Re: 1975 French Open Final - Evert d. Navratilova
Rollo, I'm fairly certain it was NBC, because both Bud Collins and, I think, Judy Collins, were commentating. Moreover, where I grew up, we could only get an NBC station and a CBS station (good at night; sometimes sketchy during the daylight hours!). This memory was well before 1978. We could also get PBS, but the first PBS tournaments I remember occurred the year that Jeff Borowiack won the CAnadian Open, which I can't recall -- possibly 1977 when Guillermo Vilas was on his roll and seemed to be a permanent fixture on the TV screen.
