NOTES. (By VOLLEY.) Anthony "Wilding' competed at the French covered court championship last Easier, and succeeded in winning 1 the French championship. Decugis, the best French player, was absent, having eons to Athens to take part in • the Olympian Games, consequently the meeting "was robbed of some interest. There was a large entry, including many of the best English players. In the final Wilding, met his old opponent, M. J. Q-. Ritohi©, winning 6-2, '"B-l, 6-1. On the Continent this season these two players hay/» met in eighteen sets, and the New Zealander has not loat one. In the final of the Champion Doubles Wilding and Ritchie were opposed by the English flayers Caridia and Flavelle, but the combination against them was not strong enough, and Wilding scored his second championship, 6-2, 6-2, 3-6, 6-4. The Davis Cup matches this year have not excited the interest that wa!s shown when Norman Brookes was competing last year. The Australasian team was composed of Anthony Wilding and L. O. S. Poidevin. The latter is a Sydney roan, who has devoted himself more to cricket than to lawn tennis, and was never considered in. the first flight of KW South Wales players. Since his arrival in England he has taken part only two or three times in tournaments of any importance. The first word of the play oanie when it was stated that America beat Australasia in the doubles by three sets to two. It appears that either Austria and France forfeited to I these pairs in the first round, or that they were so decisively beaten as to leave Australasia and America to play off for the right jto challenge the holders. . • The celebrated American double, Ward and Wright, was broken up this year,' and Ward j was partnered by Raymond Little, a former Princeton champion, but the Americans' great efforts to win this cup have again failed, as the latest cable message states that the English champions easily . defended their titla in the challenge round.
