WISH HE WERE HERE
Sirs:
Permit me to tip my hat in the direction of Australia, and to Ken Rosewall and Lew Hoad. Bless 'em for turning away from Jack Kramer's gilded offers to clean up with their racquet talent. I am glad that they will remain with the amateurs and continue to inject excitement into all of the center courts of the tennis world—and will with pride fight to hold the Davis Cup for their homeland. Would that Mr. Trabert could have remained to fight and regain the Davis Cup for his country.
