Yesterday afternoon N. W. Niles '09 won the College championship in tennis for the fourth successive year by defeating A. Sweetser '11, 6-3, 7-5, 6-1. The match was played at the Longwood Cricket Club in Brookline.
Niles won the first and third sets without much effort, but in the second set Sweetser showed good form and the match was very close. The service of both players was very good, but Niles's play at the net was superior to Sweetser's and his overhead work surer. Sweetser's chief weakness lay in the fact that he neglected to go to the net when an opportunity was offered him, and that he often allowed Niles to get to the net when he might have kept him in the back of the court.
