    TENNIS -- AND IT'S TO BE YET ANOTHER DUEL BETWEEN THE AMERICANS AND THE AUSTRALIANS IN THIS YEAR'S DAVIS CUP CHALLENGE AROUND.

    AUSTRALIA QUALIFIED TODAY (SUNDAY) FOR THE "FINAL," TAKING A WINNING THREE-NIL LEAD OVER SWEDEN IN THE INTER-ZONE FINAL AT BAASTAD, IN SOUTHERN SWEDEN.

    ROY EMERSON AND FED STOLLE CLINCHED THE TIE WITH A LIGHTNING DOUBLES VICTORY OVER JAN-ERIK LUNDQUIST AND ULF SCHMIDT. THE SCORE: 6-2, 6-1, 6-0.

    THE AUSTRALIANS SWEPT THROUGH THE THREE SETS FOR THE EASIEST OF VICTORIES. THE SWEDES SHOWED ONLY A FEW MOMENTS OF TOP-CLASS TENNIS (AS THE FILM SHOWS).

    EMERSON AND STOLLE COMBINED BRILLIANTLY. THEY WERE A LATE CHOICE FOR THE DOUBLES -- ORIGINALLY, TONY ROCHE AND JOHN NEWCOMBE WERE TO PLAY.

    DESPITE DRIZZLE WHICH BEGAN TO FALL HALF-WAY THROUGH THE MATCH, THE AUSTRALIANS REACHED MATCH-POINT WITHIN 44 MINUTES. A DRIVE FROM LUNDQUIST FELL JUST OUTSIDE THE SIDELINE -- AND THE MATCH WAS ALL OVER.

    AUSTRALIA WILL CHALLENGE AMERICA AT CLEVELAND, OHIO, NEXT MONTH.
