1923 Suzanne Lenglen
1924 Suzanne Lenglen
1925 Suzanne Lenglen
1926 Suzanne Lenglen
1927 Eileen Bennett (GBR)
1928 Elizabeth Ryan (USA)
1929 Tournament not held
1930 Simone Mathieu
1931 Betty Nuthall (GBR)
1932 Simone Mathieu
1933 Lolette Payot (SUI)
1934 Phyllis Satterthwaite (GBR)
1935 Simone Mathieu
1936 Simone Mathieu
All these tournaments were already present in the main pages.
From 1922 to '28 under "Tournaments of incertain denomination" , 1930 and '31 under "Nice Lawn Tennis Club Champs." , 1934 and '35 under "Nice Championships".
Except the "South of France Championships" (hard to fix themselves!), the other tournaments held in Nice are difficult to denominate, because often they had not a name and the newspapers named them as first meeting, second meeting, and the same denominations "Nice Lawn Tennis Club Champs." and "Nice Championships" are uncertain, they seem headlines of newspapers only.
