1925 results

Status:
Many finals in good date order. Results from Little's book on Lenglen need to be added.


Summary:

Lenglen returned to Wimbledon triumph, winning her sixth title (and last). She lost 5 games in five matches and defeated Ryan, Goldsack, Beamish, McKane (last years champion by 60 60) and Fry. Before her Wimbledon title Lenglen wins the first French "Open" over McKane in the final, the championships were the first which was open to foreigners. Wills dominated in the USA winning 7 titles including the USA Championships defeating McKane in the final. Only Elizabeth Ryan defeated Wills during the year (final of Seabright). England returned to the USA to defend the Wightman Cup and won 4-3 due to McKane's win over Mallory and Lambert Chambers playing brilliantly to defeat Goss. Also Daphne Akhurst won her first Australian title (her name would adorn the trophy given to the womens Australian Champions now). This was also the first year Australian women conducted a private seperate tour of Europe and the USA.

FI: Maclaren/Anderson Melody d. ??

Nicknamed "The wet championships", torrential rain delayed the opening day from Dec 26 to the 27th, and almost every day saw precipitation.

Defending champion Spiers is shocked early in the 2R. May often drove the ball wildly out, even when she had an open court.

The 50 game doubles match in the 1r was watched with considerable interest.

The Stanley Street Courts had 9 grass courts, with enlarged seating for 1,500.

Draw notes:

Papers also call the event the Dominion Championships.

Results taken from Papers Past. There is no error in listing two MC Campbells (from Whangerie)-were they twins or sisters? There are also two Miss Macfarlanes, Marjorie and Marion.

-------------------------------------------------

Draw notes:

The Mrs Harper who partners M Holt in the doubles is not Sylvia Lance Harper, who partners Akhurst.
Sylvia Lance has married since last year's event, She is now Mrs RR Harper.
-------------------------------------------------

Summary:

Akhurst won her 1st Australasian title at the age of 21. She struggled past Wilson in an early round, a rival from her school days but her fitness, speed around the court, hard and low hitting as well as willingness to attack the net earned her an easy passage to the final after that. Esne Boyd struggled in her quarterfinal against Marjorie Cox (later to become Mrs. Jack Crawford) falling behind 3-5 in the 3rd, but winning the final set 9-7. Boyd then handled Sylvia Harper's (Lance) cut shots with ease in the semis, 6-2 6-3 to face Akhurst in the final.

Boyd's game plan was clear from the first point, to attack at all costs. She did it brilliantly in the first set, hitting deep to the corners and coming to the net to smash away Akhurst's lobs. 6-1 to Boyd. She relaxed ever so slightly in the 2nd and Akhurst's superior strength, technique and in the end of a close set, her temperament gave her an 8-6 advantage to level the match.

A tiring Boyd fought hard to reach 4-1 in the decider, but Akhurst steadied and took the final five games.

In an early round match Meaney upset Le Messurier. Kath recovered from 1-4 down in the final set and had a match point, but Meaney's ball, carried by the wind, hit smack on the line.
