    Background: INTRODUCTION: An Israeli Davis Cup tennis player became the first sportsman from his country to compete in Egypt on Wednesday (11 March). Chaim Arlosorov was defeated in the first round of the Egyptian Open Tennis championships 6-1, 6-0 by one of the world's top players, Guillermo Vilas. But after the game he said the result didn't matter. Just being there was more important. Three Israeli players were granted tourists visas from the Egyptian Embassy, but only Arlosorov qualified for the tournament.

    SYNOPSIS: Chaim Arlosorov served as net ball as the ace Argentine, Vilas waited to press his lightning speed attack. No Israeli flags flew among those of the other 25 competing countries.

    Vilas controlled the match throughout, conceding only one game to the Israeli, who managed to maintain some good rallies on Vilas's serves.

    With Arlosorov serving, Vilas draws him towards the net, then lobs one over his head.

    Although Vilas won the match, Arlosorov wasn't too disturbed.
