I remember Kerry Melville Reid very well. In addition to that wonderful inside-out, sidespin forehand, she had probably the best drop shot in the women's game. It's true that she gave Chris some trouble early in her career, but I believe that U.S. Open semifinal was her last victory over Chris. From that point forward, Chris really dominated her. Note, too, that Kerry frustrated Tracy Austin very early in her career, too. Kerry played solid tennis, but tended to fold when the pressure was too great and she had a real opportunity sitting on her racket. She just never seemed to be able to back up her big wins with another solid result. For example, she beat Martina N at the Family Circle Cup on year, only to lose for the first time, albeit in two tiebreaks, to Tracy Austin, who had never previously won a set from her. Likewise, she fell apart against a comebacking Billi Jean King in the 1977 Family Circle Cup, losing rather tamely in a match that she should have won in straight sets. In general, though, the FCC was a good tournament for Kerry, as she reached three finals there. Her biggest moment came when she won the Australian Open in 1977, beating Diane Fromholtz in the final. That was one time when Kerry held her nerve. I think she also won the Wimbledon doubles with Wendy Turnbull in the 1970s. She retired in either 1979 or 1980, at the end of the season. I believe she actually defaulted her last match in the round-robin portion of the season-ending championships. She did play a couple of Family Circle Cups (she lives/lived on Hilton Head) and even won a round or two in her "old age."
