    Background: AUSTRALIA, HOLDERS OF THE DAVIS CUP, RETAINED THE TENNIS TROPHY WHEN THEY BEAT INDIAN OPPONENTS BY FOUR MATCHES TO ONE. ON MONDAY, WHEN THE SERIES BEGAN, THE AUSTRALIAN STARS EMERSON AND STOLLE GAVE THEIR COUNTRY A GOOD START WHEN THEY BOTH WON THEIR SINGLE MATCHES AGAINST MUKERJEA AND KRISHNAN.

    INDIA'S ONLY SUCCESS IN THE FINAL ROUND OF THE DAVIS CUP WAS IN THE DOUBLES MATCH. BUT ON MONDAY, BOTH MUKERJEA AND KRISHNAN WERE OUTPLAYED BY THEIR AUSTRALIAN OPPONENTS. EMERSON, AGAINST MUKERJEA, GAINED CONTROL OF THE MATCH IN THE LATTER PART OF THE FIRST SET AND NEVER LOOKED LIKE BEING BEATEN. HE WON 7-5, 6-4, 6-2.

    STOLLE, PLAYING POWERFUL TENNIS, OVERWHELMED KRISHNAN WHO APPEARED SLOW-MOVING AND UNCERTAIN. STOLLE WON 6-2, 6-3, 6-4.
