Part II of III

This list of Wilding’s singles titles has been drawn up with the help of the wikipedia entry on Wilding, at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Wilding and the tennis results website at http://www.tennisarchives.com/index.php. I have also used old sporting gazettes and tennis magazines such as “The Field”, “Lawn Tennis and Badminton” and “Der Lawn-Tennis-Sport” (later “Lawn-Tennis und Golf”) as well as old newspapers from Australia and New Zealand.

The list is incomplete and is not meant to be definitive. When Wilding won more than one singles event at the same tournament, e.g. Wiesbaden in the years 1906-08, this is counted as one tournament win. His current total of singles titles is 111, broken down as follows: Grass, 33; Clay, 66; Wood (indoors), 12.
