Re: Suzanne Lenglen Career Results

This extract is from an article which appeared in "The Field" of 22 January 1925:

"The seven new 'En-Tout-Cas' courts which comprise the Bristol Club at Beaulieu were opened officially last weekend [17 January], when the Duke of Connaught and a large company were present. The inaugural mathces included a double in which the brothers Burke opposed Rendall and Negro, and a 'mixed' match with Mlle Lenglen adopting the role of a male competitor..."

Mixed match: Charles Aeschlimann (SUI)/Suzanne Lenglen d. Lord Cholmondeley (GBR)/Henry G. Mayes (GBR) 6-2, 6-1, [5-7]*

* After easily winning the first two sets, the Swiss-French pair then lost a 'vantage set. No more sets were played.
