Roper Barrett, captain of the- English Davis Cup team, contends that tennis has changed more than Its players. "Modern singles play eerlnlnly la more spectacular, but that Is not n mailer of skill, it Is only a change In style," explains Barrett, now 03. and one of the original Drills!) icam of 1900 which wns routed by Ow'lght P. Davis, donor of the world Iropliy; Malcolm n. Whitman, and Holcombe Ward nt the old Longwood Crlek- fl Club, Boston. "In llie mutter of technique, one of the chief difference between pif-wiir nnd modern players lies in the way the ball Is taken. Whereas the older player hit Ihe ball after It had reached the lop of Ihe bound. It is (lie practice now to .strike It a second ijv so before. That gives the re- Ci'TH'r an advantage." • Barrett, who has seen .several iM'nmilltjns of stars come find to. and played with many of them] believes that on the whole the '-lame is advancing, due to the'in- creasing venue of professional ":o:Hh!n!/. Dcrmisc he prevailed at Wimbledon for the third .successive season, a feat thai had not been accomplished since Anthony P. Wlldlnu ruled from 1910 lo lOIH,- inclusive. Fred Perry is belnu compared more than ever with :he masters of the pu/t. ! >" I'li-iily (iood "1 .should hesitate lo say whclli- ! or Perry is n finer player than William T. Tilrtcn at his". writes Barrclt from Ixindon. "Again, it is difficult lo say whether the service of Ellsworth Vines is more effective than llie ransislent and powerful service of Maurice E. Me-Loughlin." In tennis, as In any oilier snort, It Is not easy lo give satisfactory answers to sueh miesllons, Barrett 'Mints oul. "For one Ihlna, the older player like, myself Ls suspected by Ihe vounger generation of being pre- incllned lo the middle-aycd habit Inclined ol (lie middle-aged habit of declaring Ihat things nre not. as good as they were." asserts, the •enowncd Englishman. "I hope that, I may be ncqillttcd of harboring these amiablu fall- Ings. At any rale, 1 Co not take Ihe view that -tennis has degenerated or that the leading players of the present are Inferior to the foremost players of pre-war. Wim- olodon." Barrett disagrees with the. fain- oi|St Belgian, Paul de Herman, and a number of oilier veterans who hold that the lint of tennis giants lias dwindled lo one of mere pygmies. "On the. contrary, I have conic lo the conclusion, wllh u nrsthond knowledge of the play of the past nnd after a careful sludy of the play ot today, that there is very liitle difference In skill nnd ablll- ly between the leading exponents of the game now and those of 30 years ago," declares the lirlt: Ish skipper. "These questions of the rival merits of players of different tennis generations never ran be put to llie lesl, and Ihe must we cap .say Ls Hint, ^taking the general run of experienced opinion, II ls| agreed Ihat (here Is not much In It."

"There Is one aspect of tennis in which llie best play of 30 years "go was undoubtedly superior lo Hint of today, and that, Is-men's doubles." concludes Barrett. "Everyone who knew [lie , pre-war Iiame i.s agreed that, as a JKilr.j the Dohertys we're belter than any combination we have seen since. | '"Iliey were .supremo in Ihelr own way, nnd ' no one who saw Ihein. wllli llieir perfect nnder- Bliinillng, their definite plan of campaign .and consistently Koiind play, would question the ii.sserllon thai they have not been approached In effectiveness by any doubles players of .Inter times."
