There is an error in the 1956 singles results - in the quarterfinal Pat Ward in fact beat Angela Mortimer and was then beaten in the semifinal by Angela Buxton.

An apt and true statement Wolbo. Perfection will be just out of reach.

Re: Wimbledon Results

Well, if even John Barrett gets it wrong what hope is there for us mortals? You're right, both his 2001 and 2010 edition of Wimbledon: The Official History of the Championships list the match incorrectly. The latest edition has the draws in a separate volume but it must have been corrected as it is also the source of the Wimbledon website pdf's.

Re: Wimbledon Results

Thank you for catching this Wolbo

You are correct. It was Wynne d Pittman 6-3 6-0.

I was naturally horrified, suspecting myself guilty of a typo or error on my part.

The mistake comes from John Barrett's Official Wimbledon History in 2010

Quote:
The 2R score of Nancye Wynne d. Eileen Whittingstall 6-3 6-0 was provided in John Barrett's 2010 book Wimbledon: The Official History of the Championships, on page 321. This source is in error, as proven by the Wimbledon website and newspaper sources. See for example: 22 Jun 1938 - LAWN TENNIS. WIMBLEDON TOURNAMENT. Miss N. Wynne... In fact Wynne d. Elsie Pittman in the 2R 6-3 6-0.
So in this case I am innocent. This proves once again to me though that revisiting these draws will continue to weed out errors and uncover first names as our knowledge (and access to original sources) widens.

Thank you again Wolbo.

Re: Wimbledon Results

The 1938 draw list Wynne d. Whittingstall 6-3 6-0 as a second round match and this is also what Wikipedia shows but the Wimbledon website shows this match as Wynne d. Elsie Pittman (JB Pittman) 6-3 6-0. An article in the Derby Daily Telegraph (subscription required) of 21 June 1938 also shows Wynne d. JB Pittman 6-3 6-0. Any clarification on this?
