began March 5, Riviera Championships, Mentone, France (Clay)

FI: Vera Warden (US) d. Amy Ransome (GB) 8-6 6-3*

MX: Amy Ransome (GB)/Tony Wilding (NZ) d. Agnes Morton (GB)/Charles R Allen (GB) 6-3 6-1

According to Lawn Tennis and Badminton this tournament started on March 5. The article on the tournament was published in the April 4, 1906 issue (pp. 521-522) but does not mention a begin or end date. However several earlier issues have an advert for the tournament which mention that the Riviera Championships (Fifth International Tournament) was scheduled to start on March 5th, 1906.

The score of the ladies final should be rechecked as the article mentions "Miss Warden showed great pluck in her match with Miss Ransome, as the latter actually stood at 5/2 and 40/30 in the final set.".

MX: Toni Popp (Ger)*/Laurie Doherty (GB) d. Toupie Lowther (GB)/Arthur Gore (GB) 6-0 6-2

LTAB confirms these dates; in the April 4, 1906 issue, p.524 it mentions "The open events of the Nice Lawn Tennis Club's twelfth annual lawn tennis tournament were brought to a successful conclusion on the 19th ult. by the victory of ...." and earlier tournament adverts mention March 12 as the tournament start date.

We also had a score (source?) indicating the mixed winner was Countess Clara von der Schulenburg, Toni Popp's sister. Later versions of tennis annuals also indicate Schulenburg as the winner. Could she have been using her sister's name as a pseudonym?

This tournament had not been held in 1905. Payten defended her doubles title, but illness prevented her from doing so in the singles.

Sydney Morning Herald (13 March 1906)

"Miss Payten (was) but a pale image of her usual self, and to those who know her play it was almost painful to see her reduced by sickness to an absolute inability to run for a ball out of her reach. Still she played a fine game. Fortunately Miss Payten has practically recovered from her sickness, and next year she may win back all her championships."

Note the spelling of the finalist is not certain. Also we are lacking the exact score for the doubles final and last set score for the mixed final.


Could not find an article on this tournament in LTAB and Vienna is also not shown in the list of tournaments that it publishes in most issues. But the Prague article mentions "In the Open Ladies' Doubles, Frau Amende and Frau Maschka beat the Hungarian pair, the sisters Madarasz and Cserry — a somewhat surprising result, as the latter pair only a fortnight before beat the former pair in the Open Ladies' Doubles at Vienna." (LTAB, July 4, 1906, p.220) So there was a Vienna tournament held around the last week of May.

Found a source after some searching in the Czech National Library Archive Kramerius. The tournament was the "Internationales Jubiläums-Turnier des Wiener Bicycle-Klub" held at the Prater ("Wiener Bicycle Club" is the current "Wiener Park Club"). The various events had separate names. A men's singles event was called "Meisterschaft des Kontinents" (Championship of the Continent). A men's and women's singles event were held for the "Meisterschaft von Niederösterreich" (Championship of Lower Austria). The women's doubles event was called "Doppelspiel-Meisterschaft von Oesterreich" (Doubles Championship of Austria) and finally the mixed doubles event was held for the "Meisterschaft von Wien" (Championship of Vienna).

*Draw note: The first round also referred to as the Preliminary Round

May Sutton returned to Britain in 1906,landing at Liverpool on May 31st in her quest to defend her Wimbledon title. This final marked her first loss in singles outside of North America. A large crowd turned out for the Douglass-Sutton match. May started with her usual hard hitting. With the first chapter tied at 5 apiece Dorothea finishes it off with, in Little's words, "some seemingly impossible backhand returns" (p 10 of May Sutton, by Alan Little). Sutton tries to change tactics by coming to net in set two to no avail, as Douglass wins it on her 4th match point. According to the New York Times May "tired perceptibly" in the second set.

Earlier in the week Charlotte Sterry gave Sutton a rough match with her clever combination of drop shots and volleys.

There was no Challenge Round in the mixed doubles event at this tournament this year.

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 13, 1906, we have a detailed report on the final:

“Miss Douglass was known to be in magnificent form, by her previous performances this year; and the writer, who won a small bet of 2 to 1 on her, has never seen Miss Douglass play better. Miss Sutton started serving, and deuce was called twice before the first game fell to Miss Douglass. Throughout the match, and especially in the first set, Miss Sutton kept a much better length than Miss Douglass, Miss Douglass sending nearly every return to Miss Sutton’s backhand, and never sending them very deep. Her game seemed to get Miss Sutton out of position by driving the ball across the court on to Miss Sutton’s backhand, and then to finish the rest by one of her famous forehand cross-court drives. And so well did she play that the first three games quickly fell to her.

“Miss Sutton now seemed to wake up, and by means of her wonderful forehand drives, won the next four games straight off the reel, the fourth being a love game. Four-three was called in Miss Sutton’s favour, and English hopes began to sink somewhat – recalling Miss Sutton’s performances in this country last year. However, Miss Douglass won the next game with the loss of one point. Four games all!

“The ninth also fell to Miss Douglass on Miss Sutton’s service, but she lost her own service and five games all was called. Tremendous excitement prevailed. Which would win the first set? But Miss Douglass rose equal to the occasion, and by means of superb play and some seemingly impossible backhand saves, won the next two games with the loss of only two points. First set to Miss Douglass at 7 games to 5; and Miss Sutton lost her second set in open singles.

“Miss Sutton started the service in the second set, and got to 30-love, only to lose the game after deuce had been called. The next, a deuce game, fell to Miss Sutton. One game all! But Miss Douglass now played as she never played before, and by means of her magnificent forehand cross-court drives, and some wonderful backhand saves, quickly brought the score up to 5 games to 2 in her favour. In the eighth and last game Miss Sutton completely altered her tactics. Both ladies had hitherto played entirely from the baseline, but now Miss Sutton, realising that something desperate must be attempted, came up to the net and volleyed, but although this was partially successful, it was too late to alter her style of play.

“Miss Douglass was serving and got to 30-love. Miss Sutton, however, won the next two points by some good volleying, but lost the next, and 40-30 was called in Miss Douglass’s favour. The latter got four times within a point of the match before winning the set and match, Miss Sutton bringing the score back to deuce by well-placed kills. Then ‘vantage to Miss Douglass was again called, and after a good rally the game fell to Miss Douglass, and the set at 6-2. And Miss Sutton retired defeated for the first time in open singles for over two years.”

Summary

Defending champ Bessie Moore and the tennis sensation May Sutton are both absent, dimming much interest. All eyes are on Sutton as she competes in England for the coveted Wimbledon prize. The women's final is on Saturday the 23rd. Rain delays the doubles and mixed finals until Monday.

The NYT reports that the women's doubles final was taken by a team "that took few chances, and played mostly from the back court. Miss Homans was the only one of the four who did any volleying."

Barger-Wallach started out strong in the final. Her "puzzling underarm service, coupled with her very strong forearm drives had Miss Homans completely at sea", and ran ahead 4-0 (Wright and Ditson p 94). To add to her woes Miss Homans seemed unable to control her usually effective back-hand strokes but at 1-4 down showed marked improvement in both speed and accuracy. Helen never looked back from that stage.

Although the general average of the play was inferior to that of years past, Miss Homans' victory was a popular one. Her name will be the first to be inscribed on the new championship cup (Spalding,s Lawn Tennis Annual)

Summary

British papers have dubbed the defending Yank May Sutton, "The Pasdena Washerwoman" because of her shocking habit of exposing her arms. The prospect of Miss Douglass retaking her title stirs more excitement than usual for the ladies event.

Douglass bears down in 1906 and takes 10 titles, dropping only 2 sets all year. One of those wins is at Wimbledon, where she romps through the field. Over 4,000 show for a Thursday final (A capacity crowd at Worple Road) where Douglass beats the American. The second set is a thriller, Dorothea coming back from 0-4 to 5-4. In the 12th game Sutton saves 4 match points with "plucky play". "May Sutton, though hitting as hard as ever, couldn't control her strokes at the crucial stages." May's balls were flying long over the baseline, often by a foot. This is only May's second loss on British soil, both at the hands of Douglass.

Note that the doubles and mixed events were still not championship status.

"Unfortunately Miss Boothby, who had reached two finals, was indisposed, and had to scratch, so Miss Eastlake Smith was awarded a walk over in the Ladies' Open Singles, a circumstance which she deeply regretted, as she greatly wanted to see whether she could beat Miss Boothby again, as she did at the East Croydon Tournament."

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, August 8, 1906:

“The entry for the Northumberland Lawn Tennis Association 25th County Open Tournament promised to make it one of the most successful and interesting tennis events of the season, but unfortunately several of the entrants were unavoidably prevented from being present. A regretful letter was received from Miss Dorothea Douglass intimating a complete breakdown, while Mrs Charlotte Sterry was suffering from a mishap which effectively compelled her absence. Several other prominent players were absent through various causes. The presence of Miss May Sutton, the American lady champion, who made her first appearance in Newcastle, made the programme of more than ordinary interest. If Miss Sutton appreciated the Northern hospitality as much as the Northerners appreciated her play, this will certainly not be her last visit to this city.”

To further excite interest May won an exhibition singles match against Sidney Smith. Sidey owed 30 and gave 15-he lost 6-2 6-1.

Sutton left England on August 12th, making this event the last on her 1906 European tour.

Venue: Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club

FI: Elizabeth Ryan (US) d Miss King

DF: Miss Pooley/Elizabeth Ryan d Miss Hobson/Miss King

MX: Elizabeth Ryan/J. D. Hunter d Miss Pooley/Major Williams

Information from Ted Tinling's book Love and Faults sheds more light on the Ryan sisters Pacific Northwest jaunt. Accordng to Elizabeth, "On out first trip we won every available prize in four tournaments: Vancouver, Victoria. Tacoma, and Seattle." (p 114 of Love and Faults). Ryan also recalls that it was in the Vancouver final that she first discovered the use of the volley due to a large rough patch on the court. "When Alice was on the good side she always seemed accurate enough to put the ball in the bad patch. After half-a dozen untakable bounces I was furious and accused her of cheating. Ryan then said to herself, "I have to stop this. I have to hit the ball before it bounces."

The preceding illustrates how Ryan started down the path to becoming the best volleyer of her era. This was also her first exposure to grass. On the west coast grass courts only existed in the north, where there was enough rain and a cool climate to support the surface.

Note that Ryan's memory is slightly off-as Wright and Ditson indicates she beat a Miss King in the Vancouver final. Either Ryan beat her sister her in an earlier round or she has the wrong venue. In light of Ryan's comments the information that "the seven grass courts never looked better" is amusing. There were some 500 to 600 spectators for the finals.

A top-class, non-handicap women’s doubles event was a novelty at this tournament. Douglass drops her first set all year in the semi vs Sterry. The match was delayed by rain for 30 minutes after two sets. Morton wins a set in the final but cannot prevail. These two sets are the only ones Dorothea drops all year long-she is undefeated in ten tournaments.

The draw of 50 is probably a record entry for any ladies singles in 1906.

Western Australian (30 October 1905)

"Miss Jones, refusing to take advantage of the continued indisposition of Miss Payten, forfeited the final."

Western Mail (3 November 1906)

"Broadly speaking, Miss Payten is all that had been said of her, and, in some respects, she is more. For instance, we were not told of her accuracy or, rather, it was not insisted upon. Whether standing behind the baseline or at the net, Miss Payten seldom strikes a ball that refuses to go where she would have it. On the other hand, from accounts that came to us it seemed that Miss Payten never served a ball that she did not follow in to the net. As a matter of fact, Miss Payten occasionally follows in, more often she prudently waits on the baseline for the return. Still, when she does follow in she is not to be stopped by hard driving for her volleying is as well polished as is her ground work. Expecially resourceful, she has a large number of strokes with which to vary her play and perplex her opponent.

A few bits of trivia:

Sydney Morning Herald (13 March 1906)

"Miss Payten (was) but a pale image of her usual self, and to those who know her play it was almost painful to see her reduced by sickness to an absolute inability to run for a ball out of her reach. Still she played a fine game. Fortunately Miss Payten has practically recovered from her sickness, and next year she may win back all her championships."

According to "Wright & Ditson for 1907" at page 55, this was the Middle States Championships.
The book shows the final result only, and adds that in CR Helen Homans won by default from Miss Neely.
Really, the Middle Atlantic States Championships have held in Washington D.C. , not in New Jersey, and for this tournament W&D shows men results only.

Perfect weather was enjoyed and with the ground in excellent trim and an entry totalling 340, it goes without saying that the meeting was a great success."

Thank you for reading our pages and the comments Hugues Daniel:)

I will double check the old Wright and Ditson to confirm which Ryan won these events.

Glad you enjoy these.

P.S.Love your avatar pic with the old boxed tennis set. I would dearly like to own one.

All added to this point. Win of Alice over Elizabeth at the firat event confirmed, so Elizabeth won 3 of the 4 events on the Pac Northwest circuit that year.

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 13, 1906:

“Miss Douglass was known to be in magnificent form, by her previous performances this year; and the writer, who won a small bet of 2 to 1 on her, has never seen Miss Douglass play better. Miss Sutton started serving, and deuce was called twice before the first game fell to Miss Douglass. Throughout the match, and especially in the first set, Miss Sutton kept a much better length than Miss Douglass, Miss Douglass sending nearly every return to Miss Sutton’s backhand, and never sending them very deep. Her game seemed to get Miss Sutton out of position by driving the ball across the court on to Miss Sutton’s backhand, and then to finish the rest by one of her famous forehand cross-court drives. And so well did she play that the first three games quickly fell to her.

“Miss Sutton now seemed to wake up, and by means of her wonderful forehand drives, won the next four games straight off the reel, the fourth being a love game. Four-three was called in Miss Sutton’s favour, and English hopes began to sink somewhat – recalling Miss Sutton’s performances in this country last year. However, Miss Douglass won the next game with the loss of one point. Four games all!

“The ninth also fell to Miss Douglass on Miss Sutton’s service, but she lost her own service and five games all was called. Tremendous excitement prevailed. Which would win the first set? But Miss Douglass rose equal to the occasion, and by means of superb play and some seemingly impossible backhand saves, won the next two games with the loss of only two points. First set to Miss Douglass at 7 games to 5; and Miss Sutton lost her second set in open singles.

“Miss Sutton started the service in the second set, and got to 30-love, only to lose the game after deuce had been called. The next, a deuce game, fell to Miss Sutton. One game all! But Miss Douglass now played as she never played before, and by means of her magnificent forehand cross-court drives, and some wonderful backhand saves, quickly brought the score up to 5 games to 2 in her favour. In the eighth and last game Miss Sutton completely altered her tactics. Both ladies had hitherto played entirely from the baseline, but now Miss Sutton, realising that something desperate must be attempted, came up to the net and volleyed, but although this was partially successful, it was too late to alter her style of play.

“Miss Douglass was serving and got to 30-love. Miss Sutton, however, won the next two points by some good volleying, but lost the next, and 40-30 was called in Miss Douglass’s favour. The latter got four times within a point of the match before winning the set and match, Miss Sutton bringing the score back to deuce by well-placed kills. Then ‘vantage to Miss Douglass was again called, and after a good rally the game fell to Miss Douglass, and the set at 6-2. And Miss Sutton retired defeated for the first time in open singles for over two years.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, August 8, 1906:

“The entry for the Northumberland Lawn Tennis Association 25th County Open Tournament promised to make it one of the most successful and interesting tennis events of the season, but unfortunately several of the entrants were unavoidably prevented from being present. A regretful letter was received from Miss Dorothea Douglass intimating a complete breakdown, while Mrs Charlotte Sterry was suffering from a mishap which effectively compelled her absence. Several other prominent players were absent through various causes. The presence of Miss May Sutton, the American lady champion, who made her first appearance in Newcastle, made the programme of more than ordinary interest. If Miss Sutton appreciated the Northern hospitality as much as the Northerners appreciated her play, this will certainly not be her last visit to this city.”

Wimbledon Challenge Round: Dorothea Douglass d. May Sutton (USA) (holder) 7-5, 6-2

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 13, 1906:

“Miss Douglass was known to be in magnificent form, by her previous performances this year; and the writer, who won a small bet of 2 to 1 on her, has never seen Miss Douglass play better. Miss Sutton started serving, and deuce was called twice before the first game fell to Miss Douglass. Throughout the match, and especially in the first set, Miss Sutton kept a much better length than Miss Douglass, Miss Douglass sending nearly every return to Miss Sutton’s backhand, and never sending them very deep. Her game seemed to get Miss Sutton out of position by driving the ball across the court on to Miss Sutton’s backhand, and then to finish the rest by one of her famous forehand cross-court drives. And so well did she play that the first three games quickly fell to her.

“Miss Sutton now seemed to wake up, and by means of her wonderful forehand drives, won the next four games straight off the reel, the fourth being a love game. Four-three was called in Miss Sutton’s favour, and English hopes began to sink somewhat – recalling Miss Sutton’s performances in this country last year. However, Miss Douglass won the next game with the loss of one point. Four games all!

“The ninth also fell to Miss Douglass on Miss Sutton’s service, but she lost her own service and five games all was called. Tremendous excitement prevailed. Which would win the first set? But Miss Douglass rose equal to the occasion, and by means of superb play and some seemingly impossible backhand saves, won the next two games with the loss of only two points. First set to Miss Douglass at 7 games to 5; and Miss Sutton lost her second set in open singles.

“Miss Sutton started the service in the second set, and got to 30-love, only to lose the game after deuce had been called. The next, a deuce game, fell to Miss Sutton. One game all! But Miss Douglass now played as she never played before, and by means of her magnificent forehand cross-court drives, and some wonderful backhand saves, quickly brought the score up to 5 games to 2 in her favour. In the eighth and last game Miss Sutton completely altered her tactics. Both ladies had hitherto played entirely from the baseline, but now Miss Sutton, realising that something desperate must be attempted, came up to the net and volleyed, but although this was partially successful, it was too late to alter her style of play.

“Miss Douglass was serving and got to 30-love. Miss Sutton, however, won the next two points by some good volleying, but lost the next, and 40-30 was called in Miss Douglass’s favour. The latter got four times within a point of the match before winning the set and match, Miss Sutton bringing the score back to deuce by well-placed kills. Then ‘vantage to Miss Douglass was again called, and after a good rally the game fell to Miss Douglass, and the set at 6-2. And Miss Sutton retired defeated for the first time in open singles for over two years.”

In the first set Miss Homans seemed unable to control her usually effective back-hand strokes but at 1-4 down showed marked improvement in both speed and accuracy. Although the general average of the play was inferior to that of years past, Miss Homans' victory was a popular one. Her name will be the first to be inscribed on the new championship cup (Spalding,s Lawn Tennis Annual)

According to Lawn Tennis and Badminton this tournament started on March 5.

However several earlier issues have an advert for the tournament which mention that the Riviera Championships (Fifth International Tournament) was scheduled to start on March 5th, 1906.

The score of the ladies final should be rechecked as the article mentions "Miss Warden showed great pluck in her match with Miss Ransome, as the latter actually stood at 5/2 and 40/30 in the final set.".

If Mme Popp has been identified as Countess Clara von der Schulenburg in the South of France Championships she should also be mentioned as such in the Championships of Cannes. For both tournaments LTAB mention a Mme. "Popp".

Thanks Wolbo! 1906 is next on my list of years to "clean up"-so this is very timely.

Crystal Palace Open Lawn Tennis Tournament, London, England (Grass)
July 16, 1906 – July 21, 1906 (third annual tournament, played during the afternoon of six days)
Mentions "Ten courts were laid out on the cricket ground,..." so that indicates a grass surface.
"Unfortunately Miss Boothby, who had reached two finals, was indisposed, and had to scratch, so Miss Eastlake Smith was awarded a walk over in the Ladies' Open Singles, a circumstance which she deeply regretted, as she greatly wanted to see whether she could beat Miss Boothby again, as she did at the East Croydon Tournament."

No. Mme Popp was Clara's sister:

ANTONIE "Toni" KUSENBERG
Germany
Born 22 January 1871
Married Eugen Franz Maria Popp (1865-), circa 1888

Clara was:

CLARA KUSENBERG
Germany
Born 24 July 1874
Died 10 February 1951 (or 2 October)
Married (1) Oskar Heinrich Hartwig, Count von der Schulenburg, 1895, divorced 1906
Married (2) Viktor Felix Eugen, Count von Voss (1868-1936), 1928

She used her first husband's surname after her divorce too.

Nice coincidence.

No. Mme Popp was Clara's sister:

ANTONIE "Toni" KUSENBERG
Germany
Born 22 January 1871
Married Eugen Franz Maria Popp (1865-), circa 1888

Clara was:

CLARA KUSENBERG

Born 24 July 1874
Died 10 February 1951 (or 2 October)
Married (1) Oskar Heinrich Hartwig, Count von der Schulenburg, 1895, divorced 1906
Married (2) Viktor Felix Eugen, Count von Voss (1868-1936), 1928

She used her first husband's surname after her divorce too.

Interesting, thx! Given that LTAB shows a Mme. "Popp" in the MX final of the South of France Championships in Nice should we list Antonie Kusenberg instead of Clara von der Schulenburg? Or is LTAB wrong?

???? Vienna

Doubles

FI: Margit Madarász/Katalin Cséry (Hun) d. Marie Amende/Sidi Maschka (Ast) 1-6 6-4 6-2

Could the location for this actually be Prague (note no women's doubles score) or Budapest?



Could not find an article on this tournament in LTAB and Vienna is also not shown in the list of tournaments that it publishes in most issues. But the Prague article mentions "In the Open Ladies' Doubles, Frau Amende and Frau Maschka beat the Hungarian pair, the sisters Madarasz and Cserry — a somewhat surprising result, as the latter pair only a fortnight before beat the former pair in the Open Ladies' Doubles at Vienna." (LTAB, July 4, 1906, p.220) So there was a Vienna tournament held around the last week of May.

Found a source after some searching in the Czech National Library Archive Kramerius. The tournament was the "Internationales Jubiläums-Turnier des Wiener Bicycle-Klub" held at the Prater ("Wiener Bicycle Club" is the current "Wiener Park Club"). The various events had separate names. A men's singles event was called "Meisterschaft des Kontinents" (Championship of the Continent). A men's and women's singles event were held for the "Meisterschaft von Niederösterreich" (Championship of Lower Austria). The women's doubles event was called "Doppelspiel-Meisterschaft von Oesterreich" (Doubles Championship of Austria) and finally the mixed doubles event was held for the "Meisterschaft von Wien" (Championship of Vienna).

Good find, Wolbo! :worship:
Thanks to your research I have also learned that Margit Madarász and Katalin Cséry were sisters, confirmed by wiki that writes that Madarász was half-sister of Katalin and Sarolta Cséry.

The list of 1906 tournament dates in LTAB shows "Ashby (Leicester Championships)" on July 9, 10, 11. That seems to be in tune with the results published in the August 1 issue and there described as "recent".
