SUZANNE THE DIVINE
Suzanne Lenglen was the greatest tennis player of all time and, alongside her exploits on the court, she also contributed to the emancipation of women.
She left an indelible mark on the history of tennis, winning 250 tournaments, including 83 without losing a game, as well as three Olympic medals and six Wimbledon titles. She lost just seven matches in her career.
In addition to her exceptional record, she is an icon of feminism. Not only did she revolutionize the way sportswomen of her time dressed, but she was also a talented writer.
