Summary:


The decision of the ITF to grant Wimbledon the title of "World Championships on Grass" prompted the All England Club to give the women's doubles and mixed doubles full championship status. It wasn't an event at all from 1908, and in 1900-1907 had only limited status.

Ironically all 3 ladies events were marred in some way by retirements or defaults in the first year all events were granted championship status.
The long awaited showdown between Larcombe and Chambers doesn't occur. The defending champ was injured in a freak accident the day before the Challenge Round. While playing the mixed doubles final Ethel was hit in the side of the face by her partner, who had smashed the ball form behind her. It was so severe she retired from the mixed whem it was evident she could not continue, having been struck in the eye.

As the challenge round was scheduled the next day she was forced to default. When Ethel won in 1912 many felt it was because Chambers was absent. However, Ethel had won an encounter just weeks before the 1913 event at Queen's in straight sets.

Dorothea isn't pushed by her opponents, winning 5 matches at the loss of only 17 games.

The doubles final is also marred by injury, 42 year old Charlotte Sterry tore a tendon in her leg while her team was points from victory at 6-4 4-2 40-15.

The unusual occurrence of all 3 major finals being decided by retirement or default has never been repeated.

---

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 10, 1913:

“Tuesday, July 1. Women’s singles semi-finals.

“The two semi-finals were played today. Dorothea Lambert Chambers is regaining her confidence fast. She was altogether too good for Helen Aitchison, who, except for one or two short periods when she was finding the sidelines with irreproachable accuracy, was not on her best game. In fact, Mrs Lambert Chambers hit too hard for her, and played better than she has played all this season. She only lost five games in the two sets, and certainly always looked to be winning comfortably.

“This was far from being the case with Winifred McNair in the other match, in which she was opposed by Dorothy Holman. The game was very much a repetition of Mrs McNair’s game the day before with Charlotte Sterry; after losing the first set she won the next two, on each occasion just getting home by an advantage set in the third after being led in it. Her exertions of the previous day apparently disinclined her to do much volleying, but there was not the same necessity for it as in her previous match, since Miss Holman is naturally a baseliner, whereas Mrs Sterry had, if possible, to be kept back there by aggression.

“Still, Mrs McNair chose her time to come in very well, and made a lot of winning volleys, controlling their direction well, and concealing their pace with some skill. She has also acquired, probably from her husband, the art of lulling her opponents to a false sense of security by appearing to be absolutely done to the world, whereas in truth and in fact (as they say in the law) she has any amount of reserve to call upon.

“Miss Holman played steadily all through, and at times very well indeed; it was an even match, but Miss Holman failed to drive her advantage home, losing three or four game from 40-0. On the other hand, this is really a tribute to Mrs McNair’s pluck and pertinacity, and the way in which, when led 4-2 in the final set, she forced Miss Holman to a position in which a toss [lob] was the only possible reply, and then smashed that toss to glory every time, was as nice a bit of combined tactics and skill as could be desired.”

--

“The Mixed Doubles. Thursday, July 3. The Final.

“The programme opened on the centre court with this event, in which James C. Parke and Ethel Larcombe met Hope Crisp and Agnes Tuckey, and so far as the match proceeded it was evident that the best reply to ‘parallel formation’ is ‘parallel formation’, for Crisp and his partner did better against their formidable antagonists than any pair whom the latter had met at Wimbledon.

“Crisp did not start auspiciously, for he promptly lost his service game. Parke followed, and mainly by mistakes of Mrs Tuckey’s secured the game. The third, with Mrs Tuckey serving, showed Crisp missing an easy smash, but he atoned for this mistake by a fine poach. A double fault and missed volley by Crisp gave Parke and Co. the game after deuce had been called. The fourth game also ran to deuce, mainly by good volleying on the part of Mrs Tuckey and wild play by Parke, but Mrs Larcombe was as steady as a rock, and she won the game for her side. 4-0 Parke and Mrs Larcombe lead.

“In the fifth game Crisp made no mistake with his service, the first was fast and well-placed, and gave Mrs Tuckey opportunities at the net, of which she was not slow to avail herself, and Parke playing very badly, Crisp and his partner won the next two games. 4-3 Parke and Mrs Larcombe lead. The eighth game, Mrs Larcombe, by beautifully placed services and well backed up by her partner, won to love, and Crisp’s service game being captured, the set was won at 6-3.

“The second set was mainly notable for the falling off in Parke’s game; he was wild to a degree, and nothing seemed coming off for him. What was worse was his tactics. Mrs Larcombe was playing beautifully, and he did not give her enough to do. It was mainly by her exertions that the score reached 3-all, but with Parke playing worse and worse, and Crisp and Mrs Tuckey playing better and better, the latter won the next two games. They were at 15-love in the ninth game when a deplorable accident happened.

“A fairly deep and high lob went to Parke, who smashed it hard from the left-hand court towards the opposite sideline; Mrs Larcombe was close to the net, and the ball struck her with terrific force on the face. She did not fall, but seemed stunned for an instant, and it was soon obvious that she was seriously hurt. The game stopped, and Mrs Larcombe most pluckily continued standing on court and bathing her eye (which was injured) with water, but the damage was too serious to continue the game, and the players retired.

“The umpire, after a short delay, told the crowd that the match would be continued later, but further investigation proved that the injury was much too severe too allow of Mrs Larcombe continuing the match, or in playing any other match in this championship meeting. It was indeed a sad event, and cast a gloom over all subsequent proceedings.”
--

“Women’s All-Comers’ Final, Thursday, July 3.

“Dorothea Lambert Chambers has come into her own again; by her defeat of Winifred McNair she won the final round of the ladies’ singles, and on the day’s play she thoroughly deserved her victory. That in doing so she showed her super excellent form of two years ago we hesitate to say, but her game was good enough to dispose of any opposition that was encountered.

“Mrs McNair is a proverbially bad starter, and in this match she made no exception to her usual rule; throughout the first set she did not get going at all, as even when she had plenty of time to make the shot, time and again she hit the ball into the net or yards out of the court; but she did not always have much time, as Mrs Lambert Chambers was placing the ball with great accuracy from corner to corner, and varying these strokes with short-length, oblique drives. The pace was not very great, and Mrs McNair was often able to reach the ball and, strangely enough, on many occasions she was making the return better when hard pressed than when the stroke could be made in comparative leisure. The first set, owing to Mrs McNair’s bad start, was soon over, the score reading 6-0 in favour of Mrs Lambert Chambers.

“It was in the second set that the fight began; Mrs McNair’s ground shots improved out of all knowledge, and when she came to the net, and her judgement in picking out the right ball to come in on was very sound, she made some fine winning volleys. The games went with service until three-all was called, the fourth game with Mrs McNair serving being a tense affair, with the issue long in doubt; however, she secured it in the end by combined pluck and play, and then she secured the lead for the first time in the match at 4-3 with her service to follow; if only she could annex this she was in the happy position of holding a winning lead, and desperately she strove to secure it; she reached 40-30, and was in position for a winning volley.

“Mrs Lambert Chambers returned the ball, but it came within easy reach, and Mrs McNair, to her own evident disgust, ‘foozled’ the shot, the ball hit the net and the chance was lost. Desperately anxious to win this game she went all out for the two points necessary; twice she secured the ‘vantage, but on each occasion she was pulled back by her opponent, whose only trace of unsteadiness throughout the match occurred in the previous two games, and eventually the game – and what a game! – went to the ex-champion. After that it was all comparatively plain sailing for Mrs Lambert Chambers, the sea which had previously been ‘choppy’ calmed down, and with careful pilotage she reached port a popular winner.”
--

“Women’s doubles final. Friday, July 4.

“Dorothea Lambert Chambers and Charlotte Sterry looked to be winning this match easily against Winifred McNair and Dora Boothby, for the latter had a bad day and was no match for Mrs Lambert Chambers in baseline duels; neither did she provide her volleying partner with the necessary openings for securing a winning ace.

“Throughout the match Mrs Lambert Chambers and Mrs Sterry always looked to have the match in hand, and it was the hardest of hard luck that, after winning the first set at 6-4, and leading at 4-2, 40-15, in the second the regrettable accident to Mrs Sterry (referred to in ‘Varia’) compelled them to retire.”

From the “Varia” section of “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 10, 1913: “Poor Mrs Sterry! It was the hardest of hard luck to injure herself so seriously when, in partnership with Mrs Lambert Chambers, she had secured the first set in the final of the ladies’ doubles, and had a lead of 4-2 in the second. Here’s wishing her a speedy recovery.

“We understand that the precise injury is a torn tendon in the calf of the leg, and there is small hope of her playing again this season. We are glad to add that the injury is not causing much pain, though it is, of course, uncomfortable.”

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

Summary:

An early example of where seeding was needed. Larcombe comes through the toughest quarter, with former champ Sterry, (who she beats in round 3) and French clay court champ Broquedis both in the same section.

It was hoped the French sensation Suzanne Lenglen would make her Wimbledon debut this year, but her father felt she was too young. Besides, the 14 year old has never hit a ball on grass.

In an uninspiring final contested in intense heat Dorothea and Ethel both were conservative, waiting for mistakes rather than shooting for the tramlines. Chambers won through the long rallies to take her 7th Wimbledon title. It is a record that stands until 1938 (when Helen Wills broke it). Who knows how many more Wimbledons Chambers may have won had World war One not broken out weeks after this win.

A deadly curtain draws down on Europe. Lenglen will practice in the serenity of southern France, but most women will not hit a ball again until 1919. Rubber becomes a material for war rather than bouncing balls. American Elizabeth Ryan is in Russia when war alarms sound. She makes a dramatic escape on the last train from Russia into Germany. She had to sell all her possessions along the way as bribes except her trophy as Russian champion of 1914.

Wimbledon would not witness another Championships until 1919.

Summary:

A dramatic final, with 2 mps saved in the third. Earlier in the event some women walk out, protesting the Frenchwoman's short skirts.

One unusual match mixed partnership was that of Hope Crisp and Mrs Perrett. Hope played with an artificial limb, having lost a leg during the Great War.

Summary:

Dorothea Chambers returned to try and reclaim her crown, lost the previous year to the daring sensation of France, Madamoiselle Suzanne Lenglen. It was expected that Molla Mallory, an American by way of Norway, would give her a stiff fight in their semifinal. Molla put in a dismal performance though, her serve lacking any sting and 'her length was poor compared to that of Mrs Chambers' (ALT, page 263). Concentrating on Molla's weaker backhand side, Mrs Chambers racked up game after game. Mallory got her forehand going in the second set, but it was too little too late.

As expected she faced American Elizabeth Ryan in the All-Comers final for the right to challenge Suzanne. Ryan was favored by virtue of 2 wins earlier in the season over Mrs Chambers. At 2 all it looked to be anyone's match. Chambers hit with too much depth and pace however, and ran away with 8 consecutive games. Ryan finally won a game to 1-4, but it was her last gasp.

Despite high hopes for a repeat of the 1919 classic (10-8 4-6 9-7) it was a disappointing 6-3 6-0 rout. If anything Lenglen has improved, and now moves about the grass naturally. Suzanne kept Dorothea on the move constantly. She finished out the first set with elan, serving an ace. The second set was a total rout.

According to American Lawn Tennis Suzanne hit 15 winners to 4 for Chambers in set 1, and 14 to 3 in set two.

Gone are the floppy hat from last year. Lenglen has now adapted the bandeau, a sort of turban-like bandana around the head. She appeared in the stylish bandeau in colors as varied as lemon, orange, and heliotrope. The fashion soon spreads like wildfire, for she has become a fashion icon par excellence.

Summary:

The most exciting match for the women came in the quarterfinals. Hard hitting Molla Mallory has never played her best in England. This match is an exception, as she blitzes fellow American expat Elizabeth Ryan with a blitz of hard drives. A discombobulated Ryan can't get her 'chop and drop' game in gear, and Molla passes her at will when at net. A 6-0 set for Molla has the crowd agog, for only Lenglen beats Ryan like this.

'The American champion, however, eased at the start of the second set, and the lapse was fatal. Her opponet's service cramped her returns, and this opened the way for Miss Ryan, whose famous drop shots now came off repeatedly for numerous points. The California girl went ahead to 5-1, but Mrs Mallory braced, and her backhand passed when Miss Ryan came in on her service restored the balance and she pulled up to 4-5. Miss Ryan then stayed back and drove fierce chops to Mrs Mallory's backhand, taking the game and set. The next set was well contested, but Miss Ryan scored with perfect drop shots in the pinches after getting Mrs Mallory on the run. Miss Ryan's racuet, when she was at the net, seemed to have a hypnotic fascination for Mrs Mallory's returns. Running hard she made a supreme effort, getting back Miss Ryan's chops and drops to make it 4-5, but Miss Ryan's service settled the match, 6-4.' (American Lawn Tennis, pages 211-212)

In the All-Comer's final Ryan's heavily cut "chops" overwhelmed Satterthwaite, who was never able to employ her defensive game at all. The grass surface played right into Bunny Ryan's hands, for she loves the net.

The decisive score of the final led many to hope Ryan could put up a good fight in the Challenge Round versus the holder Suzanne Lenglen, the Maid Marvel of France. Ryan led 2 games to 1, but once Suzanne got used to the court it turned into a complete route. Lenglen reeled off 11 straight games.

In an early round doubles Mrs WM Haughton/Maud Jackson d. Peggy Dransfield/Norah Middleton 6-3 2-6 16-14. The final set was a record for women at this years event.

Summary:

A year of big changes. The site is moved from Worple Road to Church Road, the present facilities for "The Championships".

The overwhelming popularity of Lenglen is a major factor in the move, as crowds were packed to overflowing for all her matches. When people waited in line to see her it was said, "There's a Lenglen-line a winding".

The Challenge Round is finally abolished. Again, Suzanne was a factor, for by playing through more people had a chance to see her. A poll of players wanted to abolish it. 'Suzanne as champion, was consulted on the matter and she agreed to the change.'

The crowd for Suzanne's second round match vs. English heroine McKane set a record for the most people to view a match in England. Lenglen won the first set so easily at 6-1 that she didn't even have to hit a volley. In set 2 McKane led 3-0 before Lenglen fought back. At 4-4 there was "tremendous excitement" as Kitty had a break point, "but a perfect forehand down the line saved the game for Suzanne". The British home crowd urged Kitty on until she finally fell at 6-1 7-5.

In the quarters old foe Elizabeth Ryan extended the goddess in set two. A visibly tiring Suzanne eeked by at 8-6 to close it out.

One of the wettest Wimbledons on record, the weather delayed matters until the third Wednesday.

On Saturday of July 8 the final was held. An expectant crowd came to see if Molla could repeat her shock victory of 1921 in America. Demand was so intense that "spectators started queuing at dawn". Rain delayed play until 7pm. Both finalists agreed to go on rather than wait until Monday, as there was no Sunday play in those days. Mallory later complained about the late start, but only afterwards to the press.

At the unheard of time of 7:01 they went on. 35 minutes later Suzanne had regained total supremacy by destroying her rival 6-2 6-0. Rallies almost inevitably ended with Molla netting the ball or driving out after being run corner to corner. Despite reaching deuce several times in the second set Mallory could not capture a game.

Words were spoken at the net. When the New York Times asked Molla what transpired she said:

"We did not have a row, though a few words were exchanged. Suzanne said to me, 'Well, now you see that I was really ill when I played you in America last year.' I replied: 'You have only done to me today what I did to you when we met last year.' "I told her a few other things", added Mrs Mallory (July 13, 1922, p 16 of the New York Times).

Suzanne got in her own barb, rhetorically asking, "I think Miss McKane and Miss Ryan the better players, don't you?" (July 10, 1921, p1 of the New York Times).

In taking the doubles and mixed doubles as well Suzanne wins the triple.

Summary:

From the London 'Times', Saturday, July 7, 1923:

"Lawn Tennis – The Championships – Mlle Lenglen wins again

"From our Special Correspondent

"There was another perfect afternoon yesterday at Wimbledon and another large crowd. They saw Mlle Suzanne Lenglen pass to her fifth championship with serene assurance […]

"At the end of the final round of the Ladies' Championship the title remained in the firm keeping of the holder. Miss Kathleen McKane won two games from Mlle Lenglen in each of the two sets, and as she stood up to her for 37 minutes she earned some such recognition as a silver medal. Every now and then she hit clean and hard to the backhand line high up and scored a point decisively, but this stroke hardly once brought her the complementary volley which she had a right to expect. If Mlle Lenglen reached the ball, there would be a long low lob or a passing drive which found a clean passage. Miss McKane was not allowed to make much use of her best stroke – her volley; Mlle Lenglen's being what it was, it would have been suicide to go up.

"To look at Mlle Lenglen alone was to think her on the defensive; there seemed to be no aggressiveness in the unhurried sweep of her driving, and she appeared content that the ball should fall within such easy reach for her stroke; then one looked at Miss McKane and saw that she was running hard for the ball. Taking the hitter as the apex of a triangle, Miss McKane had to cover between any two of her strokes a base twice as wide as Mlle Lenglen's. Sooner or later she broke down under the relentless pressure.

"The first game went to Mlle Lenglen after rallies which were typical of the match. At the end of one long rally Miss McKane came up on a deep hit and could not quite reach the perfect backhand drive which she was required to intercept. This was a 'vantage game; in the next game Mlle Lenglen had worked up to the economical speed she was to maintain for the remainder of the match; in addition, she showed her suppleness of body in returning a net-cord and her coolness of mind in an unexpected lob.

"Five games to the good, Mlle Lenglen shaped a little carelessly at the last stroke of the sixth, and Miss McKane was accorded the well-earned relief of a game. Helped by two brave volleys, Miss McKane won the next game, and then Mlle Lenglen showed that she, too, could volley, and ran out.

"In the second game of the next set Miss McKane raised hopes of a struggle. She got in her smash at last, and although she missed another – the one easy chance she was allowed in the match – she got a bonus of a double fault and made it one-all. The fifth game she won to love with fine strokes. Mlle Lenglen retaliated with a trifle more width in her driving; Miss McKane fought her way twice to within a point of the last game; quickly Mlle Lenglen pulled her back, and before one realised that the Championship was decided both ladies were facing a platoon of photographers.

"What we like to see is the winning stroke made from a losing position, and this is the one aesthetic delight which Mlle Lenglen usually withholds from us. In direction and length her strokes are consistently perfect; but nine out of ten of them look easy to make – in the sense that, if they can be made at all, it is the most easy to make them in the position in which the ball finds her waiting.

"Most of her problems are solved by the perfection of her method before ever her racket comes forward. Her long arm will move inwards or outwards and up and down in response to any slight eccentricities of the bounce without any obvious movement of the body. With beginners the body is apt to be in the way; they are obviously tucked up as they strike; one cannot imagine Mlle Lenglen tucked up – it would be a contradiction in terms. Her body is never in the way; at the last moment all its supple power runs smoothly down her arm into the racket head as the ball is struck. She is never spasmodic; if compelled to retreat she can be seen – like Camilla – aiming her dart in flight; and it always strikes home."

Summary:

With the Olympic Games following soon after in Paris this Wimbledon attracted many foreign contestants. This was the first time 4 overseas women made the quarters.

Lenglen had pulled out of the French Nationals, spiking rumors she might skip Wimbledon. The organizers worry she might not come, for her matches bring in so many fans that only centre court or Court One will do for La Diva.

Lenglen glides through until the second set of her QF with doubles partner Liz Ryan. Elizabeth holds on, smashing her way out of difficulty at 5-5 and closing out the set at 8-6. "The crowd erupted." It is Lenglen's first set dropped since 1921. Ryan stays on the attack in the third, driving games to 3-4 before Lenglen wins it on what many considered a bad call. Many cheers follow the two as they leave the court.

Two days later she officially withdrew on doctor's advice-missing the chance to play Helen Wills for the first time. She also withdrew from the Olympic Games in Paris and does not enter another event for all of 1924.

Kitty Mckane takes advantage by winning a thrilling 3 set final over Wills. Helen barely fails to annex a Wimbledon crown on her first attempt. In her autobio 15-30 she says this was the first and last match she ever cried over losing.

In doubles Wightman and Wills prove impossible to beat. The final was contested under very windy conditions. Hazel lobbed to perfection despite the risks, and her tactics left Wills with many balls that the young American swated for outright winners. Covell served several double faults, one to lose the first set.

Summary
:

A record entry of 80 for ladies singles, and the first time seeding is used. German players are allowed to enter for the first time since World War One (still called the Great War in 1927); pretty young 17 year old Cilly Aussem is amoung those entered. Another young phenom is Bobbie Heine, also 17. Heine is upset by hard hitting Phoebe Watson in the 4th round.

Betting favorite Helen Wills loses a set to Gwen Sterry (daughter of 5-time champ Charlotte) in round one. At the time it was not noteworthy until one considers that Wills didn't lose another set for 6 years!

Heine and Peacock had beaten Ryan/Wills a few weeks back-hence their#1 seeding. Wills cannonball serves and returns combined with Ryan's volleys to overwhelm the South Africans. The only two games in set two for the South Africans came on Bobbie Heine's serve.

In the Mixed final the Godfree's had a set point in the opener. After losing that the fight went out of them and Ryan and Hunter ran away with the match. The last day of the Championships was a busy one for Miss Ryan, as she had to play the semis of the mixed before her two finals.

From the London 'Times', Monday, July 4, 1927:

"Lawn Tennis – The Finals at Wimbledon

"From our Lawn Tennis Correspondent

"At Wimbledon on Saturday the weather was threatening at 2 o'clock, but the rain held off to allow a huge crowd to enjoy an uninterrupted afternoon of lawn tennis. When all was over they must have realised for how much strength counts at the game some call 'pat-ball'. Henri Cochet won the men's championship and Miss Helen Wills the ladies'; and in both matches exhaustion had most to do with the defeat of the losers, Jean Borotra (the holder) and Señorita Lilí de Álvarez. […]

"Miss Helen Wills v. Señorita Lilí de Álvarez

"As a matter of fact, Miss Wills won twice as many games as Señorita de Álvarez, whom she beat 6-2, 6-4; but with her opponent pressing her harder and harder until – some five minutes from the end of the second set – Miss Wills fell behind at 4-3 with the loss of her service game, the final was what a final should be – a struggle. And it was a struggle between players who differed from one another in every way.

"Señorita de Álvarez stands for all that is jolly and gracious and gay and adroit in the game; she hits the ball because it is her pleasure; she is on the friendliest terms with it; and when she is exhausted at the end of a rally and gives it a half-petulant tap, the ball will still oblige her if it can.

"Miss Wills hits the ball because it is her duty, and 'the ball no question makes of Ayes and Noes'; she does not play as if she liked it; she might be a priestess passionlessly dispatching the victim with a deep thrust of the sacrificial knife. She confines herself to attempting the strokes and methods that she has mastered. She won with length, power, concentration, and a great patience. Direction might fail at times; length and power never. She seldom attempted a stroke except the deliberate drive for the most part backhanded, and one reason that she won is the drive is a safer stroke than the half-volley, to which – happily for spectators – Señorita de Álvarez is addicted.

"One reason that Señorita de Álvarez lost – when with her equipment she might conceivably have won – is that she compromised; she played the half-volley, the less reliable stroke, without allowing the element of luck a chance to declare itself on her side; she met the ball with a full racket so as to push it back on the line on which it had come. She was leaving it to Miss Wills to break down, but on Saturday the ball met a drive which, for its speed and depth, was mechanically the safest stroke of the meeting. Last year against Mrs Mallory she showed that she could hit the backhanded half-volley hard down the line into the forehand corner. That stroke – being made across the flight – is more dangerous, and it is suicidal to hit it gently, but it wins if it comes off. Perhaps Miss Wills was hitting too hard for her to attempt it. Neither lady tried for the forehand pocket throughout the match.

"Miss Wills's Cool Driving

"Señorita de Álvarez, as against Miss Elizabeth Ryan, needed some time to get her eye in, and Miss Wills, who began fully equipped, took three games methodically. The concession of this lead might decide the course of the match; for, on this year's play, Miss Wills, while irresistible when using her big guns, has refrained from bringing them into action until she could afford a few errors in range.

"The fourth game was won by Señorita de Álvarez; and when in the next she went on to lead at 30-40, the issue was agreeably doubtful. But Miss Wills understands first principles. Without haste she sent down an untakable service into the backhand corner; and she resumed her commanding position by taking the game: 4-1.

"Señorita de Álvarez, her touch now found, won the next game and was once more put back by Miss Wills's potent weapon – the service. The set ended with a long rally in which both players hit the tape. That rally was a reminder of what Señorita de Álvarez can do when her luck is in. But it was not in. That first game [of the second set] – which it was essential for her to win – was lost in the most costly way possible. She fought her way up against the service from 40-0 to 'vantage, and to 'vantage once more after it had been gained by Miss Wills; but the stronger, deeper, cooler striking won the final point, and Miss Wills quietly took the next game, as it were on the rebound: 2-0.

"She went on to 40-15; and then there failed her for the first time in the match her Wildingeseque capacity to hold on to an advantage. Señorita de Álvarez won that third game and then the next. In this last she had been making Miss Wills run; 2-all – anything might happen. Her service helped Miss Wills to the fifth, and without it she lost the sixth.

"Then came a couple of games of long rallies – games that explain the stories about queues. The score was level when they were finished, but Miss Wills had won the Championship; her power was matched by the deftness of her opponent; but she could not hold on longer without losing her form. She was forced to concede a seventh game of many 'vantages, but she exacted her price. In the next there was an amazing rally in which Señorita de Álvarez flew up and down and across the court, playing all her graceful strokes, while Miss Wills drove and went on driving hard and deep until she had her way. At the end of it Señorita de Álvarez drooped over her racket trying to get her breath, while the warrior maid opposite took up her serving place and stood with her hands by her sides still as a caryatid – the only still person in the cheering crowd.

"'Giving herself away; didn't ought to show she's done,' was the comment of a critical sportsman, as Señorita de Álvarez made her way back panting to her place. But no ring craft would have availed her; she could struggle no more. Miss Wills won the next game to love, and then the match. When it ended Señorita de Álvarez expended her remaining breath in a long O – (omega); then she paid her opponent the compliment of hitting the ball she carried high into the air, and the further compliment of not running to shake hands, but walking."

The New York Times

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

Summary:

A record 6 of 8 foreign quarterfinalists and the first semis without a British female.

Akhurst of Australia is solid as a rock. The New York Times reporter joked that, "Miss Akhurst should spell her name Miss Accurate, for she seldom makes a mistake." (July 3, p 14)

Alvarez played the match of her life in routing the steady Daphne Akhurst in a 6-3 6-0 semifinal. She made only 7 errors the whole match, 3 on double faults. Wills pounded Ryan into submission 6-1 6-1 in the other semi, serving up 4 aces.

Wills was a tad off form in the final. Nonetheless she easily took the first set 6-2. At that stage the worm turned, and when the Senorita led 3-0 in the 2nd set a stir went through the gallery. The streak took all of Lili's reserves however. Several days illness due to a cold earlier in the week left the Spaniard without much reserve energy. Wills swept the next six games and the match in a contest watched by King George and Queen Mary. Queen Helen only lost 18 games in 6 matches.

Despite the score fans were enthralled with the backhand half volleys of Alvarez, often taken on the rise right after the ball bounced. Hundreds waited outside Centre Court in the vain hopes of getting a seat inside. The queue for standing room tickets started to form at midnight, with young lads paid to keep places in the line.

So clear was Wills victory that other topics raised interest in the aftermath of her dominance. There was speculation of rematch with Suzanne Lenglen for charity. Wills was open to the idea pending USTA approval. Another rumor suggested she would be traveling to Australia to compete.

The New York Times


Special Cable to THE NEW,YORK TIMES. "Mrs. Bundy Meets Ball Boy of 25 Years Ago and Keeps Promise by Giving Him a Racquet." New York Times (1923-Current file): 11. Jul 05 1929. ProQuest. Web. 26 Sep. 2016 .

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

Summary:

Only 2 of 8 seeds are British. As seeds around her fall Helen Wills is as predictable as ever, giving up only 16 games in 6 matches. South African Bobbie Heine got the most games (6) in their quarterfinal.

The women clearly had cause for some complaint, as the 1st women's match on Centre Court didn't take place until the the 3rd Round on the first Wednesday of play, when Lili Alvarez faced Mrs Serpieri, better known as Diddie Vlasto. A crowd of 5,000 overwhelmed the grounds trying to watch Helen Wills on the grounds.

Two outside matches capture the headlines in the round of 16.

One woman who garnered much interest was May Bundy. She was Wimbledon champ in 1905 and 1907 as May Sutton and amazingly makes the quarters at the age of over forty, 22 years after her last appearance, upsetting #4 seed Eileen Bennett. This is probably the longest gap between quality finishes in a major. "A great crowd deserted the Centre Court match" to run to the outside courts as Mrs Bundy toppled #4 seed Eileen Bennett in a 3 set thriller. May trailed 1-4 in the last set, winning 3-6 6-4 6-4. Watching in the stands was May's 9 year daughter Dodo, one of five children of the Californian matriarch. Eileen's serve went away towards the end.

Another 4th round surprise was the ousting of #2 seed Lili Alvarez. Lili has been the finalist here 3 years running (1926-1928). Mrs Mary McIquham, "hard hitting but virtually unknown" was the New York Times description, won and was the biggest surprise quarterfinalist. "Everyone had expecged the colorful Spanish girl to meet Helen Wills in the final, but neither the crowd nor the senorita had reckoned on the red headed Englishwoman, whose terrific forehand drives brought her to triumph." Alvarez was visibly annoyed at losing the first, fought back to tie matters, then "went to pieces" in the third, wildly overhitting or not trying to chase down McIlquham's bullet-like forehands. Mary was especially effective hitting down the lines. After winning the English lady had to fight her way back to the clubhouse through a mass of people cheering here and offering congratulations. For the second time that day English spectators had abandoned Centre to flock to a ladies match.

The quarterfinals saw the end of Mrs Bundy's dream run. English girl Joan Ridley beats the woman old enough to be her mother 6-3 6-2. May had run out of gas and her play lacked the pep of earlier rounds. An unusual story highlights just how long ago May was at Wimbledon and how keen her memory is. When buying a newspaper she looked at the seller and said, "I believe your name is Wiggins." "That's right ma'am", he replied in a cockney accent. Mrs Bundy told him to wait and ran back to the locker room. She brought him back an autographed tennis racquet. Wiggins as ballboy in 1904 when May first won here. At the time she promised him a signed tennis racquet on her return. The two hadn't met in 25-yet incredibly May still recalled the incident and the name!

The less said about the semis the better. Elsie Goldsack led Helen Wills 2-1, then dropped 11 consecutive games. Jacobs easily disposed of Ridley to quickly end already slim British hopes. The loudspeakers around Centre picked up the sound of shots-it was noticed Helen Wills shots carried a higher sound than the other three ladies.

In the final Wills obliterates 'Little Helen' Jacobs in a mere 40 minutes. Jacobs made fine volleys at times to force Wills to run, but for the most part 'Queen Helen' stood right on top of the baseline and had Jacobs on a string with her backhand. Wills shot out to 5-1 in set one when Jacobs put up a great fight, saving six sets points. On the 7th Wills came in and put away a crosscourt volley. The next set was closer yet still lacking drama as to the fianal result. On match point Jacobs sent a volley yards over the back line.

Summary:

Defaults and retirementsplayed a big role at theChampionships this year from the start. Lili de Alvarez, the 3 time finalist, and British star Phoebe Watson both withdraw from singles before the tournament commences. Both hope to play mixed doubles and enter the draws-both default. Watson is having throat issues and Lili swollen tendons.

All of this makes Helen Wills-Moody an even firmer favorite to win. Helen Wills-Moody brooks no opposition, rolling over the field in devastating fashion. Her sternest foe is the French Simone Mathieu, who manges 5 games in 6-3 6-2 in a semifinal defeat.

It was the other semifinal that produced fireworks. Tiny Cilly Aussem has bloomed this year under the coaching of Bill Tilden. After losing the first set she blitzed Ryan 6 games to nil. The winning of the middle chapter tired her however, and things were tied at 4 all when a shock ending occurred.

Serving at 0-30, Cilly slipped and fell on the turf after an exhausting rally. 0-40. Limping to the baseline, Aussem tossed the ball up to serve and collapsed in a dead faint. The German is carried off court on a stretcher. This incident also took her out of the mixed doubles, where she was the #1 seed with Bill Tilden.

Elizabeth Ryan came on court for the final flashing a big smile. Old "Chop and Drop" has been playing here since 1912. She hauls off doubles trophies every year, yet can't grab the singles trophy. Today is no exception. Helen Wills-Moody has too much power for Ryan to employ her tactical game.

'Her only effective weapon was a tantalizing drop shot which hopped over the net and then fell almost dead while Mrs Moody had to rusg from the baseline in order to retrieve it. These were shots, however, tht even Borotra or Allison couldn't have saved, and at match point Mrs Moody-with a sense of humor nobody expected of her-quietly gave Miss Ryan a dose of her own medicine by sending over a brilliant drop shot herself.'

'..So Mrs Moody is still Queen of Wimbledon-a queen more commanding, majestic than ever.

Wills and Elizabeth Ryan won the doubles as expected, but British fans had a fresh face to cheer in Sarah Palfrey and partner Edith Cross. "Little" Sarah combines a pretty face and shapely form with exciting volleys at net. Wearing a flame colored bandeau, on one rapid volley exchange Sarah hit Elizabeth Ryan in the face with the ball. In the second set the steady Edith Cross evened the score up at 5 apiece. 'The crowd went wild' wrotethe New York Times. The young upstarts were poised to tie matters at 8 all with the crowd cheering them on all the way. The last game went to deuce, but errors by Sarah ended things.

Ryan had a grand Wimbledon. In winning the mixed with Jack Crawford she took two out of three titles. Only the singles eluded her. She was a bit lucky to reach the final, having been down 6-5 and a couple points from defeat vs The Swiss Miss Lolette Payot in round four.

The British had their worst ever Wimbledon. Ermyntrude Harvey fainted near the umpire chair at 2-4 in the third vs Mrs McIlquham in a match of long rallies. Just before dropping Harvey declared, "I cannot go on." She had to default in all three events.

The following is a full report on the final-From the London 'Times', Saturday, July 5, 1930:

"Lawn Tennis – The Championships – America's Day

"Yesterday was the Fourth of July, and the large number of Americans who made their way to the All England Lawn Tennis Courts at Wimbledon found much comfort there for their absence on that day of days from home, from the Stars and Stripes, the exploding of crackers, the noise and bustle of parades, and the hundred-per-cent enthusiasm for country and hometown.

"The American women's champion, Mrs Helen Wills Moody, proved she was still peerless among women players, and won the Championship at Wimbledon for the fourth time in succession […] Mrs Moody's right to the title is complete and undisputed. No one has made anything of a challenge against her this year, and Miss Elizabeth Ryan yesterday failed as simply as any of the others who had gone before. Had she been playing as she did some years ago, she might have employed her cunning and experience to some purpose, but it availed nothing against one who was mistress of the situation right from the start and always called the tune.

"No present-day player seems to have any prospect of overcoming Mrs Moody, for nearly all of them try to play in the same hard-hitting way. Until they can learn to use their heads as well as their arms, and to realise that mere power and force are not everything, they will not meet with much success. A more complete all-round game, in which strokes are constantly being varied, is necessary above all things. Young players are frequently so much coached that they lose all initiative. They play by the book, by the written or spoken word, they do not think or see for themselves, they have little confidence in themselves and their own powers of thinking and foresight, and they are afraid to strike out on a trail of their own. There will be a new champion when that is done. […]

"Mrs Moody's Victory

"Miss Ryan made but a slight resistance to Mrs Moody. She had come on the court prepared to vary her play in such a way as to keep Mrs Moody running, but she was seldom allowed to settle down and only at rare intervals could she do as she had planned. It was Mrs Moody who piped while Miss Ryan danced, and Miss Ryan got only two games in each set. She started well to take the first of all in which Mrs Moody was serving. She had a short return shot just dropping over the net on the far side to which neither Mrs Moody nor even Jean Borotra could have got up.

"That was only a brief tale, however, and Mrs Moody was soon in her stride. It was an easy stride, too, for she stood almost motionless in the centre of the baseline hitting strong and deep to the far corners with almost monotonous regularity, and Miss Ryan was made to run with energy from side to side in an endless and fruitless chase. That was as much as she could do, and she was early in the match seen to be tiring. She had a chance in the fourth game with only one point required, and hit out when up at the net with Mrs Moody at her mercy.

"She did better in the following game and won by getting Mrs Moody's service back with the same gentle returns. But that was all she could do in that set. An occasional well-placed and well-judged shot won a point, but more often they failed to baffle Mrs Moody, who got up to drive them far from Miss Ryan's reach.

"Miss Ryan started very feebly in the second set and lost a game as quickly as it could be lost. The second, however, came her way, two of her drop shots finding Mrs Moody far away and unable to get there in time. Mrs Moody, however, was soon back in the lead in the third game. Then Miss Ryan made her last despairing effort, and in doing so strove to quickly get up to the net after her service and was foot-faulted, for the linesmen yesterday seemed to have suddenly discovered that many players do foot-fault. That upset her calculations a little, and though she did contrive to get near to the net at times it was small profit, for Mrs Moody had the means of stopping that kind of thing with fine drives down the side of the court.

"Mrs Moody then began to serve at her best, and a love game followed – the fifth. Miss Ryan came back at that and won to love on her service, Mrs Moody being rather weak in her returns on the backhand. That was all, for Mrs Moody went straight away to win. In the last game Miss Ryan made one of her short shots; Mrs Moody got it back and Miss Ryan hit out. Then, to show that she too was an adept at a short shot, Mrs Moody made a stop volley that just fell over the net, and won."

Summary:

Wills Moody does not come to Europe this year, leaving the women's field wide open.

The first all-German final in Grand Slam history.

The finalists engaged in "pat-ball" or "stonewalling" (today's moonballing). As the match groaned on some spectators got up to go have tea. Hilde was so worn out (both women had blisters on thier feet before the final) she sank down to her knees afterwards. Scheduling played its part in the poor final, as it was moved up a day to accomodate the injury of male finalist Frank Shields, who ended up defaulting the next day anyway. With two wins in majors for 1931 Cilly Aussem becomes a national heroine in Germany.

Lili de Alvarez shocks social propriety by playing at Wimbledon in shorts on June 24.

A.T. Price of Australia is the first female foreign qualifier in the main draw.

Lottie Dod speaks out:

Dismayed at the poor British showing at Wimbledon which resulted in an All-German Ladies Final, Lottie Dod suggested the English women played far too many tournaments and were stale and lacking in energy. Their services in particular took too much out of them and they cannot last for 3 sets. They cannot keep a good length ball and have no disguise – hence the interminable rallies. They are never encouraged to adopt the ‘carpet –beating’ grip such as Helen Wills possesses and which Lottie herself used. “Personally, I love an opponent very dearly who sent me a slow ball with a slight cut on it” but unfortunately the English ladies lack the energy to do much with it and cant cope with the court dimensions which are too wide for a woman. Lottie also took a shot at Suzanne Lenlgen saying, “Even Mlle Lenglen only volleyed in a Single when the rally drew her to the net and she played mostly at the back of the court.” Our ladies are feeble at the kill, a calm mind and steady eye being non-existent – mostly. “It was galling to see our girls, with better styles and strokes than most of the invaders, not even gaining a place among the last four in the Singles and I feel very strongly indeed that audible remarks round the court should be sternly repressed – In my day I never heard remarks like that.” Finally she took a swing at the tennis reporters “Is it not time to discourage the tendencies of modern newspaper writers to pen articles describing ‘fine dark eyes and rosebud mouths? – extremely ill-bred to dare to do it. (Letter to the Times)
