July 24-30, Canadian Championships, Toronto, Canada (Grass)

From The Montreal Daily Star, 21 July 1909

Champions and Ex-Champions for Big Tennis Tourney

Miss Moyes, Canadian Lady Champion and other big bugs entered

The Canadian Lawn Tennis Championships, which will be held on the courts of the Mount Royal Lawn Tennis Club commencing on Saturday the 24st inst., promise to be very successful both from the number of entries received and also owing to the fact that many of the best players in Canada have signified their intention to take part. [...]

Miss Lois Moyes, of Toronto, Canadian Lady Champion, has advised the committee that she will be here to defend her title. Considerable interest is manifested in the ladies’ events owing to the fact that Mrs Frank Hannam, formerly Miss Edith Boucher of England, will be a competitor. Mrs Hannam was one of the best lady players in Great Britain, having been holder of some seven or eight championship trophies and was picked by several English experts as a probable winner of the All-English Championships, but owing to her removal to Canada early this year, she was unable to compete in this important event.

From the Montreal Star, 31 July 1909

Mrs Hannan now Canadian Lady Tennis Champion

At the tennis championships yesterday afternoon interest and excitement in the result of the matches ran higher than ever. The weather was ideal and several semi-finals and the ladies’ championship finals were played off. Miss Edith Hannam, as was expected and as she deserved, beat Miss Evelyn Clay and won the ladies’ championship. Mrs Hannam’s play all through the tournament has left absolutely nothing to be desired. It is as perfect as is possible, and only in strength and ability does she fall slightly behind the best men players.

ACF: Edith Hannam (GB) d. Evelyn Clay 6-1 6-0
