Davis Cup tennis in Brisbane, 1967

Davis Cup tennis in Brisbane, 1967

Tennis was huge in Australia in the 1950s and 1960s, due in no small part to our Davis Cup success. Here at Brisbane's Milton courts, John Newcombe is just a couple of games away from victory against Spain's Manuel Orantes. Australia won the 1967 final by four rubbers to one.
