The New York Times

1922 Spalding's Tennis Annual,

With the women's championships moving to Forest Hills the USTA decides to award the mixed doubles to Longwood, where it will remain for many years in conjunction with the men's doubles.

In the final Mary K Browne delighted the gallery by her wonderful gets off of rockets fired her way by "Big" Bill Tilden. Her net skills in comparison to Molla Mallory made the difference in a close 3 setter.
