Re: Serve and Volley-40's tennis
C'mon Triv-the only thing really masculine about "Bobbie" was her nickname! She was a tomboy though, no doubts there. One of Pauline's trademarks was
jumping the net after a victory.
She was No. 1 in her econ's class in Rollins. Gets a scholarship to play on the men's basketball team. Then gets a masters at Columbia, No. 1 in Econ. This was a tomboy that stayed one. Who goes into real estate and manages her life that independently? I mean that was the 40's not now. I mean it was her mom that put her in tennis because she was afraid of her masculinity. Who has killer instinct like hers Connolly, King, Evert, Graf, and Seles? Who beats Althea Gibson when they are 40 and five months pregnant--2 and 3? Then a local pro said in 1976 that Pauline could play on the WTA tour. More on the line of Georgia O'Keefe, I say. A tomboy who never grew up despite marriage and five children. It is there.
