1909 results

1909

Summary:

There are rumors that a team of English ladies will come to Newport or that May Sutton will lead an American team to Wimbledon. Unfortunately this early interest in a female version of the Davis Cup does not become reality.

The two dominant women of the aught decade do not compete at Wimbledon or the US Nationals. Dorothea Lambert Chambers gives birth to a son in June and is practicing by October, but it is not until 1910 that she reenters tournament competition. May Sutton skips the US Nationals again, and does so despite playing on the east coast later in the summer.

A Review of the English season from the London Times

Among the lady players the standard of form was exceptionally low-lower, probably, than it has ever been before. The ranks have seriously thinnned of late years, and Mrs Sterry, who, owing to the effects of illness, was unable to defend her title, was the last straw. Among those who retained first honours were more or less divided among Miss Boothby and Mis Morton, though the former, as the winner of the championship, must be given precedence. The All-England defeat was revenged at Redhill, on the other hand, Miss Morton's conquest by Miss Coles at Hythe seems to show a flaw that confirms the verdict at Wimbledon. Mrs Stery, owing to illness, was unfortunately unavble to defend her title as lady champion; she came back to tournament play at the close of the season, but was obviously short of practice, and was beaten by Mrs Tuckey at Brighton, while at Eastbourne, after getting the better of Miss Morton, was beaten by Miss Boothby.
Of the other lady players Miss Garfit made the best figure, and succeeded in retaining all three of the championships-Welsh, Scottish, and Irish-that she created a record by winning last year.

"Lawn Tennis." Times [London, England] 24 Sept. 1909: 19.

Boothby won at 9 titles: Surbiton, East Croyden, Beckenham, Wimbledon, Newcastle, Folkestoe, Chichester, Brighton, and Eastbourne.

Morton won at least 6 titles: Leicester, Gipsy, Redhill, Saxmundham, Colchester, and Felixstowe.

Re: 1909 results

Week of January 4-10


Jan 6 (article from the NYT) Sutton May Play Abroad
Early in the year May Sutton is interviewed about going to Wimbledon. "Indeed, I would like to go to Wimbledon next summer. The trip would be awfully jolly and I would like to go, but don't you know those English tennis girls ought to come to Califonia for a change. Not one of them has ever been to the United States, and England is such a sticky, old place compared with America. Still, I will go if urged sufficiently."

May's reluctance to travel will continue in 1909. She skips not only Wimbledon, but the US Nationals as well. It is rumored that she does not enter an event unless her expenses are paid. One wonders if her words "I will go if urged sufficiently" hint at this.

From the ‘Rand Daily Mail’, 28 January 1909:

South African Tennis Championships

Transvaal honours won by a lady – Mrs George Washington scores

From our own Correspondent

The successor of Miss M. Kelly as the lady singles champion proved, as anticipated, to be Mrs George Washington, of the Transvaal. When Miss A. Edwards defeated Miss Kelly many predicted her easy success, but in a very fine game the Transvaal crack won 6-2 7-9 6-4, and deserved to. It was a case of a baseline player against one good at the net, and, as generally happens, the latter won. Miss Edwards is a splendid player, who knows not defeat, and her pluck more than skill enabled her to draw level after going down easily in the first set.

In the decider, however, Mrs Washington used better judgement and ventured up to the net on all occasions possible, and her overhead work and strong cross court volleying gave her a victory that was in every way well merited. She is scarcely Miss Kelly’s superior, but can always be depended on to give the latter a big game.

-----

late January, Berlin, Berlin, Germany (Indoors on Wood)

FI: Countess Clara Schulenburg d. Countess Arco 6-0 6-2

This was the first edition of a new indoor tournament in Berlin. It was not the German Covered Courts Championships, which would be inaugurated in Bremen in 1911.

SF: Marcus/Moore d Fish/Fish 9-7 6-4

FI: Erna Marcus/Elisabeth Moore d. Louise Hammond/Marie Wagner 3-6 6-4 12-10

Draw note: The NYT usually refers to Moore as "Elizabeth" rather than Elisabeth. Her nickname is also "Bessie". I am going with Elisabeth as it her listed name at the International Hall of Fame.

Elisabeth "Bessie" Moore plays 91 games over 4 matches on the second day. Luckily for her she wins them all in straight sets.

On day three Wagner wins her semi in singles, then goes out ot contest the doubles final. Hammond and Wagner were several times only two points away from winning. Marcus is the stronger pair of the winning team-Moore still looked tired from her marathon day two schedule.

FI: Jessie Tripp (GB)/Arthur Wallis Myers (GB) d. Alice Greene (GB)/Major Ritchie (GB) 1-6 6-3 6-3

This year on the Cote d' Azur proved to be unseasonably cold, windy, and rainy. Ladies were wrapped in furs and blankets before coming onto court, and spectators huddled together for warmth. Balls were late in arriving from London, so balls were borrowed from local clubs. The very fact that British balls were normally used for an event in France speaks volumes about English domination of this era.

Only the German Countess Schulenburg threatens English primacy, going down in a tough 3 set final to Greene. Alice Greene is making her debut on the Riviera played steadily throughout and her forehand drive across the court was most effective.

The Countess "carries off the silver platter" by winning here for the third time.

SF: Jessie Tripp (GB)/Arthur Wallis Myers (GB) d. Ruth Winch (GB)/Friedrich Rahe (Ger) 6-2 6-1

MX: Countess Clara Schulenburg (Ger)/Laurie Doherty (GB) d. Jessie Tripp (GB)/Arthur Wallis Myers (GB) 6-1 7-5

Mrs Winch scratched owing to indisposition (les escargots!?!). This caused much disappointment as Mrs Winch is at her best on these ‘sand’ courts. Countess Schulenburg meanwhile proved irresistible in her match against Miss Tripp finding the side lines with great regularity. Warm weather finally arrives after a 3 week cold snap.
