After louloubelle pointed out Court probably had a lot of singles titles I'm trying to track down all the results form the 60s. I'll have 1964 done soon.
In the meantime I found a GREAT article and controversy from the 1964 Italian. Two matches had great drama.
#1 Lea Pericoli (Italian cutey) vs Karen Susman (USA-1961 Wimbledon champ)
Susman had a rep for stalling between points. The Italians had a rep among foreigners for, shall we say, creative line calling. Some Italian players actually overruled their own umpires when they felt the umps were too patriotic! Remember that in reading what follows fronm World Tennis-
It's second round match with Pericoli leading 6-4 0-6 4-3 when THE INCIDENT happened. Susman protested when she felt a ball was out that Pericoli hit. The ump gave Lea the point. "Karen told Lea she was cheat. lea told Karen she was playing the way the balls were called, whether good or bad. Karen replied that she had heard of this sort of thing in Italy. The match continued. Again Karen called Lea a cheat. This time Lea replied in Italian (If we could only get THAT quote!). Pericoli finally won 7-5 after Susman missed an easy ball on match point.
The match created such a controversy that Karen's husband Rod wrote the magazine-saying Karen never called Lea a cheat, calling the reporting biased, and claiming Pericoli pretended not to understand English when Susman appealed to her to overule the cheating ref.
Pericoli THEN wrote a reply to Rod.'s letter in which she stated Karen DID call her a cheater. According to Lea Karen said during a changover after winning the game containing the disputed point. "Bad luck, it does not pay to cheat, see?"
Don'r ya love a good catfight?
I leave the last word on this match to Ted Tinling, who wrote of it in "Love and Faults".
Karen Susman playing Lea Pericoli in Rome with 2,000 Romans cheering Lea's every shot. Karen questioning the 4th ghastly line call given against her. "I always play to the umpire's decision", said Lea with an angleic smile. "Have you no eyes, no conscience?, said Karen. Lea won the match
