1914 results
Status: Mostly finals, but in good date order. Need to add info from Little's books on Lenglen and Chambers. Covered the NYT from Jan 1 to Mar 22.

A deadly curtain draws down on Europe. Lenglen will practice in the serenity of southern France, but most women will not hit a ball again until 1919. Rubber becomes a material for war rather than bouncing balls. American Elizabeth Ryan is in Russia when war alarms sound. She makes a dramatic escape on the last train from Russia into Germany. She had to sell all her possessions along the way as bribes except her trophy as Russian champion of 1914.

Chambers plays war exhibitions for the Red Cross.

A new star is young Suzanne Lenglen of France. She captures the World Hard Court Championships in paris but does not enter Wimbledon.

Suzanne's record for 1914 is:

Won 6 of 11 tournaments entered
26-3 match record, and 2 defaults

Won 1 of 4 events entered
5-3 Match record.

Mixed Doubles
Won 6 of 12 events entered (* One event divided-I have counted it as a won event)
26-5 match record, 1 default, and 1 unplayed match.

Unknown Dates

Danish Outdoor Championships
FI: Inger Hammer d. ??


Many contribututions come from Newmark's 1914 thread found at:

The opening day was busy, with the first 2 rounds being contested in the singles as the armoury was reserved for military purposes on March 15th.

The final was close until the end, when Wagner ran off five straight games. Mrs Beard repeatedly passed Wagner when she stormed the net in the middle set.

In the doubles Weaver was at net while the other 3 kept to what the New York Times called "the long court game." Cassel and Weaver won the last set from 3-4 down.
