Hi,

I have a twin sister, and I've just thought of a curious question. Let's see if someone can answer it.

I know there are twin brothers in the tour (Bryan twins, the Spaniards Fernando and JM Vicente...), but what about the girls? Are there twin sisters in the tour (that both play or one doesn't play tennis)? I know there are two young Spaniards that are twins, but no idea in the professional tour.

Thanks!

Sorry if someone has already asked this before!

Well in the past there were the Whitlinger sisters with Tami being the one who had moderate success.

There were also the O'Reilly triplets. Sadly, one of the O'Reilly girls was killed in an auto accident several years ago. They all played sporadic pro matches but never made a dent on tour.

Yes, propi, I had heard of them, that's why I said I knew there were two young Spaniards that are twins ;)

Anna Maria Fernandez (ranked in top 20 in 1979) and her twin sister Lucia both played on the tour. Their older sisters, Cecilia & Elisa, were also twins and played tennis but I don't believe they had professional careers. That was just Anna Maria & Lucia, and Anna Maria was easily the most successful. They were childhood friends of Tracy Austin's.

Cecilia Fernandez did have a brief pro career and I don't think Anna Lucia did Zummi. Cecilia eventually became a tennis coach for a SoCalif Community College but just can think of which one it was at the moment.
