There was a lot of trouble with the American team that went to Australia in 1946 to recapture the Davis Cup. Tom Brown was one of the members of that team. The non-playing captain was Walter Pate and he wanted the players to vote who would actually play the singles and doubles. In 1985 Brown was interviewed in the book 'Once a champion' by Stan Hart about the vote.He could not remember that there was a vote. Now, in his own memoir, more than twenty years later, he remembered exactly what happened...Strange.
But I like what I read, because it gives you an idea what it was: the game by gentlemen in the forgotten days of tennis. It is good that he wrote the book.
But in the end I enjoyed reading it, getting to know Tom and the era of his most competitive tennis.
