PRO TENNIS HITS THE CANVAS

TRABERT SERVES TO GONZALES IN THE OPENING SET OF MADISON SQUARE GARDEN MATCH WHICH WAS PLAYED ON PROMOTER KRAMER'S PORTABLE COURT. CANVAS COURT IS HELD TAUT BY 20 PIECES OF BLOCK AND TACKLE
Rushing net, Trabert sets to return ball with the backhand volley that Kramer calls the finest he has ever seen. Tony won the first two sets but cooled off and lost match 3-2.
Hard-hitting Gonzales (left) serves while Trabert tensely rises on balls of his feet. Pancho (above) strains futilely for passing shot by Tony. (For more on the match see page 43.)

Calling to the bull, Dominguín begins a perilous pass called the gaonera
After killing the bull, he strides around the ring in response to wild ovation of the crowd
