I just noticed this on the rankings. Did she just get married, or have I been being dense?

I think she has been married for awhile, because the ITF website has had her name like that for awhile now.

I guess she finally decided to inform the wtatour or something.

Interesting, anyone know??

Its her second surename. In Spain is usually used two surenames. That not means being married. Its the same like Arantxa Sanchez Vicario o Virginia Ruano Pascual. In Spain, we dont change the single surname when people get married.

No she doesn't ;)
If you read the names of Spanish players you'll see lots of them are quoted with 2 surnames, that's because everyone here has 2 surnames, a father's and a mother's one ASV, María Antonia Sánchez Lorenzo, Gala León García, Cristina Torrens Valero, Anabel Medina Garrigues, etc ... don't ask me why they do that with some players but not with others as Serna, Marrero, or Conchita though :confused:

:haha:
Just coincidental, seems to be quite common in Canary Islands, the part of Spain she's from ;)

ASV - was originally called Arantxa Sanchez and then added her mothers name to make Sanchez Vacraio and then her career took off - maybe Parra is doing the same to boast her carrer? :) :d
