Draw notes:

Holder Katie Fenwick does not defend her title.

In 1908, Max Decugis had won the mixed doubles event at the Closed French Championships with Katie Fenwick.



In 1909, the Closed French Championships as a whole were held outside Paris for the first and only time, the venue being the Société Athlétique de la Villa Primrose Club in the port city of Bordeaux, on the south-west coast of France.

It was in Bordeaux that Jeanne Matthey won the women's singles title at the Closed French Championships for the first time. In the final she beat Mme Abeille Gallay, 10-8, 6-4.

Jeanne Matthey had a lawn tennis-playing sister called Cécile, but Jeanne was by far the better player of the two.
