Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

GRAY, Mary (United Kingdom) [4 June 1878-] [Mrs. James Curtis-Whyte, 1899-1907; Mrs. Robin Welsh, from 1909] [Active 1900s-20s.]

Born: Dalkeith, Midlothian, Scotland. Education: Ministers' Daughters' College, Edinburgh. Best scoring stroke: slow backhand across the court. Other recreations: curling. Profession [1935]: lawn tennis coach.
--

This player took part in some lawn tennis tournaments in Continental Europe in the summer of 1908, e.g. in Vienna.

From "Lowe's Lawn Tennis Annual" (1936): "The Humorous Side of Tennis". Mrs Robin Welsh: "I was playing in Vienna in 1908 against one of the best woment there, who was quite a good volleyer for those days. Half-way through she had got me well on the run, sending the ball into the far left corner of the court. I just managed to reach it, putting it softly up for her to place anywhere, instead she missed! The next thing I saw was the lady throwing her racket down and dancing on the strings like a naughty child in a tantrum. I'm afraid I laughed out loud, which she said was the best I could have done as it made her pull herself together."

Slecna isn't a first name, in Czech it means Miss.

Is there any way to capture it?
