Biography

Max Decugis was the winner of a record six Olympic medals (four gold, one silver, one bronze) for lawn tennis between 1900 and 1920. His victories included the mixed doubles in 1906 when he was partnered by his wife. Although the Olympic tournaments during that era attracted many of the world’s top players, Decugis’s greatest non-Olympic achievement was to win the Wimbledon doubles with his countryman André Gobert in 1911 when they defeated the previously unbeaten holders, Tony Wilding (NZL) and Major Josiah Ritchie (GBR). He was also an eight-time French singles champion (1903-04, 1907-09, and 1912-14), although the event was then closed to French players only.
