Nnu ' South Wulc.s Kpiinlinnl.s you haven t and find yourself, — —— faced with The telling advantage possesssee by the Aussies is their .superiority in doubles play. They have been the world's best at doubles for some 20 years, to our certain knowledge, and they still are. This mainly due, so far as we've ever been able to figure out, because they love to play doubles as much as they do singles and work to perfect themselves at it. Once in Half Century We, on the other hand, have never paid much attention to the team game, officially or otherwise, and have always depended primarily on our singles stars to try to •win the Davis Cup. Only once since the matches originated iin 1900 have we won the trophy by the margin of a doubles victory, and that was back in 1913. The Australians have beaten is in four Challenge Rounds because they had the better doubles combination. It's all right, in other words, the out necessity of win of four single ning three matches. 2-1 Favorites We estimate that the Austral ians will least 2-1 favorite to win next. Tuesday's whether they pair Lewis Hoad will his regular partner, Ken or with Rex Hartwig against on team of Tony Tr.ibert and VI Sexias. They might win it li straight sets. Beyond thnt our prediction I that Trabert will win both hi singles matches with Hoad am Rosewall nnd that Seixas will ,n. surely lose to both the wonder boys the hardest fought and closest o the four contests, the one upoi which the tie might, well swing should be the one between Seixn and Hoad.
