Gretchen Magers is an American who had some good results at Wimbledon in the late 80's. She was a competent player.

Some fantastic doubles players in that group. Love the Novotna/Sukova combination.

Have they changed the eligibility rule this year in order to have a better field? I thought players have to have reached SF/F in singles or doubles to qualify - Croft surely only ever did that as a junior..?

I love this event, it's my favourite part of going to wimbledon! Although as I'm not going this year, I'm glad I'm not missing Ginny and Wenders!

Pam last played this event in 2001, when she partnered Virginia Wade....they lost 6-0 6-0 in one of their matches, it was an absolute massacre, and Pam couldn't even barely serve! In 2002, I spoke to Pam and asked why she wasn't playing this event and she said she was so embarrassed after that double bagel, she decided she'd never play it again! Poor Pam ;)

They should go back to the true legends and oldies ;) - and why is Annabel Croft in the draw?!?

Rosalyn Nideffer didn't do much at Wimbledon, either. I guess they needed to fill in the draw :p. I was available!!! ;)
