Biography

Charles Wennergren played seven tennis events at the 1912 and 1924 Olympics, competing both in- and outdoors in 1912. He won no medals but reached the quarter-finals of men’s doubles both years. Wennergren won his first Swedish singles title in 1911 and eventually won that title six times, the last in 1926. He played one tie in Davis Cup for Sweden in 1928, losing his only match.
