Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event
The Swiss Championships
The (International) Swiss Championships were first held in Saint Moritz, Switzerland, in 1897. An open women's singles event was added to the schedule in 1899, when the venue was still in Saint Moritz. In later years the tournament would be held at a different venue each year, on clay, or on a clay-like surface.
A Swiss Championships tournament was held in 1915; this was the last time this tournament was held until the end of World War One.
Here are the results (where known) from 1899-1915 (because it differs almost every year, the venue is also included, where known):
