Althea Gibson breaks the color barrier for African-Americans in a national US event. It will be another year until she gains entry into Forest Hills in the summer of 1950. 2,500 on hand for the finals. The final was a dissapointment. Both girls hit hard and made some spectacular gets, but there were many errors, particularly from Chaffee, who overhit. To top it off there was little variety.
