Tennis Hopes

Tennis Hopes

Victoria will field its strongest men's tennis team ever at the Easter Tournament this year.

With three Davis Cup players, the men's team appears an unbeatable combination for major honours, Hawkes and Souter, New Zealand Davis Cup reps in 1962 are ably supported by Vic Stubbs, Wellington rep and Tan Sk, leading Malayan player.

Tan who took a set off Souter in the finals of the team selection matches, was picked as Malaya's number one Davis Cup player in 1962. Souter is playing second in the team this year to Richard Hawkes who could not play in the selection matches because of knee trouble.

The women's team: Sandra Parsons, Alison Park, Linette Almond and Beverley Watts has not the potential of the men but should beat Canterbury at least.

The matches are to be played at Khandallah Tennis Club in Delhi Crescent.—Sports Correspondent.
