About

Together with Borotra, Brugnon and Lacoste, Henri Cochet formed "The Four Musketeers", four French players who dominated international tennis in the 1920s and early 1930s. Known as "Le Magicien", he had great success in the Grand Slam tournaments, winning the French Open 5 times, Wimbledon twice, and the U.S. Open once. He also won eight Grand Slam doubles championships. With his fellow musketeers, France played nine consecutive Davis Cup finals (1925-1933), winning the Cup 1927-1932. Although an official world ranking did not exist at the time, Cochet was ranked #1 in the world by the annual top 10 by British newspaper The Daily Telegraph. Cochet, who also won two Olympic silver medals, became a professional in 1933. Together with the other Musketeers, he was inducted in the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1976.
