*The 14th Annual tournament at St George’s Hill had a particular significance. It marked the return to tournament play of Queen Helen Wills after an absence of almost two years. Naturally the crowds flocked. There were some, of course, who were baying for her blood – anxious to see the old Queen cut to pieces by the onslaught of new blood. Her doubters thought she would not be able to regain the spirit of competitive play – her back could not possibly stand the strain of a prolonged match – as they watched her first match against Miss J M Notley, a finalist in the Middlesex junior championships last year some knowing looks were exchanged – her game had suffered – her ground strokes were lacking the old severity – her service lacked vigour – there was no agility in her footwork and she certainly did not show any undue enthusiasm for playing a stroke that called for any running. Helen lost 2 games in that match, won the tournament and went on to win her 7th Wimbledon.

1,000 see the final.

This marks the return of Mrs Moody to England after more than 2 years. In her first match 300 or so people crowd around the court, many of them sitting in lawn chairs. St. George's Hill has no center court. The courts are laid out in a line beneath a terraced clubhouse on a hill above.

In the quarters Mary Hardwick served for the match at 5-4 in the second set, but at 30-all she overdrove from the baseline and then doublefaulted to, according to the New york Times, "lose a golden opportunity." The match was played in a drizzling rain.

An enthuisiastic crowd often applauded Wills in the semis, Yorke's "chop" shots bringing out the full arsenal of the American.

Helen easily defeated defending champ Elsie Goldsack Pittman in the final. Moody often did not run after shots far out of reach, a habit she displays in many matches. Afterwards she said, "My game seems to be coming back to me. My back? I think we can forget about that."

Her Wimbledon betting odds jump from 4-1 to 2-1. Round's odds are 11-8, while Jacobs is 2-1.

It is reported by the London Daily Mirror that Betty Nuthall will be unable to compete at Wimnledon this year. It is the first time since the age of 14 that she will miss the premier event in the world. While Betty suffers no pain, a displaced vertebrae in her neck prevents her from fripping many items solidly, such as a tennis racquet.
