A doubles specialist, Jacques Brugnon is perhaps the least known of the “Four Musketeers”, four French tennis players who dominated the game for nearly a decade. Teamed up with Borotra, Cochet and Lacoste, Brugnon won four Davis Cup finals. He never won a Grand Slam singles title, but won seven doubles at Roland Garros, four at Wimbledon and one at the Australian Open. He also partnered Cochet to a silver medal at the 1924 Paris Olympics. In 1976, all four Musketeers were inducted simultaneously into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
