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

Notes: Slevin called "Lillie" in Philly Inquirer.

The draw is reconstructed from the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Some oddities: Miss Stone(see **) is shown winning in the Prelim round, but not mentioned after. This is probably an error on the paper's part. Also, first round matches marked * were actually listed in the paper as First round matches. If this was the case, then those women won a Prelim match and got byes in the next round. This is possible, as standards in draws, courts, and even balls were still being debated at the time.

Early doubles action is incomplete.

The contestants were introduced to the crowd by name and club before play started. Red, orange, and black (the USTA colors) are worn not only in the ladies dresses, but in racquets. (Maybe they used bows or colored strings?)On the first day the Inquirer reports that 'lemonade was served in the clubhouse as those who braced the heat applauded the maidens with flying locks and perspiring faces who forced the little rubber ball backward and forward over the net".

Bessie Moore played 3 matches on the opening day!

The Prelim match between Kemble-Williams set an early record for most games(in a 3 set match) at 50. The match lasted for over 4 hours.

Miss Terry won the cup for 1 year and an enamel laurel wreath pin. Miss Schultz won a pair of opera glasses made of gold and pearl!

The ladies doubles winners got French traveling clocks, handy when playing away from home.

After the final, dinner was served at the club. In the evening "The grounds were illuminated by electric lights and Chinese lanterns ..
The orchestra was stationed on the clubhopuse porch and furnished the music. Dancing was induged in all the evening and it was quie late when it was all over.

_______________________________________________

Notes:

All the women were from the east except for Carrie Neely of Cincinnatii. The best American female, May Sutton, is competing at Wimbledon. Bostonian feminist and socialite Evelyn Sears wins.

Evelyn had a tough time with frail Newport socialite Maud Barger-Wallach, who took the second set 10-8. Maud got cramps and play was stopped "til she recovered", but Evelyn won through. Maud won the title in 1908 and often played with her doctor present courtside!

Brian-I've put this up as listed in American Lawn Tennis. Feel free to put in the byes for the First round. Also, Mrs. Pouch was a famous player under her maiden name-i'll try to track it down!

I was wondering where this ran off too! It's a good move Brian, you master moderator you

Ok. 1907. The mysterious Mrs. Pouch is none other than former champ(1894) Helen Helwig.

The scores I forgot.

E. G. Ostheimer d. N . Ostheimer 6-2 6-1
Wildey d. Clothier 6-2 6-0

Guess the "2" onmy keyboard was jumping that night!

1910 US singles is coming....

Notes:
American Lawn Tennis reported that there was "a lowering of class" as "many contenders of former years" were absent, especially May Sutton, who entered the Canadian singles then went back to California. Also missing were the 1907 and 1908 champs Evelyn Sears and Maud Barger-Wallach.

Hazel plays "essentailly a man's game". She quickly overcame her finals opponent, the match lasting 34 minutes!

In the ladies doubles the most excitement came in the quaters, where Green, who "played brilliantly at the barrier(net)" and Candian moyes, with her many aces, gave the champs a real fight.

Miss Moyes the first ever Canadian to make a slam quarterfinal.

Hazel Hotchkiss=Hazel Wightman.
Mrs. Pouch =1984 champ Helen Helwig
Hammond later married as Mrs. Raymond.

Reconstructed from the Philadelphia Inquirer. A bizzarre draw by todays standards, with byes coming the second round of play of singles. Some results are missing, perhaps more research will yield complete results.

Some sources list Augusta Schultz as "Alice".

I want to extend my deepest thanks to Louloubelle, who has been so gracious and cool for providing hard to get results and stories from the Australian Open.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes: A section of center court hit by Nazi bombs is covered, but it's full steam ahead at the first Wimbledon since 1939. Germans and Italians are banned from play. Nothing is stopping top seed Pauline Betz either, as she dominates the field. Pauline drops only 6 games in the final, the farthest she is pushed. The pert American finds herself featured on the cover of Time magazine.

A large crowd watched a forst rounder between 2 former slam champs of the 1930s, Nuthall and Mathieu.

Bea Carris originally Belgian. Gem Hoahing from Hong Kong.





Hammersly=Freda James

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The "little Wonder", Lottie Dod, captures her first Wimbledon. Miss Dod is the only woman in tennis history never to lose in grand slam, going unbeaten in her 5 Wimbledons. Some ladies feel the young girl has an unfair advantage over them. Older women must wear more restrictive clothes, while youg Lottie can dash about in shorter skirts.

M. Jacks d. Edith Cole 6-4 7-5
Lena Rice(Ireland) d. Mary Steedman 7-5 6-2

Hillyard does not defend title.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A highpoint for Lena Rice, who becomes the only Irish woman to win Wimbledon., but a lowpoint for the event, with the smallest entry ever(4). Lena never again plays competitive tennis.
A pregnant Hillyard doesn't defend.
