Finding and correcting these errors is like a math graph to infinity. With each correction we get closer to infinity (perfection) but we'll never reach it.
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

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?

CR: Dorothea Lambert Chambers d. Ethel Larcombe (holder), default

The long-awaited showdown between Ethel Larcombe and Dorothea Lambert Chambers doesn't occur. Ethel, the defending champion, was injured in a freak accident the day before the Challenge Round. While playing the mixed doubles final, she was hit in the side of the face by her partner, the Irishman James C. Parke, who had smashed the ball from behind her. As the Challenge Round was scheduled for the next day she was forced to default. When Ethel won in 1912 many felt it was because Dorothea was absent. However, Ethel had won an encounter with Dorothea just weeks before the 1913 Wimbledon.

Dorothea Lambert Chambers isn't pushed by any of her opponents, winning 5 matches for the loss of only 17 games. This is her sixth Wimbledon singles title in eleven years.

The women's doubles final is also marred by injury. Charlotte Sterry tore a tendon in her leg and had to retire when she and her partner, Dorothea Lambert Chambers, were just five points from victory at 6-4, 4-2, 40-15. The beneficiaries were Dora Boothby and Winifred McNair.

The decision of the International Tennis Federation to grant Wimbledon the title of "World Championships on Grass" prompted the All England Club to give the women's doubles and the mixed doubles events full championship status. A women's doubles event without official status had been held at Wimbledon in the years 1900-07, while a mixed doubles event without official status had been played at Wimbledon from 1900 to 1912.

Hudleston is the married name of the Scottish player Alice Ferguson. Colston is the married name of the English player Blanche Duddell.

ACF: Ethel Larcombe d. Charlotte Sterry 6-3 6-1

In the absence of the holder, Dorothea Lambert Chambers, Ethel Larcombe finally wins a Wimbledon title. Ethel, the former Miss Thomson, earned it by defeating both Blanche Hillyard and Charlotte Sterry decisively, in the semi-finals and All-Comers' Final respectively. The two losers have 11 Wimbledon singles between them!

Unbeaten in singles in 1910 and 1911, Dorothea Lambert Chambers had had her second child in April. She had announced her intention to defend her Wimbledon crown, but changed her mind after a long mixed doubles match early on in the championship.

The five foreign entries were all unfortunately in the same part of the draw. The American Elizabeth Ryan makes her debut and will enter Wimbledon every from 1912 to 1914 and from 1919 to 1934. Her first Wimbledon is memorable as she holds a match point in her quarter-final against 48-year-old Blanche Hillyard before losing.

Hollick is the married name of the English player Ada Spencer. Beamish is the married name of the Englishwoman (Winifred) Geraldine Ramsey. Satterthwaite is the married name of the Englishwoman Phyllis Carr.
