The original official programme for the final day of the 1938 Wimbledon Championships. DON BUDGE has beaten Britain's BUNNY AUSTIN in the Gentlemen's Singles Final a day earlier, and the score of 6-1, 6-0, 6-3 has been printed into the programme. This was the third leg of the first-ever "Grand Slam," making this example particularly valuable to collectors.
The Centre Court Order of Play for Saturday July 2nd is entirely made up of Finals: Ladies' Doubles, Ladies' Singles, Gentlemen's Doubles and Mixed Doubles. This was the afternoon on which Helen Wills Moody won her eighth and last Wimbledon singles title.
