Draw notes:

Defender Blanche Hilyard "sits" until Challenge Round final. Ladies singles began on June 26.

The Wimbledon site uses Hughes D'Eath (and not Hughes D'Aeth). Geneology records are consistent in using D'Aeth.
The "Mme Popp" on the Wimbledon site is in fact Toni Popp of Germany.

Countess Clara von der Schulenburg played as 'Adams'. Thanks to Elegos, LKK, and Newmark for helping to solve the identity of 'Adams'


From "Lawn Tennis and Croquet", July 3, 1901:

"'Miss Adams', a visitor from the Continent, is a steady baseline player with some volleying power, good backhand and forehand drives and considerable mastery of the ball. Unfortunately she had the most uninteresting draw [at Wimbledon] - a walkover and two very easy ties before she met Mrs Sterry."

From the same edition of "Lawn Tennis and Croquet":

"'Miss Adams' has never before played on grass courts, and was not quite at home with their slowness compared with the very fast courts she is acquainted to. She hails from the Continent, where she is by far the best lady player."

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

Draw Notes

The ladies doubles and mixed events were still non-championship events in 1902.

There are Bells in the draw:

1. CB Bell in singles
2. A Bell in doubles
3. D Bell in mixed.

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

Summary

Hilda Lane stuns Blanche Hillyard, opening up the draw.

Muriel Robb took advantage. After beating Lane in the quarters she wins over Douglass in the semis.There were 3 doubtful line calls that went against Douglass during her semi. Each call was at her advantage in the fourth game, which would have resulted in 3-1 lead in the third. Robb's powerful forehand pulls her through.

With this win Muriel Robb, from Newcastle in Northumberland, became the only player, male or female, to have won the four national championships of the British Isles (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales). No other player has ever repeated the feat.

Sadly Robb never returns to Wimbledon, dying in 1907, aged only 28.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Douglass took advantage of "a lean entry" to win her first Wimbledon. Absentees included the holder Robb, and multiple winners Hillyard and Sterry(pregnant).

Ethel used "her teasing, screw underhand service and outstanding backhand returns" to blunt Dorothea's power at first.

From 4-4 in the second Douglass was in control, despite not being up to her usual standard. In pictures from 1903 Dorothea's long skirts swish just below her ankles

Challenge Round

Dorothea Douglass (holder) d. Charlotte Sterry 6-0 6-3

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

Summary

Two French challengers who are unused to grass fall early. Douglass wins the Challenge Round easily, her volleying and smashing showing noticeable improvement. "When Charlotte Sterry got to the net she was either passed like a flash of lightening or the ball bounded out of court by the sheer force of the impact."

Douglass finally reversed her losing streak vs. Sterry, winning all 6 encounters in 1904. In fact, Douglass was unbeaten in 9 tournaments for the year.

Neither the doubles nor the mixed are championship level events.

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

Draw Notes

Could G. D. Driver=the Mrs Dudley Driver from an earlier draw in this year?

L Flemich=Ellen or Eliza-both had middle initials that started with "L".

The Flemmich sisters were of Dutch origin. One entered Wimbledon in 1904. They both played at Wimbledon in 1905. They are virtually impossible to distinguish from each other because they were listed in draws variously as "E. Flemmich", "L. Flemmich", "E.L. Flemmich", etc.

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

Summary

An American shocks the All England Club by smashing through all to become the first foreign female to reign as Wimbledon champon. True, she is English born, but this brash young girl called May Sutton is an entirely new sort of female lawn tennis prodigy.

Born in Plymouth in 1886, her family had emigrated to California in 1890. It was in the Western US that she learnt her whipped topspin shots. She boldly sailed for England in May of 1905, alone except for a letter of introduction from Marion Jones, the American who had entered wimbledon in 1900. May stayed with the Hillyard family to get used to English conditions. The Hillyards thought the heftly May would be too slow around the court, but she proved them wrong by winning her first event at Manchester.

At Wimbledon "spectators were shocked to see her ignore protocol and play with the cuffs of her blouse rolled back, revealing bare wrists." May still wore the long skirt with a belt, but her blouse was more loosely fitted for better movement. In fact, she often wore her father's shirts for this reason. May topped off this ensemble with a headband, crowned with a large bow just above her forehead. Her stockings and shoes were all white.

Ethel Thomson used drop shots to build a 5-2 lead in the first set of her qf with Sutton until the Americans's superior driving wore her down at 8-6 6-1. Commenting on this match, Molla Bjurstedt Mallory said, "Mrs. Bundy (Miss May Sutton) is a hard and accurate driver; it was her driving that brought her the English championship, although she plays extremely well overhead when such play is needed. She drove so well that some of the English women thought they could break up her game if only they could dislodge her from the command of the drive. In the championship singles of 1905 Mrs. Larcombe (then Miss E. W. Thompson) planned to win from Miss Sutton with a volley game. She lured Miss Sutton to the net by a short, drop drive and then lobbed the return high to the base line; this gave her the chance to reach the net, where she caught Miss Sutton's return of the lob with a sharp cross-court volley for the ace. Miss Thompson won five out of the first seven games by these tactics, but she ran herself off her feet in the winning; she became feebler and feebler, while Miss Sutton was as fresh and strong as at the beginning. Having worn herself out, Miss Thompson lost all control and Miss Sutton ran out that set and then took the second set and the match without the least trouble. Possibly Miss Thompson might have won had she been able to keep up her starting pace but she went the way of all women volleyers. I am fairly certain that, some day, a girl will burst out with the ability to play the fast game through the course of two tournament sets; that girl will be, beyond question, a champion. But there is no sight of her as yet."

In the Challenge Round may beat Douglass 6-3 6-4. The holder was hampered by a wrist injury suffered in France 3 months earlier. She almost considered defaulting until "a course of electricity" allowed her to practice and compete.

"The rallies were sometimes long and exciting but when they were extended May invariably won the point with a crushing forehand drive. Her victory never seemed in doubt" after she dropped the first game. May hit continuously to Douglass's backhand to gain errors.

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 12, 1905:

“A huge interested audience was gathered together in the centre court when Miss Douglass most pluckily, in spite of the troublesome pain to her right wrist, and consequent want of practice, started the match with a bad omen of what was to come – a double fault. Nevertheless she won the first game, which, however, was the only one she managed to capture for some time, as Miss Sutton, playing far better than we have seen her before, took the next five. Here, however, the holder made a determined effort, and, winning the next two games, caused the score to be called 5-3 in Miss Sutton’s favour. This, however, was unavailing, as the American, who was not to be denied, ran out a winner of the first set at 6-3.

“In the second and what proved to be the deciding set Miss Sutton, who played in relentless fashion on Miss Douglass’s backhand, placed the first three games to her credit before the latter lady, by dint of some good well-played services and telling drives, managed to win two games; she, however, lost the sixth game to 15, which gave Miss Sutton the useful lead of 4-2. In the next game, with Miss Sutton serving, the holder got to 40-30, but lost it, making the score 5-2 in favour of the challenger. Nothing daunted, she, however, although deuce was called in the next, won the game, and also the next, but this was her final effort, as she lost the next game to love and with it the set at 6-4.

“Thus for the first time the Ladies’ Championship has gone from this country. Miss Sutton’s service, which is not strong, was considerably better than her opponent’s, and she got it in consistently. There was little variety in the play, practically no lobbing and hardly a volley shot being attempted. The rallies were sometimes long and exciting, and when they were long Miss Sutton invariably carried off the point with a well and fiercely directed forehand drive. Absolute confidence and splendid condition marked Miss Sutton’s entire effort, and she seemed mistress of the situation from the first game of the second set.”

Although born in England, May Sutton was raised in the United States and in 1905 became the first overseas player to win a Wimbledon singles title. She won the title without the loss of a set, making her the first - and to this day still the only - player, male or female, to win both the US Championships and Wimbledon on her debut and in straight sets. In addition, she was still a teenager when she achieved both feats.

Note that the ladies doubles and mixed doubles are non-championship events.

Draw Notes

The draw of 48 – a record for the women's singles event at Wimbledon – features not only two pairs of sisters – the rather obscure E. Flemmich and L. Flemmich, and D. Taplin and M. Taplin – but also a set of three sisters. These are the Meyers, Cornelia ("Connie"), Frieda and Nora. They were German in origin.

O'Neill is the married name of the Englishwoman Madeline Fisher.

H. I Harper=Helen Harper.
B. M. Holder=Bertha Holder
G. M. Houselander=Gertrude Houslander

Dorothea Douglass d. May Sutton (US) (holder) 6-3 9-7

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

Summary

British papers have dubbed the defending Yank May Sutton, "The Pasdena Washerwoman" because of her shocking habit of exposing her arms. The prospect of Miss Douglass retaking her title stirs more excitement than usual for the ladies event.

Douglass bears down in 1906 and takes 10 titles, dropping only 2 sets all year. One of those wins is at Wimbledon, where she romps through the field. Over 4,000 show for a Thursday final (A capacity crowd at Worple Road) where Douglass beats the American. The second set is a thriller, Dorothea coming back from 0-4 to 5-4. In the 12th game Sutton saves 4 match points with "plucky play". "May Sutton, though hitting as hard as ever, couldn't control her strokes at the crucial stages." May's balls were flying long over the baseline, often by a foot. This is only May's second loss on British soil, both at the hands of Douglass.

Note that the doubles and mixed events were still not championship status.

Challenge Round
Sutton d. Dorothea Chambers 6-1 6-4
---------------------------------

A record of 4 foreign entries. 2 Austrian sisters and a Canadian join May Sutton, out to reclaim her position as the world's unofficial #1. May had little trouble getting to the Challenge round, though Toupie Lowther led at 4-2 40 love in the second set in round 2. In the All Comers final Wilson made it a match. "Time and again she manoeuvred for the kill, only to volley into the net." It was closer than the 6-4 6-2 score suggests, as 11 of the 18 games went to deuce, Miss Wilson often having advantage point.

In the Challenge round Chambers appeared pale and anxious as her opponent "brimmed with confidence".
Chambers (Douglass had married in 1907) hammered away at May's weaker backhand, but this stroke had improved since last year. Sutton's shots cleared the net by only an inch or so with tremendous pace.At 1-3 in set 2 Chambers resorted to matching pace for pace and drew up to 4 all. Dorothea saved 3 match points before falling at 6-1 6-4.

In 1907 Chambers was still wearing sleeves that covered her wrists, a tie and belt added color to an all-white costume. May's sleeves were rolled above her elbow as usual. Both women look severe in hair buns and grim looks that proclaim they are ready to kill.

As a sidenote: Mita Klima becomes the youngest ever ladies singles competitor at the age of 13.

Sterry gets her 5th Wimbledon after a gap of some years. The key to her win is a quarterfinal upset over Chambers. Charlotte still has the record as the oldest Wimbledon champion at age 37 and 9 months.

Sutton doesn't defend. She wouldn't return to Wimbledon until 1929. In a letter of 1908 to American Lawn Tennis she wrote that if the English "Wanted their cup back they could come here (America)." No Englishwoman took up the challenge.

She will return in 1920 as the highly regarded American Molla Mallory, emigrating to the US and marrying during the 1st World War.

Chambers is absent from the championships due to the birth of her first child in June.

Summary:

Chambers returns to tennis after an 18 month absence in May. The press wondered if her time was past. Could she return as before? Her reply was to whip through the Wimbledon draw with the loss of only 16 games in 6 matches. In the semis she had early difficulty with Johnson, a surprise winner over Gladys Lamplough, but coasted after adjusting to the stiff wind. In the final Dorothea won easily, though Dora did score several aces off her serve.

Castenschiold becomes the first Dane to make the quarters of a slam.

Mrs. Chambers went undefeated all year, winning 7events out of 8. The only event she didn't win after entering was Croydon, where she defaulted the final because of a cold.

Draw notes:

Lady Crosfield=Domini Elliadi Crosfield, of Greek origin. Could the other D Elliadi in this draw be a sister?


Notes: The final is over in 25 minutes. Chambers is devastating. "She never played better and ,as usual, her marvelous headwork, rather than the actual force of her stroke, gave her victory." Boothby never gave up, 4 times extending games to deuce. Both the score and the time remain Wimbledon records.

*A book lists Hannam as "Ethel",not Edith. It also calls Coles "Maud" not Mildred.

----------------------------------------
Notes:
Ethel Larcombe finally graps a Wimbledon title in the absence of Dorothea Chambers. Chambers, unbeaten in singles in 1910 and 1911, had her second child in April. She announced her intention to defend her Wimbledon crown but changed her mind after a long mixed doubles in the championship.

The 3 foreign entries were all unfortunately in the same part of the draw. "Liz"(or "Bunny") Ryan will enter every Wimbledon from 1912 to 1934. Her first Wimbledon is memorable as she holds a match point in her quarterfinal vs. Hillyard.

Larcombe earned it by defeating both Hillyard and Sterry decisively in the semis and finals. The two losers have 11 Wimbledon singles between them!

Larcombe=married name of Thomsen.
