Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

A website page with some information on the Yugoslavian player always listed in sources as M. Crnadak:

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

I confess some confusion here:

Quote:
Maria Murkovic, Joško and Vjera's second daughter was called Mica after their firstborn, who died at a young age.
She married Milan Crnadak and they had three childrem: Joško, Zdenka and Seka.
Tominac incorrectly has her as champion of Yugoslavia in tennis, whereas it's her daughter Seka who became champion.
So is our M Crnadek the Maria (or Mica) born in 1881-or her daughter Seka?
Or are there two Crnadeks?

For the moment we know our M Crnadak (not Crnadek) as:
1) Marcia, active in 1950s. She was RU in Yugoslavian Champs. 1951 '55, and in Berlin Champs. 1955.
2) Monica, RU in Doubles in Closed Croatian Championships 1940
3) in Yugoslavian ranking 1953, number one was M Milonja-Crnadak

So could Seka be a nickname?

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

This is a link to a long blog on the Turkish player Bahtiye Musluoglu, or Mursaloglu (1918-99). The text is in both English and Turkish:

I have read your link but I am puzzled: Vera Alfi Jensen married 30 April 1924, but Vera Nielsen born 25 September 1921... (while Kurt born 19 November 1930)
Biographies of Female Tennis Players

Are you sure that Vera and Kurt have the same mother?

This site seems confirm my doubts, as it writes that Kurt Nielsen had a brother only.
