Here are the winners of the women's singles event at the South of France Championships, held on clay courts in Nice, from 1899-1914 and from 1919-39:
South of France Championships, Nice
Nice was a complicated venue, because besides "South of France Champs." there were at least other two tournaments: "Nice Lawn Tennis Club Champs." and "Tournoi International de la ville de Nice".
I put in a file with a honour roll of "Tournoi International de la ville de Nice" , taken from an official programme.
It's need check with the years of thread "Women's Tennis Results", because some years have the same winners of "South of France Champs."
