This was the inaugural tournament at this particular club. Suzanne Lenglen did not play in the singles event. Sattterwaite wins the singles and Suzanne impressively takes the doubles, but all the attention of the public is focused on paris, where on Feb 15 American Helen Wills is met at the train station by an excited throng of over 1,000. Wills arrives in Nice, meeting Suzanne in passing. A day later the Americna watched Lenlgen and Brugnon win the mixed title.
* Toto was the preferred nickname of Jacques Brugnon, the doubles specialist among the four "French Muskateers."
* Mrs Jones is not the same person as Evelyn Jones.
* Lady Blanche Gladys Roundway (1879-1969) was married to Edward Colston, Lord (Or Baron) Roundway on 28 April 1904. Lord Roundway was a member of Parliament and died 29, March, 1944.
Their only child, a daughter, died tragically from a fall at their manor house. Lady Roundway was the daughter of George Duddell of Queen's Park, Brighton, and Hong Kong.
