1919 results

Summary by Andrew Tas

The first year of tennis on the European Continent after the Great War and Lenglen started to show her dominance that would continue into the mid twenties until she turned professional in 1926. With the Challenge Round still in play Lenglen advanced to the Challenge Round to meet seven times champion Lambert Chambers and won the match 10-8 4-6 9-7. Lenglen took a 4-1 lead in the final set, then Lambert Chamberts fought back to 6-5, with two match points at 40-15. A lucky wood shoot and a slashing backhand winner pulled Lenglen back to deuce and set won the last game to love. In the USA Wightman and Mallory dominated and Wightman won the USA Championships which were played just before Wimbledon. Marion Zinderstein (later Jessup) defeated Mallory in the semi-finals but lost 6-1 6-2 in the final.There were no official women rankings this year.

The continued impact of the Great War on tennis

This note from Newmark indicates the level of bitterness:

The British Lawn Tennis Association Council met on December 9, 1918, a month after the Armistice. "Lawn Tennis and Badminton" for April 24, 1919, carried a report on this meeting, part of which stated the following:

"The meeting unanimously passed the following resolutions:

1. That British players be excluded from taking part in any tournaments or competitions organised by our enemies, and held on enemy territory.
2. That all enemy players be prohibited from entering at any tournaments or competitions organised by our enemies.
3. That for the purposes of lawn tennis, the new Czechoslovak nation be regarded as Allies.
[...]" The main "enemies" referred to above were Germany, Austria and Hungary.

It would be many years before Germans in particular were allowed to compete in international events.

Re: 1919 results

February 24-March 2, Carlton Club, Cannes, France (Clay)
Venue: Carlton Club

Singles (Draw=4)

FI: Suzanne Lenglen d. Doris Wolfson 6-1 6-1

MX: Suzanne Lenglen/Max Decugis d. Doris Wolfson/Nicolae Mishu (Rom) 6-2 6-3

The SF in singles was the first round. Doris Wolfson's name sounds British but she is listed as from France in John Barrett's book Wimbledon. In addition Alan Little lists her as Mme Wolfson in his book on Lenglen, another indication her nationality may have been French.

From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", April 24, 1919:

"The Riviera season opened on February 24 with the meeting on the courts of the Carlton Club, which thus had the honour of holding the first open tournament on the Cote d'Azur since the cessation of hostilities."
