Re: Blast Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

The profile manager of her entry on WikiTree has made further research on Geneanet.com and has found that Clodagh Keun was only married once and her birth surname was Wright. Her father was Louis Alexander Wright. She was born in Sri Lanka and married Frederick Keun there in 16 September 1933. They had 2 children, Anne Caroline Keun and Jeremy Peter Keun. Her daughter married Georges Boyce.

So her correct info are:

CLODAGH ANNYS SHELTON WRIGHT
Ceylon
Born 16 October 1909
Died June 1999
Married Frederick Herbert Keun (17 August 1907-1982), 16 September 1933

Added-thanks Jimbo. How are you doing my friend? Please double check to see if my entry looks ok.
Hi Rollo! I am fine, I have nothing special to narrate.

About this tennis player, after your entry I am no more sure that Clodagh was twice married.
http://www.tennisforum.com/75491289-post4356.html

At first we knew that a Mrs C. Wright won the Ceylon Championships in 1932 and ‘33,
The Island - Home
and that a Mrs F. Keun was runner-up in that tournament in 1955
http://www.tennisforum.com/19142820-post11.html

Then I have found that Clodagh was the name of that Wright
https://thuppahi.wordpress.com/2016/...ays-1915-1990/

Googling Clodagh Wright Ceylon I had found a page on WikiTree (now changed) where there was Frederick Keun as her husband, so the Clodagh Keun runner-up in 1955 was the same Clodagh Wright that won previously.

But sometimes it happened that old newspapers write Mrs instead of Miss and vice versa, so is possible that Miss (not Mrs) Clodagh Wright won in 1932 ‘33 being Wright her maiden name.

Today I have written to the profile manager of her entry on WikiTree, that has confirmed that Shelton was not her maiden name (as at first I thought).

Therefore I have now doubt about her possible marriage with a Mr Wright.

[/QUOTE]

Re your comment on Barbi's website it would be fantastic. For researching former players it was easier in the days i.e the 1980's and early 90's when the WTA media guide included players outside the top 100. Nowadays with a combined media guide with the ATP anybody outside the top 100 is not likely to be included.
