Last Saturday at New Haven the two Harvard teams in doubles played the final round of the intercollegiate tennis tournament. L. E. Ware '99, and W. M. Scudder '99, defeating M. D. Whitman '99, and J. D. Forbes '99, in a closely contested five set match. As the cup was already won for Harvard, the match was merely to decide the holders of the doubles championship.
Whitman and Forbes played a remarkably steady game and several imes were within two or three points of winning the match. Ware and Scudder were erratic, but made a brilliant and successful finish. Ware went to pieces in the middle of the match, and hit continually into the net.
The third and fourth sets were the best exhibitions of tennis given here during the tournament. Ware regained his form in the fourth, and, with Scudder, had Whitman and Forbes at his mercy in the last set.
In the finals of the consolations Goodbody, of Williams, defeated Neely, of Cornell, in a close three-set match.
Ware and Scudder, of Harvard, beat Whitman and Forbes, of Harvard, 3-6, 6-3, 6-8, 9-7, 6-1.
T. P. Goodbody, of Williams, beat J. C. Neely, of Cornell, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.
