Are you sure about the date of birth?
Or maybe it was the elder sister who played?
No, Kate Gillou was definitely 13 or 14 in 1900. I remember reading a short piece on her in one of the editions of "Lawn Tennis" from 1900, stating that she was something of a prodigy and predicting great things for her.
So she was obviously very young when she took part in the Olympics in 1900, if indeed she turned up to play. What results do you have for her from the Olympics in 1900?
