Shorter Davis Cup Series Sought SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -Australian tennis officials said oday (hey will seek to have the Davis Cup played over a limited period to enable countries to field their top teams. The move follows the s u r - prise defeat of Australia's defending Cup holders by India in the Eastern Zone final in Calcutta Tuesday. "Our best players were not available to us," said Esca Stephens, chairman of the Australian selectors. *'The American promoters have ruined the Davis Cup by tying up the best players. There is just too much money around Tor players in America. "There will have to be a revi : sion of the whole Davis Cup setup". Stephens said the Lawn Tennis Association of Australia favored playing all rounds of the Cup within a three-or-four-week period. Australia sent a below- strength team to Calcutta. The country's Cup-winning stars, among them Rod Laver and John Newcombe, were com- niitted to professional tourneys in the United States. . The same situation affected top American players when the U.S. team was defeated by Colombia earlier this year. India's victory over Australia ends the 37-year domination of Ihe Cup by Australia and the [Jntted States. No other country has won the trophy since 1936 ivhen Britain triumphed. Former Australian Davis Cup itar Adrian Quist said the tourney had been relegated to being a second-class event. "I don't blame the players going where the big money is," he said. "But I feel it is a tragedy that our best team is not available for the Cup."
