According to an October 10, 1941, news report, Dorothy Bundy Cheney and the other touring players from the United States were scheduled to arrive in Rio de Janeiro by boat on October 23. While in South America, they were scheduled to visit Ecuador, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, and possibly Venezuela. Results were found only from the Argentine Championships in Buenos Aires, although there were published reports that the players were competing in Chile December 3-5 and arrived in Guayaquil, Ecuador, to play a series of matches there December 22-24. Note that the players did not cancel their tour after the Pearl Harbor attacks.

FI: Sarah Cooke (US)/Elwood Cooke (US) d. Dodo Bundy (US)/Don McNeill (US) 6-4 3-6 7-5

A full house of 3,000 see an outstanding ladies final. Bundy was up 40-15 at 5 all in the third. She served a double, dropped the next point, and lost the game after 3 deuces. Sarah served it out with some brilliant volleys.

Maria Teran showed off her beautiful legs in the doubles final. The pity was her game couldn't help her partner Sarah Cooke, who had to do most of the work in a losing effort. A nervous Teran faltered on serve and saw so many passing shots blown by her she retreated to the baseline even when Cooke was serving.
