Challenge Round
Blanche Amblard/Suzanne Amblard d. Golding/Lenglen 6-4 8-6
---------------------------
Notes: At the age of merely 14 the sensational Suzanne Lenglen almost wins her nations title. She gives Broquedis a strern test in the final. Amazingly this will be Suzanne's last defeat until 1921, when she defaults in the US Nationals. In the doubles final the twin Amblard sisters retain their title.

Final
Lenglen/Ryan d. B. Amblard/S. Amblard 6-0 6-0

--------------------
Lenglen wins the world's second most important championship at the age of 15. "She was given a hard fight by Suzanne Amblard in the semifinal but her superior steadyness and volleying ability tipped the balance." In the final Golding tried to win with her lethal forehand 'but she usually faltered after" 3 or 4 shots.
It was hoped the prodigy would enter Wimbledon. Her father decided against it due to her age and lack of grass court play, for she had never entered a grass event. Within weeks World War One(the "Great War" at that time) had started. Suzanne would have to wait until 1919 to claim world supremacy.

Though the war was over France was still too devastated to hold a national title or the World's Hard Court. Events were held on the riviera, where Lenglen reamined unbeaten.

Final

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

A packed crowd of 4,000 watch as Molla clocks the ball in an all out effort to beat Lenglen. It is closer than the 6-2 6-3 score suggests, and only Molla's errors and Suzanne's solid defense
keep the Norsewoman from getting more games. Lenglen almost considered defaulting due to blistered feet, but was dramatically ordered to remain on court by her father. Interset was so intense that seats were going for hundreds of francs and 5,000 fans had to be turned away from the gates.

Lenglen spoke after the quarterfinals-declaring she would be sad if Molla lost before the finals because then she could not defeat the American love and love. The reamrks did not endear her to Molla, and the two did not speak when they passed each other. After her defeat in the finals Mallory shouted at her friend Bill Tilden, "Wait til I get her on grass!".

Final
Lenglen/Ryan d. Beamish/Mckane 6-0 6-4
------------------------------------------------------------
Lenglen is tested in the semis, where Kitty McKane holds set points. "Watched by Queen Elizabeth of the Belgians, the drama occured in the first set, when McKane recoverd from 0-3 to hold two set points on her service at 5-4 40-15. "In the second set Kitty played into Suzanne's hands by coming to the net too much."
Up to that point Lenglen had been so dominant that she dropped not a single game until the semis.


Missing is Suzanne's great rival Molla Mallory, who sailed for England to compete at Wimbledon the very day of the Lenglen-McKane match.

Ryan survived a match point in her third round match vs. the formidable Peacock of India. Peacock "reveled in the heat" but netted the ball time after time in the third, defeating herself.

A funny incident happened in round 2, when it was reported that "a new star" had come to challenge Lenglen. Even her name was perfect for tennis. Princess Lobkowiczova beat Satterwaithe (a top tenner) 6-0 6-0 with "a peculiar twisting serve". It was obvious the reporter had never seen the match the next day when a furious Satterwaithe stormed the tournament office to inform them that she had won 6-0 6-0, not the Princess! The official had given the referee the correct score but the wrong winner.

Semis
Goldong/Lenglen d. Bancroft/Goss 6-3 6-1

Final
Beamish/Mckane d. Golding/Lenglen 6-2 6-3

------------------
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 and Papa suggested she might boycott
Paris in the future.
