    Background: Tennis, and Australia has won the right to meet Italy in the Davis Cup final to be held in Sydney, Australia, next December. This comes after taking a convincing three-one lead over Argentina in their semi-final at Buenos Aires. Tied at one match each, the turning point proved to be the long and see-sawing doubles match on Saturday (17 September).

    SYNOPSIS: Ricardo Cano serves to the big Australian, John Alexander, whose partner Phil Dent proves his worth with this return.....

    On this occasion, Cano proved too good.

    Cano serves again and the Australian side take the honours.

    Cano again...and the Australians force an error to go 2-1 up after a long match of see-sawing fortunes.

    The winning margin: 6-2, 4-6, 9-7, 4-6, 6-2.

    On Sunday, all eyes in Argentina were on Ricardo Cano, here serving to Phil Dent. Cano had to win but his young Australian rival had other ideas.

    Cano serves again and wins.

    However, Dent proved too strong, taking game, set and match for Australia to put his country in an unassailable position. The final score: Dent in straight sets: 6-4, 6-4, 6-3.
