Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Added a new entry for the second Naomi Trentham (Mrs D Trentham)

Added the name for Totta Zehden's husband.
Biographies of Female Tennis Players

Jimbo: I only found Mrs Hazel Cheadle. Perhaps any "Heather" Cheadle's we see are an error? What do you think?

On TennisForum Hazel appears 36 times and Heather 28 times.
I have no idea. On the web I have found nothing of useful.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

In my opinion it's quite possible that Mrs. D Trentham's first name wasn't "Naomi", and it just appeared in the Blast when she was wrongly associated with another woman whose first name was already known.

Mainly for English results in the 1950s and early 60s? If that's the case it's probably my error and they should read Hazel.

Possible LKK, but I think she was a Naomi, as the British magazine from 1936 has a quote from her partner calling her "Mie"-a likely nickname for Naomi.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

I think it may be the same player. What is your opinion ?

Gordon, Mrs. W. (from 27 Nov 1944) [SEE LUMB, Margarita Evelyn "Margot"]

Gordon, (Mrs.) Margot (United Kingdom) [Mrs. W. H. L. Gordon, from before 1950; maiden name unknown] [Active 1950s.] [SEE ???]

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Using Binoxals' site I added info to Louise Raymond's bio at:
Biographies of Female Tennis Players

added a picture, career span, a middle name, and her exact date and place of marriage.

One at a time!

Yes, Hazel appears for English results from 1952 to 1963, and Heather from 1952 to 1965.
On the web Hazel is much more frequent than Heather. Only one time a player named Heather appears:

Thanks Sir Sleuth!

That makes me 95% sure I inserted "Heather" in as errors. I'll double check the outlier from 1964 Wimbledon.

This project makes sense

I added some leading players from Utah to the list (Ruth Crow, Ruby Hammel, Diane Hunsaker, Janice Romney, Sally Tipton and Kate Williams). You can find their short bios here:
