Re: Testing an Idea for an Encyclopedia of Female Tennis Players

Going off of LKK's idea of having more info up front than my example:


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

AKHURST, DAPHNE (Aus) [1903-1933] Mrs Cozens from Feb 1930. Active 1920s-30s.

CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC

Cozens, Mrs Royston (from Feb 1930) SEE AKHURST, DAPHNE


DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

DESFOR, DIANE (US) [1955-] Active 1970-82.

Does one line make it look too messy? We should keep the initial entry down to as few lines as possible, since we would eventually have hundreds, if not thousands, of women.

Also, IMO a player should be listed under the name she is best known by, even if it is her married name.

Thus I would have


COURT, MARGARET (Aus) [1942-] nee Smith before Oct 1967. Active 1959-1977.


Smith, Margaret (Mrs Court from Oct 1967) SEE COURT, MARGARET
