“Among the ladies Mrs Colston might have been expected to win… yet she was beaten by a girl of fourteen summers. Mlle Lenglen is worth seeing. She serves overhand with the Doherty cut as no English lady does. She combines volleying with driving, and her tactics are fine for so young a player. She is physically strong and should have a great future.” (From “The Field”, September 6, 1913.)
*Draw note: In sourcesof the era Colston was often listed as Miss B. G. Colston. Her full name was Blanche Gladys Colston. She may have at times used her middle name of Gladys.
