In 1914, this tournament also incorporated the Australasian Championships. There was no separate women’s singles event. The mixed runners up later married.

"Miss Stewart won the triple crown of NSW. A player of most intense effort and though she seems always as if she would find the exertions too much for her, she always seems to have another final effort ready for the last game. Words of praise for Miss Schlesinger who beat Miss Waxman and extended Miss Stewart in the second set of the final. Miss Sharp (SA) is a model of steadiness while Miss Waxman's game has fallen off this year".

Re: 1914 results

MRS LAMBERT CHAMBERS ANECDOTE - THE DROP SHOT

“A short drop shot from the back of the court is a very paying stroke to have at your command.

I remember playing one match were I used this stroke a great deal. Owing to its success – my opponent never even attempted to reach it - I won ace after ace.

At the end of the match my opponent indignantly upbraided me, ‘I cannot admire your length.’ she protested. Neither did she think it was ‘fair to play sneaks’, adding, ‘Anybody could win if they cared to play like that.’

In her opinion it wasn’t tennis! I’m afraid I did not take this censure very seriously. As the object of the game is to put the ball as far out of reach of your opponent as possible, I could not see what difference there was between making her run from side to side of the base-line or to the net and back again. Both methods as regards placing are just as good tennis, and should be used judiciously in turn.

But this sort of argument did not appeal to my opponent; she still thought any one could win who cared to play that ‘unsporting game’. Should she try the stroke in her next match I am quite sure she will find it not so easy to play accurately as she had imagined.”

Lawn Tennis for Ladies by Dorothea Lambert Chambers
