  • Description

    YUGOSLAVIA TODAY (SATURDAY) EVENED THE SCORE IN THE DAVIS CUP TIE AGAINST GREAT BRITAIN AT MANCHESTER WHEN PILIC DEFEATED BRITAIN'S MIKE SANGSTER IN FOUR SETS IN THE THIRD SINGLES.

    BRITAIN'S HOPES OF REACHING THE SEMI-FINALS OF THE EUROPEAN ZONE RESTED WITH BOB WILSON DUE TO MEET JOVANOVIC IN THE FINAL SINGLES OF THE FIVE RUBBER MATCH.

    BRITAIN'S HOPES SOARED WHEN SANGSTER AND WILSON YESTERDAY (JUNE 12) WON THE DOUBLES AGAINST JOVANOVIC AND PILIC IN FOUR SETS -- 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.

    THE VICTORY FOR BRITAIN IN THE DOUBLES WAS NOT AS EASY AS THE SCORE SUGGESTED, ALTHOUGH BOTH BRITISH PLAYERS WERE ON TOP FORM FOR THE VITAL RUBBER OF THE QUARTER FINAL TIE.

    PILIC, A STRONG LEFT HANDED, SERVED WITH POWER AND SEEMED TO DOMINATE HIS PARTNERSHIP. HOWEVER, SANGSTER AND WILSON WERE NOT DETERRED BY HIS POWER AND ALWAYS MOVED FIRMLY INTO THE ATTACK AND DOMINATED PLAY THROUGHOUT THE MATCH.

    THIS WAS SANGSTER AND WILSON'S SIXTH DAVIS CUP PARTNERSHIP FOR BRITAIN SINCE 1961 AND PROVED TO BE THEIR FOURTH VICTORY.
