Suzanne Lenglen (1899-1938) was a French tennis player, who dominated the world of women’s tennis from 1914 to 1926. During this time she won 31 Championship titles, and became the first female international sports star.
She won the World Hard Court Championship at the age of 15, making her the youngest winner of a major championship in tennis history, a record that still stands. She was No. 1 from 1921, when the rankings began, to 1926, and her record of 98% wins means that she is regarded as the best female player of all times.
