RE HERNANDEZ,CARMEN

Isn't this a mistake. Please see

www.tennisforum.com/25282922-post393.html

I think it should be Carmen Fernandez ?

As a check the USTA Yearbook 1949, has her as Mrs Carmen C. Fernandez in the 1948 US Womens singles results .

A mistake for certes Rosamund. I thank you for catching it.

If anyone has an Ancestry account could find the maiden name of Bertha Thompson, grandmother of Jimmy Connors.
She is the first in this list:

HERNANDEZ, CARMEN (nee Carmen ????)
Mexico
Married to Raul Hernandez by 1948

Raul was also a tennis player, and as husband and wife they played mixed doubles at the 1948 US Nationals. Carmen also entered the singles as the #6 foreign seed, but was beaten easily by Betty Rosenquest 6-0 6-1 in the opening round. The grass surface would no doubt have been very foreign to her.
An error on my part (It is Fernandez). Thanks to Rosamund for catching it.
