Suzanne Lenglen won five matches for the loss of no games. Helen Wills did not play in the singles event at this tournament, but she and Suzanne Lenglen met across the net for the first time in the mixed doubles final.

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1927): "Uncertain off the ground and carrying their lobbing tactics to excess, Aeschlimann and Miss Wills could only win three games against the infallible precision of Mlle Lenglen and the severe driving power of her opponent."
