CR: Dorothea Lambert Chambers d. Ethel Larcombe (holder), default
The long-awaited showdown between Ethel Larcombe and Dorothea Lambert Chambers doesn't occur. Ethel, the defending champion, was injured in a freak accident the day before the Challenge Round. While playing the mixed doubles final, she was hit in the side of the face by her partner, the Irishman James C. Parke, who had smashed the ball from behind her. As the Challenge Round was scheduled for the next day she was forced to default. When Ethel won in 1912 many felt it was because Dorothea was absent. However, Ethel had won an encounter with Dorothea just weeks before the 1913 Wimbledon.
Dorothea Lambert Chambers isn't pushed by any of her opponents, winning 5 matches for the loss of only 17 games. This is her sixth Wimbledon singles title in eleven years.
The women's doubles final is also marred by injury. Charlotte Sterry tore a tendon in her leg and had to retire when she and her partner, Dorothea Lambert Chambers, were just five points from victory at 6-4, 4-2, 40-15. The beneficiaries were Dora Boothby and Winifred McNair.
The decision of the International Tennis Federation to grant Wimbledon the title of "World Championships on Grass" prompted the All England Club to give the women's doubles and the mixed doubles events full championship status. A women's doubles event without official status had been held at Wimbledon in the years 1900-07, while a mixed doubles event without official status had been played at Wimbledon from 1900 to 1912.
Hudleston is the married name of the Scottish player Alice Ferguson. Colston is the married name of the English player Blanche Duddell.
