Venue: Ile de Puteaux, Paris



Countess Thérèse Villard de Kermel d. Catherine d'Aliney d' Elva 6-1 retired



Won by Adine Masson/Yvonne de Pfeffel


Mixed Doubles

Won by Antoinette Péan/Robert Wallet



The winner was the Countess de Kermel, born Thérèse Villard on 15 June 1874. She married Count Olivier de Kermel in Paris, France, on 30 September 1899. ("Le Figaro" had announced their engagement a few months earlier.) In the final match at the Closed French Championships in 1907, the countess won the first set, 6-1, against a Mlle d'Elva before the latter retired. It appears that Katie Fenwick was not defending her singles title in 1907.

Mlle d'Elva, the runner-up, is one of the most obscure players to have taken part in the Closed French Championships. She did not play much competitive lawn tennis at all.

This was the first year there was a ladies doubles event.
