Hi,

According to this result:

Adrianna Diaz-Gonzalez (2499)78942
Zhang, Lily
 (
2641
)
31126US Women's Singles SE-Finals-9,7,8,730

Adrianna Diaz has a new name.  Is this a result of marriage or the custom of adding the mother's last name to your maiden name in some cultures?

Thanks.

Mother's maiden name: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adriana_D%C3%ADaz_(table_tennis)

In this Spanish name, the first or paternal surname is Díaz and the second or maternal family name is González.

For Félix Auger-Aliassime, it's the opposite, mother's name 1st.

Let me confuse you all some more. 

Is the 4th sister Gabriela's (married) name Centeno (rating 2042) or is this someoen else ?

           Name                               ID               State                        Rating 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Adriana Díaz-Gonzalez         78942 Utuado, PR         2531
Melanie Díaz-Gonzalez         78943 San Juan, PR         2305
Andrea Fabiola Diaz-Gonzalez 223517 not entered, FN         2294

Reminds me of 4 Maleeva sisters in tennis  


Actually I like this Spanish method of including materal last name Just using paternal seems kind of sexist.

Thinking along the same lines of diversity & inclusion, all players should be required to have some sort of pips one side & smooth rubber (spinny or anti) on other side of their rackets (Penholders & American grip players must use one side about 30% of the time)  HA HA just joking
