DEATHS ELSEWHERE

HY ZAUSNER, 84, founder of the Port Washington Tennis Academy, which has nurtured John McEnroe, Vitas Gerulaitis and some 10,000 lesser-known young players since it was established on Long Island in 1965, died Wednesday in Manhasset, N.Y., after a stroke. Mr. Zausner, a successful dairyman who was the largest importer of Danish cheeses in the United States, was introduced to tennis at the age of 57 by Nick Bollettieri, who now operates a 54-court tennis factory in Bradenton. With Bollettieri's help, Mr. Zausner conceived the idea of founding the non-profit tennis center to give youngsters a wholesome alternative to drugs.

ANTHONY ASTRACHAN, 59, a writer, editor and former foreign correspondent for the Washington Post, died Monday in New York City after a heart attack. He was the author of the 1986 book How Men Feel: Their Responses to Women's Demands for Equality and Power.
