Re: Where is Francoise Durr Browning?
Have you asked her of how and why Francoise and Darlene became doubles partner at the 1969 U.S. Open?
Hi there. I did ask Boyd if they had any pics of them at the USO but he doesn't think so.
I do have a video clip of them winning the match including each set point and also the match point.
If memory serves me correctly, Frankie's partner pulled out with an injury at the last minute so Darlene entered as a wild card with Frankie. Something like that I think.
