    The players seen are, for Englad, H. W. "Bunny" Austin, against the German Dr Heinz Landmann.

    Then at the end of the clip we see Harry Lee of England and Daniel Prenn of Germany spinning the racket to see who serves first in their match.

    This is really helpful. Thank you.

    Often these descriptions miss off things on the title cards (such as the names of the players) because they were viewed with a time code that obscured the bottom part of the frame.
