With the exception of the ladies doubles heavy rain forces the cancellation of this event in the latter stages. There is concern for Lizana as she falls twice in her QF vs Hartigan and then collapses in the locker room.
*The NYT could have names mixed up in this score. Could this be Lili Alvarez?
*Most likely this player= Phyllis Xydis (Greece)

Ethel Burkhardt Arnold has been on such a tear this spring that she was tentatively selected to represent the US in the Wightman Cup come August. She announces she will not play, citing how her game is unsuited to grass, the heat of an Eastern summer, and the fact she does not want to leave her job as a stenographer.
"Exercising a woman's right to change her mind" (the New York Times), Arnold now declares she will come East for the chance to play in Wightman Cup and Forest Hills.
