Katie Gillou d. Adine Masson ????


Mixed Doubles

Won by Katie Gillou/Max Decugis

The years 1904-1908 are probably the most obscure in the history of the women's singles event at the Closed French Championships. However, it is clear that Kate, or Katie, Gillou won the event in question every year during this period, except in 1907. "Le Figaro" mentions Kate Gillou several times during these years and includes a short report on her wedding to a René Fenwick in March 1906. Kate had a lawn tennis-playing sister called Antoinette, who was not quite as good as her. [If this is the mixed final it was held on June 19-the losing finalists being Yvonne de Pfoeffe/Andre Vacherot.
