Re: 1899 Results
Thanks David and everyone else for this great results thread.
What is the opinion on Adine Masson and the French Championships she is noted in 1897 as the first winner but not mentioned in 1898-1899 Wiki has her down as the winner in these years but notes she was the only entrant?
What is the policy on defending champions? In the Challenge Round system do they automatically qualify as the runner up/losing finalist even if they do not defend/play in the tournament or do they forfeit this? I suppose its particularly important when noting down slam results?
Are the above 2 points subjective or is there a standard/universal opinion on these matters?
I usually credit Masson and defending champions even if they dont defend and class it as a walkover since I reckon theyve earned their w/o by being the defending champion (even though they dont defend) - semantics! anyway CR not a good idea I guess which is why they eventually got rid of it.
Incidentally Northumberland Championships take place in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne - there is also a Newcastle-Under-Lyme in Staffordshire, a Newcastle in Northern Ireland and another in Australia and Leamington is Leamington Spa
