Draw notes:

Mrs D Hardingham=nee Dawn Kent)

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.

On the eve of Wimbledon Louise Brough withdraws from Queen's in a last ditch effort to rest in defense her Wimbledon crown. Brough has owned Wimbledon for 3 year's running. Louise hurt her arm earlier in the year and was unable to play the French.

5,000 see a baseline battle in the final, Chaffee having previously knoked off top seed DuPont. Still tired from the exhausting semi (Nancy defualted in the doubles she was so spent), the hard hitting Californain quiklt dropped 4 games. Just then a change in the atmosphere came to her aid. A heavy mist spread across the court. Then funeral music came blaring out of the BBC Radio box in the stands. Chaffee "perked up" and made it a match. "But the mist stopped. The music stopped. And the skies brightened"
First set to Fry, whose first serve "had less punch than a teetotaler's wedding", but is infinitely steadier.
As she walked off court Chaffee said "I feel like I'm 85."

Pat Todd announces that she was unable to come to an agreement with the USTA to ppay expenses to go fly to England for the championships. As she cannot pay out of pocket she will miss Wimbledon. The All-England Club had seeded Mrs Tood at #6.

Eve of Wimbledon betting odds: 2-1 for Brough, DuPont and Hart. 8-1 for Fry.

---------------------------------------------
#6 seed Pat Todd withdraws when the UST refuses to finance her, and is replaced by Dutchwoman Couquerque-last seen in the 1930s! British women's tennis suffers a new low point as only one woman is among the 8 seeds.

Doris' dream comes true as she finally wins Wimbledon, routing best friend Fry in a one sided final. Wins in doubles and the mixed are icing on the cake.

Before play starts officials warn that there will be "no Bikini bathing dresses", a not so sublte swipe at the fashions exhibited by Gussie Moran in 1950. The chairman stated that :We don't like this business of running the thing into a dress show." Wightman Cup captian and "mother" was told to lecture her girls on proper dress decorum.

Though unseeded Gibson opens on the famous Centre Court. She hit through her nervousness convincing British pundits that she is a future star in the making.

Todd stages a spectacular comeback from 1-4 down, saving 3 match points when Mo served for the match at 5-4 40-0. Pat's backhand and net play are the keys to her victory. This is Connolly's first defeat since earlier in the year.

In the final Bev hits many fine and penetrating shots. She lacks confidence at the net though, ceding
a vital area to the experienced Todd, who is more comforatable volleying. The NYT wrote "the second set was close to a rout. Mrs Todd flew around the court, Scored heavily with her backhand, and kept on a pressure that forced Miss Baker to hit ball after ball out of court."

There were 18 service breaks in the final. Mo may have been affected by a foot injury earlier in the week as her ran into a chair while chasing a lob. The NYT reported "Her control of her jolting drives off of both sides were glaringly off as she tried to pound first Ms Tood's forehand, and then her strong backhand." Nearly 5,000 showed on finals day.

In the quarters Gibson picks off some spectacular volleys; it her errors that prove to be her undoing.

-----------------------------------
3 time defending champ DuPont was forced out at the last minute with back spasms, and Louise Brough was also unable to compete. They were also unable to defend their doubles title, where incredibly they had won every US doubles from 1942.With former champs Brough and Dupont not playing Hart was the odd's on favorite to win. She encountered some resistence in the quarters when Chaffee pulled up from 2-4 with a "bombardment of forehands" before Doris righted herself.

15,000 fans decided not to leave despite dark skies to get the chance to see 16 year old Mo Connolly. Hart was having none of it. When she went on court for her semi vs. little Mo Connolly it was all Hart as she swept out to 4 love lead. Then came a sudden reversal of fortune. Connolly "brought roars from the crowd with her jolting drives" as she knocked off winner after winner to take the opeing set as a steady drizzle fell. Play was suspended after the first set. The next day "the blonde little Californian took up the bombardment where she left off" before a Labor Day crowd of 12,000.

In the final Fry decided to stay back rather than face the bullets that have old timers evoking the name of Helen Wills. It was such a baseline affair that not a single passing shot was hit until the last game. Only 2,500 came out for the Tuesday final, a tense battle of wills that was in doubt to the very end. It's so nerve racking that Mo's coach Eleanor Tennant faints in her box courtside as Mo lets out a scream of joy on match point.

- your final is the same that, in the same day, you had written about 1950 Cumberland Club, Patsy Rodgers d. Mrs J. David 6-4, 6-0
http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=34550737&postcount=206

- Mrs J. David, that is the former Joey Physick, divorced and married John Michael Lloyd on 14 August 1950, and you had already written her new surname some minutes before, about 1951 Phyllis Court:
Georgie Woodgate d. Mrs J. Lloyd 6-2, 6-2
http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=34551273&postcount=108

therefore: as in 1951 Joey Physick was already Mrs J. Lloyd and no more Mrs J. David, is possible that you, for some reason, have mixed up, and written the 1950 Cumberland Club final as 1951 Lowther final.
