1901 results

1901

Status: Mostly finals, in approximate date order.

1901 British-Irish Classifications (source: Lawn Tennis for Ladies, by Lambert Chambers)

01. Charlotte Cooper Sterry (GBR)
2-3. Blanche Bingley Hillyard (GBR)
2-3 Louise Martin (IRL)
04. Dorothea Douglass (GBR)
5-8. Ruth Dyas Durlacher (IRL)
5-8 Edith Austin Greville (GBR)
5-8 Alice Simpson Pickering (GBR)
5-8 Muriel Robb (GBR)

Dorothea Douglass competes in 10 open singles events. She won four events, including Beckenham, the North London Chmps, the Essex Chmps (at Colchester) and the Yorkshire Association event. (*Note that Alan little did not include Ealing. If we can confirm Ealing was a full blown event Douglass would have won 5 of 11 events in 1901). 3 of Dorothea's six losses were to newly married Charlotte Copper Sterry. Sterry takes her 4th Wimbledon title over her older rival Blanche Hillyard.

Married, on 12 January, Charlotte Cooper, to fellow player Alfred Sterry.

MX: Blanche Hillyard (GB)/George Hillyard (GB) d. Antonie Popp (Ger)/Reggie Doherty (GB) 6-2 6-1

From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", April 3, 1901: "The Monte Carlo tournament followed on that of Cannes immediately, and began on Friday, March 8. There are only two courts here, and as the playing hours are from ten to midday and from two till five, it is obvious that only a restricted number of ties can be played off each day.

"As mentioned before, the courts here have been improved, and particularly the background behind the players has now been made suitable, by means of green curtains, which also help to keep off the wind and dust. The nature of the soil here is, however, different from that at Cannes and Nice, and the courts are harder and more gravelly, which causes a different bound of the ball."

Final
J. Atkinson/McAteer d. M.Jones/Moore default
------------------------------
Bessie Moore survived two grueling matches to win the national title. In the final she fought back from two sets down and match point at 6-7 to defeat Jones. In the 5th set both women were exhausted to the point of leaning on their racquets. After 58 games Moore had passed her first trial. It was on to the Challenge Round to face defending champ McAteer.

Normally Bessie would have have no problems with McAteer, but the long semi had drained her of energy. "With general humidity out in full force" for the Challenge round. Though "taxed to the upmost", Moore prevailed after 47 games. Utterly spent by playing 105 games in two matches, she defaulted the doubles final. Concerns over the ladies health prompted the USTA to ban 3 of 5 set finals soon after, despite the wishes of most of the women.

Draw notes:

Defender Blanche Hilyard "sits" until Challenge Round final. Ladies singles began June 26.

The Wimbledon site uses Hughes D'Eath (and not Hughes D'Aeth). Geneology records are consistent in using D'Aeth. The London Times also uses D'Aeth.

The "Mme Popp" on the Wimbledon site is in fact Toni Popp of Germany.

Countess Clara Von Schulenberg entered under her pseudonym of 'Adams'.

Thanks to Elegos, LKK, and Newmark for helping to solve the identity of 'Adams'


From "Lawn Tennis and Croquet", July 3, 1901:

"'Miss Adams', a visitor from the Continent, is a steady baseline player with some volleying power, good backhand and forehand drives and considerable mastery of the ball. Unfortunately she had the most uninteresting draw [at Wimbledon] - a walkover and two very easy ties before she met Mrs Sterry."

From the same edition of "Lawn Tennis and Croquet":

"'Miss Adams' has never before played on grass courts, and was not quite at home with their slowness compared with the very fast courts she is acquainted to. She hails from the Continent, where she is by far the best lady player."


Although neither the women's doubles nor the mixed doubles event had championship status, this was the first time one player, Charlotte Sterry, had ever won all three events at Wimbledon in the same year.
