Louisa Martin's record at the Irish Championships (1885-1908)

By Mark Ryan


Mary Louisa Martin, known as Louisa, was born on 3 September 1865 in Newtowngore, County Leitrim, Ireland. Virtually nothing is known about her early life. However, there is no doubt concerning her talent as a tennis player, which was exceptional. The only surprising thing about her tournament record is that she never took the ladies’ singles title at Wimbledon. However, she played the singles event there only four times, losing in the All-Comers’ Final to Charlotte Cooper (Sterry) on three occasions. At the Irish Championships in Dublin, Louisa beat Charlotte three out of the four times they played each other in the singles event.

More than one source states that Louisa suffered from nerves on the biggest occasions, but this did not apply to her at the Irish Championships. She entered the singles event in Dublin fifteen times between 1885, her debut year, and 1908, the last year she entered the tournament. During that period she won the singles title nine times, was runner-up three times and lost in the semi-final an additional three times. Although the draws were much smaller in those days than they are today, this is a remarkable record at what was then a very prestigious tournament. Louisa took an additional twelve titles at the same tournament – nine in the ladies’ doubles (it was a “handicap” event only in 1908) and three in the mixed doubles.

With few exceptions it has been possible to find the results of every singles match Louisa played in the three main events open to women at the Irish Championships. I have also included, when available, the result of the last match she played in the ladies’ doubles and mixed doubles events in the years in which she entered them.

The “Irish Times” newspaper covered the tournament in detail at the time and I have reproduced reports of almost all of the twelve singles finals in which Louisa Martin played. In addition, there is a report on Louisa’s quarter-final singles match against Lottie Dod at the 1892 tournament. Lottie Dod was considered more or less invincible at the time, but Louisa still beat her.

As the draws were so small, a first round match was often also a last 16 or quarter-final match. When the first singles match Louisa played was a quarter-final (or a semi-final), it is indicated as FR. Otherwise, QF = quarter-final; SF = semi-final; F = final. Players are Irish unless otherwise indicated.

From the “Irish Times”, 20 May 1886

“It was a pity that the two best matches of the afternoon – the Ladies’ Championship and the Gentlemen’s Championship – should have to be played off simultaneously, but from one cause or another the arrangement was unavoidable, and so spectators had to divide their attention between the two contests. The opponents in the ladies’ game were Miss May Langrishe, an ex-holder of the championship, and Miss Martin, who it will be remembered gained a very ready victory over her rival of Saturday at last year’s tournament. Mindful of the improvements displayed by Miss Langrishe in her previous matches during the week, many were led to anticipate a close match, but no one was prepared for the clever victory achieved by the lady named.

“It was quite evident she held the winning card throughout the first set, in which she only allowed her opponent the second, fourth and seventh games, but Miss Martin showed up so well in the early part of the second set that at one time it seemed certain the three sets would have to be exhausted to decide this match. Miss Langrishe won the first game, but Miss Martin then rattling off four in succession, amongst them one love game, the score was called ‘4 games to 1, Miss Martin leads’. However, Miss Langrishe, playing in irresistible fashion, clean outplayed her opponent at every point, and with a sequence of five games, ran out the set by 6 to 4. Included in the winner’s scores were two love games.

“Miss Langrishe played better than ever she has done before, and her victory is more attributable to this than to the slight falling away perceptible in Miss Martin’s game. Her returns were very severe, and besides placing them beautifully along the sidelines, she invariably kept them to her opponent’s backhand. Miss Martin’s returns, on the contrary, lacked much of their usual strength, but at times she showed quite up to her best form.”

SF Lottie Dod (GB) d. Louisa Martin 6-3, 6-0

Doubles event

Mixed doubles event
QF Ernest Renshaw (GB)/Lottie Dod (GB) d. Willoughby Hamilton/L. Martin 6-3, 7-5

From the “Irish Times”, 26 May 1887

“Judging by the exceptionally brilliant form shown by Miss Martin in all her practice matches this season, those best able to form an opinion looked forward to her, if not winning the ladies’ singles right out, certainly getting into the final round, but her match with Miss Dod ended in an easy win for the English lady, Miss Martin getting but three games in the match. It cannot be denied that Miss Martin does not play up to her true form in public and several of her strokes were much affected by her nervousness, which was a noticeable feature throughout her game. Miss Dod, on the other hand, was as cool as possible, and the sureness and severity of her strokes frequently brought forth rounds of applause. The winner has improved vastly since last year, especially in her backhand stroke, which, though not severe, is nevertheless a very telling one. Miss Martin took the first two games, but from that to the finish she got only one more game. Miss Dod took the third, fourth and fifth games to 15, 30 and 30, her opponent taking the sixth game to deuce, when three games won by Miss Dod to 30, deuce and 15, won her the set. The second set was won to love. The first two games were close enough, being won to deuce; but in the last four games the winner only lost three strokes.”

Mixed doubles event
FR Harold Mahony/Florence Stanuell d. T.S. Campion/L. Martin [score not known]

From the “Irish Times”, 27 May 1889

“In the ladies’ singles the Irish lady added another trophy to the list already retained by the Irish players. The final match was between Miss Martin and Mrs Hillyard, and was started at 12 o’clock in court 5, and ended, as appears in the annexed details, by two sets to love in favour of Miss Martin. The Irish lady led off by winning the first game to 15, but after this Mrs Hillyard got five consecutive games, when the set seemed at her mercy. However, Miss Martin again woke up, and playing with marvellous strength, she won six games off the reel, and thus took the set to five games. This upset put Mrs Hillyard very much about, and her temper getting the better of her, she simply chucked the second set after the first game; and Miss Martin winning it to love, she won the match amidst great applause.”

From the “Irish Times”, 31 May 1890

“The final match of the Ladies’ Championship Singles was started on court 5 just before the last match was over. Miss Rice started by winning the first game to love, but Miss Martin, who got accustomed to the wind, followed with the second. The third and fourth were taken by her opponent, the fourth being a love game. Alternate games were played, until the score stood 4-3, Miss Rice leads; but Miss Martin took the eighth and ninth, and Miss Rice the following two. The twelfth was a love game to Miss Martin, and she also took the following one, Miss Rice the fourteenth, but the next two falling to Miss Martin, she won the set to 7, 9-7.

“In the second set Miss Martin played up better, but Miss Rice, on the contrary, went to pieces. She won the first game, but Miss Martin taking the next two, it was seen that she was going to win. After the fourth game, which was a win for Miss Rice, she failed to score until Miss Martin was two games ahead, when she played up better, and won the seventh game. Alternate games having been won, Miss Martin got the tenth game and the match.”

From the “Irish Times”, 2 June 1891

“The final match in the Ladies’ Singles was played on Court 4 between Miss Martin and Miss Stanuell and, as anticipated, it ended in a win for the former by 2 sets to 1. Miss Martin won the first game to 15, and then Miss Stanuell made it one game-all by taking the second game to 30. Miss Martin now got three consecutive games and, after Miss Stanuell had won a game to one [illegible] Miss Martin finished the set by taking the next two games to deuce and 15.

“The second set was much closer, and Miss Stanuell, playing a good game all round, put it to her credit by 7 games to 5; the sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth games being won to deuce several times in each. The aces in the third set were also very close, but Miss Martin winning all six games took a love set, and thus the match and championship.”

The “Irish Times” described the quarter-final match between Louisa Martin and Lottie Dod as “one of the finest ladies’ matches ever played in [Fitzwilliam Square]”. The report went on: “It was looked upon as a [formality] for Miss Dod, but the result was different and it fell to Miss Martin by 2 sets to 1. However, it should be mentioned that the circumstances under which the match was played were against Miss Dod, who seemed unable to get her stroke, owing to the ground being a bit slow [as a consequence of] the many showers which fell both before and during the match. Miss Martin seemed in her best form and [was] driving with exceptional force. She got many aces, her placing was also very accurate and altogether she had the length of the court to an [art].”

Lottie Dod won the first game of the match, Louisa Martin the next two, Lottie the fourth game, and Louisa the next four to take the first set 6-2. In the second set Louisa got the first game, Lottie the second and Louisa the third. According to the “Irish Times”, “… after this Miss Dod got five games off the reel, all being very long ones, making the score set-all. It now looked as if Miss Dod would win the [match after] taking the first game of the third set to love, two aces being won off her service, but she again fell off, and either player scored alternately till ‘five games-all’ was called, when Miss Martin took two consecutive games […] and the match.”

“The final match in the Ladies’ Championship Singles was played between Miss Martin and Miss Cooper, and it ended in a win for the Irish lady, who played a really fine game throughout. She started remarkably well and won the first set to love, her hard and fast volleying telling against her opponent. In the second set, however, Miss Cooper was seen to improve, and, being able to return her opponent’s strong volleys, eventually won the set to 3 games. The third set produced many good rallies, and a better or harder fought out set has not been seen in a ladies’ match, notwithstanding that Miss Cooper got but two games in it.”

From the “Irish Times”, 30 May 1898

“The final round in the ladies’ singles was played between Miss Cooper, who won the event in 1895, and Miss Martin, who has no less than six [five] winning brackets in the same event. The match was keenly contested. The competitors were seen at their best, there being very little to choose between them. Miss Cooper started well by winning the first two games to 30 in each, but dropped the third to love. 3 games to 1, Miss Cooper leads, was next called, but Miss Martin forced the play, 4 games all being called ere Miss Cooper put the set to her credit, the last being a love game off her own service.

“The second set was a long one and sixteen games were played in it. Miss Cooper had a good lead at 5 games to 2, when Miss Martin won 3 games, making the score ‘games all’. Miss Martin served the eleventh game, but lost it to love. However, she won the twelfth to fifteen, deuce games being again called. Miss Cooper for the second time got the advantage game, and again Miss Martin brought the score back to deuce, but only to lose the next two games to 15 and 30, giving the set and match to her opponent.”

From the “Irish Times”, 29 May 1899

“The final match in the Ladies’ Championships Singles found Miss Martin opposed to Mrs Durlacher in Court 3. It ended in a hollow victory for Miss Martin by two sets to love, and by one and two games respectively. In the first set Miss Martin got no less than four love games, and in the three other games played the scores were to deuce, 15 and 30. The second set was a slight improvement on the first, but Miss Martin found little difficulty in putting it to her credit, she losing but two games. The winner is playing in her best form and will take a lot beating should she enter for the English Championships [Wimbledon].”

From the “Irish Times”, 28 May 1900

“This was the final round of the Ladies’ Championship and attracted a good deal of attention. The play was not as interesting as it would have been if the ground was harder, but being in the soft state in which it was, and with the balls so heavy, the ladies found it difficult at times to take each other’s strokes when they came away fast. Miss Martin, to the surprise of everyone, lost the first set very easily, only wining two games. But in the next set she showed that she meant to win, and playing up in her well-known hard style – strong overhead serve and strong, well-directed drives – she won the second set at 6 games to 1. She also rapidly annexed the third and concluding set at 6 games to 2 and thus repeats her performance of last year, and becomes lady champion for 1900.”

From the “Irish Times”, 2 June 1902

“The two ladies to compete in the final round were Miss Martin and Mrs Durlacher. The first four games were won turn about, and it was evident from the start that the match was to be a close one. Both ladies were hitting strongly, and apparently were not much put about by the condition of the ground. After the score had been called 2-all Miss Martin won the next two games to 15 each. Mrs Durlacher got the next to love, but lost the eighth. Miss Martin now led by 5 to 3, but losing the next two, 5-all was called. The eleventh was closely contested, and eventually fell to Miss Martin, after deuce and vantage had been called a couple of times. Mrs Durlacher then ran off the three following and got the set at 8-6.

“The games in the second set were gained almost turn about up to four all, when Miss Martin secured the ninth and tenth to love, leaving the score 1 set-all. Mrs Durlacher won the first two games in the last set, the first after deuce and vantage, and the second to 15. Miss Martin got the third. Then Mrs Durlacher winning the next 3, led by 5 to 1, but lost the seventh off her own service. She was 40-15 in the next, but lost. In the ninth Mrs Durlacher again led 40-30, but failed to secure the winning ace. Miss Martin looked hopelessly out of it, when Mrs Durlacher’s return struck the top of the net and fell short. Miss Martin, however, pulled off the stroke, and from this on played in splendid style, winning the next three games and the set, 7-5.”

Doubles event – Not held

Mixed doubles event – Handicap only

From the “Irish Times”, 8 June 1903

“In the final round of the Ladies’ Championship Miss Martin was opposed to Miss Garfit, and, contrary to expectations, the English lady gave the Irish champion a very good match, which ultimately resulted in a victory for Miss Martin by 2 sets to 1. After losing the first set by 6 to 4, Miss Garfit improved considerably in her play, and some long and interesting rallies took place. Miss Garfit won the second set by 6 games to 4, making the score one set-all.

“She had little chance, however, in the deciding heat, against the strong hitting and beautiful placing of Miss Martin, who only lost one game out of the six played, and thus for another year proved herself the best lady player. It would be interesting to see how Miss Martin would have fared if entered for the All-Comers’ Singles [at Wimbledon], as, judging by her play during the past week, there would have been more than one amongst the competitors to suffer defeat by her.”

From Wikipedia: "He fought in the North-West Rebellion in 1885, was stationed in Egypt from 1888–89, took part in the expedition to Mashonaland in 1890, and fought in the Second Boer War with the Imperial Yeomanry. He was commissioned into the Queen's Own Oxfordshire Hussars in 1895. He was promoted Lieutenant in 1899, Captain in 1901, Major in 1905, and Lieutenant-Colonel in 1918. He fought in Flanders and the Dardanelles during World War I.

"At the 1906 general election, Fiennes was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Banbury and with a brief interruption in 1910, held the seat until the 1918 general election. He was also Parliamentary Private Secretary to Winston Churchill (then First Lord of the Admiralty) from 1912–14. Created a baronet in 1916, Fiennes left the Commons two years later to become Governor of the Seychelles and was then Governor of the Leeward Islands from 1921-29.

"Fiennes died in 1943 and his title was inherited by his son who died the same year. His grandson, the famous explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, inherited the title on his birth in 1944 [he was born a few months after the death of his father, Lieutenant-Colonel Sir Ranulph Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes, 2nd Baronet, who was killed in action during World War II]. Fiennes is also related to the actors Ralph and Joseph Fiennes."

Dodds, Francis (Frank)
Born in 1873 in Australia
Died 11 April 1907 in New Town, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

Australian. From the internet: "Mr Frank Dodds was the second son of the Chief Justice and Lieutenant-Governor, Sir John Dodds, K.C.M.G., and was a native of Tasmania. He was educated at the High School and Christ College, winning the Newcastle scholarship, and taking his A.A. Degree. He matriculated at the University, and then received an appointment as clerk to the Law Department, where he remained till the South African war broke out, when he resigned his position, and retired on his allowance for the purpose of joining the second Australian contingent for the South African war.

"He passed successfully all the tests required, and Lord Hopetoun, who had taken a great liking for him, gave him a personal letter of introduction to Lord Milner, the High Commissioner of South Africa, but the war terminated, and he never had an opportunity of carrying out his intention to assist in defending the flag on the battlefield. He always excelled in outdoor sports. He was captain of his school, and the cricket and football clubs there, and afterwards he became lawn tennis champion, besides winning the champion doubles with his brother, Mr Warren Dodds, and when he took to royal tennis he soon distinguished himself by winning the junior and senior championships.

"When the Duke and Duchess of York visited Tasmania Sir John Dodds was Acting Governor, and Mr Frank Dodds, as ADC to his father, assisted by his brother, distinguished himself by the capable manner in which he carried out the arrangements for their Royal Highnesses and their party. Lord Crichton, ADC, conveyed a message to Sir John, complimenting Mr Frank and Mr Warren Dodds on the able manner in which they discharged the important duties which then devolved upon them. The Duke himself showed his appreciation by presenting him with a handsome gold pin, with his own coat of arms on it, accompanied by a gracious acknowledgment of the services rendered by the young A.D.C.

"Mr. Frank Dodds at other times acted in a similar capacity, besides showing great adaptability for the work when he subsequently became Private Secretary. The deceased had a charming manner and a lovable disposition, and these qualities endeared him to all who met him, either in business or pleasure."

From 1923 he practised as a consulting physician.

"In World War II he was involved in recruiting for the Royal Australian Air Force before joining the merchant navy as a ship's surgeon. His experience of being twelve days adrift in the Indian Ocean, after Nellore was sunk by a Japanese submarine, did not deter him from serving as medical officer in merchant ships until 1960. He died in Sydney on 19 February 1964, survived by three daughters by his wife Jane Drummond Gordon (d. 1942), née Blackmore, whom he had married in Sydney on 29 June 1911."

Wertheim, Rupert Carl
Born 22 December 1893 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Died 11 October 1933 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Australian. From the internet: "Enlisting on 16 June 1915 as a private with the 23rd Battalion A.I.F, Wertheim arrived at Gallipoli just over a month before the end of that fatal campaign before transferring to the 2nd Pioneer Battalion as 2nd lieutenant on 19 March 1916 and took part in the units’ operations at Pozières in July-August where it lost 202 casualties; and at Flers in November.

"In January 1917, he was seconded for duty with the Intelligence Corps and posted to the 2nd Australian Divisional Headquarters; he figured prominently in operations during 1917, in particular Menin Road in September when steps were taken to prepare for the inevitable German counter-attack. Historian C.E.W. Bean wrote: 'to obtain early news of it [the counter-attack], German prisoners as they arrived were taken to forward centres for interrogation, and by 7 a.m. Captain Wertheim…learned from one of them that the counter-attack division for that sector lay at Moorslede and Waterdamhoek, and would probably come up in omnibuses and debouch about 9 or 10 a.m. from the north of Polygon Wood'.

"Largely for the important role he played in the campaign by providing this vital information of the planned counter-attack, Wertheim had the privilege of being mentioned in the personal despatches of the commander-in-chief of the British Army, Sir Douglas Haig on 7 November 1917. In March 1918, three months after the five Australian Divisions were finally unified into an Australian Corps, Wetheim was transferred to Corps Headquarters and took part in the great advances of that year. Three times mentioned in despatches, he returned to Australia in February 1919.

"In civilian life, Wertheim co-founded with Clive Williams a stock and share brokerage firm of Williams & Wertheim (Collins Street, Melbourne) and continued to play tennis until in 1929 he was struck with a debilitating illness that left him bed stricken for two years. Eighteen months before his death he defied doctor’s orders and went about his business affairs until he suddenly collapsed in the city and died at Mount St. Evin’s Hospital, East Melbourne on 11 October 1933 aged 39 survived by his wife Marjorie (née Felsted) and three sons."

Re: Louisa Martin's record at the Irish Championships (1885-1908)

Thanks Mark, for those original newspaper excerpts.

I have some additional info on her, taken from Alan Little's Wimbledon Compendium:
Mary Louisa Martin was born on 3 Sep 1865 in Newtowngore, Leitrim, Ireland, and died on 24 Oct 1941 in Portrush, Antrim, Northern Ireland.

I think she first played Wimbledon in 1892 when she lost in the semis to Blanche Hillyard 1-6 6-3 9-7. I took this info from Wallys Myers' book about Wimbledon, published for its 50th anniversary.
I know modern sources (like Barrett's book) list someone else in her place, but I think Myers could not have made such a great mistake back in the 1920s.

It is a mistery why she has not played Wimbledon more often, she could have won it a couple of times when she was younger. Unfortunately, even tennis historians have forgotten the Irish Championships, which had a Grand Slam status before 1903 (and was much more important, than the US Championships in that period).
But because she has not won Wimbledon, she is completely forgotten today.

Re: Louisa Martin's record at the Irish Championships (1885-1908)

Hi, Karoly,

Thanks for the biographical information on Louisa Martin. I have updated my piece. And yes, Louisa Martin did lose in the semi-final in 1892 to Blanche Hillyard.

Mark

Re: Louisa Martin's record at the Irish Championships (1885-1908)

Some rare biographical information on Louisa Martin:

She was the daughter of George Henry Martin (b. circa 1833), who married Edith Agatha Martin (b. circa 1835). George and Edith both had the same surname at the time of their marriage, which took place on 20 December 1859 in Killeshandra, County Cavan. The counties of Cavan and Leitrim are located beside each other, and Louisa Martin was born in the latter county in 1865.

It appears that Louisa Martin had at least two younger brothers: George Martin, born 18 October 1868 in County Cavan, and Alfred Martin, born 20 October 1871 in Killeshandra,​ County Cavan. Louisa Martin may well also have had some older siblings.
