1909 results



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.

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.

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

FI: Countess Clara von der 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.

February 1- ???? Nice Club Championship,Nice, France

FI: Rosamund Salusbury d Mlle Gondoin two sets to none.

According to Wright and Dotson the field was large but not as "classy" as in years past.

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 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.


February 14-???? Championships of the Italian Riviera, San Remo, Italy (Clay)

CR: May Sutton (holder) d. Hazel Hotchkiss 6-2 6-3

MX: May Sutton/Simpson Sinasbaugh d. Ethel Bruce/Thomas Bundy 6-8 6-3 6-2

This was one of the earliest meetings between May Sutton and Hazel Hotchkiss, the two best American women players of the pre-First World War period. Initially, May Sutton had the upper hand in their confrontations. May receives a gold enameled belt buckle and belt as a prize.


February 22-27, Monte Carlo Championships, Monte Carlo, Monaco (Clay)
Venue: Condamine Courts

1R : Alice Greene (GB) d. Jessie Tripp (GB) 6-0 7-5
1R: A Hulbert d. Mrs Webster 7-5 6-2


SF: Greene d. Mrs H Munro (GB) 6-0 6-4
SF: Countess Clara von der Schulenburg (Ger) d. Rosamund Salusbury (GB) 8-6 6-3

FI: Alice Greene (GB) d. Countess Clara von der Schulenburg (Ger) 4-6 6-2 6-4

Mixed Doubles

SF: Jessie Tripp (GB)/Arthur Wallis Myers (GB) d. Countess Clara Schulenburg (Ger)/Laurie Doherty (GB) 2 sets to 1.

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.

MX: Countess Clara Schulenburg (Ger)/Laurie Doherty (GB) d. Jessie Tripp (GB)/Arthur Wallis Myers (GB) 6-4 6-3

Scheduled to start on March 8 but delayed one day by rain. The weather here affects the numbers coming out to watch-with slim spectators the norm. It also delays the start at the Beau Site.

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


Circa March 15-20, South Australian Championships, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia (Grass)

FI: Countess Clara Schulenburg (Ger) d. Ruth Winch (GB) default (ill)

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.


March 27-April 3, Métropole Hotel International, Cannes, France (Clay)
Venue: Metropole Hotel

Singles (Draw=7)

FI: Alice Greene (GB) d. Betty Nutcombe-Quicke (GB) 6-0 6-2

April 26-May 1, British Covered Courts Championships, London, England (Indoors on Wood)

1R: Madeline O’Neill d. E. Bosworth 6-4 6-1
1R: Aurea Edgington-bye

SF: Boothby d. Aitken 6-0 6-0
SF: O’Neill d. Edgington 6-2 6-3

FI: Dora Boothby d. Madeline O’Neill 6-1 6-3

MX: E Bosworth/Friedrich Rahe (Ger) d. Beryl Tulloch/DP Rhodes 10-8 6-1

No challenge round as holder Dorothea Lambert Chambers (pregnant) does not defend her title. Mixed holders Gladys Lamplough and Anthony Wilding also fail to defend their title.

Mrs O’Neill is at her best in a mixed double where steadiness is the essential quality in the lady. In singles her game is rather wanting in variety. It was only In realizing that she must keep the ball to Miss Bosworth’s backhand that she soon finished the match. Against Miss Edgington she showed off a more severe forehand drive keeping her opponent on the defensive until she gained the inevitable short return. There is a very modern tendency for the ladies to hasten to the net as soon as the service is delivered which has the lawn tennis authorities exercising their minds. Still it was interesting to see these ladies serving from about 3 feet behind the baseline although the disadvantages of this method clearly outweigh the advantages. In the final Mrs O’Neill met a stronger player in Miss Boothby but made a gallant fight of it. Many of the rallies were well contested until Miss Boothby seized an opportunity of applying an effective diagonal forehand drive as well as scoring with several neat drop shots. Mrs O’Neill has no idea of a backhand stroke.

Entry not as large as in 1908-no preliminary round. On the first day the first two rounds were played.

On her debut at this tournament Hazel Hotchkiss won not only the singles title, but also the doubles and mixed doubles titles. In the challenge round Hazel humiliates the defending champ with net play. Hazel lost only 6 points in the first set. It it suggested that in the second the Californian deliberately hit to Maud's good side (the forehand) so Barger-Wallach could salvage some honor with some good rallies and a game. Hazel was the favorite in any case, but a recent illness meant that Barger-Wallach was far below her usual form.

Boothby wins her lone grand slam--serving 16 double faults in the final!. Edgington upsets 6 time Wimbledon champ Hillyard in round one. Norweijian Molla Bjurstedt is the only foreign entry in her first Wimbledon. She will return in 1920 as the highly regarded American Molla Mallory, emigrating to the US and marrying during the 1st World War.

Miss Morton had a very stiff struggle with Miss J Tripp. Miss Boothby playing more decisively than usual defeated Miss Greene, the latter only showing flashes of her best form. Miss Garfit was hard pressed by Miss B Tulloch, a left hander with a sweeping drive but was a shade more steady. Miss Morton came close to defeat against Mrs Winch who has accounted for many formidable opponents in the past. In this match the courts were wet and she was hitting the heavy balls with more confidence than Miss Morton. However Miss Morton, always plucky, held on helped by the better of the luck. In the Semi Finals Miss Garfit, making her first appearance in a centre court singles made no more than a decent resistance to Miss Boothby while Miss Morton completely outplayed Mrs Edgington. In the final Miss Boothby’s most efficacious weapon was a low, hard, heavily cut drive to her opponent’s backhand and she showed more command of the ball than Miss Morton who was forced to scrape up many shots. Miss Boothby was very useful also at the net, although the match was practically a back-line one from start to finish. Miss Morton took to serving underhand with cut half way through the match but with very little gain.

Chambers is absent from the championships due to the birth of her first child in June

Here is Boothby's description of her win (from the Chambers book):

Without doubt my most exciting match was the final last year at Wimbledon. In every player's heart there must be a faint hope that one day she may win the All England Championship. At least it has always been in mine.

From Christmas and all through the spring my family and friends had dinned into my ears that now was my chance, and if I did not win this year I never would. Only when I was leading one set up and 2-love in the second did all these things flash across my mind. I suddenly got nervous. Oh, the misery of it! I served double fault after double fault (I learnt afterwards that I gave away sixteen points in this way), and my friends told me that it was a relief to them when my service went over the net at all, however slowly. My opponent, Miss Morton, caught up, won the set 6/4, and led me 4/2 in the final set. All this time I had been fighting hard to regain confidence. At last my nerve came back--I was determined to win, and, only after a very great effort, just succeeded in capturing the Championship with the narrow margin of 8/6 in the final set.

It was not until I had finished and had come off the court that I realized how very excited I had been, and how relieved I was when it was all over. Only those who have had experience can know how exhausting it is to concentrate one's whole thoughts and efforts, without cessation,for an hour or more. Fortunately you do not feel the strain until afterwards, when it does not matter, and then you can look back with very great pleasure and satisfaction on a hard-won fight.

Re: 1909 results

First half of July

June 17-July 5*, California State Championships, San Rafael, California, US (Hard)

Singles (Draw=8)

1R: May Sutton d B. Howitt 6-0 6-0
1R: Miss Mason d Zora Roberts 6-2 6-0
1R: May Cromer** d Mrs Fletcher 6-2 6-1
1R: Hazel Hotchkiss d Mrs Niemeyer 6-3 6-0

SF: M. Sutton d. Mason 6-0 6-0
SF: F. Sutton d. Cromer 6-1 6-1

FI: May Sutton d. Florence Sutton 6-0 6-0

CR: May Sutton d. Hazel Hotchkiss (holder) 6-4 6-1

*Wright and Ditson gives dates of June 16-19 for this event, but also states that the ladies challenge round match was on July 5.
**Wright and Ditson lists this player as "Comer" and not "Cromer". As Mark also has a first name I am keeping it Cromer at present.

The largest crowd ever seen in California comes out to see May vs Hazel. Hotchkiss thrilled her supporters by getting to 4-4 before failing near the end of the set. Though attacking all the way she often lacked steadiness at key moments, "Falling down on many comparatively easy kills."


July 1-3, Mid-Kent Championships, Maidstone, Kent, England (Grass)

FI: Rosamund Salusbury d. Geraldine Ramsey 6-4 6-3

MX: Mildred Coles/Douglas W. Kitching d. Mrs Croneen/E. Annett 6-4 6-2


July 1-3, Sheffield and Hallamshire, South Yorkshire, England (Grass)

FI: Katherine Clegg d. Bertha Holder 6-4 5-7 7-5

SF: May Sutton d. Florence Sutton 6-1 6-0
SF: Ethel Sutton Bruce d. Alice Scott default

FI: May Sutton d. Ethel Bruce 6-1 6-2

DF: Mrs E Hickman/May Sutton d. Mary Browne/Ethel Bruce 6-4 6-4


ended July 5, Great Neck, NY, US

FI: Mrs FF Phillips d. Mrs CJ Laing 6-2 3-6 6-4


July 3-10, East Jersey Tournament, Elizabeth, New Jersey, US

FI: Marie Wagner d. Edith Handy 6-4 6-3

DF: Marie Wagner/Emily Weaver d. Gwendolyn Rees/Elizabeth Bunce 6-4 7-5

MX: Maud Garfit/Walter Rawley d. RV Salusbury/Evan Gwynne Evans 6-1 6-8 7-5


July 5-10, Leicestershire Championships*, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, England (Grass)

FI: Winifred Longhurst d. Kathleen Clements 6-2 6-2

It appears that at this point in time the Leicestershire Championships events were actually held during the Ashby-de-la-Zouch tournament rather than at the Leicester tournament itself.


July 5-10, North London Championships (Gipsy Open)*, London, England (Grass)

FI: Agnes Morton d. Mabel Parton 8-6 6-0

* In what was a very rainy season, several prizes were divided at this tournament.


July 5-10, Liberton, Edinburgh, Scotland (Clay)

FI: Mary Curtis-Whyte d. E.L.G. Henderson 6-0 6-1


July 5-10, Epsom, Surrey, England (Grass)

Venue: Atlanta Athletic Club

CR: Hildegard Turle d. May Monroe (holder) 9-7 6-2

SF: Gladys Lamplough d Miss Sugden 4-6 7-5 6-3

FI: Gladys Lamplough d. Margaret Bucknill 7-5, 6-2

Mrs Lamplough's first event in 1909. Mrs Lamplough usually finds time in the winter to practice in the Riviera. Unable to do this in 1908-9, her game suffers from a lack of confidence

She is down 1-5 in the second. at 4-5 the game goes to deuce 10 or 12 times before Gladys wins through. She writes in Lawn Tennis for ladies that this match fortified her with confidence moving forward.


July 14-17, Leamington, Warwickshire, England (Grass)

FI: Mabel Parton d. Winifred Longhurst 10-8 6-1

MX: Mabel Parton/Friedrich W. Rahe (Ger) d. B. Lloyd/ Stanely Doust (Aus) 6-3 5-7 7-5

Venue: Kansas City Athletic Club

FI: Virginia Robertson d. Evelyn Seavey 6-2 7-5

DF: Grace Lawrence/Virginia Roberston d. Miss Dickey/Miss Hacker 6-2 6-1

This was the inaugural edition of the Missouri Valley Championships tournament.


July 10-19 Illinois State Championships, Illinois, US (Grass)
Venue: Aztec Country Club

CR: Miriam Steever d Carrie Neely (holder) 6-8 6-1 6-4

DF: Edith Hoyt/Miriam Steever d Louise Phillips/Mrs Hayden Smith 6-0 6-3

MX: Carrie Neely/John Neely d Mrs Edgar Barnes/NG Naylor ????

Carrie and John are siblings.

Steever finally wins this event after 3 consecutive defeats to Neely in the challenge round. "The loser was the first to congratulate Miss Steever and complimented her on her improved game." Neely seemed to be tired by the effort of taking the long first set.


Circa mid-July, Norwood, London, England (Grass)

FI: K. Goodwin d. Miss Harper 6-4 6-1

MX: K. Goodwin/A.G. Goodwin d. Norah Lattey/Mr Wood 6-1 6-3

This was the first edition of the Norwood tournament. The winners of the mixed doubles event were brother and sister.
Miss Harper may well be Helen or Ida Harper.
