Re: 1949 Results Thread

A silly question, but I'm wondering why you didn't reformat/correct Ugarte's results before entering them in the actual thread? That would surely have saved you some time.

I've tried a copy and pasting all the results before in word. The problem is after copying the format doesn't convert well.

Another advantage is I'm going over all the results in the New York Times as I convert. This allows me to compare, double check, and where the NYT had additional info, add results.

It might be slower. It also looks strange while I'm converting. Once it's converted though I hope the end results is a good one.


I added in results from the Wimbledon Plate event. All the singles and doubles results (excluding mixed) from the Grand Slams have been added.

MCC Tournament

The MCC Tournament was played on the club's grass courts.

The softness of the courts after rain, was blamed for the losses of Frank Sedgman and others in 1949.

The Launceston Examiner says 'Mrs Bolton played poorly'. The Melbourne Argus said 'Mrs Bolton failed badly. Miss Toomey had such poor opposition that she hardly

received credit for the excellent tennis she played.'
