The men’s and women’s events were played together, although there were no women's matches on feb 21 and 22. Meyer's loss was consideered an upset, as the the English woman from Sussex had given May Sutton a good tussle in Enlgand the previous year. The 3 Preliminary Round matches advanced players to the first round-a de facto quarterfinal.
In the final Moore "used her tricks of changing her pace and varying her game" to throw her younger hard hitting foe from Hamilton Grange out of rhythm.
Draw notes: Elsie Little's brother Raymond is captain of the US Davis Cup team.
The Times has no scores or results for the women's doubles.
