I insert here some papers with rolls of honour, interesting because show that the tournament was held during WWI too.

Hi, Mauro,

I had the impression that in some years the Swiss Championships might have been played on a more gravel-like or tinder-like surface, as opposed to traditional clay. But I might be wrong.
--

I'm not surprised to see that the Swiss Championships continued to be held during World War One, especially given Switzerland's special geographical position. As you can see, I included the result from Zermatt, which was published in "Lawn Tennis and Badminton" circa September 1915. I thought that result must have been from 1914, but we now know it wasn't.
--

Here are the first names of a few more winners of the women's singles event:

1916 Magda Aranyi (FRA)
1925 Madeline O'Neill (GBR)
1926 Elsebeth Brehm (DEN)
1929 Bella Pons (ESP)

Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

I have added in an incomplete list of Swiss Covered Championships.

I insert a roll of honour, interesting because writes Paula Von Reznicek as Mrs in 1931, while we know that Von Reznicek would must be her maiden name. It's need check her biography.

Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

Thanks to Rollo and Newmark for your lists of Wiesbaden, that I have added in, increased with other years.

I indicate you that you both have exchanged 1908 and 1909. According to our yearly threads, the results were these:
1908 Hedwig Neresheimer d. Dagmar von Krohn 6-3, 6-2
1909 Marie Dufrénoy (BEL) d. Hedwig Neresheimer 6-3, 6-2

Paula von Reznicek married Hans Stuck in 1932. It was - and still is - quite normal for an adult woman to be referred to as "Madame/Mme" in French, even when she's not married.

In fact, I believe the use of "Madamoiselle/Mlle" ("Miss/Ms") was recently outlawed in France.

Yes, but as you see in the paper that I have uploaded, other players are named Mlle. So it's strange that Von Reznicek was named Mme, when in 1931 she would must be named Mlle.

Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

South of England Championships, Devonshire Park, Eastbourne

A Brief History

Part I. The Early Years: 1883-1914

In the early 1880s, there were several attempts to hold a significant lawn tennis tournament at Devonshire Park, located in Eastbourne, in the county of East Sussex on the south-east coast of England. According to “The Field” sports newspaper of 17 September 1882: “Although Eastbourne has had many lawn tennis meetings during the last two seasons, at various times these have been limited to residents and those players who were visiting the now fashionable watering-place. Indeed, it might be said that there was a continual run of competitions and handicaps being decided at Devonshire Park, the chief centre of everything that takes place at Eastbourne. So successful were these tournaments there, and so well appreciated by the habitués of the park, that Captain Holman, the energetic secretary, determined to hold one on a larger scale, and open to all who might choose to enter.”

The first “large scale” tournament, referred to above, was held in late August/early September 1882 and, although not very large by later standards, was nevertheless a success. It featured a men’s singles event only (a small tournament held in Eastbourne in August 1881 had featured a very modest singles event for women. A small women’s singles event was probably also held at Devonshire Park at some point in 1882). It was not until the mid-1880s that a non-handicap women’s singles event was first held at Eastbourne, when the tournament also acquired its title of the South of England Championships and became the main season-ending outdoor tournament in the British lawn tennis calendar, a position it held for many years. It was usually held around the middle of September.

In the early years the women’s singles event at the South of England Championships tournament was dominated by three Englishwomen: Blanche Hillyard, Charlotte Sterry and Dorothea Lambert Chambers. In the twenty years between 1895, when she was 22, and 1905, by which time she had reached the age of 42, Blanche Hillyard (née Bingley) won the singles title a record eleven times, and was runner-up an additional four times. Nearly a century would pass before Blanche Hillyard’s record number of singles titles at this tournament was equalled.

Impressive as Blanche Hillyard’s record is, it must be said that she won several of her singles title at the South of England Championships when a Challenge Round was in existence. This meant that, as the defending champion, she had several times to play only one match. A Challenge Cup was first offered for the women’s singles event in 1887, when Margaret Bracewell had a rare victory over her countrywoman Hillyard in the Challenge Round. The following year, Hillyard beat Bracewell at the same stage for the loss of just two games.

Charlotte Sterry (née Cooper) took the singles title at Eastbourne four times during this early period, but was runner-up no less than eight times. If it had not been for Blanche Hillyard, her main rival for many years, Sterry would no doubt have won many more singles titles at the South of England Championships.

The third top Englishwoman to win multiple singles titles in Eastbourne before World War One might well have been the best of the trio, namely Dorothea Lambert Chambers (née Douglass). She took the singles title five times and was runner-up on two other occasions. She played in the last final before World War One, somewhat surprisingly losing to her countrywoman Ethel Larcombe, who had won the title the previous two years, but was not in Lambert Chambers’s class as a singles player. Nevertheless, Ethel Larcombe (née Thomson) did play through to win the title in the years 1911-13, the Challenge Round having been abolished at this tournament in 1900.
--

Part II. Between the Wars: 1919-38

When the tournament resumed in 1919, after World War One, the women’s singles event had its first truly overseas winner in the form of Elizabeth Ryan, a native of California. (May Langrishe, from County Kilkenny in Ireland, had won the same title in 1889 and 1890, when Ireland was still under British rule.) The 1919 singles title was the first of three consecutive singles titles in Eastbourne for Elizabeth Ryan, who thrived on the fast grass courts which have always been the surface at this particular tournament.

In 1922, Elizabeth Ryan was succeeded as singles champion by 30-year-old Irene Peacock (née Bowder), who had been born in India, but later on acquired South African citizenship. Together with Elizabeth Ryan, Irene Peacock and the champion in 1936, Anita Lizana of Chile, were the only overseas winners of the women’s singles title at the South of England Championships during this period. The only player to win the women’s singles title at both Wimbledon and the South of England Championships in these years was Dorothy Round, who achieved this feat in 1934. She was arguably the best English female player of the 1930s.

In addition to Elizabeth Ryan, other multiple winners of the women’s singles title at Eastbourne during this period were Phoebe Holcroft (later Watson) and Phyllis King. Holcroft-Watson was victorious five times in the six years extending from 1923-28 (she was also runner-up in 1924). Her feat of winning four singles title in a row, from 1925-28, was unique at that point in time and has been bettered only once since then. Phyllis King (née Mudford) took the singles title at Eastbourne three times: in 1930, 1933 and 1939; she was also runner-up in 1934.
--

Part III. The Lean Years: 1946-67

The period extending from 1946, when the tournament resumed after the end of the Second World War, to 1967 and the eve of open tennis, was probably the leanest in the history of the South of England Championships. During those twenty-two years, no player who won the women’s singles title at Wimbledon also won the same title at Eastbourne. One of the main reasons for this was that women’s tennis was dominated for most of this period by American players and, due to a quirk in the calendar, the South of England Championships was held at almost the same time as the United States Championships, in early to mid-September.

This fact meant that not only the top American and other overseas players, but also the top British players, had the choice of playing either at Forest Hills in New York, then the venue for the United States Championships, or in Eastbourne. At a time when foreign travel was much easier than it had previously been, due to significant progress in air travel, it is not surprising that most players opted to play at Forest Hills.

With the exception of the Australian Faye Toyne, the 1964 champion, during the period in question all of the winners of the singles title at the South of England Championships were English. (Gem Hoahing, champion in 1949, was born in Hong Kong to parents with Chinese ancestors, but had acquired British citizenship by 1949.)

The best of these Englishwomen included Jean Smith (née Walker), who was singles champion four times, in 1948 and 1950-52; Anne Shilcock, three times a winner (in 1955-56 and 1958); and Ann Haydon, who was 18 years old when she won the title in 1957, by defeating her 25-year-old countrywoman Angela Mortimer in the final. Four years later, Mortimer would win the singles title at Wimbledon, a feat not achieved by Ann Haydon until 1969, when she was 30 years old and known under her married name of Ann Jones.
--

Part IV. The Open Era: 1968-present

The year after her triumph at Wimbledon, Ann Jones won the singles title at Eastbourne for a second and final time. Open tennis had arrived by then.

Although open tennis and the widespread introduction of sponsorship, prize money, etc., into the sport of tennis meant the end for many tournaments, it probably saved the Eastbourne tournament. In 1968, the South of England Championships was moved up the calendar, from circa mid-September to mid-July, just after the Wimbledon tournament, although this situation lasted for only two years. In 1970, the tournament was moved again, to a mid-June date, in fact to the week before Wimbledon, the week during which it has been held ever since.

This change in the date meant that the Eastbourne tournament no longer clashed with the United States Championships. Moreover, because it was now being held just before Wimbledon, many players began to use it as part of their preparation for the world’s biggest tournament. For these reasons, and due to the continuing decline in British tennis, the tournament acquired a much more international flavour from the late 1960s onwards. Whereas almost every winner of the women’s singles title at the South of England Championships before 1968 had been born within the British Isles – the only exceptions were the aforementioned Elizabeth Ryan, Anita Lizana, Gem Hoahing and Faye Toyne – Ann Jones (champion in 1970) and Virginia Wade (champion in 1975, and runner-up in 1974 and 1976) are the only British-born players to have won this title since the beginning of open tennis. Indeed, no British woman has even reached the final since 1976.

There were no senior women’s events at the South of England Championships in 1973, while from 1974 until 2009 no men’s events were held at the tournament. (During this period, the main men’s event on grass in the run-up to Wimbledon was the tournament held at the Queen’s Club in England two weeks before the former tournament. This is still the case today.)

The dominant force in the women’s singles event at Eastbourne from the late 1970s to the early 1990s was Martina Navratilova, who was born in Czechoslovakia, but became an American citizen in 1981. Between 1978, when she won the singles title for the first time, and 1993, when she won her eleventh and last singles title, Navratilova appeared in thirteen singles finals, including ten consecutive, from 1982-1991. Her only loss during this run came against the Czech player Helena Sukova in the 1987 final. Navratilova’s eleven singles titles at Eastbourne equalled the record set by Blanche Hillyard in 1905, although Hillyard had, of course, benefited from several Challenge Rounds.

Seven times – in 1978, 1982-86 and 1990 – Navratilova went on to win the singles title at Wimbledon after winning the singles title in Eastbourne. This is an open era record. Since 1968, the American Chris Evert (champion in 1974 and 1976) and the Czech Jana Novotna (champion in 1998) have also achieved this feat. One reason why more players have not achieved the same feat is that a number of top players have preferred not to play singles in the week immediately preceding the Wimbledon tournament, so have avoided the Eastbourne tournament. These include the Wimbledon champions Steffi Graf (Germany), Martina Hingis (Switzerland), Venus Williams (United States), Serena Williams (United States) and Maria Sharapova (Russia). Between them those five players have participated in the singles event at the Eastbourne tournament a total of just six times (indeed, Hingis and Sharapova have never taken part in this tournament).

The absence of the aforementioned top players has taken some of the lustre from the tournament in recent years, although the winner has tended to be a top ten player, whether of the past, present or future. Several top players continue to enter the women’s singles event each year, thereby maintaining its status among top-level tournaments.

In 2009, the Eastbourne tournament was merged with the Nottingham tournament, and men’s events were held in Eastbourne again for the first time since the early 1970s. This situation looks set to continue for the immediate future. Whether or not it changes, this great tournament is likely to survive for many years to come. It certainly deserves to do so.
