July 6-11, North London Championships/Gipsy Tournament, London, England (Grass)
Venue: North London Club

FI: Agnes Morton d. Geraldine Beamish 6-3, 6-2

DF: Hazel Hogarth/Agnes Morton d. Geraldine Beamish/Madeline O'Neill 7-5, 6-3

MX: Hazel Hogarth/C.S. Gordon-Smith d. Geraldine Beamish/Alfred Beamish 6-4 7-5

"From every point of view, except perhaps one, this meeting was the most successful that the leading North London Club has ever held. There was a thunder shower early on Thursday afternoon[...]; the courts—always a strong card with the Gipsies—were at their very best; and the gate receipts showed that the interest taken in the meeting locally is on the increase. The one cause for regret was that more of the crack players did not attend a meeting so eminently worthy of their support; but now that the fixture clashes with the Davis Cup preliminary ties and the ordeal of the Championships lasts for a full fortnight and sometimes (as it did this year) even longer, this is almost inevitable, and a change of date next year is more than probable.

The early stages of the ladies' singles were somewhat uneventful, but Mrs. R.T. Hall, having strengthened her backhand returns during the winter, put up a good fight against Mrs. Beamish, as did Mrs. R.C. Wilkinson (formerly Miss Nelson) against Mrs. O'Neill. In the semi-final Mrs. Beamish confirmed her Chiswick Park victory over Mrs. O'Neill, and in the final ran Miss Morton, in a brisk hard-hitting encounter, much closer than the score indicates."

July 8-11, Welsh Championships, Newport, Wales (Grass)

?R: Mrs Fletcher d. Winifred Longhurst ????

FI: Edith Hannam d. Mrs Fletcher 6-0 6-1

MX: Edith Hannam/Charles P. Dixon d. Winifred Longhurst/ E. Gwynne-Evans 6-1 6-1

"The coincidence of Davis Cup matches and the growing popularity of London tournaments has somewhat depressed the entry for the Welsh Championships in recent years.[...]

Miss W.A. Longhurst who, on paper, was Mrs. Hannam's most formidable adversary, was playing a good deal below her proper form throughout the meeting, mainly owing to the fact that she has recently recovered from a tennis elbow, and suffers in consequence from a lack of practice. Mrs. Fletcher's cut-strokes and drop-shots were too much for her on an extremely sodden court."

July 6-11, Epsom, Surrey, England (Grass)

FI: Agnes Tuckey d. Dorothy Holman 6-3 6-2

DF: Dorothy Holman/Agnes Tuckey d. Mrs Mercer/Mrs Parbury 6-2 6-2

MX: Agnes Tuckey/ George Thomas d. Edith Johnson/J.B. Ward 6-4 5-7 6-0

"Favored with a record entry Epsom was lucky to find the weather all that could be desired.[...]

The ladies' singles attracted a good entry. In the first round Miss Holman had anxious moments before beating Mrs. Craddock, who was playing well, in two close 'vantage sets, in both of which the latter had secured a winning lead, which she failed to push home while in the second round Mrs. Parbury ran the finalist to 'vantage games in the first set before succumbing more easily in the second. In the semifinal Miss Johnson was evidently affected by the heat and could do little against Miss Holman. In the other half of the draw Mrs. Tuckey beat all her opponents with great ease and crowned her achievements by defeating Miss Holman with a good deal to spare in the final. Throughout the winner's singles play was good. Her backhand, though not a stylish stroke, is eminently sound and has added advantage of producing winning shots when, to all appearances, nothing is less likely to eventuate, while her volleying lacked nothing in severity."

MX: Elizabeth Ryan (US)/Arthur W Gore d. Gladys Lamplough/Erik Larsen (Den) 6-2 6-2

"The ladies' singles was robbed of its interest first by the retirement of Miss Ryan, who elected not to play in this event and afterwards by the scratching of Miss Pinckney in the final to Mrs. Lamplough, owing to a telegram recalling her to town immediately."

"With over a hundred more entries than last year, the Irish All Comers' Championship meeting, held on the courts of the Fitzwilliam L.T.C., on July 13-18, was a huge affair. Indeed, it is clear that the time has come when something must be done either to provide more courts for the tournament, or to curtail the programme.[...]

The ladies' singles ended in a surprise, Miss I. Clarke defeating Mrs. W.A. Longhurst in the final; the loser won the first set after a tremendous struggle, but Miss Clarke, who stayed the better, was always ahead in the next two. She played extremely well, combining steady base-line play with well-judged excursions to the net, her volleying being accurate and effective. She was equally good throughout the event, and did not lose a set on her way to the final. Miss Radeglia, who was generally regarded as a possible winner, unluckily strained her arm very badly and was obliged to scratch in the third round, this mishap affecting her in the other events also."

July 13-18, Norwood Open, London, England (Grass)

DF: Geraldine Beamish/Miss Hogarth d. Doris Craddock/Mrs Hollick 8-6 6-3

MX: Madeline O’Neill/Gordon Lowe d. Geraldine Beamish/Alfred Beamish 6-3 3-6 6-1

"Last week, in the delightful grounds situated in South Norwood Park, the Norwood Club held its sixth annual tournament, including in its programme the singles for the Championship of Europe. All the courts, the three "show" ones in particular, were in fine condition, and gave great satisfaction.[...]

Mrs. Craddock, who has been gradually improving for some time, captured the ladies' singles, and proved that she has now to be seriously reckoned with, by defeating Mrs. Beamish and Mrs. O'Neill. Both these ladies were nearly put out previously, the former by Mrs. Hollick and the latter by Miss Fison, and were certainly fortunate to survive after very close matches. In the semi-final Mrs. Beamish was not at her best and could not withstand the flow of Mrs. Craddock's fierce drives, but in the final Mrs. O'Neill was playing quite well. Both ladies kept a capital length and they had tremendous rallies. Mrs. O'Neill led 4/2 in the first set and 5/4 in the second, but could not press home her advantage. Several of her short shots were not short enough and made openings for a winner for her opponent, while Mrs. Craddock scored outright on the few occasions she made a similar shot."

The gentlemen's singles alone was part of the Championship of Europe.

July 13-18, Warwickshire Championships, Leamington, Warwickshire, England (Grass)

SF: Phyllis Satterthwaite d. Mrs Hole ????

FI: Phyllis Satterthwaite d. B. Lee 1-6 7-5 6-3

MX: Gladys Lamplough/S.E. Charlton d. Miss Dicksee/P.E. Hanting 6-1 6-2

"Considering the small amount of tournament play which Mrs. Lamplough gets nowadays she did well to make as good a fight of it as she did with Miss Lee in the ladies' singles. A noteworthy win in this event was that of Mrs. Hole over Mrs. Perrett. Content therewith, she offered very little resistance in the semi-final to Mrs. Satterthwaite, who accordingly met Miss Lee in the final. This was, we believe, the fifth encounter between these two ladies and as the result of it Mrs. Satterthwaite becomes "one up." Miss Lee began promisingly, but succumbed in the end, as so many ladies do, to her rival's indomitable accuracy and activity."

She lost a set to Mrs. Edgington, and very nearly another to Mrs. Lamplough in the final, which was one of the best ladies' singles seen for some time. Mrs. Lamplough attacked throughout, but Miss Holman got nearly everything back, and was thus enabled to wait for the inevitable mistake which followed after two or three exceptionally good shots from Mrs. Lamplough."

Thus began the silence on the tennis scene in Europe as "The Great War descends" over the continent. Areas such as Amiens and Compiegne in the north of France, Suzanne's home district, will be the witness to savage fighting and destruction.

"Mrs. "James" and Miss Aitchison, the finalists in the ladies' singles, had a great match, and although Mrs. "James" with her greater variety of stroke looked to be playing the better all the time there was really nothing in it, for Miss Aitchison's fine fore-hand drive was very difficult to combat on the soft court. After being led in the third set she picked up to 5/5 and was only beaten at 9/7. Mrs "James" also carried off the mixed doubles in partnership with A.D. Prebble, and the ladies' doubles with Mrs. Armstrong, and in neither of these events did she lose a set. Clements and Miss Aitchison reached the final of the mixed by dint of a very meritorious win against Beamish and Mrs. Beamish, who were playing much better than they did at the Gipsy tournament."

"Mrs. Satterthwaite, Mrs. Craddock and Mrs. Pearce were in one half of the ladies' singles, and the first upset of form came in the easy defeat of Mrs. Craddock by the latter lady. The former was by no means in her Norwood form, while Mrs. Pearce has seldom been seen to better advantage. In her tie with Mrs. Satterthwaite, Mrs. Pearce again did well, offering a stubborn resistance and capturing the second set, but was eventually worn down by the deadly accuracy of her opponent. In the other half Mrs. Marriott did well to defeat Miss Fison (the holder), thus reversing last year's result when Miss Fison just beat her, and also Mrs. D.K. Hole without losing a point to either. The winner was keeping a capital length and nursing her game judiciously with drop shots and volleys. The final was better than the score indicates, nearly every game being deuce and the rallies long, but Mrs. Satterthwaite's persistency generally gained her the deciding ace."

"A large crowd was present on the Saturday and witnessed by far and away the best match of the meeting. This was the final of the ladies' singles, between Mrs. O'Neill (holder 1912, 1913) and the 17 year old Miss G.B. Palmer. Considering the adverse conditions which prevailed, with the wind blowing over the ground with almost hurricane force, much of the tennis was good and the match had an exciting finish. Miss Palmer, however, just failed to prevent her adversary from making the cup her own property. Mrs. O'Neill started strongly and won the initial set with the utmost ease. Miss Palmer then dealt out some magnificent drives on either wing, and establishing a lead of 5/3 eventually won a close second set. A stern struggle ensued for the last set and though the holder led 5/3, her youthful opponent stuck to her guns and, equalising, actually led at 7/6. However, experience and restraint told its inevitable tale and the holder went out in the sixteenth game."

Re: 1914 results

Week of July 27-August 2

ends July 30 Moscow Tournament, Moscow, Russia (Clay?)

Won by Elizabeth Ryan (US)
Mixed doubles won by Elizabeth Ryan (US)/Heine Kleinschroth (Ger)

Both Germany and Russia are mobilizing for war with each other. Mobilization is declared by both nations as the Moscow event ends. Now Ryan, Mrs Dudley (her mother), and the German Kleinschroth make a desperate dash to get out of Russia before war breaks out. Mrs Dudley uses gold to bribe train officials and the trio discard their luggage. They cross over into Berlin on what literally may have been the last train from Russia into Germany. Kleinschroth is now safe, but the American women must still journey west or risk being trapped in Germany for the war's duration, as the domino effect is dragging Germany into conflict with France and Britain. With Heine's help Elizabeth and her mother cross the Beligian border on August 2, one day before Germany invades Belgium.

Due to the outbreak of the First World War, this was the last big tennis tournament to be held in Great Britain until 1919. The United Kingdom declared war on Germany on August 3, 1914.

"Mrs. Larcombe won the ladies' singles without being really extended, losing only 7 games throughout. Her opponent in the final was Miss. K.B. Aitchison, of Sunderland. Mrs. R. Welsh (the previous holder) was not present to defend her title. The ladies' doubles went to Mrs. Larcombe and Miss W.A. Longhurst, who received a walk over in the final from the Misses K.B. and S.M. Aitchison."

"It is scarcely necessary to say that the war news seriously affected several competitors at this tournament. All the military men, and there were several, many of them gunners, were recalled at a moment's notice and had to leave in the middle of the matches. Others, concerned about their business affairs, also made hurried tracks fearing lest they should be unable to leave the Island if they delayed their departure. The entry was considerable larger than last year and well up to the usual standard as regards class. It was essentially Miss Lee's tournament–she was successful in three open events and by winning the singles for the third time in succession retains the handsome cup as her own.[...]

Miss Lee's only serious opponent before the final was Mrs. Craddock, who had defeated her the last time they met, at Malvern. This time the result was reversed, the latter led 4/2 in the first set, but Miss Lee then took the next four games and ran out, and also won the second with a similar score. Mrs. Craddock was not at her best during the meeting and could probably do with a rest."

"The curtailment of the duration of this meeting to four days had the effect of greatly increasing the entry, and it became a question whether the tournament could be got through on 12 courts, three of which were only available for singles play.[,,,]

The overwhelming superiority of Mrs. Lambert Chambers enabled her to beat all opponents with equal ease; even Miss Holman, although playing quite well, could get no more than one game against her."

DF: Geraldine Beamish/Agnes Morton d. Mrs Hugh Davies/Miss Stocks 6-3 6-0

MX: Agnes Morton/Herbert Roper-Barrett d. Geraldine Beamish/Alfred Beamish 6-1 6-1

From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1915): "A new venue for this meeting, at Framlingham. Herbert Roper Barrett and Agnes Morton won everything, as usual".
Source: Lawn Tennis and Badminton - August 20, 1914, pp. 917-918

"Evicted from its ancestral home in Hurts Hall Park, this old-established tournament was at one time in danger of lapsing, but a new venue was found for it on the cricket ground of Framlingham College, and many of its old adherents rallied to its support, with the result that a very fair entry indeed, both as regards quality and quantity, was obtained.[...]

In the final of the ladies' singles Mrs. Beamish failed to make as much headway against Miss Morton as she had made against her at the North London Championship meeting at the Gipsy tournament and in the mixed doubles Barrett and Miss Morton had quite a one-sided victory. So had Miss Morton and Mrs. Beamish in the ladies' doubles; but this was expected, the other was not, although Barrett and Miss Morton when they are really "going" are wonderfully adept at not losing more games than they can possibly help."

DF: Miss Mellersh/Agnes Tuckey d. Miss Birch-Harris/Katheen Lidderdale 6-2 6-1

MX: Agnes Tuckey/Charles Tuckey d. Miss E. E. Sargent/Watt 6-2 6-4

"The Hampshire Championship meeting was somewhat spoiled by rain which, intermittent during the week, culminated on Saturday in a steady drizzle, which fortunately was not sufficiently heavy to stop play in the finals of the level events. The sixteen courts were in excellent condition.[...]

In the ladies' singles Mrs. Tuckey by defeating Miss Radeglia in the final became the holder of the new challenge bowl, the former one having been won outright by Mrs. Hannam last year. Mrs. Pearce playing in the tournament for the first time showed excellent form, and Mrs. Hall's defeat of Mrs. Evered and close struggle with Miss Radeglia are worthy of note."

August 5-8, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England (Grass)

SF: Muriel Davies d. Winifred Longhurst ????

FI: Ethel Larcombe d. Muriel Davies 6-1 8-6

MX: Ethel Larcombe/H.C. Eltringham d. Miss Lewis/HC Baker 6-3 6-4

"Mrs. Larcombe had a very easy passage to the final of the ladies' singles, but Miss W.A. Longhurst, who was generally expected to come through the opposite half, was defeated in the semifinal by Miss Davies. The last-named lady thoroughly deserved her success as she played with any amount of confidence and kept Miss Longhurst on the defensive practically throughout the match. In the final Mrs. Larcombe won the first set with the greatest ease and reached 2 love in the second, but from this stage onwards every point was hotly contested and the better-known player only secured the set at 8/6."

Source: Lawn Tennis and Badminton - August 20, 1914, p. 919


In recent tournaments Miss Muriel Davies has been showing excellent form, and last week, at Kidderminster, she upheld her stiffened game, defeating Miss Longhurst in the semi-final of the ladies' level singles event. Against Mrs. Larcombe, too, in the final, she ran the second set to 8-6 before she lost.

Her recent rise seems to be due to added confidence rather than improved ability. Her placing has improved, and several balls that at one time she would have given up as hopeless she goes "all out" and "gets there".

If a few of the other Warwickshire ladies could be induced to take the game as seriously yet as light-heartedly as does Miss Davies, the Midland county would find themselves equal to winning the county cup[...].
