1905

May Sutton storms England to claim the Wimbledon title. The redoubtable Dorothea Douglass fails the thwart the invader in the final of the Championships. It is the first time a female from outside the British Isles wins the world championship. Past American contestants had not considered threats to win. At first glance many British critics wrote May off. Her solid appearance led many to believe she would prove too slow about the court.
Sutton literally rolled up her sleeves and went to the woodshed on foes,who watched topspin forehands bound by them for winners. Both the high bouncing topspin and rolled up sleeves were novelties. Proper ladies kept the sleeves buttoned. The English press took to calling her "The Pasadena Washerwoman."

Ironically enough the Pasadena lass was born in Plymouth, England. Her father emigrated the family to America when May was a child, so in a manner of speaking she returning to her roots.

With Sutton in England her US National title went to Bessie Moore, the 1904 finalist. Bessie won for the 3rd time.

Although Dorothea Douglass was not defending her title, the Challenge Round in the women’s singles event seems to lapse at this tournament from this year onwards. The American May Sutton's particpation in several tournaments in Britain in 1905 brought a breath of fresh air to the tennis scene in the birthplace of tennis. May Sutton went undefeated in singles play in British tournaments in 1905.

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 1905:

“In the ladies’ open singles it was natural that the greatest interest should be taken in the progress of Miss May Sutton. The American lady reached the semi-finals with the loss of only three games after playing three rounds. There is no doubt that her play improved considerably during the week, and her match against Miss Connie Wilson in the semi-final was looked forward to with very great interest, a close match being anticipated. The result, however, was disappointing, Miss Sutton scoring an easy victory, 6-2, 6-2. The winner hit very powerfully, keeping an excellent length all through the match, affording her opponent little chance. It must be admitted that Miss Wilson was not playing her usual game. She kept a very poor length, and seemed satisfied in adopting defensive tactics.

“The other semi-final, between Miss Ethel Thomson and Miss Hilda Lane, created a further surprise – Miss Thomson, after taking the first set comfortably at 6 games to 1, allowing Miss Lane to take the next two sets at 6-4, 6-1. In the final tie, between Miss Sutton and Miss Lane, both players seemed affected by the sodden court. Miss Sutton took the first set at 7-5, and after leading 4-2 in the second set lost the lead (5-6), but ultimately ran out the winner. The American lady is to be congratulated on her success in her first appearance at an English tournament. She played five rounds without the loss of a set. Her forehand drive is very severe, and she wins several points by an effective but rather clumsy volley.”

Summary

An American shocks the All England Club by smashing through all to become the first foreign female to reign as Wimbledon champon. True, she is English born, but this brash young girl called May Sutton is an entirely new sort of female lawn tennis prodigy.

Born in Plymouth in 1886, her family had emigrated to California in 1890. It was in the Western US that she learnt her whipped topspin shots. She boldly sailed for England in May of 1905, alone except for a letter of introduction from Marion Jones, the American who had entered wimbledon in 1900. May stayed with the Hillyard family to get used to English conditions. The Hillyards thought the heftly May would be too slow around the court, but she proved them wrong by winning her first event at Manchester.

At Wimbledon "spectators were shocked to see her ignore protocol and play with the cuffs of her blouse rolled back, revealing bare wrists." May still wore the long skirt with a belt, but her blouse was more loosely fitted for better movement. In fact, she often wore her father's shirts for this reason. May topped off this ensemble with a headband, crowned with a large bow just above her forehead. Her stockings and shoes were all white.

Ethel Thomson used drop shots to build a 5-2 lead in the first set of her qf with Sutton until the Americans's superior driving wore her down at 8-6 6-1. Commenting on this match, Molla Bjurstedt Mallory said, "Mrs. Bundy (Miss May Sutton) is a hard and accurate driver; it was her driving that brought her the English championship, although she plays extremely well overhead when such play is needed. She drove so well that some of the English women thought they could break up her game if only they could dislodge her from the command of the drive. In the championship singles of 1905 Mrs. Larcombe (then Miss E. W. Thompson) planned to win from Miss Sutton with a volley game. She lured Miss Sutton to the net by a short, drop drive and then lobbed the return high to the base line; this gave her the chance to reach the net, where she caught Miss Sutton's return of the lob with a sharp cross-court volley for the ace. Miss Thompson won five out of the first seven games by these tactics, but she ran herself off her feet in the winning; she became feebler and feebler, while Miss Sutton was as fresh and strong as at the beginning. Having worn herself out, Miss Thompson lost all control and Miss Sutton ran out that set and then took the second set and the match without the least trouble. Possibly Miss Thompson might have won had she been able to keep up her starting pace but she went the way of all women volleyers. I am fairly certain that, some day, a girl will burst out with the ability to play the fast game through the course of two tournament sets; that girl will be, beyond question, a champion. But there is no sight of her as yet."

In the Challenge Round may beat Douglass 6-3 6-4. The holder was hampered by a wrist injury suffered in France 3 months earlier. She almost considered defaulting until "a course of electricity" allowed her to practice and compete.

"The rallies were sometimes long and exciting but when they were extended May invariably won the point with a crushing forehand drive. Her victory never seemed in doubt" after she dropped the first game. May hit continuously to Douglass's backhand to gain errors.

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 12, 1905:

“A huge interested audience was gathered together in the centre court when Miss Douglass most pluckily, in spite of the troublesome pain to her right wrist, and consequent want of practice, started the match with a bad omen of what was to come – a double fault. Nevertheless she won the first game, which, however, was the only one she managed to capture for some time, as Miss Sutton, playing far better than we have seen her before, took the next five. Here, however, the holder made a determined effort, and, winning the next two games, caused the score to be called 5-3 in Miss Sutton’s favour. This, however, was unavailing, as the American, who was not to be denied, ran out a winner of the first set at 6-3.

“In the second and what proved to be the deciding set Miss Sutton, who played in relentless fashion on Miss Douglass’s backhand, placed the first three games to her credit before the latter lady, by dint of some good well-played services and telling drives, managed to win two games; she, however, lost the sixth game to 15, which gave Miss Sutton the useful lead of 4-2. In the next game, with Miss Sutton serving, the holder got to 40-30, but lost it, making the score 5-2 in favour of the challenger. Nothing daunted, she, however, although deuce was called in the next, won the game, and also the next, but this was her final effort, as she lost the next game to love and with it the set at 6-4.

“Thus for the first time the Ladies’ Championship has gone from this country. Miss Sutton’s service, which is not strong, was considerably better than her opponent’s, and she got it in consistently. There was little variety in the play, practically no lobbing and hardly a volley shot being attempted. The rallies were sometimes long and exciting, and when they were long Miss Sutton invariably carried off the point with a well and fiercely directed forehand drive. Absolute confidence and splendid condition marked Miss Sutton’s entire effort, and she seemed mistress of the situation from the first game of the second set.”

Although born in England, May Sutton was raised in the United States and in 1905 became the first overseas player to win a Wimbledon singles title. She won the title without the loss of a set, making her the first - and to this day still the only - player, male or female, to win both the US Championships and Wimbledon on her debut and in straight sets. In addition, she was still a teenager when she achieved both feats.

Note that the ladies doubles and mixed doubles are non-championship events.

Draw Notes

The draw of 48 – a record for the women's singles event at Wimbledon – features not only two pairs of sisters – the rather obscure E. Flemmich and L. Flemmich, and D. Taplin and M. Taplin – but also a set of three sisters. These are the Meyers, Cornelia ("Connie"), Frieda and Nora. They were German in origin.

O'Neill is the married name of the Englishwoman Madeline Fisher.

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 19, 1905: “In the ladies’ singles (open) Welsh Championships (holder, Miss Connie Wilson), the entries included Miss May Sutton (English champion), Miss Wilson, Miss Violet Pinckney, Mrs Ruth Winch, Miss Maud Garfit, Miss Lottie Paterson, Miss Edith Boucher, Miss Mabel Squire, Mrs Madeline O’Neill and Miss E. Monckton.

“In the second round Miss Sutton defeated Miss Boucher (8-6, 6-1), and the latter played extremely well in the first set. Miss Sutton then met Mrs Winch in the semi-final, and this produced one of the finest matches of the week. Taking the first set at 6-3, Miss Sutton appeared to have an easy victory, but Mrs Winch, playing an excellent length, and displaying a fine backhand stroke, actually led at 5-2 and 40-love in the next game. At 40-15 the game and set appeared to have been won by Mrs Winch, as a baseline ball was apparently well over the line, but the stroke went in favour of Miss Sutton, who from then on always held the upper hand. The most remarkable feature of the game was the plucky way in which Miss Sutton went for her stroke even at 2-5, love-40.

“Miss Wilson defeated Miss Pinckney in the other semi-final (6-1, 6-3), and a great fight was looked for in the final, but Miss Sutton ran out the easiest of winners (6-0, 6-1), and the Welsh Championship crosses the ocean in company with the English. Miss Wilson was probably over-anxious to make the cup her own, having won it twice, but Miss Sutton’s play was wonderfully good.”

The winner of the women's singles title, Muriel Lucas, was probably better known as a badminton player. She would win the women's singles title at the All England Badminton Championships six times, in 1902, 1905 and from 1907-10. She would also win the women's doubles title at the All England Badminton Championships ten times, including four times with Ethel Thomson (later Larcombe), who would win the women's single title at Wimbledon in 1912 and was herself a top badminton player for several years.

From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", August 23, 1905: "The annual tournament was held at the Teignmouth Lawn Tennis Club's grounds, at Lower Bitton, on July 31 to August 5. This is the third annual tournament of the present series, but many players will remember the successful tournaments of 1897 and previous years..."

Acording to Wright and Ditson's Annual May Sutton's participation in the Tri-State helped make the event a smashing success. Even her practices attracted huge galleries. The Cincinatti Commerical Tribune reported that for the finals "The five thousand people that crowded and jammed into every seat, on every stair, on house tops and in trees left no the grounds feeling thay no shot in tennis is impossible." The recently crowned Wimbledon champ romps through the filed, dropping only 1 game in 6 matches.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for those results, the Pacific Coast Championship for ladies in the 1900s surely deserves a Grand Slam status.
It is a pity the Sutton sisters played so few matches outside California, not to speak of Wimbledon. It is very difficult to assess their strength in these years compared to other players in the world.

Marks results have been added-I love the newspaper reports that tend to bring the bare bones of scores alive. I had scores for the Southern Cal event, clearly not from 1905-I'll have to see where those belong.


It says May Sutton defeated Helen Homan in the final 6-0, 6-1. Was that the all-comers final?

I would imagine this is the case as the last sentence mentions a championship round. Luckily I have just obtained a book with all of the Tri-State results from the quarters on-I'll check and add those results in:) Note the newspaper spelled her last name as "Homan" in error-it's Homans.

Quarters
Sutton d. Thomson 8-6 6-1

Commenting on this match, Molla Bjurstedt Mallory said, "Mrs. Bundy (Miss May Sutton) is a hard and accurate driver; it was her driving that brought her the English championship, although she plays extremely well overhead when such play is needed. She drove so well that some of the English women thought they could break up her game if only they could dislodge her from the command of the drive. In the championship singles of 1905 Mrs. Larcombe (then Miss E. W. Thompson) planned to win from Miss Sutton with a volley game. She lured Miss Sutton to the net by a short, drop drive and then lobbed the return high to the base line; this gave her the chance to reach the net, where she caught Miss Sutton's return of the lob with a sharp cross-court volley for the ace. Miss Thompson won five out of the first seven games by these tactics, but she ran herself off her feet in the winning; she became feebler and feebler, while Miss Sutton was as fresh and strong as at the beginning. Having worn herself out, Miss Thompson lost all control and Miss Sutton ran out that set and then took the second set and the match without the least trouble. Possibly Miss Thompson might have won had she been able to keep up her starting pace but she went the way of all women volleyers. I am fairly certain that, some day, a girl will burst out with the ability to play the fast game through the course of two tournament sets; that girl will be, beyond question, a champion. But there is no sight of her as yet." Tennis for Women, by Molla Bjurstedt and Samuel Crowther, Doubleday Page & Company, 1916.

Rollo
Feb 1st, 2011, 05:22 PM
I added Molla's comment. She was consistent in believing in the baseline game-reinterating these views at the height of the serve and volley era in the late 1940s.

It's a right observation, Karoly.

We have also the roll, since 1895, in Official Tournament Winners by Event thread, but now we must correct it.
That roll doesn't accord with the few winners that we know on Bohemian Championships (that were held in Prague in the same time of Austrian Champs.) so from 1895 to 1914 is more probable was Prague Championships, or "Championships of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia".
Both these tournaments were played in those years.

Karoly,

As Mauro says above, the precursor to the Czechoslovakian Championships was probably the "Championships of Bohemia, Morovia and Silisea" event held at the same tournament as the Championships of Prague event.

The "Championships of Bohemia, Morovia and Silesia" appear to have been distinct from the "Championships of Bohemia" event held alongside the Austrian Championships event held before World War One at a separate venue in Prague. If I remember correctly, the "Championships of Bohemia, Morovia and Silesia" event was referred to once or twice as the "Championships of the Republic".

The venue for the "Championships of Bohemia, Morovia and Silisea" and the Championships of Prage was the "First Czech Lawn Tennis Club".
--

If I'm not mistaken, there were also various tournaments held in Slovakia before World War One with titles such as the Slovakian Championships, the Championships of East Slovakia, the Championships of West Slovakia, etc. I don't remember seeing any of these tournaments mentioned in "Der Lawn-Tennis-Sport" or "Lawn-Tennis und Golf".

Clearly a Czechoslovakian Championships tournament was only possible after World War One.

Mark,

I agree with you.
You have added the Czechoslovakian Champs. in 1903, 04, 05, 06, and these results are according with those that we had in the honour roll of Czechoslovakian Champs. in Official Tournament Winners by Event thread, and that I have removed yesterday (from 1895 to 1914).

On the site of "First Czech Lawn Tennis Club" (I. Cesky LTK) there is just written that in 1895 was "the first international tournament called the Championship of the Czech crown."
http://www.cltk.cz/home/?page_id=4030

This denomination is equivalent to "Championships of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia" as these 3 regions form the Czech lands.

So I think can reinsert those removed results, with these new denominations, and you could check again your sources for 1903, 04, 05, 06, checking if there is a more exact denomination of those tournaments that you have added as Czechoslovakian Champs.

Hi Mark,

I highly doubt there was any kind of Slovakian Championships before WWI. The present Slovakia was always part of Hungary, it was never independent or called like that before 1918. It is only in the past 100 years that Slovakia is associated with the Czech Republic.
Northern Hungary had of course several counties, after WWI (the Trianon treaty) many of them were divided between Hungary and the newly formed Czechoslovakia.

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 1905:

“In the ladies’ open singles it was natural that the greatest interest should be taken in the progress of Miss May Sutton. The American lady reached the semi-finals with the loss of only three games after playing three rounds. There is no doubt that her play improved considerably during the week, and her match against Miss Connie Wilson in the semi-final was looked forward to with very great interest, a close match being anticipated. The result, however, was disappointing, Miss Sutton scoring an easy victory, 6-2, 6-2. The winner hit very powerfully, keeping an excellent length all through the match, affording her opponent little chance. It must be admitted that Miss Wilson was not playing her usual game. She kept a very poor length, and seemed satisfied in adopting defensive tactics.

“The other semi-final, between Miss Ethel Thomson and Miss Hilda Lane, created a further surprise – Miss Thomson, after taking the first set comfortably at 6 games to 1, allowing Miss Lane to take the next two sets at 6-4, 6-1. In the final tie, between Miss Sutton and Miss Lane, both players seemed affected by the sodden court. Miss Sutton took the first set at 7-5, and after leading 4-2 in the second set lost the lead (5-6), but ultimately ran out the winner. The American lady is to be congratulated on her success in her first appearance at an English tournament. She played five rounds without the loss of a set. Her forehand drive is very severe, and she wins several points by an effective but rather clumsy volley.”

Wimbledon Challenge Round: May Sutton (USA) d. Dorothea Douglass (holder) 6-3, 6-4

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 12, 1905:

“A huge interested audience was gathered together in the centre court when Miss Douglass most pluckily, in spite of the troublesome pain to her right wrist, and consequent want of practice, started the match with a bad omen of what was to come – a double fault. Nevertheless she won the first game, which, however, was the only one she managed to capture for some time, as Miss Sutton, playing far better than we have seen her before, took the next five. Here, however, the holder made a determined effort, and, winning the next two games, caused the score to be called 5-3 in Miss Sutton’s favour. This, however, was unavailing, as the American, who was not to be denied, ran out a winner of the first set at 6-3.

“In the second and what proved to be the deciding set Miss Sutton, who played in relentless fashion on Miss Douglass’s backhand, placed the first three games to her credit before the latter lady, by dint of some good well-played services and telling drives, managed to win two games; she, however, lost the sixth game to 15, which gave Miss Sutton the useful lead of 4-2. In the next game, with Miss Sutton serving, the holder got to 40-30, but lost it, making the score 5-2 in favour of the challenger. Nothing daunted, she, however, although deuce was called in the next, won the game, and also the next, but this was her final effort, as she lost the next game to love and with it the set at 6-4.

“Thus for the first time the Ladies’ Championship has gone from this country. Miss Sutton’s service, which is not strong, was considerably better than her opponent’s, and she got it in consistently. There was little variety in the play, practically no lobbing and hardly a volley shot being attempted. The rallies were sometimes long and exciting, and when they were long Miss Sutton invariably carried off the point with a well and fiercely directed forehand drive. Absolute confidence and splendid condition marked Miss Sutton’s entire effort, and she seemed mistress of the situation from the first game of the second set.”

FI: May Sutton (USA) d. Connie Wilson 6-0, 6-1

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 19, 1905: “In the ladies’ singles (open) Welsh Championships (holder, Miss Connie Wilson), the entries included Miss May Sutton (English champion), Miss Wilson, Miss Violet Pinckney, Mrs Ruth Winch, Miss Maud Garfit, Miss Lottie Paterson, Miss Edith Boucher, Miss Mabel Squire, Mrs Madeline O’Neill and Miss E. Monckton.

“In the second round Miss Sutton defeated Miss Boucher (8-6, 6-1), and the latter played extremely well in the first set. Miss Sutton then met Mrs Winch in the semi-final, and this produced one of the finest matches of the week. Taking the first set at 6-3, Miss Sutton appeared to have an easy victory, but Mrs Winch, playing an excellent length, and displaying a fine backhand stroke, actually led at 5-2 and 40-love in the next game. At 40-15 the game and set appeared to have been won by Mrs Winch, as a baseline ball was apparently well over the line, but the stroke went in favour of Miss Sutton, who from then on always held the upper hand. The most remarkable feature of the game was the plucky way in which Miss Sutton went for her stroke even at 2-5, love-40.

“Miss Wilson defeated Miss Pinckney in the other semi-final (6-1, 6-3), and a great fight was looked for in the final, but Miss Sutton ran out the easiest of winners (6-0, 6-1), and the Welsh Championship crosses the ocean in company with the English. Miss Wilson was probably over-anxious to make the cup her own, having won it twice, but Miss Sutton’s play was wonderfully good.”

FI: Muriel Lucas* d. Miss Everard 8-6, 6-4

* The winner of the women's singles title, Muriel Lucas, was probably better known as a badminton player. She would win the women's singles title at the All England Badminton Championships six times, in 1902, 1905 and from 1907-10. She would also win the women's doubles title at the All England Badminton Championships ten times, including four times with Ethel Thomson (later Larcombe), who would win the women's single title at Wimbledon in 1912 and was herself a top badminton player for several years.
--

From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", August 23, 1905: "The annual tournament was held at the Teignmouth Lawn Tennis Club's grounds, at Lower Bitton, on July 31 to August 5. This is the third annual tournament of the present series, but many players will remember the successful tournaments of 1897 and previous years..."

Canadian Championship query. This shows no result (I think Spauldings shows nothing also). BUT, tennis canada at http://www.tenniscanada.com/index.php?title=violet-summerhayes&pid=1179 tells us that Violet Summerhayes won in 1905. Do they have info we don't? What's also odd is the the Rogers Cup official website shows nothing for 1905 BUT that Violet Summerhayes won in 1902. Our 1902 sections says that a Miss Hague beat Summerhayes in the challenge round 6-0 6-1 in 1902. Do we have multiple corroborations for these two years?

About 1902 I have Spalding's and Wright & Ditson 1903 (with results for 1902) and they write both that in CR Hague beat Summerhayes 6-0 6-1.
Therefore the Rogers Cup official website is wrong.

About 1905 I don't have Wright & Ditson, but I have Spalding's 1906 (with results for 1905) and it writes nothing.
So at the moment we have 2 Canadian conflicting sources, that you have quoted.
But in 1905 men played the Championship, so is possible that women too...

Canadian Championship query. This shows no result (I think Spauldings shows nothing also). BUT, tennis canada at http://www.tenniscanada.com/index.php?title=violet-summerhayes&pid=1179 tells us that Violet Summerhayes won in 1905. Do they have info we don't? What's also odd is the the Rogers Cup official website shows nothing for 1905 BUT that Violet Summerhayes won in 1902. Our 1902 sections says that a Miss Hague beat Summerhayes in the challenge round 6-0 6-1 in 1902. Do we have multiple corroborations for these two years?

About 1905 I must correct my previous answer of last August 29, because now I have Wright & Ditson, and on page 230, introducing the Niagara-on-the-Lake International tournament, it writes that: "There had been considerable apathy earlier in the season and the Canadian Championships were not played."
So no Canadian Championships this year, neither Men's nor Women's.

Second half of August

last week of August Canadian International Championships, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada (Grass)
Venue: Queen's Royal Hotel

FI: Violet Summerhayes d. [Alice] Day (US) 6-2 6-3

MX: Minnie Hague/Kirkover d. Mrs Hole/Bissell 6-2 6-3

Wright & Ditson, on page 230, writes that: "There had been considerable apathy earlier in the season and the Canadian Championships were not played." So there were no Canadian Championships this year, only the International event at Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Hi Rollo! As I have written in my quoted post, this year the Canadian Championships were not played. So it's wrong name the above tournament Canadian International Championships.
The exact denomination is simply Niagara-on-the-Lake International, that already had a long tradition in 1905.

I have also seen it called Canadian International (which explains a lot of the confusion), but went ahead and changed it back to Niagara.

US and Wimbledon results fully edited. I am also adding many results from the Wright and Ditson Jimbo found. I will mine this source from start to finish so we don't have to revisit it.
