Re: 1946

Jadwiga Jedrzejowska from Poland was the runner-up to Dorothy Round at Wimbledon in 1937. Jadwiga was 24 years old and had been playing there since 1931. Two months later, she played the U. S. National Championships for the first time. She made it all the way to the final before losing
to Anita Lizana from Chile. Lizana was 21 years old and also playing Forest Hills for the first time. Both Jadwiga and Anita were very popular with American tennis fans. They were extremely talented players who were always smiling and having fun on court even when playing for prestigious titles. Many believed that they would be among the world's best players for years to come.

But those expectations were not fulfilled. Jadwiga played Wimbledon in 1939 and then returned to Poland. She was in Warsaw when the Germans invaded. There was no news of her fate until the end of the war almost 6 years later. Mary Hardwick, who had back-channel contacts in German-occupied areas, was able to get some information about Gottfried Von Cramm but heard nothing about Jadwiga. When the war started, Jadwiga put away her racquets for the duration and tried to avoid being noticed by the Germans. At first, she worked as a waitress in Warsaw and then got a job at a shoe factory. In 1941, the Germans found out who she was. They asked her to play some exhibitions in Germany and promised that she would be treated very well. She refused. Two years later, they renewed their offer. She again refused.

Despite not playing for almost 7 years, she entered Wimbledon in 1946. She arrived in London on the Wednesday before the start of the tournament. She arrived without racquets and clothes to play in. Dorothy Bundy gave her suitable clothes for her first round match on Centre Court. Other friends provided shoes and racquets. Jadwiga had only 2 days of practice before having to play 8th-seeded Simone Iribarne Lafargue of France. Jadwiga's serve was still powerful, but she was slow getting around the court. Simone exploited this weakness with frequent, unreachable drop shots. Jadwiga lost by the respectable score of 6-4, 6-4. She was optimistic about her tennis future. In 1947, she got married and played Wimbledon for the last time, losing in the second round.
