Lillian Scott (b 1869) married Cecil P Hungerford in 1889

Summary:

"The ladies' play was also exceptionally good. Miss Scott defeated Miss Mayne after an excellent match. Miss Scott had some beautiful forehand strokes, driving with great force, while her backhand strokes were safe, though not brilliant."

At this point in time there was a Challenge Round in the women's doubles and mixed doubles events at this tournament. Dudley Webb had won the mixed doubles event in 1887 with C. Greene. They did not defend in 1888 due to her absence.

FI: Ellen Roosevelt/Grace Roosevelt d. Adeline Robinson/Vera Ward 3-6 6-3 6-4

Draw note:

Harris listed as Mrs. Alan Harris

Summary:

Called the "third annual" event in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Bertha (the paper also calls her "Bertie") Townsend repels the New York invasion by downing the New Yorker Robinson in an exciting contest. After barely winning the second set at 6-5 a partisan crowd cheers her on to victory over a tiring opponent.

Sources indicate this was the first USTA sanctioned national women's title. The USTA later retroactively recognized the 1887 event.

There was also a doubles event played in 1888, but the USTA must not have made that official until 1889, for that year is listed as the first.

Unique features that are odd to our "modern" eyes are the 6-5 set scores and byes after the first round. Standard scoring of winning by 2 games and byes in round 1 only were still a couple of years away.

This was the first open women’s singles event at this tournament, which began in 1886. A Challenge Round was in force in the women’s singles event from 1889 until 1910. Note the cute pseudonym employed by the male mixed doubles finalist.

-----

June 12-16, Welsh Championships, Penarth, Wales (Grass)

Draw=2

FI: Blanche Hillyard d. Miss Pope 6-2 6-3

This year only two women entered the open women’s singles event. Maud Watson, the defending champion, was injured and could not take part in the tournament.

From "Pastime", June 20, 1888: "The ladies of South Wales have apparently not taken kindly to lawn tennis, which is somewhat surprising, seeing that many of the Welshmen play a good game. The ladies' events at Penarth were therefore almost a failure, as with the exception of Miss Pope, the Bath lady champion, Blanche Hillyard could comfortably have given any other lady competitor about half-forty.

"A private match appeared to interest the spectators even more than the ordinary contests. It was between Mrs Hillyard and Ernest Renshaw, who gave the very long start of half-40. The game took place on the asphalt court, and Mrs Hillyard, with the sun at her back, easily won the first set at 6-0. The second, Renshaw, from the best court, won at 6-2, and then, changing ends every game, Mrs Hillyard reached 5-1. After this she was twelve times within one stroke of winning the set, but failed to gain it, and Renshaw won at 9-7.

"The result of this match between Mrs Hillyard and Ernest Renshaw demonstrates how immensely superior the play of the men is to that of the ladies, although to the ordinary spectator who may be watching matches confined to either sex the disparity does not fully reveal itself. William Renshaw could undoubtedly beat Miss Lottie Dod at a difference of 30, and could probably give any other lady half 30 and a beating."

This event was handicap only this year.

From the "Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1889): "Nearly two months of the present lawn tennis season had passed away before it was announced for certain that the tournament at Leamington would not fall through, as had been generally believed. It would indeed have been a pity to have allowed an old-established fixture like this to be abandoned, more especially as fair entries had always been obtained, and the challenge cup had been only in the possession of the present holder, Mr James Dwight, for one year.

" Luckily, the Town Improvement Association took the tournament in hand, and being backed up by a very strong committee, assisted by Mr Blaker and Mr Downing as honorary secretaries, everything proceeded well for a successful meeting. A programme of three level event and four handicaps was arranged, and these all received a capital entry, not only in numbers, but also in quality..."

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1889): "The fourth annual tournament of the above county association was held at Newcastle-on-Tyne, on the new Constabulary Cricket Ground, on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of last week. The first three days the weather was of the most enjoyable description, but on the fourth was disastrous to a successful termination of the meeting, a steady downpour of rain falling from ten o'clock in the morning until seven o'clock. After a consultation between the stewards and the players it was decided, in order to meet the convenience of the latter, to play off the finals of the single championships in the covered court in Saint George's Drill Hall, the use of which was kindly granted by Colonel Dowling.

"The finals of the gentlemen's doubles, the handicaps and the county events were played in Portland Park on Wednesday. Reverting to the first three days' play, it must be noted that the courts, nine in number, were, considering the heavy rains of the previous three weeks, in good order and seemed to improve as the week wore on. A capital entry for the different events had been received..."

[August 13]

Exhibition handicap singles match played at Exmouth:

Ernest Renshaw (owes 30) d. Lottie Dod 2-6 7-5 7-5

Two exhibition matches were played on Monday, August 13, 1888 on the Exmouth Ground, just after the end of the tournament.

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1888): "During the progress of the open tournament during the present week several attempts were made to arrange two matches, one beween Mr Ernest Renshaw and Miss Lottie Dod, the champion giving 30 to the lady champion, and the other a ladies' and gentlemen's double - Mr Ernest Renshaw and Miss Lottie Dod against Mr Ernest Lewis and Mrs Blanche Hillayrd. The players all being at liberty on the Monday following the tournament Major Bridge and the committee kindly allowed the matches to played off on their ground.

"Although it was impossible to give much notice, it soon got bruited about that the 'crack' players were going to contest some matches, and the attendance at the Exmouth Ground was an extremely good one. Indeed, over £15.00 was taken at the gate, and this amount was handed over to the Exmouth Dispensary, a local charity.

"Miss Dod commenced playing a very strong game against Mr Renshaw, and won the opening set, only losing two games. The champion did better in the second set, and the score was called five games to two in his favour, but Miss Dod, by some fine play, took the next three games, and so caused an advantage set to be played. She also stood at 40 to 15 in the eleventh game, but Mr Renshaw won that and also the twelfth without losing an ace, and so won the set by seven games to five.

"The third set was well contested all through, two, three, four and five games all being called. In the eleventh game the score was called 40 to love, Miss Dod wins, but then Mr Renshaw made five aces consecutively, and also won the next game after it had been twice at deuce, this giving him the set and match. [Final score 2-6, 7-5, 7-5]

"In the double match Mr Renshaw and Miss Dod secured five games out of the first six, but the next three in succession were all taken by Mrs Hillyard, who, however, lost the tenth and so the set by six games to four. Deuce was called in six games out of the ten, showing that the set was well contested.

"After one and two games all had been called in the second set, Mr Renshaw and Miss Dod took three in succession, this bringing the score to five games to two in their favour. A love game - the only one of the match - followed to Mr Lewis and Mrs Hillyard, and that pair also won the next three games, all at deuce, the score then standing at advantage game to them. The twelfth, after being once at deuce, was gained by Mr Renshaw and Miss Dod, and they followed this up by also taking the next two, thus winning the set by eight games to six, and the match by two sets to love." [Final score: 6-4, 8-6]

Was this a sort of comsolation singles match, or even a ladies doubles? Robinson, whom the NYT calls the "lady champion of America", took home a solid silver toilet set as her prize, estimated value $100.

* From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1889): "This match was commenced on Monday afternoon, and when the light put a stop to the play, the score stood at one set all and seven games all. It was then arranged to make the match the best of five sets. On Tuesday morning Miss Bracewell won the first two games, and so the third set, by nine games to seven, and then after one, two and three games all had been called in the fourth set, she took three out of the next four, and so won the set and the match. This being the third year Miss Bracewell has won the diamond bracelet given by Lord Londesborough, it now becomes her property. [...]

"Given fine weather, the Scarborough meeting under notice would have been a most remarkable and wonderful one; even as it was, everything passed off most successfully. Almost every day some rain fell, so it was not until the following Tuesday that the matches were all brought to a conclusion. [...] The honorary secretary, Mr Hope, worked hard all and every day to keep things moving, and it was certainly most lucky that the North of England Club had such a number of good courts to make use of, or the bad weather might have caused the tournament to have extended over the fortnight.

"Colonel and Mrs Steeble held an 'at home' every afternoon during the week in the pavilion on the ground, and these were greatly appreciated. The prizes - a very fine collection - were presented to the winners by Mrs Steeble."

An all-sisters doubles final.

The courts were in capital order, and the weather on the first two days was all that could be desired, but the final ties on Thursday were greatly affected by the rain."

Re: 1888 results

Rollo, weren't you going to have tournament results posted in the "Tournament Results" page? I see Ugarte is up to two years now, and here you are. Understand the interest, I just don't like to see nothing but tournament result stats supplanting conversation about the players, which was my understanding of what the Blast was for. I don't mean to complain, it's your call obviously. Thanks for understanding.

Hi Jeff

I thought all of them had been moved. This must have fallen through the cracks.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I'll move it after I add Mark's results. I was excited to see Mark has full results for Edgbaston.

Re: 1888 results

July 16-19, Leamington, Warwickshire, England (Grass)

FI: Alice Pickering d. Mrs Christie 4-6, 6-1, 6-2*

* This event was handicap only this year.
--

From the "Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1889): "Nearly two months of the present lawn tennis season had passed away before it was announced for certain that the tournament at Leamington would not fall through, as had been generally believed. It would indeed have been a pity to have allowed an old-established fixture like this to be abandoned, more especially as fair entries had always been obtained, and the challenge cup had been only in the possession of the present holder, Mr James Dwight, for one year.

" Luckily, the Town Improvement Association took the tournament in hand, and being backed up by a very strong committee, assisted by Mr Blaker and Mr Downing as honorary secretaries, everything proceeded well for a successful meeting. A programme of three level event and four handicaps was arranged, and these all received a capital entry, not only in numbers, but also in quality..."
