Reveiz and William Judson’s 61-yard interception re turn. After the Oilers returned from in termission trailing 16-9, Tony Zen- dejas kicked a 46-yard field goal and Rozier, playing in his first NFL game after two seasons in the United States Football League, ran three yards on the first play of the fourth quarter for a go-ahead touchdown. On the Oilers’ next possession, Rozier fumbled, setting Strock in motion. The Oilers scored in the second quarter when Butch Woolfolk circled out of the backfield, caught a pass from Moon and raced 80 yards for a touchdown and Zendejas kicked a 35-yard field goal. Marino completed 13 of 24 passes for 159 yards. He was intercepted twice by cornerback Steve Brown. Strock was near-perfect in his backup role, completing 6 of 7 passes for 132 yards and one touch down. Woolfolk, obtained in the off-sea son from the New York Giants, led the Oilers in rushing and receiving with 60 yards on 12 carries and 120 yards on three receptions. Moon finished with 12 comple tions on 17 attempts for 270 yards. Woolfolk, in his first regular sea son game as an Oiler, caught his touchdown pass behind safety Mike Kozlowski, who fell down on the play, and then outran cornerback Paul Lankford down the sidelines for the touchdown. Miami defensive end Doug Bet ters then vaulted in to block the ex tra point. Marino started the game and hit three straight passes before leaving ' fly ' the game briefly with a slight injury. Strock came on to hit a 29-yard pass to Mark Clayton to set up Reveiz’ 33- yard field goal.

RAIDERS 31, N.Y.JetsO as (Monday night game) Washington vs. DALLAS SWC earns its victories in ’85 football openers Associated Press Three Southwest Conference football teams posted hard-earned victories over the weekend, but the Houston Cougars proved once again they can’t get fired up until the championship race starts. No. 3 SMU fell behind 17-14 in the third period before outlasting surprising UTEP 35-23. Texas Tech overcame a 31-10 deficit to beat New Mexico 32-31. Baylor bounced Wyoming 39-18 with the help of Thomas Everett’s 75-yard punt return. Houston, which hasn’t won a non conference game on the road since 1979, fell 31-24 to the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. SMU, recently slapped hard with NCAA sanctions for illegal recruit ing and payments to athletes, looked like a team that been bothered by distractions. “The flatness was from within,” said Mustang tailback Reggie Du- pard, who scored on two touchdown runs and gained 131 yards on 20 carries. “We prepared hard, but we weren’t ready to play the game.” Halfback Gerald Bean’s two-point conversion in the final two minutes gave Tech its first victory over New Mexico in four years. Bean broke three tackles to score the game-win ner. “I knew 1 had to do it,” Bean said. “I saw three of their jerseys I had to A P T O P 2 0 F A R E Team W-L-T Opponent Next Game 1.

We never considered anything else.” Timmy Smith, a native of New Mexico, uncorked touchdown runs of 31 and 42 yards to help the Red Raiders come from behind. Everett’s punt return for a touch down was Baylor’s first such score since Don Huggins ran 73 yards against TCU in 1970. “My run seemed to spark our of fense,” Everett said. “I knew we to do something big to get our j going.” Wyoming Coach Al Kincaids “You have to credit Baylor. The came up with the big plays.” Houston had a massive defensjj failrue as Tulsa rushed for 335 yards and passed for 146 more. “We just weren’t pulling to gether,” Houston tackle T.J. Turner said.
