I've been doing Juniors as well on http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=8040

only done it from 3rd rd though, but will edit it and complete it (singles only), junior doubles are particularly hard to get hold off.

ITF Juniors only has records from 1997 on its site (but do have junior doubles)

Good luck to my favs

Thumbs up

All results are welcome, Eggy!

I am listing the results in chronological order in the threads, from earliest to current. That way, we can tack on each new year's results and keep it current. I'll have seperate threads for each event. I figure it will make it easier for possible contributors to check what we have.

Brian-with the Wimbledon doubles, if it's possible I'd like to include some results from before 1913-when Wimbledon held a ladies doubles but without awarding a "prize" to the winners.
I'll start a French thread soon. Believe it or not there was actually a French Open before 1925! When I was looking up tennis results years in the London Times I found at least two years 1910 and 1911. I'm guessing these were "forgotten" by tennis historians because the World Hard Court event took its place.
I'll start a French thread which includes the early results and the World Hard Courts.

******************************************

Notes:

An amazing ladies final. Dupont saves 2 match points in the longest final since 1898, when the women played best of 5.
There were also 2 long rain delays. Some in the crowd of 11,000 rudely shouted for the women to get it over with so they could see the men's final, which turned out to be a one-sided affair.

Total points: Dupont 151, Brough 146. Only 3 breaks of serve the whole match. One mp saved by Margaret's fine volleys. Brough nets a return on the other.

This event showcased continued American dominance, with not one foreign quarterfinalist. Early upsets included the fall of French Open champ Nelly Landry and the best showing ever of sex symbol Gussy Moran in a major when she upset Hart in the quarters.

Margaret Dupont's maiden name was Osborne. She married (and later divorced) chemical tycoon Will Dupont.

Which years do you have Wimbledon doubles results for pre-1913? I'll wait before I add any replies. Don't want to have to do a lot of editing.

Impressive showing by Gussie. And she almost won her semi. Just think, she could have been a slam champion. As it is, she's become almost a de facto Kournikova. She was an excellent player who was highly regarded, but she's now remembered almost exclusively for something other than her tennis.

The Guiness book of Tennis has Wimbledon ladies doubles results from 1899 to 1907. From 1908 to 1912 there was no doubles, then in 1913 it was restarted as a "full championship event".

Wimbledon 1884
Draw 13

Final:
Maud Watson d. Lilian Watson 6-8 6-3 6-3

Semis:
M. Watson d. Blanche Bingley 3-6 6-4 6-2
L. Watson d. M. Leslie 6-4 6-1

Quarters:
M. Watson d. B. E. Williams 7-5 6-0
Bingley d. F. M. Winckworth 6-0 6-8 6-3
L. Watson d. Mrs. G. W. Cooper walkover
Leslie received a bye

Round one:

Maud Watson d. Mrs. Tyritt Drake 6-0 6-2
B. E. Williams d. Mrs. C. Wallis 6-2 6-1
Blanche Bingley d. Edith Cole 6-3 6-3
F. M. Winckworth d. E. Bushnell 6-0 6-1
Mrs. G. J. Cooper d. C. Bushnell Walkover
Lilian Watson recieved a bye
M. Leslie d. B. Wallis 6-2 6-1

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

Notes:

Recognized as the first ever grand slam for women today. At this time the Irish ladies championship(started in 1879) held more prestiege, as the older event.

A curious note: Leslie won a first round match , then got a quarterfinal bye, a curiosity never repeated.

Bingley became more famous as Blanche Hillyard.
The only time two sisters contested a slam final until the Williams
did so at the 2001 Us Open
First prize was a sliver flower basket
Because of heavy starched long sleeves shirts. the ladies all served underhanded. Al the ladies wore hats.

Just giving the 10-day bump. (Getting there.)

Does anyone know for sure when qualifying draws started for the USO and Wimbledon? Also, when did juniors start? I'm going by the years listed at the junior tennis site.

Wow, Rollo and Brian you guys are doing an excellent job compiling all these records.


Maybe if you asked Poe or someone else, you'd be able to get a seperate forum or sub-forum to put all your different threads(singles doubles, juniors, GS, GS doubles) into.

Thank you Ryan. That's a brill idea about getting a subforum of sorts for this when it's near completion-me and Brian will look into that!

If anyone has old records or results in the meantime-let us know!

Rollo, I was looking through a search engine and I've found every womens and mens grand slam result starting from 1970, but it's only for the last 16 in the draw. I dont know if this is of any use to you, btu I'm going to try and find some complete results if these arent sufficient.

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

Notes:

Still a local affair, with the women listed with the clubs they represent! Carrie Neely is the one non-local, coming form Chicago. In 1998 the eastern women will face the first "Western" invasion, when Marion Jones comes east to vie for the title.

All the participants had a sit down dinner after the ladies final. Fresh lemonade inside the clubhouse kept spectators cool.
The local paper noted on day 3 that "all day carriages and buggies were coming to and fro the tennis festivities".
