Oh... thanks LKK!
Excuse me, my words were not a criticism. I thought that if I didn't see some player it was a problem of mine.
I know how demanding is the Encyclopedia for you and Rollo!

(In Valerio's biography, her 1935 lost finals are written two times. And at the beginning there is a repetition: "Clerici called called")

Sometimes it's hard for me to find anything here, too, hehe. Just a few months and everything will be in its place

You are doing a great job LKK. While I do want to follow Mark in editing and cleaning up years I think the task of finding every name in 1939 (for example) would be too much for me at this time.

Instead I will focus on going through the slams in year order and building up the Enclyclopedia in that way. True, we'll have more Brits, Americans, Aussies and French initially, but if I scan the slams first I think we'll have the basic skeleton in place.

Yes, you're right, a couple of days ago I opened the 1939 thread, and I hoped to help you in some way - but there were too many lines in that thread, so I just didn't know where to start, hehe. I think that sooner or later we will have every decent player in our Encyclopedia.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Luzzatti, Malenchini and Strozzi added to the list, thanks Jimbo ! I'll wait with Misses Macquay, maybe someone will be able to confirm their nationality. I suppose they were British members of Italian tennis clubs, that's why they were allowed to compete in "Campionati nazionali assoluti d'Italia".

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Margery and Maud Maquay [Active 1910s-20s.] were very probably sisters. If not sisters, they were cousins. They won the Doubles at Italian Closed Championships 1925, were in Italian rankings from 1922 to 1926, in our yearly threads are present in 1911 and 1923, and they were both painters too.
I have found info on Margery only.

The Maquays was an Irish banking family, transferred through marriage to Florence in Italy in the early part of the nineteenth-century.
http://www.britishinstitute.it/en/ar...collection.asp

John Leland Maquay jr. married Elena Gigli (Margery's grandmother) of an old Tuscan family in 1828, and he lived in Florence for the following thirty years, before return to Ireland with his wife ten years before death.
In Florence he founded and ran the Pakenham and Maquay bank, and they had four sons: William was Margery's father.

Margery married Julian Edward Caccia (b 1867-d 1941).
The Caccia family originated in Tuscany - it is mentioned in Canto 29 of Dante's Purgatory - and settled in England in the early 19th century.
A nephew of Julian Caccia was Lord Harold Caccia, a British diplomat.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_...,_Baron_Caccia

Probably Margery had foreign nationality until 1941. As foreigner, during WWII all her possessions were confiscated and returned in January 1941 when her husband recovered the Italian citizenship and Margery renounced the British citizenship.
I have found a document of Italy Kingdom 1941, where this fact is told. It writes "British citizenship" but the Maquays were Irish.
