Week of June 3-9

June 3-8 West of England Championships, Bristol, England, UK (Grass)

FI: Gethyn Harry d. M Riddell 6-4 4-6 6-3

The event was apparently lackluster compared to most years.

June 3-8, Saint George's Hill, Weybridge, Surrey, England

1R: Helen Wills Moody (US) bye

2R: Moody d Jill Notley 6-2 6-0

3R: Moody d Miss PN Morrison 6-1 6-0

QF: Moody d. Mary Hardwick 4-6 7-5 6-3

SF: Moody d. Billie Yorke 6-1 6-4
SF: Elsie Goldsack Pittman d. Eileen Whittingstall 6-3 6-2

FI: Helen Wills Moody (US) d. Elsie Pittman 6-0 6-4

DF: Elsie Pittman/Billie Yorke and Joan Ridley/Dorothy Shepherd-Barron divided the prizes.

MX: Billie Yorke/Jack Lysacht d. M Hobson/Henry Billington 6-4 7-5

This marks the return of Mrs Moody to England after more than 2 years. In her first match 300 or so people crowd around the court, many of them sitting in lawn chairs. St. George's Hill has no center court. The courts are laid out in a line beneath a terraced clubhouse on a hill above.

In the quarters Mary Hardwick served for the match at 5-4 in the second set, but at 30-all she overdrove from the baseline and then doublefaulted to, according to the New york Times, "lose a golden opportunity." The match was played in a drizzling rain.

An enthuisiastic crowd often applauded Wills in the semis, Yorke's "chop" shots bringing out the full arsenal of the American.

Helen easily defeated defending champ Elsie Goldsack Pittman in the final. Moody often did not run after shots far out of reach, a habit she displays in many matches. Afterwards she said, "My game seems to be coming back to me. My back? I think we can forget about that."

Her Wimbledon betting odds jump from 4-1 to 2-1. Round's odds are 11-8, while Jacobs is 2-1.

It is reported by the London Daily Mirror that Betty Nuthall will be unable to compete at Wimnledon this year. It is the first time since the age of 14 that she will miss the premier event in the world. While Betty suffers no pain, a displaced vertebrae in her neck prevents her from fripping many items solidly, such as a tennis racquet.

June 3-8, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, England (Grass)

FI: Kay Stammers d. Freda James 6-1 6-8 6-2

DF: Freda James/Kay Stammers d. Ermyntrude Harvey/Joan Ingram 6-2 6-3

MX: Kay Stammers/Frank Wilde d. Ermyntrude Harvey/John Olliff 4-6 6-3 6-2

From "Ayres Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1936): "Revived after an interval of four years, the Harpenden tournament secured an excellent entry, largely through the reputation of its courts."

June 3-8, Northern Tournament, Liverpool, England (Grass)

FI: Mary Whitmarsh d. Barbara Drew 9-11 6-4 6-2

DF: Dora Beazley/Barbara Drew d. Betty Batt/Mary Whitmarsh 6-2 6-3

MX: Mary Whitmarsh/Wilmer Hines (US) d. Mrs J Brutton/Henry Culley (US) 6-2 6-1

Mrs Brutton's maiden name was J McAlpine.
----------------------------------------------

June 4-10, Belgian Championships, Brussels, Belgium (Clay)

FI: Hilde Sperling (Den) d. Simone Mathieu (Frn) 7-5, 6-3

DF: Simone Mathieu (Frn)/Madzy Rollin-Couquerque (Neth) d. Susan Noel (GB)/Hilde Sperling (Den) 8-6 6-2

MX: Josane de Meulmeester/Andre Lacroix d. Hilde Sperling (Den)/Fred Perry (GB) 6-4 6-4

Meulmeester better known under her maiden name of Josane Sigart. Madzy (Magdalene) Rollin-Couquerque is usually listed in draws simply as Rollin-Couquerque.
