Status: Results are in date order, but more exact dates needed for many events.


Wills tours Europe for the first time and plays Wightman Cup and Wimbledon but loses to Kitty McKane at both events. England defeated the USA 6-1 in the Wightman Cup which was played at Wimbledon. Kitty McKane wins Wimbledon over Jessup in the QF and then recieves a walkover (due to weakness from jaundice) from Lenglen in semi-finals. In the final she just defeats Wills 4-6 6-4 6-4. Wills would rebound and with the absence of Lenglen she wins the Paris Olympic Games over Vlasto and then returns to the USA to win the USA Championships, over Mallory in the final. Also Sylvia Lance wins her first, and only Australian Championships. Even though she didnt win any tournament of note (in fact she won only 4 tournaments) Lenglen was still ranked No 1. by Myers.

Lenglen's year ends in disaster after a stunning quarterfinal tussle with doubles partner Elizabeth Ryan. Ryan pushed Suzanne to the brink of defeat in 3 tight sets. Both women walk off the court to rapturous applause. The next day Lenglen withdraws from Wimbledon. Her foes say she fears losing, while others cite a case of jaundice she contracted in Spain. In either case the event casts a shadow on her dominance similar to the events of 1921.

Despite not winning a major Lenglen's record is sterling. In singles she won 4 of 6 events.compling a
23-0 match record, with 2 defaults. She also wins 9 doubles titles (7 with Ryan) and 9 mixed titles.

Elizabeth Ryan wins 24 events in singles.

Molesworth was the favorite again this year but fell in the quarters to Kath Le Mesurier 9-7 3-6 6-8. This match was different to the usual women's matches of this time as both women drove fiercely from beginning to end. Le Mesurier who had improved greatly over the last 12 months led in every set. Molesworth pegged her back from 3-5 to win the first. Le Mesurier's off-backhand caused problems for Molesworth, jamming her on the backhand side, to give her the second set and two match points at 5-2 in the 3rd. Molesworth hit her away back to 5-5 but Le Mesurier steadied to win 8-6.
A young 20 y/o Daphne Akhurst won her quarterfinal with one reporter getting quite carried away:
"Miss Akhurst an artist to her fingertips, belied her delicate Victorian appearance that suggested she had slipped out of one of Jane Austen's novels by sifting cayenne pepper shots from a never-failing supply.
Sylvia Lance recovered from a bad start to beat the Victorian Mrs. Todd 16 64 61 and Boyd beat Simpson to complete the semi lineups. Boyd carried this form to beat Akhurst by pinning the Sydney youngster against the backnetting with the depth and power of her forehand, the most feared shot in Australian women's tennis. Lance defeated Le Mesurier 6-2 6-2 by adapting her game to the soft court by slicing and chopping, in which the lack of pace told against le Mesurier who handled Molesworth's power the round before."

Lance looked to be in full control against Boyd when she led 6-3 3-0 and 40-15, but Boyd struggled back to duece and then after 6 more dueces took the game and the next 5 to win the set. This effort took its toll and Lance gained a slight advantage at the start of the 3rd and held on to 6-4.

It was a tense and interesting contest, but the same reporter who found Akhurst such a delight was not that impressed:
"As a spectacle the match fell short of realising the requirements of championship tennis of the tonic quality which, reinforced by vigour, carries the hallmark of high distinction. Both players were over-cautious and bent on making a success of the engagement in an entirely unbrilliant way. There was some evidence of the artistic quality that appeals to the doctrinaire or dilettante but too much harmless hitting of the mercerised near silk quality to provide the exciting interest associated with an inspiriting contest."

We have this great summary thanks to Louloubelle

..and From AustinRunner comes interesting instructions from the organizers of the 1924 Australasian Championships:

"The first Australasian championship meeting to be held under the new conditions in Melbourne from January 19 to January 28 will comprise seven events only - the singles, doubles, and mixed, women's singles and doubles, and junior (boys) singles and doubles; each event carrying with it for 12 months the title of championship of Australasia. The principle conditions are as follows:-
(1) Entries must be made on the prescribed form; and when entrance fees are payable they must accompany all entries. Any holder of a championship of the previous year, if wishing to compete, must enter and play through.
(2) No entry will be accepted from any player residing in Australia unless such player be a member of a club affiliated to a State Association or a member of such association.
(3) The committee reserves the right to refuse the entry of any player, or to determine if such player is not eligible to enter, or has not the necessary ability to compete, and shall not be required to give a reason.
(4) In all events the draw will be seeded by the committee in accordance with the rules.
(5) Play shall be continuous from the first service till the match be concluded, provided that after the third set - or when women take part, the second set - either player is entitled to a rest which shall not exceed 10 minutes.
(6) Entries for all events will close at 5 p.m. on Saturday evening January 5 with the secretary of the L.T.A.V., Mr. J. F. Koch, at the club house, Glenferrie road, Kooyong.

There appears to exist in the mind of many players doubt as to who is eligible to enter. Owing to its being a championship meeting pure and simple, it is certainly not intended to accept entries from anyone who may come along; otherwise the events, or the preliminary rounds in them, would become a farce. It is intended to receive entries from all A grade players of both sexes, and possibly from the best of the B grade, and from any promising juniors, the committee finally determining who are eligible. Should any entries be refused on account of the players not being considered of sufficient standard to compete, the entrance fees will be refunded."

MX: Suzanne Lenglen/Colonel Henry Nayes (Can) d. Elizabeth Ryan (US) /Charles Aeschliman (Swt) 6-4 1-6 15-13

Drama occurs in the mixed final. The 15-13 score is the longest set score ever in Lenglen's career. When a linesman calls her for a foot-fault the Divine One refuses to play on until the English linesman is replaced. Lenglen said afterwards that the custom in France is to give a warning first. More details come from Newmark's research below:

From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", February 2, 1924: "The final between Mlle Lenglen and Col. Mayes versus Miss Ryan and Aeschlimann must be one of the longest games on record - the third set running into 28 games before it was finally decided in Mlle Lenglen's and Mayes's favour. The critical point was the sixth game in the third set, when Miss Ryan and Aeschlimann led 3-2 and 40-15 on Aeschlimann's [Mayes's] service. They lost instead of winning that game, and that was the turning point. They again led 4-3, but never afterwards got the lead.

"Miss Ryan played superbly, especially in the second set. Mlle Lenglen played her best game at times, but was uncertain at others. That Miss Ryan was the best of the four I think was the opinion of most of the spectators. It was certainly mine. Aeschlimann was a bundle of nerves. Had he played within 15 of his proper form he and his partner must have won. It was an intensely exciting game and at times we saw some great tennis."

Molla "fought cooly under the swift attack of the backhand artist." Bancroft double faulted on 4 critical points. Large crowds came out for the semis and final. On a social note-the Tennis Ball Masque was revived after 3 years.

*Little indicates that Chambers and Satterwaithe were exhausted from their semi win. Mark has the losing pair as Mrs James/Satterwaithe. Is this the same "Mrs James" who was using a pseudonym. earlier on the Riviera? If so "Mrs James" equals Mrs Chambers.
