Need help with 1950 French draw

A new project for this year has been to clean up the slams. With all the information in the name threads we can finally make a dent with many names!

So far I have done the 1946 to 1950 French.

All was going well until I hit the 1950 event. I am missing the first round and second round of the mixed doubles,plus one doubles result.

Does anyone have access to the London Times or French newspapers? both of these might have the missing results.

Thanks in advance!

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

Summary
:

Pat Todd returns two years after the 1948 storm which saw her defaulted to Nelly Adamson-Landry. Toddy is even paired with Nelly in doubles, though one wonders if this was a true reconciliation or forced by the US and French Federations.

With all the world's top ten the steller field progresses to the QF with no major upsets, though Brough struggled to get past Rita Anderson and Bossi, the only non-American to make the quarters, prevailed over Head in a long 3 setter in the 3rd round. Only #8 seed Joan Curry fell, as Scofield outsteadied the Brit at her own game.

"The sensation of the quarterfinals was the defeat of the holder, Mrs du Pont by Miss Scofield. It was a victory for the baseliner over the vollyer on a baseliner's court." (Dunlop p 213). When asked why she lost Margaret replied. "Oh, I just made a couple of bad shots." Dupont's errors came at the net while Scofield drove hard shots to the corners.

Barbara couldn't repeat the upset in the semis vs a battle hardened Todd, a baseliner herself and previous winner at the French. Meanwhile Hart took apart Brough, a serve and volleyer unable to cope with Hart's clay court tactics. Louise missed a smash to go down the crucial break 2-4 and then served a double fault to lose the first set 6-3.

Todd put a titanic fight in the final despite blistered feet,playing with 3 pair of socks. "She ran til the end against the most complete player in the game today." After the end she went to the hospital for treatment, still having two finals the next day.

Fry and Hart had survived a match point in the ladies doubles final on the final day. Totally down and out at 1-6 2-5 and love-30, they staged a brilliant comeback. The match point came at 5-3 40-30 on Brough's serve. The excitement of the match and her victory made up for Pat having to default the mixed final due to her feet. By this point the soles of her feet were just about worn off.

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

Draw notes
:

The Roland Garros site lists Rita Anderson as the #7, an obvious error as she is in the wrong place in the draw. anne-Marie Seghers is in the correct position to be the #7 seed based on other seedings in the draw.

The 7 defaults in singles probably are due to the notoriously lax French officials.

Dubois=married name of Brunerius

Missing full names for:

Mme Michel Bernard
Gurdel-Belliard
Mme S Noyon

Missing male names:

Missing scores:

Missing entire first and second rounds in the mixed event. The 3R scores we have come from the New York Times.

Re: Need help with 1950 French draw

"Le Monde" doesn't seem to be of much help, and I don't have access to "The Times" from that far back. Have you tried asking the Fédération Française de Tennis?

Re: Need help with 1950 French draw

Thanks for checking Ms A!

I might well ask the French Federation, but when I was last at the Wimbledon library some years ago a representative from Roland Garros was digging around.

Want to know what he was looking for? Results for the French! In England-LOL. That's how laissez faire they were back in the day.

On the other hand I hear good things about their library, so I may give your idea a shot.

Thanks again

Re: Need help with 1950 French draw

Hello Rollo and all.

I have had a look at London Times and only a couple more mixed can be found. See below. I did get a whole lot of results from the FFT many years ago (before they put them on their web site) and I remember that they did not have all the mixed results for 1950. This may have changed though so you might as well ask. Andrew
