Summary


In 1911, Jeanne Matthey won the singles title at the Closed French Championships for the third year in a row. In the Challenge Round she beat Marguerite Broquedis, 6-2, 7-5. The latter player (b. 17 April 1893) was arguably the best female lawn tennis player to come from France before Suzanne Lenglen.

At this point in time there was a Challenge Round in the five main events at the French Closed Championships

In 1912, Jeanne Matthey won the women's single title at the Closed French Championships for the fourth consecutive and last time. In the Challenge Round she defeated a married player, Marie Danet, 6-2, 7-5. Marie Danet was the mother of Roger Danet, who would play competitive lawn tennis in the 1920s and have a relationship with Suzanne Lenglen.

Despite her success in the Closed French Championships, Jeanne Matthey did not win any tournament of any significance outside France. However, during her career she did manage to beat Suzanne Lenglen in a singles match twice. Jeanne Matthey's first victory came over Suzanne Lenglen came in 1912, in the semi-final of the tournament held in Compiègne, France. Jeanne Matthey won the match 6-3, 6-1. Suzanne Lenglen was 13 years of age at the time.

Notes: At the age of merely 14 the sensational Suzanne Lenglen almost wins her nations title. She gives Broquedis a strern test in the final. Amazingly this will be Suzanne's last defeat until 1921, when she defaults in the US Nationals. In the doubles final the twin Amblard sisters retain their title.

1919

Though the war was over France was still too devastated to hold a national title or the World's Hard Court. Events were held on the Riviera, where Lenglen remained unbeaten.

We will need access to Tennis et Golf for the full draw.

While Little lists a Mme M Cousin and M(arcel) Cousin, the 1924 edition of Tennis et Golf has her as Mlle Cousin.

---------------------

Summary:

French organizers follow the British and abolish the Challenge Round. This means Suzanne will have to "play through" to defend her titles.

Lenglen is in tears at the end of her final because the crowd was clapping for her Golding more than her after a disputed line-call. Fan uproar made it neccessary to replace the linesmen, but the crowd remained vocal for the underdog. Golding actually had the spectators in shock because she had an unheard of 4-0 lead in set two! The diva was so distraught she asked her father if she should continue. He told her to play on.

Lenglen recovered to win and Papa suggested she might boycott Paris in the future.

By also taking the Doubles and Mixed crowns Lenglen has won the hat trick for the 4th consecutive year.

Draw notes:

The draw is in exact draw order.

Genevieve Cousin/Marcel Cousin were related in some way. probably sister and brother, or possibly cousins.

Mme Germaine Pigueron was the sister of Yvonne Bourgeois.

Mme Florand is listed as Mme Florent by Tennis et Golf. There are numerous other examples of a Mme Florand, who always partnered S Lecaron in major events, as she did here. Thus" Mme Florent" is Mme Florand.

Missing full names for:

Mme Florand
Mlle S. Lacaron

R. Barbas (Male player in the Mixed Doubles)

Tennis et Golf. June 1924, page 238.

---------------------------------------

Summary:

Lenglen was ill much of 1924 and opted not to defend her national title. This opened the door for Didie Vlasto, ranked #2 in France, to come through. Her toughest match was against Mme Golding, who had been runner-up to Lenglen the last 3 years. Once Diddier got past Golding at 6-4 2-6 6-3 the final was a straight set affair.

The ladies final was held on the 15th.

1924 was the very last French Closed National Championships. As a price for joining the International Tennis Federation the United States demanded the ITS discontinue the grandly titled "World Championship" events on Covered Courts (Indoors), Hard Courts (Clay), and Grass.

In practice the Hard Court Championships were held every year in France with the exception of 1922, which was in French speaking Belgium. In essence then it was a French event, and naturally they wanted to keep it that way. As luck would have it the 1924 Olympics were in Paris. As a grand event it filled in nicely for the World Hard Court Championships as a bridge between it and a newly born French International Championships in 1925. This is the modern day "French Open."

Clearly the French Open was really the child of the international World Hard Court event and not the French Nationals. So why does the official list of winners go back to the 1890s and include the French Nationals? Tradition would be first-since it started much earlier (1891) as opposed to the more recent World Championships, which only began in 1912.

French Nationalism may have also played a role. After all, the World Hard Court event didn't carry a French title!

Missing Full names for:

M Beauge
Mme Pierre Canivet is married to Pierre Canivet.
M. Constostavlos (only in the mixed. Almost certianly related to Helene Contostavlos).
De Rauch
Mme Florand
G. Grasset
Mrs Grierson (US)
L. Huchez (Yvonne Huchez is her sister)
S. Lecaron
Mlle Survarna

Missing full names for males in the mixed doubles

Y Das De Kapurthala (India).

Note that the seeding comes directly from the Roland Garros site.The seeding is "off" in the sense that
it only reflects French based players. Perhaps only French players were seeded?

Sources:

Tennis et Golf (A correct draw order)

http://ww2.fft.fr/rolandgarros/pdfpa...mes1925_en.pdf

The New York Times confirms that June 7 was the last day for this event.

-------------------------------------

Summary:


As the ITF had banned the use of the title "World Hard Court", the French decided to repackage the event as the French Open. Lenglen spreadeagles the field with the loss of only 7 games in 5 matches. Thinner with ore muscles, Suzanne's play is more daring than in the past. Critics declare she is at her peak.

Draw notes:

Bordes=Billout=Broquedis.

Nicole Desclercs married, on 19 April 1927, Gérard Jean Gustave Lannes de Montebello. The Montebello family is of noble stock and very prominent in France. The French site lists her as Mme G de Montebello.

The Roland Garros site has Yvonne des Landes de Danoet in the spot of Kleinadel. Kleinadel is correct, as I have the original draw published in Tennis et Golf from 1927. This leads me to think Mlle D'Anoet md and became Mme Kleinadel.


The draw from the official French site:
http://www.fft.fr/rolandgarros/pdfpa...mes1927_en.pdf

http://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/newspap...608-1.2.8.aspx


Summary:

The last French at St. Cloud. The absences of Lenglen(turned pro) and Helen Wills, Kitty Godfree, Liz Ryan and Molla Mallory (all in England tuning up on grass for Wimbledon) hurt the event's luster, though many of the world's first ten were entered.

Kea Bouman wins the first (and so far only) slam by a Dutch female.

Draw notes:


The NYT lists Anthony as "Helen". The RG site lists her as "Julie" Anthony from the US. This is Youtha Anthony, prominent Aussie of this era who was competing overseas throughout 1928.

The NYT refers to Charnelet as "Alice". The Roland Garros site lists her first name as "Germaine".

Though the Roland Garros site had Sylvia Henrotin the lady in question, Sylvia Jung Laufaurie Henrotin, was not wed to Mr Henrotin until 1930.

Mollie Wood (US) played the mixed with Sidney Wood. Was she a wife or sister?

-----------------------------------------------

Sources:

Grand Slam Tennis book (especially for the Mixed results)
Roland Garros site
New York Times


-----------------------------------------------

Summary:

A crowd of 8,000 comes to see Helen win her semifinal, a record for a tennis crowd in France. This is the first year of a new stadium at Roland Garros-the site of the French Open to this very day.

Hundreds of fans stayed to watch a 3 hour-long struggle between Aussie Bickerton and American Anderson. Both were on the verge of collapse after the 43 game match.
