The greatest female player in the first decade of the twentieth century, Dorothea Lambert Chambers of Great Britain collected seven singles championships at Wimbledon and appeared in the final of that event no less than 11 times. In 1919, she gave a shining performance in defeat, twice reaching match point before losing a gripping clash against the renowned Suzanne Lenglen. A solid and resourceful player from the back of the court who combined touch and power without glaring weaknesses, she represented her nation in Wightman Cup until her mid-forties.
