Re: 1968 results

Does anyone have any idea why the official WTA Tour guide lists Bloemfontein as one of Virginia Wade's 55 open era titles, when according to this list it took place long before the first officially open tournament at Bournemouth?

Hi Jakebfletch

Without being able to get into the minds of those who put the guides together I can only hazard the guess that they simply took the year 1968 as the start of the Open era rather than the week itself.

Thank you Rollo for replying! I guess you're right, but it's not a problem unique to just this instance. There seems to be lots of incorrect and dubious stats in the WTA guides, which is obviously disappointing. Thank you though for such a thorough list; at least yours makes sense.
