Draw notes:

Mrs Golding is the recently married Germaine Régnier

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1914): "In spite of English absentees, the second tournament at Saint Cloud, officially styled the Championnats du Monde sur Terre Battue, was a magnificent success. On the Saturday nearly four thousand were present to witness the semi-finals. On Sunday, for the climax of the finals, over a thousand were turned away seatless, while one speculative owner of tickets, who had bought three seats at the rate of 9 francs each per day, sold them for 100 francs each for the last day's play alone.

"The centre court at the Stade Français is a model, almost a slavish model, of the centre court at Wimbledon. The stands, if less solidly constructed, are arranged the same way, and are as capacious; the run-back and side-run are as extensive; the scoring board is, if a little smaller, precisely similar; only the surface of the court, khaki in colour and baked sand in substance, is different. It must be confessed (says the special correspondent of 'The Field' [probably Arthur Wallis Myers]) that this yellowy brown colour, so baneful to the eyes in the strong glare of a midsummer sun, drew one's preference instinctively to the green turf of Wimbledon, so peaceful to look upon, a cushion for the feet compared with this rock-like plane. But probably the hard court at the Stade Français more nearly approaches a standardised court for the whole world than the centre court at Wimbledon. Turf for lawn tennis is not to be found in Africa or on the Continent. It is something of luxury in India, and even where turf is more general the standard of Wimbledon is rarely, if ever, reached.

"Outside the chief court at Saint Cloud, uncomfortably crowded on Sunday, the accommodation for spectators is on a generous scale - in marked contrast to the narrow alleys at Wimbledon. The French organisers have acres of beautiful parkland on which to distribute their crowds after a big match. Tea under the trees makes a delightful setting. The pavilion is 300 yards or so from the centre court, reached by sylvan glades. Its catering and dressing accommodation surpasses Wimbledon; indeed, any other tournament on this side of the Atlantic.

"To M. Albert de Joannis, commissionaire général of the hard court championships, is due high praise for the perfect organisation. Day after day he had to handle large and emotional crowds, to feed them, to provide them with good matches. All his labours were carried through with zeal and tact. Lawn tennis in France owes much to his enterprising genius. As the only Englishman associated with the tournament, Mr George M. Simond, the referee, is also to be congratulated. His task was perhaps more delicate than that of M. de Joannis, for he had to perform the unpleasant necessity of putting tired men into court for a second or even third match on the same day. Eight days was not enough for four championship events, two of which are the best of five sets..."

Final

Agnes Tuckey/Hope Crisp d. Ethel Larcombe/James C. Parke 3-6 5-3 retired

Notes: The long awaited showdown between Larcombe and Chambers doesn't occur. The defending champ was injured in a freak accident the day before the Challenge Round. While playing the mixed doubles final Ethel was hit in the side of the face by her partner, who had smashed the ball form behind her.

As the challenge round was scheduled the next day she was forced to default. When Ethel won in 1912 many felt it was because Chambers was absent. However, Ethel had won an encounter just weeks before the 1913 event at Queen's in straight sets.

Dorothea isn't pushed by her opponents, winning 5 matches at the loss of only 17 games.

The doubles final is also marred by injury, 42 year old Charlotte Sterry tore a tendon in her leg while her team was points from victory at 6-4 4-2 40-15.

The decision of the ITF to grant Wimbledon the title of "World Championships on Grass" prompted the All England Club to give the women's doubles and mixed doubles full championship status. It wasn't an event at all from 1908, and in 1900-1907 had only limited status.

Ironically all 3 ladies events were marred in some way by retirements or defaults in the first year all events were granted championship status.

News from London

It has been proposed that a Davis Cup style competition for ladies be contested. The suggested name is the "Sutton Cup"

[In fact an international ladies competition in a Davis Cup style didn't become reality until 1923. The competition was called the Wightman Cup]

She serves overhand with the Doherty cut as no English lady does. She combines volleying with driving, and her tactics are fine for so young a player. She is physically strong and should have a great future.” (From “The Field”, September 6, 1913.)

*Draw note: In sourcesof the era Colston was often listed as Miss B. G. Colston. Her full name was Blanche Gladys Colston. She may have at times used her middle name of Gladys.

A romantic scandal rocks the tennis world this week. Major Henry Saunderson Laverton sues his wife Margaret (nee Sims, or Manley-Simms) for divorce, citing tennis star Gordon Lowe as corespondent. Mr Laverton had the pair followed after finding letters that Mrs Laverton had written Lowe. They were spotted both checking into a London hotel. Mrs Laverton is also a tennis player and Mr Lowe's mixed doubles partner. The major was granted his divorce, with custody of their child. Gordon Lowe married Margaret in 1914. She later created another tempest in 1921, when she was arrested for stealing cash on the Riviera to cover her gambling debts.

Please, check again, because Kentucky State Championship and Bi-State Tournament were two different tournaments. And my result was related to Kentucky State Championship.

Maybe you'd be willing to share your source for the Kentucky State Championship, because Wright & Ditson doesn't list that tournament.

Maybe you'd be willing to share your source for the Kentucky State Championship, because Wright & Ditson doesn't list that tournament.

"Spalding's Annual for 1916" , at page 136, about Kentucky State Championships 1915, writes: "Miss Madelle Lyons, who had won the women's singles ever since the event was inaugurated in 1912, was again successful, Miss Mary Shreve Lyons defaulting to her sister in the final round."
So, Madelle Lyons won the Kentucky State Championships in 1912, 1913, 1914, 1915. And in 1916 too. She was finalist in 1921, and I don't know about the other years.
The Bi-State Tournament that you have added was another tournament.

Well, that's a very roundabout way to source anything. Aside from that, your source doesn't actually say that the tournament was held in 1913.

Well, that's a very roundabout way to source anything. Aside from that, your source doesn't actually say that the tournament was held in 1913.

Yes, you have right: it's possible that in 1913 Kentucky State Championships was not held, but we are started from the fact that Kentucky State Championships and Bi-State Tournament were two different tournaments, that is a truth, confirmed, for example, in 1915, when there was the Kentucky State Championship in August 21-31 , won by Madelle Lyons from her sister defaulting to her, and the Bi-State in September 4-13 , won by Mary Shreve Lyons from her sister defaulting to her. Both tournaments were held in Louisville.
About Kentucky State Championship 1913, it would have been strange (but possible) that a tournament, started the previous year, was interrupted after a year at once. I think that, waiting for more careful news, we can believe in a victory of Madelle Lyons in that year too.

Thanks everyone.

All added. Note though that I did change the surface at Bermuda from "Hard" to "Clay".

My reasoning is twofold:

1. British sources used "hard" for surfaces that today would be called clay. As a British colony it would be natural to use this in the case of Bermuda.

2. I have some copies of American Lawn Tennis where the event is described. I'm pretty sure it's clay.

I will try to double check my ALT's and confirm.

Mark, just yesterday I have pointed out you that Cecily Hartley seems married George A. Marriott in 1916, so before keep on post "Mrs C. Marriott" you should solve this problem.
Were there two Mrs C. Marriott? Or Cecily Hartley, born 1894, married before 1916?
Or was there a Miss Cecily Marriott too?

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, February 6, 1913: “The newly opened Sporting Club de Paris held a most successful inaugural tournament in Christmas week. Situated in the Rue Saussure, the club is easily accessible from all parts of Paris, and contains four covered courts, billiard rooms, dining rooms and fine dressing room accommodation. [...]

“The most interesting match of the week was the meeting between the French and English lady champions in the final of the [ladies’] singles. In the previous rounds Mrs Larcombe was not seriously pressed, but Mlle Broquedis had a good match with Mme Conquet, a pertinacious player who kept a consistently good length. The final was a most interesting contrast in styles. Mlle Broquedis, who uses top spin, was hitting hard enough to prevent Mrs Larcombe to make effective use of her volleying. The latter, however, until she was a set up, 5-2, and 40-15, was keeping a good and accurate length, and showing much greater steadiness. At this point her length became rather short, with the result that Mlle Broquedis became more aggressive, and succeeding in winning a most interesting set.

“The final set was Mrs Larcombe’s, partly owing to an improved length, partly owing to slight over anxiety on the part of Mlle Broquedis. The large and impartial gallery showed hearty appreciation of a really excellent match.”

[...]

“In the ladies’ singles the holder, Blanche Colston, was beaten by Elizabeth Ryan in the second round, and the Californian lady ultimately won the whole thing, after a final with Dagmar von Krohn, which began promisingly, but ended in the complete demoralisation of the German lady champion, probably because of the cold and depressing conditions under which the match was played.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, March 13, 1913: “The principal drawback to the full enjoyment of this tournament was the condition of the Condamine courts, which are especially laid each year for the tournament and failed on this occasion to fulfil expectations. Other complaints there were, but of matters of less importance. [...] Madeline O’Neil won the ladies’ singles, beating in the final Elizabeth Ryan, who in a previous round narrowly escaped defeat at the hands of Blanche Colston, whose superior steadiness was discounted by a lack of staying power. [...] Olive Ranson and Miss M. Stuart had some difficulty in beating Elizabeth Ryan and Suzanne Lenglen (scr.) in the final of the ladies’ doubles handicap. Mlle Lenglen, who is only fifteen [thirteen], is looked upon as a most promising player.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, March 20, 1913: “It is pleasing to record that this old-established meeting, at which the Championships of the Riviera are competed for, after being in some danger of falling through, secured a capital entry, and went off most successfully. Its promoters are to be congratulated not only on having settled their differences with the powers that be, but on having made such good use of the short time at their disposal after matters had been finally arranged. The only drawback to a thoroughly enjoyable week was the coldness of the weather. [...]

“In the ladies’ singles Dagmar von Krohn, fine player that she is, was perhaps somewhat lucky to win, for the way to the final was made quite easy for her by the retirement of Elizabeth Ryan, while in the final she caught Madeline O’Neill not quite at her best; but her victory in the mixed doubles with ‘H. Williams’ [Heinrich Kleinschroth] was thoroughly deserved for they beat in turn such good pairs as C.W. Murray and Madeline O’Neill, Count Ludwig von Salm and Elizabeth Ryan, and Max Decugis and Marie Decugis, the latter pair having previously ousted the holders, Arthur Wallis Myers and Jessie Tripp.”

“Dagmar von Krohn had an easy time all through in the ladies’ singles, her hardest match being against Madeline O’Neill.

The entry was good and as large as could comfortably be dealt with on the four En-Tout-Cas courts of the Yorkshire Club, and most of the competitors went away highly pleased with the tournament and with everything that had been done for their entertainment.

--

“Delayed by two days’ rain and the overlapping of the Métropole meeting the level events at the Beau Site tournament were wound up in glorious weather on April 1 and the handicap events two days later. [...]

“Jessie Tripp was a popular winner in the ladies’ singles. She played very well, although she is perhaps not quite as quick or so accurate this year as she was last. Miss Towler, a neat player with a hard drive, gave her a very close game in the semi-final. Miss White put out Mrs Perrett in the first round, but retired to Miss Tripp in the final after being a set down and 4-1 against her. The final was played in drizzling rain.

“Count Ludwig von Salm and Elizabeth Ryan handsomely won the mixed doubles. They are a pair who go well together and have been extremely successful on the Riviera. Count Salm seems to steady down in a mixed and to try much harder and stick to it more than he does in other forms of the game. Hope Crisp and Miss M. Reid put up a fine exhibition when they beat Friedrich W. Rahe and Domini Crosfield. It was quite one of the matches of the tournament. Crisp was excellent and Miss Reid backed him up well. Heinrich Kleinschroth and Countess Clara von der Schulenburg (who seems to be playing as well as ever) also make a good pair.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, May 1, 1913: “The ladies’ singles, as had been generally anticipated, proved a triumph for Dorothea Lambert Chambers, who regained the title she resigned last year, without the loss of a set and with only 17 games scored against her in four matches. The closest battle she had was with Blanche Colston, who found her not quite at her best and ran her very close in the second set of the final.

“Mrs Colston’s play showed a remarkable advance, and she disposed decisively of both Madeline O’Neill and Beryl Tulloch in the earlier rounds. In the Challenge Round Dorothy Holman put up a plucky fight and showed some admirable strokes – her backhand is good and she made many useful cross shots and deep drives, her length generally being very sound. But while her good shots were to be applauded, Mrs Lambert Chambers was making others as good all the time, in addition to showing much more variety of stroke and knowledge of the angles of court. She played, in fact, a thorough championship game, full of sting and eloquent of resource.”

“In the final Mrs Sterry had again to work hard in the first set against Madeline O’Neill, but she secured the second quite easily, volleying with all her old accuracy and the most admirable judgement.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 5, 1913: “Dorothea Lambert Chambers practically commanded the ladies’ open singles, and with Dorothy Holman not defending, she won the event for eighth time in eleven years. Beryl Tulloch gave Mrs Lambert Chambers her best game up to the final, and with Aurea Edgington scratching, Dora Boothby easily came through the upper half of the draw

“In this event Geraldine Beamish showed some very gratifying form, as was indicated by the ease with which she beat Doris Craddock. She was less given to impetuosity than some of her opponents, and played much better against Mrs Lambert Chambers than is indicated by the score of two love sets, very many games going to ‘vantage, and Mrs Beamish keeping up her end with fine tenacity

“Beryl Tulloch won the first two games of her semi-final with Mrs Lambert Chambers, but the latter had the match in hand once she had gauged the strength of the wind. Miss Boothby’s form against Daisy Kercheval-Hole was the reverse of convincing in the first set, but in the second she mixed her game cleverly, and came very near to her best.

“In the final Mrs Lambert Chambers’ commanding position in the game was emphasized by her comfortable conquest of Miss Boothby. Throughout there was more bite in her game, and the precision of her driving had Miss Boothby on the defensive practically throughout, the latter being afforded little scope for the drop stroke she can play so well against the majority of her opponents.”

On the other hand, Mrs Lambert Chambers never seemed able to settle down to her usual game, possibly owing to the clever tactics of her opponent, who intermingled drop shots, hard drives into the far corners of the court, and cross court volleys with consummate skill.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 12, 1913: “The local tournament held for some years past on the East Gloucestershire Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club grounds, has this year blossomed out into an open one with sufficient success to justify the belief that the change will be permanent. The East Gloucestershire ground, besides being most picturesquely situated, is in every way fitted for the requirements of an open meeting with its wide expanse of well-kept and level turf, on which there is room for any number of courts up to twenty, and even more, and its ample pavilion accommodation; nor is there any reason why it should not become, in time, one of the leading tournaments of the summer season – although on this occasion the entry was not quite as good a one as was at one time hoped. But in spite of the scarcity of players of absolutely first-rate ability the standard of play was quite high enough, and the strength of the leading competitors level enough, to produce plenty of close and highly interesting tennis.

“In the ladies’ singles Edith Hannam’s supremacy was practically unchallenged, except by Mrs J.B Perrett, who gave her a very good game in the semi-final, and deserved a game or two more than she actually scored...”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 19, 1913: “Dorothea Lambert Chambers won the ladies’ singles, but she showed very little of the form which made her two years ago unquestionably the best lady player. Indeed, it may be said that she was lucky to win, for Miss Tulloch was within an ace of defeating her, and her intended finishing drive – a certain winner – just hit the tape and fell back on the wrong of the side net.

“Again, Mildred Coles in the semi-final was more than once within an ace of winning the second set; and Mrs Lambert Chambers was led in both sets – in the first 4-1 – by Phyllis Satterthwaite, who had achieved distinction by defeating Dora Boothby in a long and rather tedious match on Friday. Geraldine Beamish again showed excellent form in this event, beating Winifred McNair, and only just going down to Miss Boothby in two advantage sets. She has improved very much, and she and Vera Spofforth should both do better yet.”

June 23-July 5, Wimbledon

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 10, 1913:

“Tuesday, July 1. Women’s singles semi-finals.

“The two semi-finals were played today. Dorothea Lambert Chambers is regaining her confidence fast. She was altogether too good for Helen Aitchison, who, except for one or two short periods when she was finding the sidelines with irreproachable accuracy, was not on her best game. In fact, Mrs Lambert Chambers hit too hard for her, and played better than she has played all this season. She only lost five games in the two sets, and certainly always looked to be winning comfortably.

“This was far from being the case with Winifred McNair in the other match, in which she was opposed by Dorothy Holman. The game was very much a repetition of Mrs McNair’s game the day before with Charlotte Sterry; after losing the first set she won the next two, on each occasion just getting home by an advantage set in the third after being led in it. Her exertions of the previous day apparently disinclined her to do much volleying, but there was not the same necessity for it as in her previous match, since Miss Holman is naturally a baseliner, whereas Mrs Sterry had, if possible, to be kept back there by aggression.

“Still, Mrs McNair chose her time to come in very well, and made a lot of winning volleys, controlling their direction well, and concealing their pace with some skill. She has also acquired, probably from her husband, the art of lulling her opponents to a false sense of security by appearing to be absolutely done to the world, whereas in truth and in fact (as they say in the law) she has any amount of reserve to call upon.

“Miss Holman played steadily all through, and at times very well indeed; it was an even match, but Miss Holman failed to drive her advantage home, losing three or four game from 40-0. On the other hand, this is really a tribute to Mrs McNair’s pluck and pertinacity, and the way in which, when led 4-2 in the final set, she forced Miss Holman to a position in which a toss [lob] was the only possible reply, and then smashed that toss to glory every time, was as nice a bit of combined tactics and skill as could be desired.”
--

“The Mixed Doubles. Thursday, July 3. The Final.

“The programme opened on the centre court with this event, in which James C. Parke and Ethel Larcombe met Hope Crisp and Agnes Tuckey, and so far as the match proceeded it was evident that the best reply to ‘parallel formation’ is ‘parallel formation’, for Crisp and his partner did better against their formidable antagonists than any pair whom the latter had met at Wimbledon.

“Crisp did not start auspiciously, for he promptly lost his service game. Parke followed, and mainly by mistakes of Mrs Tuckey’s secured the game. The third, with Mrs Tuckey serving, showed Crisp missing an easy smash, but he atoned for this mistake by a fine poach. A double fault and missed volley by Crisp gave Parke and Co. the game after deuce had been called. The fourth game also ran to deuce, mainly by good volleying on the part of Mrs Tuckey and wild play by Parke, but Mrs Larcombe was as steady as a rock, and she won the game for her side. 4-0 Parke and Mrs Larcombe lead.

“In the fifth game Crisp made no mistake with his service, the first was fast and well-placed, and gave Mrs Tuckey opportunities at the net, of which she was not slow to avail herself, and Parke playing very badly, Crisp and his partner won the next two games. 4-3 Parke and Mrs Larcombe lead. The eighth game, Mrs Larcombe, by beautifully placed services and well backed up by her partner, won to love, and Crisp’s service game being captured, the set was won at 6-3.

“The second set was mainly notable for the falling off in Parke’s game; he was wild to a degree, and nothing seemed coming off for him. What was worse was his tactics. Mrs Larcombe was playing beautifully, and he did not give her enough to do. It was mainly by her exertions that the score reached 3-all, but with Parke playing worse and worse, and Crisp and Mrs Tuckey playing better and better, the latter won the next two games. They were at 15-love in the ninth game when a deplorable accident happened.

“A fairly deep and high lob went to Parke, who smashed it hard from the left-hand court towards the opposite sideline; Mrs Larcombe was close to the net, and the ball struck her with terrific force on the face. She did not fall, but seemed stunned for an instant, and it was soon obvious that she was seriously hurt. The game stopped, and Mrs Larcombe most pluckily continued standing on court and bathing her eye (which was injured) with water, but the damage was too serious to continue the game, and the players retired.

“The umpire, after a short delay, told the crowd that the match would be continued later, but further investigation proved that the injury was much too severe too allow of Mrs Larcombe continuing the match, or in playing any other match in this championship meeting. It was indeed a sad event, and cast a gloom over all subsequent proceedings.”
--

“Women’s All-Comers’ Final, Thursday, July 3.

“Dorothea Lambert Chambers has come into her own again; by her defeat of Winifred McNair she won the final round of the ladies’ singles, and on the day’s play she thoroughly deserved her victory. That in doing so she showed her super excellent form of two years ago we hesitate to say, but her game was good enough to dispose of any opposition that was encountered.

“Mrs McNair is a proverbially bad starter, and in this match she made no exception to her usual rule; throughout the first set she did not get going at all, as even when she had plenty of time to make the shot, time and again she hit the ball into the net or yards out of the court; but she did not always have much time, as Mrs Lambert Chambers was placing the ball with great accuracy from corner to corner, and varying these strokes with short-length, oblique drives. The pace was not very great, and Mrs McNair was often able to reach the ball and, strangely enough, on many occasions she was making the return better when hard pressed than when the stroke could be made in comparative leisure. The first set, owing to Mrs McNair’s bad start, was soon over, the score reading 6-0 in favour of Mrs Lambert Chambers.

“It was in the second set that the fight began; Mrs McNair’s ground shots improved out of all knowledge, and when she came to the net, and her judgement in picking out the right ball to come in on was very sound, she made some fine winning volleys. The games went with service until three-all was called, the fourth game with Mrs McNair serving being a tense affair, with the issue long in doubt; however, she secured it in the end by combined pluck and play, and then she secured the lead for the first time in the match at 4-3 with her service to follow; if only she could annex this she was in the happy position of holding a winning lead, and desperately she strove to secure it; she reached 40-30, and was in position for a winning volley.

“Mrs Lambert Chambers returned the ball, but it came within easy reach, and Mrs McNair, to her own evident disgust, ‘foozled’ the shot, the ball hit the net and the chance was lost. Desperately anxious to win this game she went all out for the two points necessary; twice she secured the ‘vantage, but on each occasion she was pulled back by her opponent, whose only trace of unsteadiness throughout the match occurred in the previous two games, and eventually the game – and what a game! – went to the ex-champion. After that it was all comparatively plain sailing for Mrs Lambert Chambers, the sea which had previously been ‘choppy’ calmed down, and with careful pilotage she reached port a popular winner.”
--

“Women’s doubles final. Friday, July 4.

“Dorothea Lambert Chambers and Charlotte Sterry looked to be winning this match easily against Winifred McNair and Dora Boothby, for the latter had a bad day and was no match for Mrs Lambert Chambers in baseline duels; neither did she provide her volleying partner with the necessary openings for securing a winning ace.

“Throughout the match Mrs Lambert Chambers and Mrs Sterry always looked to have the match in hand, and it was the hardest of hard luck that, after winning the first set at 6-4, and leading at 4-2, 40-15, in the second the regrettable accident to Mrs Sterry (referred to in ‘Varia’) compelled them to retire.”

From the “Varia” section of “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 10, 1913: “Poor Mrs Sterry! It was the hardest of hard luck to injure herself so seriously when, in partnership with Mrs Lambert Chambers, she had secured the first set in the final of the ladies’ doubles, and had a lead of 4-2 in the second. Here’s wishing her a speedy recovery.

“We understand that the precise injury is a torn tendon in the calf of the leg, and there is small hope of her playing again this season. We are glad to add that the injury is not causing much pain, though it is, of course, uncomfortable.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, August 7, 1913: “Newcastle has been so singularly unfortunate of late years with regard to its weather, that last week was a pleasant surprise both to players and officials. Not a drop of rain fell throughout the week, and on the final day the only complaint was about the terrific heat, several players being quite overcome by it. [...]

“The ladies’ singles resulted in a veritable triumph for Mary Welsh, who in turn defeated Helen Aitchison, Winifred McNair, Miss M. Fergus and Dora Boothby. In the final against the last-named lady Mrs Welsh hardly made a mistake, and driving well into the court kept her formidable opponent on the defensive the whole time.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, August 14, 1913: “After a long period of comparative depression, the Exmouth tournament bids fair to revive the ancient glories which attached to it in the days of the Renshaws, at which period it enjoyed the entries of all the best players of those days, and was also one of the largest tournaments of the season. Last week it made an excellent start on its new career, obtaining an entry not only good in class, but far more than double in numbers that which it received last year. Indeed, the problem of getting the tournament through in five days on eight courts was not inconsiderable, but fortunately the weather was fine and the referee had the assistance of a really good committee. [...]

“Blanche Hillyard, revisiting Exmouth after many years’ absence, looked to have a good chance of winning the ladies’ singles. She was, however, beaten in a close game by Madeline O’Neill, who in turn was defeated by Phyllis Satterthwaite in the final, the latter lady being in one of her most persistent moods, and getting everything back with a regularity that was almost monotonous.”

She was certainly favoured by the draw, and had not to meet anyone very difficult till the final; yet she was playing so well within herself that whoever she met the result would probably have been the same .

“Elizabeth Ryan reached the final after easily beating Agnes Morton by a series of brilliant volleys – and then Geraldine Beamish, who had previously conquered Blanche Hillyard in a baseline duel after twice being in danger of losing the match. But Miss Ryan’s tactics against Mrs Beamish did not give the latter a chance to be accurate; she forced her away from the baseline by short returns, which Mrs Beamish either hit out or on to Miss Ryan’s racket.”

From “Lawn and Tennis Badminton”, September 11, 1913: “The Wimereux Tournament seems to double itself annually, this year to the extent of 310 matches and 130 individual players. It was a good thing for the executive that few competitors entered for all events. The most notable features were the defeat of Blanche Colston by the 14-year-old champion of Picardy, Suzanne Lenglen, the fine form of Georges Manset, who won the men’s singles again without losing a set, and the doubles play of Diffre. [...]

“The English contingent was considerable, and did well. The courts, as always, played excellently; the groundsmen thoroughly understand their management. Umpires were exceptionally ready and willing, and four prizes were allotted to them. The handicaps turned out unusually successful. The weather was good, never too hot; sometimes windy, it did not rain.

“For next year the number of courts will be increased to eight and a palisading will be erected. The president and committee worked hard and spared no expense, and fully deserve the popularity which the meeting now commands.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, September 11, 1913: “It was, perhaps, unfortunate that in the very year when an almost record entry was received for the Brighton tournament the executive should have dispensed with the assistance of a professional referee. That the honorary referees completed their allotted task is greatly to their credit, but it must have been a tremendous strain, entailing not only arduous work during the day but also, if report speaks truly, a continuation of these labours into the small hours of the morning.

“With such an unwieldy programme (there were no less than 25 events to be got through, if the two classes in the handicap count as one each), it is asking too much of anyone who has not the running of a tournament at his fingertips, to undertake the task. Because this task has been accomplished once it is to be hoped that it will not be repeated another year. There is too much risk attached to it and too much hard work to expect any voluntary assistants, however willing, to undertake.

“In addition to the men’s and ladies’ singles, the mixed doubles handicap was divided into two classes, and we understand that a pair who failed to owe 15 and give 30.2 in the men’s doubles expressed a fervent hope that there might be two classes in that event also another year.

“A big crowd is supposed to evoke enthusiasm, but this is not the case at Brighton; not only did the spectators fail to applaud the finer points of the game, but that burst of applause which heralds the execution of a short lob was also conspicuous by its absence. To be frank, the crowd seemed bored after breakfast, languid after lunch and torpid after tea.”
--

“The ladies’ singles also held a mild surprise or two. First and foremost was Dora Boothby’s easy victory over Dorothy Holman, and Miss M. Dillon’s success at the expense of Madeline O’Neill in the semi-final rounds. The final was well contested, but Miss Boothby was not playing with much confidence; a victory over Miss M. Dillon would make the challenge cup her property, and the occasion seemed to tell on her. Miss Dillon adopted the same tactics in this match as when playing Mrs O’Neill, and the drop shot figured largely in her plan of campaign; it was mainly by this device that she secured the second set and established a commanding lead in the third, but Miss Boothby, regaining confidence when all seemed lost, won a closely contested match.”

However, despite a considerably larger entry than last year the tournament was comfortably concluded on the Saturday. [...]

“Agnes Morton has surely never gained a championship so easily, the loss of four games in three matches being the sum total of her opponents’ efforts. The final against Elizabeth Ryan was most disappointing, as the latter had played so strongly in previous ties that many anticipated she would emerge victorious, but she never got going at all and only managed to win one game in the two sets.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, September 18, 1913: “Considering the popularity of Eastbourne as a health and holiday resort one would probably not err if one put down the entry at the first tournament as supplying a programme of about 300 matches – certainly not more. Figures happen to be available which show that the number of matches in 1898 – exactly the ‘half-way house’ between its start and the present year – was 512. This year 1,249 matches were on the programme, an increase of 125 over last year’s entry, while the previous year’s – 1911 – topped the thousand for the first time.

“These 1,249 matches were divided into 506 in the ‘level events’, i.e. those which it has hitherto to been regarded as a point of honour to finish, if possible, in the first week of the meeting, and 743 in the handicap events. The level events showed an increase of 95 matches over last year’s record programme. [...]

“The ladies’ singles was won by Ethel Larcombe, and this being her third successive win, she takes the Duke of Devonshire’s Cup outright. Not only did she win, but she did not lose a set in doing so. Gladys Lamplough took ten games off her, Winifred McNair seven, Dorothea Lambert Chambers (in the final) six and Dora Boothby three. Yet, except in the final, she was never playing quite at her best.

“Mrs Lambert Chambers led her 2-0 in the first set and 4-1 in the second; in each set Mrs Larcombe then secured the number of games to win straight off. She volleyed little, but she placed her drives and varied the pace of them with great subtlety. Mrs Lambert Chambers had had some difficulty in disposing of Agnes Tuckey on her way to the final, only winning 6-3, 8-6, but she beat Dorothy Holman with the loss of only four games, and Elizabeth Ryan in an astonishing way by two love sets.

“Other notable matches in this event were Helen Aitchison’s easy defeat of Edith Hannam, and a fine game between Mrs Tuckey and Beatrice Lee, who is rapidly recovering her best form. Mrs Lambert Chambers had some recompense for her defeat at Mrs Larcombe’s hands by beating that lady both in doubles and mixed. In the former Mrs Lambert Chambers was partnered by Connie Luard, and these two won a hard match with Mrs Larcombe and Madeline O’Neill in the semi-final, and then, in the final, easily disposed of Agnes Morton and Miss Ryan, who had achieved a surprising victory over Winifred McNair and Miss Boothby in the previous round. [...]

“The mixed doubles was the real cause of the complaints of overwork. No fewer than 108 pairs entered for this event, and, not being closed and drawn till Monday night, it could not be begun before Tuesday. Not only was the entry huge, but there were in it about 30 pairs any one of which would stand a good chance of winning the open mixed at an ordinary tournament, so some of the matches were bound to be long and exciting. [...]

“The last four pairs left in were George Hillyard and Elizabeth Ryan, James C. Parke and Ethel Larcombe, Charles Dixon and Edith Hannam (against whom Arthur Wallis Myers and Helen Aitchison should have won) and Walter C. Crawley and Dorothea Lambert Chambers.

“Hillyard and Miss Ryan had beaten Charles and Agnes Tuckey and Erik Larsen and Beatrice Lee, in each case after a hard three-set match; Parke and Mrs Larcombe had beaten A. Ross and Connie Luard and Stanley Doust and Gladys Lamplough fairly easily, the latter pair having previously put out Roderick and Winifred McNair. Charles Dixon and Edith Hannam had put out Alfred and Geraldine Beamish and Myers and Miss Hannam (who had been too good for Albert Prebble and Dora Boothby); and Crawley and Mrs Lambert Chambers had a hard fight against Hope Crisp and Madeline O’Neill.

“In the semi-final Parke and Mrs Larcombe beat Hillyard and Miss Ryan fairly easily, but Crawley and Mrs Lambert Chambers lost ten games in defeating Dixon and Mrs Hannam in two sets, this last match witnessing the final defeat of Dixon in all the level events.

“The final was well fought, and was anybody’s game. The balance was turned by Parke’s fatigue; he could no longer get real power into his drives. All four played well, Crawley, as usual, missing some easy shots, but making many magnificent winners. Mrs Lambert Chambers at times volleyed successfully, and her ground shots were very safe; Mrs Larcombe seemed less self-possessed than usual, but was sound and clever. Parke was good all round until tiredness got the better of him. Some of the rallies were very long and brilliant, and the match made a fine finish to a fine tournament.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, October 23, 1913: “The ladies’ matches were not nearly so interesting and became less so as the end was reached. The ‘hitting brigade,’ headed by Helen Aitchison and Beryl Tulloch, were defeated by Blanche Colston, and it was left to the noble army of ‘stonewallers’ to try conclusions.

“Aurea Edgington and Dorothy Holman met in the final and took one hour and thirty-five minutes to play the two necessary sets, both of which were won by Mrs Edgington, the scores being 6-3 and 10-8. On occasions Miss Holman can hit, not hard, but fairly hard. On Saturday last, from start to finish, she never seemed to dare go out for a ‘biff’, and such was the caution adopted that the sidelines, almost as much as those at the base, were neglected.

“Mrs Edgington seemed capable of returning anything, but this was mainly due to the fact that the hitting was so soft that if, for once in a way, she was driven out of an absolutely impregnable position she had ample time to stroll back again, so slowly did the ball return and so weakly was it placed.

“One spectator, bored beyond measure by the tennis, began taking notes of the length of the rallies, but even this entertaining pastime palled after a time, and his attention was turned to other things. Persistent return may be an excellent thing in its way, but it can be carried to excess, and it is because no good to the game can come of the winning of championships by stonewalling (which is quite clever in its way) that the less said about such matches the better.”

From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1914): "With the largest entry in its history, this tournament also experienced the worst weather. This was a great pity, as after a couple of days' almost complete inaction many players retired from the tournament altogether. [...] Dorothy Holman player very well to win the singles, beating Beatrice Lee, Winifred McNair and Mabel Parton. Stanley Doust and Elizabeth Ryan, a new alliance, secured the mixed, playing very well."
