[Lkk--note we need to change entry to "Trude" (and not "Trudi")]

Mark's article gives some clues as to her maiden name.

Trude was married by 1933, when she ranked #3 in Austria as Frau Wolf. The article below indicates she was ranked Austria in 1931, but does not indicate her ranking. Thus she could be Fraulein Ridlich, Deanino, or Grave-all ladies in the 1931 ranking.

as of right now we don't have the 1932 Austrian rankings, which would really help us out I suspect!

Can we track down her maiden name?

Quote:
If Wolf was Trude's married name, I don't think any of your suggestions as to her maiden name are correct.

Here are some more Austrian players of the same period:

Irene Deanino
Herta Grave
Erna Redlich
Mädi Redlich
Thanks Mark.

I was assuming she was a Mrs (Frau) as your translation rendered her a Frau rather than Fraulein. Yet the article doesn't specifically mention a husband. Could something have gotten lost in translation-or the Frau be non-specific?

I have also discoved her name was Wolf as early as 1930.

1930-played Wimbledon as "Trudi" Wolf.
1931-ranked #5 in Austria as Miss Trude Wolf.
1932-ranked #3 in Austria as Miss Trude Wolf.

Thoughts? Should I list her merely as Trude Wolf (with no husband) til we get more information.

I don't have any idea if she was a player, too. The Blast Encyclopedia inherited some names and details from the Married Names thread, I guess you should look for her "roots" there.

In Czechoslovakian sources Frau Müller-Hein was always listed as Heinova-Müllerova, and before her marriage she had been known as Heinova(or Hejnova). I've never found her first name, but "Mini" sounds just like a nickname to me... Before she officially became a German citizen, she had been described as a "German player" from Karlove Vary (Karlsbad) - she was a Czechoslovakian by place of birth, but came from the German minority living there.

It may be difficult to find Trude Wolf's maiden name, because according to the article posted recently by Newmark she was not ranked before 1931. I think it's also quite possible that her maiden name was "Wolf", but she got divorced early in her life and that's why was listed in tennis results as "Frau"... just like for example Helena Straubeova.
