Davis Defeats Ware.
D. F. Davis '00 defeated L. E. Ware '99 in the final match of the state tennis tournament at Longwood yesterday by the score of 6-4, 6-4, and 6-1. Davis played an exceptionally strong and brilliant game. His smashes at the net were accurate and sure and he passed Ware time and again by swift strokes along the side lines. Ware at first attempted to lob, but could not avoid the fierce smashes of his opponent. In the last set he tried to pass Davis by strokes, but was even less successful.
This afternoon at 3.30 Davis will play M. D. Whitman 1L., the present state champion. If Davis keeps up his form of yesterday he should win, but the match is certain to be close.
