Tennis 1927

The four Musketeers !

   Having lost the two previous Davis Cup finals in 1925 and 1926, the French team finally won on the 10th September 1927 beating the Americans. The victory was even sweeter as it was held in Philadelphia. Jean Borotra, René Lacoste, Jacques Brugnon and Henri Cochet go down in history. The "four Musketeers", is their nickname referring to the Book by Alexandre Dumas "Les Trois Mousquetaires". It was chosen due to the aesthetics of the game of tennis evoking the swordplay and fighting spirit of the players.

This first Davis Cup victory was the start of a true « Golden Age » for French tennis. From 1927 to 1932, Henri Cochet, Jean Borotra, and Jacques Brugno win the Davis Cup 6 times, thus giving France its first 6 titles.

Initially the Cup was called the International Lawn Tennis Challenge and was played as its name suggests on grass courts. In 1928, The French title holders, won on clay courts for the first time.
