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.:confused:

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!

OK, kiddkidd wrote "...the Top 8 men's seeds for the 1975 Australian Open..." It's a women's tennis forum, but hey. So here are the men's seeds in case that's what was meant (and still interested):

1. Jimmy CONNORS (USA)
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)
