Summary:

In 1905, Kate Gillou defeated Yvonne de Pfeffel, 6-0, 11-9, in what appears to have been the last match of the women's singles event at the Closed French Championships. Kate was the defending champion. Yvonne de Pfeffel was one of two lawn tennis-playing sisters, the other being Marie-Louise de Pfeffel. Their father was German-born, hence the occurrence of "von Pfeffel" in some sources.

In the Mixed Doubles the holders Katie Gillou and Max Decugis probably did not defend their title. *
