Jacques Brunion

The fourth of the musketeers, the oldest of them, has always been the main support for his comrades. Modest, restrained, he in a single game could not reveal all that he was capable of. And this is a pity, because his varied and attractive game posed serious problems for an opponent of the highest class. Lacoste, for example, felt very uncomfortable, encountering the always unexpected blows of Bryunion, and Tilden had to give all his best to achieve victory.

Suzanne Langlen – the pride of France

Susanne Lenglen (05/24/1899 – 07/04/1938) – an outstanding French tennis player, who left a bright mark in the history of sea tennis. She was a two-time Olympic champion in 1920, became the 35 times winner of the Grand Slam tournaments, 12 of them in singles.
