I'm creating a database for Martina Hingis, but I've come across some names in her junior records that are unfamiliar to me. I need to know the christian names and the nationalities of these women. Can anyone help? Most are names from juniors circa 1993 and 1994, as well as ITF events.

First names and nationalities of players that I need:

Ittensohn
Listowska
Lucarelli
Mott
Walon
Bakalarova
Bitter (so familiar, but can't recall her exact name. Is she Dutch?)
Jimenez-Sanz (Is this Maria Elena of Argentina?)
Nemsakova
Zahnova
Mariana Vladulescu (nationality?)
Zelenayova
Marradi
Malec
Campano
Abrate
Pastor (I believe she might be French?)
Kein
Monhartova
Croson
Hearn
Toby (This is her surname.)

Some of the spellings might be a bit off as I found them on various sites, including Hoon's Martina site (not that Hoon misspelled any of the names he supplied. ;)).

I have scoured itfonline.com up and down and wasn't able to identify these players. And itfjuniors.com doesn't seem to keep an archive of former junior players, or their records either.

Please, please, please, can anyone help? :bounce:

Let me extend my gratitude beforehand to anyone who can be of any assistance to my cause. :)

I should probably also check:

Safarova

Hoon's site has her listed as "V. Safarova" but on itfonline.com, I found a Lucie Safarova, who might have been a junior around the same time as Martina was.

There was a Spanish player named Eva Jimenez-Sanz, but I don't know if she's the one you're looking for. :)

Carol Lucarelli (I thought she was French, though her name sounds Italian)

Mirella Vladulescu (Native Romanian, but was playing for Germany; a couple of years ago was briefly the top-ranked U.S. collegiate; may still be playing college tennis)

Maria Dolores Campano was from Ecquador

Anne Pastor was French

Only ones I recognize

I've checked the 2001ís Italian national rankings and Iíve found Lucarelliís first name is Carola, so she's from Italy indeed. :)

In 1994 an Italian magazine published the rankings by country as of March 7th, and Iíve found these ones:

Isabella Listowska, Poland
Katarina Malec, Poland
Zuzana Nemsakova, Slovakia
Maria Eugenia Abrate, Argentina
Lara Bitter, the Netherlands
Eva Jimenez-Sanz, Spain

The nearest I could find to "Kein" and "Taube" (although there used to be a player named "Kiene") from that time period are a couple of German players:
Steffi Keim
Kerstin Taube

I have another source I could check when I get the time.
