Marie Decugis (7 August 1884 – 4 May 1969; née Flameng; also Décugis) was a French tennis player.

Life[edit]

Marie was born in 1884 the daughter of painter François Flameng (1856–1923) and his wife Marguerite Henriette Augusta (née Turquet; 1863–?). She married the successful tennis player Max Decugis on May 15, 1905, at Paris. The couple had a daughter, Christiane Omer-Decugis (1909–1974).[1]

Decugis won the title in mixed doubles, along with her husband, at the 1906 Intercalated Games at Athens. She played at the Wimbledon Championships in 1912 and 1920, but lost her initial match on both occasions.

She died at an age of 84 at Grasse.[1]
