This was the inaugural mixed doubles event at the US Championships. This year Mabel Cahill became the first player to win the "triple crown" at this, or any, major tournament. 16 year old Bessie Moore of New York is the main challenge to Cahill. Her main weakness, according the New York Times, is "she does not hit the ball hard enough." The Times reports an increase in volleying over the previous year by the ladies, noting that the lob is often employed as a tactic to combat it.

The singles final is hotly contested. When Moore wins the 4th set to tie it the crowd erupts in prolonged applause. "But in the fifth set Miss Cahill was too much for her plucky antagonist...".
