Suzanne Lenglen - Tennis Idol of the Twenties



POSTAL WEIGHT 0.575 kilograms

Enigmatic Frenchwoman SUZANNE LENGLEN was the first superstar in women's sport. Her golden period was immediately after World War I, and from 1919 to 1926 she was never beaten in a completed singles match. Her 1926 encounter with eight-times Wimbledon Champion HELEN WILLS at the Carlton Club in Cannes entered tennis history as one of the most significant matches of all time. Published by the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, Alan Little's fascinating book gives a year-by-year account of Suzanne's amazing career.
