Re: 1916

Thanks for all the results Mark. They have been added to the 1916 thread.

One small correction:

The US Nationals began on June 5, not June 6 (I double checked this with NYT)

Hello, can you add those results to the "1916 Results" thread created by Rollo? This is different from the threads I created and from which Rollo took many of the results he used in the threads he created. I don't like the format you use for your results and the fact that you rarely give a player's first name. Also "Miss", "Mrs" and "Mr" are always capitalised in English. "Usa" would also be written as "USA", etc.

As you can see, the format I used for the results threads I created is simple and invariable.

Excuse me Mark for my mistakes. I have clicked on 1916 in this page
Women's Tennis Results
and your thread is appeared.
Now I will add my results to the thread created by Rollo.
As regards the player's first name, I use "Wright & Ditson Guides" , where the names often are missing...
