'Bobs' Monopolie Four
Slots On 'Aet Squad

By DAVE GREY
The success of the Michigan
Varsity tennis team, according to
captain Al Mann, lies in the rel-
atively unheralded play of the
"fourBobs"-Bob Paley, Bob Ne-
derlander, Bob Mitchell, and Bob
Sassone.
Now in his third year on the
squad, Bob Paley has moved up
from number five man last year
to the important number three slot
this spring. Paley is the team's
hardest hitter, which tends to
make him inconsistent but his
good serve and overhead game
gained him the spot on the num-
her one doubles team with Pete
Paulus,
THE GLENCOE, Illinois, junior
won three out of his four singles
matches on the recent Southein
tour and took two out of four with
teammate Paulus.
Hailing from Detroit Central
High where he didn't take up the
game of tennis until his senior
year, Bob Nederlander was the
only Michigan man to bring
home a singles championship in
last year's Big Ten meet.
He has since moved up from the
sixth position to the fourth with
his main strength lying in con-
sistent, scrappy play. Nederlander

is at his best when the pressure is
on. Together with Al Mann he
forms a strong number two doubles
combination, which has won three
out of its four matches, losing only
to Tulane.
BOB MITCHELL, from Cincin-
nati, Ohio, is the most improved
man on this year's 'M' squad, and
is a welcome surprise to Coach Bill
Murphy as the number five play-
er.
Mitchell is almost exclusively
a base-line or back-court man
who uses an unorthodox, sweep-
ing motion in his shots that gives
the ball a great deal of top spin.
He has been victorious in all but
the Tulane match so far, and is
finally playing the consistent
game that he is capable of.
Last man of the "Bob quartet" is
Bob Sassone, who also attended
Detroit Central. In fact, he teamed
with Nederlander to win the City
high school doubles championship
in 1951.
He now plays third doubles with
Mitchell and in the sixth singles
slot. Only a sophomore, Sassone
is another hard working, competi-
tive base-liner. His play in the
Southern tour was particularly
encouraging, especially in a match

Barr was to have the leg op-

bring an end to the fleet back's

Under the supervision of Michi-
