She is sometimes listed as Angela. Perhaps it was a nickname? The overwhelming majority of sources list her as Alice though-including Wimbledon historians Alan Little and John Barrett. For those reasons I'm going with Alice until we have solid evidence she preferred Angela.

1912 indoor "Sofia" Castenschiold.
Thanks Chalres. I'm going with Sofie, the Germanic/Nordic variant for Sofia.

I'll post the complete draw soon.

Thanks :)

I noticed yesterday that her initials were listed as A. N. G. Greene, so it's possible that somehow this got misinterpreted to Angela. I think it's probably safest to go with Alice, unless we get something definitive to the ccntrary.
