  • Description

    Stan Smith's victory in the Davis Cup Tennis finals in Rumania on Friday (October 13) was against an unimpressive Ilie Nastase, whom he also best in the Wimbledon finals this year (1972). Nastase ??? was later accused by the captain of the American Davis Cup team of bad on-court behaviour 'which was a disgrace to tennis'.

    Smith, who made some protests about lien calls during this match, took the United States into a one-nil lead in the finals, but the two teams drew level when Rumania's Ion Tiriac beat Tom Gorman.

    Smith's score against Nastace: 11-9, 6-2, 6-3.
