.COCHET A PROFESSIONAL,.
PARIS, September 9.
It was announced to-day that H. Cochet, the French lawn tennis champion, had become a professional.
"Franco Is losing her trump card in international matches, but it Is only fair that Cochet, after his generous services to French tennis, should look after him- self," said Jean Borotra.
Cochet forecasts that the time Is com« lng when all players will receive a per- centage of the profits from the "gates." and the distinction between amateurs and professionals be abolished.
