Can anybody help me with stats/match results or articles for Rita and Tami Agassi? Andre's sisters?

I know that Rita was a rather well respected junior champ out of Nevada (coached by Pancho Gonzalez after her early teens) in the 70's, and had a pro career briefly in the WTA.

Tami played for UNLV, Tyler Jr College in Texas, and also Texas AM. Since she's one year older than Andre, that would have been in the mid 80's. Any match stats or articles would be appreciated.

Also, which specific year/s did Tami train at Bolletteri?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Thanks so much Raquel.

I seems that Dana Gilbert is Brad's sister. Interesting that they had the "Gilbert" connection so many years ago.

Laurie Rowley is Chris Evert's best friend growing up.

I had expected that Rita played more on the tour. I'm still also looking for her junior results, as I've read a couple of comments that Rita was one of the finest juniors ever produced out of Nevada (and no, it wasn't "just" Mike Agassi who said it! LOL).

Rita was a fine junior. But that doesn't always translate into the pros.

As for Rita's pro results, she played mostly on the Avon Futures Circuit level. If she cracked the top 100, it would have only been for a brief time.

Dana Gilbert is Brad's older sister.

Do you know what years specifically? I'll go through some mags 1978 to maybe 1981 when I have a chance to see if they have any Avon Futures results including Rita.
