1892 Results

Thanks to Newmark, Elegos, Gee Tee, Rollo and Brian Stewart for these results and comments

January to March

Circa March 5-19, South Australian Championships, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia (Grass)

SF: Maisie Parr d. Miss Brown 11-2
SF: Mrs. E. Goldsmith d. E Parr 11-7

FI: Maisie Parr d. Mrs E Goldsmith 11-9

Holder Emily Hodge did not defend her title.


"Miss Parr undoubtably owed her victory to her brilliant volleying and could no doubt teach many of the gentlement competitors something in this respect. Goldsmith had three points to equalise at 10-10 but through over confidence lost the game and match."

Mon 11th Apr. Mabel Grant left for Port Elizabeth in the “Hawarden Castle”. (A telegram

received a few days later advised that she had won the tennis doubles. A further wire on 20
th April stated that she had won the Championships. She returned to Durban on 28th April, very
pleased with herself. O that evening Nevill observed a comet “with a bright nucleus and a faint tail”.)

Note that Easter, the traditional date for this event, was on April 17.

At a time when there was no seeding, Louisa Martin met Lottie Dod welll before the final. This was probably Lottie Dod's only loss in singles after 1886. It is not clear which of her two brothers Lottie Dod played the mixed event with, though it was probably Anthony, not William.

Summary:

This was the inaugural mixed doubles event at the US Championships. This year Mabel Cahill became the first player to win the "triple crown" at this, or any, major tournament. 16 year old Bessie Moore of New York is the main challenge to Cahill. Her main weakness, according the New York Times, is "she does not hit the ball hard enough." The Times reports an increase in volleying over the previous year by the ladies, noting that the lob is often employed as a tactic to combat it.

The singles final is hotly contested. When Moore wins the 4th set to tie it the crowd erupts in prolonged applause. "But in the fifth set Miss Cahill was too much for her plucky antagonist...".

SF: Orbell d Tanner default

FI: Isabel Rees d Ruth Orbell 6-4 6-5

Doubles (Draw=3)

Isabel Rees/Mrs Tanner and Miss Gordon/Ruth Orbell defaulted

FI: L Mackerras/Miss Macneil won by default

Mixed doubles was handicap only.

Usually this is considered the 1892/93 Championships. Play was much delayed by rain.

The semifinal between Rees and Douslin drew the biggest and most appreciative crowd of the week. The Otago Witness declaring that both women hit "with masculine power". Rees hard hitting, especially down the line off her backhand, trumped Douslin's steadier play.

"Miss Rees remarkable hard drives will not soon be forgotten by her opponents, and they decidedly won her the championship, for there were other departments in which she was manifestly weak." This was from The Otago Witness, which also reported on the poor weather, suggesting a later date as apossible remedy.

Mrs Tanner (from Napier) became ill en route to the event and withdrew, as did Miss Gordon. As a result
the women's doubles was won by two local women from the Otago Club by default and the singles vastly reduced in scope.

Miss L Mackerras and Ruth Orbell are both from Dunedin.
Rees from Ashburton
