The bettting odds on Moody winning Wimbledon dive as she suffers a shock defeat. This is her first loss on British soil since 1924. She started the event in good cheer. In her first match she actually smiled 3 times and nearly laughed out loud "as a high wind played unexpected pranks with a ball", images totally out of character for "Miss Poker Face." Helen is all smiles as the crowds here gice her generous applause.
3,000 witnessed Stammers dismantle Mrs Moody. Kay said afterwards that Helen "Wasn't anywhere near her to. Possibly that was due to the damp court and the skidding balls." Kay makes history as the only player ever to defeat Wills by the set score of 6-0.
In earlier rounds Hartigan d Andrus over 3 sets in gusty conditions on a slippery court. Andrus led 5-1 and 40/15 in first set. Hartigan trailed 0-3 in second and recovered to 4-4 before Andrus took the set. Gallery treated to rallies of the best class.Joan went out to Stammers in the 2R. The low bounce from a wet court did not suit Hartigan's forehand and aided Stammers' sliced backhand. Hartigan played without shoes and Stammers covered her shoes with socks.
