Ivan Lendl could very well win the All-England tennis championship at Wimbledon next year. It might even be likely. But don't expect to see him solidly in the hunt for the U. S. Open golf championship a few years from now. Curtis Strange may win his third consecutive U. S. Open at Medinah next June. But, don't look for him in the finals at that other U. S. Open in Flushing Meadow, N.Y., in September. Or ever.

They held a quiet little party for Ellsworth Vines in the desert last week, and the guest list read like a Who's Who of Tennis. There to honor Vines were Jack Kramer, Pancho Gonzalez, Pancho Segura, Gene Mako, Charlie Pasarell, Ray Moore and Fred Perry. Others who sent messages because they couldn't be there included Tom Gorman, Bob Falkenburg, Rod Laver, Tony Trabert and John Newcombe. That group represents 40 Grand Slam singles titles.

How would Boris Becker, Ivan Lendl, Stefan Edberg and the rest of today's players stack up against their predecessors as stars in men's tennis? Not very well, if the matches were played under the old conditions, Ellsworth Vines said. Today's players have a real edge, not only in equipment, where composition rackets hold an obvious advantage over wooden ones, but also in the serve, Vines said. "It's an entirely new ballgame now," Vines said.

It is early on an cool and windy fall morning in Pasadena, and tiny La Pintoresca park is quiet. The swings are empty. No one is climbing the steps of the slide or arriving at the bottom in a whoosh. La Pintoresca, on the northeast corner of Fair Oaks and Washington, is one of the oldest parks in Pasadena. This morning, it's also one of the quietest.
