Info This year on the Cote d' Azur proved to be unseasonably cold, windy, and rainy. Ladies were wrapped in furs and blankets before coming onto court, and spectators huddled together for warmth. Balls were late in arriving from London, so balls were borrowed from local clubs. The very fact that British balls were normally used for an event in France speaks volumes about English domination of this era.
