HOLLADAY, "TERRY" (Anne Therese Holladay)
United States
Born 28 November 1955 in Charlotte, north Carolina
Married (1) Steve T. Waszak (b. 14 June 1960 San Diego) 26 September 1982 in San Diego, divorced 1985*
Married (2) Philip Arthur Higginbottom (1947-2009)
[Active in the late 70s and 1980s]

Tour player in the 70s/80s, Holladay was ranked #10 for the year 1976 in World Tennis. She was often ranked in the top 20 in the late 70s. She had one 4R appearance at the US Open and two 4R showings at Wimbledon in her career.

1976 was her best year. She had three semifinal appearances on winter VS circuit where she lost a 3-setter to Evert at Detroit and defeated Navratilova in her run at San Francisco. She also qualified for the inaugural Colgate Series Championship (the richest women's tennis event to date), and navigated through an upset-filled draw to reach the semifinals where she lost to Francoise Durr.

In 1977, she reached the finals of the VS of Dallas, where she lost to Sue Barker, and Tokyo in 1980 where she defeated Wendy Turnbull before losing to Billie Jean King. She won a minor tournament, the Pacific Coast Indoors, in 1977 over Mona Schallau Guerrant.

Perhaps Terry's most famous accomplishment in the tennis world was the Terry Holladay Rule, the WTA's maternity leave policy. In 1982, Holladay gave birth to her daughter Tasha. In 1983, the WTA gave her special entry into six tournaments so she could earn a computer ranking. The maternity leave policy that developed from this was named after Holladay.

Terry divorced her husband around 1985, but this date is not exact or certain as he is mentioned in the 1986 and 1987 WTA Media Guides

In the obituary of her husband Philip Higginbottom in Legacy.com | Where Life Stories Live On he is survived by his wife Terry Holladay and his step children Tasha Holladay, Louis Holladay and Maggie-Waggie Foster.

HOLMSTROM, "ANNIE" (Anna Sofia Holmstrom)
Sweden
Born 22 February 1880 in Jönköping
Died 26 October 1953 in Bankeryd

She played tennis with her older sister Ellen Brusewitz for Jönköping LTK formed in 1903. Her sister moved to Stockholm and represented KLTK in the 1912 Olympics in the outdoor event. Annie represented the KLTK in both the indoor and outdoor events at the 1912 Olympics even though she never moved to Stockholm. Perhaps it was a temporary membership to prepare for the Olympics, or possiby sje spent enough time in the capital to warrant membership in two clubs.
