Mixed Doubles
Final: Hart/Frank Sedgman d Fitch/John Bromwich 6-1 5-7 12-10

Notes: Mary Bevis is now Mrs. Hawton, Sadie Berryman now Newcombe.
Mrs Robert Baker from Tasmania.

Doris Hart's first visit to the Australian titles was a successful one. Scheduled to tour with Louise Brough who cancelled at the last minute, she defeated Bolton 6-3 6-4. She won the Victorian, New South Wales and South Australian titles beforehand and everyone thought she would win the Australian titles in a cakewalk. In the quarterfinals she lapsed unaccountably into error against Dulcie Whittaker, and for a time even seemed to be drifting to defeat. She eventually pulled her game together to win 6-3 3-6 6-2.

Mrs. Baker becomes first Tasmanian to reach semis, as Toomey had troubles coping with her left-handed shots. It is the only major upset of the women's event. Baker was beaten by Hart in the semis 6-3 6-1.

Bolton hits 25 clean winners vs Hawton. Coming into the 1949 event, Bolton hadn't lost a set in singles in this tourney since 1940.

Bolton defeated Long in the other semi.In century heat Bolton began confidently in the final, going to a 2-0 lead. Then, as was her wont, Bolton lost control of her forehand and Hart won 6 of the next 7 games. Hart broke Bolton's serve to lead 4-2 in the 2nd, then Bolton made a charge to square back at 4-4. Hart applied the garotte and captured the title 6-3 6-4.
