April

ends April 20 San Francisco Tournament, San Francisco, CA, US (Hard)
Venue: Golden Gate Park Courts

FI: Golda Meyer d Annabel Yodden 6-3 6-3

Source: San Francisco Call

The final was played on a Wednesday. Meyer, who resided in San Francisco left for the Ojai event the next day.
--------------------------------------------------
April 21-24 Ojai Valley Open, Nordhoff, California, USA (Hard)

FI: Hazel Hotchkiss d. May Sutton 2-6 6-4 6-0

This was the first time Hazel Hotchkiss had beaten May Sutton, who had been virtually invincible in singles in California for a number of years. This was May Sutton's first ever loss in singles on American soil (and to a fellow American woman), and May's first loss in singles overall since Charlotte Sterry beat her 7-5, 6-0 in the final of the Northern Tournament in Manchester, England, in early June 1907. Including May's two losses to Dorothea Douglass in England in 1906, this might be only May's fourth loss ever in singles up to this point (during the period circa 1901-April 1910).

According to Hotchkiss after the match May Sutton refused to shake her conqueror’s hand until Hazel Hotchkiss went around the net post and made it difficult for the runner-up to ignore the gesture. On the other hand the San Francisco Call (hard y likely to favor May as Hazel was from northern California) wrote that, "May Sutton, who has never been defeatred by a women in this country, took her defeat good naturdly and with philosophy, saying she had at last met her match."

Note on dates: the dating for this event is confirmed by the LA Herald. The women's final took place on April 23.
