    ON MAY 17, DENMARK ESTABLISHED A STRONG CLAIM TO CHALLENGE INDONESIA FOR THE THOMAS CUP IN THE SIXTH SERIES OF THE WORLD BADMINTON CHAMPIONSHIP WHEN THEY TOOK A FIRST-DAY LEAD OVER THAILAND IN THE INTER-ZONE FINAL AT THE TOKYO'S METROPOLITAN GYMNASIUM.

    THE DANES, SHOWING GREATER SKILL AND STAYING POWERS, LED 3-0 BEFORE THAILAND SCORED A POINT IN THE SECOND DOUBLES.

    DENMARK'S ERLAND KOPS AND CHANNARONG RATANA-SAENG SUANG OF THAILAND HAD A GREAT DUEL IN THE FIRST TWO SETS OF THE FIRST SINGLES MATCH. AFTER ERLAND KOPS LED 9-0 AND 10-1 IN THE FIRST SET, THE THAI CAUGHT UP TO 10-5, AND 13-11 BEFORE ERLAND KOPS CLINCHED THE SET.

    THE SECOND SET WAS LEVEL-PEGGING ALL THE WAY UP TO 12-12 AND IN A STRUGGLE CHANNARONG HELD ON TO WIN 15-13, BUT THE EFFORT DRAINED HIM AND ERLAND KOPS, AFTER TRAILING 1-4 IN THE RUBBER, REELED OFF THE NEXT 14 POINTS FOR VICTORY.

    KNUD NIELSEN AND CHAROEN WATTANASIN ALSO HAD A LONG AND EXHAUSTING TUSSLE, AND IN THE END IT WAS AGAIN SUPERIOR ENDURANCE AND STRENGTH WHICH TIPPED THE BALANCE IN FAVOUR OF DENMARK. THE SCORE WAS: 12-15, 15-12, 15-10.

    FOR FINN KOBBERO AND J.H. HANSEN, VICTORY OVER CHAVALERT CHUMKUM AND CHUCHART VATANATHAM AVENGED THE DEFEAT THEY HAD SUFFERED AT THE HANDS OF THE THAIS IN THE 1961 SERIES IN JAKARTA. THE DANES LED ALL THE WAY IN BOTH SETS AND THEIR STRONGER SMASHING PREVAILED IN THE THRILLING FINISH TO EACH SET. THE SCORE: 15-12, 15-11.

    IN THE SECOND DOUBLES, THE THAIS: NARONG BHORNCHIMA AND RAPHI KANCHANARAPHI BEAT THEIR DANISH OPPONENTS ERLAND KOPS AND P.E. NIELSEN 17-14, 18-14.
