1891 Excerpt: ...Besides this event Campbell won the Bay Shore and
Narragansett Pier tournaments. Of the nine others ranked Campbell
did not play C. A. Chase, V. G. Hall and J. S. Clark; but none of
these three men rank high enough to dispute his position at the
top. Hobart was the only man who beat Campbell without losing to
him in return--they only met once. This defeat of Campbell occurred
in a very closelycontested match (the score being 7-5, 10-12, 7-5)
at the Westchester invitation tournament, when Campbell was playing
in his poorest "form" of the season. Hobart, however, was beaten by
Knapp at Newport in three straight sets, and Knapp succumbed the
following day to Campbell. Huntington, Knapp and Slocum are
Campbell's nearest rivals for the laurel wreath, but an analysis of
their matches will show that Campbell should be placed above them

semi-finals, final and championship rounds. Against Slocum he
played twice and won both times, while in his only match with Knapp
he beat him by three sets to one. Huntington is the highest of the
three, and a summary of his six meetings with Campbell shows that
the latter won 4 matches, 12 sets and 101 games, while Huntington
only secured 2 matches, 7 sets and 81 games. R. P. Huntington, Jr.,
of Yale College, and W. P. Knapp, an ex-Yale man, played very
evenly throughout the season, though the former appeared many more
times than the latter. Their three meetings during the season were
at the Westchester tournament, Huntington winning two of them. The
odd one, which was the final round in the tournament, was started
one day, and after a very evenly-contested match had to be
postponed on account of darkness, with the score even on the
deciding set. Huntington ea...
