PARIS, Monday. - America defeated France, il-1, in the international tennis matches. ïo-day's results were:
Harnes d. Plaa, 2-0, 0-4, 6-3, 6-1. Tilden d. Cochet, 6-3, 0-4, 0-2. Tilden and Marnes d. Cochet and Plaa, 6-2, 4-6, G-1, G-^i.
Despite the fact that he was aged forty, against Cochet's 32, Tilden repro duced his old form. He completely out played and outlasted the Frenchman, who failed to stand the strain of the terrific ally-fast first set. He double-faulted in tho eighth game, giving Tilden a 5-3 lead, the American clinching thc set with can non balls.
Cochet started vigorously in the second sot, and led 3-2, when he became unable to cope with the increased speed of Til den'» returns, and collapsed before thc cannon balls which the American reserved for vital moments. Tilden in tho third set had Cochet racing to tho baseline re trieving stinging drives until he was dis heartened.
Tilden won a wager of £00 from Cochet and Plaa on tho contest.
