Has anyone managed to find the past tournament draws on the new French Open website? These used to be available at rolandgarros.com/en_FR/about/history/pasttournaments.html but all I can find on the new and seriously crappy website is a list of winners.
I also think they are still on the website... just not very accessible. For instance you can find the 1930 mens at http://ww2.fft.fr/rolandgarros/pdfpalmares/hommes1930_fra.pdf. Just change the year to get to what you need.

the 1930 ladies are at:
http://ww2.fft.fr/rolandgarros/pdfpalmares/femmes1930_fra.pdf

another poor way to get to the draws.
Go to the 2012 version of the page at http://ww2.fft.fr/rolandgarros/default_en.asp?id=1575
At the past draws bottom you'll find pulldown boxes for past draws.... these won't work! That's because the new window that pops up that should have the info needs to link to ww2 instead of www. Change the www to ww2 and it loads fine. I hope that helps... the new site kinda sucks, I agree.

1910 closed French Championship. All the major sources like ESPN and Le Figaro seem to show that Jeanne Matthey d. Marguerite Broquedis in the final instead of d. Germaine Regnier. Do we have a source to confirm that Jeanne Matthey d. Germaine Regnier (later Golding)?

1904

Venue: Racing Club de France, Paris

Singles

Final

Katie Gillou d. Adine Masson ????

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

Mixed Doubles

Won by Katie Gillou/Max Decugis

The years 1904-1908 are probably the most obscure in the history of the women's singles event at the Closed French Championships.
Obscure indeed! Surely though, there must be sources somewhere that can shed some light on the missing details. What to make of this article in the Armée et Marine – Armes et Sport of 21 July 1904? It describes an international tournament at the Ile de Puteaux (the same one discussed in this article posted by Rollo). The French Championships that year were held at the Racing Club de France. The interesting part of the article mentions, and praises, Katie Gillou. It says she won the Paris Championships after a 'difficult victory' against Prévost and then talks about her winning the Championnat de France (!) against Adine Masson in two sets. No scores unfortunately.

Hello RSimcox.:wavey:

I have gone over 1910 again and can find no sources for Marguerite Broquedis in the final. If you find Le Figaro please let me know. The source I cite indicates Regnier as the finalist.

Thank you
