Guess what I found?

I was looking through my back issues of Tennis Week, searching for Amanda Coetzer's doubles results for Linda, and I discovered an old sample issue from 1989. In the back was a picture of... Happy Ho! She was a junior at Columbia then, and captain of the tennis team.

(If I only had a scanner.)

If anone's going somewhere where they have back issues, I'll let you know which one it was if you wish.

There was no specific mention of any tennis-playing family members, but it's entirely possible. As for her looks, she was about average. Not extremely pretty, but certainly not ugly. She was thin.

Doing a bit of extrapolation, she would only be about 33 or 34 now. She could have still been playing on tour. But I don't recall her ever cracking the top 200. (If she did, it was brief.) That's probably why she retired so young.

Sounds like she never went to far or made a lot of money. I guess that makes her a "Po" Ho!

I can now confirm that the woman on this page, Janet H. Ho, is one and the same as Happy Ho.

And to think, there were skeptics when I first mentioned the name.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Happy Ho!
