Re: 1926 results

As the 1925 final was Esmé Sandison d. Mrs Hasler 4-6 6-1 7-5 , the first above result what is?
Good point Jimbo.

Thanks Wolbo-I will fix it.

and also add


1R: Helen Wills (US)/Charles Kingsley (GB) d. Dorothy Thompson/Roger Duplaix 6-1 6-0

Per the NYT Suzanne Lenglen/Phyllis Satterwaite advanced two rounds into the QF due to defaults. Yet note results based on Little's research.
