UPDATE

LEVY,NELLY?

www.tennisforum.com/62173857-post3678.html

In The Grand Slam record book, at Roland Garros 1946 it says Bertha Lavigne lost to Dorothy Bundy not Nelly Levy.

However which of these 2 ladies it is, I think it will be nearly impossible to find out any details about them.

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

A Jamaican player whose identity is difficult to pin down: Mrs C.S. Johnstone. She won the women's singles title at the All-Jamaica Championships at least once, in 1952. She was more than likely the wife of Cecil Stuart Ferdinand Johnstone...

Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Yes, I'm sure that's the same person, but her married name is misspelt, it should be McNair. That's how it's always spelt in genealogical and contemporary sources.
