  • Short Summary

    Eileen Bennett beats Mrs Mallory in a tennis match at Wimbledon.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "The Wightman Cup - "Our" Eileen Bennett delights crowd with fine win over Mrs. Mallory."

    Wimbledon, London.

    Various shots show Eileen Bennett playing a tennis match against Mrs Mallory; the spectator area is not very crowded. One of the linesmen seen in the background slouches in his chair and has a Hitler moustache. Both players shake hands with the umpire at half time (or could be the end of the match).

    "Mrs Mallory" is Molla Mallory.

    "Both players shake hands with the umpire at half time (or could be the end of the match)." - it's definitely the end of the match.

    Eileen Bennett won the match 6-1 6-3.
