Re: US Doubles at Longwood

The USTA has decided to combine the men's and women's championships at Forest Hills into the same time period. With a busy schedule at the New York Venue they opt to move the ladies doubles to Longwood with the men's doubles and mixed doubles.

This arrangement will last until 1968, when under Open tennis all five championship events move back to Forest Hills. The only exception to this is from 1942 through 1945, when slim men's draws due to World War II allow all five events to be at Forest Hills.

Summary:

4,200 appear for the women's final on the 25th, 3,500 for the mixed semis, and 3,000 the final day for the men's and mixed finals. Sarah Palfrey Fabyan wins both titles.This is the 3rd year in a row Sarah and Helen have walked away with the doubles crown.

There were 9 breaks in the women's doubles final, a disappointing match overall. Sarah was the best of the four with her volleys dominating the court after a sloppy first set; with Helen Jacobs keeping her team in points with defensive gets.

Top foreign seeds (and Wimbledon winners) James and Stammers were upset in the semis by Andrus and Babcock, who played the more aggressive brand of tennis at the end of ech set. Fabyan and Jacobs topped the 2nd ranked British pair of Dearman/Lyle 8-6 6-4 in an encounter containing 14 service breaks out of 24 games played.

-------------------------------------------

Summary:

Top seeds and 3 time champions Sarah Palfrey Fabyan/Helen Jacobs are beaten in a thriller of a final held on a Monday.

"The flashing racquet of the dark haired California girl was dealing out heavy execution from every quarter, putting the defenders under a pressure that caused them to falter at vital junctures." Carolin's forehand stung, and her overheads and volleys stood up as well. Midge was missing badly on the backhand volley, "her specialty", but proved more solid as the match wore on. It was Van Ryn's volleys in rat a tat exchanges at net that prevailed in the exciting last minutes.

The winners gained healthy applause from a crowd normally partisan in favor of Mrs Fabyan of Boston.

Both of the final teams had to work hard in the semis. Babcock/Van Ryn recovered from 1-4 in set 1 and needed 5 match points to put away Andrus/Henrotin 8-6 6-4. Fabyan/Jacobs won 6-1 21-19 over Marble and Stammers in the longest set in memory. At 10-9 Sarah and Jacobs had 3 match points they couldn't convert. Stammers saved each one with blistering forehands.

In the mixed doubles top seeds Helen Jacobs and Wilmer Allison cruise up to the semis. At that stage rain had washed out play and prompted him to go fishing in Maine to get away. He decides to default in the mixed to concentrate on men's doubles. Miss Jacobs agreed, knowing Allison was near the end of his limits due to an injury. He was unable to defend his men's US singles title the following week. The 2nd semi witnesses a mob scene as 5,000 descend on the Longwood Club. Sunday sports events cannot charge admission by law, so the largest crowd here since the depression surrounds the court. People faint, fall out of trees, and fences come down in the chaos as Sarah Fabyan and Don Budge win a match tame by comparison at 6-3 6-2.

The mixed final is straightforward, as Alice Marble and Gene Mako roll to a 6-3 6-2 win.

Summary:

With many foreign stars on hand 6,000 appear on the last 4 days.

The toughest match defenders Sarah palfrey Fabyan and Alice Marble has was in the semifinals. The #1 British team of Kay Stammers and Freda James shot out to a 4-1 lead in the 2nd set through combination of hard hitting, rushing the net, and volley errors of Sarah's part. The Brits even had a point for 5-1, but failed to close. Matters ended on Stammers' serve and she double faulted and Marble split the middle with a volley for the final point.

In the 2nd semi Carolin Babcock and Midge Van Ryn seemed to have the match in hand when up 6-3 6-2 40-30, only to see the British team of Dearman/Ingram reel off 5 straight games. The Americans regrouped in the final chapter to win 6-3 5-7 6-2. The Times wrote: "The Americans appeared so unnerved by abrupt turn of the tide against them that it was thought they might never collect their forces again. ut, after losing the first game of the final set, they braced and, with Mrs Van Ryn volleying in her best fashion for the first time in the match, put on so much pressure from the net that Miss Ingram and Miss Dearman had to give ground steadily though obstinately in beautiful rallies of sharp, aggressive hitting."

Sarah's volleys and Alice 's serve were a bit too tough for Carolin and Midge in a close 7-5 6-4 final.

Sarah won the mixed for the 3rd time. It was the first mixed title for her partner Don Budge.

Summary:

The 3 set ladies final saved the final day. Hard hitting Pole "Jaja" and the French Simone Mathieu fought hard vs the serve and volley combo of Sarah Fabyan and Alice Marble. By contrast the crowd of 4,000 sat in silence through the men's final, which was a one-sided dud.

Fabyan/Marble led 5-2 at the start and had 2 set points. They failed to convert however, and eventually lost the first set 6-8.

"Mme Mathieu played a beautiful match" reported the Times. "Her lobbing was extraordinarily fine. Her return of service, fading fast across court, trapped Miss Marble repeatedly. She was strong frm both sides and her generalship was to be commended." The Polish/French combo won the first set and looked on the verge of victory when they went from 2-4 to 4 all in the second. Jaja was belting winners with her forehand and scrambling about. Alice and Sarah held on to win the 2nd 6-4 and left court for the 15 minute intermission. This is common in the US but not in Europe, and the volatile Mathieu was visibly upset by the break and was never the same afterwards. Jaja started to make more errors too, and the Yanks pulled out a nail-biter.

"Miss Marble and Mrs Fabyan have seldom had to show their courage as they did in this match. They were braving cannon fire when they went to the net in the face of such hitters as Mlle Jedrzejowska and Mme Mathieu. At times their racquets were almost wrested from their hands by the force of their opponents blows, but they never stopped going forward to get in their volleys and smashes." Sarah won the most enthusiastic applause from an appreciative gallery in getting back the bullets fired from Jaja right at her near the net.

Alice Marble and Don Budge romped in the mixed final over the Aussie team of Thelma Coyne and John Bromwich. The semis and finals were played on the same day. It was a long day for Alice, with 3 matches and 7 sets in one afternoon. The two sets of silverware made it all worth it.

44 games-2 points from defeat in QF. Stammers-Lumb dodged 3 mps in their QF. Henrotin is "feared for her cleverness and her volleying ability." Alice and Sarah sub par.

Sources:

The New York Times


--------------------------------------

Summary:

Sarah Palfrey and Alice Marble prove to be the cream of the field for the 3rd straight year.

Alice is devastating throughout. The British team of Freda Hammersley and Kay Stammers put up a tough fight though.Freda used lobs against Sarah. In the end the aggressive Americans get a vital break in each set. Mrs Hammersley used to be Freda James, and is best at doubles. Beauty Kay Stammers is adored by male fans on and off the court-dating future US Senator and President Jack Kennedy.

Summary:

A capacity crowd of about 3,600 watches the doubles semifinals at Longwood. Only half that show for the finals. Marble and Palfrey won for the 5th straight year. This is Palfrey's 8th US doubles crown. The 1st seeded foreign team of Hardwick/Scott go out in the semis to Bundy/Van Ryn, who were the first unseeded pair to reach the ladies doubles final since seeding began.

The 35 minute final had a bit of drama as Bundy and Van Ryn led 4-3 in the first set. Alice was off form and Dodo was on, keeping things close. Bundy fell off in form though, and the superior team won in straights.

In exact draw order.

Barbara Wood listed as L.C. Wood at ALT and the NYT.

---------------------------------------------------

Sources:

American Lawn Tennis, September 15 issue, pages 6-11.

The New York Times [which provided the seedings]

---------------------------------------------------

Summary:

In a dramatic final "Broughie and Ozzie" edge out rivals Doris Hart and Pat Todd. Louise and Margaret lost a 4-1 lead in the opening chapter. From that stage Pat "began to kill any and all balls within reach." At 6-5 they broke Margaret Osborne's serve with some clever lobbing.

First set Hart and Todd 7-5.

Set two went to Louise and Margaret-who kept up a net attack. As usual Margaret was the most consistent of all the ladies on court. Doris Hart faltered on her serve, and was broke in the 5th and 9th games.

Second set Brough and Osborne 6-3.

The last set was nip and tuck all the way until the final game. The New York Times wrote the crowd was "worked up" in the tense final set. Toddy made 3 volley errors and Hart missed a smash to hand Louise and Margaret their incredible 6th US Doubles title in a row.

The world's #1 doubles team survived a scare in the quarters-where Aussie Nancye Bolton and Virginia Kovacs led a set and 4-3.

A larger crowd of 6,000 saw the semis, where both losing teams put up good fights but were outclassed.

Sources:

New York Times

--------------------------------------------

Summary:

For the first time in over a decade 9 time champions Louise Brough and Margaret du pont are not competing here as a team. Louise is resting a serious arm injury. This left Fry and Hat, their most dangerous foes, as the runaway favorites.

Rain hampered play all week. Two days were entirely washed out. The final was pushed to Monday. Even when players did go on court if often looked more fit for ducks than humans. Worst of all was the death of a spectator early in the week. He was killed by a bolt of lightening while seeking shelter from a rainstorm under a tree.

The final was played in a steady drizzle. Chaffee and Todd have only paired up since the week before the nationals; at times their lack of teamwork was glaringly obvious.
