In 1919 she defeated reigning champion Molla Bjurstedt from Norway in the semifinals in straight sets but was then soundly defeated by compatriot Hazel Hotchkiss Wightman in the final, 1–6, 2–6.[2] A year later, 1920, Bjurstedt revenged her earlier semifinal defeat and Zinderstein again suffered a heavy loss in the final, 3–6, 1–6.

In 1924 she became national singles indoor champion when she defeated the Lilian Scharman, Brooklyn, 6–2, 6–3, in the indoor tournament at Brookline, MA.[3][4]
