In the final Edith Hannam and Charles Dixon needed three sets to defeat another British team, Helen Aitchison and Roper Barrett. Hannam also won the covered court ladiesâ singles at Stockholm, while Dixon won the silver medal in the menâs singles, and, with Alfred Beamish, a bronze medal in the menâs doubles. Two months later, Dixon skipped the Olympic lawn tennis event to play at Wimbledon where he won the doubles with Roper Barrett.
