Summary by Andrew Tas

The first year of tennis on the European Continent after the Great War and Lenglen started to show her dominance that would continue into the mid twenties until she turned professional in 1926. With the Challenge Round still in play Lenglen advanced to the Challenge Round to meet seven times champion Lambert Chambers and won the match 10-8 4-6 9-7. Lenglen took a 4-1 lead in the final set, then Lambert Chamberts fought back to 6-5, with two match points at 40-15. A lucky wood shoot and a slashing backhand winner pulled Lenglen back to deuce and set won the last game to love. In the USA Wightman and Mallory dominated and Wightman won the USA Championships which were played just before Wimbledon. Marion Zinderstein (later Jessup) defeated Mallory in the semi-finals but lost 6-1 6-2 in the final.There were no official women rankings this year.

The continued impact of the Great War on tennis

This note from Newmark indicates the level of bitterness:

The British Lawn Tennis Association Council met on December 9, 1918, a month after the Armistice. "Lawn Tennis and Badminton" for April 24, 1919, carried a report on this meeting, part of which stated the following:

"The meeting unanimously passed the following resolutions:

1. That British players be excluded from taking part in any tournaments or competitions organised by our enemies, and held on enemy territory.
2. That all enemy players be prohibited from entering at any tournaments or competitions organised by our enemies.
3. That for the purposes of lawn tennis, the new Czechoslovak nation be regarded as Allies.
[...]" The main "enemies" referred to above were Germany, Austria and Hungary.

It would be many years before Germans in particular were allowed to compete in international events.

Suzanne Lenglen's 1919 record

Singles: Won 29 matches, lost 0, 1 default. Won 9 of 10 events entered. Dropped only 1 set (in the Wimbledon CR) to Dorothea Lambert Chambers.
Doubles: Won 4 events. Undefeated all year.
Mixed: Won 7 of 8 events. Lone loss in QF of Wimbledon. Her partner in 5 events was Max Decugis.

FI: Suzanne Lenglen/Max Decugis d. Doris Wolfson/Nicolae Mishu (Rom) 6-2 6-3

The SF in singles was the first round. Doris Wolfson's name sounds British but she is listed as from France in John Barrett's book Wimbledon. In addition Alan Little lists her as Mme Wolfson in his book on Lenglen, another indication her nationality may have been French.

From "Lawn Tennis and Badminton", April 24, 1919:

"The Riviera season opened on February 24 with the meeting on the courts of the Carlton Club, which thus had the honour of holding the first open tournament on the Cote d'Azur since the cessation of hostilities."

From ‘The Examiner’, Friday, April 25, 1919:

An unfortunate accident on the court on Wednesday morning so severely strained William Sheehan’s right hand that it was yesterday found necessary to postpone the decisions of two championship finals – the men’s singles, in which he was to meet James McGough, and the mixed doubles, in which, with Miss Robina Bushby, he was to have played Roy Crawford and Miss G.E. Edwards. The question of the arrangements to decide these two important events is one that will be decided by the association. Except in this regard the tournament has been completed.

Principal of the matches played yesterday was the final of the ladies’ singles, in which Mrs Mall Molesworth reversed the result of the recent summer tournament and scored a very meritorious victory over Miss Robina Bushby in straight sets. The new champion played brilliant tennis. Possessing a capacity to volley and smash unique in a lady player, she gave a remarkably fine exhibition. The match very nearly went to the third set. With the score at 5-all and 40-0 in her favour Miss Bushby appeared to have the second set won, but Mrs Molesworth, by a series of brilliant strokes, pulled the game out of the fire, and took the set and the match.
