Added correct dates, venue (it was Cincinatti Tennis Club-not Avondale) and results from QF for the Tri-State event.


July 18-25, Tri-State Tournament, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA (Clay)
Venue: Cincinatti Tennis Club

QF: Winona Closterman d Jane Craven 6-1 6-0
QF: Marie Wimer d Hilda Von Steinwehr 6-4 6-3
QF: Carrie Neely d Lilly Wilshire default
QF: Myrtle McAteer d Marthas Kinsey 7-5 6-0

SF: Closterman d Wimer 6-3 6-4
SF: McAteer d Neely 6-3 6-3

FI: Winona Closterman d. Myrtle McAteer 6-1 5-7 6-4

This year the event moved from the Avondale Club to its new home-the Cincinatti Tennis Club on the corner of Wold and Dexter Avenues in East Walnut Hills. The club was founded in 1880 and is still active today.

Closterman wins a silver-handled parasol for taking the event, while runnerup McAteer gets a silver belt.

The defending champion Maud Banks did not appear, but if she had she would have played through, as no challenge round existed in the Tri-State until 1905.
