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.
