Draw note: F.M. B. (Francis) Fischer was a noted promotor of Riviera events. He preferred to be known as FMB.
Suzanne was indisposed for the mixed final. She had a nervous breakdown after two strenuous semis and had to be escorted back to the hotel by doctors, who declare she may be unfit to play for two months. Later that evening Suzanne is transported to Nice in an ambulance. This happens the same week that it is announced that Helen Wills is sailing for the Riviera. The press storm over a possible Lenglen-Wills meeting dominates the first two months of 1926, making world headlines.
