  • Short Summary

    Womens' singles match from tennis' Wightman Cup event at Wimbledon.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Wimbledon. 'At the Mecca of Tennis' - America retains the Wightman Cup by four events to three."

    Wimbledon, London.

    Two women tennis players walk out onto court at Wimbledon. As this is the Wightman Trophy one is presumably English and the other from the United States of America. The two players pose by the net.

    Pan across the Wimbledon crowd to show the players (I think this is centre court). Shots of the women playing their singles match. They come to the net to shake hands.

    Sound Track Missing

    NB. As there is no sound track identification of the players involved is difficult - any information please?

    As the players walk out on court, the player in the jacket is Helen Wills-Moody of the US. Dont' recognise the British player.
