USA won the Dubler Cup, men’s 45, in dramatic fashion against top-seeded France. Oren Motevassel won the critical #2 singles point in three sets. Jeff Tarango fell to the French #1 in straight sets. That left it to the doubles, late in the day to decide the Cup. Art Hernandez and Mario Tabares took the court for the doubles and dropped the first set 76, battled back to win the second and then fought hard to win the third 64, urged on by the cheers of the Margaret Court Cup team.
USA dropped the singles against Australia in the Austria Cup and against France in the Bueno Cup.
USA finished fourth in the Young and Perry Cups.
Below, Brad Sprayberry captured the winning moment; Mario Tabares, fist raised, Art Hernandez pure joy.
