I think that's a footnote I incorporated into the main text from Wallis Myers' "Captain Anthony Wilding". So Wallis Myers probably does mean Wimbledon, the World Hard Court Championships and World Covered Court Championships when he mentions Wilding's triumphs in 1913. That would make sense.

Certainly, the fact that a player of Wilding's stature played in the World Covered Court Championships in 1913 gave that particular tournament a status it didn't really have in the other years of its short life.
