Wood was not to be considered for
the 1932 team.
Recently George Martin Lott,
Jr., theoretically seconded Mr.
Brady's motion for the muscling
out of Mr. Wood from the select
international group by announcing,
"I'm going in for singles." George
declared he believed he could equal
or possibly better Ellsworth Vines,
the National champion, at the sin
gles game by zealous application.
Where this left Wood, with
Francis X. Shields and John Van
Ryn and several others to be con
sidered, is outside looking in. Yet
as knowing a critic as Vincent
Richards recently declared that
Sidneh's possession of what . he
called "the tennis touch" makes the
New York boy the obvious main
stay of the 1932 Davis Cup team.
Furthermore the affable Vinnie
added that he expected Champion
Vines to prove a big disappoint
ment in his first European in
vasion. "It is always that way the
first time," Richards explained,
"Climate conditions are different
and the atmosphere affects the ball
so that it is an art to hit with ter
The national meeting convens
on Saturday, Feb. 6, and the ques
tion of Wood's f itnes3 will be then
decided. But you can depend on it
that no matter how the bosses of
amateur tennis rank the Davis Cup
team a howl will go up. Every fol
lower of the net game has his own
precise notion of just how every
player should be ranked and when
the officials rule otherwise the fan
is loud in his laments.
Incidentally Vinnie Richards
thinks that Fred Perry and Buddy
Austin of the English team have a
great chance to carry off the treas
