Draw Notes:

Held with the US Men's doubles. The draw is reconstructed and not in eact draw order.

[The exact place in the draw for the two first round matches below is unclear]

*1R: Mary Greef/Ian Collins (GB) d. Mrs M. D. Simmons/M. D. Simmons 6-0 6-0
*1R: Clara Zinke/George O'Connell d. Elizabeth Corbiere/Rene de Buzelet (Fra) 6-4 7-5

**How can Jack Crawford have 2 doubles partners? The Virginia Rice pairing makes no sense as he was clearly paired with Molla Mallory. Te Times is in error here.

Mrs Henri Cochet=Germaine, nee Desthieux.

Jojn Colin Gergory usually listed as J. C. Gregory

Missing full names for:


Miss C. Wade (Canada)-probably a sister or female relative of Olive Wade.
Miss M. Reid
H. Robatel (male player)

Mr and Mrs M. D. Simmons

Summary:

According to the New York Times 3,500 came for the finals, which wrote that "Miss Cross bore the brunt of the attack on her side of the net and stood her ground in a fashion to win salvos of applause."
