Arthur Ashe, inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame with Australian Fred Stolle and England's Ann Haydon-Jones, said he cherishes the fun, not the fortune, that his sport provided.

"To hell with the bank account, though I've profited handsomely from tennis," said Ashe after enshrinement ceremonies on the stadium court at the Newport Casino in Newport, R.I.

"I don't have to work another day of my life if I don't want to. But I hope that everyone at the end of their playing career, at whatever level, can say the one thing I can say: 'It was fun' " . . .

Wimbledon champion Boris Becker is known by more of his countrymen than any other athlete, a polling institute reported. The Wickert Institute said 91 percent of 2,010 adult West Germans it polled this week said they had heard about Becker and 87 percent said they had a positive opinion of him. The institute said no other West German athlete had achieved such a high level of recognition and approval since it began such polls in 1951. 12:21.54. TENNIS
