1925 Wimbledon[edit]

The Grand Slam record grid is slightly incorrect. Lance toured the world with an Australian team in 1925 and reached the third round of Wimbledon. Many internet pages incorrectly attribute this performances to American player Anna Harper. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.129.22.158 (talk) 05:49, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, but what's your source? This source says it was Anna Harper. Tennis expert (talk) 10:12, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Hey there - these pages contradict that one and provide more evidence - http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=9467081&postcount=369 and http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=10332852&postcount=3 - Daphne Akhurst and Sylvia Harper played doubles all year - as they did at Wimbledon.

And the refs that I've added from the actual era, not recent reproductions, show that it was Sylvia, not Anna.The-Pope (talk) 15:03, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Name[edit]

I notice that quite a few of the "famous both before and after marriage" tennis players have their pages located at a combination of the maiden and married name, almost as if they became hyphenated. Is this a neologism? None of the references of the day that I've found in Trove show that she was ever called Sylvia Lance Harper. She was Sylvia Lance until she got married and Syvlia Harper after it (or more accurately, Miss S. Lance before and Mrs R. R. Harper after!) I see that you have redirects in place from the other names, but I think WP:COMMONNAME suggests that this page should be at either the maiden or married name, not a made-up conjunction of the two.
