With three US national top tenners in the draw, there is a strong American presence in the quarter finals although Chris Evert, in Australia for the Bonne Bell Cup and Australian Opens, does not enter. Evonne, suffering from severely blistered feet, is unexpectedly downed by former top tenner and New South Wales native Karen Krantzcke..
