Summary by Patrick Dunne
The first two matches were one sided affairs with the Australians taking control early and wining the rubbers. The final two matches were great matches and were great examples of contrasting styles on the tennis court. The stronger Americans and their heavy hitting vs. the Australian floor game. The matches hinged on 5/5 sets in each and the Americans did enough to win the big points. A big day of doubles follows with the Clothier Cup up for grabs for the better squad.
