Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Check this, please.

In our yearly threads Owen McHaney, from Arkansas, often appears, active from circa 1954 to 1965.

The Arkansas Tennis Hall of Fame inducted Virginia Owen McHaney in 1981
http://www.arktennis.com/arkansas_te..._fame_members/
I don't know if she is, or her mother, whose info are below. Was also her mother a player? Or also the daughter is named Virginia (and Owen) as her mother?

LEILA VIRGINIA OWEN
United States
Born circa 1914
Died 13 September 1997
Married Edwin Lafayette McHaney Jr. (29.1.1910-15.11.1974)

It's her mother for sure, because Owen McHaney was still a junior in the late 1950-ies.

Also, this genealogy that you linked above confirms that Leila Virginia Owen and Edwin Lafayette McHaney Jr. had a child whose first name was Owen.

Perhaps I have badly expressed myself: the woman, of whom I have posted dates and marriage is the mother of course (I have written "whose info are below"), but I would know if she was a player too, so the Arkansas Hall of Fame can have inducted her.
If the mother wasn't a player, then her daughter is named Virginia Owen, not only Owen.

It's the only place on the internet where they call her "Virginia", so either she preferred her middle name "Owen", or they mixed Owen McHaney with her mother Virginia Owen McHaney... Owen is not a typical female name, so maybe even people who inducted her to the Arkansas Hall of Fame tried to find a more suitable first name for her, hehe.

I think it was mine this mistake, some times ago. Sorry!
The exact entry is this:

SUSAN "Sue" VINTON
United States
Born 13 November 1953
Married Gewan Maharaj (b 28 July 1950-), 11 May 1973

I got mixed up with Susie "Sue" Mehmedbasich, born 16 September 1957

They are different players: in Q2 of Missouri International 1973, Susie Mehmedbasich defeated Susan Vinton Maharaj 6-4 6-4
1973 results

See also this post:
Virginia Slims of 1974 Results
"Sue Maharaj - you can look up her results on both the ITF and WTA sites under her maiden name, Susan Vinton. Though the WTA has her date of birth wrong, the ITF is correct. Her husband Gewan Maharaj is from Trinidad and Tobago, was a member of the West Indies Davis Cup team and also played on the ATP Tour briefly in the 70s."
