Mr. Wallis Myers, writing to the ; Daily Telegraph, acclaims the following i as the order of the world's ten best tennis players: Tilden, Johnston, Patterson, Richards,. Anderson, Cochet, i O'Hara, Wood, Williams, Kingscote, ; and|Gobert. He adds: There w.iU be' no dispute as to the first two. I have j always considered , Tilden intellectually i. superior to Johnston on the court and i. as also possessing a capacity to raise his game ,to the highest standard at the moment of greatest peril, even in \ the fifth set. Patterson's victory at! Wimbledon entitles him to third place. ! His service had been the dominating '. feature of his record, but those able to return it confidently exposed Patter-, son's limitations. Anderson was a little unlucky at Wimbledon, and unluckier still in benig ill in America prior to the Davis Cup. He was a finer stroke player than Patterson, and not un- ' equal to the latter as a match player. ! Cochet's best is still to come. He , showed himself a better grass player in America than in England. O'Hara Wood suffered from his shoulder in j America when he was beaten by Cochet. \ Alonso .played finely against Anderson ■ at Wimbledon, and his record in > doubles, especially in the Davis Cup ! matches, entitled him to seventh place. : S —Aus.-N.Z.
