Sport: France v. U. S.

The deciding match of the international tennis exhibition series, last week at the Germantown Cricket Club, was between Jean Borotra-Jacques Brugnon of France and George M. Lott Jr. John Hennessey of the U. S. Borotra killed more U. S. lobs than he made errors; and that was the way the French pair won the match, 6-3, 3-6, 8-6, 6-4.

In the faster singles, Henri Cochet trounced Lott and Borotra was extended to defeat Hennessey.

Altogether, France took five matches, the U. S. four. William Tatem Tilden II, of course, did not play; and Rene Lacoste was far away in France.
