--------------------------

Summary:

Norsewoman Molla Bjurstedt set a record (for the time) of winning a final in only 25 minutes. Though the field was quite large, Mrs. May Sutton Bundy and Mary Browne were "particularly missed", as no challenger for Molla could be found. The Philadelphia Public Ledger describes her famous forehand shots as "wallops", also writing that "Miss Bjurstedt's driving constantly brought forth applause from the gallery."

Raymond's "stage fright" made the final a nightmare. Never once did it appear she would offer up a challenge. Mercifully it was over in 26 minutes. This is the shortest and most lopsided US ladies final in history aside from the 1964 final. Louise got to deuce only 3 times and won 24 points in all.

A drizzle kept spectators in the semis down to "a few dozen."

--------------------------
Draw notes:

Florence and Marie Henrietta Ballin were sisters. Both attended Bryn Mawr.
Emma Betz=Mrs John F Betz 3rd.
We have Augusta Chapman and Marion Chapman in doubles. Were they sisters-or sisters in-law?
Miss C Currie played for the West Side TC, New York. One paper calls her MM Currie, but apparently in error.
Katherine E Force
Pouch=Helena Hellwig. Listed in papers of era as Mrs W. H. Pouch. Her daughter was Miss Helen Pouch.
Ehel Herold listed as Mrs Robert Herold
Raymond=Louise Hammond. Listed in papers of era as Mrs Edward Raymond
Mrs Isaac Schluichter=Helen, nee Ehret.
May B Snyder is from Pittsburgh
Mrs David S Sterns in from New York.
Mrs Charles A Walbridge represented the Philadelphia Cricket Club
Susanne White is from Baltimore.
Teresa Wood listed by papers of the era as Mrs Rawson Wood

The New York Tribune (source for the first day) lists the Preliminary Round as the first round.

The quarterfinals of the mixed=the third round.

---------------------------------------
A "Patriotic" event was held as the US had recently entered World War One-known at the time as "The Great War". As this wasn't officially a USTA national title (this was disputed in later years) the defender Molla Bjurstedt "played through" rather than wait until the final by choice. The New York Times declared the event "for all purposes the National title". 1917 was unusual as there were two foreign entries. Molla was form Norway and Dahl from Denmark. Mary browne beat Molla sevreal times in 1917 in a series of exhibition matches, but unfortunately did not enter Philadelphia.

----------------------------------

Summary

The early days were devoted to winnowing down the field to see who would challenge Molla Bjurstedt. The Norse Queen of American tennis sat out and awaited whoever came though.

Marion Zinderstein kills any chance of winning vs Eleo Sears by double faulting 19 times in a 3 set defeat.

Pollak, hard hitter from Manhattan, came up short in the All-Comer's final. Her fast drives couldn't break down the defense of Goss in the final. The second set was nip and tuck though, with Pollak leading 5-3 and 40-30. She served an ace that brought up chalk. It was called a fault. Goss swept the last 4 games on Pollak's errors for a 6-2 7-5. The controversial incident clearly upset Helene.

Goss was not given good odds at at upset, but she was expected to at least give Molla a good pressing. Instead both finalists put on a pedestrian final devoid of thrills. Eleanor shunned advances to the net, her usual forte, and when she did advance she was either passed clean or botched the volley. Goss made 12 winners, but her 14 netted balls and 33 drives over the line did her in. Molla was steady only by contrast, her 16 winners not coming close to her 20 netted errors and 18 errors outside the lines.

Molla gets permanent possession of the Wisahickon Bowl for winning her third consecutive US National title. The 1917 event was not considered to count as it was dubbed a "National Patriotic" tournament.

In the doubles Goss and Zinderstain upset Sears and Wightman in an early round. The final sees them attack Anna Rogge at every chance and avoid Molla Bjurstedt. The weak link in Rogge's game is her driving. The Norse girls got ahead in the first set mainly due to the poor play of Zinderstein, who made 7 double faults. Once Marion steadied the ship the Americans were on top.

Summary:

Hazel Wightman does not defend in singles.

Mallory faced a stern test in the quarterfinals, overcoming Eleanor Tennant 6-2 2-6 6-3. It was the only set she dropped in singles all week. Almost even in errors-the Norsewoman made 38 winners to only 18 for Tennant. In the middle set Tennant awed the crowd with an assortment of net rushing, power, and dinks. She won one game on a drop shot that had so much slice it hit and bounced backwards back on her side.

This was the only time Tennant, a Californian, entered the US Nationals. She would go on to greater fame as a coach of Alice Marble and Maureen Connolly.

Zinderstein is literally smashing in the semifinals. It is her power of serve and volley that make the diffeence in her and Goss upsetting Mallory and Wightman in doubles. Her hard hitting and 4 aces forced Goss into too many errors in their semi, setting up a final vs Mallory, the woman he beat here a year ago.
Miss Zinderstein has wider assortment of shots than Mallory, leading some to expect an upset in the final. The first set was close until 3 all, then the Norsewoman ran off with 9 of the next 10 games as Zinderstein retreated to a passive baseline game.

Marion's overhead and volleys were of little help to her, for the she was frozen by nerves. The few times she did venture to net Zinderstein quickly retreated after being passed a couple times.

Marion Zinderstein is a protegee of Hazel Wightman. Some cynics contend she trained Marion as a way to bring down old rival Molla Mallory.

New York Times Box score

Mallory---------07 nets---14 outs---15 placements---0 aces---2 double faults---23 errors---15 winners---57 points won
Zinderstein-----16 nets---20 outs---15 placements---1 aces---6 double faults---42 errors---15 winners---38 points won

The doubles final compensated for any lack of thrills in the singles. Zinderstein was still off form. Her partner Eleanor Goss lit up the court with overheads as the pair smothered the net. The Californians countered with defense and chops. Baker was the steadier of the two and at times went to net. The first set went to Goss/Zinderstein at 13-11.They dropped the second through errors, mainly on Marion's part. In the last last 7 of 9 games were breaks of serve. The last game went to deuce 3 times with 'the gallery in a state of suspense' before Goss and Zinderstain won.

The club, with 20 courts, is well equipped to handle a big tournament.

Summary:

Mallory shows her mettle from the start with a double bagel win in round one that took all of 17 minutes. She is seeded first-the first seeding ever in a US women's title. Last year's fiasco with Lenglen and Mallory meeting in the 2nd rd. has convinced the USTA that seeding is the way to go.

A young sensation has arisen from the West to challenge Molla. Helen Wills wears her schoolgirl uniform to the court, but she is more apt to play the role of teacher than student. Even at 16 she posseses a better serve and net play than all entries. Only Molla is her superior off the ground. Helen whipped through the draw until she met Jessup in the quarters. Marion's serve and volleys won her a set before Wills barely pulled out the second. Helen's power took the third easily. Against 35 yr. old May Bundy in the semis Helen resorted to drop shots with telling effect, "though she was rather prone to overwork it."

Helen tried off-pace tactics in the final. The change of pace didn't faze Molla a bit, as the Norse star ran Wills off the court in a 6-3 6-1 final witnessed by only 2,500. The lack of foreign entries kept many a fan away.

"Marvelous Molla" still reigns, but the doubles final went the way of youth, as Wills and Jessup upset Mallory and Sigourney. The youngsters blew two match points to lose the middle set 9-7. After the usual 10 minute break Mallory and Sigourney shot out to a 3-0 lead, but Marion Jessup willed her team back to take 6 games and the title 6-3.

Summary:

The cast was especially amazing this year. The participation of many old, present and future champions of the age gave this edition extra panache. Champions of 20 years ago (May Sutton Bundy, Eleanora Sears), a decade earlier (Mary Browne, Elizabeth Ryan) joined the likes of Molla Mallory and Helen Wills in the field. The participation of the English Wightman Cup team (here before in 1923) gave Forest Hills an international flavor lacking in 1922. With all that future champion Helen Jacobs, making her debut here, went largely unnoticed.

Wills takes permanent possession of the cup with her 3rd US nationals in a row before a Monday finals crowd of 7,000. With her win over Kitty McKane in the finals Helen establishes a clear lead of 4-2 in their rivalry. After losing the first set Helen's shots only increased in pace as her foe tired, a pattern that followed the semis where Wills "raked her opponent's court with blistering shots".

The match that "enthralled " all was the semi tussle between Mallory and McKane. "Marvelous Molla" was 2 points from a win at 5-3 when Kitty clawed back by taking the net. At 5-4 Molla was 6 times within two points of victory, only to see Kitty's volleys repeatedly dig her out of trouble. McKane got the game winning point to tie at 5-5 when Molla's passing shot clipped the net and bounced back. When it ended the pair got the biggest ovation of the week that even had the loser smiling as she left thew court.

McKane had upset Elizabeth Ryan in the quarters. Ryan was an American expatriate who lived in England and was entered in her own championships for the first time ever. She was a co-favorite coming in, having upset Helen Wills at Seabrigh


Thanks to Hugues Daniels for pointing out how strong the draw was this year.

--------------------------------------
Notes: There was seeding. It was the 1921 Lenglen disaster that introduced the concept. Ryan-Mallory at 1-2 (or reverse), with Browne, Goss at 3-4. Anderson and Bayard were tough.
----------------------------------------------
Some of these women were around a long time. Eleanor Sears was around in the "aughts" and Barger-Wallach was the 1908 champ! Wightman was the 1909-12,19 winner.Browne 1912-14.

A poor entry. Helen Wills was still recovering form her appendicitis operation of June. The British were absent as the Wightman Cup was played in Britain. There were no foreigners entered. Ironically,Molla was considered more American than Ryan, due to Ryan's living abroad. Fans cheered the Norsewoman mightily as she batterd her way to one last Us title-a record 8th.

Summary: [Thanks to Newmark for what follows below]

From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1928):

"A real American summer day favoured the final and attracted thousands to the stadium at Forest Hills. In exactly twelve minutes Miss Wills had carried the first set from one against Miss Nuthall. The relentless pressure applied by the American, coupled with her withering speed, was was too violent for the English girl's defence. She won her solitary game from 15-40 down when Miss Wills led 5-0.

"Having placed the first set to her credit, Miss Wills advanced to 4-1 in the second, having lost the second game on her service. But the cumulative speed involved by the pace of her drives was beginning to tell on the Californian, and in each rally the English girl was recovering her driving accuracy and tactical control. She was luring a tiring opponent forward at the end of exhausting rallies, a ruse which quickly reduced the lead to 4-3. Miss Wills took the eighth game to love, mainly by her opponent's errors. She lost the ninth, but, serving confidently in the tenth game, reached 40-15. Miss Nuthall kept her head in the two searching rallies which preceded this, but a lob by the English girl just outside the baseline gave Miss Wills the championship for the fourth time.

"Commenting on the final in the 'Daily Telegraph', Mr Wallis Myers wrote: 'Only for a brief period in the second set had the victory of the Wimbledon winner been in question. In service, in cross-driving, and in sustained accuracy she was superior to her young rival. But she betrayed in this match, as before, a tendency to loosen her control under astute tactical manoeuvring. Unfortunately for the British chances, Miss Nuthall did not reconcile herself to the unfamiliar pace until an almost irreducilbe lead had been built up. In facing her heavy task she delighted the throng with many beautiful shots, and above all, by her smiling ardour, her perseverance, and her perfectly composed demeanour under bombardment."

_______________________________
Notes:
A good field with 5 top notch Brits because of the
Wightman Cup.
May Sutton was US champ in 1904! This is her last US
Nationals at age 42. Surely one of the oldest seeds.
Shepherd-Baron is the only foreign entry unseeded. She
was considered a doubles specialist.
9,000 saw the finals.

Summary

Betty Nuthall becomes the first foreigner to win the US title for women. Though Cahill (Ireland) and Mallory (Norway) might also be considered foreign they were living in the US at the time they won their titles. A slim gathering of 4,000 watched the finals. Crowds were down noticeably as Helen Wills opted not to defend her title and Helen Jacobs was absent because of a year-long illness. Molla Mallory is now retired and not entered for the first itme since 1915. There is no first class American female standing between Nuthall and her only slam. The field is so weak that none of the 57 seeds was seeded at all at Wimbledon.

Nuthall's toughest match came in the semis, where she blew two set points in dropping the opener and was down 2-4 in the second. At that point Morrill " lost all coordination", and Nuthall never looked back.

The Baroness "who chops almost every ball she hits, including her service", provided some flair this year's event sorely lacked.

The Mixed doubles was held the next week at Longwood with the US men's doubles.
