Hall of Fame Tennis Writer Steve Flink
July 19, 1874, from the "On This Day In Tennis History" book: On a damp English day, In front on only 200 spectators, Spencer Gore wins the inaugural men’s singles title at Wimbledon, defeating William Marshall 6-1, 6-2, 6-4. The first edition of the tournament that becomes known simply as “The Championships” featured only a men’s singles competition of only 22 entrants, but only 21 showed up. Writes Bud Collins from The Bud Collins History of Tennis, “The title match was held over until the following Monday. Such delay had been indicated in the prospectus to allow for the Eton-Harrow cricket match at Lords. This was the ultimate sporting event so far as the fashionable London world was concerned, and lawn tennis, itself a fashionable sport, did not dream for many years of coming into conflict with that important fixture. Monday turned out wet, and the final was postponed until Thursday, July 19. That day was also damp, but rather than disappoint 200 spectators, each of whom had paid one shilling (then about 25 cents) to see Wimbledon's baptismal final, Gore and Marshall sportingly agreed to play. Gore came up to the net and volleyed. Whether this was entirely sporting was a matter of some debate, as was his striking the ball before it had crossed the net. He won, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4.”
