Draw Notes:

Are we 100% sure about Jean Bostock? She cannot be the same Jean Bostock who was a star in the 1940s as the ages don't match. Thus, while Newmark has Jean Bostock I think the jury is still out.


----------------------------------------------------------------

Summary:

Lenglen caused a stir by fainting. She won her singles first, though both she and Mckane performed below par, the English star often made errors off the backhand and Suzanne made a high number of errors herself. She collapsed after the singles, but went on to win the mixed. By the time she went on court for her last final (the ladies doubles) Lenglen "seemed resigned to defeat from the start."

As Beamish's last shot flew by her Suzanne declared "I simply can't do it." She later declared it was "a silly stunt" to attempt 3 finals in one day, and vowed never to repeat it.

Draw courtesy of Newmark.
