Hi Mark,

Nice list for Bermuda.

Are you sure the surface of Bermuda was a cement-like hard court?

My reasoning is twofold:

1. British sources used "hard" for surfaces that today would be called clay. As a British colony it would be natural to use this in the case of Bermuda.

2. I have some copies of American Lawn Tennis where the event is described. I'm pretty sure it's clay.

Here is an ebay pic from 1934

Also

1950 Elizabeth Rosenquest d. Helen Rihbany 5-7, 6-3, 6-4
1951 Beverley Baker d. Barbara Scofield 9-7, 7-5

Rosenquest (later Pratt) always went by "Betty"
should be Beverly and not Beverley (I add the extra "e" this a lot myself!)

I will double check my ALT's to confirm the surface and try to pick up results for 1942-43 and 1945-46.
