Interest in the Riviera season is starting to wane. Lenglen is gone, with no possibility now of a rematch with Wills. No one is left to challenge Wills now that she has proven she can beat everyone else. The event suffers another other blow when German Nelly Neppach finally caves in to pressure from her federation and returns back to Berlin. The German federation threatened to bar her from all German events,ignoring her contention that she was Austrian. The coup de grace is the withdrawal of Lili de Alvarez due to fatigue. Lili's father ordered her to rest one week.

Mumford's slow and defensive game leads to an upset over Bennett in the semis, but Helen kills ball after ball for an easy victory. Organizers complain about financial ruin due to low attendance.
