Re: Bio Test for LKK

ALVAREZ, JUDY
United States
Born 2 April 1943
Married Frederick “Fred” Campbell, circa 1964-1965 (by 22 August 1965) Divorced in October 1968 in Hillsborough County, Florida
Active: circa 1960-1966, 1970-71,1974

A Floridian who achieved success in the early 1960s, she felt discouraged and gave up tennis until the Slims circuit in the 1970s. Judy had her best win over Multiple slam winner Darlene Hard at the Dixie tournament in 1963.

[From the Judy Alvarez thread]

Quote:
For a first-round doubles match, Alvarez and partner Carol Caldwell were put on famed Centre Court, right after a Rod Laver singles match. Alvarez looked ready, as she walked back to the service line to begin the match. Except for one thing. She had left her racket at her chair.
"When it was obvious I didn't have my racket, you could hear all this mumbling,'' Alvarez said. "Anyway, I got my racket and as I walked back out, I held it up so everyone could see it. Everyone applauded. Carol and I lost, but the crowd was behind us the whole time.''
Quote:
For Alvarez, 1964 forever will be bittersweet. She beat fellow Americans Billie Jean King, Darlene Hard and Donna Fales, only to be left off the Wightman Cup squad. Crushed by what she considered a political and perhaps discriminatory decision - Cubans weren't exactly commonplace in tennis - Alvarez quit the tour. She was ranked No. 6 in the U.S. at the age of 21.
Declared a pro by the USTA on January 20, 1966. The reason cited was her paid position at Tampa Carrollwood Golf and Tennis Club. Judy was ranked #5 in the US in 1965. She was the RU in a St Petersburg event in 1970, more or less ending her career in 1971, though she shows up in 1974 in local Florida events.

In the late 1970s Alvarez dominated 35 and over events. Eventually she operated her own tennis academy in Tampa, which she later sold.
