The Sydney Morning Herald

At 11 o'clock to-day the intercolonial lawn tennis match between New South Wales and Victoria, commences at the Association Cricket Ground, Moore Park, and a very exciting contest is expected, both teams being in good form. The play of the Victorians has been much admired by the spectators who have been looking on during the last two days. Some very good courts have been prepared, and the arrangements for the comfort of visitors have been sedulously looked after by the committee. Luncheon will be obtainable on the ground. Play every day will cease about 4.30. Mr. J. Bruce Ismay, of the Northern Lawn Tennis Association, England, has kindly consented to act as referee during the match.
