Re: 1890 results

Update:

June 30-July 4, The Championships, Wimbledon

ACF: Lena Rice d May Jacks 6-4, 6-1

From "Pastime", July 9, 1890: "The first round of the ladies' singles was played on Wednesday afternoon [July 2nd] at 3.30. Miss Lena Rice and Miss Mary Steedman played on the centre court. The former was hardly in such good form as in Dublin, her hitting being less powerful, but she placed very well and kept a good length. Miss Steedman, although out of practice, played well, frequently volleying with success.

"The first set reached games-all, and for a time Miss Steedman looked like winning it; but Miss Rice played very steadily, and, gaining the next two games, won the set at 7-5. In the second the Irish lady had matter pretty much her own way, although Miss Steedman played pluckily until the last stroke was decided.

"While this match was taking place, Mss May Jacks and Mrs Edith Cole were playing in an adjoining court, and proved to be very equally matched. Four-all was called in the first set, which Miss Jacks won at 6-4. In the second Mrs Cole got to 5-4 and 40-30, wanting but a stroke to make it set-all. This she could not obtain, and Miss Jacks won at 7-5.

"Mrs Cole was very weak in her forehand strokes, but her backhand was remarkably strong. Miss Jack showed the greater activity, and won by her superior steadiness.
--

"The All-Comers' Final was played on Friday [July 4th], and as it was known that Mrs Blanche Hillyard would not defend her title the match invested with all the importance of the championship round.

"Miss Jacks started very well, and the game was called at 4-2 in her favour. Miss Rice appeared to lack confidence, her returns being short. After the sixth game she steadily improved, and won ten out of the next eleven games. The last four games of the match were all won to love, one by Miss Jacks and three by Miss Rice.

"By her victory, Miss Rice becomes lady champion, and has the distinction of being the first lady to carry the title to Ireland. The winner won 58 strokes and lost 42."

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar2 (1891): "That the Northumberland County Tournament is making rapid strides to the very front rank of meetings cannot be denied, and a mere glance through the two open singles will at once show how it is looked upon by the players themselves. Last year, the committee had contented themselves with a four-day tournament, but the entries for the different events grew so numerous that after a deal of consideration it was decided that a whole week should be taken, and that the first two days should be devoted to the district events.

"Taking these competitions first in order, it was found that, when the time came for closing, forty-seven names had been sent in for the gentleman's singles handicap (divided into two classes), twenty pairs for the gentlemen's doubles, twelve pairs for the ladies doubles, and seven for the new competition - a ladies' singles for those under twenty-one. For this the Constabulary Athletic Club had given a challenge cup.

"Turning to the open events, which all received numerous entries [...] the ladies' singles closed with eighteen names. The ladies' singles handicap closed with an entry of twenty-four, the ladies doubles handicap with fifteen pairs and the ladies and gentlemen's handicap with the large number of thirty-one pairs."
