Summary:

Interest was not at a peak owing to the absence of Jones and Atkinson. The local paper maintains that the recent popularity of golf as a women's sport is partly to blame.

On day one the spectators barely outnumbered the players as 'the Philadelphia entries met with a regular Waterloo.' All hopes for a local win rested on the shoulders of Maud Banks.

A capacity crowd shows for the final where Parker won the first two games only to drop 18 straight! Parker won 32 points in the whole match to 81 for McAteer. According to Wright and Ditson the new champion wasn't pushed at all. 'Completely outclassed' was the verdict of the Philadelphia Record rendered of the 6-2 6-0 6-0 beatdown by McAteer. Myrtle was very effective on the serve. American Lawn Tennis wrote of the new champion that "Miss McAteer has greatly improved in her playing since last year, her peculiar cut stroke being very difficult for opponents to return. Miss Parker, on the other hand, gave impressions of nervousness and was easily outclassed, as the score shows." (p. 321 of ALT)

All 16 contestants were single. Play began each day 2:45.
