The 1927 French Championships final between Lacoste and Tilden was a controversial match too. Tilden seemingly hit an ace when championship point up, but it was called out and Tilden ended up losing the match. 1927 was the year when Tilden started travelling to Europe again, realising how serious a threat the Musketeers were following the 1926 US Championships, where Cochet beat Tilden in the quarter finals and Lacoste won the tournament after beating Borotra in the final.

It got even more frustrating for Tilden at 1927 Wimbledon, where he blew a 2 set and 5-1 in the third set lead against Cochet, and eventually lost.
