Who is Mrs. Willians?

http://www.wtatennis.com/page/Player...1~8993,00.html

She made the QF at the US Open at age -4!

Anyone with more information, please let me know...

funny what happens when you make a typo when trying to look venus's h2h...

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"

I don't know, but it takes real talent to fall 64 in the third to that head case Rosie Casals.

The data entry person for those details was having a bad day, huh? Name wrong and DOB wrong.

Born in 1944. She was actually a doubles partner of Virginia Wade in Fed Cup.

2. Joyce Williams

"We were so innocent!" remembers Williams (whose married name is now Bennett). "We lived through the amateur set-up, then we became 'shamateurs', where we got a little bit of money on the side, then suddenly we were professionals. It was a great time to play, suddenly going from being worth a tea-ticket to earning money." She was knocked out of the singles competition in the second round in 1969, but went on to her greatest success in doubles, making the semi-finals with fellow Scot Winnie Shaw in 1972. Like Wade and Jones, she remembers the Tinling dresses as one of Wimbledon's particular treats: "All the dresses were one-offs."

Williams retired in 1976, going on to work as a coach (Sue Barker was a pupil) and a BBC radio commentator for more than two decades. "Lovely, because it's very easy to pontificate on people who are doing all the hard work," she says. Now living within walking distance of the All England Club, she still plays there two or three times a week.
The misspelling is to hide the fact that she was taking money under the table!
