FI Magda Rurac (Rom) d. Ann Gray 6-3 6-3

DF Barry/Rurac d. Ausness/Estes 3-6 6-0 6-0

A minor event, Magda still impresses because this is her 5th straight tournament won. A "packed gallery" watches Rurac "slash her forehand" then chip the backhand away to the opposite end. Magda only lost 14 games out of 64.

FI Brough/duPont d Hart/Fry 6-2 6-4

Hart shocks DuPont-it is Margaret's worst scoreline in memory-prompting many to question if the 31 year-old is "past it".The NYT reported that "the big gallery sat in amazement at [duPont's]downfall, noting Margaret "made more errors than is her wont."Beating both Brough AND Dupont is still too much for Hart though-who falls to Brough in the final. This was Doris' first event after an eye condition that has kept her sidelined for months.

A sprained back prevented Magda from doing herself justice in the singles.

*Loeck is from San Francisco. This is her first time on the Eastern Grass circuit.

It's Maidstone in reverse, with Doris beating Brough but losing to DuPont. No one has beaten BOTH Brough and Dupont in the same event since Pauline Betz! Doris won the semi after a two hour drizzle held up play. Sawdust was on the spaces behind the baselines to prevent falls. The English Wightman Cup contingent arrives by boat the day before. The exhausted Brits all default in singles, worn out by a rough passage on the Coronia. Brutal heat soared over 100 degrees F two days in a row. Brit Molly Blair collapses from the heat in a doubles on the second day of the event.
Rain sogs the courts beofre the semis; officals put down sawdust to prevent falls.

Final
Louise Brough/Eric Sturgess d Margaret duPont/Bill Talbert 4-6 6-3 7-5


Margaret gained a measure of revenge against naysayers predicting a Brough or Hart victory, aided by the fact that both were on the other side of the draw. It was a letdown final for those hoping Doris would finally break through and win a major. The match "scarcely drew a ripple of applause" from the gallery. 20 out of 27 points Dupont won in set two were from Hart's errors. The youngest entrant out of the field of 57 was 14 year old Maureen Connolly. However, more fans came out to see pretty blonde Laura Lou Jahn, who had a crowd four deep around a field court. Connolly and Jahn are expected to be future champs.


NBC affiliate WNBT has TV broadcasts from Forest Hills on Sept 3-5 from 2 to 5PM (could be other days as well).

Re: 1949 Results Thread

Week of September 5-11


September 9-10 Wightman Cup, Merion, Penn, US (Grass)
Venue: Merion Cricket Club.

United States d Great Britain 7-0

September 9

Doris Hart d Jean Walker-Smith (GB) 6-3 6-1
Margaret Osborne DuPont d. Betty Hilton (GB) 6-1 6-3
Shirley Fry-Hart d Molly Blair/Jean Quertier (GB) 6-1 6-2

Already underdogs, the Brits are bothered by a heavy wind. under pressure from the harder hitting Americans, their lobs fly long or sit up begging to be killed. Hilton, a recent semifinalist at Forest Hills, is particularly dissapointing.

September 10

Doris Hart d Betty Hilton (GB) 6-1 6-3
Margaret duPont d Jean Walker-Smith (GB) 6-4 6-2
Beverly Baker d Jean Quertier (GB) 6-4 7-5
Gussy Moran/Pat Todd d Betty Hilton/Kay Tuckey (GB) 6-4 8-6

Brough doesn't play because of an injured right hand. The venue is perhaps an indication that interest in the Cup is waning, as this is the first Wightman Cup in the US not contested at Forest Hills. A capacity crowd of 1,500 sees the second days play. Britain comes close to winning a set when Quertier leads 5-2 in the second, but Baker comes back. The ned result is anothe rpredicatable US blowout.

*Dunlop's gives dates as August 10-11!!!
