    Venue is the centre court of the Stade Francais at Saint-Cloud, so the tournament is the World Hardcourt Championships. Suzanne Lenglen is in the mixed doubles match, but don't recognise her partner. The woman in the front row of the stands smoking and removing her coat is Molla Mallory. The footage at the end of the women's player is also Mallory.
