Semi-final round--F. J. Sulloway 2L. defeated P. L. Miller 3L. 6-0, 7-5, 6-4.
The match between N. W. Niles and R. B. Dresser was not closely contested. Niles played a faster and steadier game. His play at the net was especially good. F. J. Sulloway had little difficulty in defeating P. L. Miller. His drives were hard and sure, he covered the court well, and his play at the net was good. In the first set Miller was completely outplayed, being unable to win a single game. In the second set, however, he found himself, and for a time the points were sharply contested. Sulloway won by playing a steadier game.
