Hi, Carlo,

I had a look in "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" and it has no information on the 1910 edition of the San Remo tournament in its 1911 edition (for the year 1910).

However, in the "Ayres' LTA" for 1921, in its list of previous winners of the men's singles title in San Remo, it has the following:

1908 Anthony F. Wilding
1909 Artimus Holmes
1910 Artimus Holmes
1911 Anthony F. Wilding
1912 Edward R. Allen
1913 Edward R. Allen
1914 F. Gordon Lowe

Round 1
2 players had byes.
Holmes, Artimus d. Wills, Ernest S. (6-1 6-2)
Routledge, H.B. d. Murray, C.W. (6-4 1-6 6-4)
Semifinals
Holmes, Artimus d. Turton, M. (6-1 6-3)
Routledge, H.B. d. Bostwick, A.C. (2-6 6-4 6-2)
Final
Holmes, Artimus d. Routledge, H.B. (6-0 6-1 6-0).

Does anyone else than Idzznew confirm these results which contradict Ayres' assertion ?
