Draw notes:

*Mark has this player listed as Joltz.

The Lobkowicz family was a noble family from Bohemia. The Slavic style spelling for the family is Lobkowiczova. There are several candidates for the tennis playing Princess Josephine.

1. Josephine Maria Anna Lobkowicz, (1897-1972), Md. 1920, Count Andreas Karl Borromäus Klemens von Schall-Riaucour (1884-1958)
2. Anna Maria Josephine Aloisia Lobkowicz, (1890-1964), Md. 1911, Count Hubert Maria zu Stolberg-Stolberg, (1881, + 1963)
3. 1. (Maria Anna) Bertha Josephine Lobkowicz (1896-1959).


From "Ayres' Almanack" (1923): "It had been agreed before the war that Belgium should have the hard court championship meeting, after France had staged it for four years. Into its efficient organisation, the fruits of which were seen at the Royal Leopold Club, Brussels, Chevalier Paul de Borman threw himself with characteristic energy. He succeeded not only in providing a centre court of first-class proportions, both for players and spectators, other courts equally good, and amenities satisfying to the most fastidious, but also in attracting a representative entry of both sexes.


"The last day brought great heat and a tremendous crowd. A lack of officials was responsible for excessive crowding at the gangways, while between the matches photographers and autograph hunters rushed pell mell on to the court; the refreshment arrangements also proved quite inadequate. These defects, however, can easily be remedied on a future occasion.


"The ladies' final between Mlle Ryan and Mlle Lenglen followed lines which had been marked out on the Riviera in 1921. The champion was never in serious difficulty, and, playing a back-court game exclusively, she won with the loss of five games in two sets."

Lenglen is tested in the semis, where Kitty McKane holds set points. "Watched by Queen Elizabeth of the Belgians, the drama occured in the first set, when McKane recoverd from 0-3 to hold two set points on her service at 5-4 40-15. "In the second set Kitty played into Suzanne's hands by coming to the net too much."

* From "Ayres' Almanack" (1923): "Winning the first three games against Miss McKane, the champion was caught by a fine effort of brilliant all-round play, a resistance which unquestionably shook her confidence and provoked errors of timing. At 5-4 the English girl went strongly to 40-15 on her own service, only to lose the next two points (the second by a drive which hit the top of the net and fell the wrong side), and ultimatley the game. Miss McKane, still playing most gallantly, led 6-5, and again at 8-7, but she was never within a point of the set again. Winning the sixteenth game from 15, and the next two after a longer effort, Mlle Lenglen took the set at 10-8. In the second set Miss McKane led 2-1, but lost the next four [five] games."

Up to that point Lenglen had been so dominant that she dropped not a single game until the semis.

Missing is Suzanne's great rival Molla Mallory, who sailed for England to compete at Wimbledon the very day of the Lenglen-McKane match.

Ryan survived a match point in her third round match vs. the formidable Peacock of India. Peacock "reveled in the heat" but netted the ball time after time in the third, defeating herself.

A funny incident happened in round 2, when it was reported that "a new star" had come to challenge Lenglen. Even her name was perfect for tennis. Princess Lobkowiczova beat Satterwaite (a top tenner) 6-0 6-0 with "a peculiar twisting serve". It was obvious the reporter had never seen the match the next day when a furious Satterwaite stormed the tournament office to inform them that she had won 6-0 6-0, not the Princess! The official had given the referee the correct score but the wrong winner.

Eleanor Goss (US) withdrew before the start of the event.

A year of big changes. The site is moved from Worple Road to Church Road, the present facilities for "The Championships".

The overwhelming popularity of Lenglen is a major factor in the move, as crowds were packed to overflowing for all her matches. When people waited in line to see her it was said, "There's a Lenglen-line a winding".

The Challenge Round is finally abolished. Again, Suzanne was a factor, for by playing through more people had a chance to see her. A poll of players wanted to abolish it. "Suzanne as champion, was consulted on the matter and she agreed to the change."

The crowd for Suzanne's second round match vs. English heroine McKane set a record for the most people to view a match in England. Lenglen won the first set so easily at 6-1 that she didn't even have to hit a volley. In set 2 McKane led 3-0 before Lenglen fought back. At 4-4 there was "tremendous excitement" as Kitty had a break point, "but a perfect forehand down the line saved the game for Suzanne". The British home crowd urged Kitty on until she finally fell at 6-1 7-5.

In the quarters old foe Elizabeth Ryan extended the goddess in set two. A visibly tiring Suzanne eeked by at 8-6 to close it out.

One of the wettest Wimbledons on record, the weather delayed matters until the third Wednesday.

On Saturday of July 8 the final was held. An expectant crowd came to see if Molla could repeat her shock victory of 1921 in America. Demand was so intense that "spectators started queuing at dawn". Rain delayed play until 7pm. Both finalists ageed to go on rather than wait until Monday, as there was no Sunday play in those days.

At the unheard of time of 7:01 they went on. 25 minutes later Suzanne had regained total supremacy by destroying her rival 6-2 6-0



Second round – Suzanne Lenglen (FRA) d. Kathleen McKane 6-1 7-5

From the London 'Times', Saturday, July 1, 1922:

"Mlle Lenglen wins

"From our Special Correspondent

"Mlle Suzanne Lenglen beat Miss Kathleen McKane 6-1, 7-5 – when she needed points she got them. No one who has seen Mlle Lenglen play at Wimbledon during the last three Championships can doubt her technical capacity; she has all the essential strokes – drive or volley, forehand or backhand, the positions that consistent practice enable her to assume automatically make it as easy as possible for her racket to carry out her purpose, and she has the speed to take up the positions. Last summer in England her supremacy was unassailable; subsequently she retired after losing the first set to Mrs Molla Mallory in the U.S.A. Ladies' Championships, and her withdrawal threw doubts on her stamina or her ability to play an uphill game.

"Now no one doubts Miss McKane's ability to play an uphill game, and as she, like Mrs Geraldine Beamish, has beaten Mrs Mallory this summer, the gallery, for all their now proverbial adoration of Mlle Lenglen, were not without patriotic hopes that Miss McKane might win back a singles championship for this country. But Miss McKane is the most dashing of players and, therefore, variable. For her to win it was admitted that she had to be absolutely at her best for two sets – and this could only be said of her at intervals in the second.

"It was Miss McKane, however, who made the strokes that caught the eye – hard, low drives into both corners, followed, when necessary, by wholehearted volleys; she was obviously putting all her strength into both volleys and drives, enjoying both the effort and the risk, and that is what makes her a most delightful player to watch. Realising, no doubt, that she had to bring off her best strokes to win, she tried gallantly but broke down too often in her drive, apparently through endeavouring to combine it with a run-in.

"The stands were crowded and silent while the two ladies knocked up; it was a long knock-up, and then Miss McKane went ahead with two points amidst cheers courteously repressed. Mlle Lenglen was doing no more than feel her way, but no more was needed; Miss McKane had no touch, and Mlle Lenglen was allowed the lead, which is said to mean so much to her. Miss McKane won the third game, but no other in the first set.

"Whereupon Miss McKane said to herself, like Foch, 'Therefore, I attack' – and attack she did. She hit hard into both corners, ran in, guessed the line the volley was coming, and led 3-0. It was anyone's match, but before one had done saying so the score was four-three, Mlle Lenglen leading. Miss McKane rallied to four-all. In this eighth game she took a ball as it jumped, and the pace at which Mlle Lenglen made for the resulting drop was as remarkable as Miss McKane's quickness of eye.

"In the next game, with Mlle Lenglen serving, Miss McKane won the first two points, lost the next three, recovered to deuce with the longest of lobs, and then made two mistakes. She volleyed the score to five-all, Mlle Lenglen hitting the last service wide. Mlle Lenglen retorted with a love game. In the next – and last – Miss McKane made two faults at 30-all, fought her way to deuce, and saw Mlle Lenglen run in to the last ball, and pass her backhand to backhand."


Quarter-final – Suzanne Lenglen (FRA) d. Elizabeth Ryan (USA) 6-1 8-6

From the London 'Times', Wednesday, July 5, 1922:

"Mlle Lenglen wins

"From our special correspondent

"Mlle Suzanne Lenglen hit the ball past Miss Elizabeth Ryan a little before 8 o'clock at Wimbledon yesterday, and so won the second set of their match in addition to the first. But the score was 8-6, and had she lost that set, as she nearly did, it did not look as if she had the physical strength to have embarked on a third, much less win it.

"Last year Mlle Lenglen beat Miss Ryan 6-2, 6-0, and well as Miss Ryan plays she seemed a class better. This year Mlle Lenglen seems to have lost in vigour, and, while the method is there whatever the stroke, there is not the same control over balls which require some forcing. She broke down over these where she would not have done so last year, and, her rally play being less close than it was formerly, she allowed Miss Ryan chances of taking the offensive which would not have come her way but for a certain weakness in Mlle Lenglen's driving.

"Mlle Lenglen has a formula for Miss Ryan; it was successful last year, and it succeeded in the first set yesterday. She plays against her as if she were a fencing master with an eager and promising pupil. She allows Miss Ryan to thrust, and for a time makes no attempt to do more than return the ball in a way to prevent thrusting being too easy. Sometimes Miss Ryan breaks down herself; if she does not, she is enticed up and then, instead of the parry, there is a sudden thrust back, and it is seen that Miss Ryan had left some point unguarded. It is the thrust back that is the salt of this 'safety first' driving; last year it seemed to win whenever Mlle Lenglen wanted, and to be driven home with no other effort than an effort of will. In this match – even in the first set, which Mlle Lenglen won at 6-1 – there was less certainty about it. When she had this rather diffiuclt stroke to do, not infrequently she would hit the net and do things like that.

"To realise how well she – judged by human standards – was playing, one had to look not at her, but at Miss Ryan. Miss Ryan was all over the court, chopping hard at the backhand corner, and always ready to rush in for a volley if the returns she got were short, and to hit the volley hard. She was making nearly all the gallery strokes, but there were mistakes mixed up with them, and in the first set, though she won her share of rallies, she won but one game.

"In the next set Miss Ryan played her best game – a better game than she played in the same match last year – and it nearly won her the match. At the beginning of it Miss Ryan was above her best, and we were fortunate enough to see Mlle Lenglen discard the formula and play at full speed. In the first game she was at her greatest for the first time. Miss Ryan had pulled herself together for an effort and was inspired. She came in 'according to plan' (Mlle Lenglen's plan), but helped herself to something like her very full smash, which is according to no plan except Miss Ryan's. Mlle Lenglen ran for the smash – at full speed almost for the first time – and returned it; there was another smash from Miss Ryan, and again she ran and returned it; there was a sharp rally, in which Mlle Lenglen appeared on the defensive, and then suddenly she hit straight into the exposed forehand corner; it was the formula after all – supremely vindicated.

"Three times in that game, while apparently having the worse of the rally, she hit into that corner – but the game was fairly won by Miss Ryan on her chops and smashes. She hit her hardest, found the inside of the lines, and went ahead 3-2; to the end she hit as hard, but was not always so fortunate. Mlle Lenglen kept in front, but only with a struggle, and in the tenth game, when she broke down over strokes that were not hard, it looked as if she had exhausted her stamina. In the eleventh game she was herself again, with a great passing stroke straight down her own forehand line; once she reached match point, and was pulled back to deuce; and it was only in the fourteenth game that she drew Miss Ryan up for the last time, and scored the winning point."


Semi-final - Suzanne Lenglen (FRA) d. Irene Peacock (RSA) 6-4 6-1

From the London 'Times', Saturday, July 8, 1922

"Mlle Lenglen and Water

"Mlle Suzanne Lenglen in a scholarly way beat Mrs Irene Peacock, 6-4, 6-1, and those in the exposed seats paid for the spectacle with a drenching in the middle of the second set. One got the impression that Mrs Peacock was making all the brilliant strokes and then more than cancelling them by giving points away. Mlle Lenglen won yesterday - whatever she may do later - on her capacity to do what is sufficient with the easy ones. Her opponent cannot play her at her own game and pat the ball back because then she hits boundaries like Hobbs - without moving; and if her opponent hits to win, then in the nature of things she also hits to lose. That is how she beat Mrs Peacock - conserving her own strength, but never giving her opponent a chance to play the waiting game, the game she would wish to play.

"Helped by mistakes of Mrs Peacock's Mlle Lenglen led 4-1; in the sixth game Mrs Peacock began to place the ball and to give as good as she got. Mlle Lenglen was clearly not anxious to run, and with Mrs Peacock finding the corners it became for a space a match and not an exhibition. With admirable steadiness Mlle Lenglen went in front twice when challenged and won the set at 6-4 with a love game.

"There was again a promise of a match at the beginning of the next set - Mrs Peacock winning a point with a deep smash for which she stepped coolly back, and another at the end of a long rally with a stop volley taken below the net from a hard, dipping drive. Mlle Lenglen continued to win rallies rather than make strokes, but in the course of the next four games - which she won - there was as deadly a straight backhand drive as one can hope to see, and a fast service or two when they were wanted and not expected. Then came the storm.

"Mlle Lenglen had two yards the better length when play was resumed. It was enough; but she won points with two perfect backhand drives just to show that the Complete Lawn Tennis Player is weatherproof. Mrs Peacock earned a hearty cheer for winning a rally in which she fell down, and she brought off two brave volleys when all was obviously lost, but Mlle Lenglen progressed serenely to within a point of the match and won it with a champion's stroke, a fast backhand drive across the court which would have beaten Mr Bill Tilden. Her last two games were games of quality."

Wimbledon singles final

From the London 'Times', Monday, July 10, 1922:

"Lawn Tennis – Mlle Lenglen wins

"From our special correspondent

"By beating Mrs Molla Mallory 6-2, 6-0, Mlle Suzanne Lenglen has settled that little matter outstanding since her visit last autumn to America, when she retired on account of indisposition after losing a set to that lady. Thereupon some people said that there were other ladies who could play lawn tennis as well as she did; that we in England did not believe; but the persistent rumours about her health were confirmed in her earlier matches by a certain lack of zest in her play, and by an occasional tendency to be beaten – just like anyone else – by a stroke merely because it was a good stroke. She seldom so far forgot herself as to be beaten by any other. Her return match with Mrs Mallory became, therefore, the most eagerly discussed match of the meeting. Before it no one predicted the issue without hedging; it was Mlle Lenglen's stamina, not her technical superiority, that was in question.

"We in England have now seen Mrs Mallory, the American lady champion, win many matches and lose a few; we put her in the first class with Miss Elizabeth Ryan, Miss Kathleen McKane, Mrs Geraldine Beamish, and Mrs Irene Peacock; but when Mlle Lenglen left us last summer we did not put her in any class at all; she was above classes; she was the cavalry officer of the saying:– 'First there is the cavalry officer and then there is his charger, and then there is nothing, and then there is nothing, and then there is the infantry officer.' On Saturday she sprang lightly into the saddle again.

"Mrs Mallory played well, as well in this country as we have ever seen her play. Her speed about the court, her gallant counter-strokes when attacked, her indomitable courage, and her gracious acceptance of whatever fortune sends, make her a most delightful player to watch. All the talk about her last match with Mlle Lenglen must have made this return match as much an anxiety to her as to her opponent, but she never wavered when in rally after rally her best strokes were countered by others better still, and with five-love against her in the second set she ran her hardest for the last ball.

"It is Mlle Lenglen's strength that to pick out any stroke of hers for special commendation would be unfair to the others. If one had to pick one, it would be the backhand drive, because with most players it is a weakness. In this match, by comparison, it was a weakness in Mrs Mallory, though against most opponents she would have won points with it outright again and again. Mlle Lenglen was much more consistently severe in her hitting than she had been hitherto; perhaps her length was a couple of feet shorter than in her great match against Mrs Lambert Chambers in 1919, but she kept Mrs Mallory near the baseline, and when she let her up it was to Mrs Mallory's undoing. Quite often at the end of a long rally she would return a short one as if under compulsion; Mrs Mallory would dash in, and in her anxiety to seize the chance would hit too low.

"One noticed after a bit that Mlle Lenglen was well back when she hit these short ones, and that they dropped into the middle of the court so that Mrs Mallory was tempted to hit hard and across with little room to allow of a fast ball dropping in. One could see that Mlle Lenglen was dominant without analysing her strokes; against Mrs Beamish, Mrs Mallory stood in the centre of a circle, and Mrs Beamish ran on the circumference; in this match it was for the most part Mrs Mallory who was running while Mlle Lenglen in the centre moved rhythmically in an anapaest measure – two short, springing dance steps and a long stride.

"Mlle Lenglen began with a love game; in the second, after a mis-hit, she won a point with an untakable drive down her forehand line; Mrs Mallory hooked back one equally untakable and then won the game with a net-cord. The third was won by Mlle Lenglen to love, and the fourth, after long rallies. The next suggested a match; both played excellently, and in the effort to win Mlle Lenglen hit three times just over Mrs Mallory's backhand line. In the sixth Mrs Mallory hit into the net when enticed up; in the seventh her backhand was weak and was allowed no respite; in the last Mlle Lenglen won through the power and certainty of her own backhand drive.

"In this first set Mlle Lenglen had given away a few points; she hardly gave away one in the next. In the first game she took a point with a sudden fast service and outlasted Mrs Mallory in the rallies; in the second Mrs Mallory made a very short half-hit; Mlle Lenglen was on it in a flash and killed the low-bounding tricky thing as if it had been a smash she had been waiting for; in the third Mrs Mallory did marvels in saving – about her twelfth stroke in one rally was a slammed backhand volley from the baseline; it brought both ladies up; there was some sharp thrusting at the net, and then Mlle Lenglen struck deep into the forehand corner.

"The match should be remembered for a stroke Mlle Lenglen made in the next game; Mrs Mallory got a high-bouncing short one near her backhand line; she swept it with all her strength into the backhand corner opposite; Mlle Lenglen took three long strides that brought her almost to the side canvas, flung out swiftly, but without haste, a long arm, and won the point and the game with a superb backhand drive into Mrs Mallory's forehand corner. She went on serenely to take the set. She was winning so easily that many of the spectators hurried off to dinner instead of waiting to applaud. They had been balked of the contest they love, but they had seen wonderful lawn tennis."

Draw notes:

There were 2 foreigners in the singles draw of 54.

Lois Bickle=Mrs Howard Bickle
Farquhar=1899 champ Marion Jones



Mallory shows her mettle from the start with a double bagel win in round one that took all of 17 minutes. She is seeded first-the first seeding ever in a US women's title. Last year's fiasco with Lenglen and Mallory meeting in the 2nd round has convinced the USTA that seeding is the way to go.

A young sensation has arisen from the West to challenge Molla. Helen Wills wears her schoolgirl uniform to the court, but she is more apt to play the role of teacher than student. Even at 16 she posseses a better serve and net play than all entries. Only Molla is her superior off the ground. Helen whipped through the draw until she met Jessup in the quarters. Marion's serve and volleys won her a set before Wills barely pulled out the second. Helen's power took the third easily. Against 35 yr. old May Bundy in the semis Helen resorted to drop shots with telling effect, "though she was rather prone to overwork it." Helen tried off-pace tactics in the final. The change of pace didn't faze Molla a bit, as the Norse star ran Wills off the court in a 6-3 6-1 final witnessed by only 2,500. The lack of foreign entries kept many a fan away.
