Birth: Aug. 6, 1919
Death: May 31, 2011

NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Tennis Hall of Famer Pauline Betz Addie has died at 91. She was the top women's player in the United States in the 1940s. The International Tennis Hall of Fame said Thursday that Addie died Tuesday at an assisted-living facility in Potomac, Md. She had suffered from Parkinson's disease. She reached the finals of the U.S. National Championship (now the U.S. Open) every year from 1941-46, winning the title four times. In 1946, she won the Wimbledon singles championship without losing a set in the entire tournament. Originally from Dayton, Ohio, she was raised in Los Angeles and introduced to the sport as a child by her mother, a physical education teacher. Addie was a longtime teaching professional in the Washington, D.C., area.
