Re: The Italian Open Championships


In a rain-drenched tournament which necessitated a late finish on the Monday, Chris Evert failed at the last hurdle to win a 6th Italian open title. On that final day, eventual champion Manuela Maleeva defeated in succession Ruzici 76 46 62 in a match that had spanned 4 days and Carling Bassett 62 62 before upsetting Evert 63 63. Evert, who had beaten Lisa Bonder 61 61 in the semi, was affected by the disrupted schedule and never got going in the final.
