Re: The Italian Open Championships


Top-seeded defending champion Virgina Wade was the only big name in the draw but went out to Schildeknechkt-Orth 6-2 6-3 in the last 16. Third-seeded American Linda Tuero beat second-seeded Masthoff 7-5 0-6 6-2 in the semis and unseeded Olga Morozova in the final. This win is the highlight of Tuero's career. Her style could be classified as "human backboard"-rarely missing a shot.

Tuero's off court claim to fame was marrying author William Peter Blatty, author of The Exorcist
