New York Times



Overall a very weak and slim field that was enlivened by the odd: there were four Palfrey sisters as entrants plus Mrs Maud Barger Wallach, winner of the US singles in 1908!

The defending champions Jacobs and Vines are upset in the finals. In large part it is the sterling play of little Sarah Palfrey that wins it for her team. A Bostonian, pert, and cute, as a local native she naturally has a lot of support at Longwood.

Sarah was somehow able to return the "cannonball" serve of Vines. The Times wrote, "The Boston girl stood up to the fierce drives of Vines in remarkable fashion and won volumes of applause. Perry was in excellent form and showed to better advantage than Vines."
