Draw notes:

Mrs Golding is the recently married Germaine Régnier

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1914): "In spite of English absentees, the second tournament at Saint Cloud, officially styled the Championnats du Monde sur Terre Battue, was a magnificent success. On the Saturday nearly four thousand were present to witness the semi-finals. On Sunday, for the climax of the finals, over a thousand were turned away seatless, while one speculative owner of tickets, who had bought three seats at the rate of 9 francs each per day, sold them for 100 francs each for the last day's play alone.

"The centre court at the Stade Français is a model, almost a slavish model, of the centre court at Wimbledon. The stands, if less solidly constructed, are arranged the same way, and are as capacious; the run-back and side-run are as extensive; the scoring board is, if a little smaller, precisely similar; only the surface of the court, khaki in colour and baked sand in substance, is different. It must be confessed (says the special correspondent of 'The Field' [probably Arthur Wallis Myers]) that this yellowy brown colour, so baneful to the eyes in the strong glare of a midsummer sun, drew one's preference instinctively to the green turf of Wimbledon, so peaceful to look upon, a cushion for the feet compared with this rock-like plane. But probably the hard court at the Stade Français more nearly approaches a standardised court for the whole world than the centre court at Wimbledon. Turf for lawn tennis is not to be found in Africa or on the Continent. It is something of luxury in India, and even where turf is more general the standard of Wimbledon is rarely, if ever, reached.

"Outside the chief court at Saint Cloud, uncomfortably crowded on Sunday, the accommodation for spectators is on a generous scale - in marked contrast to the narrow alleys at Wimbledon. The French organisers have acres of beautiful parkland on which to distribute their crowds after a big match. Tea under the trees makes a delightful setting. The pavilion is 300 yards or so from the centre court, reached by sylvan glades. Its catering and dressing accommodation surpasses Wimbledon; indeed, any other tournament on this side of the Atlantic.

"To M. Albert de Joannis, commissionaire général of the hard court championships, is due high praise for the perfect organisation. Day after day he had to handle large and emotional crowds, to feed them, to provide them with good matches. All his labours were carried through with zeal and tact. Lawn tennis in France owes much to his enterprising genius. As the only Englishman associated with the tournament, Mr George M. Simond, the referee, is also to be congratulated. His task was perhaps more delicate than that of M. de Joannis, for he had to perform the unpleasant necessity of putting tired men into court for a second or even third match on the same day. Eight days was not enough for four championship events, two of which are the best of five sets..."
Notes and draws courtest of Newmark

Agnes Tuckey/Hope Crisp d. Ethel Larcombe/James C. Parke 3-6 5-3 retired

Notes: 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.

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 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.
