Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

MARTIN, "LOUISA" (Mary Louisa Martin)
Ireland
Born 3 September 1865 in Newtowngore, County Leitrim, Ireland
Died 24 October 1941 in Portrush, Northern Ireland
Other possible nicknames: "Louise" or "Molly"
Active 1885-1908

Went by Louisa, yet other secondary sources name her “Louise” (Allan Little) or even “Molly”, so she possibly went by one or more nicknames. When she played tennis she was listed as Miss Martin, or at most Miss L Martin.

A record 9 time winner of the Irish Championships. She also made 3 finals and 3 semifinals and was never less than a semifinalist. She won 4 consecutive years, 5 consecutive years she entered, and had an unbeaten streak of 18 matches from 1889 until her defeat in the 1898 final by Charlotte Sterry.

Louisa’s amazing record the Irish Championships (compiled from Mark's thread, see link below)
Matches won and lost in singles: 37-5 (.880 winning percentage)
SF: 1887, 1901, and 1908
FI: 1885-1886, 1908
Won 1889-1892, 1896, 1900, 1902-1903.

Her match record at the Irish Championships, compiled by Mark Ryan,may be found at:

Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

POPP, "TONI" (nee Antonie Kusenberg)
Germany
Born 22 January 1871 in Dusseldorf
Died
Married Eugen Franz Maria Popp (b. 12 July 1865 in Regensburg, Germany-), circa 1888

Finalist: 1897-Berlin (losing to sister); 1903- Heiligendamm, defaulting to her sister.

Antonie Kusenberg was the older sister of Clara Kusenberg, later almost always known as Countess Clara von der Schulenburg. Antonie did not play in many tournaments, one of her most notable achievements being an appearance in the final match at the Championships of Berlin tournament in 1897, where she lost to her sister.

Antonie Kusenberg (Popp) and her husband had one child, a boy called Alfred Eugen Franz Popp (21 April 1891-24 May 1963). Accordng to one source, Alfred was born in Salisbury, Rhodesia.

Note per LKK that her sister Clara von der Schulenburg may have employed her sister's name "Mme Popp" as an alias on the French Riviera.

She is the “Mme Popp” in the 1901 Wimbledon draw.

For Clara see: http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....postcount=1734

Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

VON ENDE-PFLÜGNER, MARIA "Marga" (Baroness Maria Von Ende-Pfluger)
Germany
Active 1930s

Winner: 1931- Hannover; 1932- Free City of Gdansk Champs.

Finalist: 1932- Bad Pyrmont; 1933- Heiligendamm

German junior champion in 1931. An article from 1931 lists her as "Marga".

3R of Wimbledon in 1933.

Ranked #7-11 in Germany in 1934. She is listed as Fraulein M von Ende-Pfugner in Lowe's Annual. This double-barrelled surname is quite confusing, and has sometimes led to assumptions that she was married.

An article from 1931 calls her “Freiin”, this term "Freiin" means: "unmarried daughter of a baron" So she is called "Baroness von Ende-Pflugner".

Harriet's husband might have died early as she was playing tennis under her maiden name in the late 1880s. She was active as a lawn tennis player in the late 1880s-early 1890s.

Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

WINSLOW, BARBARA
United States
Born 12 December 1919 in Germantown, Pennsylvania
Died 09 May 1942 in Monterey, California
Active 1936-1939

Tournaments Won
1938-East Hampton

Competed at the US Championships in 1936 (default), 1937: 2R (won 1 match) and 1938: 3R (won two matches)

Ranked #11 in the US in 1937, rising rapidly to #4 in 1938.

Born in Pennsylvania, she grew up and resided in Hollywood, Californai. First went east to compete in the US Girls' championships in 1936; she won it in 1937, defeating Hope Knowles in the final 9-7 7-9 6-1. In 1938 she won the important Forest Hills tuneup at East Hampton. Ill since 1937, she only played sporadically after the onset of her malady.

According to Pauline Betz her early death robbed tennis of a potential superstar. Betz believed she could have as good as any of the "Amazons" of the 1940's such as herself, Brough, or DuPont. While the Times does not cite her disease, according to Pauline she died of Amoebic Dysentery.

There is a photo of Barbara in Life Magazine in the July 25, 1938 issue.

Sources:

"Barbara Winslow, Tennis Star, Dead", in the New York Times, 10 May 1942 page 42.
Personal interview with Pauline Betz, August 2004.

In first pic she is on left, with Hope Knowles at right (the 1937 US Girls final)
The second pic is from Life magazine in 1938.

Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

MORGAN, ANNE
United States
Born in 1921-
Active in the 1930's.

A left-handed tennis player from Berkeley, California, the Washington State champion in 1936; often described as another product of W.C. "Pop" Fuller (the coach who helped both great Helens: Wills & Jacobs at the beginning of their careers); although she won many junior events and a few minor senior tournaments, mostly in her native state, never reached the level of her magnificent predecessors.

"She is the best tennis player at fourteen who ever delighted the soul of a coach. The first time I saw Anne, I picked her for a coming champion. She is playing better tennis at 14 than either of the two famous Helens played at that age. She has a fine all-round game, with an excellent back-hand stroke, which is very rare in a left-handed girl. She has fine natural coordination, good eyesight, is strong, muscular, speedy and patient." (W.C. Fuller, a tennis coach with 25 years of experience, in Lodi News-Sentinel - July 12, 1935, page 6)
