Alex,

This site is a really wonderful initiative. Congratulations on achieving this much already in such a short time. Of course it doesn't stand alone, there are/have been other fantastic endeavours by others to compile results extracted from the treasure trove that is tennis history. But your work here, in creating one single database which one day could perhaps contain just about every result one would like to know, is to some a dream come true.

I don't know to which extent this is the case with other sports, but to me tennis seems to be a game that instills a deep passion and interest for its history in those that follow it, whether they play it themselves or not. As you know you can rely on what assistance I can give. Hopefully many others will too.

Wishing you much help & success!

Hi Alex,
Joshua Pim is my 4th cousins 5 times removed.  I have read wonderful articles about him and have enjoyed the photos found here.  It was so exciting to learn more about him.
I wrote an article for TheWildGeese.com about him and another cousin.  We would like to have your permission to use the oval photo of Josh in the article with a link to your site.  Is that something you would consider?
Are you still looking for information on Neville Durlacher?  I filled out a ticket about him.  I hope that helps you.
thanks tons,

Wonderful site! A wealth of old draws, which I like to browse.

Some thoughts about East London 1966 draw:

Gray, P. – ITF has Gray, Peter in their database – South African, born 1948-09-10.
Rees , Colin – has extra space after the last name. A typo, I guess.
Rudman, G.J. – this is tricky. ITF has two different Rudmans – George and “J”, fitting in this time period. “J” appears in Johannesburg draw in 1969, George (born 1949-09-03) – in 1972-1981.
Shaun and Kyle, born in 1978,79 are probably sons of one of them. But I think that “J” and “George” is the same person. “G.J” kind of makes you think in this direction.
Schroder, Derek W. – there is no DOB in your database. And you list him as South African. ITF has him born 4-26-1940 and they consider him Australian.
With Bob Hewitt it is visa versa. You have him as Australian, while them – as South African. But it is a well established fact, that he was born in Australia but didn’t make DC team and followed the money to SA.
You don’t have DOB for Albert Gaertner. ITF has him born 1939-09-03.

Newport Beach 1969. Cornell, Steve DOB - 5-26-1949. Kreiss, Mike DOB - 12-22-1951. You have “Van Linge, Jerry” and “Van Linge, Gerald” as two different players. Are you sure they are not the same person?

Golden Gate classic 1968. Shepard, Greg is most likely Shephard, Greg - DOB 9-13-1947

Something is wrong with Hoylake 1968 draw. Maybe there was Round 4 in between Round 3 and quarters? Parun, Clifton and Howe won their R3 matches, but did not participate in quarterfinals.


Its how it was recorded in World tennis, maybe some digging in archives and newspapers will eventually get this right.
