Bio He was the fourth child and the fourth son of Joseph Marie √Čtienne Samazeuilh and Jeanne Marie Marguerite Seignouret.
He was the member of S.A. Villa Primerose de Bordeaux.
After he retired, he became journalist and writer.

According to William Tilden: "The New French Champion of 1921 who defeated Andre Gobert most unexpectedly in the challenge round, is an interesting player of the mental type. He is anything but French in his game. His style is rather that of the crafty American or English player than the hard-hitting Frenchman.

Samazieuhl* is an exponent of crafty patball. His service is a medium pace slice, well placed but not decisive. His ground strokes are a peculiar stiff arm chop varied at times with an equally cramped drive, yet his extreme mobility allows him to cover a tremendous amount of court, while his return, which is well disguised, is capable of great angles. His volleying is reliable but lacks severity and punch. He makes excellent low volleys, but cannot put away shoulder high balls while his overhead is not deadly.

It is Samazieuhl's* clever generalship and his ability to recover seemingly impossible shots that win matches for him. He is a comparatively new tournament player, and should improve greatly as he gains confidence and experience."

*Tilden permanently misspelled Samazeuilh's name swapping the place of the letter 'i' as well as the 'lh'.
