  • Description

    ANOTHER TENNIS TRIUMPH FOR MARGARET SMITH. IN ROME YESTERDAY (MONDAY), SHE CRUSHED FELLOW-AUSTRALIAN LESLEY TURNER 6-1, 6-1 TO WIN THE ITALIAN SINGLES FINAL.

    IT TOOK THE POWERFULLY-BUILT AUSTRALIAN GIRL JUST 37 MINUTES TO CLINCH HER THIRD SUCCESSIVE ITALIAN TITLE, THE FIRST TIME ANY PLAYER HAS DONE IT.

    A DULL FINAL, ACCORDING TO THE CRITICS, AS MISS TURNER DID NOT PLAY WELL ENOUGH TO MAKE HER DOMINATING RIVAL PULL OUT ANYTHING SPECIAL TO WIN. MISS SMITH, AN OUTSTANDING VOLLEYER, WON ALMOST ENTIRELY FROM THE BACK OF THE COURT.

    IN FACT, IT WAS HER EASIEST WIN OF THE MEETING. ALL TOLD, MISS SMITH DIDN'T CONCEDE A SET IN THE WHOLE TIE. NOW SHE GOES TO PARIS A FIRM FAVOURITE TO TAKE THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS WINNING, FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE FOUR MAJOR WORLD TITLES.
