Like I say, she couldn't have entered the French until 1965 at the earliest due to college finals-and in 1965 and 1966 she was in Europe and on grass the same week as the French at Surbiton.
Actually, BJK was in Tulsa, Oklahoma playing a clay court tournament when the French Championships was going on in 1966.
