I love this picture.

Regarding Suzanne being Jewish, like Rollo said, first time I've heard of it. I doubt it.

Thanks for posting her results before the Great War, been looking at her photos from early years.

Anybody has more info?
It's the first I have heard of it. with all the information on suzanne it seems very unlikely to me. I would suppose most Europeans have some sort of Jewish ancestry is one goes back far enough, but that's hardly the same as being Jewish.

Re: Suzanne Lenglen Career Results

According to "The Field" of 22 January 1925, Suzanne Lenglen retained her three titles at the Nice Lawn Tennis Club Championships in the closed tournament held the week beginning 12 January 1925.

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.

Re: Suzanne Lenglen Career Results

Thanks to Arthur Wallis Myers, it's possible to dig up a few more results from the Nice Club Championships. Here are some results from the 1921 edition, printed in "The Field" of 1921:

19 January-5 February, Nice Lawn Tennis Club Championships, Nice, France (Clay)

FI: Suzanne Lenglen d. M. Septier 6-0, 6-1

Re: Suzanne Lenglen Career Results

Just a note on the Nice Lawn Tennis Club Members' Championship. This was open to both French and overseas players as long as they were members of the club in question. And I don't doubt that some of the top overseas were members of this club.

Hi, Andrew,

I got those results from an edition of "The Field" from late January or early February 1924. As you might know, Wallis Myers was lawn tennis correspondent for "The Field" from about 1909 until his death, and spent a lot of time on the Riviera, even partnering Suzanne Lenglen once or twice in mixed doubles, so I'd say the results in question are reliable.
