Australia has a proud tennis history but no Australian has won the Australian Open singles title since Chris O'Neil in 1978. This National Film Board Australian Diary episode (No.43) looks back to happier times when Australia regained the Davis Cup in 1950. Back then the team played with Australian-made tennis racquets. These racquets were also exported around the world and were identifiable by unique markings and details.
