In her entry correct her second name. It was Milne, not Milme.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

This is a great list, but there are some notable omissions. Why no mention of Bettina Bunge, Stephanie Rehe, Kathy Horvath, Melissa Gurney, or Debbie Spence?

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

From "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" (1935): Re the Capri (Italy) tournament: "Joan Ridley paired with Miss Megan Lloyd George in the ladies' doubles."

For more on Lady Megan Lloyd George, see here: http://www.liberalhistory.org.uk/ite...item=biography

I post also here what I have just posted in 1935 thread:
1935 results

--------------

Probably Mrs M. Chamberlain was the former Aline Mary Knapp (M. for Mary and not for her husband's name).

Aline Mary Knapp Chamberlain and Violet Chamberlain Owen often played together the Doubles
http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....&postcount=194

Aline Mary Knapp played the Mixed with her future husband Roger A. Chamberlain
http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....&postcount=204

so it's possible that Aline Mary Knapp Chamberlain and Violet Chamberlain Owen were sisters-in-law

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Imelda "Melita" Ramirez: her parents' names were Juan and Imelda - people started to call her "Melita" to distinguish her from her mother !
