Summary

The best American doubles team consisted of the 18-year-old Helen Wills, who won the Olympic singles gold medal, and the 38-year-old Hazel Wightman. In the final they won easily over Britain’s Phyllis Covell and Kitty McKane, 7-5, 8-6. Wightman won four US Singles titles (1909-11, 1919), and 16 US titles overall, but is better known as the donor of the Wightman Cup, the women’s international team trophy, and the female equivalent of the Davis Cup.
