About

As well as being a lawn tennis player himself, Pierre Gillou was captain of the French Davis Cup team during the golden era (1927-32, excluding 1930) of the “Quatre Mousquetaires”/“Four Musketeers”. The four players in question were Jean Borotra, Henri Lacoste, René Lacoste and Jacques Brugnon, and they were instrumental in France winning the Davis Cup in those six years. Pierre Gillou was also one of the founding members of the International Lawn Tennis Federation in 1913 and president of the French Tennis Federation for several years. From 1953 to 1978, the Coupe Pierre Gillou/Pierre Gillou Cup was awarded to the winner of the men’s singles championship at the International French Championships at Stade Roland Garros in Paris. This trophy is now called the Coupe des Mousquetaires/Musketeers’ Cup.
