Complete World Hard Court Championships results (1912-14; 1920-23)

This thread will contain the complete results from the women's singles, women's doubles and mixed doubles events at the World Hard Court Championships, which were held on clay (or on a clay-like surface) in the years 1912-14 and, after the First World War, 1920-23.

The tournament was held in Paris every year, with one exception, 1922, when it was held in Brussels. There was no women's doubles event at the 1912 and 1913 World Hard Court Championships.

Re: Complete World Hard Court Championships results (1912-14; 1920-23)

1912

June 1-10, Stade Français, Saint Cloud, Paris, France

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1913): "The institution at the Stade Français, Paris, of what are officially styled the Championnats du Monde sur Terre Battue, constituted one of the events of the season. France's ambition, laudable and intelligible, to have a Wimbledon of its own, has been realised, and the support obtained for its first tournament justified the enterprise.

[...]

"Mieken Rieck (Germany), Helen Aitchison (England) and Marguerite Broquedis (France) were the only three ladies whose chances in the singles had to be seriously considered. By narrow victories over both her rivals Mlle Broquedis won the event. Miss Aitchison never quite recovered from a bad start against Mlle Broquedis. She was not hitting confidently, only trying to keep the ball in court. The result was that the French champion's brilliancy had full play, and she scored repeatedly with a cross drive and a cross volley to her opponent's backhand. In the second set Miss Aitchison's length improved, while her opponent, revealing a mercurial temperament, was erratic. The set went to England at 6-4. Recovering, Mlle Broquedis by dazzling strokes ran to 4-1 in the final set. Each lady then won a game, and though Miss Aitchison captured the eighth game with an effort, Mlle Broquedis ran out at 6-3.

"Mlle Broquedis played a very strong, sound game in the first set of the final, and using her top-spin drive and volleys, won it easily at 6-3. The German champion's driving looked poor in contrast. In the second set there was a dispute over a point. Many spectators joined in the discussion, quite contrary to etiquette or rule, and the French lady became so unnerved that she lost six games in succession. However, she calmed down in the final bout, and, playing beautifully, ran out at 6-4. Frl Rieck showed great pluck, but she was admittedly not so well armed as her opponent."

Re: Complete World Hard Court Championships results (1912-14; 1920-23)

1913

June 7-15, Stade Français, Saint Cloud, Paris, France

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1914): "In spite of English absentees, the second tournament at Saint Cloud, officially styled the Championnats du Monde sur Terre Battue, was a magnificent success. On the Saturday nearly four thousand were present to witness the semi-finals. On Sunday, for the climax of the finals, over a thousand were turned away seatless, while one speculative owner of tickets, who had bought three seats at the rate of 9 francs each per day, sold them for 100 francs each for the last day's play alone.

"The centre court at the Stade Français is a model, almost a slavish model, of the centre court at Wimbledon. The stands, if less solidly constructed, are arranged the same way, and are as capacious; the run-back and side-run are as extensive; the scoring board is, if a little smaller, precisely similar; only the surface of the court, khaki in colour and baked sand in substance, is different. It must be confessed (says the special correspondent of 'The Field' [probably Arthur Wallis Myers]) that this yellowy brown colour, so baneful to the eyes in the strong glare of a midsummer sun, drew one's preference instinctively to the green turf of Wimbledon, so peaceful to look upon, a cushion for the feet compared with this rock-like plane. But probably the hard court at the Stade Français more nearly approaches a standardised court for the whole world than the centre court at Wimbledon. Turf for lawn tennis is not to be found in Africa or on the Continent. It is something of luxury in India, and even where turf is more general the standard of Wimbledon is rarely, if ever, reached.

"Outside the chief court at Saint Cloud, uncomfortably crowded on Sunday, the accommodation for spectators is on a generous scale - in marked contrast to the narrow alleys at Wimbledon. The French organisers have acres of beautiful parkland on which to distribute their crowds after a big match. Tea under the trees makes a delightful setting. The pavilion is 300 yards or so from the centre court, reached by sylvan glades. Its catering and dressing accommodation surpasses Wimbledon; indeed, any other tournament on this side of the Atlantic.

"To M. Albert de Joannis, commissionaire général of the hard court championships, is due high praise for the perfect organisation. Day after day he had to handle large and emotional crowds, to feed them, to provide them with good matches. All his labours were carried through with zeal and tact. Lawn tennis in France owes much to his enterprising genius. As the only Englishman associated with the tournament, Mr George M. Simond, the referee, is also to be congratulated. His task was perhaps more delicate than that of M. de Joannis, for he had to perform the unpleasant necessity of putting tired men into court for a second or even third match on the same day. Eight days was not enough for four championship events, two of which are the best of five sets..."

Re: Complete World Hard Court Championships results (1912-14; 1920-23)

1920

May 22-30, Stade Français, Saint Cloud, Paris, France

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1921): "After an interval of six years – for the competition in 1919 was an invitation inter-allied affair – the world's hard court championships (so designated by the International Federation) were revived, under George Simond's management, in the Stade Français. Sylvan Saint Cloud (said 'The Field' special correspondent [Arthur Wallis Myers]) had never looked better, and, to judge by the variety of sports ringed around the lawn tennis matches on Whit Monday, young France was more than herself again; her athletic zeal, bottled up during the war, was bursting forth with almost ungovernable energy. Something like a score of pistol shots rang forth on the fringe of the courts during the afternoon, signalling the start of foot races and other Olympic trials. Luckily the applause from the centre court – a model of that at Wimbledon – drowned these excursions and alarums. The weather for the first four days was hot and thundery.

[...]

"The ladies' events were of comparatively poor class in the absence of decisive vollyers. Dorothy Holman won the singles, losing only one set to Suzanne Amblard. This English player thus became the holder of both the covered court and hard court championships. Phyllis Satterthwaite retired through indisposition in the semi-final, but she would scarcely have beaten Miss Holman on a hard surface. The former Mlle Broquedis (now Marguerite Billout) was put out by Panchita Subirana, the Spanish lady champion, a player of beautiful style, needing only a little more speed."

Re: Complete World Hard Court Championships results (1912-14; 1920-23)

1921

May 28-June 5, Stade Français, Saint Cloud, Paris, France

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1922): "Ever since the world hard court championship was founded in 1912, the French governing body had endeavoured to attract the American racket to Saint Cloud. What Paris wanted, and what she got in 1921, was an official delegation from the States. William Tilden, who came to France for the first time, did not pretend to like a sand surface so well as grass, but he had won the American clay court championship in 1918, and was famous for reconciling his game to novel conditions. The champion was accompanied by Arnold W. Jones, a seventeen-year-old boy from Providence City, J.S. Jones, the latter's father, who is quite a sound player, and, on the ladies' side, by Molla Mallory, the American lady champion, and Edith Sigourney, her friend and partner.

[...]

"The leading French players, of course, competed; and the return of Suzanne Lenglen, after an absence of seven years, to the court on which she first sprung into fame was sufficient to disturb the sylvan serenity of Saint Cloud. The presence of Tilden and Mlle Lenglen, indeed, had the effect of filling every seat daily, and making the Stade Français the most animated arena in Europe for ten days. M. Albert de Joannis returned to his position as director, and laboured with punctilious care to make the tournament a success."

Re: Complete World Hard Court Championships results (1912-14; 1920-23)

1922

May 13-21, Royal Leopold Club, Brussels, Belgium

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1923): "It had been agreed before the war that Belgium should have the hard court championship meeting, after France had staged it for four years. Into its efficient organisation, the fruits of which were seen at the Royal Leopold Club, Brussels, Chevalier Paul de Borman threw himself with characteristic energy. He succeeded not only in providing a centre court of first-class proportions, both for players and spectators, other courts equally good, and amenities satisfying to the most fastidious, but also in attracting a representative entry of both sexes.

[...]

"The last day brought great heat and a tremendous crowd. A lack of officials was responsible for excessive crowding at the gangways, while between the matches photographers and autograph hunters rushed pell mell on to the court; the refreshment arrangements also proved quite inadequate. These defects, however, can easily be remedied on a future occasion.

[...]

"The ladies' final between Mlle Ryan and Mlle Lenglen followed lines which had been marked out on the Riviera in 1921. The champion was never in serious difficulty, and, playing a back-court game exclusively, she won with the loss of five games in two sets."

Re: Complete World Hard Court Championships results (1912-14; 1920-23)

So, the surface of the court in 1913 was "khaki in colour and baked sand in substance".

I find it quite interesting. So when did this event (or the French Championships) switch to red (brick) clay?

It also raises the question about the surface used in the Riviera or anywhere else in Europe (like Bad Homburg) at that time.

Good point Elegos. While these would all be broadly classified as "clay" they would all play differently to one degree or another just as grass or hard courts do. Playing on dried dung (India) or "clay" composed of anthills (South Africa) has an exotic appeal of its own.

When I went to university in Korea the clay courts were very sandy.

While I can't speak for the early Riviera events I do believe that by the mid 1920s they were held on the salmon colored red clay we are familiar with.

Re: Complete World Hard Court Championships results (1912-14; 1920-23)

Mark-the 1912 edition of Ayres Almanack has one score that differs from yours.

You have

1R: Marguerite Broquedis d. Emmy Mattuch (AUT) 6-1, 6-1

Ayres has

1R: Marguerite Broquedis d. Emmy Matuch (Ast) 6-1 6-2

Ayres also gives a slightly different drawn order. Of course there is no evidence that indicates Ayres was following the exact draw order, but in case you are interested it went as follows:

Draw=14

1R: Jeanne Matthey-bye
1R: Anne de Borman (Bel) d. Frau Roehling (Ger) 6-2 6-3
1R: Daisy Speranza d. Mlle Daggi default
1R: Mieken Rieck (Ger) d Marie Danet 6-2 6-4
1R: Marie Conquet d Mlle G. Castermanns (Bel) default
1R: Marguerite Broquedis d. Emmy Matuch (Ast) 6-1 6-2
1R: Helen Aitchison (GB) d. Mme Blage 6-2 6-3
1R: Mme Chandoir-bye

QF: Borman d. J Matthey 1-6 6-4 6-4
QF: Rieck d. Speranza 6-2 6-3
QF: Broquedis d. Mlle Conquet 6-3 6-2
QF: Aitchison d. Mme Chandoir 6-4 6-0

SF: Rieck d. Borman 6-3 6-1
SF: Broquedis d. Aitchison 6-2 4-6 6-3

FI: Marguerite Broquedis d. Mieken Rieck (Ger) 6-3 0-6 6-4

Ayres had the exact same draw order you used for the Mixed draw.
--------------------------------------------------------
Here is Ayres report of the 1912 World Hard Court event

From Ayres Alamanck:

(page 294) France's ambition, laudable and intelligent, to have a Wimbledon of its own, has been realized, and the support obtained for its first tournament justified the enterprise."

...
(page 295) Frl Rieck, Miss Aitchison, and Mlle Broquedis were the only three ladies whose chances in the singles had to be seriously considered. By narrow victoreis over both of her rivals Mlle Broquedis won trhe event. Miss Aitchison never quite recovered from a bad start against Mlle Broquedis. She was not hitting confidently,only trying to keep the ball in court.The result was the French champion's brilliancy had full play, and she scored repeatedly with a cross drive and a cross volley to her opponent's backhand. In the second set Miss Aitchison's length improved, while her opponent, revealing a mercurial temperament, was erratic. (p 297) The set went to England at 6-4. Recovering. Mlle Broquedis, by dazzling strokes, ran to 4-1 in the final set. Each lady then won a game, and though Miss Aitchison captured the 8th game with an effort, Mlle Broquedis ran out at 6-3.

Mlle played a very strong, sound game in the first set of the final, and , using her topspin drive and volleys, win it easily at 6-3.The German chapion's driving looked poor in contrst. In the second set there was a dispute over a point. Many spectators joined in the discussion, quite contrary to etiquette or rule,and the French lady became so unnerved that she lost 6 games in succession. However, she calmed down in the final bout, and playing beautifully, ran out at 6-4. Frl Rieck showed great pluck, but she was admittedly not so well armed as her opponent.

Re: Complete World Hard Court Championships results (1912-14; 1920-23)

I've changed the score of the first round match between M. Broquedis and E. Mattuch at the 1912 edition of the World Hard Court Championships. I was waiting for the "Ayres' Almanacks" I had reserved, but they were delayed, so I used other sources, such as the London "Times" and "Le Figaro". Although a French newspaper published in Paris, the latter's coverage of tennis in general was poor to non-existent.

I've also added in nearly every missing result above.

In one of his books, Wallis Myers mentions that the surface used at Saint Cloud in those days was a yellowy sandy one (if I remember rightly). But Wallis Myers wrote for "The Field" and edited "Ayres' Almanack", so the quotes I used above are probably all by him anyway.

I found at least one more first name. The Mrs C (Charles) Winslow of South Africa was Olive Winslow.

"Panchita" apparently was Francesca Subirana's nickname. She must have really preferred Panchita for this to be noted by Ayres back in 1920!

I have the first name of Princess Lobkowiczova (also spelt "Lobkowicz"). Surely her name ranks up there with Smashnova for being the perfect tennis moniker.
