1923

Summary

After Wimbledon had a successful championships with a new stadium the previous year, the US Championships (womens) had a new stadium as well and it was opened with the inauguration of the Wightman Cup. The US defeated Great Britain 7-0. Helen Wills (later Moody) won her first USA Championships after a so-so season. At Wimbledon Lenglen ruled supreme again losing 14 games in 6 matches and defeating McKane in the final. Also Molesworth retained the Australian Championships.

Lenglen won 16 singles titles and 13 doubles in 1923

In March the ITF decides to drop the "World Championship" titles for good. Thus the United States, which especially objected to Wimbledon's title of the World Championships on Grass, will become a member of the ITF. Wimbledon loses none of it's pretiege, while the World Hard Court Championships is contested for the last time in Paris. The Hard Court event morphs into the French Open in 1925. The World Covered court Championships, always the least prestigous of the 3 World Championships, dies and fades into obscurity.

Ryan, who was on the opposite side of the draw from Lengeln, scratched with a blistered hand before the event started.

The final was a close contest, especially in the first set when Satterwaite held a 4-2 lead. From 2-all in the second Lenglen swept the last 4 games to take the match.

In the final Bancroft has a match point at 5-4 to win in straight sets but is extended by the scrappy play of Scharman.

From the New York Times, using the Associated Press:

During this event Molla Mallory grabs headlines by landing in Paris on March 17 and heading straight for chic dress shops. Molla declares she is merely here on vacation with her husband. Nontheless she is entered in several Riviera events. Molla stated , "I am not coming here with a chip on my shoulder,looking for trouble. I like to play tennis to while away the time on the long sunny afternoons on the Riviera. I am challenging no one and expect to receive no challenges, but will play all comers."

Meanwhile Lenglen romps through another Riviera event. Ryan put up enough resistance in the final to grab four games, two more than four other women combined managed. The scratch of Kitty Mckane in singles meant Ryan had a clear path to the final.

The arrival of Molla Mallory has caused a beehive of activity on the Riviera. Few believe Molla's repeated pronouncements that she is here merely for a vacation. Fans are disspointed when Suzanne Lenglen withdraws from the singles-fueling speculation that she fears Mallory despite convincingly beating her last year at Wimbledon. Molla draws compliments for appearing for her first round match in spite of just arriving from the States. She remarks after a tough struglle that, "I am at a loss to understand why people at home take such an interest in these matches here. ... I do not attach to these games one fifth the importance that I would to Wimbledon or the American championships. If I did I certainly would have prepared for them, and would not have entered in my present playing form."

In an interview the next day after her withdrawal Lenglen responds to a question about Mallory by terminating the interview, heatedly replying, "I am not afraid of any woman tennis player in the world." Officials were reported to be upset with the French diva, as new stands were erected and sold out in anticipation of a Lenglen-Mallory clash. When La Lenglen gets a cold reception from spectators at the start of her first doubles match she declares she was never entered in the event, protresting that the tournament director M. Simon only announced her entry to boost ticket sales. "Gate receipts first, and let the spectators dissapointment spend itself on Suzanne." She is only entered in the doubles so her partner Liz Ryan "would not lose." Lenglen's father declares he will lodge a demand for an investigation to clear his daughter. Luckily for Suzanne her devoted fans cannot stay angry at her for long; she got an ovation from the crowd at the end of her first match. By the end of the week the club issues a statement: "The committee of La Festa Club of monte Calro declares it never announced that Mlle Lenglen would play in the singles of the tournament beginning Saturday, Feb 24, knowing that she was ailing and was coming to Monte Carlo only through courtesy."

Meanwhile Molla gets better, though she declares that she hears it takes 3 weeks to get used to the clay courts, noting she hasn't played "on dirt" since the World Hard Court event in 1921. Molla has been seen practicing 4 or 5 hours daily with Phyllis Satterwaite. The steady Satterwaite has won all of their practice sets.

A couple of days later Molla crashes out in both sinhles and doubles. Her famed forehand lacks its usual punch, and in both singles and doubles she repeatedly errs off her backhand. The largest crowd in Monte Carlo history comes to see the doubles QF featuring Mallory vs Lenglen.

Doubles final only the second time Lenglen/Ryan ever lost a set a a pair-the other, the 1919 Wimbledon final, also featured Mrs Chambers with Ethel Larcombe. Mallory begins Riviera season here. Ryan was the weak link-with pundits decalring that she looked overtennised.


From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1924): "So far as quality went the best match of the week was the final of the ladies' doubles, in which Mlle Lenglen and Miss Ryan found themselves in the quite unfamiliar position of being led 4-3 in the final set. Never before since they became [Wimbledon] champions had they lost a set, but the feat of Miss McKane and Mrs Lambert Chambers was due, not to any fortuitous circumstances, but to really brilliant play. They were aided in the last game of this set by two double faults by Miss Ryan, but they had worked up gallantly to this episode.

"Mrs Lambert Chambers showed how much she has advanced as a volleyer by smashing the lobs of her opponents into winning zones, while she made many low volleys of first-class quality. Also her oblique drives past the champion's backhand, when Mlle Lenglen was expecting a centre drive, influenced the capture of the set; another factor was Miss McKane's backhand push shot down the line - she brought it off repeatedly to win important rallies.

"Leading 5-4 in the final set, Mlle Lenglen was serving and went to 40-15. Brilliantly the English pair drew up to deuce. At 'vantage Mlle Lenglen served a ball to Miss McKane which the latter evidently deemed to be a fault. This opinion was shared by many spectators, and thus a great match ended a little unfortunately. Never before on the Riviera (nor for that matter in England) had there been such a high quality ladies' double. All four competitors, with the possible exception of Miss Ryan, were at their best, and it was a great personal triumph for Mrs Lambert Chambers, who had first won the [Wimbledon] championship twenty years ago, to be on a parity with the other three."

Draw note:

May Green is listed as Miss May Green by the London Times. Thus it is unlikely her first name is May. Having said that the Times does provide first names for the Maquay sisters.

The whole event is sold out in anticipation of a Lenglen-Mallory that fails to materialize. Be it poor form or a weak ankle Molla is upset in her first match here as some 2-3,000 look on in shock. The previous week as some cynics asserted that Lenglen withdrew out of fear of facing Mallory. Now it is Molla's turn, with some whispering she tanked on purpose to avoid a crushing defeat by Suzanne. Apparently unperturbed, Molla announces she will play on. Her only negative comment was about the officiating, with 3 or 4 close calls going against her.


The final score of 6-2 7-5 would normally indicate a close and exciting final, as few are able to even stretch Lenglen in singles. Instead play was lackluster, neither woman coming to net all all. Even the baseline play was devoid of interest as Kitty and Suzanne each waited for the other to make an error. The wet courts may have been a factor, dampening both the bounce of the ball and the spirit. Afterwards Kitty said, "I suppose I shall be thirty before I can win a set from her." Suzanne had her own challenges, being upset with fans who "even applaud when I make a double fault."


From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Alamanck" (1924): "Postponed on account of rain, the final between Mlle Lenglen and Miss McKane was decided before a large crowd. It was their third meeting within twelve months, but the court at Menton was much softer than the court at Brussels, and therefore the pace of the play could not be as fast. Nor was it acclereated by the obvious respect in which each player held her opponent, this self-consciousness giving an almost timid character to the rallies and reducing the length of drive for long periods to a second-rate standard.

"Only the fate of the second set was uncertain, and in that, having led 2-0 and then having lost the next three games to square the set at 4-4, Miss McKane was distinctly lucky not to win the all-important ninth game in which the champion, making a losing shot, got a net cord which was impossible to recover. As Miss McKane won the tenth game, she was entitled to remember this piece of ill-fortune. At the same time there is no doubt that the better player won on her merit. Safer on her backhand than Miss McKane, more resolute on the forehand when the opening presented itself, Mlle Lenglen showed in the crisis of the second set a fine match-winning temperament. She had her periods of depression, and one cannot declare definitely that, had she been attacked more consistenlty at close quarters on the slow surface, she would not have been in serious jeopardy; the opposing methods of Miss McKane were not difficult to anticipate and, given confidence, not difficult to combat.

"Mlle Lenglen opened the service and won the first two games. She was hitting every ball cautiously and receiving nothing severe in return. Meeting the champion's cut service with more confidence in the third game, Miss McKane won it from thirty, only to double fault in the fourth and to smash out in the fifth, thus finding herself 1-4 down. However, despite two double faults, she took the sixth game, her only remaining success in the set. Mlle Lenglen had played a waiting game to good purpose. Since her adversary did not venture in she plied her backhand with quiet cross drives, none of very good length but all leading up to an error of timing on the part of Miss McKane.

"At the beginning of the second set the English girl struck a more aggressive note, and, finding Mlle Lenglen unresponsive, went quickly to 2-0. Miss McKane had volleyed more, using with good effect the low push-volley, which interrupted just in time a ball that seemed to have passed her. But then, unwisely, in our opinion, she did not persist in these methods. She remained at the back of the court and lost the next three games after a sequence of long baseline exchanges in which each player was searching for a weakness in the other's backhand.

"Then Mlle Lenglen went to 4-3 and to within a point of 5-3. She was a little lucky to win the seventh game, for three winning drives by Miss McKane were just deflected over the line, but in the eighth game the luck was against her, for Miss McKane had a net cord from a volley which would have been returned. The champion's net cord in the ninth game and its consequences have already been mentioned. Miss McKane thoroughly deserved the tenth game, which she won after two deuces, but the effort brought a reaction, and the eleventh game was lost to love. Indeed, Mlle Lenglen took seven consecutive points, and was presented with an easy backhand volley to win the match. In her excitement she mistimed the ball.

"Thus reprieved, Miss McKane went brilliantly to deuce, but the end then came; the impression one had was that the moral effect of losing the ninth game was material to her play in the remainder of the match. Though the close character of the second set intrigued the public, the play in the whole contest did not reach the highest level. No doubt the day's postponement and the soft surface were to some extent responsible for the lack of decision about many of the strokes; also both players seemed to feel their responsibility and to qualify their enterprise accordingly."

Suzanne Lenglen: "I will beat her tomorrow, never fear."
Molla Mallory: "Well, we get a crack at the champion tomorrow"

Betting odds were at 5 to 1 in favor of Lenglen, with even money that Molla would not get 5 games.

* From "Ayres' Almanack" (1924): "The meeting of Mlle Lenglen and Mrs Mallory in the semi-final attracted considerable interest, although, in view of the relative form shown by the two players on the Riviera, little doubt was entertained about the result.

"At this, the fourth of their engagements, the champion had the satisfaction of winning two love sets, scoring 50 points to the 18 of Mrs Mallory. The tie lasted twenty-five minutes, and if it be said that the American champion hit with more confidence and with better length than in any of her previous singles matches in the South of France, the conclusive character of Mlle Lenglen's victory can be gauged. She did not overwhelm Mrs Mallory, nor can it be denied that many chances of scoring were unaccepted by the American champion because of faulty timing; nevertheless, the French girl demonstrated that her equipment of strokes is much superior to that of Mrs Mallory, while her strategic sense, trained by a wider experience, is more highly developed.

"Mrs Mallory's service was so innocuous that the champion could take the defensive in her drive each time. She only came to the net once, it being evident that good length and accurate placing from the back of the court were sufficient to win virtually all the rallies. Naturally she directed her strokes to Mrs Mallory's weaker backhand, and though the strain on this wing was borne with more security than previous matches had suggested, a wide fast return was usually successful."

Lenglen's win is so decisive that only 2 games went to deuce. Molla never even had a game point. She only won 8 points in the first set and 11 in the second. suzanne scored 7 winners to 2 for Molla. Molla made 19 errors in the net and 26 out to only 7 net errors and 10 out for Suzanne.

Overlooked in all of the ballyhoo was the coming out of young Lili de Alvarez of Spain, who was unlucky to draw veteran Elizabeth Ryan early in the event.

Lenglen's loss in the semis of the mixed doubles was her first in any match since she retired to Molla Mallory in the second round of the 1921 US Championships. She is gracious in defeat, throwing her arms around Ryan and declaring, "You played magnificently. One must lose sometime, and I prefer losing to you rather than anyone in the world."

Below is a full report on the match From "The Field", 29 March 1923:

"The champion's defeat was encountered in the semi-finals of the mixed doubles when she and Count Soumarokoff were opposing Randolph Lycett and Elizabeth Ryan. This match was naturally the pièce de résistance of the meeting, for though Mlle Lenglen could claim to be in a class by herself among the ladies, the fact that the Russian was short of practice and had only entered for the one event because the present was the 'third successive year' discounted this superiority and inclined the odds towards last year's finalists at Wimbledon. Thus there was a great throng around the court, those present including the King of Sweden and the Duke of Connaught.

"The match opened auspiciously for the home side. They led 3-1 and showed no lack of confidence. But their advantage proved to be illusive. Count Soumarokoff's unorthodox drive with its excessive top-spin had caused some initial dismay in the opposite camp. Balls thought to be sailing out of court were left; the two advancing volleyers found them landing well inside the baseline. Nor were Lycett and Miss Ryan able to able to volley those drives with their usual speed; [?] was imposed and the opportunity given for Mlle Lenglen to trip across and make a winning shot.

"However, familiarity began to breed contempt, and with Lycett reaching his best form the balance was soon adjusted and Soumarokoff's defects exposed. These proved to be a tendency to volley the ball up as distinct from a decisive blow, while the extra time required for all his strokes, made with the elbow bent, was of priceless value to the other pair; it gave them the additional second to get into position. They won the next five successive games; the whole complexion of the match had changed. But it was soon to alter again.

"Lycett declined both in accuracy and vigour to such an extent at the beginning of the second set that, though his partner continued to play well, Soumarokoff and Mlle Lenglen went to 5-2. Luckily Lycett recovered in time, and as in the first set his side won five games off the reel, going straight to victory.

"No blame can be attached to Mlle Lenglen for this result. She played superbly throughout and had the misfortune to be supported by a partner who was never at his best. The champion was the first to congratulate the winners on their success."

The Times indicarted a new floor had been laid down for this year's event. The men were playing for the Covered Court Championships of Europe.

"Miss [E] Beckingham has greatly improved, and is clever and severe at the net."

Edgington took a close final through better driving. The match saw a lot of net play from both women.
Her partner AW Asthalter used the pseudonym of "Dixie" in the mixed. There was an Andrew Asthalter of the United States active in the 1920s-the two may be one and the same.

Draw note:
*Agnes (=Mrs B Hillyard is Mrs Brame Hillyard, NOT Blanche Hillyard. Any relation Brame might have to George Hillyard (Blanche's spouse) is unclear.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lenglen caused a stir by fainting. She won her singles first, though both she and Mckane performed below par, the English star often made errors off the backhand and Suzanne made a high number of errors herself. She collapsed after the singles, but went on to win the mixed. By the time she went on court for her last final (the ladies doubles) Lenglen "seemed resigned to defeat from the start."

As Beamish's last shot flew by her Suzanne declared "I simply can't do it." She later declared it was "a silly stunt" to attempt 3 finals in one day, and vowed never to repeat it.

* From "Ayres' Almanack" (1924): "The champion [Suzanne Lenglen] and Mme Golding offered a weak resistance to Mrs Beamish and Miss McKane in the final of the ladies' doubles, but the English pair thoroughly deserved the fruits of their superior physical condition and their greater zeal. With Mrs Beamish more severe and more resourceful at the back of the court than Mme Golding the driving exchanges of these two governed the match, Miss McKane 'cutting in' and volleying down anything short or loose. Mlle Lenglen for once was out of the picture; it was clear, almost from the start, that she had reconciled herself to defeat."

Draw note:

ER Clark played under the alias of Miss K "Bridge".

Molla proves her fitness by winning 3 matches (the 2R through 4R) in one day. Beamish led 5-4 in the opening set of her QF vs Molla but lost steam. Molla took Geraldine's fast forehand drives and simply hit them back with interest. The American had many errors but also hit the majority of the winners.

Of the final the Times wrote: "She [Godfree] was the speedier of the two and her volleying was the better. Mrs Mallort made the mistake of getting too far inside the court for baseline play, a mistake caused by the slow surface, but leading to loss of position. The match, however, was a good exposition of what women can do in lawn tennis. Both, ladies, very rightly, drive on the run; both volley with caution as to the suitable occassion. The volley should be an end, not a means."

Draw Note:
Mrs Hals is Molla Mallory's sister.

Phyllis Covell (nee Howkins) has improved since resing in India, and gave Molla a test in the 1R, having a set point. The Times called Clayton's upset win over Mallory her best singles play ever. Mabel continued to excel in the final, where she often wrong footed Mrs Beamish by playing behind her. Clayton, up til now primarily known for doubles, also used the volley judiciously to finish off points.

The event ended in the disk with an unusually long mixed doubles final consisting of 52 games.

The Times carries an article on the attempt to standardize tennis balls. France uses a ball that is smaller and harder, and it doesn't bounce nearly as high as a British ball. This makes it bound fast. The American ball is machine made.

Lenglen is in tears at the end of her final because the crowd was clapping for her Golding more than her after a disputed line-call. Golding actually had the spectators in shock because she had an unheard of 4-0 lead in set two! The diva was so distraught she asked her father if she should continue. He told her to play on. Lenglen recovered to win six games runnign and the match. Afterwards Papa suggested she might boycott Paris in the future.

On odd incident happened in the 4R. Both Colyer and Austin were exhuasted after splitting sets and chose not to play a third. They decided it on the toss of a penny!

In the semis Ryan's serve and volley overcome Edgington. Both ladies use a slice drive. Edgington used an "underhand twist" while Ryan's chop is usually hit at waist level. Rain put off the other semi.

Saturday was bitterly cold. Satterwaite destroyed Mallory and won the first set of the final with fine down the line passing shots. Then she got drawn in by Ryan's drop shots. Elizabeth's dropper, "executed with the touch of a billiards player", was made evenmore effective by the weak serve of Satterwaite.

Kitty Mckane's fine net play decided the mixed final. One wonders if the backed up schedule affected Ryan, for the mixed final was her 5th match of the day.

Draw notes:

Branfoot or Branloot ????/ Look at Men's draw in Barrett's.
FMB Fischer's first name was Francis, but he always went by his initials "FMB".

There were two Indian brothers named Fyzee in the draw:
1. Ali Athar Fyzee (1883-1963)
2. Doctor Ali Hassan Fyzee (1879-1962)

Mrs Harvey is Gosling's partner in doubles. Ermyntrude Harvey (relation, if any, to Mrs Harvey unclear) partnered Satterwaite.
Miss NB Heath and her mixed partner NM Heath are probably siblings. (she is listed GB and he AUS by Wimbledon.com)
Molly Welsh listed as Mrs Robin Welsh by the Times.

The London Times is my source for the doubles draws. Note that the print is hard to read in some cases. I should like a good tennis almanack to double check some scores where a

Last year's runner-up Leslie Bancroft was unable to play due to an infected tooth. The British players are all arriving by steamer and arrive a day late. The Americans ladies default (one suspects out of courtesy), allowing the ladies to play second rounds matches right after getting off the boat. After ten days at sea they naturally need to get acclimated.

Brit Geraldine Beamish served underhanded here.

Molla Mallory wins her thrid consecutive Seabright event and takes permanent possession of the Cup.

At last the women have an event similar to the Davis Cup for men. Nationwide meets for women have been held in the past, but this event will become permanent and annual. The importance for the US women's event cannot be overstated, for the Cup will bring the top British women to the US on alternate years for 3 decades until travel by plane makes the event more international.

The 1923 Cup is the first event held in the newly constructed Forest Hills Stadium. The stadium hold 13,000 and is only the second tennis stadium in the world built of concrete, Wimbledon being the other.

The US easily sweeps to victory in trhe contest. Attendence is held down on the second day of play due to poor weather and the fact that it is a Monday.

Draw notes:

Mrs Docker, Miss Haymen, Mrs Jackson and Miss Kelly all hail from Queensland. Many of the unkwown male players in this year's event probably also hailed from Queensland.

*Mrs JL Briggs=nee Phyllis Moxon

*Margaret Haymen (see note below for Roe)

*Emily Dawson Roe (nee Haymen) married Arthur Stanley Roe on 22 January 1917. The official site incorrectly uses "Rose". Aussie papers list Mrs Roe as Mrs A. S. Roe. Judith (born by 1928), the only daughter of Dr and Mrs A.S. Roe, was married in 1948 to Eric Russell. The 3 Haymen daughters were the children of M. G. (Montague Granville) Haymen (died 1941), director of a Queenland Bank. Margaret Haymen (who wed Charles Clark (1902-1965) on 12 December 1928) and Nell Hayman (married to Englishman Timothy Patrick Honnor on 11 July 1937). Emily is our "Mrs Roe" in this draw. "Miss Haymen" is the second daughter Margaret.is is less certain.

Mrs H Turner=nee Beryl Spowers

-------------------------------------------------

Summary

Molesworth survived a match point against Lance in the semis. Lance's volleying won the first set 6-3 and her backhand was standing up well. Molesworth switched attack in the 2nd set to Lance's stronger wing, the forehand, which broke up Lance's rhythm. Winning the 2nd set 6-4 and streaking to 5-2, Lance made a final stand to reach match point at 6-5 40-30. On this point she played a near perfect drop shot, in which Molesworth charged in, just reached the ball on spooned it over for a clear winner. Lance's chance was gone, and Molesworth won the 3rd 8-6. Her opponent was again Boyd who recovered from a 1st set 1-6 beating to lead 3-1 40-30. But an appalling line call against Boyd demoralised her and Molesworth shot to 5-3. Despite a last desperate effort to retrieve the deficit, Boyd lost 6-1 7-5.

Mixed champion Horrie Rice was 51 years of age, finalist St John was 44.

Here's a piece on the semi-final of the mixed doubles event at the 1923 South of France Championships in Nice, one of Suzanne Lenglen's rare losses in any event in any tournament:

From "The Field", 29 March 1923

"The champion's defeat was encountered in the semi-finals of the mixed doubles when she and Count Soumarokoff were opposing Randolph Lycett and Elizabeth Ryan. This match was naturally the pièce de résistance of the meeting, for though Mlle Lenglen could claim to be in a class by herself among the ladies, the fact that the Russian was short of practice and had only entered for the one event because the present was the 'third successive year' discounted this superiority and inclined the odds towards last year's finalists at Wimbledon. Thus there was a great throng around the court, those present including the King of Sweden and the Duke of Connaught.

"The match opened auspiciously for the home side. They led 3-1 and showed no lack of confidence. But their advantage proved to be illusive. Count Soumarokoff's unorthodox drive with its excessive top-spin had caused some initial dismay in the opposite camp. Balls thought to be sailing out of court were left; the two advancing volleyers found them landing well inside the baseline. Nor were Lycett and Miss Ryan able to able to volley those drives with their usual speed; [?] was imposed and the opportunity given for Mlle Lenglen to trip across and make a winning shot.

"However, familiarity began to breed contempt, and with Lycett reaching his best form the balance was soon adjusted and Soumarokoff's defects exposed. These proved to be a tendency to volley the ball up as distinct from a decisive blow, while the extra time required for all his strokes, made with the elbow bent, was of priceless value to the other pair; it gave them the additional second to get into position. They won the next five successive games; the whole complexion of the match had changed. But it was soon to alter again.

"Lycett declined both in accuracy and vigour to such an extent at the beginning of the second set that, though his partner continued to play well, Soumarokoff and Mlle Lenglen went to 5-2. Luckily Lycett recovered in time, and as in the first set his side won five games off the reel, going straight to victory.

"No blame can be attached to Mlle Lenglen for this result. She played superbly throughout and had the misfortune to be supported by a partner who was never at his best. The champion was the first to congratulate the winners on their success."

An extract from "The Field" of 8 February 1923 concerning some of the handicap events at the Cannes Club tournament held at the end of January of that year:

"In addition to winning the men's handicap singles, Frederick (?) R. Scovel, with Mrs Winston Churchill, won the mixed doubles; owing four-sixths they beat Grigg and Miss Frost (three-sixths), 6-4, 6-1. Lady Beaverbrook and Miss Meakins, receiving a walkover in the final, won the ladies' doubles."

I think F.R. Scovel was the American player Frederick Roosevelt Scovel?
--

Lady Beaverbrook, née Gladys Henderson Drury, was the wife of the media tycoon/press baron and businessman William Maxwell Aitken. He was Canadian-born, but moved to England in 1910 and was knighted by King George V in 1911.

Any info on F.R. Scovel?



Yes. Your ID is a correct one. Frederick Roosevelt Scovel was a cousin of Teddy Roosevelt and married Vivian Sartoris, a grandaughter of President Ulysses S Grant, on 23 August 1902. The couple spent most of their time abroad. He died 27 July 1930 and Vivian dies at her villa on the Riviera in 1933.

And edited in Mark's contributions from May 4, which gives Christine Tyrell's first name which Wimbledon doesn't have !!

Venue: La Festa Club

From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1924): "So far as quality went the best match of the week was the final of the ladies' doubles, in which Mlle Lenglen and Miss Ryan found themselves in the quite unfamiliar position of being led 4-3 in the final set. Never before since they became [Wimbledon] champions had they lost a set, but the feat of Miss McKane and Mrs Lambert Chambers was due, not to any fortuitous circumstances, but to really brilliant play. They were aided in the last game of this set by two double faults by Miss Ryan, but they had worked up gallantly to this episode.

"Mrs Lambert Chambers showed how much she has advanced as a volleyer by smashing the lobs of her opponents into winning zones, while she made many low volleys of first-class quality. Also her oblique drives past the champion's backhand, when Mlle Lenglen was expecting a centre drive, influenced the capture of the set; another factor was Miss McKane's backhand push shot down the line - she brought it off repeatedly to win important rallies.

"Leading 5-4 in the final set, Mlle Lenglen was serving and went to 40-15. Brilliantly the English pair drew up to deuce. At 'vantage Mlle Lenglen served a ball to Miss McKane which the latter evidently deemed to be a fault. This opinion was shared by many spectators, and thus a great match ended a little unfortunately. Never before on the Riviera (nor for that matter in England) had there been such a high quality ladies' double. All four competitors, with the possible exception of Miss Ryan, were at their best, and it was a great personal triumph for Mrs Lambert Chambers, who had first won the [Wimbledon] championship twenty years ago, to be on a parity with the other three."

FI: Suzanne Lenglen d. Kathleen McKane (GBR) 6-2, 7-5*

* From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Alamanck" (1924): "Postponed on account of rain, the final between Mlle Lenglen and Miss McKane was decided before a large crowd. It was their third meeting within twelve months, but the court at Menton was much softer than the court at Brussels, and therefore the pace of the play could not be as fast. Nor was it acclereated by the obvious respect in which each player held her opponent, this self-consciousness giving an almost timid character to the rallies and reducing the length of drive for long periods to a second-rate standard.

"Only the fate of the second set was uncertain, and in that, having led 2-0 and then having lost the next three games to square the set at 4-4, Miss McKane was distinctly lucky not to win the all-important ninth game in which the champion, making a losing shot, got a net cord which was impossible to recover. As Miss McKane won the tenth game, she was entitled to remember this piece of ill-fortune. At the same time there is no doubt that the better player won on her merit. Safer on her backhand than Miss McKane, more resolute on the forehand when the opening presented itself, Mlle Lenglen showed in the crisis of the second set a fine match-winning temperament. She had her periods of depression, and one cannot declare definitely that, had she been attacked more consistenlty at close quarters on the slow surface, she would not have been in serious jeopardy; the opposing methods of Miss McKane were not difficult to anticipate and, given confidence, not difficult to combat.

"Mlle Lenglen opened the service and won the first two games. She was hitting every ball cautiously and receiving nothing severe in return. Meeting the champion's cut service with more confidence in the third game, Miss McKane won it from thirty, only to double fault in the fourth and to smash out in the fifth, thus finding herself 1-4 down. However, despite two double faults, she took the sixth game, her only remaining success in the set. Mlle Lenglen had played a waiting game to good purpose. Since her adversary did not venture in she plied her backhand with quiet cross drives, none of very good length but all leading up to an error of timing on the part of Miss McKane.

"At the beginning of the second set the English girl struck a more aggressive note, and, finding Mlle Lenglen unresponsive, went quickly to 2-0. Miss McKane had volleyed more, using with good effect the low push-volley, which interrupted just in time a ball that seemed to have passed her. But then, unwisely, in our opinion, she did not persist in these methods. She remained at the back of the court and lost the next three games after a sequence of long baseline exchanges in which each player was searching for a weakness in the other's backhand.

"Then Mlle Lenglen went to 4-3 and to within a point of 5-3. She was a little lucky to win the seventh game, for three winning drives by Miss McKane were just deflected over the line, but in the eighth game the luck was against her, for Miss McKane had a net cord from a volley which would have been returned. The champion's net cord in the ninth game and its consequences have already been mentioned. Miss McKane thoroughly deserved the tenth game, which she won after two deuces, but the effort brought a reaction, and the eleventh game was lost to love. Indeed, Mlle Lenglen took seven consecutive points, and was presented with an easy backhand volley to win the match. In her excitement she mistimed the ball.

"Thus reprieved, Miss McKane went brilliantly to deuce, but the end then came; the impression one had was that the moral effect of losing the ninth game was material to her play in the remainder of the match. Though the close character of the second set intrigued the public, the play in the whole contest did not reach the highest level. No doubt the day's postponement and the soft surface were to some extent responsible for the lack of decision about many of the strokes; also both players seemed to feel their responsibility and to qualify their enterprise accordingly."

From "Ayre's Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1924)

By Arthur Wallis Myers

"Molla Mallory, Mabel Clayton, Helen Wills and Eleanor Goss came to the semi-finals; the first two quite easily, the last two only after a perilously close fight. Mrs Mallory was unlucky in that Geraldine Beamish retired through indisposition in the third round; she needed and did not get a tight, exacting match before she met Miss Wills in the final. Mrs Clayton was always too quick on the ball and too vigorous in stowing it away in the forehand for Leslie Bancroft, who had been 'laid up' since her return from Europe.

"Miss Wills had an extraordinary match with Kathleen McKane. The latter won the opening set as surely as she lost the second, but since Miss Wills went forward to lead 5-1 in the final set the reader will be right if he assumes that she had found a way to check Miss McKane's success, and, as in the international match, was proving that her backhand strokes had more aggression and accuracy than Miss McKane's, while her service was unquestionably superior. It would also have been near the mark if it had been assumed that Miss Wills faltered a little when victory was so near, lost both her length and her accuracy, and almost appeared to have thrown the match away.

"But it is necesary to explain that Miss McKane, once the thought of progressive defeat left her mind, braced with great resolution and won the four games in succession which brought her level with some finely-pointed shots in which the well-angled volley shone forth. Also her service increased in speed and resolution; it had previously been a relatively weak stroke. But after 5-5 it was Miss McKane who failed, and Miss Wills who 'came back'. The former served two double faults in the eleventh game - a fatal concession at such a crisis; the latter never served better than in the twelfth game, which decided the issue.

"If Miss McKane had won the match - her great recovery, when all seemed lost, almost entitled her to win it - I doubt whether she would now be the champion of the United States. Mrs Mallory might have beaten her again, or even Miss Goss, who at that time still survived. But Miss Wills was almost certain to beat Mrs Mallory in the final if she reproduced the form which had won her (at one stage) eleven games out of fourteen against Miss McKane.

"Phyllis Covell was decidedly unlucky not to beat Miss Goss. Had there been no ten minutes' rest after the second set the tactical and moral ascendancy which she had then gained would, I had little doubt at the time, have carried her on to safe victory in the third set. She was showing remarkable powers of anticipation, had command of her ground strokes, and was coming to volley just at the proper time and (when in) was applying the finishing touch, never with arrogance, but always with decision.

"And then in the ever-close final set, when every ace was influential, there was more than one faulty line decision - or so they appeared to the observer - against Mrs Covell. Miss Goss saw one of them and, without ostentation, purposefully lost the next stroke; but these unfortunate incidents (they have happened at Wimbledon and in Paris, and cannot be definitely ensured against anywhere) had a subconscious effect on Mrs Covell's play for the rest of the match. She served a costly double fault, and she missed one or two chances after openings had been created. Yet Miss Goss had earned her victory by sterling play. She showed none of that tendency to 'fall down' over easy balls that, with all her modern equipment, had marred her play on the Riviera and in England.

"Even though Miss Wills beat her, 6-4, 6-0, in the semi-final, the score in no way does justice to her fighting persistence, nor to the high quality of almost every rally. The match, indeed, was about as good a modern ladies' single as you could wish to see; every stroke in the game was played.

"Mrs Mallory beat Mrs Clayton for the third time, but she had some trouble to take the opening set at 6-4. This was a characteristic Mallory triumph - sheer weight of drive and industrious court covering bearing down an opponent who, against such inexorable tenacity, cuold not maintain her accuracy and had no volleying equipment to support her drives.

"The final round was one-sided. In each of the two sets Miss Wills won 31 strokes to the 17 of Mrs Mallory. This does not mean that Miss Wills was nearly twice as good as the holder. It means that after Mrs Mallory had led 2-1, Miss Wills, having shaken off a natural nervousness, dominated the situation. She was fortunate in that Mrs Mallory, for once, seemed to lose her inherent buoyancy and some of her concentration, so essential to her success.

"As net umpire (my duties were of the lightest) I had a good opportunity of watching faces, and I saw that of the holder strayed occasionally between the rallies in the direction of Hazel Wightman, who, the best woman strategist in America, had, before the match, coached Miss Wills, as, of course, she was perfectly entitled to do and would quite naturally do to a young player of her own California. But if we agreed that Mrs Mallory was not at her best, our conviction is sure that Miss Wills not only deserved her conclusive triumph but had earned it by superior strokes and greater versatility. She won three love games in the first set; indeed, on going from 1-2 to 5-2 she lost only one point. In the second set there were three deuce games, but the sixth game of the second set was won by Wills after her opponent led 40-15."
