Laver polished off the potential
United States Davis Cupper with a
flntlity that left little doubt Amer-
ica's effort to regain the coveted
saucer is going to be a rather
rough task.
Laver, a southpaw who is rated
the equal of Australia's 1959 Davis
Cup hero, started as if he meant
to duplicate the 37-minute wom-
en's final.
Miss Arnold, fifth-seeded, dis-
played the same all-out aggres-
sive play that characterized her
semifinal triumph Sunday ,over
Seattle's second - seeded Janet
Hopps. She upset the usually com-
posed Mrs. DuPont, a three-time
national champion, with a series
of powerful passing shots and
tricky drop ball tactics.
Mrs. DuPont experienced great
difficulty with her first serve and
relied upon her second ef'ort, a
spinning ball that Miss Arnold had
little trouble coping with. Miss Ar-
nold, ninth-ranking United States
player, broke Mrs. DuPont's serv-
ice three times in each set.
