    One of the players in the footage of the women's singles match is Suzanne Lenglen, but the camera is too far away to be able to identify her opponent. The women's player hitting the ball is Helen Wills which suggests that the footage is from 1924 rather than 1925 as Wills didn't take part in the 1925 tournament.
