From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", June 4, 1908: "The second annual tournament for the Championships of the North of France took place at Lille on May 22 and following days. Last year the tournament was held on the three courts of the Roubaix Club, but it cannot be compared to the one that took place this year at Lille. There were no ladies' events last year, but this year there were as many as four, and such good players as Miss Elise Lane, Mlle Adine Masson, Mme Anne de Borman, Miss Ellen Mills and Miss E. Attfiled took part in the various events. Mrs Eveline Nutcombe-Quicke was also down to play, but owing to tennis elbow she was unable to compete.

"The five courts were not in the very best condition, as they had been recently relaid, and were on the soft side, but the deep red colour of the courts is excellent, and the white lines show up extremely well."

"Lawn Tennis and Croquet" says that this event suffered from a lack of English participants because of its place in the calendar, which meant that it clashed with some of the tournaments in Britain. It was hoped that a change in the calendar might encourage more foreign participants. The event in question was held on the Ile de Puteaux, more or less on the Seine.

From Lawn Tennis For Ladies (published in 1910)
My Most Memorable Match (By Leading Players) MISS V.M. (Violet) PINCKNEY
(Champion of London, 1907, 1908)

In recalling the most remarkable lawn tennis match that I have ever played, I do not think I can do better than give the Open Mixed Double semi-final that took place on the final day of the Kent Championship Meeting at Beckenham on June 1, 1908. Mr. Roper Barrett and I met Mr. Prebble and Miss Boothby, and the story of the match is one of startling lapses and recoveries. In the first set Mr. Prebble and Miss Boothby profited by the combination born of frequent association in Mixed Doubles. Miss Boothby was very good from the back of the court and Mr. Prebble seemed to make mincemeat of my returns. It was their set by 6/4. In the second set Mr. Roper Barrett was quite wonderful, and killed every ball that he could possibly reach. The result was that the set was easily ours by 6/1. Our opponents, however, had something in reserve, and, I playing badly, they ran away to 5/0 in the third set. All seemed over. My partner and I made a great effort and got one game, and we congratulated ourselves on saving a love set. Then the excitement began, and we added game after game to our side. I am sure the crowd beame intensely interested, and quite worked themselves up as we drew to 5 all. Mr. Barrett at this time was simply invincible, and I managed somehow to keep the balls out of Mr. Prebble's reach and play everything to Miss Boothby, upon whom devolved the responsibility. My partner volleyed at all kinds of remarkable angles, and, as The Sportsman in describing the match, remarked, "sat on the net and was in complete command. We took seven games consecutively and won the set at 7/5, and with it a memorable match.

Draw notes:
Matilda Borden (Wright and Ditson) called "Borda" in another source (The New York Times ?)

Source: Wright and Ditson Annual.

A record-breaking entry attests to the continued upswing in the popularity of tennis. This compels the organizers to schedule morning matches-an innovation that the Wright and Ditson says "seemed to be acceptable to all concerned." Blazing heat leads to some defaults in the first round, with the tight schedule being a contributing factor.

Maud Barger-Wallach's steady style of play won out over the more aggressive style of Marie Wagner in the final. By winning Maud had the right to play defending champ Evelyn Sears in the challange round. with both women playing a conservative baseline game rallies often lasted 15 to 20 shots. The ladies split sets and then took the ten minute break customary in America for this era. They needed the rest, as the last set score went to 9-7 before Wallach won.

Players were put up at the Chesnut Hill Academy (formerly the Wissahickon Inn) which "is practically at the entrance of the Philadelphia Cricket Club grounds."

Draw notes

Lamplough=married name of Gladys Eastlake-Smith.

Luard=married name of Constance "Connie" Wilson



Sterry gets her 5th Wimbledon after a gap of some years. The key to her win is a quarterfinal upset over Chambers. Charlotte still has the record as the oldest Wimbledon champion at age 37 and 9 months (291 days to be exact).

Sutton doesn't defend. She wouldn't return to Wimbledon until 1929. In a letter of 1908 to American Lawn Tennis she wrote that if the English "Wanted their cup back they could come here (America)." No Englishwoman took up the challenge.

A summary of play follows:

A surprising defeat of Alice Greene by Mildred Coles. Miss Greene never got going and never acquired that absolutely rock-like steadiness which has won her so many successes. Miss Coles, on the other hand played an exceptionally strong game, her service was a valuable asset and her drives too had a great deal of sting in them. However against Miss Pinckney her strokes were neither so powerful nor so safe and she fell an easy victim. Countess Schulenburg made a good fight against Miss Boothby and Miss B Tulloch added to her reputation by defeating Mrs Hillyard after a very closely-fought encounter. Mrs Sterry and Mrs Luard (Connie Wilson) played an excellent match. The cut which MrsSterry puts on almost every ball lends an appearance of softness to her strokes yet makes her length very hard to judge. Furthermore the low bound adds considerable difficulty to reaching and dealing with her drop shots. She placed the ball faultlessly and kept a very good length while making scarcely a single mistake on the volley. Mrs Luard alwaysplays a graceful and distinguished game but has lost some of her severity. Against Mrs Lambert Chambers, Mrs Sterry
not only maintained, but improved the form she had shown against Mrs Luard. She showed a most varied excellence of stroke while Mrs Lambert Chambers lacked versatility. Mrs Lambert Chambers hit hard and long whereas Mrs Sterry varied her pace and continually approached the net where she demonstrated wonderfully secure and clever volleying. Below her best, Mrs Lambert Chambers found her back-line game smothered by Mrs Sterry’s volleys.

In the final Mrs Sterry met a stubborn opponent in Miss Morton. Miss Morton has a strong forehand drive and repeatedly scored with some magnificent cross court driving which time after time flummexed Mrs Sterry along with some well played drop shots. Mrs Sterry not as good as she was against Mrs Lambert Chambers nevertheless played a very fine all round game in which her volleying as usual formed a conspicuous element. She also showed great coolness and pluck when she was pressed by the attack of a determined opponent.

This event was much diminished because of the number of walkovers. The runner-up, Dora Boothby, ended up playing only one match of a possible four, the final.

Mrs Lambert Chambers’ play against Miss Morton was a considerable advance upon her play at Wimbledon. She drove with merciless pace and accuracy which saw Miss Morton scampering from one side of the court to the other to the extent that could have only one result. Mrs Winch relying entirely upon keeping a good length drive could only win the sixth game of each set against Mrs Lambert Chambers who showed more enterprise than usual in going for her shots.

ends July 11 Hotel San Rafael Exhibition, San Rafael, California, US (Hard)
Venue: Hotel San Rafael

May Sutton d. Hazel Hotchkiss 6-1 6-2

A full house of 4 to 500 come to see May Sutton-still the biggest drawing card in women's tennis.

From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", August 20, 1908: "An immense throng of spectators, says 'American Lawn Tennis', journeyed over to the Hotel San Rafael to see Miss May Sutton play Miss Hazel Hotchkiss, the great little player of Berkeley, who has for the past two or three years been making such remarkable strides in the game. No small number of people were of the opinion that Miss Hotchkiss would make it extremely warm for the 'world beater'.

"Miss Hotchkiss, however, was beaten rather easily. She appeared to suffer from extreme stage fright, and did not play within 30 of her average game. But her shortcomings were offset by the poor playing of Miss Sutton, who is not in very good health. She played as far off her usual game as did Miss Hotchkiss. Both use a good amount of speed, but on this particular afternoon that element was entirely lacking. Miss Sutton won by the one-sided score of 6-1, 6-2.

"Miss Sutton showed up to much greater advantage in a mixed doubles match with Maurice McLoughlin as a partner against Ethel Bruce and Carlton Gardner. The match was full of brilliant play. Mrs Bruce proved herself to be a mixed doubles player of great ability, some people declaring her to be better than Miss Sutton at the game. The score was 6-1, 5-7, 6-3 in favour of Miss Sutton and McLoughlin."

The link below provides more about this historic locale:

World-Renowned Tennis Players
The hotel’s tennis courts gained an international reputation, and many of the world’s top players played there. Wilhelmina Gilbert, born in 1887, speaks of watching the tennis matches at the Hotel Rafael as a girl: “I used to walk out and sit there and watch May Sutton and Violet Sutton and the Sutton girls play tennis. And they were the first tennis players, women, who played like men.”

Martha Foster Abbot, daughter of Arthur W. Foster, recalls that “the Hotel Rafael [was] a beautiful building with wide verandas, graced with high-backed rocking chairs. I remember a gathering of riders on their beautiful mounts, mingling with a large group that had come to see them all. The hotel had a thick cypress maze and two paved tennis courts with shaded grandstands; tournaments were held there. And inside the impressive gates, the road led to the hotel proper, half-way up a grotto, always a mysterious and spooky place to us.”
