Updated the entry on Sabina Simmonds. I found a cool article in Italian and found info from an old media guide

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Patty Reese's date of birth is incorrect. It may be 11 August 1951, she was a teenager in the 1960s.

-----

Is Kerry Melville's middle name "Ann" or "Anne" ?

Last year I posted the info about Reese on Married Names thread. I took her DOB (11 August 1941 in Corbin, KY) here:
http://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/...yerID=20004731
http://www.wtatennis.com/players/pla...atty-ann-reese
and I don't remember where I took the news that with Mr. Meyer was her 2nd marriage.

But now I see that Reese (born in Philadelphia and raised in St.Petersburg, Florida) is born in July 1952.
http://news.google.com/newspapers?ni...g=6923,1580164
(In this article is written that when she "was just five days old, she underwent an abdominal operation for removal of a benign tumor.")

So, is it possible that there are 2 tennis players with the same name Patty Ann Reese? (they seem born in different years and different towns.)

This pic is of Reese born in 1952

Attachment 69025

Thanks for the reply, Jimbo I suppose that ITF and WTA have a wrong player on their websites (or at least that the date and place of birth are incorrect). I checked some old newspapers on the Internet and it was Patty Ann Reese of St. Petersburg (born in 1952) who participated in Wimbledon in 1975 - the article below (from 27 June 1975) describes her as a 22-year old player !

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Hi Jimbo-could "Joan" be an error? The Wimbledon website has "Julie" Wilshere.

Here is her current entry:

WILSHIRE, JULIE (Julie M Wilshere)
South Africa
Married Stepan Koudelka (b 21.2.1945), late 1970/early 1971
[Active 1960s-70s.]
Winner: Natal Championships 1966, Vigo 1971
RU: Northumberland Championships 1969

Played Wimbledon in 1969 and 1970. Her record at Wimbledon was 1-2. Stephan was a tennis player from Czechoslovakia.

Hi Rollo! When I found Miss Wilshere on Wimbledon website, I discovered that her name in that source is wrong.
Her name is Joan, not Julie.
She and her husband, the ex tennis player Stepan Koudelka, live now in Osnabruck, Germany, and they are bridge players too.

OT:
I am so schocked and disgusted by Bartoli's win at Wimbledon... that I didn't yet update the Wimbledon honour roll in my thread!
I refuse to accept the reality! A tennis player so neurotic and rude!
And also very lucky: she has won Wimbledon without defeat a player among first 16 of the ranking!

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Good to hear from you Jimbo!

I have been away for what seems like ages.

I changed the entry back to Joan. Take another look and let me know what you think.

Do we know at all why Bentivolglio suddenly quit tennis? Very odd.

I was excited to find out the identity of Mrs William Endicott (1920s) the other day. Will post more today if time.

Sorry the victory by the Gremlin (my nickname for Bartoli-I have nicknames for all of them) upset you so. I was hoping for a victory by Sabine myself, and before her Radwanska. I would bet a lot on Aggie to win rather than choke as Sabine did in the final-but that's tennis. I credit Marion for breaking with daddy dearest-a lesson Caro Wozniacki has yet to learn.

Hope you recover.
