Need Top 8 seeds for 1975 Australian Open

Can anyone help? I am needing the Top 8 men's seeds for the 1975 Australian Open. Wikipedia doesn't list them, which is strange that this is in the only year they don't list the seeded players.

Can anyone please help?!

A million thanks!

I don't understand how Olga Morozova was seeded above Evonne, even if she was a finalist at Wimbledon the year before.

Re: Need Top 8 seeds for 1975 Australian Open

i find it weird that margaret was seeded number 1 quite frankly! did she even play at all in 1974, so i would think evonne who had a good 1974 should have been seeded number 1, morozova perhaps number 2 and margaret? not sure based on her ranking from 1973 and not much play in 1974 would her ranking from 2 years before this event still have enough "points" to give her a high seeding? no matter she (margaret) should not have been ranked number 1 that's for sure!

2. John NEWCOMBE (AUS)
3. Tony ROCHE (AUS)
4. John ALEXANDER (AUS)
5. Ross CASE (AUS)
6. Alex METREVELI (RUS)
7. Geoff MASTERS (AUS)
8. Phil DENT (AUS)
