Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

ALVAREZ, “LILI” de (Elia Maria González-Álvarez y López-Chicheri)
Spain
Born 9 May 1905 at the Hotel Flora in Rome, Italy
Died 8 July 1998 in Madrid, Spain.
Married Comte Jean de Gaillard de la Valdène, on 14 November 1935 in Madrid (separated from 1939 on death of only child)

Author of Modern Lawn Tennis (1927) and Plenitud (Fullness) in 1946.

At an early age Lili was a skating star, taking up tennis as a second sport.

Many tapped her to be another Lenglen. Lili never reached those heights; her Lenglen-like flair was never wed to consistency. Nonetheless Lili was proved to be Spain’s greatest player until Arantxa Sanchez and a star of the first magnitude.

Lili started tournament play as early as 1923.
Her grand slam career spanned from 1925 (when she lost in the 1R of the French) to 1937.

Aussie: Never played
French: 4 SF (1930-31, 1936-37) and 1 QF in 1927.
Wimbledon: 3 finals (1926-28)

Won French doubles in 1929 with Kea Bouman.

World ranked #2 in 1927 and 1928.

Alverez sparkled in reaching 3 consecutive Wimbledon finals. She was famous for her daring half-volleys, often hit from the baseline. Lili also created a fashion buzz in 1931 by wearing the first divided skirt in tennis designed by Elsa Schiaparelli.

From 1934 to 1937 she played as the Countess Valdene. When their only child died in 1939 the couple separted. Lili moved back to Spain in 1941 and became a writer. Her writings demonstrated her commitment to feminism and Catholicism.

Alvarez oozed flair and panache
