Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

I fixed a link for Beverly Baker, added info about Lily Addison. Thanks for Ginger's bio, Rollo and thanks for the pictures of players and these lists of their achievements, Jimbo

Pat Ward, Yola Ramirez and Ch. Mercelis are linked, so you can add Jimbo's info. I couldn't find Melita's bio.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

In the above pic posted about Rosetta Gagliardi, she is together an unknown player: Teda Marchini, or probably Leda Marchini, because Teda isn't an Italian name.
I know nothing about her, but I think that we could add her to the Encyclopedia, hoping to find info.

I totally agree. We are adding even the "mysteries" in the hope they will one day be cleared up. Thanks Jimbo

She is added at:
Biographies of Female Tennis Players

Gagliardi info added in-thanks

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Ginger's husband's added-thanks Jimbo.

P.S. As a film fan perhaps you know her second husband, Lew Ayres. He was the star in the classic film All Quiet on the Western Front.

Yola Ramirez added-Jimbo-are you sure it is Yolande, and not Yolanda? I'll double check my Dunlop's tonuight.

Melita added at: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

And Mercelis added.
Added info on Judith Dibar.

Caught up to here.

I saw that film but I didn't remember Lew Ayres...

You are correct, Ramirez is Yolanda.
Her full name is Yolanda del Monte Carmelo Ramírez Partida.

In Mercelis info have been copied 2 times her lost finals.
