The Four Musketeers were Jean Borotra, Jacques Brugnon, Henri Cochet and Rene Lacoste. They were actually four tennis players from France, given their name from the Dumas book. They dominated the game of tennis in the second half of the 1920s and early 1930s, winning numerous Grand Slam titles. They also led France to six straight Davis Cup wins, 1927 through 1932, in the days in which Cup matches had national importance equivalent to today's FIFA World Cup finals.
