    Background: Italy's Orlando Sirola beat Sweden's Ulf Schmidt 6-4, 6-2, 6-1, at Baastad, Sweden, July 31, to give Italy a 3-1 lead in the European Zone Davis Cup final. In the final match, with Italy's overall victory assured a young substitute, S.Tacchini was put in against Lundquist. He was beaten 6-2, 6-1, 6-1, in less an hour.

    Seven thousand people saw the Italian break Schmidt's service early in each set, and combine baseline strength with good tactical net rushes. Schmidt never found his touch, and double faulted eight times in the match.

    Italy will now meet the winners of the inter-zone tie between the Philippines (Eastern zone champions) and the undecided North American zone champions.
