Suzanne Lenglen Career Results

Intro

Suzanne Rachel Flore Lenglen was in Paris on 24 May, 1899. Her father Charles came from a well to do family. He married Rachel, the sister of his good friend Louis Hainault. Soon after Rachel died in 1896 he married Anaise, the youngest Hainualt sister. The couple had a son in 1901, but the sickly Philippe died in 1904, leaving Suzanne an only child.

Several factors propelled Suzanne forward in her tennis. As an only child she received all of her parents attention. The Lenglen family was from the north, yet wintered in the south of France. Naturally athletic, Suzanne excelled at swimming, cycling, and a game called diabolo. At the age of 11 her father gave her a tennis racquet. Within months he was convinced she had the ability to conquer the tennis world. Charles sold the family business and became determined to make Suzanne a champion. The strong bond they formed reamined unbroken until his death.

Throughout 1910 and 1911 Suzanne entered mainly handicap events, which were fashionable at the time. Her first non-handicap event was at Compiegne, near her summer home. In 1913 she won 3 events in the north of France, wins that garnered her national attention. Throughout this period Lenglen took ballet lessons to improve her footwork.

----------------------------------------------------

May 29-June 9 World Hard Court Championships, Paris, France (Clay)

QF: d Suzanne Amblard/M Germot 6-4 6-1
SF: d Phyllis Satterwaite/Arthur Wallis Myers 6-1 6-4
FI: lost to Elizabeth Ryan/Max Decugis 3-6 1-6

Suzanne shocks the tennis world by taking the 2nd most prestigous event of the year. Only Wimbledon ranks ahead of the WHC. Lenglen barely prevails in the semis due to her volleying and steadiness. Golding tries to use her big forehand in the final but usually makes an error after 3 or 4 shots.

----------------------------------------------------

Papa Lenglen considered entering his daughter at Wimbledon but takes a pass. She will not grace the All-England Club until 1919.

----------------------------------------------------

July 18-25 Compiegne Tournament, Compiegne, France (Clay)

1R: bye
QF: d P Nativelle 6-0 6-0

Mixed Doubles with Georges Gault

1R: bye
QF: d Mme Requillard 6-0 6-4
SF: L Marcot/Thivel 6-0 6-4
FI: d Suzanne Ambard/Lamy 6-1 8-10 6-0

Etretat, starting on August 9, was next on Suzanne's schedule. The guns of August would intervene though, as Germans crossed the border. Thus began the silence on the tennis scene in Europe as "The Great War descends" over the continent. Areas such as Amiens and Compiegne in the north of France, Suzanne's home district, will be the witness to savage fighting and destruction.

1915-1918-World War One

There are no organized events on most of the Continent as the curtain of war drops down on the tennis stage. Suzanne has a distinct advantage in being able to continue practicing in peace on the Riviera during the conflict.

April 26-30 Cannes War Charity Tournament, Cannes, France (Clay)
Venue: Beau Site Hotel

Mixed Doubles with B Marion Crawford

FI: d Mme SA Puget/GM Simond 1-1 retired

The event aided the South african Ambulance Hospital in Cannes. Simond hurt his ankle and had to retire in the final.

Lenglen withdrew due to a blistered hand. Little's results indicate this was in the semifinals; yet his book notes it was in "the semifinal stage" (p 21). Which is correct?

SF: d J Sanders/G Jung 6-1 6-1
FI: lost to Elizabeth Ryan/Major Ritchie 1-6 3-4 retired

Suzanne beats an off-form Ryan in only 20 minutes and retires in the mixed final after arguing with her partner, angering the crowd.

From "Ayres' Almanack" (1921) "A stiff breeze blew down the court and lowered play all round. Here the greater experience of Ritchie and his partner proved of tremendous value; they made the wind their servant instead of their master. The French pair, on the other hand, were obviously distressed, and the slower pace of the game, with deflected lobs as its feature, caused mistakes and misunderstandings. The first set was brief and one-sided, Miss Ryan showing sustained accuracy and skill, and Ritchie returning every ball with great shrewdness in the wind. At the beginning of the second set Mlle Lenglen did many fine things off her own racket, sometimes fighting two volleyers single-handed and scoring between them; but she could not maintain this effort, and after a long seventh game had gone against her side she retired from the match. Robbed of complete victory by this incident Ritchie and Miss Ryan had nevertheless shown on the day a conclusive superiority, and they were clearly entitled to win the event."

As defending champion in the singles Suzanne only had to play 1 match. After the classic match of 1919 a rematch with Dorothea Lambert Chambers was eagerly anticipated. Suzanne quickly dispatched Dorothea. Chambers drew up to 2 all after dropping the opening games, but won only 1 more game the rest of the way as Lenglen relentlessly ran her about the court.

After the Thursday singles final on July 1 the Frenchwoman won the doubles and mixed crowns on Saturday, July 3. In doing so she becomes the first female to win a "triple" at Wimbledon.

Suzanne's fashionable attire and style garnered as much press as her tennis. In place of a hat she wore a bandeau over boobed hair. This style was copied worldwide by women throughout the 1920s as women across the globe.

The facilities were awful. Noise from other events constantly flowed over an audience and players used to quiet during points. The dressing rooms had no hot water, soap, or spaces to dry clothes. Nonetheless Suzanne ran through the field. Holamn's 3 games in a final delayed a day due to rain looked heroic considering Suzanne had beaten 4 opponents and dropped only 1 game! The King of Belgium watched her triumph.

The doubles was another story. The British pair of Mckane/McNair directed their volleys at the weaker D'Ayen, eking out a 3 set win that was the highlight of the ladies event.

Suzanee looked to be ill at the start of her match with Wolfson. "Leading 30-love in the second game , Suzanne showed signs of physical distress and lost the next four points but unaccountably recovered to win the next 11 games." (Little, p 44). There were reports that Suzanne was engaged to her mixed partner Roger Danet. She was seen sporting a ring on her finger. By year's end it was off.

Triple champion-winning 17 matches without dropping a set. Suzanne accedes to the wishes of the committee to abolish the challenge round and "play through". This change in format celebrates Wimbledon's move from Worple Road, where it is to this day. In many ways the new Centre court is "The house that Suzanne built".

There is no seeding in 1922 at the All-England, and as a result Suzanne has to face McKane early. The expectation that a British girl might challenge Lenglen overflows centre court, hundreds being turned away. Brilliant volleying and the crowd "willing her on" make for a close second set, but the Goddess barely closes it out. Lenglen appears to be fading again when Ryan forces her to 8-6 in the quarters.

All her distress signs gave hope to fans of "Fighting Molla" Mallory. People line up at dawn on finals day for what is hoped to be the cat fight of the year. Centre court must wait until 7 pm however;as rain delays the finals. With the title of World Champion on the line, Molla comes out swinging. When Suzanne starts to cough a slight smile crosses Molla's face-within minutes it is wiped off as the Frenchwoman steamrolls her 6-2 6-0, taking the last 9 games.

From the New York Times, using the Associated Press:

During this event Molla Mallory grabs headlines by landing in Paris on March 17 and heading straight for chic dres shops. Molla declares she is merely here on vacation with her husband. Nontheless she is entered in several Riviera events. Molla stated , "I am not coming here with a chip on my shoulder,looking for trouble. I like to play tennis to while away the time on the long sunny afternoons on the Riviera. I am challenging no one and expect to receive no challenges, but will play all comers."

The arrival of Molla Mallory has caused a beehive of activity on the Riviera. Few believe Molla's repeated pronouncements that she is here merely for a vacation. Fans are disspointed when Suzanne Lenglen withdraws from the singles-fueling speculation that she fears Mallory despite convincingly beating her last year at Wimbledon. Many speculate that Suzanne opts out of the singles to evaluate how Kitty Mckane and Molla Mallory are on clay, a tactic she will repeat in 1926 when Helen Wills invades the Riviera.

In contrast Molla draws compliments for appearing for her first round match in spite of just arriving from the States after an exhaustinf sea voyage. She remarks after a tough struggle that, "I am at a loss to understand why people at home take such an interest in these matches here. ... I do not attach to these games one fifth the importance that I would to Wimbledon or the American championships. If I did I certainly would have prepared for them, and would not have entered in my present playing form."

In an interview the next day after her withdrawal Lenglen responds to a question about being "afraid" of Mallory by terminating the interview, heatedly replying, "I am not afraid of any woman tennis player in the world." Officials were reported to be upset with the French diva, as new stands were erected and sold out in anticipation of a Lenglen-Mallory clash. When La Lenglen gets a cold reception from spectators at the start of her first doubles match she declares she was never entered in the event, protresting that the tournament director M. Simon only announced her entry to boost ticket sales. "Gate receipts first, and let the spectators dissapointment spend itself on Suzanne." She is only entered in the doubles so her partner Liz Ryan "would not lose." Lenglen's father declares he will lodge a demand for an investigation to clear his daughter. Luckily for Suzanne her devoted fans cannot stay angry at her for long; she got an ovation from the crowd at the end of her first match. By the end of the week the club issues a statement: "The committee of La Festa Club of Monte Calro declares it never announced that Mlle Lenglen would play in the singles of the tournament beginning Saturday, Feb 24, knowing that she was ailing and was coming to Monte Carlo only through courtesy."

Meanwhile Molla gets better, though she declares that she hears it takes 3 weeks to get used to the clay courts, noting she hasn't played "on dirt" since the World Hard Court event in 1921. Molla has been seen practicing 4 or 5 hours daily with Phyllis Satterwaite. The steady Satterwaite has won all of their practice sets.

A couple of days later Molla crashes out in both sinhles and doubles. Her famed forehand lacks its usual punch, and in both singles and doubles she repeatedly errs off her backhand. The largest crowd in Monte Carlo history comes to see the doubles match QF vs Lenglen.

Doubles final only the second time Lenglen/Ryan ever lost a set a a pair-the other, the 1919 Wimbledon final, also featured Mrs Chambers with Ethel Larcombe. Ryan was the weak link-with pundits decalring that she looked overtennised. Suzanne and Elizabeth recover from 3-4 in the third to preserve their perfect record.

The whole event is sold out in anticipation of a Lenglen-Mallory that fails to materialize. Be it poor form or a weak ankle Molla is upset in her first match here as some 2-3,000 look on in shock. The previous week as some cynics asserted that Lenglen withdrew out of fear of facing Mallory. Now it is Molla's turn, with some whispering she tanked on purpose to avoid a crushing defeat by Suzanne. Apparently unperturbed, Molla announces she will play on. Her only negative comment was about the officiating, with 3 or 4 close calls going against her.

The final score of 6-2 7-5 would normally indicate a close and exciting final, as few are able to even stretch Lenglen in singles. Instead play was lackluster, neither woman coming to net all all. Even the baseline play was devoid of interest as Kitty and Suzanne each waited for the other to make an error. The wet courts may have been a factor, dampening both the bounce of the ball and the spirit. Suzanne was lucky as a net cord helped her win the 9th game.

Afterwards Kitty said, "I suppose I shall be thirty before I can win a set from her." Suzanne had her own challenges, being upset with fans who "even applaud when I make a double fault."

Molla and Lenglen met at last in singles.

The day before their match:
Suzanne Lenglen: "I will beat her tomorrow, never fear."
Molla Malory: "Well, we get a crack at the champion tomorrow"

Betting odds were at 5 to 1 in favor of Lenglen, with even money that Molla would not get 5 games.

* From "Ayres' Almanack" (1924): "The meeting of Mlle Lenglen and Mrs Mallory in the semi-final attracted considerable interest, although, in view of the relative form shown by the two players on the Riviera, little doubt was entertained about the result.

"At this, the fourth of their engagements, the champion had the satisfaction of winning two love sets, scoring 50 points to the 18 of Mrs Mallory. The tie lasted twenty-five minutes, and if it be said that the American champion hit with more confidence and with better length than in any of her previous singles matches in the South of France, the conclusive character of Mlle Lenglen's victory can be gauged. She did not overwhelm Mrs Mallory, nor can it be denied that many chances of scoring were unaccepted by the American champion because of faulty timing; nevertheless, the French girl demonstrated that her equipment of strokes is much superior to that of Mrs Mallory, while her strategic sense, trained by a wider experience, is more highly developed.

"Mrs Mallory's service was so innocuous that the champion could take the defensive in her drive each time. She only came to the net once, it being evident that good length and accurate placing from the back of the court were sufficient to win virtually all the rallies. Naturally she directed her strokes to Mrs Mallory's weaker backhand, and though the strain on this wing was borne with more security than previous matches had suggested, a wide fast return was usually successful."

Lenglen's win is so decisive that only 2 games went to deuce. Molla never even had a game point. She only won 8 points in the first set and 11 in the second. suzanne scored 7 winners to 2 for Molla. Molla made 19 errors in the net and 26 out to only 7 net errors and 10 out for Suzanne.

The scorecard was framed and put on display at the Nice Club, where it may still be seen to this day.

Overlooked in all of the ballyhoo was the coming out of young Lili de Alvarez of Spain, who was unlucky to draw veteran Elizabeth Ryan early in the event.

Lenglen's loss in the semis of the mixed doubles was her first in any match since she retired to Molla Mallory in the second round of the 1921 US Championships. She is gracious in defeat, throwing her arms around Ryan and declaring, "You played magnificently. One must lose sometime, and I prefer losing to you rather than anyone in the world."

Suzanne wins her 3rd consecutive World Hard Court title before 6,000.

Lenglen caused a stir by fainting. She won her singles first, though both she and Mckane performed below par, the English star often made errors off the backhand and Suzanne made a high number of errors herself. She collapsed after the singles, but went on to win the mixed. By the time she went on court for her last final (the ladies doubles) Lenglen "seemed resigned to defeat from the start."

As Beamish's last shot flew by her Suzanne declared "I simply can't do it." She later declared it was "a silly stunt" to attempt 3 finals in one day, and vowed never to repeat it.

Lenglen is in tears at the end of her final because the crowd was clapping for her Golding more than her after a disputed line-call. Golding actually had the spectators in shock because she had an unheard of 4-0 lead in set two! The diva was so distraught she asked her father if she should continue. He told her to play on. Lenglen recovered to win six games runnign and the match. Afterwards Papa suggested she might boycott Paris in the future.

Lenglen had pulled out of the French Nationals, spiking rumors she might skip Wimbledon. The organizers worry she might not come, for her matches bring in so many fans that only centre court or Court One will do for La Diva.

Lenglen glides through until the second set of her QF with doubles partner Liz Ryan. Elizabeth holds on, smashing her way out of difficulty at 5-5 and closing out the set at 8-6. "The crowd erupted." It is Lenglen's first set dropped since 1921. Ryan stays on the attack in the third, driving games to 3-4 before Lenglen wins it on what many considered a bad call. Many cheers follow the two as they leave the court.

Two days later she officially withdrew on doctor's advice-missing the chance to play Helen Wills for the first time. She also withdrew from the Olympic Games in Paris.


Suzanne does not enter another event for all of 1924.

1925


After being out most of 1924 due to jaundice Suzanne is out to reassert her tennis supremacy.

Suzanne has outside activities in 1925 that also gain attention. She made a gramaphone record on how to play tennis and her book, Tennis: Game of Nations, is published. She even authors a romantic novel, titles, "The Love Game".

Summary
Entered 19 tournaments in total.

Singles
Won 8 of 8 events entered.
37-0 match record.

Doubles
Won of 14 of 17 events entered. Defaults in 2 events and 1 event unfinished. 9 titles with Ryan.
57-0 match record


Mixed
Won 12 of 14 events entered.
55-2 match record with 1 retirement.

*Note I have not included the Nice event of January 12-18 as it was a club event limited to members only. Matches vs Australian team at Deuville are included, but exhibition matches are not.

Ryan withdraws from the singles-prompting many to speculate she is doing Lenglen a favor. Many fans boycott Nice in protest. Diddie wins the first two games in the semi before fading. Harvey runs a fever and pulls out of the final.

FI d. Elizabeth Ryan/Umberto de Morpurgo 6-3 6-3


Her run of losing only 5 games in 5 matches stands today as the most lopsided title run in Wimbledon history. Cente Court is prepared for drama as Elizabeth Ryan goes on court in round two, as Ryan's titanic effort in 1924 forced Lenglen out of the champiobships. Will there be a repeat? Suzanne lets the air out of any excitement when, after trailing 0-2, she wins the next 12 games for the match. This is last match in their head to head, which stood with Lenglen winning 17 of 18 matches. This will also be their last time playing doubles together, though neither one realized it at the time.

The match vs. Beamish is a total route-Lenglen dropped only 14 points in all, 4 in set two.

Kitty McKane went on an all-out attack in the semis. As she was te defending champ Suzanne had a point to prove-she, and she alone, was the goddess. Despite playing well Kitty garnered 27 points, but not one game!

Wimbledon's jubilee year sees past champions presented with medals on opening day. She gets a loud cheer as she bows before the Queen to receive her silver medal. The cheers turn to jeers days later when a scheduling conflict leads the British public to believe that Suzanne has snubbed the Queen, who waited for a Lenglen that did not appear on Centre Court. The stress gets to Lenglen and she withdraws from all events. Wimbledon is her last event as an amateur. She had planned to enter the Midland Chmps in Edgbaston and the Irish Chmps, but promply withdrew from these events.

Pro Career

In mid 1926 Suzanne signed a professional contract with Charles ("Cash and Carry") Pyle for 50,000 US dollars, plus a percentage of any profits. She thus became the first big time female pro.

She arrived in New York with 10 trunks and 12 racquets.
Her foil was the US star Mary K. Browne, a full 8 years older than Suzanne and past her prime. Mary was said to have signed for the sum of $30,000.

She was formally expelled by the French Federation after her first pro match. After New York crowds ranged anywhere from 500 to 10,000.

American Pro Tour Summary:

There were 40 separate dates in all. Most featured Suzanne in a singles and mixed match, though at times the singles was omitted, and on a couple of occassions Suzanne and a male partner faced two males.

Singles: 34 matches won-2 lost (.944%)

Lenglen's only losses were in Portland (she retired after winning the first set) and Hartford. She also dropped a set in Tampa.Suzanne never lost a fully contested 2 out of 3 set match on the tour in singles.

Mixed: 25 matches won -8 lost and 1 match unfinished (in Witchita) (.757%)

The tour wasn't a raging success, but Pyle reportedly did make $80,000, while Lenglen earned an extra $25,000 in addition to her guarentee, while Browne netted $25,000.

Suzanne left for France on Feb 19, 1927

-----

An English tour vs. Evelyn Dewhurst and German Dora Koring.

Dewhurst later remarked of Suzanne that, "She was as ugly as a totem pole. but one forgot this in the presence of her magnetic personality."

July 2 at Henley on Thames d. Koring 6-1 6-2
July 5 at London (3,500) d. Koring 6-3 6-0
July 6 ''''' d. Dewhurst 6-2 6-2
July 8 """" d. Dewhurst 6-1 6-0
July 12 at Glasgow(8,000) d. Dewhurst 6-2 6-0
July 15 Blackpool (7,000) d. Dewhurst 6-1 6-4
July 16 Manchester (15,000) d. Dewhurst 6-2 6-0

The last 3 matches were outdoors in football stadiums, a green wood court laid out over the grass.

There were rumours over the years that she was planning to appeal to the Federation so her amatuer status could be restored, but she denied all the conjecture as Helen Wills set about racking up championships. Perhaps to slow down 'Queen Helen' Suzanne personally showed Helen Jacobs how to beat her great rival with a combination of of long and short alternating balls.
