Wimbledon's jubilee year sees past champions presented with medals on opening day. She gets a loud cheer as she bows before the Queen to receive her silver medal. The cheers turn to jeers days later when a scheduling conflict leads the British public to believe that Suzanne has snubbed the Queen, who waited for a Lenglen that did not appear on Centre Court. The stress gets to Lenglen and she withdraws from all events. Wimbledon is her last event as an amateur. She had planned to enter the Midland Chmps in Edgbaston and the Irish Chmps, but promply withdrew from these events.
