Slam list for Encyclopedia

This is just my checklist to improve our Encyclopedia of Female players.

There are two lists

1. Contestants from the majors-starting with 1884 Wimbledon. This will be slow going but ultimately rewarding by being complete.

Australian--------- 1946-1950
French------------ 1887-1889, 1924, 1926, and 1946-1949
Wimbledon--------1884-1890 and 1946
US Open---------- 1890-1891 and 1896



2. Slam winners (do we have entries and are they up to snuff? See list in post two below).

Re: Slam list for Encyclopedia

I will give more attention to these two areas over the next couple of years.

Slowly but surely......

Re: Slam list for Encyclopedia

This is an ambitious undertaking. I have completed singles spreadsheets for the Grand Slams from 1946 onwards. I found 1,261 female players had played in the era 1946 to 1967 and 1,671 players from 1968 to 2014. There is some overlap with players who played before 1946 and players who overlapped the pre-open and open era. However it is easier to find dates of birth for anybody who played 1968 onwards. Additionally in the pre-open era you would get players who played in Grand Slams as 16 year olds and never played again. This was because they never took up a playing career. However it is a fascinating activity finding out about players of the past.

Re: Slam list for Encyclopedia

Hello Rosamund

Yes-ambitious indeed. Your numbers indicate the challenge ahead. It is fascinating though, as you say. And I can be very patient in building and maintaining with help-hopefully the yearly results demonstrate determination.

The other aspect is a sense of organization. The "scattershot" approach for biographies has netted us over 3,000 women, but the larger it grows the more I notice the gaps. It is charming to have the 1913 Utah Champion in our encyclopedia, but even better to ensure that all 8 quarter-finalists at the US Nationals have entries, and that prominent women be given larger space.

The other bonus is this will allow us to have complete (or as near complete as possible) results for the 4 majors-something that still eludes us.

Would you consider taking your spreadsheet and laying out one year we could work on together? Any year after 1946 would do. Working from both ends (184 and some other point) may get this thing off the ground.

I am open to other suggestions too.

The work load is daunting, but I like the payoff!

Re: Slam list for Encyclopedia

Hi Rollo

I have 2 spreadsheets covering 1946 to 1949(inclusive), one which shows names and round reached and the other matches won as sometimes there are walkovers that you wouldn't get these days. There are 384 players on the list of which 11 never actually played a match. They were compiled at the end of 2014 and they are not updated for info obtained in 2015. However for listings of names they are fine and you will find plenty are already included in the Blast encyclopedia. If you want me to e-mail them I will try. I'm off to watch the tennis at Eastbourne next week so can send beforehand if it helps.

Lets go for it Rosamund!

Please send them too [email protected]

Lets see if if we can get proper bios for 1946 through 1949 done in 4 or 5 months!

Do enjoy yourself at Eastbourne-I envy you! Devonshire Park in June, balmy seaside walks, and grass court tennis (not to mention all that history) make for a heady mix.

Please feel feel to share when you get back-and thanks again for all you do.
