FI: Mrs E.F. Wilkinson d. Mary Welsh 6-3 3-6 6-2

“The second Easter hard court tournament at Scarborough was an unqualified success, the entry showing a great increase in numbers over the preceding year; this being so, it was extremely fortunate that the players and executive alike were favoured with the most delightful weather imaginable [...]

“The ladies’ singles created a surprise, for few people expected that Mrs Mary Welsh, the holder, would be seriously extended. Not only was she extended, but in the final round she was beaten by Mrs E.F. Wilkinson of Northamptonshire. The winner closely approximates to a one-shot player, that shot being a forehand drive, but when she can bring the stroke into action she is difficult to beat, for this shot is forceful in the extreme.

“Mrs Welsh found the surface of the court uncongenial for her undercut service, which keeps so low on the clinging grass surface and skids so uncannily on wood. The rubble surface had the effect of slowing down the ball at the pitch and inviting a punch—and Mrs Wilkinson punched. From the point of view of tactics, Mrs Welsh was by far the better player, but she seemed unable to get enough pace on her shots to attack Mrs Wilkinson's backhand, with the result that the flow of hard drives was sufficient to secure a victory for the less fancied player in a three set match.”

MX: Beryl Tulloch/George Watt d. Dorothy Holman/Stanley Doust (Aus) 6-4 6-3

"The record entry received for this year's tournament must have been extremely gratifying to the committee, who had paid special attention to the improvement of the surface of the courts. They had also engaged the services of a professional referee for the first time"

"... Mrs. Edgington and Miss Holman played a most uninteresting—from the spectacular point of view—base-line duel of long duration, in which Miss Holman occasionally relieved the monotony with an advance to the net. Miss Holman ought to have won this encounter as she held the commanding lead of four games to one in the third set. The mixed, which followed on immediately, ended in a not altogether surprising victory for the Queen's Club pair—Watt and Miss Tulloch—who played particularly well, but were undoubtedly helped by Miss Holman's state of exhaustion after her singles final. Watt showed himself to be an excellent exponent of the mixed game, and Miss Tulloch drove with great ferocity. "

"The expected really happened in the ladies' doubles, where Mrs. Luard and Mrs. Carruthers were too strong for the opposition. The final of the ladies' singles was marred by the fact that Mrs. Adamsom fell and twisted her ankle at 5 all in the final set; she pluckily continued but was eventually beaten by Miss R. Aighton at 8/10 in a game which was rather overcautious."

Re: 1914 results

Week of April 27-May 3

April 27-May 2, Southsea Hard Court Tournament, Hampshire, England (Clay)
Venue: Southsea Hard Courts

FI: Lavinia Radeglia d. Madeline O'Neill 8-10 17-15 2-0 retired

MX: Madeline O'Neill/George Watt d. Beatrice Lee/George Thomas 6-3 6-4

From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", May 14, 1914: "The first spring tournament held on the Southsea Hard Courts was a great success in every way. The entries were good in class and sufficient in number to allow for a week's play without unduly overworking the competitors, while the weather, except for one afternoon, was almost perfect. [...]

"As far as we can judge a record for length was set up, so far as ladies are concerned, when Miss Lavinia Radeglia beat Mrs Madeline O'Neill by the score of 8-10, 17-15 in the first two sets; Miss Radeglia was leading 2-0 in the third set when Mrs O'Neill retired. This was hardly surprising; it would have astonished no one if one of the ladies had done so earlier in the proceedings. The match took three-and-a-half hours to play (another record, we should think), but apart from its closeness, it was not very exhilirating to watch. Still, as a feat of endurance and steadiness both ladies are to be complimented on their record-smashing performance."

FI: Doris Craddock/Stanley Doust (Aus) d. Phyllis Satterthwaite/A.W. Myers 4-6 6-4 6-4

"The first hard court tournament held by the Norwood Club was successful enough to prove that the fixture will be a very popular one. Though the entry was not large [...], it was an excellent one, from the "class" point of view, and better contests have not been seen during the hard court season. [...]

In the ladies' singles Mrs. Satterthwaite wore down Mrs. Craddock in the semi-final, her steadiness proving too effectual for the latter's hard hitting , and Mrs. Edgington qualified to meet her by defeating Mrs. Marriott after a good match, in which the second set ran to 14 games. The final was fairly protracted, and it was chiefly due to Mrs. Edgington's superior placing that she emerged the winner after two close sets."

Draw notes:

Mrs Marriott from this time period is usually identified as Cecily Marriott. The issue? She was married in 1916. Could the date be wrong-or is this a different Mrs Mariott?

"There was only one day (Thursday) at which play at this meeting was interfered with by rain to any appreciable extent; on the other hand there was only one day on which it was not inconveniently blowy. Consequently the decision of the executive to play most of the matches on the six newer and more sheltered courts was probably a wise one, although their surface was by no means as firm as the four old courts, on which the first meeting was held last year. [...]

Miss Holman showed that she had regained the confidence lost to some extent at Tulse Hill by a convincing win in the ladies' singles. She was at her best all through and did not lose a set, though Miss Morton ran her to games-all in the first set of the final, in which both ladies were playing very well and skilfully. Miss Morton lost a set in the semi-final to Mrs. Edgington, who had in the previous round survived an encounter consisting mainly of a series of interminable long rallies with Mrs. Satterthwaite. Something which will speed up the play in ladies' singles seems to be imperatively demanded.[...]

After being nearly caught napping in the first round by the Guildford pair, Capt. Moss and Mrs. Mitchell, who won the first set and led at one time in the second, Doust and Miss Morton gained a hardearned win in the mixed doubles. They had very little to spare against Thomas and Miss Spofforth and nothing at all against either Watt and Miss Tulloch (who, it may be remembered were winners last year, beating Dixon and Mrs. Sterry in the final), or Dixon and Mrs. O'Neill.[...]

The form shown by the Guildford pair, Mrs. Mitchell and Miss Hill, in the ladies' doubles, created a pleasing diversion from the ordinary course of events, and incidentally illustrated the value in a ladies' double of practice together by two partners, one of whom can volley. As a singles player, Miss Hill, though quite a good volleyer, is still one of the thirty contingent; but she and Mrs. Mitchell, who thoroughly understands the art of making openings, not only made mincemeat of of the comparatively soft returns of Mrs. O'Neill and Mrs. Colston, but gave Miss Holman and Mrs. Edgington about as much as they could do to beat them in the final."

"This, the first open tournament held on the six courts of the Roehampton Club, was brought to a successful conclusion on Saturday last."

"The ladies singles' fell to Miss Holman, but only after a tremendous fight with Miss Tulloch in the final, the latter lady being deadly on the drive; Miss Holman played not only well but with more aggression than she has often displayed. On their way to the final both ladies had some close matches; Miss Holman, for instance, nearly lost the first set to Mrs. Edgington, as she was led at 4/1 and 5/3, but eventually ran out at 7/5 and took the second at the same score. Miss Tulloch had the worse half of the draw in that she had to meet, in earlier rounds, both Mrs. Parton and Mrs. Morton; of these two matches that with Mrs. Parton was not only the closer but the better, though after set all had been called Mrs. Parton palpably tired. Miss Tulloch always had the better of Miss Morton, who did not seem happy on the hard courts."

Suzanne Lenglen/Max Decugis d. Suzanne Amblard/Maurice Germot 6-4 6-1


Draw Notes:

Katie Fenwick falls ill in the semis of the singles and retires. Afterwards Mme Fenwick defaults in the doubles and mixed.
Felix Poulin=A. F. Poulin.

In the 1R of the mixed I used Le Figaro for the source of the 7-5 6-1 score. Alan Little had 7-5 6-3. Since Little was also incorrect about the overall dates as well I trust Le Figaro as the primary source.

For the World Hard Court Championships of 1914 please see World Hard Court Championships



Le Figaro.Figaro : journal non politique | 1914-05-20 | Gallica

At the age of merely 14 the sensational Suzanne Lenglen almost wins her nations title. She gives Broquedis a stern test in the final. Amazingly this will be Suzanne's last defeat until 1921, when she defaults in the US Nationals. In the doubles final the twin Amblard sisters, twins, retain their title.

The defending champion was at turns brilliant and awful in the Chsllenge Round, contested on the 23rd of May. She threw in seven doulbe faults for example. Young Suzanne played a tactical game extraordinary for one so young. She was also calm throughout the match. Marguerite got stronger as the match wore on, with the teen Suzanne showing signs of fatigue in the final set.

Throughout the event the youngster amazed onlookers with an assortment of lobs and volleys.

"Five baking hot days and one terribly wet one was the weather history for the first grass court tournament of the season. Unfortunately the wet one was Saturday and the finals were played under most unpleasant conditions. Enormous interest was taken in the tournament [...] and by Friday night the whole gate of last year had been exceeded. [...] Since last year the courts have all been turned round so as to run north and south, and this was certainly a great improvement. A new large stand has been erected on what used to be Court 4, and additional stands surrounded the two gallery courts on three sides, so that spectators got a far better view of the big matches than ever before. A glance at the names in the level events in the scores that will appear below will show that the entry was a really magnificent one, certainly the best Surbiton has ever enjoyed, and in mere numbers it exceeded last year's by about thirty matches.[...]

Neither Mrs. Larcombe or Mrs. Lambert Chambers had any difficulty in coming through to the final of the ladies' singles; but both Miss Douglass and Miss Palmer played well against the former. They defeated, respectively, in the semi-final, Mrs. Satterthwaite and Mrs. Edgington with the utmost facility. The final was a good match, and would have been a better one under the weather conditions of the rest of the week—the rain largely spoilt it, but the lady champion just got the best of the encounter, though she was only one game up at the finish.[...]

Mrs. Tuckey and Miss Aitchison won the ladies' doubles, and deserved to, for they both played very well, especially in the final against Mrs. Sterry and Mrs. Chambers. They were lucky, however, to get through the previous round against Mrs. Larcombe and Miss Longhurst, who won the first set easily and were 4/1 in the second, when the heat became obviously too much for Miss Longhurst, who went completely off her game and could hardly hit the ball over the net for the rest of the match."

"Mrs. Larcombe and Mrs. Hannam fought their annual battle at Malvern for the third time, Mrs. Hannam having won in 1912, and Mrs. Larcombe (after twice being within a point of defeat) in 1913. On the present occasion Mrs. Hannam began with great confidence and soon reached 3/1. Mrs. Larcombe was 0/30 in the next game, but she saved and won it, and thereafter never looked like being beaten. Indeed, she only lost two more games in the match. She played almost entirely from the base-line. Mrs. Hannam's forehand drive was not in good trim, but she has certainly improved her backhand shot since last year, and Mrs. Larcombe gave her every opportunity of further practice at it. The loser had a little the worse of the luck, but Mrs. Larcombe was really playing much too well for her."

Lenglen wins the world's second most important championship at the age of 15. "She was given a hard fight by Suzanne Amblard in the semifinal but her superior steadyness and volleying ability tipped the balance." In the final Golding tried to win with her lethal forehand 'but she usually faltered after" 3 or 4 shots.

It was hoped the prodigy would enter Wimbledon. Her father decided against it due to her age and lack of grass court play, for she had never entered a grass event. Within weeks World War One(the "Great War" at that time) had started. Suzanne would have to wait until 1919 to claim world supremacy.

The losing doubles finalists were twin sisters.

"The ladies' singles proved a veritable triumph for Mrs. Lambert Chambers. Never, except, perhaps, occasionally at Wimbledon, has she been seen to such advantage. She successfully defeated Miss Manser, Mrs. Larcombe, Mrs. Parton, and Miss Morton without losing more than four games in a set. It seemed almost impossible for her to hit the ball out, while at the same time she was hitting the ball as hard as she has ever done and keeping a wonderful length. It was bad luck for Mrs. Larcombe to meet her in the second round, especially as it was Mrs. Larcombe's third year for the cup.

The All England Mixed Doubles Championships was again won by the holders, Parke and Mrs. Larcombe, who thus became the owners of the much-coveted cups which have been in existence since 1897. Doust and Miss Morton had done well in beating Mavrogordato and Mrs. Parton in the semi-final and Brookes and Mrs. Chambers in the final, but never got going in the Challenge Round at all. Parke and Mrs. Larcombe took up an impregnable position at the net, and all the efforts of their opponents to dislodge them were in vain.

The open ladies' doubles fell to Mrs. Chambers and Mrs. Larcombe, a partnership impossible to defeat by any of the pairs competing. Miss Morton and Miss Manser did well to take a set from them, but never looked like winning the match."

"A largely increased entry was received for this meeting this year, and in consequence the three days allotted to it were found to be insufficient, and short sets had to be played in the handicap events. Play, too, had to commence early on the Saturday morning, and by these means every event, with the exception of the men's open doubles, was brought to a definite conclusion.[...]

The surprise of the meeting was the defeat, in the ladies' singles, of Miss L. Jackson by Miss L. Wilkinson. This was Miss Wilkinson's first tournament this year, and she showed a vast improvement over her form of the past two seasons."

The New York Times

Spaldings Lawn Tennis Annual 1915 (Thanks to Andrew Tas0
Wright and Ditson Annual 1915 (pages 57-60)



Mary K Browne is at the apex of women's US tennis for the third year-taking the "Triple" (singles, doubles, and mixed) just as she did in 1912 and 1913. Perhaps it should be labelled the triple-triple!

Browne dropped the middle set in the Challenge Round vs Marie Wagner. On either side of the 2nd chapter she totally dominated. Seemingly on track for an easy victory after a 6-1 lead, "the champions game went to pieces", according to the New York Times. After the rest break Browne quickly reasserted herself to sweep to victory.

The Times relates that Mary won the ladies doubles with her "sister" Mrs Robert Williams. This is almost certainly an error, as no other source even hints at a family connection. Mrs Williams was Louise Hammond by birth.

"Mrs. Hannam, like Parke, making a first appearance at Beckenham, had much more reason to be glad of her visit. She won the ladies' cup; but she lost two sets in doing so. One of these was to Miss Ryan in the semi-final, the other was to Miss Morton in the final. Mrs. Hannam was very variable—at times she was quite good. She was within a point of being beaten in the final, but when she had saved and won the second set, Miss Morton retired in view of her other engagements in doubles."

"Miss Tulloch may be considered to have been the bright particular "star" of the meeting, having been successful in all three open events. In the final of the ladies' singles she triumphed over Mrs. Satterthwaite in a hardly contested three-set match. Her drive was engrossing her attention to the neglect of all else, and although this is an unwise course to pursue unless she is absolutely "on" her game, on this occasion, and indeed in the three finals she took part, she could do no wrong with it. At one period in the third set of her single the scores stood at 4/3 against her, but she won the match by six games to four. In partnership with C.W. Murray she won the mixed doubles, defeating F.G. Lowe and Mrs. Satterthwaite in the final round. it was a well deserved victory, their passage to the final having been a very stormy one. It included a three-set contest against C. Scott and Mrs. Pearse, and a desperately hard fought match against G.T.C. Watt and Mrs. O'Neill. Mrs. O'Neill was not in her best form in this match, and was unable to give her partner the usual assistance.[...]

Mrs. E.G. Johnson, in partnership with Miss Tulloch, won the ladies' doubles, defeating Miss Lane and Mrs. O'Neill in the final. Miss Lane was not in form and she and her partner had had a hard three-set match against Mrs. Satterthwaite and Mrs. Pearse before entering the final."

FI: Ethel Larcombe d. Beryl Tulloch 6-1 6-2

MX: Ethel Larcombe/Arthur Dunlop (Aus) d. Beryl Tulloch/George Watt 6-2 6-0

"The ladies' singles was almost a foregone conclusion for, except in the first set against Miss Holman, Mrs. Larcombe was never seriously extended. Miss Tulloch was driving her hardest against Mrs. Edgington and did well to reach the final without the loss of a set; against Mrs. Larcombe she played as though she felt the strain of previous exertions.[...]

Any mixed doubles pair who during the tournament had the misfortune to meet Dunlop and Mrs. Larcombe, found themselves up against an impenetrable brick-wall of apparently infinite height. The entry for the mixed double event was, on the whole, a poor one, no pair being able to cope with the winners who would be quite equal to tackling a strong pair in a men's double."

MX: Madeline O'Neill/Dixon d. Edith Hannam/Henry Yolland 7-5 6-4

"In the ladies' singles Mrs. Hannam retained her cup, but Miss Aitchison put up a fine fight against her in the final. Both ladies were hitting freely, but Mrs. Hannam had a slight advantage in the matter of severity, and also in service. The miss-bounds (of which there were a good many) also affected her equanimity less than her adversary's. Mrs. Satterthwaite and Mrs. O'Neill did about equally well against Mrs. Hannam, but she was not as fully extended by either of them as she was by Miss Aitchison."

FI: Miss E. Pickersgill/C. Pickersgill d. Kathleen Aitchison/E Sutton 6-3 6-4

"A record entry, the programme containing nearly sixty more matches than last year's.[...]

Miss K.B. Aitchison did not lose a set in defending her cup successfully in the ladies' singles; but both Miss Hollins and Miss Cadle played fairly well against her. She was in the two other level event finals, but lost them both. With E.W. Sutton she was beaten by the Pickersgills, brother and sister, who had achieved a good but rather lucky victory over J.L. Figgis and Mrs. Figgis in the semi-final, and, playing with her sister, Miss S.M. Aitchison, she was defeated by Miss Hollins and Mrs. Figgis in the ladies' doubles, after a very long match which the losers ought to have won. They led 5/2 in the final set, but their judgement was sadly at fault at this stage, with plenty of opportunity for side-line shots they aimed persistently at Miss Hollins at the net, and as she was volleying very well, they paid the penalty."

An early example of where seeding was needed. Larcombe comes through the toughest quarter, with former champ Sterry, (who she beats in round 3) and French clay court champ Broquedis both in the same section.

It was hoped the French sensation Suzanne Lenglen would make her Wimbledon debut this year, but her father felt she was too young. Besides, the 14 year old has never hit a ball on grass.

In an uninspiring final contested in intense heat Dorothea and Ethel both were conservative, waiting for mistakes rather than shooting for the tramlines. Chambers won through the long rallies to take her 7th Wimbledon title. It is a record that stands until 1938 (when Helen Wills broke it). Who knows how many more Wimbledons Chambers may have won had World war One not broken out weeks after this win.

A deadly curtain draws down on Europe. Lenglen will practice in the serenity of southern France, but most women will not hit a ball again until 1919. Rubber becomes a material for war rather than bouncing balls. American Elizabeth Ryan is in Russia when war alarms sound. She makes a dramatic escape on the last train from Russia into Germany. She had to sell all her possessions along the way as bribes except her trophy as Russian champion of 1914.

Wimbledon would not witness another Championships until 1919.
