As far as I can tell, right now its Brough then Hart. Have I missed someone? It would be nice if we saw more of them.

Pauline Betz is still kicking, as is Margaret DuPont. Both born in the late 1910s I think. Louise is a few years younger.

It depends on how you define "great." Dorothy Bundy Cheney is 94. Nelly Adamson Landry was a close second until her death in February of this year.

Dodo probably is the oldest living woman with a grand slam singles title. What a troper! Does anyone know if she still plays the seniors?

I don't think Dodo ever won a singles slam. M. du Pont was born in 1918, which makes her 92 or very close.

Cheney won the 1938 Australian Championships.

Oh! I am reading here, that Nelly Adamson Landry has died in February 2010!? Is it right? Where did you get the information from?

Merry Xmas, Doc Taxon...
