1891 Results

Many thanks to Newmark, Elegos, Brian Stewart and Rollo for their contributions to this thread. We also wish to thank Gee Tee for the Aussie results.

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 - ACF).

April

April 6-11, British Covered Court Championships, London, England (Indoors on Wood)
Venue: Queen's Club

April 6-11, Covered Court Tournament, Queen's Club, London, England (Wood)

Singles (Draw=2, plus holder)


FI: Maud Shackle d. J. Wray 7-5, 6-2

CR: Maud Shackle d. May Jacks (holder) 7-5 6-3

From "Pastime", April 15, 1891: "Miss Jacks and Miss Shackle are old opponents, the matches between them usually being very close, the former having, however, the majority of victories. On this occasion Miss Shackle turned the tables, and after losing the first four games, won by two sets to love.

"Both played from the baseline (as ladies usually do), and as their returns were very safe, and the length good, long rallies were of frequent occurrence. At first Miss Jacks quite held her own in these, but Miss Shackle, who played persistently to her opponent's backhand, gradually gained the mastery, and at the finish was playing much better than Miss Jacks, who was not in such good condition as usual."

Draw note:

Emma (nee Leavitt) Morgan listed as Mrs W Fellowes Morgan

The women’s singles final was played over the best of five sets from this year for a number of years. This year Mabel Cahill became the first overseas winner of a singles title at the US Championships.

If contestants were tied at 5 games all the next game decided the set. Finals were an exception to this rule. In the ladies doubles final the middle set was decided by an 8-6 score, and the second set of the singles final went to 7-5.

"A great crowd" watched the final match, "which was splendidly fought from start to finish, and every stroke was liberally applauded". Cahill attacked on her forehand with a "Lawford"-like stroke. (Lawford was a male champ who used a big topspin forehand).

MX: May Langrishe/Harry Barlow d. Blanche Hillyard/???? 2-6 6-4 9-7

From "Pastime", September 16, 1891: "The challenger seemed somewhat nervous at starting, and, though hitting fairly hard, was less accurate than usual, while Miss Langrishe sent in return after return of such good length and pace as to keep her occupied principally in defence. Most of the games were close but Miss Langrishe always managed to hold the lead after '2-all' had been called, and won at 6-2.

"In the next set Miss Langrishe still maintained her lead, principally by playing to her opponent's backhand, and reached 5-3. Subsequently she got within two strokes of the match, which she seemed to have fairly in hand, but at this point Mrs Hillyard commenced to play with that extreme steadiness and pluck which she always displays at critical times, and, after bringing the score to games all, not without a terrific struggle, won the 'vantage game to 15 and the next to love. This reverse seemed to discourage the holder somewhat, for she played comparatively carelessly in the deciding set, and made many mistakes. Mrs Hillyard's accuracy, on the other hand, increased, and her length was wonderfully good. This was sufficient to turn the scale entirely in her favour and she won a love set."

Draw note:
Constance Smith is referred to in contemporary sports papers as Mrs C.J. Smith

In 1891, for the first time, there was a non-handicap women's singles event at the Boulogne-sur-Mer tournament. Only four women entered, three of whom were sisters.

This was the sixth edition of this tournament. This year a Challenge Cup was offered for the women’s singles event for the first time.

Re: 1891 Results

December


December 29-31 New Zealand Championships, Napier, New Zealand
Venue: Farndon Park

1R: Constance Abraham d Isabel Rees 5-6 ?-? 6-5
1R: E Harman d Hilda Hitchins in staight sets
1R: Nina Douslin-bye

SF: Mrs Abraham-bye
SF: Douslin d Harman 6-5 5-6 6-5

FI: Nina Douslin d Constance Abraham 3-6 6-2 7-5

Doubles

1R: Nina Douslin/Hilda Hitchins d Constance Abraham/G Cotterill ????

FI: E Harman/Isabel Rees d Nina Douslin/Hilda Hitchins 7-5 6-3

Note that Isabel Rees is often listed as J Rees.

The grounds at Farndon Park consist of ten courts. The event started on a Tuesday, December 29 and ended on Thursday December 31.

Papers Past indicates that Misses Harman and Rees hailed from Canterbury, Mrs Abraham from Wellington, and Miss Douslin from Blenheim. Mrs Abraham recently came to New Zealand from England and plays "a nice, graceful, all-around game". Though playing chiefly from the backcourt, she is superior to the other Kiwis in being able to volley and hit through her backhand rather than "scoop" it. miss Harman "is decidedly weak at backhanders", while Douslin was vastly improved from 1891, playing "with great coolness and steadiness." Rees was the hardest hitter, wailing away on her forehand. A weak backhand was her undoing however.

Abraham survives 2 match points at 15-40 at 5 all in the third vs Rees. A large crowd saw "one of the most exciting matches ever played at Farndon". Match points galor also take place in the Douslin-Harman match, with deuce and vantahe being called repeatedly ni the last game at 5 apiece.

Crowds were estimated at 200 for day 1, 300 for day 2, and 400 for the final day. Heat and wind kept many away the first two days.

The score was one set apiece when Miss Douslin took 4 games running for the championship.The mixed doubles was actually called "Combined Doubles". The event appears to have been handicapped.

This event often listed as the 1891/92 championships.
