Klnsella. who is recognised as the leading prof«Asional in this branch of sport in the country. The contest between these two exponents of court tennis was one of the moat exciting witnessed in this country for many years, and the result proved anoverwhelming victory rpr Mr Oould,who defeated his opponent In three straight sets by the scores of 7—5. t—I.the world was demonstrated with his match against Klnsella. in view of the remarkable playing of the squash clubErofesslonal In England last year when e accompanied Joshua Crane throughEurope it was expected that the worlds amateur champion would be extendedto his limit to win. but after the fb*®t set in spite of the fact that he conceded odds of half fifteen for a bisque heoverwhelmed hi* opponent.His railroad service which had won him a number of victories in England was met by a master of the game and his ability to play the side ball for a boasted force to the dedans was nullified lythe remarkable ability of ids opponent.For the first time in his career Jay Gould was opposed to a competitor who played a gnmc similar to his own. and nls nervousness was apparent when the professional secured a lead which threatened to depose him from his title, in spite of the fact that he was conceding slight odds. It wras not until he hsd measured his opponent’s playing ability that he showed his true form.and from this point he demonstrated conclusively his right to the world samateur title by [ playing a superiorgrime and outmano*uverlng his professional opponent.When once in the lead, the result was not in doubt, and Jay Gould drew his opponent from the advantageous positions on the court and then drove theball In almost every conceivable position which prevented Klnsella from making any accurate returns.From a scientific standpoint. Jay Gould played perhaps the best game of his career. Ills shots for the tambour, grill, and dedans were made with deadly effect, while his direction for the winning openings were made with anaccuracy that was almost startling. Although he defeated his opponent in three straight sets, he frankly admitted after the contest that It was the. hardest garrifc of his career.
