 Oct 13th, 2015 07:22 PM Rollo Re: Wimbledon Results Quote: 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. Oct 8th, 2015 04:22 PM Wolbo 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. 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. Oct 8th, 2015 04:13 AM Rollo 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. Oct 7th, 2015 02:31 AM 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? Sep 8th, 2014 02:46 AM Rollo Re: Wimbledon Results Edited 1904. Need to edit in 2014. Need to add in or consult Mark's notes. Aug 9th, 2014 03:39 AM Rollo Re: Wimbledon Results Updated 1899.

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. ----- Mar 19th, 2014 09:29 PM newmark401 Re: Wimbledon Results 1912 June 24-July 8 Draw of 34 J. Coles d.

Holman 6-3 4-6 7-5 -- 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.

"She never played better and ,as usual, her marvelous headwork, rather than the actual force of her stroke, gave her victory." [source?] Dora Boothby never gave up, four times extending games to deuce. Both the score and the time remain Wimbledon records for a final match in the women's singles event at Wimbledon. -- Lady Domini Crosfield (née Elliadi) and Dorothy Elliadi are sisters of Greek origin, although Domini was definitely born in England. -- Evelyn Dillon and M. Dillon are English sisters; the "M." stands for either Melita or Minerva ("Minnie"). -- Lent is the married name of the German tennis player Anita Heimann. -- [Marie Hazel] ----- Mar 19th, 2014 09:28 PM newmark401 Re: Wimbledon Results 1910 June 22-July 2 Draw of 33, including the holder 1R: M.

Lamplough 1-6 6-0 6-3 -- ACF: Lambert Chambers d. Johnson 6-4 6-2 -- CR: Dorothea Lambert Chambers d. Dora Boothby (holder) 6-2 6-2 -- Dorothea Lambert Chambers returns to tennis in May after an 18-month absence. The press wondered if her time was past. Could she play as well as before? Her reply was to whip through the Wimbledon draw with the loss of only 16 games in 6 matches. In the semi-finals she had difficulties early on with Edith Johnson, a surprise winner over Gladys Lamplough, but coasted after adjusting to the stiff wind. In the final Dorothea won easily, though Dora Booothby did score several aces off her serve. Dorothea Lambert Chambers went undefeated in singles matches all year, winning 7 tournaments out of 8. The only event she didn't win after entering was the East Surrey Championships in Croydon, London, where she defaulted the final because of a cold. -- Nesham is the married name of Frieda Meyer; Schmitz is the married name of her sister Nora, who had moved to the United States and married an American. Their sister Cornelia – Connie – with whom they had competed in the same event at Wimbledon in 1905, had died suddenly in 1907 at the age of 30. -- On her Wimbledon debut Sophie Castenschiöld becomes the first player from Denmark to reach the quarter-final stage of a major tournament. ----- Mar 19th, 2014 09:28 PM newmark401 Re: Wimbledon Results 1909 June 21-July 5 Draw of 37 1R: Mabel Parton d.

Aurea Edgington upsets 6-time Wimbledon singles champion Blanche Hillyard in round one. At ther first Wimbledon, Norwegian Molla Bjurstedt is one of only two overseas entries. She will return in 1920 as the highly-regarded Molla Mallory, having emigrated to the United States during World War One, where she marries an American, thus obtaining American citizenship. -- McNair is the married name of the English player Winifred Slocock who married fellow player Roderick McNair.

Agnes Morton -- Charlotte Sterry wins her fifth Wimbledon singles title at the age of 37 years and 9 months. The key to her win is a quarter-final upset over Dorothea Lambert Chambers. Charlotte still holds the record as the oldest winner of the women's singles title at Wimbledon. May Sutton, the holder, did not defend her title. She wouldn't return to Wimbledon until 1929. In a letter of 1908 to "American Lawn Tennis" she wrote that if the English "wanted their cup back they could come here (America)." No Englishwoman took up the challenge. -- Four of the top Englishwomen have married relatively recently.

Dorothea Lambert Chambers 6-1 6-4 -- May Sutton had little trouble getting to the Challenge round, though Toupie Lowther led, 4-2, 40-0, in the second set against her in round two. In the All-Comers' Final Constance Wilson made it a match. "Time and again she manoeuvred for the kill, only to volley into the net." [source?] It was closer than the 6-4 6-2 score suggests, as 11 of the 18 games went to deuce, the Englishwoman often having advantage point. In the Challenge round Dorothea Lambert Chambers appeared pale and anxious as her opponent "brimmed with confidence". Dorothea, who had married earlier in the year, hammered away at May's weaker backhand, but this stroke had improved since last year. May's shots cleared the net by only an inch or so, with tremendous pace. At 1-3 in set 2 Dorothea resorted to matching pace for pace and drew up to 4-all. She saved 3 match points before losing, 6-1 6-4. In 1907 Dorothea Lambert Chambers was still wearing sleeves that covered her wrists, a tie and belt added color to an all-white costume. May's sleeves were rolled above her elbow as usual. Both women looked severe in hair buns, with grim looks that proclaimed them ready to kill. -- A record four foreign entries.
