Week of April 27-May 3

April 27-May 2, Southsea Hard Court Tournament, Hampshire, England (Clay)
Venue: Southsea Hard Courts

FI: Lavinia Radeglia d. Madeline O'Neill 8-10 17-15 2-0 retired

MX: Madeline O'Neill/George Watt d. Beatrice Lee/George Thomas 6-3 6-4

From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", May 14, 1914: "The first spring tournament held on the Southsea Hard Courts was a great success in every way. The entries were good in class and sufficient in number to allow for a week's play without unduly overworking the competitors, while the weather, except for one afternoon, was almost perfect. [...]

"As far as we can judge a record for length was set up, so far as ladies are concerned, when Miss Lavinia Radeglia beat Mrs Madeline O'Neill by the score of 8-10, 17-15 in the first two sets; Miss Radeglia was leading 2-0 in the third set when Mrs O'Neill retired. This was hardly surprising; it would have astonished no one if one of the ladies had done so earlier in the proceedings. The match took three-and-a-half hours to play (another record, we should think), but apart from its closeness, it was not very exhilirating to watch. Still, as a feat of endurance and steadiness both ladies are to be complimented on their record-smashing performance."

FI: Doris Craddock/Stanley Doust (Aus) d. Phyllis Satterthwaite/A.W. Myers 4-6 6-4 6-4

"The first hard court tournament held by the Norwood Club was successful enough to prove that the fixture will be a very popular one. Though the entry was not large [...], it was an excellent one, from the "class" point of view, and better contests have not been seen during the hard court season. [...]

In the ladies' singles Mrs. Satterthwaite wore down Mrs. Craddock in the semi-final, her steadiness proving too effectual for the latter's hard hitting , and Mrs. Edgington qualified to meet her by defeating Mrs. Marriott after a good match, in which the second set ran to 14 games. The final was fairly protracted, and it was chiefly due to Mrs. Edgington's superior placing that she emerged the winner after two close sets."

Draw notes:

Mrs Marriott from this time period is usually identified as Cecily Marriott. The issue? She was married in 1916. Could the date be wrong-or is this a different Mrs Mariott?
