From the New York Times, using the Associated Press:

During this event Molla Mallory grabs headlines by landing in Paris on March 17 and heading straight for chic dres shops. Molla declares she is merely here on vacation with her husband. Nontheless she is entered in several Riviera events. Molla stated , "I am not coming here with a chip on my shoulder,looking for trouble. I like to play tennis to while away the time on the long sunny afternoons on the Riviera. I am challenging no one and expect to receive no challenges, but will play all comers."

The arrival of Molla Mallory has caused a beehive of activity on the Riviera. Few believe Molla's repeated pronouncements that she is here merely for a vacation. Fans are disspointed when Suzanne Lenglen withdraws from the singles-fueling speculation that she fears Mallory despite convincingly beating her last year at Wimbledon. Many speculate that Suzanne opts out of the singles to evaluate how Kitty Mckane and Molla Mallory are on clay, a tactic she will repeat in 1926 when Helen Wills invades the Riviera.

In contrast Molla draws compliments for appearing for her first round match in spite of just arriving from the States after an exhaustinf sea voyage. She remarks after a tough struggle that, "I am at a loss to understand why people at home take such an interest in these matches here. ... I do not attach to these games one fifth the importance that I would to Wimbledon or the American championships. If I did I certainly would have prepared for them, and would not have entered in my present playing form."

In an interview the next day after her withdrawal Lenglen responds to a question about being "afraid" of Mallory by terminating the interview, heatedly replying, "I am not afraid of any woman tennis player in the world." Officials were reported to be upset with the French diva, as new stands were erected and sold out in anticipation of a Lenglen-Mallory clash. When La Lenglen gets a cold reception from spectators at the start of her first doubles match she declares she was never entered in the event, protresting that the tournament director M. Simon only announced her entry to boost ticket sales. "Gate receipts first, and let the spectators dissapointment spend itself on Suzanne." She is only entered in the doubles so her partner Liz Ryan "would not lose." Lenglen's father declares he will lodge a demand for an investigation to clear his daughter. Luckily for Suzanne her devoted fans cannot stay angry at her for long; she got an ovation from the crowd at the end of her first match. By the end of the week the club issues a statement: "The committee of La Festa Club of Monte Calro declares it never announced that Mlle Lenglen would play in the singles of the tournament beginning Saturday, Feb 24, knowing that she was ailing and was coming to Monte Carlo only through courtesy."

Meanwhile Molla gets better, though she declares that she hears it takes 3 weeks to get used to the clay courts, noting she hasn't played "on dirt" since the World Hard Court event in 1921. Molla has been seen practicing 4 or 5 hours daily with Phyllis Satterwaite. The steady Satterwaite has won all of their practice sets.

A couple of days later Molla crashes out in both sinhles and doubles. Her famed forehand lacks its usual punch, and in both singles and doubles she repeatedly errs off her backhand. The largest crowd in Monte Carlo history comes to see the doubles match QF vs Lenglen.

Doubles final only the second time Lenglen/Ryan ever lost a set a a pair-the other, the 1919 Wimbledon final, also featured Mrs Chambers with Ethel Larcombe. Ryan was the weak link-with pundits decalring that she looked overtennised. Suzanne and Elizabeth recover from 3-4 in the third to preserve their perfect record.

The whole event is sold out in anticipation of a Lenglen-Mallory that fails to materialize. Be it poor form or a weak ankle Molla is upset in her first match here as some 2-3,000 look on in shock. The previous week as some cynics asserted that Lenglen withdrew out of fear of facing Mallory. Now it is Molla's turn, with some whispering she tanked on purpose to avoid a crushing defeat by Suzanne. Apparently unperturbed, Molla announces she will play on. Her only negative comment was about the officiating, with 3 or 4 close calls going against her.

The final score of 6-2 7-5 would normally indicate a close and exciting final, as few are able to even stretch Lenglen in singles. Instead play was lackluster, neither woman coming to net all all. Even the baseline play was devoid of interest as Kitty and Suzanne each waited for the other to make an error. The wet courts may have been a factor, dampening both the bounce of the ball and the spirit. Suzanne was lucky as a net cord helped her win the 9th game.

Afterwards Kitty said, "I suppose I shall be thirty before I can win a set from her." Suzanne had her own challenges, being upset with fans who "even applaud when I make a double fault."

Molla and Lenglen met at last in singles.

The day before their match:
Suzanne Lenglen: "I will beat her tomorrow, never fear."
Molla Malory: "Well, we get a crack at the champion tomorrow"

Betting odds were at 5 to 1 in favor of Lenglen, with even money that Molla would not get 5 games.

* From "Ayres' Almanack" (1924): "The meeting of Mlle Lenglen and Mrs Mallory in the semi-final attracted considerable interest, although, in view of the relative form shown by the two players on the Riviera, little doubt was entertained about the result.

"At this, the fourth of their engagements, the champion had the satisfaction of winning two love sets, scoring 50 points to the 18 of Mrs Mallory. The tie lasted twenty-five minutes, and if it be said that the American champion hit with more confidence and with better length than in any of her previous singles matches in the South of France, the conclusive character of Mlle Lenglen's victory can be gauged. She did not overwhelm Mrs Mallory, nor can it be denied that many chances of scoring were unaccepted by the American champion because of faulty timing; nevertheless, the French girl demonstrated that her equipment of strokes is much superior to that of Mrs Mallory, while her strategic sense, trained by a wider experience, is more highly developed.

"Mrs Mallory's service was so innocuous that the champion could take the defensive in her drive each time. She only came to the net once, it being evident that good length and accurate placing from the back of the court were sufficient to win virtually all the rallies. Naturally she directed her strokes to Mrs Mallory's weaker backhand, and though the strain on this wing was borne with more security than previous matches had suggested, a wide fast return was usually successful."

Lenglen's win is so decisive that only 2 games went to deuce. Molla never even had a game point. She only won 8 points in the first set and 11 in the second. suzanne scored 7 winners to 2 for Molla. Molla made 19 errors in the net and 26 out to only 7 net errors and 10 out for Suzanne.

The scorecard was framed and put on display at the Nice Club, where it may still be seen to this day.

Overlooked in all of the ballyhoo was the coming out of young Lili de Alvarez of Spain, who was unlucky to draw veteran Elizabeth Ryan early in the event.

Lenglen's loss in the semis of the mixed doubles was her first in any match since she retired to Molla Mallory in the second round of the 1921 US Championships. She is gracious in defeat, throwing her arms around Ryan and declaring, "You played magnificently. One must lose sometime, and I prefer losing to you rather than anyone in the world."

FI: d. Kitty Mckane (GB)/John Gilbert (GB) 6-2 10-8

Suzanne wins her 3rd consecutive World Hard Court title before 6,000.

Lenglen caused a stir by fainting. She won her singles first, though both she and Mckane performed below par, the English star often made errors off the backhand and Suzanne made a high number of errors herself. She collapsed after the singles, but went on to win the mixed. By the time she went on court for her last final (the ladies doubles) Lenglen "seemed resigned to defeat from the start."

As Beamish's last shot flew by her Suzanne declared "I simply can't do it." She later declared it was "a silly stunt" to attempt 3 finals in one day, and vowed never to repeat it.

Lenglen is in tears at the end of her final because the crowd was clapping for her Golding more than her after a disputed line-call. Golding actually had the spectators in shock because she had an unheard of 4-0 lead in set two! The diva was so distraught she asked her father if she should continue. He told her to play on. Lenglen recovered to win six games runnign and the match. Afterwards Papa suggested she might boycott Paris in the future.
