However, the practice of using pseudonyms was, fortunately, dying out by the beginning of the 1920s. This makes it easier for people who are interested in tennis history to dig up information on past players.

maybe i can get some additional information about this.
in the meantime i have the Berlin winners from 1929, which are
Cochet-Menzel 9:11 6:3 6:1 6:1, and in the ladies singles Reznicek-Aussem 7:5 6:3
the finals were played on the 20th May, 1929

can you tell me something about european tournaments of that era?
were they always played in a particular sequence? i assume that Berlin ws played before the French, for example?
