Eastbourne Chmps (South of England Chmps)

Traditionally held in September until a change in the 1970s made it the preeminent Wimbledon warmup event.

A Challenge Round was in force in early years.

The women's singles seems to have been a handicap for the first three years (and in 1886), but we are not sure of the exact handicap. Blanche Bingley didn't play in the 1884 tournament, so her overall record is 11 wins from 15 finals (some of these were Challenge Rounds).

1882 Miss Hudson d. Miss Congreve [score?]
1883 M. Leslie d. Miss Congreve 10-8 6-4
1884 F. Burton d. N. Burton 6-2 6-4

1887 Margaret Bracewell d. Blanche Hillyard 6-4 6-2
1888 Blanche Hillyard d. Margaret Bracewell 6-1 6-1
1889 May Langrishe d. May Jacks 6-2 5-7 6-1 (probably All-Comers final)
1890 May Langrishe d. Lilian Pine-Coffin 6-2 6-3
1891 Blanche Hillyard d. May Langrishe 2-6 7-5 6-0

Filderstadt/Stuttgart: Tournament History & Former Champions
Although a joint grand prix circuit had existed for men and women 1971-3, from 1974-1977, there was no international women's tour like the one we know today, just the Virginia Slims circuit & championships in the US. All the other international tournaments around the world were one-off events, not leading to any YEC. In late 77, however, an International Women's Series was reborn under the sponsorship of Colgate and the inaugural Filderstadt tournament was part of it. It is currently the oldest continually running indoor event in Europe. Below is a summary of the results in the finals with a brief note about the event each year.

1978
Austin bt Stove 63 63
Austin & Stove bt Jausovec & Ruzici 63 62
Top seeded Tracy beat Mima Jausovec in the semis and Betty Stove in the final to win her first main tour title, having just turned pro.

1979
Austin bt Navratilova 62 60
King & Navratilova bt Stove & Turnbull 63 63

Prize money for the event jumped from $35K to $100K, the lion's share of which went to Austin who, just after her US Open triumph, defended her title with back-to-back wins over Chris (63 75) and Martina. The 32-draw event also attracted Billie Jean King (lost 2r to unknown Swede Nina Bohm) Kerry Melville-Reid (defaulted qf to Navratilova) and Wendy Turnbull (lost 62 61 qf to Evert), plus the 17 year old Hana Mandlikova in her first season on the tour. Hana pushed Tracy harder than anyone, going down 64 57 64 in the 2r.

1980
Austin bt Acker 62 75
Mandlikova & Stove bt K. Jordan & A. Smith 64 75
Another prize money hike to $125k but no change in the champion.
With Austin, Mandlikova and Jaeger, all under 18, as the top three seeds, the tournament had a decidedly junior feel to it. Tracy's path to the title was made considerably easier when unheralded Sherry Acker took out Mandlikova 64 62 in round 2 and continued her giant-killing exploits against Ruzici in the semi final. Austin disposed of Jaeger 64 64 to register her 3rd win over Andrea in their fifth encounter.

1981 Austin bt Navratilova 46 63 64
Jausovec & Navratilova bt Barbara Potter & A. Smith 64 62
Tracy made it 4 in a row in a field which contained four other top 10 players. She beat Kohde-Kilsch, Pfaff, Jausovec and Ruzici in straight sets before edging past Martina in a final which was considerably closer than the one they had played at Filderstadt two years previously, coming back from a set down just as she had done at the US Open a couple of months earlier. As Tracy mainained her unbeaten run in the singles, Martina did so in doubles with her second title in two visits.

1982 Navratilova bt Austin 63 63
Navratilova & Shriver bt C. Reynolds & A. Smith 62 60
After 24 consecutive victories in the event, Tracy finally surrendered her crown to Navratilova in an error-strewn match after Martina had double-bagelled Jausovec in the semis. All in all it was not a happy tournament for Tracy. In the 1st round she met 13 year old Steffi Graf and, after beating her 64 60 was asked how she rated the German's prospects. She replied with the now famous remark that there were hundreds of players as good as her back in the States. Tracy was booed off court after winning her second round match against Ruzici on a controversial line call and then suffered the indignity of dropping a set to 17 year old Helena Sukova in the QF. Germany had its first semi finalist when Hanika beat Shriver 61 26 62 in the QF and Fourth seeded Mandlikova was upset by Jo Durie in round 2. Poor Anne Smith ended up a beaten finalist i the doubles for the third successive year.

1983 Navratilova bt Tanvier 61 62
Navratilova & Candy Reynolds bt Ruzici and Tanvier 62 61
Navratilova, dropping just one service game the entire tournament, retained her crown against surprise finalist Cathy Tanvier of France, who had put out Sukova and Ruzici. Mandlikova continued her miserable run in the event with a second round loss to Catrin Jexell

1984 Lindqvist bt Graf 61 64
Kohde-Kilsch & Sukova bt Bunge & Pfaff 26 64 63
With the top names all missing from the draw, Steffi Graf kept the crowds happy by becoming the first home player to reach the finals. En route, she beat Claudia kohde-Kilsch 62 26 63 in the QF and Andrea Leand 76 16 63 in the SF. All in all it was a good week for Germany, as bettina Bunge had beaten #2 seed Manuela Maleeva in round 1, Sylvia Hanika knocked out the previous year's finalist Cathy Tanvier and Eva Pfaff made it to the QF with a 63 61 win over top seed Kathy Jordan. In the doubles final, three of the four players were German, too but ultimately the week belonged to Catarina Lindqvist as she won her first major title.

1985 Shriver bt Lindqvist 61 75
Mandlikova & Shriver bt Karlsson & Scheuer-Larsen 62 61
Pam beat off the challenge from Steffi Graf (#3 seed) 64 63 in the SF and defending champion Lindqvist, (victor over 2 seeded Claudia Kohde-Kilsch having saved a match point) to lift the title. Graf announced to the press after her semi final defeat that she would never play Filderstadt again because she did not feel the crowd was supporting her enough. Pam also won the doubles partnering Mandlikova, who was playing doubles only.

1986 Navratilova bt Mandlikova 62 63
Navratilova & Shriver bt Garrison & Sabatini 76 64
Martina claimed singles victory #1000 by beating Nathalie Tauziat in round 1, turned 30, beat third seeded Pam Shriver 61 76 and second seeded Hana Mandlikova to win the title and then teamed with Pam to take the doubles crown as well. But it all could have ended differently if Catarina Lindqvist had converted one of the four match points she held against Navratilova at 6-3 5-4 40-15 and again at 6-3 6-5 40-15 in the second set. Having failed, though, and lost the tie break, Lindvist did not win another game. Hana had no such traumas en route to the final, dismissing Zina and Gaby for the loss of just three games each in the penultimate rounds, though by the time she reached the final she was carrying a stomach muscle injury which prevented her from posing any serious threat to Martina.

1987 Navratilova bt Evert 75 61
Navratilova & Shriver bt Garrison & McNeil 61 62
Meeting #75 for Martina and Chris but this time in a new venue for them. Martina opened up her h2h to 40-35 to win her 4th title at Filderstadt and record her 20th consecutive win in the event. Martina had to come from 2-4 behind in the first set and broke Chris to clinch the first set on her third break point before running away with the second. Chris had let slip a 62 53 lead in the QF against Mary Joe Fernandez befiore finally clopsing out the match 62 57 64 and had beaten Pam 75 63 in the semis, whereas Martina had beaten Lori McNeil 64 62 and Gaby 62 62 in her quarter and semi. The field was very stong with only Graf, Mandlikova and Maleeva missing from the top flight. The cliffhanger match of the event was the 67 (10) 76 (5) 63 battle between Sabatini and Sukova in the quarter finals.

1988 Navratilova bt Evert 62 63
Kuczynska & Navratilova bt Rafaella Reggi & Elna Reinach 61 64

The drama of the 1988 edition was not in the final but the first round as Jana Novotna beat Sabatini 16 76(4) 76(8), saving two match points, and Barbara Paulus crushed Claudia Kohde-Kilsch 63 62 in two big upsets. The top two made their way calmly to the final for their penultimate (79th) encounter which was a repeat of the previous year's final.

1989 Sabatini bt MJ Fernandez 76(5) 64
Gigi Fernandez & Robin White bt Rafaella Reggi & Elna Reinach 64 76
The expected final, between top 2 seeds Sabatini and Garrison did not happen because Mary Joe came from behind to upset her compatriot 36 64 75 and reach her first major final. Zina's defeat may have been attributable to the four consecutive games she lost after a self-inflicted but accidental blow the nose with her own tennis racquet at 1-1 in the final set. Gaby sailed thorugh to the final with straight sets wins over Hana Mandlikova (63 60) and Laura Arraya-Gildemeister (61 62) in the quarters and semis. The greatest match of the week, though, was the three-hour 64 46 76 (5) QF between Mary Joe and Monica Seles. Mary Joe came back from 1-4 down to win the first set and Monica came back from 2-5 in the third to take a 6-5 lead in the third but it was Mary Joe who pulled it out in the 'breaker.

1990 MJ Fernandez bt Paulus 61 63
MJ Fernandez & Garrison bt Paz & Sanchez-Vicario 75 63

#8 Paulus puts out 4 seeded Garrison 26 75 64 in the QF and top seeded Sabatini 63 64 in the semis but is no match for MJF in the final, as the American goes one better than the runners-up sopt of the previous year. Maggie Maleeva goes down to MJF 75 60 in the other SF.

1991 A Huber bt Navratilova 26 62 76(4)
Navratilova & Novotna bt Shriver & Zvereva 62 57 64

Anke Huber took out Garrison 62 61, Sukova 63 76 and Navratilova to give Germany its first home winner. Sukova had put out Mary Joe, defending champ and #2 seed 57 63 63 in the quarter finals and Martinez, the #3, had been dispatched by Zvereva 76 75 in the first round. The final result marked Navratilova's first defeat by an unseeded player since Horvath in 83 at Roland Garros but in tandem with Novotna she gained some consolation by winning the doubles.

1992 Navratilova bt Sabatini 76(1) 63
Sanchez-Vicario & Sukova bt Shriver & Zvereva 64 75
The top 4 seeds, destined to finish ranked 3-6 at the end of the year, all made it to the semi finals and Navratilova won her 6th Filderstadt crown with straight sets wins over Sukova 63 76 , Sanchez 61 61 and Sabatini. Mary Joe Fernandez, whop put out defending champ Huber 57 63 61 in the quarter finals, was Sabatini's victim in the semis, going down 75 62

1993 Pierce bt Zvereva 63 63
G. Fernandez & Zvereva bt Fendick & Navratilova 76(6) 64
Mary survives a close QF encounter with home fave Barbara Rittner 46 63 75 but then eases past Garrison 62 62 and Zvereva to pick up her 5th tour title and first Tier II. Natasha ousts net rushers Navratilova 63 76 (5) in the QF and Tauziat 46 76 (3) 63 in the SF to chalk up two big wins and adds the doubles title to her list of successes.

1994 A Huber bt Pierce 64 62
G. Fernandez & Zvereva bt Bollegraf & Savchenko-Neiland 76(5) 64

Huber won the title for the second time beating Navratilova, Werdel and Pierce. The event is most remembered, however, for the presence of Martina Hingis, playing her second main tour event. In the first round she trounced Sukova 62 61 and followed it up with a win over Christina Singer before falling to Werdel in the quarter finals. Had both Martinas won their QF matches, they'd have met in the semis. Top seeded Conchita martinez was also a QF casualty, going down to Karina Habsudova 64 61.

1995 Majoli bt Sabatini 64 76(4)
Gigi Fernandez & Zvereva bt McGrath & Savchenko-Neiland 57 61 64

October 1995 was the month where Iva Majoli won her first two pro titles, back to back. Having won Zurich the week before, she squeaked past second-seeded Pierce 26 63 62 and Chanda Rubin 64 16 76 before besting gaby in straight sets. Defending Champ Huber got as far as the semis before bowing to Sabatini 64 61 and Martinez, top seed, fell to Begerow, a qualifier in her first match 64 63.

1996 Hingis bt A Huber 62 36 63
Arendt & Novotna bt Hingis & Sukova 62 63

Filderstadt 1996 was where Martina Hingis won her first tour title, one week after making the top 10 for the first time in her career. In doing so she put out top-seeeded Arantxa Sanchez Vicario 61 64 and #4 Lindsay Davenport 36 62 63 before beating local favourite Anke Huber, who had eliminated #2 Conchita Martinez 61 63 and Judith Wiesner, in the final.

1997 Hingis bt Raymond 64 62
Hingis & Sanchez-Vicario bt Davenport & Novotna 76 (4) 36 76 (3)

Hingis retained her title, dropping just one set to Zvereva in her 2nd round 46 61 64 win. Her path was made easier by Raymond's removal of #2 seed Novotna 36 64 64 in the QF. Qualifiers Patty Schnyder (bt #3 Majoli 62 62 in the semis and wild card Kournikova lost a close three setter 36 63 64 to Coetzer in the same round. Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, unseeded put out #4 Davenport to make it to the QF, where she was beaten 75 64 by Spirlea.

1998 Testud bt Davenport 75 63
Davenport & Zvereva bt Kournikova & Sanchez-Vicario 64 62

A victor noone would have predicted from a field containing the year end top 5 in the world! In fact, only Seles, Graf and Spirlea were missing from the year-end top 17! The seeding list comprised: #1 Hingis (lost QF to van Roost 63 67 64), #2 Davenport, #3 Novotna (lost 2nd round to Serena Williams 26 63 20 rtd), #4 Sanchez (lost SF to Davenport 76 64), #5 Venus Williams (lost 2nd round to van Roost 61 62), #6 Conchita Martinez (lost 2nd round 64 26 62 to Raymond), #7 Tauziat (lost 76 75 QF to Davenport) and #8 Schnyder (lost 1r to Anke Huber). Unseeded participants were Kournikova, Zvereva, Pierce and Coetzer and young Mauresmo had to qualify! Yet somehow, Testud came through without facing a seed until the final when she swept past Davenport in straight sets.

1999 Hingis bt Pierce 64 61
Rubin & Testud bt Savchenko-Neiland & Sanchez-Vicario 63 64

Martina Hingis returned to take her third title in four years, beating wildcard Jennifer Capriati, on the comeback trail 64 60, Dechy 62 64, defending champ Testud 67 62 64 and #4 seed Mary Pierce. Another wildcard, two time champion Anke Huber benefitted from good form to beat #7 Halard in round one and Likhovtseva 64 63 in round two and good luck in the form of #2 seed Davenport's withdrawal in the QF to make it to the last 4. Third seed Serena Williams fell to Testud 36 64 75 in the second round.

2000
Hingis bt Clijsters 60 63
Hingis & Kournikova bt Sanchez-Vicario & Schett 64 62

Top seed Hingis concedes just 10 games in 4 matches against Henin (rtd 63 30), Monami-van Roost, Sanchez-Vicario and Clijsters en route to the title. Clijsters upsets #2 seed Martinez 75 75 in the QF and #3 seed Tauziat 36 64 61 in the SF to read her first tier II final.

2001 Davenport bt Henin 75 64
Davenport & Raymond bt Henin & Shaughnessy 64 67 (4) 75
Third seed Davenport beat Kremer, Mauresmo, Hingis (2-1 rtd) and Henin to win her first Filderstadt title. Hingis fell and tore ankle ligaments, an injury that required surgery, ended her season and her reign at #1. Anke Huber beat #4 Clijsters 63 46 63 in the second round to make the QF and former champ Testud put out Capriati 26 63 63 in the a round later. Both were subsequently beaten by Justine.

2002 Clijsters bt Hantuchova 46 63 64
Davenport & Raymond bt Shaughnessy & Suarez 62 64

#6 Clijsters came back from a set down three times in five matches against Myskina, Majoli, Davenport (#2) 46 63 64, Mauresmo 36 63 75 and Hantuchova en route to the 2002 title. Qualifier Alexandra Stevenson eliminated top seeded Capriati 76 (4) 46 64 in the QF and Myriam Casanova took out #4 Henin 75 46 64 a round earlier.

2003 Clijsters bt Henin 75 46 62
Raymond & Stubbs bt Black & Navratilova 62 64

Clijsters retained her title in an all-Belgian final following straight sets wins over Hantuchova, Mauresmo and Pierce. Bovina was the surprise semi finalist, having put out Myskina 62 63 and Davenport 63 62 in successive rounds.

2004 Davenport bt Mauresmo 62 retired
Black & Stubbs bt Groenefeld & Schruff 63 62

Mauresmo and Davenport, engaged in a battle royal for the #1 spot on the computer met in the final but the Frenchwoman was forced to retire with an adductor injury. Myskina, Roland Garros Champ, and Kuznetsova, US Open Champ, were the beaten semi finalists, going down 62 64 and 75 64 to Lindsay and Amélie respectively as the top 4 seeds made it to the semi finals. With early round straight sets wins over Molik and Jankovic, Lindsay dropped just 16 games in the tournament.

2005 Davenport bt Mauresmo 62 64
Hantuchova & Myskina bt Peschke & Schiavone 60 36 75

In a repeat of the previous year's final, top-seeded Davenport defeated a healthy Mauresmo for her third Filderstadt title. Italian Flavia Pennetta ousted #4 Justine Henin 64 63 but then fell to a resurgent Daniela Hantuchova, whose semi final in the singles (where she lost 64 63 to Davenport) was accompanied by victory in the doubles, alongside Myskina. The Belgians had a bad week, with #2 seed Kim Clijsters losing to Elena Dementieva in the quarter finals 63 36 62. The Russian #5 seed then lost 63 64 to #3 Mauresmo.

************************************

The German Open
The first edition (for women) having taken place in 1896 in Hamburg, the German Open is one of the oldest tournaments on the WTA tour. It was held in Hamburg until 1978 (with breaks from 1914-19 and 1940-47 inclusive because of war) and transferred to the Rott-Weiss (Red-White) Club in Berlin in 1979. In 1980, the Federation Cup was played at the Rott-Weiss Club instead of the normal tournament. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the German Open's transfer to Berlin.

The tournament was traditionally held in August as the last major tournament of the year on European soil and came at the end of a European post-Wimbledon summer clay-court circuit which included tournaments in Sweden, The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Russia/USSR as well as several events in Germany, most notably the Bavarian Championships in Munich. After Wimbledon, the top players either headed across the Atlantic to play on the American circuit leading up to the US Championships or they stayed on the clay in Europe.

Until the upheavals in the circuit in the 1970s, the German Open, along with the Italian and South African Championships, was considered one of the most prestigious tournaments outside of the Grand Slam events. However, when the US professional tennis circuit emerged in the early 70s, the European tournaments could not compete with the prize money on offer stateside and the European circuit lost its prestige. In 1971, the German Championships tried to maintain its status by changing date and becaming a major warm-up event for Roland Garros. Its status continued to decline, however, because most of the top players in the 70s were involved in World Team Tennis and stopped competing on European clay altogether.

Happily, the tournament's fortunes were revived in the 1980s thanks first to the return of top players from overseas after the collapse of World Team Tennis and then to the emergence of Steffi Graf whose immense success contributed to the dramatic increase in the popularity of tennis in Germany and whose loyalty to the German Open ensured that it attracted the fans.

Recently, however, the tournament's future has been thrown into doubt by financial problems. The roll of honour for this tournament indicates its important place in the history of women's tennis and let's hope that this year's event is a resounding success which guarantees the future of this event for many years to come.

Irish Championships/Irish Open

The Irish Championships were inaugurated in 1879. The tournament as a whole was initially held on the grass courts in Fitzwilliam Square, Dublin, close to the city centre. However, the first women’s singles event was at least partially held indoors, on an asphalt court laid on the rink of the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club in Upper Pembroke Street (around the corner from Fitzwilliam Square).

Starting in 1887, a women’s singles event had been held at the South of Ireland Championships in County Limerick, a few weeks after the first Wimbledon tournament. However, the Irish Championships in Dublin constituted the first major (so to speak) national tournament in the world to feature both a women’s singles and a mixed doubles event.

Up until 1908, the Irish Championships were held a few weeks before the Championships at Wimbledon, but subsequently almost always took place later in the calendar. From 1919 forward the event was traditionally the week after Wimbledon, a lucky circumstance that often netted the event a good field. Up until 1974 the Irish was an event of consequence. From 1974 the decline in staure was swift.

From 1903 to 1972, the tournament was held on the grass courts of the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club at Wilton Place, Dublin (with one exception, in 1967, when the tournament was held at Ashbrook Lawn Tennis Club, Rathgar, Dublin; this club is located quite far from the city centre, in south Dublin). By this time the tournament was being called the Irish Open. From 1973 to 1990, it was held at the new grounds of the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club in the Appian Way, Dublin, close to Wilton Place. Both the Appian Way and Wilton Place are a short bus ride from Dublin city centre. The surface was a hard (cement) court.

In 1991, the tournament moved to the Riverview Racquets and Fitness Club in Clonskeagh, Dublin, not very far from the Appian Way. The ITF states the surface was clay. In 1997, the men’s events moved to a different venue, while the women’s events remained in Clonskeagh, switching to an indoor carpet surface. From the year 2000, the women’s events were held at different venues in Dublin.

The last mixed doubles event was held in 1991.

The women’s singles and women’s doubles events were discontinued after 2005.

Italian Open

The Italian Open is the youngest of the great national championships, having begun in 1930. In that inaugural year, Bill Tilden carried off the men’s title and Lilli de Alvarez the women’s crown. That first tournament and the four which followed it were held in Milan but in 1935 the event was moved to the Foro Italico in Rome. The stadium, which had been built in 1925 close to the Colosseo in the neo-classical style in vogue at that time as it evoked the greatness of Ancient Rome, is surrounded by giant marble statues and pine trees and one of the most beautiful tennis arenas in the world.

The citizens of Rome had to wait until 1950 for the next edition of the “Internazionali d’Italia” as the championship was suspended from 1936-49 because of the Abyssinian and Second World Wars. In 1961, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the modern Italian state, the tournament was held in Turin, the capital of Piedmont, whose King had become King of Italy in 1861. Throughout the 50s and 60s, the women’s event enjoyed its heyday, regularly attracting almost all the top players who were playing the European clay court circuit. During this period, it was seen as the most important event outside the Grand Slams. The first open edition was held in 1969, the Italian federation having resisted calls to declare the tournament open the previous year.

As the 1970s progressed, however, the event suffered heavily from the establishment of the Virginia Slims circuit and World Team Tennis. Nevertheless, it continued to attract the all the players who were not committed to WTT and remained the principal warm-up event for Roland Garros. In 1979, following the collapse of WTT, the WTA, in association with Colgate, made a major effort to restore the championships to their former glory. The women held their own separate event at the Foro Italico and the draw included six former champions. However, the 32-player draw meant that after completion of the first round, there were only 15 matches left to play and the crowds stayed away in droves. Because of this setback, the event was moved to Perugia the following year, where it stayed until 1984. The 1985 Taranto tournament, with prize money of only $50,000, was accorded the title of the Italian Open in 1985, but bore little resemblance to the championships of old. In 1986, a $75,000 event, the Ellesse Grand Prix, was staged at Perugia but the Italian federation refused to acknowledge it as the Italian Open. At that time, plans were already laid to bring the women’s championships back to the Foro Italico in Rome in 1987 in conjunction with IMG. Since 1987, the tournament has re-established itself as the second most important event in the European clay-court season together with the German Championships.

Italian Open Chronicle:

1930-35.
Elizabeth Ryan (1933) and Helen Jacobs (1934) won the Italian Championships, and in so doing scored a point against Lenglen and Wills, whose names are missing from this roll of honour. In 1935, the field included many top Europeans: Krahwinkel, Ryan, Cilly Aussem and Jadwiga Jedrezjowska.

1950-59
1953 – Maureen Connolly’s final defeat at the hands of Doris Hart was one of only two she suffered that year and one of only 4 she suffered from the US Championships in 1951 to the end of her career in summer 1954.
1956 Althea Gibson won her first major international title.
1958 Maria Bueno enchanted the Roman crowds and the tennis world at large, beating Thelma Long 61 61, Shirley Bloomer 16 97 86 and Coghlan 36 63 63 to win her first major tournament on her first European tour.
1959: 18 year-old Christine Truman lost just 8 points in the first set and 11 in the second in a final rout of Sandra Reynolds en route to her first major international title. She went on to win at Roland Garros. Reynolds had beaten holder Maria Bueno 46 75 63 in a thrilling semi-final.

1960-69
1960 The championships were severely disrupted by rain. In the semi-finals, Suzi Kormoczy beat Jan Lehane 61 60 and Ann Haydon bt Sandra Reynolds 62 75.
1961 In the semi finals, Maria Bueno defeated Margaret Smith, playing on her first European tour, 64 63 and then regained the title with a win over Lesley Turner 64 64.
1962 At her second attempt, Margaret Smith lifted her first Italian title, defeating Christine Truman in a three-set quarter final, Darlene Hard 75 63 in the semi-final, saving three set points, and Maria Bueno 86 57 64 in the final. Controversially, both Bueno and Smith had courtside “coaching” during the final.
1963 Margaret Smith retained her title, beating Duldig, Starkie, Ebbern, Lehane and Turner 63 64 (coming back to win the last four games of the second set).
1964 Margaret Smith defeated Liz Starkie 62 64, Helga Schultze 75 63, Vera Sukova 61 61 and Lesley Turner 61 61 to achieve the hat-trick and retired the trophy.
1965 Maria Bueno defeated Nancy Richey 61 16 63 for her third Italian singles title, some compensation for never lifting the trophy at Roland Garros.
1966 Ann Jones def. Annette van Zyl 86 61 on the first leg of a Rome-Paris double.
1967 After three final defeats, Lesley Turner finally won the tournament, beating top seed Maria Bueno 63 63 in the final.
1968 As the tournament was not declared “Open”, contracted professionals Billie Jean King, Ann Jones, Frankie Durr and Rosie Casals were barred from entering. The top seed and defending champion Lesley Turner was a surprise winner over second seeded favourite Margaret Court, who was suffered a bout of nerves in her first major clay-court final since her comeback. 4th seed Virginia Wade provided the fireworks when she lost her temper with the umpire and then the match against Faye Toyne-Moore in round of 32.
1969 At the first Italian "Open", Julie Heldman was the shock winner, dispatching holder Turner in the quarters, Ann Jones in the semis, where she came back from 46 34 to win 46 64 61, and then Kerry Melville, conqueror of Billie Jean King 63 60 in their quarter final. Wade again provided the scandal, losing to Peaches Bartkowicz in the last 16 “in a bad-tempered match in which Miss Wade made certain comments that will go down in tennis history.” John Oakley, World of Tennis 1970, p86.

1970-9
1970 Billie Jean King won her first major clay court title aged 26 beating Helga Niessen 16 62 64, Virginia Wade and holder Julie Heldman 61 63. The semi-final against Wade, which ended 36 75 63, was played on Centre Court and enthralled the crowd. King saved two match points at 4-5 in the second set and at 5-6, the 12th game contained 21 deuces and lasted for 22 minutes. Wade saved 7 set points and held 16 game points.

1971 The women’s tournament was staged in collaboration with WCT, who ran the men’s event. There was only a draw of 16 for the women and the field was relatively weak. After years of providing the thrills and spills at the championships, Virginia Wade finally claimed victory, beating Niessen-Masthoff in the final for her most prestigious clay-court victory.
1972 Top-seeded defending champion Virgina Wade was the only big name in the draw but went out to Schildeknechkt-Orth 62 63 in the last 16. Third-seeded American Linda Tuero beat second-seeded Masthoff 75 06 62 in the semis and unseeded Olga Morozova in the final.
1973 The tournament was held after Roland Garros and, in the absence of French Open winner Margaret Court, the players she had beaten in the last two rounds in Paris, Evonne Goolagong and Chris Evert, occupied the top two seeding positions in their début year in Rome. Evert, having come so close in Paris and having beaten Evonne three times in succession, was the favourite. However, Evonne did not lose a set all tournament and inflicted a 76 60 defeat on Chrissie in 69 minutes. Evert led 3-1 in the first set but Evonne caught fire and lost just 11 points in the second set whitewash. Wade caused havoc again – refusing to shake hands with Marijke Schaar after her 1st rd victory and calling her a cheat. She lost to Kemmer in the 2nd round 64 16 75 after leading 54 in the third set.
1974 Chris Evert, 19, beat 17-year-old Martina Navratilova 63 63. Chris had dropped two sets en route to the title match. She was pushed to 4-4 in the third set by Maria Neumannova in an early round and beat Morozova 61 16 60 in the semi final. Navratilova reached the final with a 46 76 76 victory over Masthoff in 2 hours 45 minutes. The final set tie-break score was 14-12 and Martina won on her 8th match point, Masthoff having had two of her own. In keeping with tradition, Wade lost her temper and her quarter-final against Pat Walkden-Pretorius because the umpire was talking to a baseline judge on another court between rallies. Her 5-1 first set lead vanished as she lost 57 36.
1975 In the absence of King, Court and Goolagong, all playing Team Tennis in the States, Evert swept through the tournament majestically. She lost 13 games in 5 matches and clinched the title with a 1 & 0 humiliation of 2 seed Navratilova in the final in just 44 minutes. She said afterwards,“it must have been the worst that Martina has ever played against me”
1976 With all the top players now committed to World Team Tennis, the European clay court season was left to the second tier. Mima Jausovec, #4 seed, beat Lesley Hunt #3 seed in the final. Top seeded Sue Barker fell 61 61 to Regina Marsikova in the quarters. Former champ Maria Bueno made her return to the Foro Italico but went out in the first round to Kathy Harter 26 64 62.
1977 Janet Newberry, who had ousted Navratilova in the 1r of the US Open on clay the previous September, survived the onslaught of the best East Europeans to lift the title. Seeded 5, she beat Neumannova, conqueror of top seed Jausovec, 26 64 61 and Tomanova 63 76 in the last two rounds.
1978 #3 seed Regina Marsikova won the title without the loss of a set, beating # 2 seed Ruzici in the final.
1979 With World Team Tennis having folded, the Italian Open had its strongest field for many years. Former champion Jausovec went out in the first round to Austin, and Newberry and Marsikova went out in the second round to Evert and Madruga respectively. Once again Ginny made the headlines for all the wrong reasons, going out to Iris Reidel-Kuhn in her opening match.
In her 125th consecutive clay court victory, Evert dropped a set to Ivanna Madruga in the qf.
At 46 62 42, she looked to be on her way to victory #126 against Tracy Austin but the sixteen year-old pulled back to force a tie-break, in which she opened up a 5-1 lead. Evert won the next three points to move within three points of victory but it was Austin who closed out the match after almost three hours of play, winning 64 26 76 (4). In the other half of the draw, unseeded Sylvia Hanika took out #4 Fromholtz 63 16 62 and #8 Goolagong 75 36 75 before surrendering to Austin 64 16 63 in the final.

1980-89
1980 In the absence of defending champion Austin, Evert was restored to her throne as Queen of Italian Clay, beating Mandlikova 64 36 63 and Ruzici 57 62 62 to lift her third Italian title.
1981 Evert made it 4 titles with a 61 62 rout of Ruzici, the only other top claycourter in the draw, in the final.
1982 Evert took the title with a 60 63 drubbing of Mandlikova, who had been taken to three sets in her semi-final by 38 year-old Billie Jean King (36 61 63). Chris became the second woman to win three straight Italian Open titles. '79 finalist Hanika was beaten 60 06 63 by King in the quarter-finals.
1983 Andrea Temesvari won her biggest title in devastating form. She beat Helena Sukova 61 60, Kathy Rinaldi 60 60 and Bonnie Gadusek 61 60 in the last three rounds.
1984 In a rain-drenched tournament which necessitated a late finish on the Monday, Chris Evert failed at the last hurdle to win a 6th Italian open title. On that final day, eventual champion Manuela Maleeva defeated in succession Ruzici 76 46 62 in a match that had spanned 4 days and Carling Bassett 62 62 before upsetting Evert 63 63. Evert, who had beaten Lisa Bonder 61 61 in the semi, was affected by the disrupted schedule and never got going in the final.
1985 A new location (Taranto) and a desultory $50K in prize money failed to attract any top players. The tournament saw its first Italian winner since the 1930s as Rafaella Reggi beat Vicky Nelson 64 64 in the final.
1986 The Italian Federation suspended the championships but a $75K Ellesse Grand Prix was held at Perugia in their stead. Nathalie Herreman defeated Csilla Bartos-Cserepy 62 64 in the final.
1987 marked the return of the women to the Foro Italico for the first time since 1979 and all the top-ranked players in the world except Evert were there. The top 4 seeds made the semi finals: Graf (#1) beat Sukova (#3) 63 63 and Sabatini (#4) beat Navratilova (#2) 76 (2) 61. At the end of her match, Navratilova, who had led 5-2 with set point in the first set, collapsed in tears. In the final, Graf extended her h2h lead over Sabatini to 6-0 with a 75 46 60 victory in which she came back from 2-5 and set point down in the opening set. The Italian press cruelly cast Steffi in the role of the beast against Gaby’s beauty and Graf, offended, vowed not to return to the tournament.
1988 In her last Italian Open appearance, Evert was forced to default her 3r match against Helen Kelesi, who later beat Reggi in the qf and Sanchez in the sf. Evert made the headlines anyway, as she was received by the Pope at the Vatican. Sabatini emerged triumphant, beating Hanika, Wiesner and Kelesi.
1989 The event suffered a major blow when Evert and Navratilova withdrew at the 11th hour, as both abandoned the entire clay court season. Manuela Maleeva was #2 but 4th seeded Sanchez pushed eventual champion Sabatini the hardest in a thrilling three-setter 62 57 64 and provided an inkling as to what would happen at Roland Garros later on.

1990-1999
1990 Navratilova beat Martinez 62 60 (her only win over Conchita) and Sabatini 76 75 in the semi-final in a desperate bid to win a tournament that was missing from her list but was swept aside bt Seles 61 61 in final. Helen Kelesi beat Sanchez #3 64 75 in the third round and made the semis but lost 61 62 to Seles, who conceded just 14 games in 5 matches overall.
1991 Sabatini defeated Martinez 61 62 and Seles 63 62 to win her third title. Navratilova, the 3rd seed, was thwarted by Martinez 63 64 in the quarters.
1992 Sabatini upset Seles 75 64 in the final to win the top prize. Like Bueno before her, Sabatini could draw comfort from her triumphs in Rome for her disappointments in Paris.
1993 Conchita Martinez beat Navratilova 61 64, MJ Fernandez 76 64 and Sabatini (who had taken out top seeded Sanchez 61 63 in the semis) to lift her first Italian title and take over from Sabatini as Queen of Italian Clay.
1994 Martinez defended her title in a tight two-set 76 (5) 64 victory over Navratilova in the latter’s last season. Navratilova thus ended her career without an Italian singles title to her name. Ironically, her 4th and last final at the age of 37, was the closest she ever got.
1995 Martinez upset two-seeded Pierce 63 63 in sf and top-seeded Sanchez 63 61 in an all-Spanish final to win her third consecutive title. Sabatini had gone out in the third round to Sukova 26 76 76. This was the last final show for Sanchez, who would end her career without a singles title at the Italian Open.
1996 Marked the return of Steffi Graf to Rome after a nine-year absence. It was not a happy one, however, as Steffi went out to Martina Hingis 26 62 63 in the quarters. Hingis made it all the way to the final but lost to Martinez 62 63, who set a tournament record with her fourth title in a row.
1997 Another returning champion, Monica Seles, was upset in the L16 by Mary Pierce 76 76. #2 seed Arantxa Sanchez lost 61 61 to Patti Schnyder in the qf. Pierce ended the reign of Martinez with a 64 60 final victory.
1998 Hingis won what was to be her most important clay court title over Venus Williams 63 26 63. Venus beat sister Serena in the quarters 64 62. The third round had seen the eliminations of Martinez by Serena 62 62 and Monica Seles by Sandrine Testud.
1999 In a reversal of fortunes, Venus Williams beat top-seeded defending champion Martina Hingis 64 16 64 in the semis and Mary Pierce 64 62 to clinch her most prestigious clay court title to date. Hingis beat Serena 62 62 in the quarters.

2000-Present
2000 Ten years after winning her first Italian title, Seles won her most important title since the Australian Open of 1996, beating Mauresmo 62 76 in the final. Seles was only seeded 5 but the top 4 had all crashed out: Davenport defaulted to Casoni in the 3R, Tauziat (#2) went out to Zuluaga, Venus Williams (3) lost to Dokic and Pierce lost to Maursmo in the third round.
2001 Jelena Dokic, world ranked #23, won her first ever tournament and what is still her biggest title defeating Martinez and Mauresmo in the last two rounds.
2002 Serena Williams joined her sister on the roll of honour, beating Capriati in sf and Justine Hénin in the final for her first clay court title.
2003 Kim Clijsters beat Amélie Mauresmo, who had put out Serena Williams, coming back and winning 7 straight games and the second set tie-break from 36 56 in the final. The Frenchwoman is thus a three-time losing finalist, one short of Navratilova’s record 4 defeats without a victory.
2004: The Italian Open celebrates its diamond jubilee.

The 1926 Final was the first all-foreign women's final outside Wimbledon. 1958 saw the first Russians ever to compete in Great Britain, when Anna Dmitrieva made her debut. When Morozova and Metreveli won in 1972 it was the first Russian men's and women's combo in G. Britain.

Last an official event on the women's tour in 1978.

New South Wales Championships/Open Tournament History

The New South Wales Championships is among the oldest surviving tournaments on the international circuit – including Grand Slam events - and in 2005 celebrated its 120th birthday. From the mid 1885 to 1922, when the National Championships ceased to be a men-only event, the NSW and Victorian Championships (which began in 1884 but ceased to exist in 1971, since when the titles have been awarded to the winner of the Australian Open) were the leading events for Australian women. In fact, their status remained sufficiently high for Adrian Quist to write in the 1973 Encyclopedia of Tennis (edited by Max Robertson, p. 201) that from “an Australian viewpoint, the Championships of New South Wales (Sydney) and Victoria (Melbourne) carry almost the same prestige as the national titles.”

Traditionally held on the grass courts at White City in Sydney, they have been interrupted just once, from 1941-44 during WWII. In 1989, the surface switched to Rebound Ace, to bring the event in line with the surface used at the Australian Open at Flinders Park and at the turn of the millennium, the tournament left White City for the NSW tennis centre at Homebush Bay, which had been constructed for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. With Kuznetsova slated to play in the 2006 tournament, from what I can see, every winner of a grand slam tournament between Wimbledon 1958 and the US Open 2005 with two exceptions Karen Hantze-Susman, the Wimbledon Champion of 1962 who never played in Australia, and 2004 Wimbledon Champion Maria Sharapova has graced the tournament, though Tracy Austin only played doubles there once.

In the years before 1958, the roll of honour of the championships contains few foreigners and it took 49 years (1934) before Britain’s Dorothy Round became the first foreign winner. She remained the only non-Australian champion until Americans Doris Hart (1948) and Maureen Connolly (1952) came along after World War II. Nevertheless, virtually all the leading Australians, Margaret Molesworth (1919, 21), Sylvia Lance-Harper (1924,28), Daphne Akhurst (1929), Esna Boyd (1923, 26, 27), Joan Hartigan (1933), Beryl Penrose-Collier (1954), Thelma Coyne-Long (1935, 38, 40, 51, 53) and Nancye Wynne Bolton (1936, 37, 39, 45, 46, 47), appear on the roll of honour.

In the late 1950s and 1960s, doubtless due to a combination of Australian domination of men’s tennis raising the prestige of the Australian circuit and the rise in popularity of women’s tennis, the number of foreign competitors on the Australian circuit slowly began to increase. The following is a brief journey through the history of the New South Wales Championships from 1955-2005. As the Australian summer spans the turn of the year, I’ve used both years to show the season and then, when known, given the month the event took place. I’ve also noted the year-end ranking of the players (Lance Tingay’s top 10 until 1974 and then those of the WTA computer) to give an idea about the strength of the field.

Many thanks are due to Chris for some of the pre-final results pre 1967 and to AndrewTas for the full roll of honour he has compiled. If anyone can fill in any of the missing SF and QF results, that’d be great.

Will repost winners and finalists with scores. currently building a more detailed thread on the NSW Chmps with year by year scores and comments originally posted by Andy T

Nice

Tennis came to the Riviera with the English, who descended en masse on the Cote D' Azur after Queen Victoria made it her holiday spot in the late 1800s. During the Riviera season (December-March) several events would be held in Nice at various clubs, making things confusing at times.

Events below were all held at Nice and are listed by title:

Northern Chmpionships

Venue: Usually held at Manchester or Liverpool. Nicknamed "the Wimbledon of the North". Not to be confused with the North of England Chmps.

The “Northern Tournament”, officially known as the Northern Lawn Tennis Association Tournament, was first held in 1880; in that year and in the following year it was held in Manchester. There was no women’s singles event at the tournament in its first two years. In 1882, a women’s singles event was inaugurated and the tournament was held in Liverpool for the first time. In subsequent years it would be held alternately in Manchester and Liverpool. The actual venues were the Liverpool Cricket Ground in Aigburth, a suburb of Liverpool; and the Old Trafford Ground in Manchester.

A Challenge Round was in force from 1885 to 1905. An asterisk (*) after the score indicates that the defending champion did not take part in that particular year. In such cases the result of the All-Comers' Final is given.

From 1929 until 1939, a tournament was held in both Liverpool and Manchester. After World War Two, a single “Northern Tournament” was held in Manchester for several years.

The event saw a revival as a Wimbledon warmup event after World War II-8 Northern Champions also winning Wimbledon. As the French Open and tour events crowded the calendar in the mid 1970s the event declined. Men's events lasted until 2009.

*In 1910 due to rain at Liverpool, the final was played at Edgbaston later in the season.
*In 1964 the event was cancelled at the semifianl stage due to rain. Bueno, Moffitt, Caldwell, and Richey were in the semis. The 4 semifinalists refuse to play on a wet court after Truman slips and injures herself in the quarters. The event was then cancelled.




Thanks to Mark Ryan for the bulk of the information on this event up to 1930.
