Louise Pleming
 
Anyone know where she is and what she is doing now?

She used to be a pro tennis player back in the 1990's / early 2000. Always very friendly. Just wondered where she is and what she is up to.

Anyone have any memories of her?

She was a real beauty and attended Wimbledon Champions ball in 1994 as she was dating Conchita Martínez at the moment :)

She looks after the Junior Fed Cup and commentates every year at the Hopman Cup in Perth

I remember when Louise broke up with Conchita, the interview in the paper with Louise said that she'd helped Conchita win Wimbledon, but she was going to concentrate on her own career now.
I actually think she's one of the better comentators out there. Hell, anyone sounds great after listening to Lisa McShea's bogan drivel...

:lol: I didn't think Lisa McShea was that bad...I really don't like Roger Rasheed ... he has the need to fill every second with noise from his mouth :o ... he even makes Jim Courier look good. My fave is John Barrett, such a knowledgable chap :)

Roger Rasheed is awful. He's worse at commentating than what he was as a pro tennis player. He's as bad as Wally Masur. Why have two of the biggest male chauvenists commentating women's tennis?? :rolleyes:
I want to like Lisa. She's really bad though. At least no-one will be stupid enough to hire her next year.
As for John Barrett, hasn't he kicked the bucket yet!!? :tape:

John Alexander is much worse :tape:

Thanks for all your responses. However, can we get back on to the subject of Louise Pleming? We've kind of strayed onto other commentators.

Apart from her sexual side, anyone know of any links to interviews or articles on Louise Pleming? I can't seem to find anything on her on the internet. And anyone know how to get in touch with her?

I remember her from her playing days in England, in Eastbourne and Wimbledon and she was always a delight to watch, and when you spoke to her she was always so nice and friendly. I really miss her.

I used to watch her play doubles at Wimbledon with a Dutch girl, about the same size and similar in looks to Louise. She also wore a big headband - anyone know who I mean? On one doubles match at Wimbledon Louise served and smacked the ball right in the back of this girls head - the Dutch girl. This girl just collapsed on the floor and they had to bring the first aid in and everything. Poor Louise must have felt awful, as well as her partner she hit.

I think they then went on to lose the match, understandably. But I still think of those days at Wimbledon and I do miss her bubbly personality.

Anyway, keep all the info on Louise coming through.

OK, we're really testing the memory banks here, but I wanna say Ingelese Driehuis as her partner. I remember they played some Aussie $25's together in the mid 90's.....
