Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Hi Rollo:
Could you combine these 2 bios in the post No. 266 ?
Biographies of Female Tennis Players
Biographies of Female Tennis Players

----
Conflicting information in the post No. 265:
Biographies of Female Tennis Players
Did not marry. Probate was granted to Barclays Bank and Wilfred L. Hollick, retired stockbroker and retired tennis player, husband of Ada Margaret (Spencer), herself a former tennis player who appears in several draws as "Mrs W.L. Hollick".

Known as "Miss G. Bracewell", who also took part in lawn tennis tournaments, usually at the same time as her sister Margaret, with whom she appears in several draws. It is possible that Margaret was actually the latter player's second name, but, as sometimes happens, that she had become known by that name, like other players such as (Edith) Maud Shackle and (Florence) Angela Mortimer.

The early Censuses of England and Wales contain biographical information on a Bracewell family with several children, including two daughters, Emily Margaret and Gertrude Mary. These two girls were the daughters of Edmund Bracewell, a cotton manufacturer, and his wife Jane, and were born six years apart, in Gargrave in Yorkshire. (The Bracewell sisters took part in tournaments in several of the Yorkshire tournaments during their lawn tennis careers.)

Both sisters latter married, (Emily) Margaret’s husband being a George Moore...

---
Again two bios for one player (the post No. 1900 is already linked, so combine info in it):
Biographies of Female Tennis Players
Biographies of Female Tennis Players

Was her middle name May or Mary ?

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Paula Smith
United States
Born 10 January, 1957

A doubles specialist who was the lesser known of two Smiths on tour during the late 70's/80's, Paula was widely known for her fun, carefree attitude on and off court. Paula rarely made an impact on a singles tournament, yet she reached the French Open final in women's doubles in 1981 with Candy Reynolds and was seeded as high as #5 with Reynolds in both Wimbledon and US Open events in the early 80's. She won 10 doubles titles in her career with partners such as Reynolds, Anne Smith, Pam Shriver and Betsy Nagelsen, and reached the French mixed final in 1985 with Francisco Gonzalez.

Sandy Collins
United States
Born 13 October 1958

A good doubles player who reached a high doubles ranking of #17, Sandy also reached #28 in singles. She played 17 consecutive US Opens from 1978 until 1994. She reached 18 doubles finals in her career and won four of those. In 1991, Sandy reached the quarterfinals of both the French Open (w/ Mary Pierce) and the US Open (w/ Rachel McQuillan) along with three other Slam semifinals. Her career results show a revolving door of doubles partnerships.
Sandy was recognized by Oakley Sunglasses and became the first tennis player to be endorsed by the company. After retirement, Sandy coached at several colleges and universities, including being the Head Tennis Coach at Texas Tech University.
She is currently the Assistant Director Events Management at Texas Tech University.
