Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

GALLAY, ABEILLE (nee Abeille Jacqueline Villard)
France
Born 09 September 1879 in Paris
Died 08 February 1951 in Paris
Married Robert Gaston Maurice Gallay (1878-1954) on 19 October 1901 Children: Violette (1902) Jacqueline (1903) Claude (1906-1995) and Michel (1912-1996)
Nickname: "The Queen Bee"
[Active 1909-1910]

This is the Mme Galley of the 1900-1910 era. Abeille was a rather stout women with a big hat, nicknamed “The Queen Bee” (“abeille” means “bee” in French). She was apparently playing in between having her children. Her sister Thérèse won the women's singles event at the 1906 French Nationals as the Comtesse de Kermel. Abeille was runner-up in the women’s singles event at the French National Championships in 1909.

In 1910 she gave Margueirite Broquedis quite a tussle at the French Nationals.

Her daughters Jacquleine and Violette were both later tennis players of note.

In 1913, Robert Gallay was a founding member of the International Tennis Federation and its secretary general from that year until 1949. He was also, variously, vice-president of the French Tennis Federation, vice-president of the Union des sociétés françaises de sports athlétiques (a French sports federation) and vice-president of both the Stade Français stadium and the Tennis Club de Paris. Robert Gallay was also a chair umpire and notably umpired the Davis Cup Challenge Round of 1928 at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris between the defending champions, France, and the USA.

Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

INOUE, ETSUKO (井上悦子 in Japanese)
Japan
Born 18 October 1964 in Tokyo
Married Kejiro Kaneshiro in 1993
Height: 1.64m
[Active: 1982-1990]

1987 Aussie doubles semifinalist.

Japanese #1 through much of the early 1980s. She represented Japan in Fed Cup every year from 1982 to 1989.

Her highest ranking (at #26) was achieved on 14 March 1988. At the tme this was the highest ever ranking for a Japanese female.

One of Japan's "3 daughters" with Emiko Okakawa and Kumiko Okamoto, it was Inoue who went out on the international tour first and had the most success. She dropped out of high school two years early to pursue pro tennis. While not unusual in the West, in a culture like Japan that emphasized education her decision was both risky and notable at the same time.

By 1983 her ranking was high enough to get her into the main draw of most WTA events, including slams. Her grand slam highlight came in 1987, when Inoue made the Australain Open doubles semis with Patricia Hy.

After retirement Etsuko got married and completed college. Her 8 consecutive years in the top 100 are a testament to her consistency. Inoue took the torch of Japanese women' tennis and handed it over to Kimiko Date, who of course took ladies tennis in Japan to new heights.



WTA YEAR-End Ranking

1983: #81
1984: #68
1985: #98
1986: #81
1987: #29
1988: #51
1989: #68
1990: #71

Re: Biographies of Female Tennis Players

GALTIER, MAUD (nee Maud Mottez)
France
Born 21 April 1913
Died 07 April 2014
Married Adrien Galtier circa early 1940s-1943 at the latest.
[Active 1947-1968]

Son Alain and daughters Brigitte (Lanternier). Solange (de Kerjégu), and Francine (b 1944). As Francine may not have been her eldest child she may probably married well before 1944. Solange was active in tennis in 1958, supporting an earlier marriage date.

A baseliner, she served underhanded. In later years mother and daughter Solange competed at Roland Garros in the same year. Long-lived, passing away when she was on the eve of turning 101.

Maud competed in singles at Roland Garros for 17 consecutive years from 1949 to 1966. In 1968 she limited herself to doubles events only.

Her French highlight came 1954 when she reached the doubles final with Suzanne Schmitt, falling to Maureen Connolly and Nell Hopman 7-5 4-6 6-0

Titles: Won at least 7 events--the first at Verviers in 1952 and the last at Paris in 1958.

She died on the eve of her 101st birthday and is buried in Saint-Jean-de-Luz cemetary in Paris. Note that the tennis Club de Paris runs an obit condolence dated 03 April 2014. Could this (and not April 07) be her date of death?
