Excuse me Mark, but can you check again? Because here you have written that Antoinette was the younger sister of Kate, while yesterday, in the last post, #340 , she seems the elder.

Checked, and new information is correct.
That would make Katie Gillou the youngest tennis player ever to play at the Olympics (age 13 in the mixed doubles in 1900).
Are you sure about the date of birth?
Or maybe it was the elder sister who played?
