Description

For many, she's just a name attributed to one of Roland Garros' great courts. But Suzanne Lenglen, unbeaten between 1919 and 1926, was above all the first person to turn tennis into a real profession. Rubbing shoulders with the greats, living her love affairs with the same passion that drove her on the courts, she revolutionized her world. This champion, trained like a man, played her part in many of the changes that liberated women from the bourgeois conventions of another century.
The story of Suzanne Lenglen's intense life, spanning just thirty-nine years, is a surprising and moving account of the many influences she still exerts today.
