Re: Germaine Golding Picture Thread

Spectacular images from from the Golden Age Djoule--

Merci Beaucoup!


Golding must have been a quality player, as evidenced by the time she led Lenglen 4-0.


The shoes intrigue me-they look almost like ballerina shoes with the ribbons around the ankles. The photos with Golding and Lenglen side by side provide the best view of footwear.

Re: Germaine Golding Picture Thread

Here is her French wiki page:

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germaine_Golding

Germaine was very close to winning the French title in 1910-losing a tight final to Jeanne Matthey 1-6 6-1 9-7

in 1914 she reached the final of the World Hard Court title-Suzanne Lenglen ran away with the final 6-2 6-1.

She caused a stir in 1922 when she led Lenglen 4-0 in the French National final. Suzanne recovered to sweep 12 consecutive games for the match.


She was also a semifinalist at the 1924 Olympics in Paris. She lost to Helen Wills in the semis and then Kitty McKane in the bronze medal match 5-7 6-3 6-0

Her career was a long one-from at least 1910 to 1933, the last year she competed at Roland Garros.

Re: Germaine Golding Picture Thread

This looks like the World Hard Court Championships. Circa 1914 is my best guess here, based on the fashions. Germaine reached the final that year.
Her 6-2 6-2 upset of Marguerite Broquedis was impressive.
