Re: Jeanne Matthey

What a story!

The article states "After spending four years at the front, during which time she became a head nurse, Jeanne returned to Paris on suffering serious wounds to her right arm, which would prevent her from holding a racquet and playing tennis again."

She did compete at the French again in 1924, but was quickly beaten 6-1 6-0 in the round.
