1886

January through June


Many thanks to Elegos and Newmark for their contributions to this thread.


CR=Challenge Round. Under the challenge round system the previous year's winner, the holder of the title, "sat out" until the challenger won the final (often called the All-Comers Final).
-----------------------------------------------------------------

May 6-15, New South Wales Championships, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia (Grass)

R1: Annie Lamb d. Miss Andrews 6-0 6-2
R1: Eva Rodd d. Beatrice Metcalfe 6-4 6-4

R2: Lamb d Rodd 7-5 6-3
R2: Zilla Scott d Beaumont 6-1 6-0
R2: Eliza Fitzgerald d McLean 6-4 6-3
R2: C Green d H Beaumont 6-0 6-0

SF: Lamb d Scott 6-4 6-3
SF: Green d Fitzgerald 6-3 6-1

FI: Greene d Lamb 63 62

CR: C. Greene d. Annie Lamb (holder) 6-2

Only one set appears to have been required to win in the ladies singles final.

The match, which took an hour, was thoroughly well contested and watched with great interest by a large concourse of onlookers. Miss Green played a clever game in which her superior powers of 'cutting' and 'serving' stood her in good stead. Miss Lamb was as able an exponent of volleying for a lady as one could wish to see, while Miss Green's cutting from the base lines was very fast and accurate.

An analysis of games and strokes gives Miss Greene 6 games and 37 strokes to Miss Lamb's 3 games and 28 strokes in the first set, and 6 games and 34 strokes to Lamb's 2 games and 21 strokes in the second set."

From the “Irish Times”, 20 May 1886 (originally posted by Mark)

“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.”

We could change it IMO. Perhaps we could ask Gee Tee to double check it to make certain, change the score, and then note that another person (Newmark in this case) has a different score.

"Louise" Martin should, of course, be Louisa Martin (see Cheltenham tournament).

Cheers. I see her full name is Hilda Maude Hitchings.

Interesting to read that she was born with only one arm (the left) and "She serves in a wonderfully clever manner by holding her racket with three fingers of her only hand, and a slight toss of the ball which is held by the remaining finger and thumb, followed by a quick twisty tap with the racket, results in a fast low service which is anything but easy to take."

She was unusually tall (5' 11) and had a sister Una who also played in NZ. Hilda lived in London from the 1897 to 1906 and had some tournament play. Apparently around August 1904 she won the Ladies' Silver Challenge Cup of the St Quintin Lawn Tennis Club, decisively beating Miss Pocock.

Her first tournament in England was the Chichester tournament in 1897 where she was defeated in the handicap singles.

She was also a fine singer, pianist and painter as well as being talented at needlework, making all her own dresses.

ETA: I've also found that Miss Lance is Sarah Mary Lance, who was born and apparently played in English tournaments before coming to NZ. She married cricketer Edgar Tanner in 1887 and played as Mrs Tanner in tournaments through until the 1890s.

Re: 1886 results

July 26-28, Leamington, Warwickshire, England (Grass)

XDF: Charles Ross/Mrs Hornby d. Thomas Mellersh/Gertrude Mellersh 6-2, 6-3

There was no non-handicap women's single event at this tournament in the early years (circa 1881-1890).
--

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1887): "The Jephson Gardens, as they always do, looked most beautiful, but the turf was not in the best condition for lawn tennis, the heavy rain of the few previous days having thoroughly soaked the ground. The lawns, too, are slightly on the slope, but we hear that by next year the committee have every intention of making them level.

"The attendance was fairly good on each day, and it is to be hoped that this year the meeting has not been a loss. The prizes looked well up to their advertised value, and this year arrangements had been made that the winning competitors might change them up to their full value at the shops at which they were bought. The weather on all three days was fine, though at one time on Tuesday there was every prospect of a heavy storm..."
