The final round between Miss McAteer and Miss Parker was rather one-sided, and the new Champion won out in straight sets without being pushed. The entries included the foremost women players of Boston, Washington, Chicago and Pittsburgh, and the local Philadelphia Clubs, and the Tournament was looked upon as a decided success.
