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

Rollo, I've modified your templates a bit. I like your idea of using linear text, of course with women who married more than just once we cannot avoid filling a few verses. But I think we shouldn't cut existing info, otherwise a person who posts or edits results of tournaments will still need to visit additional places to identify a player.

I suggest to separate things using square brackets, the things below look quite tidy to me now , more like Encyclopedia entries - I chose some married players as my examples, and there's DD who hasn't been married yet, I also added another woman for whom we don't have too much info - in this way we can indicate that such a person existed, played competitive tennis and that we need more details about her.
