Israel Wins Tennis Match over China

Download PDF for this date

Israeli players swept a match with the People’s Republic of China over the weekend, to secure Israel a place among the top 16 competitors in the international Davis Cup tournament.

But the 5-0 games victory at Ramat Hasharon stadium would have been more satisfying had the Israelis beaten a first-ranked Chinese team. The players sent by Beijing were admittedly “second string.”

The Chinese tried unsuccessfully to get their match with Israel postponed because their best players were engaged in the Asian Games matches.
