Re: Thread 1975

1975 Australian Open, played in early January.

SEEDINGS:
Margaret Court[1] bye
Martina Navratilova(CZ)[8] bye
Helen Gourlay[5] bye
Kerry Melville[4] bye
Evonne Goolagong[3] bye
Kazuko Sawamatsu(Jpn)[6] bye
Dianne Fromholtz[7] bye
Olga Morozova(USSR)[2] bye

I know there were no official computer rankings at the time, but I am curious about these seedings. While some experts ranked Morozova #4 in 1974, most still rated Evonne #3 for that year. Considering Evonne was defending champion, it's very surprising that Evonne would have been seeded third behind Morozova.

Also, Martina did well late in 1974, and I believe Tennis magazine ranked her #10 for the year. So it's also surprising Martina would have been as low as #8 seed, behind Fromholtz and Gourlay. Ironic, considering only 6 months later, Wimbledon seeded Navratilova #2, ahead of Court, Goolagong, Wade, and King.

Re: Thread 1975

I recently got hold of "1976 Virginia Slims Tennis Media Guide", which has the full singles and double draws for all Slims tournaments in 1975 (and 74, actually). I haven't got time to wade through all these postings -sorry!- so if there are any events with some incomplete results let me know and I'll complete them for you.

Thanks Declan! What we will probably want is seeding and who was a qualifier. Does your guide have qualy results?

It has the venue, surface, seedings, full doubles draw and prize money per round for each tournament, but no-one is ever noted as a qualifier.

Re: Thread 1975

Guys,

Do you have results for Virginia Slims Championship, which was presumably held on the week of March 31, 1975 and won by Evert?

Re: Thread 1975

Hi Mick,
Yes Dundee Davis and Flo Bryan are both American. Bryan played through 1976, Davis returned in 1977.

Does this mean that the draw was 23 players? Or the rest of 1st round results is unknown?
