    Background: BRITAIN TOOK A 2-0 LEAD AGAINST NEW ZEALAND TODAY (THURSDAY) IN THE FIRST ROUND EUROPEAN ZONE DAVIS TENNIS CUP-TIE AT QUEEN'S CLUB, LONDON. ROGER TAYLOR (BRITAIN) BEAT BRIAN FAIRLIE (NZ) AND MIKE SANGSTER (BRITAIN) BEAT LEW GERRARD (NZ).

    SCORES WERE: (TAYLOR-FAIRLIE) 7-5, 8-6, 6-2; (SANGSTER-GERRARD) 6-4, 6-2, 6-2.

    THE TAYLOR-FAIRLIE MATCH LASTED ABOUT AN HOUR-AND-A HALF. FAIRLIE, WHO IS 17 AND PLAYING IN HIS FIRST DAVIS CUP EVENT, WON MANY OF HIS POINTS BY EXPLOITING THE WEAKNESSES OF TAYLOR'S BACKHAND. TAYLOR MADE EFFECTIVE USE OF BOTH LOBS AND DROPS SHOTS.

    SANGSTER PLAYED A STONEWALLING MATCH, KEEPING TO THE BACK OF THE COURT AND LETTING GERRARD DO THE ATTACKING. AFTER THE FIRST SET, IT WAS SANGSTER'S MATCH ALL THE WAY.
