Tenth-seeded Aaron Krickstein was also knocked out of the Wimbledon championships Wednesday, along with Sweden's fourth-seeded Mats Wilander. Krickstein was ousted by fellow American Bud Schultz, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6, 6-4, but his defeat was not nearly so stunning as Wilander's 6-2, 5-7, 7-5, 6-0 loss to Yugoslavia's Slobodan Zivojinovic. Schultz, who lives in Meriden, Conn., broke Krickstein's service only three times in the match, and he lost his own serve twice. Yet it was enough.
