ENGLISH CHAMPION AT MENTONE. (from our own correspondent.) LONDON, March 14. . At Mentone, on Sunday, in the Internar tional Lawn Tennis Tournament, A. F. Wilding secured tho Championship of the Riviera, by defeating F. W. Rahe (6-2, G-3, 6-1) in tho final round of the Gentlemen's Open Singies. In the final round of the Open Doubles, however, Rahe and "11. Williams" beat Wilding- and 'R. Latour" (2-6, 1-6, 6-1, 6-4, 8-6). "Honours on the Riviera" (writes a correspondent) "have again fallen thickly on Wilding. A week ago he won the Monte Carlo Cup for tho fourth time; on Friday lattt he 1 won the Forme-Becherat Cup for the third rucccesive year at Mentono, making this valuabio gold trophy bis own properly. As at Monto Carlo, th- champion's only dangerous rival was __1. Decugia; he alone among Continental players seems to possess tho confidence and the temperament requisite for a match on level terms with Wilding. Dccugis failed to win tho For.ne-8.-cherat final as ho had failed at Monte Carlo, but h_ made an excellent fight, and his tennis was ' quito as- good as the champion's. I '.'Wi'dmg was a little below par physically, ; and probably this was why his resistance in I the third ect visibly weakened, and the ■ Frenchman won it from 3 by a very brilliant display. Like n smouldering five, Dccugis : bursts into flames at -unexpected moments. iHo hnd mndc his effort in a level first set in ! which both men volleyed much mor-i than ; usual; than yielded up the second from 1, | m'stakes in tiinintr and distance coming frcquentlv. But be_ had Ho sooner drawn, level i at 2 all in the third ret, wlu-n the ccnn'<-j_'on 'of the match entire'y changed. Decu-ds was now attacki?i_r, Wilding defending. Inr'ead of I tho latter finishing rallies at the __■?_, he found himself paspod by oblique, drives, replies to his volley. Lobbing was of little avail: D*ciigis smsehod cleanly ard jleci'sively. Had the Frenchman maintained this form in the fourth set, I h* wcu'd havo won it and the match, but the pace . had been too the strain too exacting. Threo all was callrd in tho fourth te', and ft ' long barter ensued for the seventh -g-me, , Decugia being 'vantare feveral t : me,-.. A.ter ; that etepdiie-s, so va'urb'c an riEB-t, prevailed; but he has not been chollentr<"d so severely on the Riviera for two years." OPAWA v. ADDINGTON.
