This remains the only occurrence of a double default after both players had taken to the court. The tournament was doomed after this occurrence and eventually discontinued in 1974.

1945 Pauline Betz d. Margaret Osborne 6-2, 7-5

Thanks to Rollo and Newmark. I have added it with this change:

1945 Margaret Osborne d. Louise Brough 11-9 6-2

Your final was that of Pacific Coast Championships, held two weeks after.

I have removed "This remains the only occurrence of a double default after both players had taken to the court." because in 1931 in the Eastern Grass Court Championships there was a double default in the final between Elsie Goldsack Pittman and Joan Ridley, with the score 6-3 4-6
