1906 results

Status: Mostly finals, with good date order, except for events at the bottom of this post.

Summary:


Dorothea Douglass dominates in 1906 and takes 10 titles, dropping only 2 sets all year. One of those wins is at Wimbledon, where she romps through a field that includes May Sutton.



Unknown dates

??, Les Avants, Switzerland (Clay)

FI: Aurea Farrington (GB) d. ??

Note she won another Swiss event in the summer as Mrs Edgington. Were the two events close in date? Can this be used to date the time and place of her marriage?

-----

????, Belgian Championships, Brussels (Clay)

FI: Mlle Dufrenoy d. ??

-----

???? Vienna

Doubles

FI: Margit Madarász/Katalin Cséry (Hun) d. Marie Amende/Sidi Maschka (Ast) 1-6 6-4 6-2


Could the location for this actually be Prague (note no women's doubles score) or Budapest?

-----

French Closed Championships, Paris (C)
Katie Gillou Fenwick d McVeagh (GB)

McVeagh was probably a member of a French Club.
-----

??, Danish Outdoor Championships

FI: Sophie Castenschiold d. ??
-----

Chmps of the Engadine, St. Moritz, Switz.
Mlle. Domini Elliadi

Elliadi was later Lady Crosfield.

This tournament had not been held in 1905. Payten defended her doubles title, but illness prevented her from doing so in the singles.

Sydney Morning Herald (13 March 1906)

"Miss Payten (was) but a pale image of her usual self, and to those who know her play it was almost painful to see her reduced by sickness to an absolute inability to run for a ball out of her reach. Still she played a fine game. Fortunately Miss Payten has practically recovered from her sickness, and next year she may win back all her championships."

The 1906 tennis event was a demonstration-only event. All of the participants were from Greece, with the exception of the French husband-and-wife team of Max and Marie Décugis.

There had been no women’s tennis events at the 1904 Olympic Games, held in the United States, at Saint Louis, Missouri.

*Draw note: The first round also referred to as the Preliminary Round

May Sutton returned to Britain in 1906,landing at Liverpool on May 31st in her quest to defend her Wimbledon title. This final marked her first loss in singles outside of North America. A large crowd turned out for the Douglass-Sutton match. May started with her usual hard hitting. With the first chapter tied at 5 apiece Dorothea finishes it off with, in Little's words, "some seemingly impossible backhand returns" (p 10 of May Sutton, by Alan Little). Sutton tries to change tactics by coming to net in set two to no avail, as Douglass wins it on her 4th match point. According to the New York Times May "tired perceptibly" in the second set.

Earlier in the week Charlotte Sterry gave Sutton a rough match with her clever combination of drop shots and volleys.

There was no Challenge Round in the mixed doubles event at this tournament this year.

Draw notes:

Bertha (nee Townsend) was probably playing mixed with her brother HC Townsend.
The NYT is the source for the 2R Johnson/Johnson loss. Were there 2 pairs of Johnsons in the event?
-----

Defending champ Bessie Moore and the tennis sensation May Sutton are both absent, dimming much interest. All eyes are on Sutton as she competes in England for the coveted Wimbledon prize. The women's final is on Saturday the 23rd. Raibn delays the doubles and mixed finals until Monday.


The NYT reports that the women's doubles final was taken by a team "that took few chances, and played mostly from the back court. Miss Homans was the only one of the four who did any volleying."

MX: Dorothea Douglass/ Anthony F. Wilding (NZ) d. Ethel Thomson/Arthur W. Gore 4-6 6-2 6-3

Notes:
British papers have dubbed the defending Yank May Sutton, "The Pasdena Washerwoman" because of her shocking habit of exposing her arms. The prospect of Miss Douglass retaking her title stirs more excitement than usual for the ladies event.

Douglass bears down in 1906 and takes 10 titles, dropping only 2 sets all year. One of those wins is at Wimbledon, where she romps through the field. Over 4,000 show for a Thursday final (A capacity crowd at Worple Road) where Douglass beats the American. The second set is a thriller, Dorothea coming back from 0-4 to 5-4. In the 12th game Sutton saves 4 match points with "plucky play". "May Sutton, though hitting as hard as ever, couldn't control her strokes at the crucial stages." May's balls were flying long over the baseline, often by a foot. This is only May's second loss on British soil, both at the hands of Douglass.

Note that the doubles and mixed events were still not championship status.

Began August 13 Vancouver Open, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (Grass)
Venue: Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club

FI: Elizabeth Ryan (US) d Miss King

DF: Miss Polley/Elizabeth Ryan d Miss Hobson/Miss King

MX: Elizabeth Ryan/J. D. Hunter d Miss Polley/Major Williams

Information from Ted Tinling's book Love and Faults sheds more light on the Ryan sisters Pacific Northwest jaunt. Accordng to Elizabeth, "On out first trip we won every available prize in four tournaments: Vancouver, Victoria. Tacoma, and Seattle." (p 114 of Love and Faults). Ryan also recalls that it was in the Vancouver final that she first discovered the use of the volley due to a large rough patch on the court. "When Alice was on the good side she always seemed accurate enough to put the ball in the bad patch. After half-a dozen untakable bounces I was furious and accused her of cheating. Ryan then said to herself, "I have to stop this. I have to hit the ball before it bounces."

The preceding illustrates how Ryan started down the path to becoming the best volleyer of her era. This was also her first exposure to grass. On the west coast grass courts only existed in the north, where there was enough rain and a cool climate to support the surface.

Note that Ryan's memory is slightly off-as Wright and Ditson indicates she beat a Miss King in the Vancouver final. Either Ryan beat her sister her in an earlier round or she has the wrong venue. In light of Ryan's comments the information that "the seven grass courts never looked better" is amusing. There were some 500 to 600 spectators for the finals.

DF: Alice Ryan/Elizabeth Ryan d Alice Bell (Can)/V. Pooley (Can) 6-4 6-3

The date is an estimate based on the fact that the dates for the other 3 Pacific Northwest events from 1906 are known and Wright and Ditson indicates this event closed the circuit. Elizabeth Ryan won the singles in 3 of the 4 events on the circuit. The other singles winner was her sister Alice.

DF: Agnes Morton/Charlotte Sterry d. Gertrude Houselander/Violet Pinckney 6-4 6-1

MX: Dorothea Douglass/George Hillyard d. Agnes Morton/A. Taylor default

A top-class, non-handicap women’s doubles event was a novelty at this tournament. Douglass drops her first set all year in the semi vs Sterry. The match was delayed by rain for 30 minutes after two sets. Morton wins a set in the final but cannot prevail. These two sets are the only ones Dorothea drops all year long-she is undefeated in ten tournaments.
