Please e-mail or private message any results I'm missing, or post them in the "Grand Slam Results" thread, and I'll give credit and post them here. Any feedback regarding unusual events, match points, incomplete names, etc. are also welcome.


Many thanks to my Aussie specialists Andrew Tas, Louloubelle, and Gee Tee (who provided many hard to find names) for all of their hard work.

Enjoy.

From 1905 until 1926 the Aussie was known as the Australasian-with New Zealand hosting some years. The women didn't get a national title until 1922. Before 1922 the most prestigious event for women was the New South Wales Open. An early winner, Rose Payten, was very famous. Because of the long distances involved she only journeyed out of Australia once to compete.

Below is the list of men only Australasian championships. Women competed in some of these events as state championships held concurrently with the men's national title. Evidence for an early women's Australasian title is totally lacking other than foreign sources, which probably confused the state title for a national one.

1905-Melbourne, Nov 21 to 26.
1906-New Zealand, Christchurch, on Boxing Day. Final on Dec 31.
1907-Brisbane. August(ALT lists it as September)
1908-Sydney. American Fred Alexander in OZ for Davis Cup.
1909-Perth. October
1910-Adelaide, March 15-19
1911-Melbourne-The Argus reports on final.
1912-New Zealand, Hastings, North Island. No Aussies.
1913-Perth. November.
1914-Melbourne.
1915-Brisbane
World War one suspends event until 1919.
1919-(played in Sydney in late January of 1920!).

Draw notes and resolves:

The official site does not have the complete draw for any of the five events. It also lists our 2 missing Mixed QF results as byes, clearly an oversight. It also has an incorrect doubles semifinal result. All results stemming from this site should be double-checked.

Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th washed out and tournament didn't finish until Saturday 9th December. The backup in play explains the defaults in the doubles events.

The Sydney Morning Herald, in its Dec 9 edition, indicated that Miss Lance had to default in the women's doubles and the mixed with her partner Henderson. The reason given was her departure for New Zealand. Note that the rand Slam book and official Aussie sites have a score for this semi.However, unless these scores can be verified in another source (such as anewspaper) the default in the semis of the doubles is the likely score. See the following:
http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/arti...ore*%7C*ignore*

Names:
*Many sources use the name John Clemenger. Jack was his nickname. For now I'm going with Jack.

*Wilfred Bruce Dive went by his middle name.

*Peg Menzies (in the mixed draw) in newspapers as D Menzies. Miss D Menzies is not 'Peg'. Miss AG 'Peg' Menzies was a junior NSW player in the 1930s.

*Some sources list Gladys Paterson (rather than Grace Paterson). The SMH uses Patterson and Paterson. GeeTee writes that the 1922 entrant here is Gladys Paterson, daughter of "Banjo" Paterson, the famous writer of "Waltzing Matilda." Other newspaper sources thrughout 1922 back this up. See http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/arti...ore*%7C*ignore*

*Per GeeTee: "I suspect Miss ROCK (1922) is a Sydney University (circa 1918) tennis player."

*Miss Schultze (sometimes spelled differently) could be Marjorie Schultze (born 1894, Mrs Bertram BM Webb from 1930) but no definite proof.

* Mrs GB Stevens is most likely Mrs George B Stevens (nee Cora Smith) but this is not verifiable at this time.

* The official site has Lorna Utz. It is wrong. It is Gwen (Gwendolyn). There were two Utz's. Lorna Utz (nee Bull-listed in the 1922 singles draw) was maried to Leslie Utz in 1924. Gwen (nee Chiplin) was married to her mixed partner H. S. "Barney" Utz. This is the pair that traveled to England and played Wimbledon in 1925. Major thanks go out to GeeTee for pointing this out.

* Miss H Webber was from New South Wales.

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

Summary

Molesworth's variety, power and precision stood her in good stead during the tournament. She defeated Utz who was a crafty tactician, but her courtcraft failed against Molesworth's power and versatility. Boyd survived in the other semi despite being 2-4 down in each set against Lance. In the final Molesworth played the bigger points better as Boyd had several set points at 7-6 in the 2nd set. According to the Adelaide Advertiser "The final of the ladies singles...was throughly enjoyed by all. The rallies were long and frequent, and the quality high class. Miss Molesworth's service and backhand were superior to those of Miss Boyd." Boyd excelled in crosscourt forehands, but Mall's crosscourt backhand winners were more frequent.

Gray and Lloyd held a match point in the ladies QF with Forbes-Smith and Lance. Lance then had to default in the next match (and the mixed) to go to New Zealand.

The doubles final was most exciting. The NSW pair of St George/Utz led 4-3. The next game (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=224499#), with Utz serving, had spectators in a fever pitch, as deuce was called 16 times. Boyd/Molesworth won the key game and the minutes later the title. "Mrs Utz played the game of her life", while Mall set up Boyd at net with her great returns. Boyd was noticeably tired from the singles final.

5,000 came on finals (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=224499#) day. Earlier week figures were between 2 and 3,000.

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)

*GeeTee notes that Miss W Kelly probably equals Winifred "Winnie" Kelly.

*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 AS 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

AL North=Dr Allan Lindsay "Dick" North.

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

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.

Draw Notes:

Rain on the last few days delayed the event-it concluded on Wednesday, January 30.

The first year seeding was used.

Meryl O'Hara Wood was the #7 seed in singles but not in draw. Did she default before the event started? Note th edefault of #5 seed Addison, presumably after the draw was already made.

* The score from this 1R doubles between Gwen Hack/Flora Rowe d. Mrs GB Goodes/Helen Outhwaite may be may be 6-3 3-6 7-5. For now I am sticking with the score from the Argus, as it is a primary source.

Adela Gwendoline Hack went by "Gwen"

Mrs Dorothy Agnes Hope is the sister of Richard (Bob) Schlesinger. She wed Rodney Hope on 18 August 1921 in South Yarra.

Vera Howett listed as Miss VM Howett.

Mrs JS Simpson= nee Miss JG Keltie of Tasmania.

Nell Thyne listed as HM Thyne

Mrs J Todd= nee Marjorie Mountain, Md to a Mr J Todd in November 1923.

-------------------------------------------------
Summary:

Molesworth was the favorite again this year but fell in the quarters to Kath Le Messurier 9-7 3-6 6-8. This match was different to the usual women's matches of this time as both women drove fiercely from beginning to end. Le Mesurier who had improved greatly over the last 12 months led in every set. Molesworth pegged her back from 3-5 to win the first. Le Messurier's off-backhand caused problems for Molesworth, jamming her on the backhand side, to give her the second set and two match points at 5-2 in the 3rd. Molesworth hit her away back to 5-5 but Le Messurier steadied to win 8-6.

A young 20 y/o Daphne Akhurst won her quarterfinal with one reporter getting quite carried away:
"Miss Akhurst an artist to her fingertips, belied her delicate Victorian appearance (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=224499#) that suggested she had slipped out of one of Jane Austen's novels by sifting cayenne pepper shots from a never-failing supply.

Sylvia Lance recovered from a bad start to beat the Victorian Mrs. Todd 16 64 61 and Boyd beat Simpson to complete the semi lineups. Boyd carried this form to beat Akhurst by pinning the Sydney youngster against the backnetting with the depth and power of her forehand, the most feared shot in Australian women's tennis. Lance defeated Le Mesurier 6-2 6-2 by adapting her game (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=448313#) to the soft court by slicing and chopping, in which the lack of pace told against le Mesurier who handled Molesworth's power the round before."

Lance looked to be in full control against Boyd when she led 6-3 3-0 and 40-15, but Boyd struggled back to duece and then after 6 more dueces took the game and the next 5 to win the set. This effort took its toll and Lance gained a slight advantage at the start of the 3rd and held on to 6-4.

It was a tense and interesting contest, but the same reporter who found Akhurst such a delight was not that impressed:
"As a spectacle the match fell short of realising the requirements of championship tennis (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=448313#) of the tonic quality which, reinforced by vigour, carries the hallmark of high distinction. Both players (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=224499#) were over-cautious and bent on making a success of the engagement in an entirely unbrilliant way. There was some evidence of the artistic quality that appeals to the doctrinaire or dilettante but too much harmless hitting of the mercerised near silk quality to provide the exciting interest associated with an inspiriting contest."

We have this great summary thanks to Louloubelle


..and From AustinRunner comes interesting instructions from the organizers of the 1924 Australasian Championships:

"The first Australasian championship meeting to be held under the new conditions in Melbourne from January 19 to January 28* will comprise seven events only - the singles, doubles, and mixed, women's singles and doubles, and junior (boys) singles and doubles; each event carrying with it for 12 months the title of championship of Australasia. The principle conditions are as follows:-
(1) Entries must be made on the prescribed form; and when entrance fees are payable they must accompany all entries. Any holder of a championship of the previous year, if wishing to compete, must enter and play through.
(2) No entry will be accepted from any player residing in Australia unless such player be a member of a club affiliated to a State Association or a member of such association.
(3) The committee reserves the right to refuse the entry of any player, or to determine if such player is not eligible to enter, or has not the necessary ability to compete, and shall not be required to give a reason.
(4) In all events the draw will be seeded by the committee in accordance with the rules.
(5) Play shall be continuous from the first service till the match be concluded, provided that after the third set - or when women take part, the second set - either player is entitled to a rest which shall not exceed 10 minutes.
(6) Entries for all events will close at 5 p.m. on Saturday evening January 5 with the secretary of the L.T.A.V., Mr. J. F. Koch, at the club house, Glenferrie Road, Kooyong.

There appears to exist in the mind of many players (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=448313#) doubt as to who is eligible to enter. Owing to its being a championship meeting pure and simple, it is certainly not intended to accept entries from anyone who may come along; otherwise the events, or the preliminary rounds in them, would become a farce. It is intended to receive entries from all A grade players of both sexes, and possibly from the best of the B grade, and from any promising juniors, the committee finally determining who are eligible. Should any entries be refused on account of the players not being considered of sufficient standard to compete, the entrance fees will be refunded."

Draw notes:

The Mrs Harper who partners M Holt in the doubles is not Sylvia Lance Harper, who partners Akhurst.

Sylvia Lance has married since last year's event, She is now Mrs RR Harper.

Per GeeTee the spelling for Iris D Woodd is not a typo.

As late as the quarterfinal of the ladies doubles Dot Weston was listed as being without a partner. The Sydney Herald has "Dot Weston and partner". This goes a good way towards explaining the lack of match in the 2R.

-------------------------------------------------
Summary:

Akhurst won her 1st Australasian title at the age of 21. She struggled past Wilson in an early round, a rival from her school days but her fitness (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=448618#), speed around the court, hard and low hitting as well as willingness to attack the net earned her an easy passage to the final after that. Esne Boyd struggled in her quarterfinal against Marjorie Cox (later to become Mrs. Jack Crawford) falling behind 3-5 in the 3rd, but winning the final set 9-7. Boyd then handled Sylvia Harper's (Lance) cut shots with ease in the semis, 6-2 6-3 to face Akhurst in the final.

Boyd's game (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=448618#) plan was clear from the first point, to attack at all costs. She did it brilliantly in the first set, hitting deep to the corners and coming to the net to smash away Akhurst's lobs. 6-1 to Boyd. She relaxed ever so slightly in the 2nd and Akhurst's superior strength, technique and in the end of a close set, her temperament gave her an 8-6 advantage to level the match.

A tiring Boyd fought hard to reach 4-1 in the decider, but Akhurst steadied and took the final five games.

In an early round match Meaney upset Le Messurier. Kath recovered from 1-4 down in the final set and had a match point, but Meaney's ball, carried by the wind (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=448618#), hit smack on the line.

Summary:

Akhurst dominated the Australasian titles in Adelaide. Shaking off a persistent knee injury suffered during this overseas tour, Akhurst won the title without dropping a set. There was an air of finality about the whole championships, with Akhurst thumping Boyd 6-1 6-3. The last game of the final epitomised the women's singles as a whole. Akhurst won it to love and served a centre-line ace on the final point.

Draw Notes:

Ursula Bere usually listed as MU Bere.

Miss Hopkins was from Victoria.

Miss McDougall (in doubles draw) was from Western Australia

Minnie Richardson listed as MU Richardson

Per Andrew Tas. "There was a B Parsons playing in Melbourne and country Victoria from 1924 to 1928. The local newspapers of the time also have B Parsons listed.". Thus it seems very doubtful that this player equal Pauline Spencer-Parsons.

Daphne Akhurst's default in singles altered the doubles draws. Seeds were kept the same-with O'Hara Wood taking her place in the doubles and Youtha Anthony replacing Akhurst in the mixed.

Newspapers refer to Lum as SG (Stanley Gordon) Lum-giving no indication he is of Chinese heritage. His Chinese name was Pao-hua Lum, and he later played Davis Cup for China.
---------------------------------------------

Summary:

The first year at Kooyong and the first year it was called the Australian. Before 1927 it was officially the Australasian. Akhurst's early default paves the way for Boyd to finally win after 5 straight defeats in the final.

It was only right that 1927 should be Esna Boyd's year. The Australian women's titles had been held five times, and five times Boyd had been runner-up. She had one piece of luck along the way to the 1927 title, Daphne Akhurst was forced through illness to forfeit to Dorothy Weston in an early round. Even though Boyd had beaten Akhurst in the New South Wales final that year 3-6 6-4 6-3 (after Akhurst had lead a set and 4-2) it made Boyd's chances of capturing her first Australasian title that greater.

Boyd had an easy run to the final defeating Dot Bellamy and Louie Bickerton to face Sylvia Harper in the final. Harpers run wasn't as easy. She recovered from a slow start to defeat Marjorie Cox 1-6 6-3 6-3 in the quarter finals but her spin and guile was too much for Queenslander Mrs. Turner (who defeated Weston) in the semis.

Boyd began the final against Harper in an unusually tentative and defensive frame of mind. In the first set she allowed Harper to dictate terms which meant that Harper was cutting and chopping away until an opportune moment occurred to advance to the net where she made many winners with her safe and secure volleys. After seeing the first set slip away Boyd realised that she had to hit out, or face certain defeat. Hit out she did utilising her flat hard forehand and superior court movement to defeat her South Yarra teammate quite easily in the end 5-7 6-1 6-2.

4,000 witnessed the Saturday women's final. Other finals, including the men's singles and mixed, were held on Monday.

Pictures from the Melbourne Argus depict spectators on outside courts sitting on the grass upon low hills adjoining the courts.

Draw Notes:

Birdie Bond=Mrs E Bond
Floris Conway = Floris St-George (Mrs Roland Conway)
Some papers list Mrs Rischbieth nee Eileen Beresford ) as Rischbith.
Mrs O Waddington=nee Millie Mitchell.

Molesworth, Messurier, Weston and Bond were nominated by their states but apparently not seeded. There were 8 men's seeds in contrast to four women's seeds.
---------------------------------------------

Summary:

The women had the courts to themselves until late in the first week because of the arrival of the French Davis Cup team. Thus when the women's singles fial was held on the 27th the men were still early in their event.

Akhurst's return to the Australian titles emphasized the gap between her and the other Australian women players. With Boyd being superior to the other women she easily made the finals again, however lost the final to Akhurst 5-7 2-6. It was actually a keen contest until 2-all in the second, when the strain began to tell and Boyd's game fell away dramatically. The local paper reported that Akhurst "repeatedly returned serve across court for an outright winner". Akhurst completed her second triple crown, taking the doubles with Boyd and the mixed with Jean Borotra, who also won three titles that year.

A controversy occurred in the semis when O'Hara-Wood was footfaulted several times. Many felt it was unfair to enforce this rule (apparently not called previously) at such an important stage in the event.

Summary:
During 1928 Akhurst stamped herself as one of the premier players in women's tennis. Despite a lack of any regular competition internationally she travelled overseas to reach the quarters at the French. She then had a great run at Wimbledon to reach the semis, defeating Helen Jacobs 8-6 in the 3rd on the way. She met Spanish star Lily de Alvarez on one of her magical days and was beaten. At the end of 1928 she was rated by high ranking tennis authorities the no. 3 player in the world.She captured her 4th Australian title in 1929 defeating good friend and doubles partner Louie Bickerton in a final described as a 'rare treat'.

Bickerton had been in good form all week beating Le Mesurier and Cox to reach her first final. Akhurst breezed in the final also without the loss of a set.

The final was a match of long baseline rallies, but not of the sort of slow, safe play which sometimes characterised women's matches of the era. Both players hit out for the lines and, knowing each others games intimately, the level of anticipation was very high. Akhurst eventually triumphed 6-1 5-7 6-2, and fittingly the two women teamed up for the women's title. She teamed up with Gar Moon of Australia to win her third triple crown.

Summary (courtesy of Louloubelle)
Before the 1930 titles Akhurst announced that she would be marrying shortly and would confine her championship tennis in the future to doubles events. Kath Le Mesurier gave her such a hard match in the quarters that Akhurst shook hands after winning 6-1 3-6 6-4 and collapsed to the ground in exhaustion.

Akhurst's opponent in the final, Sylvia Harper - victor over Mall Molesworth and Louie Bickerton - was now in the veteran class and not in the same league as Akhurst, but she extended her to the limit on this occasion. The first set saw Akhurst assaulting Harper's backhand, but it wasn't until the 18th game that the tactic bore fruit. Harper then switched to a more aggressive brand of tennis which gathered her the 2nd set 6-2 and took her to 4-0 in the 3rd. Always a good player in a crisis, Akhurst increased the tempo of the game, hit out for the lines and, with Harper tiring and losing her length, took the final set 7-5. The 38 game match remains the longest Australian women's final on record.

She married Roy Cozens in February 1930 and, true to her word, played no more major singles events. She died suddenly in early 1933, leaving her husband and 6 month old son. The whole of the tennis world mourned the passing of one of it's most attractive, popular and successful players, at the young age of 29.

Akhurst's best friend Louie Bickerton would marry Cozens after Daphne's death.

Love was in the air during the mixed doubles-both pairs of finalists would later go on to wed each other.

Summary:

Corrie Buttsworth was a suprising winner in 1931. She seemed to arrive at the top of Australian women's tennis out of nowhere, being the only dual Australian winner never to have won a state singles title anywhere.

A strong thick-set woman from Sydney, she was addicted to chopping the ball, the drop shot being magnificent and was extremely quick around the court. She was one of those rare players who preferred to manoeuvre opponents out of position by running them up and back on the court rather from side to side.
Coming into the 1931 championships in Sydney her prospects did not look that good. She had only reached the quarterfinals of the Victorian the previous month. The sentimental favorite was Marjorie Cox, now Mrs. Jack Crawford who during the 1920's had won the championships of Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales but the Australian had always eluded her. With Akhurst retired from singles, Boyd in Scotland and Harper past her prime, it was thought that the No. 1 spot was hers for the taking.

However Crawford looked rather vulnerable in the quarterfinals against junior sensation Joan Hartigan. Her greater experinece was the key in a 6-4 4-6 6-4 victory. She was given no respite in the semis, with Kath Le Mesurier leading 3-1 in the 3rd set and holding nine points for 4-1. Even so Le Mesurier reached 5-2 before Crawford finally wore her down 3-6 6-2 7-5.
The other semi between Buttsworth and Sylvia Harper was equally dramatic. Harper attacked the net most effectively in the first set, cutting of Buttsworth's rising sliced shots to take it 6-0. But Harper, now 35 years of age, was unable to maintain the full vigour of her attack. At 4-5 in the 2nd set and set point to Buttsworth, Harper charged in after a drop-shot, pulled a muscle in her leg and was unable to continue the match. The scoreline to Buttsworth read 0-6 6-4 forfeit.

In the final Buttsworth nullified Crawford's driving strength by enticing her to the net with short drives and then either passing her cross-court or tossing back over her head. Crawford could not find the answer, although she pulled back from 1-5 in the 3rd and saved a match point at 3-5 before Buttsworth ran out the winner at 1-6 6-3 6-4.

Draw notes:

Esna Boyd Robertson withdraws when her mother dies on the eve of the event. This means redoing some parts of the draw, as she was originally slated to partner Meryl O’Hara Wood in the doubles as the #1 seeds and Harada in the mixed. Junior Nancy Lewis plays with Wood in doubles and Edna Collinson partners Harada.

Christobel Finlayson is captain of the Hyde Park Tennis team.

From the Adelaide Mail:
5,000 attend the finals. Police are needed to control the overflow of spectators. In fact record attendance all week is dampened only by rain on a couple of days.

Buttsworth was able to rededicate herself to tennis some 18 months ago when her six year old daughter Margaret came of age to attend school.Corrie’s lobs scored at times, but her real killer was a chop shot off the backhand that often just cleared the net and died.

Girl champion Nancy Lewis, aged 18, is a second year medical student at Melbourne University. The Mail notes that she is “tall, slim, and particularly retiring. She has an almost limitless number of strokes….She has played tennis as long as she can remember.”

On the social scene all three of the visiting Japanese loved to dance. At one party several female players joined in, Mrs Crawford dancing “the blues” with Satoh.


Truda Cox from Victoria
The Melbourne Argus confirms the name for Joyce Lillecrapp (there is no "e" on the end)
The Mail renders McGrath’s first name as “Molly” rather than “Mollie”.
Stevenson and Tonkin juniors from Victoria
Joyce Williams was a junior from NSW.
Jean Wilson from South Australia

RRB Barbour=Robert Barbour
AW Knight=Allan Walton Knight.

Summary (courtesy of Louloubelle)

20 year old Joan Hartigan won the Australian title in 1933. Suffering from a leg strain she nearly was forced to withdraw from the tournament which featured many great matches.

Marjory Crawford was extended to 6-3 2-6 9-7 by Victorian junior Dot Stevenson who led 5-2 in the 3rd but played too safe in the final stages. Veteran Mall Molesworth prevailed against Gladys Toyne and defending champion Corrie Buttsworth showed she would be in contention again, demolishing Youtha Anthony 6-2 6-0. Tasmanian Mrs. Bond used lobs and passing shots to defeat American Midge Van Ryn 6-4 3-6 6-3 to then be given a walkover by Crawford to reach the quarter finals. Hartigan scrapped by veteran Mall Molesworth 4-6 8-6 9-7 a match featuring a host of clean winners from both players.
Hartigan seemed nervous in her semi against Hoddle-Wrigley and lost the first set 4-6. However her forehand started to find its mark and she settled down for a 4-6 6-0 6-4 victory. Emily Westacott was a losing semifinalist for a 3rd year in a row. Faced with a heavy court and a softballing opponent, Westacott's power game was nullified and she lost 9-7 3-6 6-3.

Hartigan encountered stiff resistance in the final, but her power of her forehand was enough to deny Buttsworth's craftiness and patience, 6-4 6-3.

Draw notes:

A Lewis = Nancy Lewis
McTaggett = Elizabeth Sloan (Mrs RE McTaggett)

The official Aussie site has E Peach. From this I am deducing she is Elizabeth "Beth" Peach

The official site uses "Muriel' Wilson rather than "Muff".
The official site has Lorna Utz as Norman Peach's mixed partner-double check.

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

Summary:

Mall Molesworth, age 39, made a stunning run to the final. In the final she was unable to beat her 21 year old opponent, but she won the doubles crown. She is the oldest singles finalist and doubles champ on record in Oz.

Hartigan's defence in Sydney was not as arduous as the year before. She showed how much her game had improved under the coaching of Jim Willard, reaching the final without dropping a set. In the other half of the draw, New South Wales country champion Muff Wilson defeated Westacott 2-6 10-8 6-3, with Westacott being too fearless on her drives going for a clean winner on every shot. Muff survived a match point in moving on. Wilson found Molesworth a different proposition in the semifinal. The former champion broke up Wilson's game by mixing short chips and deep drives to win 6-4 7-5. If she had tried this tactic against Hartigan in the final she might have had more success than she did by trying to outhit and out-run someone so much younger. It was 11 years since Molesworth's first national final, and she could not keep the pace with her stronger and more mobile opponent, going down 1-6, 4-6.

2,500 came for the quaterfinals.

Draw notes:

#2 seed Joan Hartigan withdrew due to flu. Originally slated to play doubles with Dorothy Round, her place in doubles is taken by Thelma Coyne.

Alma Cox=AC Cox

The doubles final was halted by darkness at one set apiece. The next day (Monday) it was restarted from scratch, the British pair winning in straights.

The #5 seeding for Whittaker/Moon is an educated guess. All the other mixed seedings have been confirmed. The Melbourne Argus lists only 4 seeds for the mixed, but the Aussie web site has seeds to #8.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Summary:

Round becomes the first foreigner to walk away with the Aussie women's crown. The Wimbledon champ waltzed through until the final, in which she had to recover after dropping the first set. At 3-4 in the third Lyle had a chance at 0-40, but Round won 5 straight points and soon won.

Westacott had upset the British Dearman with her fearsome forehand, but it wasn't enough vs. Round in the semis.

It was a minor miracle the event was held at all. One week before, torrential rain had left Kooyong under 30 feet of water. The courts were deemed soggy but playable.

Dorothy Round came to Australia as the reigning Wimbledon champion having defeated Helen Jacobs in a memorable final when at 3 all in the third set, she had staked everything on an all out attack which carried her to victory. Australian fans saw a highly gifted all-court player. Her sweeping ground shots were hit flat and hard, her backhand being the stronger side and had fine touch for volleys and the dropshot. A Sunday school teacher and devoutly religious, she always refused to play on Sundays, a fact which caused French and American officials to undertake a bit of rescheduling when she was playing in their countries. It was not a problem in Australia, which did not yet condone public sport on the Sabbath.

Round won the championships of Victoria, New South Wales and came into the national titles in Melbourne a firm favorite, especially as the defending champion Joan Hartigan was absent through illness.

Round encountered graceful local girl May Blick in the quarterfinals, winning 6-4 6-0, her tardy start attributed by the press to Round's "weekend by the sea which had taken her mind off tennis". Also in the quarters, Nancy Lyle, another of the visiting British girls (daughter of British parliamentarian Sir Leonard Lyle, who had been a successful tournament player) was too good for Louie Bickerton 6-2 8-6. Bickerton had tried to out-drive Lyle in the first set before coming to the realization that Lyle, like Round, thrived on pace. She softballed her in the second set and reached set point at 5-4 before Lyle steadied to come through in straight sets.

Emily Westacott salvaged some honor for Australia by flummoxing another British girl Evelyn Dearman with her curling kicking serve to win 9-7 7-5. The Age reporter who covered the match commended Westacott for her "unorthodox joyous wallops" and added that the crowd cheered her to the end because they love "a gallant swatter".

Nell Hopman did her best in the semifinals against Lyle to wear down and frustrate the English girl with consistency. But Lyle held too great an edge in power and placement, though she did fall into Hopman's game of interminable backhand to backhand rallies in the second set, before scoring 6-1 7-5.

Westacott was plainly overawed by Round, not hitting out with her usual abandon. She did manage, however, to lead 4-2 in the first set before Round increased the length, speed and placement of her ground shots. The score of 6-4 6-2 accurately reflected the difference between the players on the day.

In the final, Round once again got off to a slow start, spraying her shots, moving sluggishly and experiencing difficulties with her ball toss on service. Lyle, at the peak of her form, took the first set 6-1. By the second set Round's much vaunted fitness was standing her good stead in the excessive heat, and she was winning almost all the vital points. At 3-all in the third set, Round showed her quality by overcoming a love-40 deficit on service. Lyle battled the match right out, but Round became the first foreign woman to win the Australian singles title 1-6 6-1 6-3.

Note that Mrs E Bond, md at least as far back as 1928, was a multiple winner of the Tasmanian Chmps

Summary:
Hartigan's overseas experience (she was rated in the world's top 10 for 1935) was too much for her competition. Oddly, Hartigan was "discovered" by Herbert Edwards, the father of the very Vic Edwards who guided Evonne Goolagong to stardom.

Encouraged by another successful overseas tour in which she reached the Wimbledon semifinals by defeating titleholder Dorothy Round finally losing to Helen Wills Moody, Hartigan continued her domination of the Australian women's game. However the arrival of Nancye Wynne and Thelma Coyne pre-figured the end of her reign. Wynne and Coyne fought out a grueling semifinal. Wynne trailed 1-6 2-5 and survived four match points from 1-6 2-5 before getting out of jail 1-6 7-5 7-5. In the final analysis it was the high percentage of first serves in play which saved the day for Wynne.

Hartigan scored in straight sets over May Blick in the other semi.

High expectations were held for the final, but the inexperienced Wynne succumbed to nerves. Her forehand failed her; Hartigan's as usual did not. Hartigan found that keeping the ball in play and waiting for Wynne to fall into error sufficed to ensure a 6-4 6-4 victory.

Summary:

Endless hours hitting balls on top of a Melbourne city building finally resulted in a national title for "Nonchalant Nancy".

No woman obtained greater dominance in Australian women's tennis in the pre-Margaret Smith years than Victoria's Nancye Bolton (nee Wynne). She was only 19 when she won her first Australian title in Sydney. Her weapons were a flat and hard first serve, a solid backhand, volleys and smash, however her wristy forehand was what lost or won her matches. She could disguise this shot crosscourt or down the line, but what she had in disguise she lost in consistency.

Defending champion Jean Hartigan "lost" her forehand in her quarterfinal against the dependable all-court game of Dot Stevenson to lose 4-6 6-3 6-4. Wynne thrashed a disinterested Sadie Berryman 6-0 6-1 and 18 year old Thelma Coyne beat Vera Selwin almost as badly 6-1 6-1. Emily Westacott completed the final quarterfinal match with a tight 7-5 8-6 win over Margaret Wilson who had upset Nell Hopman.

The head to head between Wynne and Coyne was 2 all. In retrospect this semifinal encounter between the two women who would dominate the local scene for years to come was pivotal for both their careers. It was a gargantuan struggle with the crucial game being the tenth of the 1st set, Coyne leading 5-4. Deuce was called 12 times. Seven times Coyne held set point, but couldn't clinch it. Wynne held on finally and won a desperately tight match 7-5 4-6 6-4. Wynne hit 38 outright winners and this time on always held a margin of superiority over Coyne.
It was another heartbreaker for Thelma, who lost last year's semi after having 4 match balls.

The other semi was just as tight with Westacott prevailing over Stevenson 3-6 8-6 9-7. In the first set Stevenson played inspired tennis, running down Westacott's deepest drives and tossing so deeply that when Westacott advanced to the net she was led to uncustomary errors on her smash. But as the match progressed a subtle shift of fortunes improved with the practice, while Stevenson wilted ever so slightly after so much scrambling and retrieving.

Anything might have happened in the final. Both players could be world-beaters one minute, 2nd raters the next. In fact it was a match of errors, but never dull, as the scores were so close. Westacott's experience enabled her to reach 4-2 in the third set, but it was Wynne who managed to rid her game of errors when it mattered most, and she won the first of her six Australian titles 6-3 5-7 6-4. All in all it was nip and tuck, and only Wynne's fighting qualities carried her through. Nancy recalls that afterward, "We had a rip-roaring party. Everyone got silly on lemonade and we didn't get to bed until 2 in the morning". Her coach and mentor Leo Guiney guided the best Aussie before Margaret Court from the age of 17 to 35. She never knew another coach.

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

No player was more bred in the purple for achievements on a tennis court than the 1938 winner Dorothy "Dodo" Bundy of USA. Her father was Tom Bundy, a former US Davis Cup player and US doubles winner and her mother was May Sutton a dual Wimbledon winner. If this wasn't enough, John Doeg, the US Champion of 1930 was her first cousin.
Invited to tour Australia with doubles partner Dorothy "Do" Workman, Dodo and Do entered the 1938 championships with confidence having tournaments in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne behind them.

Hardcastle had no opposition until QF as Blick withdrew (so recieved bye) before tournament started as couldn't make the trip to Adelaide.

South Australian Joan Waters gave Bundy a solid 6-3 8-6 workout in an early round, but the steadiness of Queenslander May Hardcastle lacked the punch and variety to trouble Bundy in the quarterfinals. In the other quarterfinals, Nell Hopman beat the unusually error-prone Thelma Coyne 6-4 6-2, Dot Stevenson broke down Joan Hartigan's weapon the forehand to win 6-3 1-6 6-1 and Nancye Wynne broke through Workman's serve/volley game 6-4 6-3.

Wynne seemed strangely casual and out-of-sorts, almost indifferent in her semi-final against Stevenson. As a result Stevenson scored an unexpected 6-3 6-3 victory. As she did against Hardcastle, Bundy handled the baseline consistency of another opponent, beating Nell Hopman 6-2 6-3.

Unfortunately Stevenson was unable to cope with the mental stress of facing Bundy in such a big match. Her fluency of stroke-making deserted her and only on the odd occasion did her trepidation subside sufficiently for her to display her talents. Bundy scored a simple 6-3 6-3 victory.
It was left to Thelma Coyne and Nancye Wynne to salvage something for Australia by winning the doubles final 9-7 6-4. The match was not, if we can believe a contempory newspaper account, awfully exciting.

Miss Bundy's style seemed dried up at the source, and Miss Workman usually fleet of foot and telling at the net – was kept hovering indeterminately by occassional lobs at, or near, the baseline. The American girls lost through lack of enterprise, the Australians won in spite of theirs. The same reporter declared that the end of the match was greeted with ironical cheers from a bored gallery. But such reaction was the exception to Bundy's tour – her gregarious personality and effervescent tennis made her a popular and worthy champion.

It proved to be Bundy's lone grand slam title. She's since made up for the lack of any others though, as she still plays and wins national titles in the 21st century! As of 2002. she has over 300 USTA titles.

Summary:

Dorothy Bundy admired Westacott's play, and said she'd be a sensation in America. The phrase used to describe Westacott's play was "She smote and spared not." Westacott's best shot was her inside-out forehand, with a Western grip, "which she hit harder and more accurately than anyone in Australian tennis, male or female". She had a superb kick serve, and a good backhand drive. Her overhead was "devastating", and reputed to be "as severe as Gerald Patterson's".

However, she was inconsistent. And, unfortunately, she never had the opportunity to play overseas.

Everybody agreed that the most exciting and dynamic Australian player of the 1930's was Emily Westacott. Her aim to hit the cover off the ball, aim for the lines and to play tennis like a man, when women players outside of the US tended to take their feminity on court with them, made her a crowd delight. In the Australian 1930 girls' final, the crowds nearly left the stands empty during the concurrent mens final of Harry Hopman vs. Gar Moon to watch Em play! When Dorothy Bundy saw her play she expressed unbounded admiration and said that Westacott would be a sensation in America. Unforunately she never had the opportunity to play overseas, unforunately, she had as many off-days as on days. Not that she was ever disconcerted, she had the endearing habit of laughing at her own mistakes.

Armed with a fearsome western off-forehand, superb kicking serve, solid backhand and a devasting overhead, Westacott as usual went into the championships underplayed. With Queensland tennis season concluding in September and Westacott rarely coming south before the championships, she always was at a disadvantage.

The critics conceded it was anybody's event that year. Wynne and Coyne had returned from their overseas tour down on form. Therefore no one was too surprised when Connie Coate def. Wynne 1-6 6-3 6-2. Wynne looked jaded and in need of a lengthy spell from the game.

In the quarterfinals Westacott stopped Coate's run, used the drop-shot as well as her cracking drives to win 6-4 6-2. Joan Hartigan was back to her early 1930's form defeating Sadie Berryman 6-1 6-4. Nell Hopman won the baseline duel over May Hardcastle. May Blick who had already defeated last year's finalist Dot Stevenson almost added the scalp of Thelma Coyne. Blick took the first set with a daring net attack and a series of put-away volleys which brought loud applause from the gallery. At 4-all in the second set, with victory in sight, a vital line call went against the highly-strung Blick, and the match was gone. 1-6 6-4 6-1 to Coyne.

In the semifinals people saw a new side to Westacott. Sensing that this might be her year, she did something she rarely did, toned down the aggression of her game. Battling a treacherous wind, Westacott played within her limits whereas her opponent Hartigan had tremendous trouble with her high ball toss and backhand. Westacott won through to her second final, 6-2 6-3.

Nell Hopman was a frustrating opponent for someone like Thelma Coyne. Coyne knew at her best she could handle Hopman comfortably. Just an iota below her best however, and Hopman would steal the match from her. Sometimes the worry of it all could take the edge off Coyne's game. Hopman, as consistent as ever, and using her topspin lob to good effect, repeated her previous year's quarterfinal win 6-3 6-4.

What promised to be a classic encounter between the adventurous and the dour, the attacker and defender, the flamboyant and the predictable turned into a massacre. Time and time again Westacott ran Hopman out of court and then belted a clean winner into the vacant space. Hopman endeavoured to keep the ball deep but Westacott hit winners everywhere. Hopman chased everything hoping the storm would pass but it only intensified. Westacott won the Australian title, without dropping a set, 6-1 6-2.

Summary:

All 8 seeds reached quarters. Supposedly, there were "no surprises" other than Hartigan defeating Hardcastle. Hattersley narrowly survived Niemwyer and her deadly forehand, drawing up from 0-5 down in the third (and 4 match points at 2-5) to stage a brilliant comeback.

Nancye Bolton won the singles title in 1940. It was relatively uneventful until the semifinals apart from a minor upset in the quarterfinals from no. 5 Hartigan defeating no. 4 May Hardcastle 6-2 6-3.

Thelma Coyne who always had trouble with Nell Hopman scrapped through in a see-sawing semifinal 6-4 2-6 6-3. Wynne, except for a lapse of concentration in the second set, hit with great pace and accuracy to defeat Hartigan 6-0 3-6 6-1.

The final was played in excessive heat and humidity. Numerous fans were seen in sunglasses-a new vogue. According to the Sydney Herald Nancye started with "a flood of errors." Coyne won the first set 7-5, after having to leave the court for a few minutes at 5-4. She reached 3-0 in the 2nd and seemed set for victory, but her stamina began to fail her. Wynne pulled up to 3 all; Coyne went to 4-3, but that was final effort. Wynne lifted her play against her flagging opponent and took the last nine games to win 5-7 6-4 6-0.

Wynne got in trouble for hitting a ball into the gallery, which happened to land near the Governor of New South Wales. The President of the LTAA rebuked her, and said that if the team about to tour New Zealand had been an official one, she'd have been debarred.

In doubles Rees and Woodward hit a "purple patch" to oust the #2 seeds.

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

Summary:

No foreigners in the field, not surprising with World War II having ended a few months before the event.

Nancye Wynne (Bolton), Connie Coate (Wilson), and Thelma Coyne (Long) all got married during the war. Bolton's husband was killed in an air raid over Cologne, leaving her alone to raise daughter Pamela.

When competitive tennis resumed after the war only Bolton of the old brigade survived the quarterfinals in Adelaide. Long, Hopman and Hartigan all lost in quarterfinals. In the semis Bolton defeated Wilson 6-2 6-2 while Fitch using the lob to great effect beat Toomey 7-5 6-4.

Fitch battled hard in the final despite her weaker array of shots. Her speed around the court and ability to retrieve Bolton's fiercest shots kept her in the match, but Bolton prevailed 6-4 6-4.

Total attending was 35,000. Played in terrific heat, the temps reached 105° F in the shade!

Summary:

The old brigade were back in charge in 1947. Hopman made light of her 37 years defeating Fitch 6-2 2-6 6-0. It was Fitch who visibly wilted in the final set. Bolton thrashed Bevis and Long also won through to the semis. The remaining qtrfinal produced one of the greatest recoveries in the history of the event. Pat Jones of NSW came back from 0-5 0-30 in the 3rd set against Toomey to win 7-5 2-6 7-5.

Jones wasn't able to reproduce the miracle against Bolton and Hopman had a surprisingly easy match over Coyne. Hopman tried everything she knew in the final, all to no avail. Bolton took her 4th title 6-3 6-2. The singles finals were windy, with 7,000 coming out to witness the action.

In the mixed Bill Sidwell caused a stir by defaulting in the mixed doubles-an event where he and partner Marie toomey were the #4 seeds. Sidwell cited having to play a the mixed as a second match on the same day. He said he played the first mixed match merely for practice. While officials were aghast at the action, he must have had a measure of understanding from Toomey, who gave her consent to the forfeit.

----------------------------------------------
Summary:

Ashford one of 3 tennis-playing sisters. Led Toomey 3-0 in 2nd set, and 4-2 in 3rd.

Bolton took her 4th successive title in Melbourne without dropping a set. She returned from overseas with a quarter final finish at Wimbledon and a semifinal at Forest Hills. Louise Brough was her nemesis on both occassions, particularly after Bolton squandered a lead of 5-2 and 40-0 in the 3rd set of the Forest Hills match.

Bolton faced Toomey in the final who was totally outclassed. Her backhand was exposed as inadequate and she could find neither the length, or the direction to keep Bolton at bay. Bolton took only 33 minutes to win 6-3 6-1.

Summary: (courtesy of Louloubelle)

Doris Hart's first visit to the Australian titles was a successful one. Scheduled to tour with Louise Brough who cancelled at the last minute, she defeated Bolton 6-3 6-4. She won the Victorian, New South Wales and South Australian titles beforehand and everyone thought she would win the Australian titles in a cakewalk. In the quarterfinals she lapsed unaccountably into error against Dulcie Whittaker, and for a time even seemed to be drifting into defeat. She eventually pulled her game together to win 6-3 3-6 6-2.

Mrs. Baker becomes first Tasmanian to reach semis, as Toomey had troubles coping with her left-handed shots. It is the only major upset of the women's event. Baker was beaten by Hart in the semis 6-3 6-1.

Bolton hits 25 clean winners vs Hawton. Coming into the 1949 event, Bolton hadn't lost a set in singles in this tourney since 1940.

Bolton defeated Long in the other semi.
In century heat Bolton began confidently in the final, going to a 2-0 lead. Then, as was her wont, Bolton lost control of her forehand and Hart won 6 of the next 7 games. Hart broke Bolton's serve to lead 4-2 in the 2nd, then Bolton made a charge to square back at 4-4. Hart applied the garotte and captured the title 6-3 6-4.

Summary:

Honoring her promise of returning to Australia with another American, Doris Hart and Louise Brough contested the Australian Championships. As winner of the two previous Wimbledons, Brough was allocated top seeding with 2 Hart, 3 Bolton, 4 Fitch, 5 Long, 6 Hawton, 7 Hopman, 8 Ashford. Only Ashford failed to make the quarterfinals, losing to Sadie Newcombe 6-3 6-4. Newcombe then fell to Brough and Hart thrashed Hopman 6-0 6-1. Bolton looked nearly as strong – though not in the volleying department – in eliminating Hawton, while Joy Fitch confirmed her seeding over Thelma Long.

Fitch led Brough 3-1 in both sets in the semi-finals, but could not capitalize on her chances in the face of Brough's remorseless aggression, though the score of 6-4 6-4 showed just how close Fitch was to world class. Hart had all her copious talents on display against Nancye Bolton – drives, smashes, stop volleys and her perfect drop shot. Her serve was also functioning smoothly as she outclassed the local champion 6-2 6-3.

Fans had every reason to anticipate a crackerjack final, for Brough-Hart encounters were known over the world to be tough, tight encounters with no quarter given. This one was no exception. But for a brief period when her serve fell away, Brough maintained a slight margin of supremacy all throughout by virtue of her greater fleetness of foot, determination in defense and sharpness on the volley. She used the lob craftily too, coming in behind it to take possession of the forecourt. Hart slugged it out to the end, but Brough scored 6-4 3-6 6-4.

The torrential rain and delayed schedule led to several defaults in the mixed doubles as players gave preference to other events. All of the male Kiwis (who had lost in singles) had to leave for an event in New Zealand-lireally ordered home at the last minute by their federation.
------------------------------------------------

Summary:

In the absence of a foreign contingent, Bolton demonstrated her superiority of the local opposition beating Thelma Long in the final. Despite a tough match over promising Beryl Penrose in the qtr-finals, Bolton thrashed Esme Ashford 6-0 6-1 to reach the final. Long at last was widening the gap between her and Nell Hopman winning 6-1 6-2 in the qtr-finals and wearing down Fitch 6-8 6-4 6-2.

It was 15 years since Long and Bolton had first met in an Australian singles final. The result on this occasion was the same. Bolton was simply too good for her doubles partner and annexed her 6th title, 6-1 7-5.

Weatherwise it was a very wet week, with play being disrupted by rain on 5 days. Play was scheduled to start on the 19th. Instead it was delayed until the 22nd, and even then the water-logged center court was unfit for play. This set back play so much that organizers decided to play on a Sunday the 27th-an unheard of occurance in Australia in this conservative era. The Sydney Herald got a few letters bemoaning profaning the Lord's day, but organizers were no doubt relieved that 7,000 came out to see the quarterfinals.

8,000 saw the semis and 6,000 saw Tueday's singles finals.

The women are almost totally overshadowed by the interest in American male visitors. In fact the ladies don't even get a paragraph of coverage the whole week in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Summary: (courtesy of Louloubelle)

After 14 quarterfinals, 11 semifinals and 4 runner-ups, Thelma Long finally won the Australian title in 1952. Never being able to quite bridge the gap between herself and Nancye Bolton she was known throughout the world as the 'Australian No. 2'. Though she had better volleys, her service and groundstrokes weren't as severe as Bolton's, who covered the court better as well.

In 1952 everything fell into place for Long. Nell Hopman, always a tough opponent for her, had collapsed from heat exhaustion when trailing against Queensland junior Mary Schultz 9-11 0-1 and was forced to forfeit. Bolton lost her semifinal to 20 year-old South Australian Helen Angwin 6-4 4-6 4-6. Angwin had struck a purple patch of form defeating Clare Proctor and the improving Beryl Penrose. Despite this defeat Penrose was still preferred for the team which toured South Africa later in the year.

For Bolton, the time had come to alter her sporting direction. 'When I was beaten by Helen I knew I had enough. That was the end of the road, I didn't want to go downhill. I don't think there's anything worse than watching a former top player who has become a yard short of balls he or she would normally hit for a winner', she said.

In quarterfinals Long defeated Gwen Thiele, a stalwart of South Australian tennis over many decades who was the first woman elected to the management committee of the state association. Thiele had beaten Jenny Staley the round before 8-10 6-3 9-7.

Long defeated Hawton in the semifinals 6-0 7-5. Hawton was upset by footfault calls in the first set and by the time she settled down the match was virtually over.

Long vs. Angwin, Long dominated the match throughout with consistent deep driving from both wings scoring 6-2 6-3.That year Long was seeded seven at Wimbledon, and took a set off Maureen Connolly in the quarterfinals the only one of two sets Connolly ever dropped at Wimbledon.

Draw Notes:

Fay Occleshaw=I Occleshaw. Also possibly=Olive Occleshaw
Mrs. J Warnock=former Ellen Astley. note that the Aussie site lists her as Joan Warnock.

The official Australain website has the seeding wrong due to the presence of foreign seeds. For example, it lists Mary Hawton as the #4 seed rather than her true seed of domestic #2.
-----------------------------------------------
Summary:

Playing the first leg of her attempt for the grand slam, Maureen Connolly easily won the 1953 Australian Championships. She defeated Carmen Borelli (later the wife of LTAA President Brian Tobin) 6-0 6-1 the first round, Mrs. Baker 6-1 6-0 in the second, thrashed promising Pam Southcombe 6-0 6-1 in the quarters and the accomplished Mary Hawton fared little better in the semis 6-2 6-1. Connolly's doubles partner, American Julie Sampson came through the other half of the draw to face Little Mo. The final, however was no more of a contest than Connolly's other matches. If Sampson advanced to the net she was passed, if she stayed at the baseline she run from side to side until she was so hopelessly out of position that the point was lost. Sampson was actually the reigning US junior champion which made her the same age as Connolly but you would never have thought so, to see Connolly blast her from the court 6-3 6-2. 6,532 fans came out for the final.

Summary:

Long won her second title at the age of 35. The South African ladies, Mesdames Wiplinger and Redick-Smith were the foreign contingent that year. They reached the final of the doubles but were disappointing in the singles.Wipplinger was defeated in an early round by teenager Mary Carter while Redick-Smith after barely beating Fay Muller (she survived 3 match points) lost to reigning Australian junior champion Jenny Staley 8-10 7-5 3-6. Staley the most improved player in Australia, tore through Mary Hawton in the semifinals.Long thrashed Nell Hopman 6-0 6-0 in the quarterfinals and was too solid and experienced for Mary Carter in the semifinals.

Staley was too nervous to do herself full justice in the final. And Long gave her no chance to recover her composure, denying her the unforced errors or easy winners which might have enabled her to get back into the match. Long was like a stern headmistress as she handed out a 6-3 6-4 lesson to a disconsolate Staley.

Watching the match in his army uniform was Staley's boyfriend, Lew Hoad, on leave from national service training. Lew, after his recent victories in the Davis Cup was a national hero. His presence, and the conjecture about his relationship with Staley were said to have contributed to her inability to produce her stylish best.

Summary:

Beryl Penrose was the champion of Australia in 1955 in Adelaide. Her most difficult match was an 8-6 in the third win against the accomplished Mary Hawton. Long, Carter and Staley progressed to the semifinals also. Staley hit many picturesque shots against Penrose, but the Sydney player grafted harder and picked up points by running Staley wide on the forehand winning 6-4 8-6. Thelma Long never let Carter into the other semifinal winning 6-1 6-1. Penrose learned the lessons well from the Long-Carter semi. Anything loose or short from Long, Penrose pounced on it, hitting deep hard drives and following them into the net. Long was never allowed to get into a groove, never permitted to dominate the forecourt. Penrose adhered assiduously to her game plan, her concentration never faltered, and she was rewarded with the title, 6-4 6-3, bringing a close the two decades of Bolton-Long hegemony.

Beryl was an automatic selection for 1955 touring team, which included Staley, Muller, Carter and Adrian Quist as manager. Beryl won two of the 4 tournaments the team participated on the continent and reached the quarters of Wimbledon as the seventh seed. She fell to Louise Brough who won her 4th title that year.

The big story of the women's touring team occurred just before Wimbledon, when Jenny Staley 'snuk-off' unbeknown to Adrian Quist and secretly married Lewis Alan Hoad. Quist was of course furious that he hadn't been told, and so was Sir Norman Brookes back home in Melbourne. Brookes was especially irate with Harry Hopman, manager of the men's team, who had connived the ceremony. It was great stuff and the newspapers had a field day when the story broke.

The Aussie tennis officials discouraged their romance, but the pair married anyway in secret on the eve of Wimbledon. This illicit romance and the men's action overshadows the local women's event.

Tall trim Penrose upsets favored Long in the finals.

Summary:

The first Aussie ever in Brisbane and a disaster by all accounts. The center court was the wrong dimensions, player complaints were numerous, and controversy raged daily.

The first big upset of the 1956 women's singles in Brisbane was the thrashing which was inflicted upon title holder Beryl Penrose in the quarterfinals by local girl Daphne Seeney. Penrose was all at sea on the heavy court and found herself becalmed by the dropshots and placements of the awkward lefthander 2-6 1-6. Not that losing to Seeney was a disgrace, she toured with the overseas team, a runnerup at Wimbledon doubles. She eventually married South African Davis Cup player Trevor Fancutt, settled in Queensland and raise a whole family of tennis players.

Long defeated Muller, Carter defeated Loris Nichols and Hawton won over Lorraine Coghlan with unusual scoreline of 0-6 6-0 6-3 to reach the semis.

Hawton was then involved in another bizarre match, against Long in the semifinals. Hawton won the first 9 games, Long the next 9, and then the real tussle began. In the final set Long had match points at 5-4, but could not put Hawton away. Hawton led 7-6 but on a crucial point missed the line by inches with a backhand volley. The ghost of a chance quickly slipped away and Long was through 0-6 6-3 9-7.

Officials attempted to relegate the Carter-Seeney semifinal to an outside court to clear a backlog of matches, but the girls wouldn't have a bar of it. A decade or so before the modern Women's Liberation Movement caught on, the girls stood up for their rights and insisted that the public was waiting for them to play on centre court where they had been scheduled, and that was where they would play. Furthermore they insisted that Long had the advantage of getting used to the centre court and it would be unfair to the winner of their match to be denied such an opportunity. Carter and Seeney refused to leave center court when the President of the Queensland LTA demanded they leave to make way for a men's match. The sight of Big Bill Edwards, 20 stone, trying to herd the two women to an outside court remains vivid for those who witnessed the comical stand-off. The overweight official waddled on court to the amusement of the gallery. The women delayed, refusing to go to an outside court. When finally shooed off, the two ladies barricaded themselves in the locker room, in effect daring the officials to default them.

Finally the ladies were allowed to finish their match the next day-- on center court.

In Seeney's case it was a matter of winning the battle and losing the war. Halfway through the 2nd set, just when she seemed she was getting into the match, she dislocated her right knee. She insisted on continuing with it heavily strapped and even succeeded in winning a few games before Carter finished off the match 6-3 7-5.

Despite losing to Long in the semifinals in the last two Australian titles, Carter was optimistic of a positive outcome as Brisbane turned on one of it's hottest and most humid days and she hoped that the 17 years difference between ages may be a telling factor. The longer the match went on the better Carter's chances become. Long won the first 6-3 but in the 2nd started to limp noticeably because of blisters. Carter won the 2nd and took a 5-3 lead in the third. Always dangerous when cornered, Long battled back to reach match point at 6-5. Carter remained calm, volleyed her way out of trouble and eventually prevailed 9-7 in the third.

It was discovered before finals day that the service box on center court was 25 inches short on one end. The players had complained throughout the event but organizers had refused to measure the court. Only after reporters snuck onto the court and measured it were Queensland officals pressured into admitting their error and fixing the court.

Even the finals produced controversy, as they were held on a Sunday. Churches protested, but the first Sunday finals went ahead.

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

Summary:

The only Aussie ever entered by Fry and Gibson. Fry's win made her one of the few women ever to win all 4 slams in singles or doubles. She met the man she would marry in Australia and retired in 1957, leaving the circuit to the domination of Gibson. Althea's loss denies her winning all 4 slams.

A winner of the other three grand slams, 30 year old Shirley Fry won the Australian title. Known as a backcourt retriever who won her matches by plucky persistence, intense concentration and consistency, Fry had developed a more varied, penetrating and complete game by teaming up in doubles with Doris Hart a few years before. No one played the game with greater zest and sporting spirit, and her broad grin and general affability was popular with crowds.

These championships were the first in Australia to be the subject of television transmissions. The first pictures were beamed around Melbourne on 19 January 1957 and one of the exploits undertaken by the new medium to demonstrate it's expertise was a live cross to Kooyong for the tennis.

Touring with Althea Gibson, both reached the final. They had played a titanic match in the Victorian singles final with Fry coming through 4-6 9-7 8-6, after Gibson held match points in the both second and third sets and had squandered a 5-1 lead in the third. It was because Gibson seemed to have a mental block about beating Fry, that Fry went into the final as favorite. Both reached the final over the local competition in straight sets.

Fry had been a top player for years, whilst Gibson had arrived on the scene fairly recently, as she had been forced due to socio-economic reality to delay her introduction to top class tennis. This inexperience told in the final. Being called a number of times (7 in all) for foot faulting seemed to upset her concentration. Fry was running down everything as usual and thriving on unforced errors by Gibson at crucial stages. Fry's greater experience was the deciding factor in a 6-3 6-4 victory. The Aussie crowd of 7,000 favored Gibson. Fry retired shortly after her win, married, and despite rumors she would settle in Australia, settled in the US.

Summary:


Throughout the summer of 1957/58 England's Angela Mortimer and Victorian Lorraine Coghlan battled it out in the finals of the various state championships. They were crowd pleasing matches, characterised by hard hitting rallies and long baseline duels in which the sounder stroke production of the Australian was pitted against the tactical sense of the shrewd Englishwoman. Coming into the Australian singles it was two titles each.

Mortimer and Coghlan were ruthless in their way to the final, both not losing a set. The only highlights of the tournament was the younger brigade of Australians, Margot Rayson and Betty Holstein making their way into the quarterfinals. Rayson lost to Coghlan however Holstein surprised Mary Hawton 6-4 in the third before being thrashed by Mortimer.

Coghlan got off to a good start in the final establishing a 3-1 lead. But her first serve was not functioning at its best and Mortimer gradually capitalised with some highly effective drives. Mortimer seemed the more purposeful; the match was always close, but the vital points went Mortimer's way for a 6-3 6-4 victory.

Many top Aussie women defaulted. Long had a recurring back injury. Seeney also had back problems and Penrose was in a car accident the week before.

Nearing 40, Thelma stuck around in the doubles after defaulting her singles. It's her last Aussie title (the first was in the 1936) she collects her 12th doubles crown in an upset over the top seeds.

Summary:

World top tenners South Africans Reynolds and Schuurman added interest to the field, but neither wins the title, as Reitano upsets Schuurman in the final. Mary's slice backhand and drop shot do the most damage. On the way to her win Mary beats little known Margaret Smith, competing in her first Aussie. It's the only time Smith will EVER lose in the Aussie before the quarters.

The heat was on, as temps were as high as 107 in the shade and 120 on court. Spectators abandoned the stands in droves, with the hardy few sweating it out from under bleachers or wide hats. Only the finals drew a decent crowd of 7,000.

Lehane is top seed for the Juniors and and #5 seed among women at age 17. Her coach is Vic Edwards (later coach of Evonne Goolagong) and she is considered Australia's future, crushing then unknown future great Margaret Smith (Court) in the juniors final 6-0 6-1. Her win over top seed Reynolds in the quarters is the shock of the event.

Summary:

Maria Bueno's plans for a Grand Slam go up in smoke as Margaret Smith produces passing shots "not seen since Mo Connolly" to beat her. Just a couple of weeks before in Adelaide Smith had manged only 3 games vs. The Senorita.

Margaret sped to a 5-2 lead in the third by mixing in deadly passing shots ans strong serve. Both discouraged Bueno from seeking the net. As if the senorita didn't have enough to worry about her right hand began to cramp. When Maria dramatically fell reaching for a volley the match appeared in the bag as Smith led 5-2. The youngster got nervous however, and the world #1 pulled up to 4-5 before Smith won as a Bueno backhand hit the tape on the third match point.

The second shock comes in ther semis when Jan Lehane takes out the second foreign favoite Christine Truman. Ambulance attendents treat Jan for heat exhaustion in the second set after she collapsed in the dressing room during the break. She overcomes both the 100 degree heat and Christine, who cries with pain due to leg cramps at 5-6 in the decider

Searing heat (sometimes over 100) was present all week. The frying pan-like conditions contributed to the second shock-as Jan Lehane took out #2 seed Christine Truman. Jan Lehane had to be revived by ambulance attendants after losing the second set of her semi to Truman. The women took their ten minute break as is customary here. Lehane fainted when she reached the dressing room. Truman also got assistance courstside from the very same crew in the 11th game of the deciding set. Christine cries from painful leg cramps at 5-6.

It wasn't only women who suffered from heat exhaustion-Neale Fraser also collapsed after the men's final.

The Aussie press debated what the upsets of the world's #1 and #2 players meant. Was this the start of an Aussie golden age in women's tennis, or merely Bueno and Truman wilting in tropical heat? Margaret Smith proved the superior player vs lehane in the final. At the time no one could predict that Smith wouldn't lose a singles again in this event until 1968.

Turner wins the junior girls final over Smith. Lacking financial support, Smith doesn't make an international tour this year.

Feminism has come to Australia. The women decided as a group to lock themselves in their dressing room (see 1956 notes) until given a decent share of matches on center court. "It was led by Mary Reitano, normally the quietest little mouse around." The tournament committee reconsidered allocation of matches.

Temps averaging 105 to 107 Farenheit kept fans away. By day 5 only 500 had paid to see the action. Lesley Turner was ordered by her doctor to withdraw from heat exhaustion.

The heat for the semis was especially brutal-125 degrees.

Margaret Smith (Court) demonstrates 1960 was no fluke by repeating. She will now join Lehane, Turner and a couple other girls in an overseas tour. Blisters on her feet hurt Lehane in the final. Margaret served ball after ball out wide to Jan's two handed backhand-hitting any returns into the open court.

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

Draw Notes:

Seeds #9-16 come from the Australian site. One problem is they list two #13 seeds, Blackman and Robinson. The #11 seed is missing. Clearly this is in error. Were there seeds at all? The byes suggest it is possible, yet the NYT calls Marsh "unseeded".

THe NYT and World Tennis lists Tegart's partner as Fay (nee Muller) Robinson, not Lorraine (nee Coghlan, who also wed a Mr Robinson), the name the Aussie web site uses.
The New York Times calls Judith Robinson "Jenny"

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

Summary:

Smith (later Court) easily wins her 3rd consecutive Aussie, dropping only 16 games in 5 matches. The public is disappointed that the American rival Darlene Hard didn't make the finals, as she and Margaret have a bitter rivalry. Finalist Jan Lehane is the first top ten female with a two-handed (or two fisted as it's called in the 60's) backhand.

Smith and Lehane play the first ever ladies slam final at night under lights. It lasts only 35 minutes.

Mary Reitano retires after this slam. The Aussies nicknamed her "Miss Poker face", and she won 2 Aussies in her career.

Ebbern and Smith take the doubles in a surprise. Darlene Hard and Yola Ramirez had partnered each other on the Aussie circuit until the championships. The doubles final was the first ever slam title match decided under lights. Rain had dictated the move. The slippery court also led Darlene to use spikes to avoid slipping and falling on the grass. Ebbern and Smith directed thier attack at the softer hitting Reitano.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes:

The greatest Aussie yet due to the record number of foreigners in Oz to play in the Fed Cup, held right before the Open. The women were usually treated as second class at the Aussie, but Smith(later Court) versus Bueno drew a record crowd of 10,000.
Interest was so high it was played last AFTER the men's final.
At 2-2 in the third Bueno turned her ankle, but fought on. At 2-5
Maria fell down in a cramp. "For what seemed like an eternity no one moved to assist"(touching her meant automatic default) but Margaret Smith ran to her aid when it was obvious she was finished.

The Japanese send a squad for the first time in 30 years.

Kerry Melville won the Junior girls final over Helen Gourlay 6-1 6-1.

Draw Notes:

P Hart=Julie Hart

Fay Muller now appears under her maiden name. Was she divorced or widowed from the previous year?

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

Summary:

3 British gals are the only foreigners-and #4 seed Christine Truman defaults before she plays her first match. Christine cuts short her tour due to a weight problem and returns to Britain. Truman pays her own way around the world.

Searing heat early on (it topped 100 F) gave way to cooler temps. Players were unwilling to play night matches as a means of catching up.

Lehane loses in the finals to Smith for the 4th year in a row despite the crowd cheering for her. Smith was under a lot of pressure due to a controversy with the Aussie LTA (Lawn Tennis Association). In 1962 Smith refused to tour with chaperone Nell Hopman and the other Aussie girls. It was so bad at one point she was preparing to emigrate to New Zealand. Finally the LTA let the "rebel" make a private overseas tour, where Hopman had the other Aussie girls shun her. Smith's reaction was to practice with the men. Smith also won the doubles and mixed for a triple crown. She and Fletcher would capture the mixed grand slam in 1963.

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

Summary:

Poor Jan Lehane loses to Smith for the 5th straight year. Lehane and Turner have both beaten Smith on clay, but the fast grass is too much of an advantage for net-rushing Margaret.

With only 2 foreign players in the women's singles the importance of the event itself is being questioned in some quarters. Bill Edwards, President of the Queensland LTA, said that without foreign stars the championships have become "a second-rate event."

The semis in the womens singles were contested in temps of over 100 degrees.

The women's doubles saw the big upset of the event, as Judy Tegart stole the show with impressive overheads and volleys. Judy wore spikes due to the wet and slippery court. The Tegart/Turner combo had played as a team for only a month. It was the only defeat for Ebbern/Smith over the entire 1963-64 Aussie season.

Summary:

The greatest Aussie yet due to the record number of foreigners in Oz to play in the Fed Cup, held right before the Open. The women were usually treated as second class at the Aussie, but Smith (later Court) versus Bueno drew a record crowd of 10,000.

Interest was so high it was played last AFTER the men's final.

At 2-2 in the third Bueno turned her ankle, but fought on. At 2-5 Maria fell down in a cramp. "For what seemed like an eternity no one moved to assist" (touching her meant automatic default) but Margaret Smith ran to her aid when it was obvious she was finished.

The Japanese send a squad for the first time in 30 years.

American Carole Graebner caused a bit of a stir by refusing to play doubles with Rosie Darmon of France, claiming that the former doubles slam champ wasn't good enough. Aussie officials had picked the pairing without consulting either player. They fianally did pair up and made a run to the semis, though one wonders what Darmon felt about the whole affair.

Carole pulled leg muscle in the round of 16 vs Jill Starr but fought on grimly to win with sheer power, hoping a day of recovery would allow it to mend. The same tactic didn't faze Van Zyl, a top tenner herself. Annette made some impossible to gets to prolong rallies. An immobile Graebner could to do nothing as she dropped almost every long point.

Billie Jean Moffitt crushed Robyn Ebbern in the QF despite serving up 8 double faults.

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

Draw notes:

6 foreign entrants in the draw of 48-with Richey and Graebner the #1 and #2 foreign seeds.

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

Summary:

Richey twisted her left knee in a doubles match. She managed to play the semi in singles while heavily bandaged, but doctors said she risked permanent damage if she played the final.

This is the only defaulted slam final in women's tennis history.

The semis were played in heavy winds, sometimes gusting up to 54 mph. Several shots were blown yards off course.

Grabner and Richey pulled off a huge feat in taking the women's doubles. tHey upset Smith and Turner-playing to Lesley as much as possible. According to the NYT "several long rallies were played entirely by Miss Turner." When Smith did get a ball she was often far below her usual form.

-----------------------------------------
Draw Notes:

16 foreign entries, the most since 1965.


Mrs Court=nee Margaret Smith, returning after a 1 year's absence.
Helen Fraser and John Fraser are a husband-wife pairing in mixed.
Beryl Jenkins listed as Brenda Jenkins in the NYT.
-----------------------------------------

Summary:

The mens event is devoid of star power as the star Aussies have joined the pro ranks. Roy Emerson, then record holder of the most singles slams in history, is the latest defection, turning pro weeks before the Nationals.

The ladies event holds the main treat for spectators. Would Mrs King win one last slam before turning pro? Would Margaret Smith, now Mrs Barry Court, be succesful in coming back after an absence of 18 months?

Hardly anyone bothered to show early in the week. The usual 100 plus degree heat was more in evidence than sparse fans, who were outnumbered by officals more often than not. Men's winner Bill Bowrey and pretty Lesley Turner were snapped holding hands among empty seats on center court. The love birds would wed right after the event.

Court and King progressed easily through early rounds. Margaret was devastating vs Casals,dropping only 2 games. She also won the semi easily vs Turner by overpowering her foe. It was Billie Jean who had the harder route-needing 3 sets to subdue Judy Tegart.

It was hoped the return of Margaret Smith (now playing as Court) from a year-long hiatus would provide a classic final. Instead, Billie Jean rolled through Margaret to confirm her status as the world #1.

The final was a shock. Court "flopped dismally in the final. Confident Billie jean raced all over the court to outpace her 6-1 6-2 in under forty embarrassing minutes. Margaret was so nervous and stilted that she served countless double faults and stroked with clumsy uncertainty."

By winning the Aussie in convincing fashion Mrs. King has now won all 3 slams held on grass. Her new goal is the grand slam, a tricky proposition considering clay is her weakest surface.

As for Court, many in the press wrote that "That never come back." Margaret was to prove them utterly wrong over the next few years.

Total attendance was 7,000 (3,500 for the Court-King final)

Draw Notes:

Lesley Bowrey-nee Lesley Turber, who married fellow player Bill Bowrey
Gail Chanfreau=nee Gail Sheriff of Australia who married a Frenchman.
---------------------------------------------

Summary:

A good field, with 5 of the top ten. The first "Open" in Australia to offer prize money, and the last Australian to feature mixed doubles until the event returned in the 1980s.

Omnipresent heat battered players from day 1, which saw on court temps soar to 118 degrees. On day two only a couple hundred had dared brave the heat, so organizers announced night platy in a bid to save the event from financial disaster. It didn't work. In all 15,250 came over 8 days and 3 nights.

Margaret Court beat Billie Jean King 6-4 6-1 to claim the $1,500 prize. By comparison the men's winner got $5,000. In 1968 Mrs Court played poorly. This time it was King " who virtually fell apart when she became upset at the unsportsmanlike behavior of several of the fans at the Milton Courts" (NYT).

Margaret announced her second retirement from big time tennis. She would reverse her decision within weeks and go on to return to the #1 sport she held in 1965.

This was the last year that a mixed doubles championship was staged until 1986, Marty Riessen and Margaret Court sharing the title with Fred Stolle and Anne Haydon Jones. .

Draw notes:

The #3 seed is missing-probably a withdrawal

Mrs Emmerson=Jill Emmerson, nee Blackman. [Per Andrew Tas] World of Tennis has Emmerson as the spelling. The Sydney Morning Herald also confirms this on March 11 1971.
Jill Blackman played after she got married into the mid 1970's mainly in and around Sydney.

The Aussie site gives a 1R score of 6-0 5-0 retired for Helen Kayser d. Kati Athorne

---------------------------------------------
Summary:

The Dunlop Australian Open had one of the weakest fields in years. Only Court was in the World top ten, though Goolagong would be in that group later in 1971. Only 4 foreigners showed, and one of those, Gail Lovera (nee Sherriff), was a born Aussie. The new Virginia Slims circuit began in January, taking away most possible foreign entries, and even class Aussies such as Kerry Melville Reid and Judy Tegart, both top tenners. A star was born in the women's final, as Evonne Goolagong stretched Court to the limit, leading 5-2 in the third. At that point cramps became too much for the young lass, who lost the next 5 games. It was Court's second Aussie final win where her opponent was done in partly due to cramps, echoing the 1965 final.

Overall this was Court's 10th Aussie title in singles and her 3rd consecutive title. This year the Aussie decided to use a tiebreaker except in deciding sets-the middle set tiebreak (won by Court 7-0) was the first tiebreak in a women's final. Top prize was US $2,016.

Draw Notes:

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

Summary:

Goolagong and Wade were the only members of the top 10 entered. Even many Aussies skipped their national championships to play the Slims circuit in the US. A pregnant Margaret Court was unable to defend her title. The Aussie LTA helped to scuttle their own national event by banning Melville, L.Hunt, and Dalton from the tourney for playing a tuneup event in Auckland instead of the one in Queensland.

Wade entered with the express purpose of gaining
revenge over Goolagong for a Fed Cup defeat the previous year. The two easily gained the final "Evonne in her lighthearted way and Virginia remorseless and unsmiling as ever."

On finals day over 12,500 were packed in an arena whose capacity was 11,800. It was the largest finals day ever. The record crowds of 47,500 beat the previous 1969 record of 33,000 by far. Wade was down 0-3 in set one, but never looked back afterwards, running up a 6-4 5-1 lead. Evonne sent hopes up by coming back to 4-5, but Miss Wade clinched her third match point.

Absentee Billie Jean must have rued not coming to Melbourne after the US Open, for she was unbeaten in slams for 1972 and may have had a shot at the grand slam.

Summary:

In smashing Dart in R3 Court lost only 3 points on her serve the entire match!

Goolagong was two games from elimination at the hands of Brit Lesley Charles, recovering from 6-7 2-4 to win. It was a case of good play on Lesley's part and a "walkabout" on Evonne's. Goolagong had 2 set points at 6-4 in the tiebreak and lost it 11-9.

In the quarters tiny Sawamatsu directs balls to Wade's backhand as Virginia starts missing. The defending champ goes down in a blaze of errors after capturing a love set. Wade "obviously affected by the stiffling center court conditions., was close to collapse as she walked rubberry-legged from the courts. in between games she she took slat tablets, drank consistently, and and slumped in the shade of the umpire's chair. Afterwards, she confesed to heat stroke, feeling faint, and at times missing sight of the ball.. In an attempt to conserve energy she she played half-hearted shots and appeared to throw the second set." Kazuko won when she broke Wade at 4-4 and then held for the upset win of her career.

The one sour note for Court came when a locker room matron refused, politely but firmly, to let her bring her son Danny into the facilities. Margaret let loose to the press: "It's about time Australia stopped living in the past with their archaic ideas of officaldom". When Kooyong offered to let her use an alternate room Margaret refused.

After a 33 minute semi roll over Melville, Margaret declares, "I don't fear anybody-not Billie Jean King or anybody. It would be a thrill to win after having a baby. It would show that tennis mums can play-and play well. I'd like to be the best player in the world again." Goolagong, who took 56 minutes to dispose of Sawamatsu, said that "Margaret's match was over so quickly I didn't have time to practice." Evonne declared she wanted the Aussie crown more than any other title.

Court beat Goolagong in "sweltering heat" before 11,500. She had pulled her stomach muscle in the semis vs. Melville. It slowed her down on serves and smashes, but she won despite dropping serve 3 times in the match with an all-out attack. The 115 degree heat led both women to swallow salt tablets. Evonne's weak forehand is put under continuous stress by Margaret's attack to that side. Since her return in mid 1972 Margaret has captured 12 of 16 events in singles.

This was to be Court's final singles title in the Australian Championships. In all she won 11 times, a record for any slam to this day.

First prize here was $4,500 US.

Summary:

The best field since 1969. The star power showed in the numbers-60,000 coming through the turnstiles. It was Evert's first trip to Oz. She was to enter 6 times in all, never failing to reach the finals. After 1974 she didn't return until 1981.

Julie Helman provided most of the early headline as she publicly lobbied for women's rights. She played Lesely Hunt on the #1 outside show court. The match was interrupted by a gale-force wind, a 30 degree plunge in temps, and finally a rain storm. As the ladies came back to finish their match referee Jim Entinck announced that the next match, a men's singles, was being moved to center court because the slippery conditions meant it was "not fit for a men's match." a furious Julie took hold of the mic and spat out, "What are we, second-class citizens?".

Later on she let loose in the presser. "I fthe conditions wern't suitable for men, why should they be suitable for women? We had a lot of water on the court, but nobody suggested that we move. There are more big name women players here than men. People are paying to see entertainment and they want to see the girls more. I have played two matches in the boonies without ball boys and without water. it is about time that Australain tennis woke up and realized that women are entertainment. You've got Goolagong, Melville, Evert and now another chick-me-in the semifinals and we are all something."

Entinck's reply: To me the whole thing was all fun and nothing to do with the sexes. to be serious, I regarded the court as too wet to play another match. The women started on the court and it was right for them to finish on it."

A "spillover' crowd of 13,000 showers their adoration on Goolagong for winning what was billed as a heavyweight contest.

The first two sets had featured some spectacular baseline rallies. “I felt confident even before I went out on court and I was on a roll,” said Goolagong, who took a shower during the 10-sminute break the players were afforded during the second and third sets due to the oppressive conditions. “It was just what I needed...I won the third set quite easily.” Another factor that spurred Evonne on may have been her coach Viv Edwards. Viv urged her to attack the net, rounding off with, "Evonne just believe in God, believe in yourself, and believe in me." She proceded to steamroll Evert, who won only 9 points in the last set. When it was over the fans gave Goolagong a 5 minute standing ovation and threw leftover New Year's party streamers onto the court. The Evert-Goolagong rivalry now stands at 6-5 in Evert's favor.

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

Summary:

Youth was prominent at this year's event-the first Australian Open for Martina Navratilova. The scrambling 18 year old Czech fell to the turf a couple of times in the semis vs. 16 year old Russian Chymreva. British star Sue Barker is also only 18. By comparison Goolagong seemed positively ancient at 24.

What then was one to make of Margaret Court, aged 33 and gunning for her 12th Aussie Open? Youth in the form of Martina finally caught up to Court, and even the sentimental crowd couldn't pull her through. This was fated to be Court's last Aussie Open.

Evonne needs 46 minutes to win over surprise finalist Martina Navratilova before a capacity crowd of 12,500. The young Czech had more to be pleased with than her first grand slam final. Her federation finally will allow her to keep some of her prize money.

Mourning the death of her father in a car accident, Evonne Goolagong cried on her coach’s shoulder on receiving her second-consecutive Australian Open trophy having beaten Martina Navratilova 6-3 6-2.

Summary:

Blonde Ekblom was a cameraman favorite, with a habit of putting the second ball when serving up under her dress.

Evonne won the final in 57 minutes.

Heat was so intense that 300 spectators were treated for heat in the last 3 days. Many women spectators wore bikinis. One player donwe in by the heeat was Masthoff, who led by a set and 4-0.

Evonne Goolagong’s victory in the women’s singles was no surprise. Playing her sixth-consecutive AO final Evonne taught her opponent Renata Tomanova of Czechoslovakia a thing or two about Grand Slam championship matches via a 6-2 6-2 drubbing. Goolagong took gome $7,500. Evonne said that "I was feeling dizzy out there and I usually like the heat!"


Given the atrocious weather conditions (40 degree Celsius heat and a winds that at times reached 70 KPH ) competitors in the women’s doubles final agreed that the title should be decided by one pro set, Goolagong partnering Helen Gourlay to defeat Lesley Turner Bowrey and Tomanova, 8-1.

Draw notes:

Total prize money (combined)= $216,000 US

The New York Times has the event starting on January 1

Connor=maiden name of Chaloner.

Traditionally there were 8 seeds even in a 32 player draw. We need to find if there were 4 seeds. All sources so far (including John Dolan's book) make no mentiion of more than 4 seeds.

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

Summary:

Kerry Reid , nicknamed the Australian Tiger, wins her elusive grand slam at last on her 13th attempt at her nation's title. The popular pixie-like lass knew it was her best chance, with Aussie giants Goolagong (pregnant-she had her daughter Kelly in May) and Court (retired) absent. In fact, only Lesley Turner had ever won a slam among all the entries, and none had an Aussie title. Diane "Hard Way" Fromholtz was top seed and favorite, but she and Kerry each struggled their way to the finals. On a hot day Kerry held serve only once each set (there were 18 breaks in 20 games!), but it was enough to take home the trophy. Having reached the semis 5 times, "There was more than a touch of Cinderella about the overdue occasion." The 29 year-old had been trying ever since she first came on the scene a curly-haired teen in 1965. This was Kerry's lone slam victory, and Fromholtz's only final. The promising lefty never again came so close.

Kerry took home $10,000 as the top prize. She dedicated her trophy to husband Raz Reid. "I owe Raz a tremendous amount of support, because he has worked so tirelessly with me and has always tried to inspire me when I felt down."

The women are basically ignored at Kooyong this year, with not a single match on the main stadium court until the semis.

The event was a fine return for Karen Krantzcke; making a return from wrist surgery. Tragically she was to die of a heart attack 3 months later.

Summary:

A change in dates creates an unusual event-two calender Aussie winners in one year. A change back to the January start after 1985 leaves another anomaly, no Aussie Open held in calender year 1986.

In spite of a weak field, the second Aussie Open of 1977 boasted 3 women in the world's top 10, home grown talents Evonne Goolagong (coming back after the birth of a child) and Kerry Reid, plus the blonde British cutie Sue Barker.

Early attention was focused on the unlikely American Mona Guerrant. The week before the Aussie season Mona's husband had used a walkie-talkie to give her advice during changeovers at Sydney. This was in violation of rules prohibiting coaching. The Guerrants were told this would not be allowed at Kooyong. Even without earphones on Mona attracted sizable crowds during her matches on outside courts.

Speaking of outside courts, it was the only place to see the women in week one. Only 1 women's match had been on center court the entire first 8 days. Not only that, the men were given priority because of the horrible court conditions. The grass was so beaten up that Victoria President John Young stated it may have been the work of saboteurs. Bad bounces and patches were only made worse by rain, which the women were expected to play through while the men got preferential (and drier) courts and times. The culprit was eventually identified as the Argentine Stem Weevil, the courts were spray painted green for television, and it was announced that grass experts from Wimbledon would help with next year's open.

The normally reticent Goolagong lashed out after her second round win over Sato. "I'm no women's libber or anything like that, but I just feel it's common sense that the women should be given a better go here". After her quarterfinal was scheduled on a an outside court labeled "too dangerous for men", Evonne asked, "I am a serve and volley player and would be at the same risk as any man who played on the court. What would happen if I broke a leg?." Goolagong indicted she likely would not return the next year, and was as good as her word. This was Evonne's 4th and last title at the Aussie Open. Her prize money is $9,000 US.

She beat Helen Cawley in the final, delayed 90 minutes in hopes Helen would recover from a gastric virus contracted after her upset over #2 seed Sue Barker. Helen was so ill she fainted returning to her hotel room the night before the final. Cawley easily lost her second slam final to Goolagong (she lost the first as Gourlay in the '71 French) as she didn't get a game after 3-3 in the first set. Afterwards she said. "I'm not making excuses but I couldn't give my best. I would have forfeited if it hadn't been a final, I couldn't disappoint all those people."

The final was something of a mouthful for the umpire featuring Mrs Roger Cawley (Evonne Goolagong) and Mrs Robert Cawley (Helen Gourlay). In the end he gave up trying to get his head around who had won which point and resorted to the women’s Christian names

Even with all the problems, Kooyong set attendance records. Now the event will move to December, making it the last leg of the Grand Slam rather than the first. The ITF ruled that neither the men's or women's winner of this slam will be eligible for the Grand Slam in 1978.

The women's doubles title was divided due to rain. This remains the only ladies doubles slam decided in such a manner.

Draw Notes:

The #5 seed (who ????) withdrew. Seeds 6-8 were moved up a notch. The ITF site has Blount as #5 (up from 6) seed, Doerner as #6 (up from 7), and Nagelsen as #7 (up from 8). LL-Hermansen is in the spot of the other seed.

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

Summary:

Poor prize money meant a poor field, despite hopes that some of the world's top ten women who came to Australia for Fed Cup in early December would stay. Evert and King left right after Fed Cup. Aussie Stars Turnbull, Reid, Fromholtz and Virginia Wade of Britain entered warm up events with prize money of $75,000 US, but skipped the Aussie Open itself, which only had $35,000 US and a top prize of $6,000. It was no way to go about attracting a quality entry. This was the weakest quality ever, with even most Australian women in America chasing the big bucks.

4 of the top 7 seeds fell in the first 3 days. Within minutes of each other the top 2 seeds were beaten in quarterfinals. A huge crowd formed as word spread that Evers was about to knock off tournament favorite Sue Barker. Sue clawed back from 3-5 down and had two set points in the tiebreak, but Diane "urged on by the crowd as daylight faded, unleashed 4 winners to clinch the win." Sue hadn't practiced before Melbourne, nursing a bad back from Fed Cup a couple weeks previous.

Finalist Betsy Nagelsen had come to Australia only because her coach Jim Fannin was coming with two of his male charges. Betsy was once a top prospect in 1974 before injuries set her back. She upset #2 seed Tomanova, who complained of partying too much on New Year's Eve and getting an early morning phone call from back home. Upon reaching the final over plucky 5 ft tall Matison, Nagelsen declared of her effort, "Not bad for someone nobody knows."

Coming through the carnage was Chris O'Neil, so unknown she wasn't among the top 20 Aussie women. She "shrugged off the embarrasment of a misspelt surname on center court" to become the dark horse champion of all time among Grand Slam champs.

Chris was the first unseeded champ of either gender in Oz in 20 years. Her computer ranking coming into the Open was 111. To this day she remains the last Australian, male or female , to win her nation's singles championship.

Whatever her rank, Chris can proudly say she is a Grand Slam champion.

Summary:

For the first time in 18 years the top two seeds in the women’s draw at the Australian Open were overseas players. Neither top-seeded Virginia Ruzici of Romania, nor No.2-seeded Czechoslovakian Hana Mandlikova, lived up to their top billings, the former failing in the first round, the latter in the third round to No.5 seed Barbra Jordan of the USA. Hana was hindered by a number of footfaults in her losing QF.

In the end it was Jordan and fellow American Sharon Walsh who made it through to the final, Jordan’s 6-3 6-3 victory making her the first international woman to win the title since Virginia Wade in 1972.

Summary:

The first ever women's only Aussie Open, held the week before the men's event. Big time prize money of US $200,000 brought the best field in years Down Under. The big crowds the ladies attracted led to the 1981 event also being separate.

Winner Mandlikova claimed the final in 52 minutes, winning a Toyota car with her first prize check. It is her first of 4 slams.

Runner up Wendy Turnbull blasted the top women for accepting guarantee money to play, citing Evonne Goolagong in particular. "I don't think anyone should get any form of guarantee to come here and play", the "Rabbit" said. The pregnant Evonne was an upset victim of Mima Jausovec in round two.

There were at least 32 foreign entries, the first time foreigners have outnumbered native Aussies.

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

Summary:

With prize money of $200,000 and arguably the best field of the year the Australian Open has finally silenced any questions about it's status as a grand slam event. The women carried on with separate dates from the men for the second year. In 1981 they drew more fans the men did.

Evonne Goolagong was returning to the game and was awarded the #8 seed as a wild card, bumping Barbara Potter down to #9. In a dramatic match vs Leslie Allen Evonne came back from 2-4 15-40 in the third set to pull out a win before a wildly partisan crowd. The fans were so vocal that Leslie was on the verge of tears.

Other early seeds to struggle were Tracy Austin, never at home on grass, and Martina Navratiova, who was pushed to a third set by bothersome Kathy Jordan and a sore groin that had her in a bandaged right thigh. Qualifier Helena Sukova upset Potter, and poor Dianne fromholtz fled the interview room in tears after being routined by a teenage Bonnie Gadusek.

Quarterfinal day arrived with all 8 seeds still alive. First up saw Pam Shrive repeat her Wimbledon upset over Tracy Austin. Tracy won a controversial point in the tiebreak, but a steely Pam served 2 unreturnable serves to get to 6-3-taking the tiebreak 7-4. Afterwards Pam volunteered that, "Once I got grooved I playe well. There was a dusty call from a lob in the tiebreaker and I got really pumped up, really angry. I had a felling I wouldn't win it in 3 sets, so I had to put two good sets together in a row."

Unfortunately for Evonne she proved no match for Martina. She won the first 2 games and then got steamrolled in the second set. The score was so lopsided the crowd was given little opportunity to get into the encounter. Martina now led their head to head 14-13.

Evert-Mandlikova were third on. Hana was still gripping about being seeded 5th. In addition she was dealing with lower back pain,which had led her to withdraw from Sydney. Chris won a tight match 6-4 7-5. After the match Hana mentioned her bad back, while Chris said they "both made too many errors. It wasn't a good quality match. I[m not reallypleased with the way I played. Hana will make two errors and then blast a shot and its hard to get rhythm." Chris went on to say she knew Hana's back was an issue as the Czech didn't serve and volley in her usual style, electing to stay back on serve.

The last match finally gave the Aussies something to cheer for, as Wendy Turnbull upset Andrea Jaeger Turnbull's coaching relationship earlier in the year with Jaeger gave her insight into the American's game.
Wendy fought galliantly, saving 2 set points at 4-5 15-40 and 2 more in the tiebreak. She finally won on her 3rd match point. The Aussie sallied to the net often despite the bandages around her left thigh and right ankle.

By contrast the semis appeared predicatable. Turnbull put up a good fight but went down in straight sets, as did Shriver to her doubles partner Martina. Wendy haf beaten Chris only once in 15 matches. In Evert's word, "I never felt threatened. I always thought I could break her serve." Martina was willing to concede that Pam did put put pressure on her because Shriver was willing to come in off her second serve.

The final was a classic contrast in style. Chris and Martina has split sets a week earlier in Sydney. In that match Martina wilted down the strech. This time she secured an early led of 5-1 30-15. Surely it was the end? Not so quick. Evert clawed back to take 4 straight games as a stunned crowd couldn't believe it's eyes.

If Martina was going to crack as she did at the US Open now was the chance. Instead she won both games from 5-5 at 30 and won her first Australian Open. Martina had conquered both her nerves and the taken first prize in the year long Toyota series.

Martina: "I was as nervous as I've ever been. , I though I was going to hasve a heart attack at the end.. I knew I had to start well in the third but at 5-1 I thoughi I had it."

Chris: "She put a lot of pressure on me. I didn't finish the off the match when I was 4-3 ahead in the second. I usually raiase my game when I have to. I was tentative today but if I'm going to lose to anybody it might as well be her."

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

The men and women reunite to hold a joint event after two years apart.

The outside courts were under several inches of water from a freak rainstorm before the event. The few courts with tarps escaped, but most were damaged by the deluge. "Kooyong's inadequecies became embarrasingly obvious and the schedule was a nightmare, with John McEnroes's first match not played until the first Saturday."

Evert provided another blow when she withdrew with a foot injury. The fact that she played an exhibtion in Tokyo only days after her withdrawal angered officials. "Andrea Jaeger also pulled out at the 11th hour, suffering from a shoulder injury and virus."

Martina dropped only her 9th set all yeat as Jo Durie tested her in the quarters. A light rain fell the whole first set, which Durie won 6-4. At that point the refereee stopped play. The next day Martina was much more positive and aggressive, though Jo did have a 3-1 lead in the third. It was the highlight of women's play for the event.

In the final Jordan gamely fought back form 1-6 to 5-6 in the tiebreak before Martina won her 2nd Aussie title at Kooyong.


The Navratilova/Shriver dominance of doubles continued. They won all 3 slams they competed in this year, only the French (which Pam didn't enter) eluding them.

Summary:


Sukova's upset over Navratilova denies Martina a traditional grand slam (winning all 4 in one calendar year). Martina had won 6 straight slams since her loss in the French of 1983.

Evert's victory keeps intact her amazing run of winning a slam every year since 1974.

Summary:

The 1985 championship was the last to be staged in December. It had been 13 years since any woman had clinched both the Brisbane and Sydney lead-in tournaments and, having done so, the only thing standing in the way of Navratilova and a trifecta of Aussie titles was her old adversary Chris Evert. Squaring up for the 67th meeting of their rivalry, Navratilova extended her head-to-head record over Evert to 35–32 in a classic three set battle, 6-2 4-6 6-2. “Martina and I have pushed each other to get better and better,” said Evert Lloyd after the final. Martina remarked how the match was "tough on the nerves. It seems Chris and I always play great matches."

A hyper-aggressive Martina came to the net at every chance, rushing the net behind Evert's second serves as well as own deliveries. In the smothering first set Navratilova reeled off 12 straight points. Chris dug in in set two. She stayed on the baseline throughout the match, but manged to hold serve in act two. She got the crucial break in the 5th game and served it out at 5-4, but only after Martina had saved 7 set points.

Martina never let up on the pressure in the decider, and Chris ended up making errors under the constant barrage. Two breaks and 23 minutes (the match was 2 hours 24 long) later it was all over.

The final decided not only the #1 title, but the world #1 for 1985. Afterwards Evert conceded that "Martina must be considered #1 now." An elated Martina declared, "Even though I lost the second set I felt in control. I knew this was it. I knew it was for the #1 ranking. I was going to go after it, and I did."

Both finalists had rocky semis. Claudia Kohde-Kilsch thought she had won the second set at 6-5 in the tiebreak as an Evert forehand sailed long. TV replays showed the ball clearly out. Instead it was called good, and 2 points later it was all over. When asked later if she felt robbed the German replied, "I think so, but you must live with that in tennis." . "I was just starting to play well, and maybe I would have had a chance in the third set."

Chris felt she should have put the match away earlier, as she led 6-1 4-1 before Claudia launched a comeback. Evert_Lloyd: "I didn't see the ball. It's unfortunate it happened at that point-but that's tennis. I wouldn't dwell on it. These things happen. It came at a crucial time, so it was a break for me."

Players complained about the center court surface-coming at a time when a futures site and surface for trhe event is up in the air. john Mcenroe was very vocal. "The court is simply not good enough to play a Grand Slam tournament on." The top women chimed in as well.

Navratilova: "I found it worse than last year. The grass is very thin and there is a lot more brown than green. It's just not very plush and the roll it so it's very hard."

Evert (who struggled past Nagelso nin 3 sets): "It court certainly favors the underdog. It is hard, but seems slippery."

By a trick of the calendar no Aussie Open is held in 1986. The gap is caused by moving the event from late in the year back to its old time slot in early January. Two Australian Opens were held in calendar year 1977, making up for "the one that got away". To make the season more managable and create a big event in the fall the WTA moved the tour final ahead from March to November. Thus, while no Aussie Open was held in 1986, there were two Virginia Slims tour championships.

Summary:

With construction work on Melbourne’s new National Tennis Centre well under way, Australian Open 1987 marked the end of an era with the tournament staged at Kooyong, and on grass, for the last time. The new, January, timeslot failed to lure Steffi Graf and Chris Evert Down Under so it was left to Martina Navratilova to fly the flag for the world’s top three in the women’s draw. Her 7-5 7-6(2) final defeat, at the hands of No.2 seed Hana Mandlikova, signified the end of a 58-match winning streak that dated back to the 1986 French Open.

Mixed Doubles returned to the Australian Open after 18-year-absence. Americans Zina Garrison and Sherwood Stewart defeating British pair Anne Hobbs and Andrew Castle, 3-6 7-6 (5)6-3.

Summary:

Australian Open 1988 was staged at its new home - Flinders Park (now Melbourne Park). Named after 18th century explorer Matthew Flinders, the venue’s centrepiece, a $70,000, 14,820-seat stadium, was the first Grand Slam arena with a retractable roof. The complex also boasted green, Rebound Ace hard courts, air conditioned corporate boxes and a state-of-the-art function centre. No.14-seeded Aussie Dianne Fromholtz Ballestrat was first to play on the new centre court and was promptly beaten by qualifier and world No.304 Wendy Wood. The sliding roof was employed for the women’s final, a match losing finalist Chris Evert described as “the weirdest I ever played”. It is still the only women's slam final contested indoors.It was also to be the last Slam final she ever played. In taking the title 6-1 7-6(3), Steffi Graf secured the first leg of her ‘Golden’ Grand Slam, going on to win the French, Wimbledon and US Open titles and an Olympic gold medal in Seoul.

Steffi blitzed Evert 6-1 5-1 before Chris got the crowd going with a late comeback. This was Evert's last slam final.

The dominant Graf became the first champ not to drop a set since Chris O'Neil in 1978. Losing quarterfinalist and '87 winner Mandlikova remarked, "If she hits the ball any harder I don't know what we're going to do".

Very first mixed doubles entry for Jana Novotna and first ever Grand Slam title for her.

Record attendance of 245,000 was set.

Draw notes:

Mixed Doubles: 3rd seeded team [?] withdrew replayed by alternates: O'Neill/Kratzmann


--------------------------------------------------
Summary:

Steffi Graf continues her unstoppable run of Slams, taking her 5th consecutive major at Flinders Park. Utterly dominat from round one, she double-bageled Simpson in the 2R, dropping 25 points in total. In the other half a vulnerable Martina Navratilova fended off a set point in the second set vs Jenny Byrne.

The next round is more comfortable for the former world #1. She praised the facility after playing inside the roof. "It's the best indoor arena in the world. Visibility is great. I wish all the matches were indoors."

Hana Mandliova, 1987 champ, continued to struggle. She saved 3 match points in topping Bollegraf 9-7 in the third. The gig was up for her in the 4R vs Martina. Hana double faulted 9 times and lost serve 5 times in all to tamely go down. "I knew I had to serve well because she was going to come to the net and put pressure on me. I just didn't do it."

Lindqvist put out #4 seed Sheriver early and then fell victim herslef to Kiwi Belinda Cordwell in the quarters. Cordwell hadn't made a semi in all of 1988. "I'll be in fairly respectable company", she said, "but I'm playing well and deserve to be there."

The next shocker was Sukova-Navratilova. Helena rarely beats Martina (her record is 3-25 coming in to this match), but when she does it is often on big a big stage like this. The match had shades of their 1984 semi, when Sukova denied Navratilova the Grand Slam. This year Martina served for the match twice, being broken both times with sizzling backhand winners from the gangly challenger. Sadly the dramtic match ended with a double fault.

Expectations ran high for at least a close match as doubles partners Sabatini and Graf came on court. Steffi quickly snuffed out Gaby's hopes, destroying her with a vaporizing forehand. After 2-2 Steffi lost only 14 more points the entire way. "I wanted to win badly", Steffi said later, :and she didn't seem to be physically there. I played well and she was not at her best. She wasn't moving as well as she can."

Sabatini declared that Sukova had no hope in the finals. Earlier the Czech clamed down her erring backhand to get by in 3 sets.

Sabatini was proven right, but at least Sukova put up a fight. In 100 degree heat she kept Graf on court for 71 minutes and 20 games, both the longest Steffi had to be on court the whole event.

Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver won their seventh consecutive AO doubles title. Their victory was a tournament record for a pair, made Navratilova the winner of most Aussie women’s doubles titles, and was their last major title together, the duo splitting before the US Open

Hi Rollo,

Here are a few more first names from some of the results. You might have some already, but just in case.

1922 Elliot = Mary Elliot
1923 Turner = Beryl Spowers (Mrs H Turner)
1924 Todd = Gertrude Newbeging (Mrs Todd)
Thyne = Nell Thyne
McIver = Mavis McIver (later Mrs McKay)
Rowe = Flora Rowe
1927 Stephens = Ruth Stephens
1928 Conway = Floris St-George (Mrs Roland Conway)
1930 Smith = Peter Smith
1932 Lawrence = Edna Lawrence
1933 Woodward = Kath Woodward
McGrath = Mollie McGrath
Derham = Mary Derham (later Mrs Richardson)
1934 Lewis = Nancy Lewis
1935 Mauger = Doris Mauger
1937 Hunt = Dr. Ella Hunt
Peach = Beth Peach
Webb = Ida Webb
McTaggert = Helen Sloan (Mrs RE McTaggett)

I will "sweep" the results again to catch and mop up.


Question: can we safely assume Peter Smith (from 1930) is a Mrs Peter Smith?

GeeTee
Jul 19th, 2010, 12:06 AM
Excellent work Andrew. They were probably the next lot I was gonna be digging for so that's saved a ton of work. We've had a good run of late! :)

I have a few more from minor stars who didn't feature in the Aussie champs. Maybe we should list all of the players in one of the Aussie threads so we have a common list to refer to (and hopefully complete)??

What do you and Rollo and any other sad geeks ;) who are interested in this kinda stuff think??



PS - Here's another Tasmanian name:

Minnie Richardson (Mrs James Magner from 1928) who reached the Aussie SF in 1925.

In 1928, she was on her way to play tennis in England and hoping to compete at Wimbledon but got engaged to the ship's doctor en route and was married in London during June. I can't find any record of her playing in England that year, but perhaps she had other things on her mind.. The couple returned to Tasmania in 1929 and she began to concentrate on golf, but she did return to play doubles, winning the 1934 Tasmanian championship with Mrs Bond.

I, speaking as one sad geek, would love to see that. What I have collected, and could copy, is a list of 602 Australian women who began play before 1961. If that would help get you started, tell me where to post and I will. I've been adding some things from your recent additions, but not everything. It's big shortfall is that it's somewhat arbitrary as to whether I use maiden or married name for alphabetizing. It does include the first year that they played, as far as I know.

Rollo

I have an idea-what if we finally tried a permanent version of a Name Roster for all the women, but primarily concentrating first on women who contested the Aussie?

This would allow both David and I to edit in any additions. In addition we could scoop up all of those hard to find Aussie women, and finally it would give us a "control" factor by keeping track of who we have done by noting which slam we are working on. (For example-after adding all of the 1922 Aussie contestants we could move on to 1923, etc).

It's big shortfall is that it's somewhat arbitrary as to whether I use maiden or married name for alphabetizing. It does include the first year that they played, as far as I know.

I have a way around this. We simply cross-reference them.

Using Margaret Court as an example (and we could come up with a format agreed on by the majority)

Main Entry:

Court, Margaret (nee Margaret Smith) (Australia)
Born
Died
Married
Children

Nickname(s): "The Arm"

Career Span: 1958-1975. Played under maiden name until 1967.

other info (we could set a maximum number of lines)

Alternate entry:

Smith, Margaret SEE COURT


That would direct anyone looking for Margaret Smith to go to the main entry under Court.


The trick would be to agree to a template/format (easy enough) and then laying out a large number of posts in approximate alphabetical order.

And then finally David or I could make it a sticky thread so it becomes permanent:)

We could keep a separate thread for submissions and discussion, with David and I adding "Done!" or 'Finished" whenever we add names to the list. The other neat thing about a discussion thread is we could iron out any debate over which entry should be the main name.

Thoughts?

DavidK
Jul 22nd, 2010, 10:04 PM
Well, it certainly seems ambitious. My first reaction was maybe we should start with Albania and work our way through the alphabet - at least we might get one country done.

I have about 6,700 players in my database from the beginning to 1961 and Ugarte and others are finding more all the time. Typing all that out in text format seems huge. Is there any way those involved could have access to a shared Excel file? I could copy my Access database into that and then we could add fields as we dreamed them up - like the ones you mentioned above. Anyone with clearance could add names, marriages, birthdates etc. Just an idea - I have no idea if that's technically possible.

Hi folks adn especially our Aussie researchers:

In incorporating the 1952 Australian Open draw into the 1952 thread I crosschecked what Andrew Tas posted (8 years ago!!!) with what Wikipedia has. I added some first names where that was the only discrepancy, but I came up with these 4 more major discrepancies:

Andrew has: Wikipedia has:

J. Diggle ----- Dorothy

Hello. Wow 8 years ago. How time gets away. I can confirm that Wikipedia is correct on all counts. Jill Olerenshaw's maiden name though is Tuckfield (Husband's first name is Ian).

There's problems here.

Tommasi has listed 8 seeds for 1934 and 1939 and in other years there are differences in his lists.

Are we to assume he's wrong?

Hmmm. I don't want to assume anything. I'm going to proceed with caution until we clear these up. Now that we have access to Aussie newspapers perhaps they can confirm the seeds?

I added the 1940 seeds today.

Well, Chris, I didn't make up my lists of seeded players. They all came from Australian newspapers. I've added the references. You can look them up at:

Use search terms tennis+Australia+seed. Then, limit the results to January of each year and exclude advertisements.

But that's why I'm asking.

There's no point in posting Tommasi's lists if they're open to question.

Rollo isn't fully sure and I suppose you can't be 100% certain but it would seem logical to me that those posted in the Australian Newspapers at the time are almost certainly the correct ones.

Hello. I have the same seeds from the Australian newspapers for 1936, 37, 38, 39 and 1940 as does Austinrunner. I think that we have to take these seeds rather than those of Tommasi as we do not know his sources. But saying this I cant see any differences between what I have and what he has, apart from some missing positions in his. I have the 1935 seeds but I have 8 seeds for 1939. I also have found a reference to 8 seeds for 1934.

All the papers only published the first 4 seeds for the women for 1934 but this article (http://newspapers.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/17041191?searchTerm=tennis+seed) states that Hartigan, Valkenburg, Chitty and Bickerton are in the top half of the draw while Molesworth, Hall, Westacott and Le Messurier are in the bottom half. These names correspond to Tommasi and therefore in this case I believe that Tommasi may be correct.

Here are the 1939 & 35 seeds and 2 other years not mentioned.

1927
1. Boyd
2. Akhurst
3. Lance Harper
4. Bickerton
5. G Toyne
6. Cox
7. Le Messurier
8. M Richardson

1928
1. Boyd
2. Akhurst
3. Bickerton
4. Lance Harper


1935

1. Dorothy Round
2. Joan Hartigan
3. Emily Hood Westacott
4. Nancye Lyle
5. Evelyn Dearman
6. Louie Bickerton
7. Nell Hall Hopman
8. May Blick

Joan Hartigan withdrew before the start of the tournament and Joan Walters was replaced in her spot.

1939
1. Wynne
2. Coyne
3. Hall Hopman
4. Hartigan
5. Stevenson
6. Hood Westacott
7. Hardcastle
8. Berryman

The article in my last post relates to the 1934 seeds but I wrote 1935 in the post instead on 1934 but now it is corrected.

For the 1935 seeds I found this article from the Argus on December 21 1934. The 1035 Australian started just after New year.

Thanks to Andy T for draw and Chris Whiteside for seedings (source: Rino Tomassi) :)

Adelaide. January 20 to 30.

Draw of 40, of whom 7 are foreigners.

The NYT reports that Helen Amos d. Shirley Collins (NZ) 6-2 6-2 in 2R. (?)

12 seeds: Seedings according to Rino Tommasi

01 Richey (aka #1 Foreign)
02 Turner (aka #1 Domestic)
03 Casals (aka #2 Foreign)
04 Melville (aka #2 Domestic)
05 Durr (aka #3 Foreign)
06 Krantzcke
07 Stove (aka #4 Foreign)
08 Lehane-O'Neill
09 Tegart
10 Sherriff
11 Robinson
12 Toyne

These seeds are incorrect according to the San Antonio Express, January 17, 1967. The seeds were as follows:

Domestic
01 Lesley Turner Bowrey
02 Kerry Melville Reid
03 Karen Krantzcke
04 Jan Lehane O'Neill
05 Judy Tegart Dalton
06 Gail Sherriff Chanfreau Lovera
07 Lorraine Coghlan Robinson
08 Fay Toyne

Foreign
01 Nancy Richey
02 Rosemary Casals
03 Francoise Durr
04 Betty Stove

Also, was it Kerry Harris that Richey played in the second round? The draw here lists Lesley Hunt twice in the first round.

I want to thank John Dolan for pointing out an important error in the 1972 results. I had the Goolagong-Gouraly semi score off.

And what can I say GeeTee-you just saved me HOURS of hard work-thank you!

I did have a couple of questions for you:

Are you 100% certain the 1924 Mrs Todd is Marjorie Mountain? It's probably my error, but for some reason my notes indicate that Gertrude Newbigging md a Mr A Todd.

Did I get that wrong-or am I just confusing Mrs Todd's?

And I'm wondering if the D Coate in the 1937 draw is a relation to Connie Coate (later Wilson) or just my error and it's really Connie Wilson.

Hi Rollo, the Newbigging/Todd error is one of mine which AndrewTas cleared up a while back. Newbigging was a NSW player who married a Mr Todd, but doesn't seem to have kept playing at the top level. Victorian Mountain married a Mr Todd in Melbourne and did keep playing into the late 20s. I can't quite remember which thread we discussed this in, but one of the Aussie ones I guess.

And yes, Connie Coate lost to Dot Stevenson in 1937.

Thanks as always GeeTee. I'm slowly but surely combing through to add first names (for men and women) as well as seeds.

The Aussie name list you put together makes it easier-I've cross-referenced it and dive into the Trove newspaper site to try and add names.

I'd be lost without you GeeTee.

Yes, sometimes it fells like slow and steady. I just have bear in mind that the turtle finally DID cross the finish line.

A question about Freudenstein. Was her frist name Edith or Edna? I'm guessing Edna is wrong?


I also owe you a big debt for your name list. I've copied it and enlarged upon it, using your comments, other contributions and what I've discovered trolling around Trove. When I've formatted all the Aussie results through 2011 would it be ok if we compare notes?

What I would like to do is set some standards for names. For example, using "Dot" Moran or "Dorothy" Moran consistently rather than switching.

Once we have those standards in place when I set about editing results in the future I think we'll have an improved product.

I'm excited. So far I've edited up to 1960!

Yep Edith M FREUDENSTEIN (born 1903) (Mrs Albert I HAGUE from 1930)

Sure! You show me yours and... lol.

The NLA's newspaper search is fantastic although it can still contain plenty of erroneous info. Many a time I've seen a name for a player (eg 'Annie') and thought it confirmed and later see that the more common usage is another name (eg 'Nellie') and have had to revise my lists or check further. Like us, the journalists of the day were only human and made errors themselves. Unfortunately as many original stories were syndicated to other Australian newspapers, you can see the mistake replicated across a range of sources and it can be a bit of trap. Often I've needed to do a heap of cross-referencing using Births, Deaths & Marriages data or visiting the National Library to check other resources that aren't online yet.

I think in the future, I might start another thread (later) about 'Aussie Players' (or similar) and include a short biography of each with additional trivia. I still have tons more name (and other details) in a variety of files that I should consolidate into a master (mistress?) file.

Although there is a thread for married names of players, there are some Aussies who didn't ever play overseas (sob!) or even in many AOs. So I think it might be a sensible idea to post Aussie data in its own thread. Some of this could then be included in the world thread for more significant players.

What I would like to do is set some standards for names. For example, using "Dot" Moran or "Dorothy" Moran consistently rather than switching.
Agree. For what it's worth, I'd suggest standards should include (or at least consider):

1)using ONLY the player's maiden name while they are playing as a single woman (eg Daphne Akhurst ONLY during all of her AO Singles tournaments). I find it strange to list 'Nell Hall' as 'Nell Hall Hopman' from her first tournament if she won't marry for another ten years.
2)using 'Daphne Akhurst-Cozens' for the first AO she plays as a married woman (eg 1931 AO doubles)
3)using the married name 'Daphne Cozens' thereafter
4)where a player first competes in the AO as a married woman it lists her as Beryl Turner (perhaps with a note like "Leila Howard Beryl Leslie 'Beryl' SPOWERS married Henry Macauley TURNER in 1915") for the first entry and just 'Beryl Turner' afterwards. Listing such a player as Beryl Spowers-Turner for her first entry might lead some to believe she has a hyphenated family name.
5)where a player only competes as a single woman, only her last appearance should denote the future married name (eg 'Joyce Fitch (Mrs John VAN RYMER from 1951')
6)with a preferred name maybe the first mention should say something like "Adela Gwyn 'Gwen' HACK" and any future results should just list 'Gwen Hack'

What u think?

Once we have those standards in place when I set about editing results in the future I think we'll have an improved product.
Agreed :)

I'm excited. So far I've edited up to 1960!
Cool. It can be fun discovering and adding in all these 'lost' jigsaw puzzle pieces can't it?

The AO official site is truly hopeless. I'm not sure it's a coincidence they finally have some historical data on the site as I wrote them a year or two back, complaining about the major errors in their historical summary and said it was embarrassing and looked like it had been written by a work experience student. :devil:

There are still hundreds of errors and I'm wondering where their research has come from (wikipedia?). Maybe I'll write them again enquiring about this. I'm sure they'll love to hear from me! :)

GeeTee
Jul 28th, 2011, 04:20 AM
I also wonder whether it might be an idea to list the states that the women played for? This can sometimes help differentiate between players of similar names (eg Muff Wilson NSW and Margaret Wilson VIC) although plenty of players did change their residence/state eligibility in their careers.

It woudn't help with the two Miss Stevensons/Mrs Waddells from Victoria though. Names like these would nearly always need to be spelled out in full:

Gwynneth 'Gwen' STEVENSON (Mrs Graham WADDELL after 1943) - died 15 January 1950
Dorothy 'Dot' STEVENSON (Mrs John Victor 'Jack' WADDELL from 1 Feb 1940)

Yes - the sisters married brothers.

Couple more I just noticed:

"Gladys Patterson" (1922) is actually "Grace PATERSON", daughter of 'Banjo' Paterson who wrote Waltzing Matilda among other famous songs and poems.

Mrs Harold S 'Barney UTZ was formerly Gwen CHIPLIN.

F Cameron (20s) is Flora CAMERON.

and in addition to my other thoughts above:

7) Where the first name of a player is not known, she should be listed as 'S Smith' (if referenced in results as 'Miss S Smith') or MRS S Smith (if listed as married). I think this would help prevent confusion and help to track down other missing names.

Sorry to be so longwinded. Hope these help!

Could Syd Carr and Syd Hocking be one and the same?

Rollo - since you're only going up to 1926 with the AO for your November project, here are a few details and notes for later Aussie titles. I'll save the other ones for those threads.

1927
Nell WEBB VIC
Spencer F MILLEAR VIC
Rupert L SHEPHERD SA
Harold N WILSON QLD
Thomas E ROBINSON VIC

Stanley Gordon LUM, son of Stephen LUM - a Melbourne merchant - was one of the leading junior players in Victoria and represented that state in Linton Cup competitions. He twice won the South Australian junior singles and doubles championships. Lum was born in Melbourne in 1906, studied at Scotch College and was coached in tennis by Gerald Patterson. He had never left Australia until he was invited to represent China in the Far Eastern Games of 1927. He went on to captain China in the Davis Cup and play at Wimbledon.

1929
J Colin GREGORY GBR (mixed with Mall MOLESWORTH)
Ian G COLLINS GBR (mixed with Sylvia Harper)
William Lyall (Lyall) REYNOLDS WA
Sydney 'Syd' HOCKING (married Gordon BENDER in 1930) SA
Ivy BOWEN
Margaret TAYLOR SA
Peter HOOPER SA
Mrs Eric DAY (nee Nancy WEBB) SA
Bertha KAY SA
FR 'Ray' HONE (mixed with Edna LAWRENCE)
RB 'Ron' HONE (mixed with Dot WESTON)

There were a number of tennis playing Hones from South Australia:

Dr and Mrs Frank S HONE (Frank was a champion in pioneer days) appear to have had six children:

- Dr F Raymond 'Ray' HONE
- Dr Garton M 'Gar' HONE
- Mr Ronald B 'Ron' HONE
- Miss Joyce HONE
- Miss Ruth HONE
- Mr Brian William HONE (born 1908)

Strangely, for this family, Ron Hone was NOT a Doctor, but he married one!

Brian was a very good tennis player and a talented Australian Rules footballer, but was better known as a first-class cricketer. He also excelled academically and was selected as a 1930 Rhodes Scholar.

In 1929, even though Brian and sister Ruth did not enter, Ray, Gar, Ron and Joyce all played in the Australian Championships - possibly a record for siblings in the same Grand Slam tournament.

1932
Robert RP BARBOUR
Allan Walton KNIGHT (1910-1998) - won Australian Real/Royal Tennis Championship for 11 successive years to 1951

Nice suggestion LKK. I will do this. I still need to update complete 2013.

I added some names for 1939. The 1939 draw is now 100% complete!There are no missing first names in our draw!

Draw Notes:

Ursula Bere usually listed as MU Bere.
Miss Hopkins was from Victoria.
Miss McDougall (in doubles draw) was from Western Australia
Minnie Richardson listed as MU Richardson
Pauline Spencer-Parsons is listed as B Parsons on the official Aussie website.

Daphne Akhurst's default in singles altered the doubles draws. Seeds were kept the same-with O'Hara Wood taking her place in the doubles and Youtha Anthony replacing Akhurst in the mixed.


Melbourne Argus

There was a B Parsons playing in Melbourne and country Victoria from 1924 to 1928. The local newspapers of the time also have B Parsons listed.

thank you kindly Andrew Tas:)

I have put the name back in 1927 as B Parsons.

Pauline Spencer-Parsons seems to date from a later period (circa 1933-36) and was primarily a Tasmanian player.

Thanks to Jimbo for finding an error. For 1971 "Emmerson" should be Joy Emerson.

I have corrected the error.

Thanks Jimbo:)

Corrected and updated the 1946 draw. I found the identity of Mrs Ray J Cock. Her maiden name was Doreen Fleet.

Correction made to the 1971 draw. Thanks to Andrew Tas for solving the identity of Mrs Emmerson.:worship:

Mrs Emmerson=Jill Emmerson, nee Blackman. [Per Andrew Tas] World of Tennis has Emmerson as the spelling. The Sydney Morning Herald also confirms this on March 11 1971.
Jill Blackman played after she got married into the mid 1970's mainly in and around Sydney.

2014 singles up to date. Will complete doubles events by weeks end.

Then to work completing the Aussie through all the years. We are in good luck due to the early work of our dedicated Aussies of the past, namely Andrew Tas and GeeTee:worship:

Building on their work and using the Australian Trove website I am confident we are creeping closer to 100% when it comes to results and first/last names.

The Aussie web site also does a great job putting out draws, so we drawon that source as well. Note that the Blast has more complete draws (and names) for early years however.

Youtha Anthony/H Gray-bye

Quarterfinals

Akhurst/Bickerton[1] d. Anthony/Gray 6-3 6-0

Sources: Andrew Tas provided the results

I don't know why I didn't have this before but H Gray is actually Mrs. H Gray who was Helen Margaret Outhwaite. She also played in the 1930 doubles.
