Title should be French Open Ladies' Singles Champions (all other tennis categories are in this format).

  • Helen Wills won in 1928 and 1929 as Helen Wills. Then in 1930 and 1932 as Helen Wills-Moody. 
  • Margaret Smith won in 1962 and 1964 with her maiden name, then in 1969, 1970, and 1973 as Margaret Court.

It doesn't matter to me if the names are changed, I just think that it needs to be set so that both names don't show up together. JMK (thank you) already took care of the big issues I had in this category, Justine Henin & Chris Evert (multiple marriages and name changes each, very confusing - sometimes 3 versions of Evert would show up as answer options).

Thank you guys for being great and I'm sure you'll know how to deal with this. Let me know if it is easier for me to add the other tennis categories to this discussion or start new topics for them. 

Think the rest of this category is pretty clean now :).

I think for the others we went with their current name and then put the name they used when they won into the extra info. I will leave this for one of the new editors to do.
Just put them here if you have more tennis ones.

So JMK knew I was hanging out...I have rather randomly changed all of Helen to Wills, and all of Margaret to Court, beause these are the names that I think of them by and added extra info. BB, please check, as I'm new to this game (and to tennis).

Honestly... I'm just petty and hate getting them wrong by picking their wrong last name (LOL).  So anything that eliminates that possibility makes me happy. 

Thanks guys :)

It's not petty, we don't want anybody getting annoyed, or team-mates losing points, or people thinking the site isn't up to much.

Petty is, when, yesterday, I used my new editing tools to alter the space between a word and a comma....
