ON THE COVER
As Artist Edward Sorel depicts the crisis in tennis, Amateurs Laver, Fraser, Sirola, Emerson and Pietrangeli clamor for the attention of Borotra from one silver cup (left), while Pros Buchholz, Gonzlaes, Segura, Hoad and MacKay cluster in another. The powers that run tennis stand still in the middle.
An extraordinary investigation into the sordid background of Boxer Sonny Liston sheds light on whether or not this controversial figure deserves to have a shot at the heavyweight title.
As the U.S. track team leaves for Europe, a comparison with its foreign foes shows where it should win and where (for example, against Russia's Valeri Brumel) it will likely lose.
