Re: The Italian Open Championships


Chris Evert, 19, beat 17-year-old Martina Navratilova 63 63. Chris had dropped two sets en route to the title match. She was pushed to 4-4 in the third set by Maria Neumannova in an early round and beat Morozova 61 16 60 in the semi final. Navratilova reached the final with a 46 76 76 victory over Masthoff in 2 hours 45 minutes. The final set tie-break score was 14-12 and Martina won on her 8th match point, Masthoff having had two of her own. In keeping with tradition, Wade lost her temper and her quarter-final against Pat Walkden-Pretorius because the umpire was talking to a baseline judge on another court between rallies. Her 5-1 first set lead vanished as she lost 57 36.
