J., Aug. 13 (fl>)—He doesn't mean it just that way, but when Harry Hopman, captain of the Australian Davis Cup team, speaks of Adrian Quist you get the idea he is talking about the invisible man. "Of course he played here last year and is playing now," Hopman NEIGHBORLY NEIGHBORS By OSCAR HITT OH, PETERS, CAREFUL said when reminded the cherubic- faced Quist seemed a rather robust spook. "But the Americans haven't seen the real Quist. Last year he was good up in Canada before we came down for the cup play, but he left his game up there. And he hasn't reached his top form this year." Hopman had watched Quist and John Bromwich sweep their singles matches with the Cubans yesterday, and then had taken Bromwich out on a side court for practice. There has been some talk that Bromwich is under-tennised, and needs some hard work. Hopman denies this, but yesterday Bromwich looked like a man trying to go through the 18-day diet in one day. He must have played eight sets all told. And when lie was through he was sagging like a mountain bridge. Quist, Bromwich, Hopman and Jack Crawford make up the Australian squad. But the team is Quist and Bromwich. The other two are just lifeboats to be launched in emergency. Quist is a little on the short side, affable in a detached sort of way, with a roundish face and slightly drooping eyelids. Bromwich is tall, gangly and reddish. He holds his racquet with two hands and swings at the ball like he was trying to ring the bell at a county fair. Crawford, a veteran of 13 years of tournament competition, is a big, raw-boned, sad-faced individual, known on the court as a stylist. Hopman, small, blond, alert and genial, is a ready talker and doesn't pull punches. . Although the Aussies still have Yugoslavia to meet before they tackle the Americans in the challenge round, Hopman gave the impression the preliminary zone matches were just something to get out of the way. The Aussies really are gunning for the Yanks, and no mistake.
