Temps dipped down to 40 F with 23 mph winds! Knode had 2 mps in the fianl at 5-4 but couldn't hold serve. Service was broken 13 times in the 31 game matc, including the game Shirley won to take the title. Knode's steady play garnered the first set on Fry errors. In the end though Fry's speed (fastest in women's tennis) overcame defense, as she hit overhead winners off lobs to overpower Dottie. Several hudred saw the final, wich entertained the crowd much more than the men's final.
