MX:Maud Watson/ William Renshaw d. Connie Butler/John Galbraith Horn 6-0 8-6 6-3

The singles final was the first and last best-of-five-sets match in the final of the women’s singles event. This tournament marked Maud Watson's first appearance in competitive play outside of England. [From Alkan Little's book on Maud Watson]" For some time followers of the game had speculated on the relative merits of Maud and Miss May Langrishe, the Irish champion, and the possibility of a clash caused much excitement in Dublin. The public were not disappointed for both emerged, from an entry of nine, to contest the final. There was little doubt who was the superior player, for Maud, volleying and driving with surprising accuracy, proved too severe for her opponent’s graceful style of play and won in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2, taking the last six games in a row. Maud had further success when paired with William Renshaw to win the mixed doubles."

The byes scattered across multiple rounds was common practice for this era.

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1885): "Alternately held in Manchester and Liverpool, it was the turn for the latter town to have the Northern Championships in its domains this season, and, as in 1882, the beautiful grounds of the Liverpool Cricket Club at Aigburth were chosen for the venue. What with the pavilion, commodious dressing rooms, and refreshment arrangements, the Aigburth grounds are certainly convenient for tennis tournaments, and with such a great extent of lawn available for play, good courts can always be arranged for, as they were on this occasion, in spite of the weather for the past month or so being greatly against getting the ground into order.

"Prizes to the value of 180 guineas were offered for competitions, besides three challenge cups of the value of 95 guineas. The committee offered a challenge cup for ladies this year for the first time of the value of 25 guineas, the conditions being that it must be won two years in succession or three years altogether."

-----------------------------------------

Draw Notes and Summary:

Recognized as the first ever grand slam for women today. At this time the Irish ladies championship(started in 1879), as the older event, held more prestiege.

A curious note: Leslie won a first round match , then got a quarterfinal bye, a curiosity never repeated.

Bingley became more famous as Blanche Hillyard.

This was only time two sisters contested a slam final until the Williams did so at the 2001 Us Open

First prize was a sliver flower basket Because of heavy starched long sleeves shirts, the ladies served underhanded. The lone exception was Maud Watson, the winner. All the ladies also wore hats.

The Times noted that both finalists represented the Berkeswell Club, yet neglected to mention they were sisters.

[From Alan Little's booklet on Maud Watson]

Although The Championships at Wimbledon started in 1877, it was not until seven years later that the Ladies’ Championship was inaugurated. The recognition of the fair sex was far from the first but followed the lead given by the Irish Championships in 1879 and other tournaments such as Bath, Edgbaston and Exmouth in 1881.

When in March 1884, the All England Lawn Tennis Club Committee announced that the forthcoming meeting would be enlarged by the introduction of a gentlemen’s doubles event, no mention was made of staging a ladies’ singles. This decision came as late as 21 June and was undoubtedly influenced by the knowledge that the neighbouring London Club at Stamford Bridge planned to institute a Ladies’ Championship. Rather than create a difficult situation the L.A.C. graciously withdrew in favour of the premier body, which they felt had a priority to hold the Championship.

An entrance fee of 10 shillings and sixpence was charged for The Championship, the draw for which took place in the Pavilion on 10 July and included the names of 13 competitors. The first prize was a silver flower-basket, value 20 guineas, and the second, a silver and glass hand mirror and silver-backed brush, value 10 guineas.

The event, run concurrently with the gentlemen’s doubles, commenced on Wednesday, 16 July, the day after the conclusion of the gentlemen’s singles. Play occupied the courts for four days and was reasonably attended in view of the poor weather on the first three days, when strong south-west winds blew and showers were frequent. However, the Saturday was fine and between four and five hundred spectators assembled at Worple Road to witness the final.

Maud Watson, at the age of 19, became the first champion. In the opening round she easily defeated Mrs A. Tyrwhitt-Drake, whose style entailed in holding her racket more than half-way up the handle, 6-0, 6-2. In her next match, Maud was given a testing time in the first set by Miss Blanche Williams, who led 4-2, but she recovered to 5-all and then took the next eight games. A mild sensation occurred in the following round when Maud lost the opening set 6-3 to a very determined Miss Blanche Bingley, before raising her game to take the next two sets, 6-3, 6-2.

In the other half of the draw, Maud’s sister, Lilian, won her through to the final. Maud’s superiority was so well known that the result was regarded as a foregone conclusion, but on this occasion, however, Lilian exhibited greater accuracy and severity in her strokes than normal and was able to capture the first set, 8-6. Maud, undeterred, fought back to win the next two by 6-3, 6-3. Victory confirmed Maud’s standing as the leading player of that time and ensured that her name would appear in the record book for posterity.

By all accounts, The Championship was a great success, a sentiment echoed by at least one competitor who wrote to a journal of the day: “We ladies would like to thank Mr Julian Marshall (Secretary) for our pretty dressing room and his selection of an attendant. Nothing was forgotten, from the beautiful flowers on the table to the smallest toilet luxuries.”

MX: Florence Mardall/John Deykin d. Effie Noon/Frank Noon 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-2

The women’s singles event in this tournament was very modest for many years. After her Wimbledon triumph, Maud played two other tournaments that year. She returned to Edgbaston after an absence of three years to win the doubles with her sister.

The Miss Chamberlian in the QF was presumably a younger sister of "L. Chamberlain".

At Exmouth, Maud won through four matches to retain her singles title, although she dropped a set to Miss Cole before overcoming Mrs F. (agnes) Watts in the final, 6-1, 7-5, 6-3. Maud won the mixed doubles with left-handed John Deykin but with Lilian suffered a rare first round defeat in the doubles.

DF: Miss Cobbold/Miss Richardson d. Miss Arbuthnot/Miss Taylor 6-5 6-1

MX: Miss Taylor/William Renshaw d. Miss Cobbold/William N Cobbold 6-4 6-4

From Wikipedia:
William Nevill Cobbold (4 February 1862 – 8 April 1922), familiarly known as Nevill or "Nuts" Cobbold, was one of the leading footballers of the Victorian era and on several occasions a member of the England national football team. As late as 1922, at the time of his death, he could be described as "the most famous association football forward of all time", and certainly – in the words of his Times obituary – "the most individually brilliant dribbler, the player who could most often put in those thrusts that no skill could parry".

Cobbold wed a Hester Marion Arbuthnot in West Hoathly, Sussex in 1890. It is very tempting to think she might be the same as the Miss Arbuthnot in question here. Hester Marion Cobbold (nee Arbuthnot) lived from 1865 – 1957.

The winning Miss Cobbold is most likely to be "Nuts" sister. There were 3. [1] Matilda Grace Cobbold (1852-1946). [2] Emily Mary Cobbold (1856-1930) later married Reverend Matyn Ragland Allnutt.
[3] Georgiana Augusta Cobbold (Born 1860) md Edward Arthur Sylvester in 1891-date of death unknown.

As the youngest and closest to her brother in age Georgiana is the most likely candidate; but we cannot be certain.

Up to now this is the largest draw ever in a ladies singles.

Note the 6-5 scores. The requirement of winning a set by two games was not yet standard.

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1885): "Alternately held in Manchester and Liverpool, it was the turn for the latter town to have the Northern Championships in its domains this season, and, as in 1882, the beautiful grounds of the Liverpool Cricket Club at Aigburth were chosen for the venue. What with the pavilion, commodious dressing rooms, and refreshment arrangements, the Aigburth grounds are certainly convenient for tennis tournaments, and with such a great extent of lawn available for play, good courts can always be arranged for, as they were on this occasion, in spite of the weather for the past month or so being greatly against getting the ground into order.

"Prizes to the value of 180 guineas were offered for competitions, besides three challenge cups of the value of 95 guineas. The committee offered a challenge cup for ladies this year for the first time of the value of 25 guineas, the conditions being that it must be won two years in succession or three years altogether."

Re: 1884 results

Hi Mark,

Looking at this I see L Chamberlain is listed twice. Could the earlier mention of a default be wrong-or maybe she was just put back in the draw?

What's your take on it?

July 22-25, Edgbaston, Birmingham, West Midlands, England (Grass)

Draw of 11
