Ilana Kloss is still playing exhibitions, as she was just here in my home town last year (April 2003) with Chris Evert, Jeanne Evert, and Wendy Turnbull. She's in terrific shape, and hitting those volleys as well as ever.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Elise Burgin does commentary for Sky TV in the UK during the US Open. She has done it for quite a few years now and she is good

Some of these women were way back Goofy! Try the New York Times database if you near a college-as many of these women were in the northeast US.


Angela Buxton-lives in the Miami Florida area. You can read a lot about in the book "The Match:Althea Gibson and Angela Buxton", by Bruce Schoenfeld.

If you "google" Burgin you should find out what she's doing now.

Carrie Heldman is probably Julie's sister, so I'd try to contact Julie Heldman.


I never heard of Carolyn Hirsch-but I assume she is the sister of Millicent (Hirsch) Lang, a pretty good player of the 1930s and 1940s.


Best of luck and do share anything interesting that you find.

In addition to exhibitions, Illana Kloss also is commissioner of World Team Tennis.

At one point, Andrea Leand was writing for Tennis Week magazine, but I have not seen any stories by her in quite sometime.

She's been caught up in the run of the Mill.

Sad to say but wasn't Andrea Leand killed in a shooting incident some years ago in California?

It was Andrea Buchanan who was killed in a tragic shooting incident in the early 80's.

Andrea Leand is now a fairly well-know tennis journalist. She has written some great articles and, unlike most ex-players, is not afriad totackle controversial issues.
