NotesNews: 23 April: Following the successful ping-pong tournament in China, an announcement stating that it had decided to sever relations with the International Lawn Tennis Federation was made. The letter from the All-China Sport Federation stated that it had withdrawn from the ILTF because "under the manipulation of United States imperialism the ILTF has openly accepted the so-called Tennis Association of Chiang Kai-shek as full members of the ILTF, therefore creating two Chinas". This conveyed the message that China would not take a seat in the UN, if it were offered to her while Formosa continued to sit there.
