Re: Maud Watson(1864-1946) - The first Wimbledon women's singles champion

This is a great addition to the Blast Mark-thanks

Watson's streak of 54 consecutive match wins made her the first "unbeatable" female champion.




Maud (on left) and Lilian (on right) contested the first Wimbledon final. Two sisters did not contest another grand slam final until the 2001 US Open.
