I don't know, but it takes real talent to fall 64 in the third to that head case Rosie Casals.

The data entry person for those details was having a bad day, huh? Name wrong and DOB wrong.

Born in 1944. She was actually a doubles partner of Virginia Wade in Fed Cup.

2. Joyce Williams

"We were so innocent!" remembers Williams (whose married name is now Bennett). "We lived through the amateur set-up, then we became 'shamateurs', where we got a little bit of money on the side, then suddenly we were professionals. It was a great time to play, suddenly going from being worth a tea-ticket to earning money." She was knocked out of the singles competition in the second round in 1969, but went on to her greatest success in doubles, making the semi-finals with fellow Scot Winnie Shaw in 1972. Like Wade and Jones, she remembers the Tinling dresses as one of Wimbledon's particular treats: "All the dresses were one-offs."

Williams retired in 1976, going on to work as a coach (Sue Barker was a pupil) and a BBC radio commentator for more than two decades. "Lovely, because it's very easy to pontificate on people who are doing all the hard work," she says. Now living within walking distance of the All England Club, she still plays there two or three times a week.



The misspelling is to hide the fact that she was taking money under the table!

Bit sad that there is a French Wikipedia entry but not an English one as far as I can find (or am I missing it?) Maybe one of us should do a translation.

She was definitely into espionage. She does not even represent a country!

I suppose tennis was a great place for spys to hide before the "open" era.

Cute picture of Ginny there.

Serendipity brought this player to light again. I don't remember her at all, but...I wasn't that old then.

Here she is in Eastbourne in 1969

This is a great find. Thanks!

Anyone who complains about the short tennis outfits of today should take a look. :lol:

I love this clip, especially the random shots of the grass and the stone paths.
