Wright and Ditson (which covers the event on pages 180 to 182) reports that several lady players were absent due to the World's Fair going on in Chicago. Players such as Crouch, Lord, Wilison, and the Gibbs sisters fell into this category.
An "immense crowd" came for the Challenge Round. A 67-game five-set match! By games this ranks as one of the longest ladies singles ever. "Miss Hooper uses a drive stroke so powerful that
few men could equal, and covers it with a rapidity and grace seldom winessed in a lady."
*Check score later in newspaper source. Wright and Ditson somewhat confusing.
