Americans Win
Back Davis Cup
Continued frnm I'iicr One
Patterson showed a complete reversal
of his yesterday's form nnd plnyiW in
excellent style, eontrnsting strongly
with Brookes, who seemed to tire.
Johnston appeared to be slow and
failed nt critical moments to follow up
bis service.
As the second set began Johnston
seemed to have tnken to heart the les
sons of the defent administered to him
nnd Tllden in tho first, nnd when the
Americnns won on Brookes' service at
"three, all" the power of the Yankee
pnlr became npparent. They followed
by winning two straight, and. after
losing one, ran out the set. In the
later gnme.-i of this set Johnston's vol
leying wns superb, while Brookes' wus
Perfect Play
In the third set Johnston never
missed a point lu the struggle, nnd he
nnd Tilden dominated the court, carry
ing the nttack to their opponents every
step of the way. Brookes mulled some
apparently easy volleys, while Patter
son reverted to the medley of errors
ho committed in the singles. Tilden
wns nn idenl partner to the dashing
Johnston, und the Americnns went
through to victory without losing n
single game. Patterson seemed to huvc
lost all his confidence, even In bis
overhead shots, and he fniled to smash
even easy tosses from the Yankee
TilHcn nnd Johnston gnined n big ad
vantage nt the opening of the fourth
set by wining the first game on Pntter
son'ti service. Then Johnston and
Brookes served and won. Tilden lost
his service, but Patterson loit his by
weak, hesitating piny, giving tho Amer
icnns n lend of H to 2. Tlldeu nnd
Johnston then went nhead and needed
but one gnme for the set, when Brookes
won n love game on his service nmld
the npplnusu of the great crowd, Johu
ston, however, came through with a
wonderfully served game, which wns
savagely met by tho Australnsliins, who
were now nlnyiuc desperately. The
gnme stood 40-15 when Brookes scored
witli n fine smnbh nnd It seemed the de
fenders would Iks nble to weather the
storm. Brookes, however, was benten
by tho next berved ball, returning it
- . . .. .. '.I . . ,, .
ucross the baseline. lth thnt bnll went
possession of the Davis Cup.
Tilden nnd Johnston were modest in
victory. They walked quietly to
net, where they were met by Brookes
and Patterson, who congratulated them
heartily, as the throngs that had wit
nessed tho stirring match cheered lus
tily. Bolow Form
Throughout the entire match Brookes
wns below his usunl doubles form. Ho
plnyed well, but never reached the
heights he attained iu past teunis
Johnston deserves much of the credit
for tho American victory. His service
games were won by lightning shots to
the weak spots In his opponent s armor,
nnd his drives were certain winners
where there was tho slightest chanco
for n brenk-through. In many volley
ing rallies ho bent Brookes by sheer
merit, but nt times ho wns slow In
going to tho net.
Tllden did not show ns scvero n Berv
i ni im fliisheil in tho singles yester
day and he was not nt Ills best nt
doubles. Ho often was out of posi
tion, but extrlcnted himself from bad
situations by the brilliancy of his
Tho Americans formed nn unques
tionatily superior team, Brookes and
Puttavson being much below the form
they exhibited ut Sydney Inst Jnnunry.
Patterson wns frequently caught In the
back court during rnllies, nnd his
wenkness wnsTelzed upon by the chal
lengers. Brookes attempted In the Intit
two sets a play often used In seni -mixed
doubles, dashing in successfully
on many occasions, but against such
ployers ns the American champions his
efforts were futile.
Patterson undoubtedly won tho first
set, but beyond question his poor work
lost the next three. Tho Americans
scored their victory by the excellence
of their strokes, by pressing every weak
position nnd by scoring brilliantly many
tfmes when in difficulties.
Fourth Victory'
Today's victory for tho Americans
mnkes the fourth time that they have
won the famous trophy, donated to In
ternntloniil lnwn tennis by Dwlght F.
Davis, of St. IOiils, in 1000. This nlso
makes the fifteenth time thnt the cup
'has been 'competed fof In tweuty years.
America last won the cup in 101.'! at ,
This yenr's mntches were remark
able for the fact that three of the four
competing players, Tilden, Johnston
nnd Pnttcrson, bad never plnjed in
IJnvis cup matches before. With the
nddltlon of this trio, seventy-one play
ers, representing nine nations, have
competed nt various times for the cup
since 1000. Of this number the British
Isles huve used eighteen and the United
States nineteen. Australia hns used
eleven nnd France, Belgium and South
Africa follow with five each. All told
these players took port in 1KJ8 matches
which went to n decision, and one
match resulted in a tie.
The veteran Brookes holds the in
dividual honors, having been a mem
ber of the Austrnlnsinn team in nine
different years. During this period he
played forty-seven matches, of which
ho won thirty-six. The late Anthony
Wilding, a compeer of Brookes, who
was killed during the world war, held
second honors, for during his seven
years of competition he played thirty
seven matches, of which he won twenty
eight. J. C. Parke, the English vet
eran, ranks third with twenty-three
mntches and twelve victories.
W. A. Iiirned and M. K. Mclaugh
lin, two outstanding sturs of Ameri
can tennis, are 'tied with twenty
mntches each. I.nrned hns a slightly
better winning nverngo, with thirteen
victories to McLoughlln's twelve. The
letter's defeat of both Wilding mid
Brookes in 1014, when the Australa
sians were nt the height of their court
career, however, was undoubtedly the
greatest individual feat in tlio annals
of international tenuis.
