Re: May Sutton - The First Overseas Wimbledon Champion, by Alan Little

I also saw in the results thread that during the first war, Sutton, Hotchkiss and Bjurstedt made events for facing each other in special tournaments. They were the three best players in the US around that time, totally dominating the competition. Bjurstedt got the final word in terms of domination (Sutton was barely playing anymore), but was soon going to be totally dominated by Lenglen and Wills the decade after.
