Although still comparatively obscure, Paul Aymé was one of the most successful of the early French lawn tennis players. He notably won the men’s singles event at what is now known as early French National Championships four times a row, from 1897 to 1900.
Paul Aymé was a member of the Tennis Club de Paris, founded in the French capital in 1895, and won the club championship in men’s singles in 1897, 1898 and 1899. In 1904, he was also notably a member of the first ever French lawn tennis team to take part in the Davis Cup competition. Aymé lost both of his singles but, together with Max Decugis, won the doubles as France lost 2-3 to Belgium in the All-Comers’ Final.
