Re: BHW #1: Althea Gibson (and project intro)

Actually, Althea Gibson did not withdraw before her 1973 US Open qualifying match. She played me (Marcy O'Keefe). A group of spectators watched the match. I was winning 4-0 when Althea approached the net and told me she was stopping.
So the score actually was 4-0 retired. I went on to beat Lindsey Beaven of England in the first round of the Open and then lost to Llana Kloss of South Africa who lost to Margaret Court - I believe Margaret Court wond the tournmanet that year.
