- husband Bill won Australian Champs
- daughter Michelle also played on the circuit

- Sisters Carol and Gail Sherriff (later Gail Chanfreau/Gail Lovera of France)

- Phil Dent (Australian R/U) married Betty-Anne Stuart (WTA player) and produced:
- Current ATP player Taylor Dent

- Siblings Nancy (French, Aussie champ) and Cliff Richey (US #1 or 2)

- Richard & Michala Krajicek

- The Rochus brothers

- Sisters Chris, Jeanne and Marie (?) Evert

- Siblings Vitus and Ruta Gerulaitis

- Brothers David and John Lloyd (plus ex-wife Chris Evert-Lloyd) - was there another brother??

- Siblings John & Tracey Austin (Wimbledon mixed together)

- Evonne Goolagong and Wendy Turnbull also played Wimbledon mixed with their brothers.

- May Sutton-Bundy (Wimbledon champ), her US-ranked husband and their daughter Dodo Bundy (Australian Champ)

- Lew Hoad (Aus/Fre/Wim champ) and wife Jenny (qf Wimb, sf Aus)

- Harry Hopman (Aus Davis Cup star) and wife Nell (Slams from 1930s to 1960s) and together Aus Mixed champs

Re: Tennis-Siblings

The only argies I can remember are Vanesa & Erica Krauth. They are twins and they won a bunch of ITF doubles titles until Vanesa decided to stop with competitive tennis. Erica still plays here and there, following Hanna Nooni around the world.
