Lewis Hoad and Ken Rosewall are disappointed in the draw for the Victorian singles championship which starts at Kooyong on Thursday.

"Vic. has beaten me foul times overseas this year, and I would have liked to meet Mm again before the Davis Cup round." he continued. "It Is a pity the seeding were not made to alter the semi-finals for the championship." Rosewall said Trabert and himself had won two matches each this year, and he expected to be drawn against him in the semifinal of the Victorian title. 'The only way to get practice is in the actual (same, and I was looking forward to playing Trabert," he added. Here Today Rosewal and Hoad fly to Melbourne tomorrow.
