Re: 1890 results


early April, British Covered Courts Championships, London, England (Indoors on wood)
Venue: Hyde Park Club

FI: May Jacks d. Maud Shackle 6-0 6-1

This was the inaugural women’s singles event at this tournament. A Challenge Cup was on offer for a number years in the women’s singles event. The men's event started in 1885.


April, South Austalian, Adelaide

FI Maisie Parr won


Date unknown, Natal Championship, Durban

FI N. Hickman d. Mabel Grant 6-3 3-6 6-3


Circa mid-April, Ceylon Championships, Nuwara Eliya, Ceylon

FI: Miss Wynniatt d. Miss Watson 6-1 6-1

From "Pastime", May 28, 1890: "Miss Wynniatt, the holder of the Ladies' Championship, was challenged by Miss Watson, but again secured the title."

If true this calls into question out current 1889 result:

Per Jimbo:

Check 1889, because August 18, 2013, you wrote this result:
FI: Mrs Norman d. Miss Watson 5-7, 6-2, 6-3
1889 results

That denies that Miss Wynniatt was the holder of the Ladies' Championship.
