Re: US Open Results

Thanks for the update. Just noticed I made a typing error; it should be Marjorie Gladman Van Ryn (not Van Ryan).

Re: US Open Results

Thank you Wolbo-these have been added.

I also added several first names to 1931, as well as doubles seeds.

Wills' domination has become so crushing that she is now undefeated 4 years in a row. The largest crowd of the week was 8,000 for the semis. The visiting Wightman cup team did everything but win the title. For the first time ever 3 of 4 semifinalists were foreign.

3. Anna McCune Harper
4. Marion Zinderstein Jessup

Re: US Open Results

Edited in 1893 the best I could.

Re: US Open Results

1894 has been cleaned up with full results. Newmark had some good additions and I dug up new information.

Preliminary Round:

Miss Kemble d. Amy R. Williams 4-6 14-12 8-6**
Bessie Moore d. Emily Neff 6-0 6-1
Hilda Stone d. Elizabeth Beecroft 6-0 6-2 **

First Round

Augusta Schultz d. Hattie Butler 2-6 6-2 6-2
Annabella Wistar d. Colahan 6-1 6-2
Miss Bent d. Miss Hannis 6-2 7-5
Underhill d. Bertha Townsend default*

Aline Terry d. Miss White 6-2 6-2
Hattie Beaumont d. Helen Day Harris 6-3 6-2
Bessie Moore d. Ethel Bankson 3-6 6-3 8-6
*Helen Hellwig d. Elizabeth Slevin 6-2 6-0

Quarterfinals (listed in paper as "2nd Round")

Schultz d. Wistar 6-3 6-1
Underhill d. Bent 4-6 6-4 9-7
Terry d. Beaumont 6-2 6-0
Moore d.Hellwig 7-5 1-6 6-4


Terry d. Moore 6-3 4-6 6-4
Schultz d. Underhill 6-2 3-6 6-0


Aline Terry d. Augusta Schultz 6-1 6-3
These two matches were played in the preliminary round, so it seems Hellwig and Underhill defeated Kemble and Stone in the first round (but who played vs. who?).

Also - Miss Underhill's opponent was "Mrs. Toulmin", if it's Bertha Townsend, she was already married.

Re: 1888


Roberts is very liekly to be Augusta Roberts, a player mentioned by Ellen Hansell as active at this time.
Yes, Augusta Roberts was that player who competed in the 1888 U.S. Championships.
