Re: Simone (Simonne) Mathieu-French star of the 1930s

Those are gorgeous photos Wolbo Thank you for posting them

Such details, from the grain in the sand, to Mathieu's interesting looking shoes with the lace in the middle of shoe.

And Simone looks so young next to Suzanne, who by contrast had almost visibly aged from all the stress of the famous match with Helen Wills weeks earlier.

I wish there some photos of Simonne with her children.

Given their age the quality of many of the Gallica photos is really excellent. The Gallica collection is a great asset to tennis history aficionados.

These three photos look to be from the same series as the ones on page 1.

From the quarterfinal match against Lenglen. This did not end well for Mme Mathieu...

Rolland Garros video on account of the new court named after her. The court looks great!

Who was Simonne Mathieu?

It also finally settles the issue of the spelling of her name.
