Lenglen continued her dominance and met Lambert Chambers again in the Challenge Round, Lambert Chambers had defeated Ryan and Mallory to reach the final but lost 6-4 6-0. Lenglen also won the French Closed Championships and the Olympic Games. In fact Lenglen goes undefeated all year in singles as she wins 12 events.

Mallory defeated her semi-final conquerer of the previous year at the US Championships in the final and therefore won her 5th US Championships.

Re: 1920 results

Week of January 12-18

January 12-18, Carlton Club First Meeting, Cannes, France (Clay)
Venue: The Carlton Club

1R: Suzanne Lenglen-bye

QF: Lenglen d Lady Domini Elliadi Crosfield (GB) 6-0 6-1

SF: Lenglen d Madeline O'Neill (GB) 6-0 6-1

FI: Suzanne Lenglen d. Elizabeth Ryan (US) 6-0 6-1

Mixed Doubles

1R: Suzanne Lenglen/Pierre Albarran-bye

QF: Lenglen/Albarran d Marie Storms (Bel)/Alain Gerbault 6-1 6-2

SF: Lenglen/Albarran d J Sanders/G Jung 6-1 6-1

FI: Elizabeth Ryan (US)/Major Ritchie (GB) d. Suzanne Lenglen/Pierre Albarran 6-1 4-3 retired

Suzanne beats an off-form Ryan in only 20 minutes and retires in the mixed final after arguing with her partner, angering the crowd.

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1921) "A stiff breeze blew down the court and lowered play all round. Here the greater experience of Ritchie and his partner proved of tremendous value; they made the wind their servant instead of their master. The French pair, on the other hand, were obviously distressed, and the slower pace of the game, with deflected lobs as its feature, caused mistakes and misunderstandings. The first set was brief and one-sided, Miss Ryan showing sustained accuracy and skill, and Ritchie returning every ball with great shrewdness in the wind. At the beginning of the second set Mlle Lenglen did many fine things off her own racket, sometimes fighting two volleyers single-handed and scoring between them; but she could not maintain this effort, and after a long seventh game had gone against her side she retired from the match. Robbed of complete victory by this incident Ritchie and Miss Ryan had nevertheless shown on the day a conclusive superiority, and they were clearly entitled to win the event."

Re: 1920 results

Week of January 26-February 1


January 5-31 Heights Casino Tournament, Broooklyn, New York, New York (Indoors on wood)
Venue: Heights Casino

Draw=12

1R: Molla Bjurstedt Mallory d Katherine Cornell 6-0 6-0
1R: Mrs Theodore Cassebeer d Mrs Charles Bedford default
1R: Mrs H. B. Kaltenborn d Mrs SF Weaver default
1R: Mrs Rawson Wood d Mrs DeForest Candee default

QF: Mallory d Cassebeer 6-1 6-2
QF: Kalterborn d Mabel Straffin default

QF: Eleanor Goss d Adele Bull in 2 sets

SF: Mallory d Kalterborn 6-1 6-1
SF: Goss d Rawson Wood in 2 sets

FI: Molla Mallory d. Eleanor Goss 6-0 8-6

The draw announced and play was supposed to commence on January 5, but the large women's draw and other events (there was aclass B men's event for exmaple), meant that an actual women's singles did not take place until January 10. Even after that play was sporadic, with several defaults.

In the final Molla overpowered her foe in the first se, winning the first 8 games. She also led 5-4 4-0 in the second. Goss made a fight of it towards the end by volleying well. A point analysis indicated that goss made 6o errors in the match, most of them by driving out.

Jan 24-31, Bengal Championships, Calcutta, Bengal, India

FI: Mrs E. Berthoud d. Mrs Martin 6-0 6-1

SF: Mallory/Rawson Wood d Hartman/Waring 6-0 6-0

FI: Molla Mallory/Mrs Rawson Wood d. Bessie Holden/Mrs Albert Humphries 6-1 6-4

Molla wins her 5th straight Height's Casino Indoors. Mallory volleys in a style that may have been an early form of the swing volley. The NYT describes it as "a full arm sweep". Molla's style tends more towards the baseline overall. In a good final her passing shots are a bit too deadly for Goss, whose volleys sometimes come off for winners but more often hit the top of the tape.

*The exact number in the doubles draw is unclear.
-----
The Annual USTa metting takes place this week in New York.

The USTA also changes the foot fault rule by making players keep at leaast one foot on the ground, outlawing "jumping" into a serve.

The USTA also approves a women's international style competition. Mrs Wightman has offered a cup for the event, which the USTA decides will be called the Hazel Hotchkiss Wightman Trophy. Invitations to other nations were sent with a tentative date set for August 23. It won't be until 1923 that the event becomes a reality.

The ladies wanted to move their championship from June to September. This measure was approved and had the beneficial effect of allowing players to go overseas to compete at Wimbledon in June and return for the national title. In years to come traffic flows in the other direction too, as the Wightman Cup will bring British players to American shores after Wimbledon.

Molla Mallory was to compete here but changed her mind to prepare for her journey to Europe. the NYT reports that Mrs Singer "formerly held the women's singles championship of Paris." Mrs Singer's play was of a high standard, her backhand being her weaker wing.

The women's final was held on Feb 27. The winner's name is engraved on the Flagler Cup.

* An indisposed Suzanne did not play in the singles event and scratched from the mixed doubles event at this tournament.

Fisher favored using the initials FMB, which stood for his full name, Francis Marion Bates. RU in the 1906 Australasian Championships, Fischer had served in New Zealand's parliament until 1914. By 1919 he had emigrated to Europe. He had a stake in the tennis business on the Riviera and was the paramour of Lady Sophie Wavertree, a British society dame famous for her pre-Wimbledon parties.

More information on Fischer is available through: Maxim, Paul (2007), Printers, politicians and piston rings: a biography of the Fisher family
