    Amendment June 2011:
    A user wrote in to say that of the two blonde women players seen at the beginning of the film and warming up at the end, the one with the shorter hair is US Wightman Cup and US Nationals Champion, Darlene Hard. Her opponent is Jacqueline Shilcock (a US Wightman Cup player from the mid-50s but also a Wimbledon Ladies Doubles champion with Angela Mortimer in 1955). The dark haired woman in the next segment is Maria Buena, the Brazilian Wimbledon Champion. The man getting out of the car is French Davis Cup winner Pierre Darmon, with (possibly) his wife Rosie Reyes.
