Exhibition on July 5: May Sutton d Hazel Hotchkiss 6-2 6-0
The men's doubles carried the title of the Pacific States Doubles-the title for the women's event is unclear.
Hazel was exhausted after six days of journeying across the US by train. She fell in an upset to Ethel Sutton Bundy,ruining the projected final clash with May. An exhibition is arrnanged for finals day.Early in the morning May destroyed her older sister Ethel in the final. In the afternoon 2,000 come out for the exhibition between May and Hazel. The "unbeatable one" thumps Hazel in front of a partisan southern crowd. In the wake of May's win the Los Angeles Herald calls for the US Women's National event to be moved from Philadelphia.
Ethel usually listed in results as Mrs B. O. Bruce.
