Not sure but Budge may have had an illness or injury that year.
Budge was injured in the US Pro, breaking his nose, and this caused his loss to Faunce.
The nose was still not healed when he lost to Perry at the Forest Hills event.
The two tournaments were played in consecutive weeks.
This is hardly a notable win for Perry, who would have lost in normal circumstances.
