This was the first German Chmps since the war. It would take German tennis years to recover, as many countries banned Germans from entering their tournaments until later in the decade. It is also likely that few non-Germans entered the 1920 championships.

MX: Kathleen Lidderdale/P Freeman d. J. Marriott/B.B. Venn 6-2 6-0

From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1921): "The oldest tournament outside Wimbledon again had a fair entry. [...] Mrs Lamplough and Mrs Sterry were both playing in the ladies' singles; they met in the second round, and Mrs Lamplough just won at 9-7 in the third set, after losing a love set to start with. After this she had no trouble. Heredity showed itself in Gwyneth Sterry, who won the girls' singles."

The aforementioned Mrs Sterry is none other than Charlotte Sterry, who first played in the 1890s!
