Re: Australian Open

Rollo - since you're only going up to 1926 with the AO for your November project, here are a few details and notes for later Aussie titles. I'll save the other ones for those threads.

1927
Nell WEBB VIC
Spencer F MILLEAR VIC
Rupert L SHEPHERD SA
Harold N WILSON QLD
Thomas E ROBINSON VIC

Stanley Gordon LUM, son of Stephen LUM - a Melbourne merchant - was one of the leading junior players in Victoria and represented that state in Linton Cup competitions. He twice won the South Australian junior singles and doubles championships. Lum was born in Melbourne in 1906, studied at Scotch College and was coached in tennis by Gerald Patterson. He had never left Australia until he was invited to represent China in the Far Eastern Games of 1927. He went on to captain China in the Davis Cup and play at Wimbledon.

1929
J Colin GREGORY GBR (mixed with Mall MOLESWORTH)
Ian G COLLINS GBR (mixed with Sylvia Harper)
William Lyall (Lyall) REYNOLDS WA
Sydney 'Syd' HOCKING (married Gordon BENDER in 1930) SA
Ivy BOWEN
Margaret TAYLOR SA
Peter HOOPER SA
Mrs Eric DAY (nee Nancy WEBB) SA
Bertha KAY SA
FR 'Ray' HONE (mixed with Edna LAWRENCE)
RB 'Ron' HONE (mixed with Dot WESTON)

There were a number of tennis playing Hones from South Australia:

Dr and Mrs Frank S HONE (Frank was a champion in pioneer days) appear to have had six children:

- Dr F Raymond 'Ray' HONE
- Dr Garton M 'Gar' HONE
- Mr Ronald B 'Ron' HONE
- Miss Joyce HONE
- Miss Ruth HONE
- Mr Brian William HONE (born 1908)

Strangely, for this family, Ron Hone was NOT a Doctor, but he married one!

Brian was a very good tennis player and a talented Australian Rules footballer, but was better known as a first-class cricketer. He also excelled academically and was selected as a 1930 Rhodes Scholar.

In 1929, even though Brian and sister Ruth did not enter, Ray, Gar, Ron and Joyce all played in the Australian Championships - possibly a record for siblings in the same Grand Slam tournament.

1932
Robert RP BARBOUR
Allan Walton KNIGHT (1910-1998) - won Australian Real/Royal Tennis Championship for 11 successive years to 1951

Daphne Akhurst's default in singles altered the doubles draws. Seeds were kept the same-with O'Hara Wood taking her place in the doubles and Youtha Anthony replacing Akhurst in the mixed.


Melbourne Argus
There was a B Parsons playing in Melbourne and country Victoria from 1924 to 1928. The local newspapers of the time also have B Parsons listed.

thank you kindly Andrew Tas

I have put the name back in 1927 as B Parsons.

Pauline Spencer-Parsons seems to date from a later period (circa 1933-36) and was primarily a Tasmanian player.

Re: Australian Open

Thanks to Jimbo for finding an error. For 1971 "Emmerson" should be Joy Emerson.

I have corrected the error.

Thanks Jimbo

Re: Australian Open

Corrected and updated the 1946 draw. I found the identity of Mrs Ray J Cock. Her maiden name was Doreen Fleet.

Re: Australian Open

Correction made to the 1971 draw. Thanks to Andrew Tas for solving the identity of Mrs Emmerson.

Mrs Emmerson=Jill Emmerson, nee Blackman. [Per Andrew Tas] World of Tennis has Emmerson as the spelling. The Sydney Morning Herald also confirms this on March 11 1971.
Jill Blackman played after she got married into the mid 1970's mainly in and around Sydney.
