In an era when young girls were not encouraged to compete at sports, Roberta won the City of Alameda Park and Rec Tennis Championships during her last three years at Notre Dame Academy. WIlson Sporting Goods offered to sponsor her for the amateur circuit but she declined because of her parents’ fears about a young woman traveling alone. Roberta has since dedicated herself to teaching tennis and has managed several tennis clubs in Northern California.
