That had to be one of the most staisfying wins in Court's career. Though young, Evert was thrashing everyone else on clay at that time. Margareat may have not been the most graceful player, but as I remember in the 73 USO final, she had great anticipation and speed so getting to the ball seemed almost effortless. After she lost the second set the crowd went wild rooting for Evonne but you could almost see Margaret grit her teeth and say enjoy it while you can because I am winning the next set, which she did.
