The New York Times

By ALLISON DANZIGSpecial to THE NEW,YORK TIMES. "MISS JACOBS, LOTT TAKE TENNIS FINAL." New York Times (1923-Current file): 20. Aug 27 1934. ProQuest. Web. 21 Jan. 2017 .



Usually held near Boston; this year's US Men's and Mixed Doubles title is hosted by the Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia. Helen Jacobs and George Lott capture the Mixed after being within two points of defeat. Ryan's volleying and Stoefen's serve blitzed through the first set and got them to 54 in the second. At this stage only some excellent lobs from Lott kept his side in the match. After weathering the storm by a score of 13-11 Jacobs and Lott ran away with the 3rd set.

Jacobs is now the triple champion of the US.
