BLACKMAN,JILL

www.tennisforum.com/25177041-post204.html

The date of birth 13th November 1936(from wikipedia) seems inconsistent with the biography in British Lawn Tennis October 1966.
This biography says she was born on 24th July 1942 Sydney. When not playing she worked as secretary.

She was active at Wimbledon between 1962 and 1966. She is still single in the 1968 Australia Electoral rolls at Abbotsford as a secretary. Her full name is Jill Alison Blackman.By 1972 she has married Peter Emmerson as shown in the Australia Electoral rolls.

COURTEIX,FRANCOISE

Francoise Courteix and Paule Courteix are different people. A recent biography was written for Paule and a date of birth 25th Oct 1937 was obtained from Dawson's annual 1961. Coopers Annual for 1961 gives a year date of birth for Francoise as 1944.
