Venue: Queen’s Club

Draw of 9

QF: Dorothea Lambert Chambers d. Aurea Edgington 6-1, 6-2
QF: Phyllis Satterthwaite d. Mrs D. Harding 6-1, 6-0
QF: Beryl Tulloch d. K. Allen 6-2, 6-2
QF: Blanche Colston d. Madeline O’Neill 6-4, 6-2

SF: Dorothea Lambert Chambers d. Phyllis Satterthwaite 6-2, 6-0
SF: Blanche Colston d. Beryl Tulloch 6-0, 6-4

ACF: Dorothea Lambert Chambers d. Blanche Colston 6-2 7-5

CR: Dorothea Lambert Chambers d. Dorothy Holman 6-2 6-3

MX: Dorothea Lambert Chambers/Stanley N. Doust (Aus) d. Madeline O’Neill/“E.W.E. Lamb” 6-3 6-0*

* Madeline O’Neill had won the mixed doubles title in 1912 with André Gobert-negating a challenge round. “E.W.E. Lamb” was a pseudonym used by an unidentified player.

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, May 1, 1913: “The ladies’ singles, as had been generally anticipated, proved a triumph for Dorothea Lambert Chambers, who regained the title she resigned last year, without the loss of a set and with only 17 games scored against her in four matches. The closest battle she had was with Blanche Colston, who found her not quite at her best and ran her very close in the second set of the final.

“Mrs Colston’s play showed a remarkable advance, and she disposed decisively of both Madeline O’Neill and Beryl Tulloch in the earlier rounds. In the Challenge Round Dorothy Holman put up a plucky fight and showed some admirable strokes – her backhand is good and she made many useful cross shots and deep drives, her length generally being very sound. But while her good shots were to be applauded, Mrs Lambert Chambers was making others as good all the time, in addition to showing much more variety of stroke and knowledge of the angles of court. She played, in fact, a thorough championship game, full of sting and eloquent of resource.”

MX: Ethel Larcombe/Charles P. Dixon d. Dora Boothby/Arthur D. Prebble 6-2 6-2

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, May 29, 1913: “The ladies’ singles had another fine entry, though neither Ethel Larcombe nor Dorothea Lambert Chambers went in for this particular event. It ended in an extremely popular win for Charlotte Sterry, but, if Mrs Sterry ever has anxious moments, which seems doubtful, she must have experienced them more than once in her match against Jessie Green in the semi-final, for her opponent was three times within a stroke of winning the first set and twice the second.

“In the final Mrs Sterry had again to work hard in the first set against Madeline O’Neill, but she secured the second quite easily, volleying with all her old accuracy and the most admirable judgement.”

Re: 1913 results

Week of May 26-June 1


Dates: May 26-June 1
Venue: Racing Club de France, Paris.
Surface: Clay


Singles (Draw=at least 5, plus holder)

1st Round

Marguerite Broquedis-bye
Elizabeth Ryan (US)-bye
Adine Masson d. Marie Conquet 3-6 6-3 6-2
Germaine Golding-bye

Doubles (Draw=3)

1st Round

Blanche Amblard/Suzanne Amblard d. Marie Conquet/Marie Danet 6-3 6-4
Magda Aranyi/Marguerite Broquedis-bye


Blanche Amblard/Suzanne Amblard d. Magda Aranyi/Marguerite Broquedis 4-6 6-2 6-2


Mixed Doubles


Marguerite Broquedis/William Laurentz d. Marie Danet/Poutin 6-1 6-2
Elizabeth Ryan (US)/Max Décugis d. Jeanne Matthey/Craig Biddle (US) 6-3 6-1


Marguerite Broquedis/William Laurentz d. Elizabeth Ryan/Max Décugis ????


Draw Notes

The exact draw is still very uncertain. For example the newspaper L'Echo reports Broquedis vs Ryan as a first round match, but Masson vs Conquet was clearly a round before Broquedis vs Ryan.

Elizabeth Ryan and Craig Biddle, both Americans, are probably allowed to enter the event due to their membership in French clubs.

Mixed Doubles

Daisy Speranza and William Laurenz are usually listed as the mixed winners, but contemporary sources only have Broquedis and William Laurenz as a team.

For the World Hard Court Championships of 1913 please see: World Hard Court Championships

L'Écho de Paris | 1913-06-02 | Gallica

Figaro : journal non politique | 1913-06-02 | Gallica (needs to be translated)



The slow clay does not aide Ryan in singles. The American likes the net game. Mme Broquedis likes a target at net, and passes Eliabeth again and again for an easy 6-3 6-0 romp in the semifinals.

On June 2 the Challenge Round matches in men's singles and mixed doubles were not played. A report in Le Figaro appears to suggest the matches were put off until the following Saurday (June 8) because Max Decugis needed to go to Wiesbaden for an important Davis Cup tie vs Germany. Max won the men's singles, suggesting the Challenge Round matches may have been played.

On the other hand the World Hard Court event started on June 7, and there are no scores for the Challenge Rounds. Thus at present it cannot be determined if Decugis and Elizabeth Ryan lost the challenge round match or simply defaulted.

MX: Dorothea Lambert Chambers/Charles P. Dixon d. Geraldine Beamish/F.R. Price 6-1 2-6 6-1

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 5, 1913: “Dorothea Lambert Chambers practically commanded the ladies’ open singles, and with Dorothy Holman not defending, she won the event for eighth time in eleven years. Beryl Tulloch gave Mrs Lambert Chambers her best game up to the final, and with Aurea Edgington scratching, Dora Boothby easily came through the upper half of the draw

“In this event Geraldine Beamish showed some very gratifying form, as was indicated by the ease with which she beat Doris Craddock. She was less given to impetuosity than some of her opponents, and played much better against Mrs Lambert Chambers than is indicated by the score of two love sets, very many games going to ‘vantage, and Mrs Beamish keeping up her end with fine tenacity

“Beryl Tulloch won the first two games of her semi-final with Mrs Lambert Chambers, but the latter had the match in hand once she had gauged the strength of the wind. Miss Boothby’s form against Daisy Kercheval-Hole was the reverse of convincing in the first set, but in the second she mixed her game cleverly, and came very near to her best.

“In the final Mrs Lambert Chambers’ commanding position in the game was emphasized by her comfortable conquest of Miss Boothby. Throughout there was more bite in her game, and the precision of her driving had Miss Boothby on the defensive practically throughout, the latter being afforded little scope for the drop stroke she can play so well against the majority of her opponents.”

Week of June 2-8

June 3-7, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 12, 1913: “The local tournament held for some years past on the East Gloucestershire Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club grounds, has this year blossomed out into an open one with sufficient success to justify the belief that the change will be permanent. The East Gloucestershire ground, besides being most picturesquely situated, is in every way fitted for the requirements of an open meeting with its wide expanse of well-kept and level turf, on which there is room for any number of courts up to twenty, and even more, and its ample pavilion accommodation; nor is there any reason why it should not become, in time, one of the leading tournaments of the summer season – although on this occasion the entry was not quite as good a one as was at one time hoped. But in spite of the scarcity of players of absolutely first-rate ability the standard of play was quite high enough, and the strength of the leading competitors level enough, to produce plenty of close and highly interesting tennis.

“In the ladies’ singles Edith Hannam’s supremacy was practically unchallenged, except by Mrs J.B Perrett, who gave her a very good game in the semi-final, and deserved a game or two more than she actually scored...”

From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack": "This new tournament attracted so large an entry that it was only by large numbers of 'retirments' that it could be completed. It was, in fact, too successful; and would do well to take a full week in future."

XDCR: Ethel Larcombe/James Parke (holders) d. Dorothea Lambert Chambers/Tony Wilding (NZL) 6-0 6-3

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 12 1913: “The long-delayed meeting between Ethel Larcombe and Dorothea Lambert Chambers has at last taken place, but the expected keen battle was not forthcoming, as the present champion was in invincible form, and refused to allow the high wind which was blowing straight down the court to bother her. On the other hand, Mrs Lambert Chambers never seemed able to settle down to her usual game, possibly owing to the clever tactics of her opponent, who intermingled drop shots, hard drives into the far corners of the court, and cross court volleys with consummate skill.”

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..."

MX: Dora Boothby/Arthur D. Prebble d. V. Spofforth/Charles P. Dixon 6-4 4-6 6-1

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, June 19, 1913: “Dorothea Lambert Chambers won the ladies’ singles, but she showed very little of the form which made her two years ago unquestionably the best lady player. Indeed, it may be said that she was lucky to win, for Miss Tulloch was within an ace of defeating her, and her intended finishing drive – a certain winner – just hit the tape and fell back on the wrong of the side net.

“Again, Mildred Coles in the semi-final was more than once within an ace of winning the second set; and Mrs Lambert Chambers was led in both sets – in the first 4-1 – by Phyllis Satterthwaite, who had achieved distinction by defeating Dora Boothby in a long and rather tedious match on Friday. Geraldine Beamish again showed excellent form in this event, beating Winifred McNair, and only just going down to Miss Boothby in two advantage sets. She has improved very much, and she and Vera Spofforth should both do better yet.”

From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 3, 1913: “The annual tournament at this beautiful town was favoured with perfect weather, and consequently proved most successful. The entry was slightly larger than last year, and on the second day a mixed single was started which attracted no less than forty entries, and proved both attractive and amusing, although it must be said that some of the men were scarcely as gallant as they might have been, and in many cases insisted on defeating members of the fair sex.

“The handicaps worked out well, with the exception of the finals in the two singles, some of the matches being of inordinate length. [...] It was a most enjoyable tournament, and it is hoped next year to add open events.”

All of the events at this tournament were still handicap only.

Lawn Tennis and Badminton (Thanks to Newmark for providing these reports and scores)






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.
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. It was so severe she retired from the mixed whem it was evident she could not continue, having been struck in the eye.

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 unusual occurrence of all 3 major finals being decided by retirement or default has never been repeated.


From “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 10, 1913:

“Tuesday, July 1. Women’s singles semi-finals.

“The two semi-finals were played today. Dorothea Lambert Chambers is regaining her confidence fast. She was altogether too good for Helen Aitchison, who, except for one or two short periods when she was finding the sidelines with irreproachable accuracy, was not on her best game. In fact, Mrs Lambert Chambers hit too hard for her, and played better than she has played all this season. She only lost five games in the two sets, and certainly always looked to be winning comfortably.

“This was far from being the case with Winifred McNair in the other match, in which she was opposed by Dorothy Holman. The game was very much a repetition of Mrs McNair’s game the day before with Charlotte Sterry; after losing the first set she won the next two, on each occasion just getting home by an advantage set in the third after being led in it. Her exertions of the previous day apparently disinclined her to do much volleying, but there was not the same necessity for it as in her previous match, since Miss Holman is naturally a baseliner, whereas Mrs Sterry had, if possible, to be kept back there by aggression.

“Still, Mrs McNair chose her time to come in very well, and made a lot of winning volleys, controlling their direction well, and concealing their pace with some skill. She has also acquired, probably from her husband, the art of lulling her opponents to a false sense of security by appearing to be absolutely done to the world, whereas in truth and in fact (as they say in the law) she has any amount of reserve to call upon.

“Miss Holman played steadily all through, and at times very well indeed; it was an even match, but Miss Holman failed to drive her advantage home, losing three or four game from 40-0. On the other hand, this is really a tribute to Mrs McNair’s pluck and pertinacity, and the way in which, when led 4-2 in the final set, she forced Miss Holman to a position in which a toss [lob] was the only possible reply, and then smashed that toss to glory every time, was as nice a bit of combined tactics and skill as could be desired.”


“The Mixed Doubles. Thursday, July 3. The Final.

“The programme opened on the centre court with this event, in which James C. Parke and Ethel Larcombe met Hope Crisp and Agnes Tuckey, and so far as the match proceeded it was evident that the best reply to ‘parallel formation’ is ‘parallel formation’, for Crisp and his partner did better against their formidable antagonists than any pair whom the latter had met at Wimbledon.

“Crisp did not start auspiciously, for he promptly lost his service game. Parke followed, and mainly by mistakes of Mrs Tuckey’s secured the game. The third, with Mrs Tuckey serving, showed Crisp missing an easy smash, but he atoned for this mistake by a fine poach. A double fault and missed volley by Crisp gave Parke and Co. the game after deuce had been called. The fourth game also ran to deuce, mainly by good volleying on the part of Mrs Tuckey and wild play by Parke, but Mrs Larcombe was as steady as a rock, and she won the game for her side. 4-0 Parke and Mrs Larcombe lead.

“In the fifth game Crisp made no mistake with his service, the first was fast and well-placed, and gave Mrs Tuckey opportunities at the net, of which she was not slow to avail herself, and Parke playing very badly, Crisp and his partner won the next two games. 4-3 Parke and Mrs Larcombe lead. The eighth game, Mrs Larcombe, by beautifully placed services and well backed up by her partner, won to love, and Crisp’s service game being captured, the set was won at 6-3.

“The second set was mainly notable for the falling off in Parke’s game; he was wild to a degree, and nothing seemed coming off for him. What was worse was his tactics. Mrs Larcombe was playing beautifully, and he did not give her enough to do. It was mainly by her exertions that the score reached 3-all, but with Parke playing worse and worse, and Crisp and Mrs Tuckey playing better and better, the latter won the next two games. They were at 15-love in the ninth game when a deplorable accident happened.

“A fairly deep and high lob went to Parke, who smashed it hard from the left-hand court towards the opposite sideline; Mrs Larcombe was close to the net, and the ball struck her with terrific force on the face. She did not fall, but seemed stunned for an instant, and it was soon obvious that she was seriously hurt. The game stopped, and Mrs Larcombe most pluckily continued standing on court and bathing her eye (which was injured) with water, but the damage was too serious to continue the game, and the players retired.

“The umpire, after a short delay, told the crowd that the match would be continued later, but further investigation proved that the injury was much too severe too allow of Mrs Larcombe continuing the match, or in playing any other match in this championship meeting. It was indeed a sad event, and cast a gloom over all subsequent proceedings.”

“Women’s All-Comers’ Final, Thursday, July 3.

“Dorothea Lambert Chambers has come into her own again; by her defeat of Winifred McNair she won the final round of the ladies’ singles, and on the day’s play she thoroughly deserved her victory. That in doing so she showed her super excellent form of two years ago we hesitate to say, but her game was good enough to dispose of any opposition that was encountered.

“Mrs McNair is a proverbially bad starter, and in this match she made no exception to her usual rule; throughout the first set she did not get going at all, as even when she had plenty of time to make the shot, time and again she hit the ball into the net or yards out of the court; but she did not always have much time, as Mrs Lambert Chambers was placing the ball with great accuracy from corner to corner, and varying these strokes with short-length, oblique drives. The pace was not very great, and Mrs McNair was often able to reach the ball and, strangely enough, on many occasions she was making the return better when hard pressed than when the stroke could be made in comparative leisure. The first set, owing to Mrs McNair’s bad start, was soon over, the score reading 6-0 in favour of Mrs Lambert Chambers.

“It was in the second set that the fight began; Mrs McNair’s ground shots improved out of all knowledge, and when she came to the net, and her judgement in picking out the right ball to come in on was very sound, she made some fine winning volleys. The games went with service until three-all was called, the fourth game with Mrs McNair serving being a tense affair, with the issue long in doubt; however, she secured it in the end by combined pluck and play, and then she secured the lead for the first time in the match at 4-3 with her service to follow; if only she could annex this she was in the happy position of holding a winning lead, and desperately she strove to secure it; she reached 40-30, and was in position for a winning volley.

“Mrs Lambert Chambers returned the ball, but it came within easy reach, and Mrs McNair, to her own evident disgust, ‘foozled’ the shot, the ball hit the net and the chance was lost. Desperately anxious to win this game she went all out for the two points necessary; twice she secured the ‘vantage, but on each occasion she was pulled back by her opponent, whose only trace of unsteadiness throughout the match occurred in the previous two games, and eventually the game – and what a game! – went to the ex-champion. After that it was all comparatively plain sailing for Mrs Lambert Chambers, the sea which had previously been ‘choppy’ calmed down, and with careful pilotage she reached port a popular winner.”

“Women’s doubles final. Friday, July 4.

“Dorothea Lambert Chambers and Charlotte Sterry looked to be winning this match easily against Winifred McNair and Dora Boothby, for the latter had a bad day and was no match for Mrs Lambert Chambers in baseline duels; neither did she provide her volleying partner with the necessary openings for securing a winning ace.

“Throughout the match Mrs Lambert Chambers and Mrs Sterry always looked to have the match in hand, and it was the hardest of hard luck that, after winning the first set at 6-4, and leading at 4-2, 40-15, in the second the regrettable accident to Mrs Sterry (referred to in ‘Varia’) compelled them to retire.”

From the “Varia” section of “Lawn Tennis and Badminton”, July 10, 1913: “Poor Mrs Sterry! It was the hardest of hard luck to injure herself so seriously when, in partnership with Mrs Lambert Chambers, she had secured the first set in the final of the ladies’ doubles, and had a lead of 4-2 in the second. Here’s wishing her a speedy recovery.

“We understand that the precise injury is a torn tendon in the calf of the leg, and there is small hope of her playing again this season. We are glad to add that the injury is not causing much pain, though it is, of course, uncomfortable.”
