Varsity Tennis Favored To Defeat Brown Today

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The varsity tennis team journeys to Brown today to defeat the Bruins. After the wins of the past week, this match will be definitely anti-climatic, and will serve only to give the Crimson its thirteenth win of the season, and its seventeenth straight win since it lost to Miami last spring.

Brown's number one man, Ed Flattau has been undefeated for Brown all season, until he lost last weekend, according to the Brown Daily Herald, "to MIT's sophomore sensation, Jeff Winicourt," 6-2, 6-2. In the Crimson's encounter with MIT, Dale Junta defeated "the sophomore sensation," 6-1, 6-1, and therefore today's number one match should not be much of a contest.

Indeed the entire contest will probably follow the same path as the MIT-Harvard match, which the Crimson won, 15-0, since MIT and Brown played a fairly even match, the Bruins winning, 5-4.

This varsity team is definitely a stronger squad than had been supposed in many pre-season predictions. Most observers figured that the Crimson would have a very powerful first singles position and little else. They did not forsee the amazing play of Steve Gottlieb at second singles or the emergence of Larry Sears as a formidable number three man.

These two have proven more than adequate replacements for Brooks Harris and Ham Gravem of last year's intercollegiate championship squad, and with Ben Heckscher playing in the fourth position he filled so capably last year, the top four is a very powerful aggregation. This, combined with the strength of the varsity double combinations, makes the Crimson definitely a team of championship caliber.
