Le Messurier/Weston SA d Pett/Murdoch VIC 36 64 61
Hoddle Wrigley/Anthony VIC d Hocking/Griffiths SA 61 63

O'Hara Wood came into the net frequently and outclassed her opponent with crisp volleys and severe smashes.
Weston found that on the Melbourne courts the ball comes faster and the slow ball slower than is the case in Adelaide.
Le Messurier appeared to have the match in hand in the third set, but one or two drives just missed the line.

Dec Melbourne Victorian Championships

R2 Sylvia Harper VIC d M Muirhead VIC 60 62
R2 S Hocking SA d Ruth Stephens VIC 16 63 60

SF Le Messurier d Harper 06 63 62
SF Cox d Dingle 64 63

FI Cox d Le Messurier 75 64

In play there was little between the two and many of the rallies were very long, a number consisting of more than 20 strokes. Le Messurier saved two match points before losing a long final game.

SF Willard/Cox d Wood/Wood def
SF Hopman/Stephens d Sproule/Valkenburg

FI Hopman/Stephens d Willard/Cox def

Mrs O'Hara Wood broke a small bone in her foot while playing on Saturday 7 December and had to default to McKay/Stephens in the ladies doubles. She and her husband also defaulted to Willard/Cox in the mixed but due to a bruised thigh, Willard himself had to default to Hopman/Stephens.

And some names that might help here or in AO singles thread:

J Lillecrappe = Joyce Lillecrappe
Griffiths = Gwen Griffiths
B Kay = Bertha Kay
J Hone = Joyce Hone
N Hamilton = Nellie Hamilton (later Mrs P. Raymond Begg)
Peter Smith (later Mrs Jim Nathan)
Mollie McGrath (later Mrs Boyd King)

Re: 1929 results

to Gee Tee. This will be next on my list for 1929.

Gee Tee-You might also want to take a gander at the Slam section. I'm reorganizing the section so singles, doubles, and mixed are listed together and am adding many first names based your research (with abow to the other "Aussie" experts as well).
