Anne Keothavong's Dad an ITF official?

I've just downloaded the latest edition of the ITF "This Week" newsletter. It has a list of people who have just become "White Badge" ITF officials, officiating for the first time on day 1 of the Makarska, Croatia $10k recently.
Interestingly the only Brit there is James Keothavong. Surely this must be a relative of Anne, as the name's too much of a coincidence! I know her younger brother's only about 12 so it can't be him, but I wonder if it's her father?

James is Annes older brother who from what I understand was a promising player until his parents decided Anne was a better prospect. The LTA are now fast tracking him as a lines judge. He was also another Barnet College student

Would he be allowed to officiate in one of Anne's matches? I'm just curious to know if there are any ITF rules on the subject.

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.
