1932 results

*Most results courtesy of Andrew Tas, Newmark401, and "the computer".
Also using the 1933 Wright and Ditson Annual.

The return of Moody to Europe after a years absence dominated the year. Moody only played singles in four events, the French Championships, Wimbledon, Wightman Cup (played at Wimbledon) the Dutch Championships, and a minor event in Strausbourg. She won all her singles matches. Critics though noted that she didnt have the same game as in her dominant years and started slowly in matches. She won her 4th and last French Championships and 5th Wimbledon title and then decided to stay in Europe to study art and played doubles and mixed doubles in Paris and in some exhibitions. As a result of Moody staying in Europe Helen Jacobs won her first US Championships. Jacobs was a finalist at Wimbledon, dominated the grass court season on the east coast of the USA and also played Wightman Cup, which USA won over England 4-3 after winning the first 4 rubbers. Other notable events of the year include the improvement of Alice Marble, Jedrejowska, Sarah Palfrey and Stammers, the injury of Aussem (the previous years number one) and Coral Buttsworth retaining her Australian Championships. The rankings for the year were produced by A Wallis Myers.

Myers World Rankings
1 Helen Wills Moody (US)
2 Helen Jacobs (US)
3 Simone Mathieu (France)

Draw notes:

Esna Boyd Robertson withdraws when her mother dies on the eve of the event. This means redoing some parts of the draw, as she was originally slated to partner Meryl O’Hara Wood in the doubles as the #1 seeds and #3 seed with Harada in the mixed. Junior Nancy Lewis plays with Wood in doubles and Edna Collinson partners Harada.

Missing full name for:

No one. All names are complete.

Notes on others in draw:

Dorothy Anderson=Miss D. J. Anderson of Victoria. The initials stand for Dorothy Jesmond.
Truda Cox from Victoria
Christobel Finlayson is captain of the Hyde Park Tennis team.
The Melbourne Argus confirms the name for Joyce Lillecrapp (there is no "e" on the end)
The Mail renders McGrath’s first name as “Molly” rather than “Mollie”.
Stevenson and Tonkin juniors from Victoria
Joyce Williams was a junior from NSW.
Jean Wilson from South Australia

RRB Barbour=Robert Barbour
AW Knight=Allan Walton Knight.



The Adelaide Mail, The Melbourne Argus, and The Sydney Morning Herald. The Mercury (Hobart) provided original draw in the draw order.

Gee Tee provided the seeds.



Esna Boyd Robertson withdraws when her mother dies on the eve of the event. This opens up the women's draw.

Buttsworth was able to rededicate herself to tennis some 18 months ago when her six year old daughter Margaret came of age to attend school. Corrie’s lobs scored at times, but her real killer was a chop shot off the backhand that often just cleared the net and died.

Girl champion Nancy Lewis, aged 18, is a second year medical student at Melbourne University. The Mail notes that she is “tall, slim, and particularly retiring. She has an almost limitless number of strokes….She has played tennis as long as she can remember.” Lewis reaches the doubles semifinal but is not in the singles.

Coral Buttsworth was unable to consolidate her newly acquired status during the rest of 1931 losing many matches but was still ranked no. 2 in Australia. Returning in 1932 she defeated veteran Meryl O'Hara Wood and Dorothy Weston to reach the final to face Kath Le Mesurier. Le Mesurier turned the tables on Marjorie Crawford from last year, beating her in the quarters and holding out up-and-coming Emily Westacott.

Le Mesurier, cheered on by the partisan crowd, led 4-1 40-0 in the first set, but the heavily chopped shots of Buttsworth, barely raising on grass, were beginning to cause her consternation. Moreover Le Mesurier was covering a lot of territory, running in for the drop shot, back for the lob. It was a tight contest, but Buttsworth prevailed 9-7 6-4

5,000 attend the finals. Police are needed to control the overflow of spectators. In fact record attendance all week is dampened only by rain on a couple of days.

On the social scene all three of the visiting Japanese loved to dance. At one party several female players joined in, Mrs Crawford dancing “the blues” with Satoh.
