W. H. Laverack '01 won the final match in the tennis tournament yesterday, defeating S. H. Derby 2L., 6-4, 7-5, 2-6, 6-3. The match was well played throughout and was won by Laverack's steadiness at critical points. Derby played a backcourt game entirely and tried to pass his opponent by drives along the sidelines and cross court. His strokes were not as sure as in the previous matches and his lobs were generally too short. In the third set, however, he was more successful and won, 6 to 2. Laverack played a safe game most of the time but his strokes were well executed and he played Derby's back-hand with good effect. His kills at the net were generally well placed but sometimes lacked force.
This afternoon at 3 o'clock Laverack will play E. R. Marvin 2L. for the champion ship of the University.
