New entry

Huchez, Yvonne
France
Born 19 May 1904
Died circa 1983

Married Charles Budin in 1927

Active circa 1922-28. Yvonne Huchez was the daughter of Raoul Huchez and Lucie Huchez (née Michon). Yvonne was the sister of fellow lawn tennis player L. Huchez, whose first name might well have been Lucie, like their mother's.

There is an entry on Yvonne Huchez and her family in the website geneanet.org, but it does not mention her sister. However, the early French publication 'Tennis et Golf' mentions 'les soeurs Y. and L. Huchez' at least once in the 1920s. Here is a link to the aforementioned entry in geneanet.org: http://gw.geneanet.org/fabien283?n=huchez&oc=&p=yvonne

Born 31 August 1888
Died

Married Carl Walther Bruns on 17 December 1909 in Hamburg

Active circa 1905-14. Popularly known as Melanie. This player's maiden name appears to have been Achenbach, not Aschenbach. She is sometimes listed as Frau Dr Bruns, an indication that she had obtained a doctorate of some sort.
