By the time Roland Garros arrives Mme Lafaurie, nee Jung, will become Mme Henrotin, the name under which she is best known.
There is mistery on this tournament, and unfortunately Le Figaro doesn't write the final of women's singles.
In our "1929 thread" there is this result:
291223 291223 Cannes Beausite I
FI: Elizabeth Ryan (US) d Lucia Valerio (Ity) 6-3 1-6 6-3
while here there is a different final. I can only confirm the dates (December 23-29 1929, and therefore it's need to move it in 1929 thread)
There is a difference in doubles too (Le Figaro has a different runner-up):
DF: Elizabeth Ryan (US)/Phyllis Satterthwatie (GB) d. Sylvia Lafaurie/Miss Petchell 6-3 6-5 ret.
