Overview

There were three different sets of events held in the sport we now call tennis. In 1908, "tennis" usually referred to the specific indoor game often called court tennis, real tennis, royal tennis, or jeu de paume, and which was contested at the 1908 Olympics. In those days, "tennis," as we now know it, was usually contested on grass courts, and was termed lawn tennis. However, in addition, an indoor version of the sport was also on the 1908 Olympic program, termed covered court tennis.

The lawn tennis events of the 1908 Olympics were held at that renowned facility, the All-England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, better known to the rest of the world as Wimbledon. The covered court events were held at Queen's Club in West Kensington, which also hosted the jeu de paume and racquets events of the 1908 Olympics.

The 1908 Olympic events were basically European and British Empire championships. No Americans or Australian tennis players competed in London. Outside of Europe, the only other players were from Canada and South Africa. In the covered court events, the representation was even more limited; only tennis players from Great Britain and Sweden took part.

Six tennis events were contested at the 1908 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom.[1] Indoor tennis events, on what were officially called 'covered courts', were held for the first time, along with the usual outdoor events. Women's tennis returned, with women's singles (but not women's doubles or mixed doubles) and indoor women's singles. The indoor events were held at the covered courts of the Queens Club and began on May 6, 1908, ahead of the official start of the Games while the outdoor tournament was played on grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club at Worple Road from July 6 through July 11, 1908. In total 50 players, 40 men and 10 women, competed. Five nations made their tennis debuts, while five more returned to competition for a total of ten nations. Two players, Les Poidevin and Wimbledon champion Anthony Wilding were nominated for Australasia but through administrative bungling they were not entered.

Summary

The outdoor version of men's singles attracted a meagre field, lacking the top British, American, and Australian players. The best British player of the era was Arthur "Wentworth" Gore, but he competed only in the covered court events. The top American player was Bill Larned, and the top Australasians were Norman Brookes (AUS) and Tony Wilding (NZL), but they did not compete.

In their absence, Josiah Ritchie won the gold medal, taking the final in four sets over the German, Otto Froitzheim. Ritchie was a good player but never the top player in the world. His other titles in his career include: 1903-1906 and 1908 German singles, 1909 and 1914 British covered court singles, 1907 Irish singles, 1902, 1904, 1906, and 1909 London singles, 1908 and 1910 Wimbledon doubles (with Tony Wilding), 1907-07 British covered court doubles (with Tony Wilding), and the 1904 and 1906 German doubles.

Summary

By 1908 there was no dominant doubles team in England or world tennis. The Doherty brothers, Reggie and Laurie, had been the top pair, winning eight Wimbledon titles from 1897-1905. But Laurie retired in 1906 because of health problems. However Reggie played on, partnering various players, and with George Hillyard, they won the 1908 Olympic doubles. In addition to his doubles titles with his brother, Reggie Doherty won the Wimbledon singles in 1897-1900. He played eight Davis Cup rubbers, losing only one match, and that against the top American of the era, Bill Larned.

George Hillyard was Secretary of the All-England Club for 17 years, 1907-1924, and was married to the great British female player, Blanche Bingley. At 44 years of age, he was beyond his prime at the 1908 Olympics. He had won the British covered court doubles in 1890-91 with Harry Scrivener and again in 1904-05 with Laurie Doherty. He was German singles champion in 1897 and 1900. He was also quite accomplished at cricket and golf. Together, Hillyard and Reggie Doherty also won the 1909 South African doubles, their only other title together.

Summary

There were only six players who ended up competing in this event, but it was significant in that the top singles player was one of them, Arthur "Wentworth" Gore. He survived a very difficult semi-final against Josiah Ritchie, who would win the Olympic lawn tennis outdoors later in the year, and then won easily in the final, winning in three sets over George Caridia, representing Britain although he was of Greek origin (né Georgios Karidias).

Finals

There was no match for third place. Eaves, described in the Official Report as "obviously out of condition",[1] had not finished his semifinal match after a tight first set played in great heat. Ritchie, therefore, was awarded the bronze medal.

Summary

 

This was likely the weakest of the tennis tournaments in 1908. Arthur "Wentworth" Gore and Roper Barrett would win the 1909 British covered court title as well. They won a four-set final over George Simond and George Caridia, who had been forced to play 13 sets in their three matches.

Summary

In this unusual tournament, all of the players in the lower half of the draw scratched, leaving the tournament essentially as a series of challenge matches against Dorothy Lambert Chambers. She was more than up to the task. After Agnes Morton defeated Alice Greene in round one, she faced Lambert Chambers, who won three consecutive matches without the loss of a set to win the title.

As Dorothea Douglass, Mrs. Lambert Chambers had won the Wimbledon title in 1903-1904 and 1906. Following her 1907 marriage to Robert Lambert Chambers, she again won Wimbledon in 1910-1911, and 1913-1914, giving her seven titles in all. The runner-up at the 1908 Olympics, Penelope Boothby, would go on to win at Wimbledon in 1909.

Summary

When Dorothy Lambert Chambers scratched in the first round to M„rtha Adlerstr†hle, this tournament became wide open with no clear favorite. The eventual winner, Gladys Eastlake-Smith, claimed only one other major title, that also under covered courts, when she won the 1907 British title for women.
