A. Germaine Golding (French pronunciation: ​[ʒɛʁmɛn gɔldiŋ]; née Regnier; born 1887)[1] was a French tennis player.

Career[edit]

Golding reached the final of the 1914 World Hard Court Championships which she lost to 15-year-old Suzanne Lenglen. After World War I, she was finalist at the French national championships three times in a row from 1921, but lost to Lenglen each time. Her greatest triumph were her three titles in singles, doubles and mixed at the 1922 World Covered Court Championship at St. Moritz.

At the 1924 Summer Olympics at Paris, she lost in the semifinals against Helen Wills as well as the following match for bronze against Kathleen McKane.[1]

After the French championships were opened for international players in 1925, Golding had problems to compete. She played at Paris for the last time in 1933 where she lost to Sylvie Jung Henrotin in the second round.[2]
