Draw Notes:

Anne Cory Smith also called Anna Cory Smith by the Philadelphia Record.

This is the first year the ladies doubles is an official championship event. The woman are aware from the very start that they are playing for the title of "Lady Champion of the United States." The 1888 and 1887 were granted retroactively.

Miss D. F. Butterfield
