No, they are different people.
Patricia Reyes born 7 April 1946
Rosie Reyes Darmon born 23 March 1939

For example look the 1R of Roland Garros 1965, where they both played.

Here's a pic of Pilar Barril playing Wimbledon in 1956. Her skirt was very popular at the time

Re: Latin/South American women in Tennis

I would add Francisca Subirana, who was the runner-up at the 1920 World Hard Court Championships (the true forerunner to the French Open).

She was born in 1900 and had an interesting life after retiring from tennis. In 1924, she married Dr. Ricardo Wolf, a German Jew, in Cuba. They resided there for many years and supported the Cuban Revolution and Fidel Castro. Castro appointed Wolf as ambassador to Israel in 1961, a post he held until Cuba severed diplomatic relations in 1973. Instead of returning to Cuba, they remained in Israel (defected?) for the rest of their lives, dieing within a month of each other in 1981. In 1975, they established the Wolf Foundation with a donation of $10 million. One of the purposes of the foundation is to "award prizes to outstanding scientists and artists ... for achievements in the interest of mankind and friendly relations among peoples...."

She was certainly a widow by 1955, when it was rumoured she was about to become Juan Peron's third wife. That would have made her first lady of Argentina!

If it's ok with everyone I may create a separate thread for Weiss.

Sonfro-when I have time I will look into your post on the World Hard Court Chmps.

Re: Latin/South American women in Tennis

She was twice or even three times quarterfinalist at the FO

I think she reached Wimbledon quarters aswell, or at least the fourth round once

Just to go on with the issue

I left a post in the Roland Garros singles results regarding the World Hardcourts Championships, could you please give me some more information about it? I also guess that you'll be very interested on the link

also, I'm looking forward to hear more about the spanish tennis players because I'm kind of writing a guide to feminine tennis in Spain and I'd like to have more information on the older players. Any help is appreciated

Re: Latin/South American women in Tennis

Thank you so much Sonfo for uncovering more on Maria Teran Weiss. It sounds as if she had to endure so much sorrow. I was wrong about Heraldo's nationality, but I'm nearly certain he died at a young age, making Maria a widow.

Jah Rastafari--that's a beautiful picture that IMO, captures some of her allure.


Regarding her status-she was often a top twenty player for sure. I believe she made the quarters at the French one year-but don't quote me on it!

I AM CERTAIN she won the River Plate (Rio Plata) event many times. Her finals opponent was often a Ms Piedrola.

Re: Latin/South American women in Tennis

Yes María was not allowed to play during the goverment of Aramburu,because was an active peronista.
Arumburu said that she could not play tennis for 99 years something quite redicouls of course.

Re: Latin/South American women in Tennis

I was thinking Portugal should be included if Spain was but if it is being defined as "Latin" then surely Italians would qualify?
