A mysterious Polish player of the 1930s

I'm hoping someone can help with this one.

A Mlle Sioda was entered in the French Chmps in 1939 but did not play. I suspect she is also ghalf of the mixed team that defaulted in the 2R.

The London Times also reports a Mlle Sioda winning the Coupe de Nations mixed with Czesław Spychala in 1938.

I tried a polish search or two, but came up short. Could her name possibly be Siuda in Polish?

Zofia Sioda. If I remember correctly she didn't manage to get a visa on time, that's why she was not able to take part in the French'39. She was a promising young player and participated in some tournaments on the French Riviera in 1938 and 1939.

This short info looks just like her bio for the Encyclopedia, hehe.
