The designation Czechoslovakian Champiopnships seems strange. This country did not exist before WWI. You recently posted results for this Champiopnships in other years before WWI. Are you sure this is the correct name of that Champiopnships? Maybe it was just Bohemian/Czech.

It's a right observation, Karoly.

We have also the roll, since 1895, in Official Tournament Winners by Event thread, but now we must correct it.
That roll doesn't accord with the few winners that we know on Bohemian Championships (that were held in Prague in the same time of Austrian Champs.) so from 1895 to 1914 is more probable was Prague Championships, or "Championships of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia".
Both these tournaments were played in those years.

Above Prague tournaments added, for now as "Czechoslovakian" until all the historians can tell me for sure how to make that more accurate.

Karoly,

As Mauro says above, the precursor to the Czechoslovakian Championships was probably the "Championships of Bohemia, Morovia and Silisea" event held at the same tournament as the Championships of Prague event.

The "Championships of Bohemia, Morovia and Silesia" appear to have been distinct from the "Championships of Bohemia" event held alongside the Austrian Championships event held before World War One at a separate venue in Prague. If I remember correctly, the "Championships of Bohemia, Morovia and Silesia" event was referred to once or twice as the "Championships of the Republic".

The venue for the "Championships of Bohemia, Morovia and Silisea" and the Championships of Prage was the "First Czech Lawn Tennis Club".

If I'm not mistaken, there were also various tournaments held in Slovakia before World War One with titles such as the Slovakian Championships, the Championships of East Slovakia, the Championships of West Slovakia, etc. I don't remember seeing any of these tournaments mentioned in "Der Lawn-Tennis-Sport" or "Lawn-Tennis und Golf".

Clearly a Czechoslovakian Championships tournament was only possible after World War One.

Mark,

I agree with you.
You have added the Czechoslovakian Champs. in 1903, 04, 05, 06, and these results are according with those that we had in the honour roll of Czechoslovakian Champs. in Official Tournament Winners by Event thread, and that I have removed yesterday (from 1895 to 1914).

On the site of "First Czech Lawn Tennis Club" (I. Cesky LTK) there is just written that in 1895 was "the first international tournament called the Championship of the Czech crown."
http://www.cltk.cz/home/?page_id=4030

This denomination is equivalent to "Championships of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia" as these 3 regions form the Czech lands.

So I think can reinsert those removed results, with these new denominations, and you could check again your sources for 1903, 04, 05, 06, checking if there is a more exact denomination of those tournaments that you have added as Czechoslovakian Champs.

Hi Mark,

I highly doubt there was any kind of Slovakian Championships before WWI. The present Slovakia was always part of Hungary, it was never independent or called like that before 1918. It is only in the past 100 years that Slovakia is associated with the Czech Republic.
Northern Hungary had of course several counties, after WWI (the Trianon treaty) many of them were divided between Hungary and the newly formed Czechoslovakia.

Just for say that in Official Tournament Winners by Event thread I have added the "Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia Championships, or Czech Crown Championships?", with the results from 1895 to 1914 that yesterday I have removed from the Czechoslovakian Champs.
Of course we are waiting to know the exact or prevalent denomination of this tournament.
