1979

Summary

Martina Navratilova erased all doubts as to her #1 status in 1979. The serve and volleyer dominated the indoor season, winning the Avon Championships in Madison Square Garden before a record crowd. Opting to skip the revived clay clourt season, the ex-Czech lost a classic to Evert at Eastbourne, but once again won the biggest prize of all at Wimbledon. Navratilova swept aside both Austin and Evert in straight sets.

The second half of the year saw Martina dip a bit, but unlike 1978 she regained steam and won a series of events late in the year. When she utterly demolished Tracy Austin in the Colgate Championships Martina sat alone at the top. Her 7-6 record vs Austin and 5-3 record vs Evert left her with clear edges over her two nearest rivals.

Thanks to Preacherfan for compiling most of the results in the initial thread. Major thanks to Chaton for expanding the thread with full and detailed results for the major events.

Draw Notes:

The #5 seed (who ????) withdrew. Seeds 6-8 were moved up a notch. The ITF site has Blount as #5 (up from 6) seed, Doerner as #6 (up from 7), and Nagelsen as #7 (up from 8). LL-Hermansen is in the spot of the other seed.

----------------------------------------

Summary:

Poor prize money meant a poor field, despite hopes that some of the world's top ten women who came to Australia for Fed Cup in early December would stay. Evert and King left right after Fed Cup. Aussie Stars Turnbull, Reid, Fromholtz and Virginia Wade of Britain entered warm up events with prize money of $75,000 US, but skipped the Aussie Open itself, which only had $35,000 US and a top prize of $6,000. It was no way to go about attracting a quality entry. This was the weakest quality ever, with even most Australian women in America chasing the big bucks.

4 of the top 7 seeds fell in the first 3 days. Within minutes of each other the top 2 seeds were beaten in quarterfinals. A huge crowd formed as word spread that Evers was about to knock off tournament favorite Sue Barker. Sue clawed back from 3-5 down and had two set points in the tiebreak, but Diane "urged on by the crowd as daylight faded, unleashed 4 winners to clinch the win." Sue hadn't practiced before Melbourne, nursing a bad back from Fed Cup a couple weeks previous.

Finalist Betsy Nagelsen had come to Australia only because her coach Jim Fannin was coming with two of his male charges. Betsy was once a top prospect in 1974 before injuries set her back. She upset #2 seed Tomanova, who complained of partying too much on New Year's Eve and getting an early morning phone call from back home. Upon reaching the final over plucky 5 ft tall Matison, Nagelsen declared of her effort, "Not bad for someone nobody knows."

Coming through the carnage was Chris O'Neil, so unknown she wasn't among the top 20 Aussie women. She "shrugged off the embarrasment of a misspelt surname on center court" to become the dark horse champion of all time among Grand Slam champs.

Chris was the first unseeded champ of either gender in Oz in 20 years. Her computer ranking coming into the Open was 111. To this day she remains the last Australian, male or female , to win her nation's singles championship.

Whatever her rank, Chris can proudly say she is a Grand Slam champion.

Before a packed house of 5,00 Tracy routs Martina to announce her arrival at the top echelon of women’s tennis. Austin never drops serve, facing only 3 break points the entire match. Martina looked set to rally at 3-5 in the first, having 2 break points on Austins' serve. A missed backhand and an overhead error got Tracy back to deuce, then austin closed it out.

Martina afterwards, 'I wasbn't patient enough in the long rallies. Actually I did ok during the rallies, but then on the next point I didn't want to go through a long rally again, and I got impatient going for a winning shot."

Austin's test came in the QF vs Shriver. This was their first meeting as seniors, and Pammy's home town
connections (she hails from nearby Maryland) helped spur her on. When Shriver won the second set the crowd gave her a standing ovation. Austin quickly shot out ahwead in the third and never let go.

Richards overcome 1 match points at 3-5 down to upset Ruzici in the 1R. This was Renee's first event since undergoing surgery on her left foot in September. Anne Smith upset an erratic Betty Stove, who littered the stat sheet with missed volleys and serves.

Total attendance: 32,500.

Draw note: According to the AP Shriver is the #7 seed and Jausovec #8. For now I am going with the seeds from the WTA site.

Another early loss for Betty Stove, who will quickly fall out the top ten for good by mid-1979.

Martina's serve is like a juggernaut in the final, she loses only 5 points serving the entire match! It's Navratilova's 4th consecutive Houston win-sweet since she has settled in Dallas.

Wade: "Martina is the strongest player at the net. for power and speed. She has the best first volley around, and her serve is so tough it takes you a set to get used to it."

Navratilova has won 4 consecutive title in Houston-a run of 20 matches.

The match of the event was the QF tussle Martina had with Virginia Ruzici. "Vergie" was up a set 1-0, but Martina broke at 5-4 to win the second. "I had my chances", proclaimed the Rumanian after the 100 minute match.

Wade hit 7 aces in her semi win over Turnbull.

A stunning development as Greer Stevens trounces the ever-steady Chris Evert in round one. This is only the second time in Evert’s career that she has lost before the quarterfinals in any event. Even more remarkable is the routine straight-set nature of the win. From 3-2 Stevens reels off 6 consecutive games-making only 6 errors in that stretch. Chris on the shocker: "Greer played very well. She is a hit or miss player and tonight she wasn't missing anything." Stevens said: "Tonight I hit every forehand as hard as I could."

Sue Barker shows promise that ’79 will be an improvement over a dismal ’78 with an upset over Austin.

Stevens proves it’s no fluke as she dumps Fromholtz to win the event. Dianne serves two doubles faults at 3-3 in the last set. Greer's biggest win is "miraculous". The South African had knee surgery in 1978 requiring over 300 stitches and wears a mechanical knee-brace that leaves onlookers wondering how she can even move. Stevens decides to bank the money to save for her dream, a cow farm she plans to open with fiancee Ken Smith.

Wade an early upset victim due to botching several volleys and Mima's all-court play. Reid almost followed, escaping Teeguarden, who served for the match at 5-4 in the third.

Austin overcomes her nemesis Reid for the first time in the semis. Kerry used clever drop shots; Austin's improved mobility and strength allowed her to do more than scurry up and merely get them back. Navratilova shows Tracy that she’s the player to beat by reversing the Washington result, reversing 3 straight defeats. Martina comes back from 1-3 in the first and 1-2 in the second to win in straights.

8,325 for the final-a total of 50,201 for the week.

*Top doubles seeds uncertain. Casals/Evert #1 or #2-Jausovec/Ruzici #1 or #2. Hunt/Walsh probable #4 seeds.

Thin on quality for a large event. Only Evert and Turnbull (seeded #3) in the top ten.

Richards upsets Wendy in the quarters and rolls on to her best result for a major event.

The grim struggle would have been a major breakthrough for Richards had she won. The promotor Boyd Browning (husband of Fancoise Durr) is said to have told Renee afterwards, "Renee, I don't know what would have happened had you won."

Draw note: the WTA site lists Tomanova as a default in the !R, but World Tennis gives a score.

Martina jumped out ahead 3-1 to open the final. Evert broke back twice "the momentum changed right there", she was say later. 8 straight games fell to Evert before Martina broke the spell trailing 0-3 in the second. "Martina started off so loose, and playing aggressivly, because she knows she has to play that way to beat me. But if she goes off her best then I'll take advantage of that."

The win vaults Evert back to the #1 spot on the computer. An added plus for Evert was getting revenge vs Stevens in the semis. Greer had upset her in the 1R at Hollywood. Chris took her apart in 49 minutes. Martina was equally effifient in thumping Tracy before a home crowd. "Why couldn't she have done it in another town and not with all my friends watrching?" the teen half-joked.

Marikova returned after 7 weeks off due to a knee injury.

Draw note: The Tomanova-Mascarin result comes from the NYT and is listed as 1R match-but thi sis impossible, as Fromholtz d Tomanova in the 1R. The more likely scenario here is that the match was a qualifying match. Mascarin was from Michigan, so perhaps she was given a special wildcard for a shot at the main draw.

Wendy Turnbull trips Navratilova in the semis and wins the event. Casals upsets old rival Wade in a run of upsets. "I always fell I have an edge on her [Wade]". Casals then beat #5 seed Kiyomura and nearly got to the final-extending Ruzici to 3 all in the third set of their semi.

Ruzici led 5-3 and 6-5 in the last set of the final yet was never closer than 3 points from victory. Turnbul won despite an atrocious serving night-she spat out 12 double faults.

A big prize money event featuring a 64 draw, which explains why there is no $25,000 Futures event this week.

Win or lose Martina Navratilova came in on a high. Her 84 year old grandmother Andela Subertova is on a visit. This is first time Martina has seen anyone in her family since her defection in 1975. The Czech government allowed Subertova out because of her advance age. Martina still hasn't seen he parents in over 3 years.

Evert snuffs out 3 break points in serving for the first set at 5-4 vs hard hitting Barker. A rare volley winner put the seal on the first set for Chris. Wade served well in beating Fromholtz, no surprise, as that's her forte. Austin's 3 aces vs Tomanova were something else altogether. "That's usually my quota for several matches", Tracy beamed.

Navratilova couldn't have been more pleased in finally winning her hometown event. She is in devastating form in the final, losing only 1 point on serve in set 1 and 7 in the second set. Evert's only break came at 1-4 down in the second. "I passed her well, but she made some unbelievable gets" exclaimed Evert, who added that Martina was "unbeatable" and "hungrier than I was. Yuo could see it, the way she was jumping up and down. I don't know if it was becasue she had never wonhere, or maybe because her grandmother was here, and she got an emotional lift from that."

Earlier in the week Renee Richards was booed vs Casals. Stap replace Pam Shriver in the draw when the tall American came down with the flu.

10,125 see the final. The week's attendance was 59,225- a record for a women's only event.

Draw note: Per John Dolan's book the 1R May-Ruzici match was 4-4 retired-but the WTA draw, World Tennis and the New York Times all cite it as a default. The 4-4 retirement possibly Barker-Fromholtz. The NYT alludes to a retirement by Fromholtz, yet the WTA draw and World Tennis cite score as 7-6 6-4. Verify with a Philly based paper if possible.

The field is littered with the walking wounded. Ruzici defaults with a bad knee, Fromholtz possibly retires due to bad knee. Greer Stevens, whose knee operation in 1978 took 3000 stitches-is also hurt again. Even eventual winner Wendy Turnbull has a sore shoulder.

Kathy Jordan provides a huge upset in taking out Tracy Austin, the top seed and main draw for fans this year. Austin held serve only twice all match. No injury here-jusr poor play that in Tracy's opinion stunk. 'I had no feel for the ball today. I couldn't even keep the ball in play. Everybody has off days, and this is one of mine."

Pam Shriver chooses to turn pro at this event. After losing in the QF to Turnbull she said, "I must learn to control my emotions. I wanted to take my racquet and chuck it when things started going against me." After losing the first set 7-5 even a partisan crowd couldn't help her past the cagy Turnbull. Afterwards Wendy said, "I just kept running all the time. That's why they call me rabbit."

Greer Stevens comes in on a high-seeded #3. The bad news is her knee is hurting again. Virginia attacks constantly, ignoring an obviously injured Greer.

Casals looked set to make the final at 6-0 2-1 before dropping 6 straight games. Turnbull didn't win a game for 35 minutes. "I thought for a while that this was going to be the shortest match in history." After getting her first gasme Wendy's sore arm loosened up and she dug in. After leading 3-2 the Aussie won the second set. Wendy closed out a tense final set 6-3 by using an arsenal of dinks and lobs. This is Casals last singles semi in an important event as she transitioned to becoming mainly a doubles specialist.

Sue and Virginia's semi was another fluctuating affair. Wade led 4-0 in the third set when Barker came back to almost tie it. Barker netted a forehand to make it 5-3 Wade. A fired up Virginai closed it out over a tiring Barker.

Wade captures the first set of the final after saving 2 set points at 4-5 on her serve. 2 aces put an exclamation point on the first set. One more set and the Englishwoman would have her first singles title in months. The bubble bursts at 2-0 in the second though, as a tired Ginny (her doubles the night before ended at 1:40 AM) ran out of gas. "it was my intention to tie her out", Turnbull said. "I tried to slow the pace down, especially on her backhand."

Wade: "Of course I was tired, having played 6 sets yesterday and my doubles match lasting until early morning. But that's not an excuse. I simply was not able to concentrate on my game."

Total attendance=22,296-the lowest on the circuit this year. As a result the event is cancelled-not appearing again until 1991.

WTT is no more. With more teams dropping out by the day the grand experiment called World Team Tennis (1974-1978) is dead. Once the Europeans decided to throw money into the Colgate women's tour and rejuvenate the French the exodus began-with Chris Evert, still the #1 draw in tennis, deciding not to renew her contract.

’78 was a down year for both Fromholtz and Barker and they rebound to meet in a big Avon final. Barker’s only career win over Evert, and an importqnt one, as making the final earned her enough points to qualify for the Avon finale event in Madison Square Garden.

Barker comes out and flattens a flat Evert in the QF. Sue had never beaten Chris before. Evert may have had other matters on her mind as her marriage to John Lloyd nears. Edy McGoldrick organized a bridal shower for Chris that lasted five hours. "My heart wasn't in it."

Nome of that mattered to Barker, who stared, "I consider this my greatest win because I have beaten everyone else."

Casals and Wade had contentious match. Wade strongly argues a call at 5-5 in the second set until Casals snapped, "If you want it that badly you can have it." Rosie accused Virginia of being a bad sport in the presser after the match. ""Every time I play her it seems like she argues every point. At the professional level I don't think a palyer should carry on the way Virginia does. It's unnecessary. It's very unsportsmanlike to conduct herself that way." It didn't stop there. Casals continued, "I'm not the only one who feels that way either. Virginia never gives anyone credit when she loses. She's a bad loser. Everybody hates to lose. I hate to lose." When Wade was asked about Rosie's comments she replied, "Rosie's always been a very good sport. I don't pretend to be a good sport. I'm not a bad sport. if I feel like doing something, I do it."

The two were heard shouting at each other in the locker room afterwards.

Off court storms were matches by on court drama, as Wade took 1 hour and 55 minutes to dispose of Greer Stevens for the second week in a row. Stevens couldn't convert 3 set points on her serve at 5-3. She led again at 5-2 in the tiebreak and was unable to convert 2 more set points. Wade finally won the tiebreak at 11-9 on match point #7.

Turnbull's semi loss snaps a 13 match win streak, probably the longest of her career.

Wade had 2 set points of her own vs Barker in the semis. Virginia apparently did feel like complimenting Barker for her semi win. "She played out of her mind. She hit winners off her backhanf I couldn't believe. She hit an incredible percentage of winners. She dictated the game." Barker recalled being a ball girl for "her idol" Wade at the age of 11. Barker, who was never seeded in any Avon event, now is guarenteed of making the 8 woman tour finale.

7,185 come out for the final. Dianne won in straight sets as Barker commits a slew of errors. Sue complianed of being ill afterwards. "A lot of us were sick last night. I think it was something we ate. Today I wasn't able to stay in the rally long enough to do what I had to do."

The Futures tour features players whose rankings were low enough or who performed poorly enough on the Avon tour to merit exclusion from the higher tier events. For example, Kathy Jordan is a newcomer to the tour. She won early in the season on the Futures circuit and went on to beat Tracy Austin in an Avon event. Regina Marsikova, however, finished ’78 just outside the top ten and suffered early losses on the Avon tour which demoted her to the Futures circuit. Then you have players like Betty Ann Stuart and Sharon Walsh, who had long careers with mediocre success who made a living out of one or two wins a week in singles and perhaps a better run in doubles. The “Futures” name implied that you would catch the up and coming players, yet often the winners had been around for awhile.

1R: Dianne Fromholtz d Martina Navratilova 7-5 6-1
1R: Chris Evert d Tracy Austin 6-1 7-5

FI: Chris Evert d Dianne Fromholtz 3-6 6-3 6-1

3rd place: Auatin d Kerry Reid 6-2 7-6 (*Reid replaces Navratilova)

Dianne crashes the elite party, but Chrissie wins the event and avenges losses to Austin and Fromholtz at the Avon finale. Fromholtz upset the plot line in taking out the world #1. As the first outdoor event in months Martina was vulnerable. Dianne's life has undergone a lot a change of late. In recent months Dianne dropped 22 pounds. This was in addtion to fighting off chicken pox, mumps, and measles, and flu. She also lost a fiance with her poundage, breaking off an engagement.

Fromholz took out Evert at the Graden just a week ago. In contrast Navratilova complained later of sore thigh muscles. Fromholtz ws "hoping like mad I would be picked" to round out the 4 woman field. She had almost been pased over in favor of Pam Shriver. The hard hitting Aussie repeatedly passed Navratilova's on the backhand side. "There was no pressure on me. I had nothing to to lose. And I'll have nothing to lose against Chris." (NYT) Martina: "I couldn't cope with her 200 mile an hour passing shots."

Dianne came out firing the next day, shooting to a 6-3 3-1 lead before the the wheels came off. Evert proceeded to take the next 9 games in a row-dropping only 1 gbame in the third set. dianne was doing all the damge with her forehand this time. When Evert nudged ahead with a series of drop shots and errrrs from a tired Fromholyz the end was inevitable.

Quote of trhe week; Evert on the final: "I may look unemotional, but I was going crazy on crucial points."

At least the first 2 days were contested in Osaka. The fimals were in Tokyo.

"I know nums with better social lives than me", Wendy Turnbull, referring to the lonliness of traveling on tour alone. "You don't get close to many women because you have to play eveyone. It's very hard to play close friends." Wendy likes to play Boggle, a word game that is all the rage on tour this year.

Married couples traveling together are rare-2 well known couples being the Goolagong's and Reid's. Virginia Ruzici travesl with her boyfriends, but she is the only one known to take her beau on the road with her.

Evonne Goolagong is granted a wildcard and returns to the tour after being out almost 10 months. Only Evert (getting married) and Wade are absent from the top ten. Her comeback has her facing an odd assortment of players, from teen Caroline Stoll, who loops everything with topsin bouncing up about the shoulders, to transexual Renee Richardsm who is still peeved that the European tennis associations contunie to reject her applications for their events despite her WTA membership. Known in the past for her eliance on coaches or her husband to make decisions, Evonne has started to make more decisions for herself since becoming a mom.

With Evert getting hitched can Kerry Reid finally become a bride of sorts herself and win this thing? Kerry's husband Raz is a native of South Carolina, and the pair is buying a home here. Reid has been the RU 3 times to Evert. Kerry makes a believer out of many by beating world #1 Navratilova in the semis. Kerry's backhand was solid as a rock and had a lot of depth. Martina later indicated she was bothered a painful wart on her big right big toe. "I didn't think I was ready to guts it out todaty" she said later. It was serious enough for her to get in surgically removed, keeping her out of the French Open.

Goolagong is rudely welcomed back to the tour and throttled by Austin. It was a 57 minute massacre, with Evonne only garnering 10 points in the first 9 games. "I didn't expect her to be THAT consistent" the Aussie mused afterwards. It's Evonne's worst defeat since the 1975 Wimbledon debacle at the hands of Billie Jean King. Austin was unfazed by the partisan crowd at Sea Pines, which cheeredw ildly for Evonne on the rare osscasions she won points.

Tracy is showing her competitive streak off the court as well. When the press praised Shriver for finaishing high school in two years Austin chirped, "Ask her what her grades are, be sure to do that!"

The final is intriguing due to Reid’s past success against Tracy and her history at the event. A sellout crowd of 3,200 is in for a treat as Reid's drop shots send Austin scrurrying about the court. The difference from this and earlier matches comes down to Austin's ability to hit outright winners off the drop shots due to her increased height and strength. 90 degree heat adds to the pressure.

Breaks predominate, and Austin fails to close it out at 5-3 in the second. ("I never choded before i my entire life, but I choked in this match. I was getting really tentative on my shots." Reid had a set point at 6-5 in the last tiebreak-losing a long rally rather than taking a risk. Tracy won the tight 2 hour 20 minute contest on match point #3 with a backhand passing shot.

Reid's remarks: "Tracy's tough and she's going to get better. I probably just wanted to win it too badly."

American teen Caroline Stoll begins her months of fame with a run to the finals by taking out 3 seeds-Jausovec, #2 Dianne Fromholtz and #5 Virginia Ruzici before Evert clobbers her in the finals.

First comes her stunning upset of #2 seed Fromholtz. As a journeywoman Stoll could have easily gone to pieces after her purse was stolen on the courts. Inside was $1,800 worth of cash and traveler's checks, plus plane tickets home for her and coach Mark Harrison. Caroline calls the upset "the biggest win of my life" and cheekily adds, "I suppose if I keep on winning I can buy a plane a plane of my own to go home on."

Ruzici had a set point at 5-4 in the semis. Stoll's heavy topspin was a chore, and she was slightly bothered by knee pain.

In the final Evert got back all the loopers Caroline threw at her. Though it took 1 hour and 10 minutes the outcome was never in doubt. "I knew I had to drop shot her", Chris said. "I had played Caroline before and I knew what I had to do. I was determined to win this tournament. I was not about to lose two weeks in a row."

Evert wins what must’ve been one of the tightest battles these two have ever fought. However, the final almost never occurred. Anne Smith was up matchpoint on Chris Evert in her first match. Smith hit a shot that both players thought was in. Both players began to make their ways to the net, when a delayed “out” call was made. Given the reprieve, Evert won the set in a tiebreak and the third 6-0. Anne Smith lists this match as her greatest disappointment on the court. (The other was when she reached #12 in ’82 and was charging toward the top ten, only to contract the mumps and to take several months to return to top physical shape.)

--------------------------------------
Notes:
The second US Open at Flushing Meadows crowns a young 16 year old in pigtails as champion. The hard courts were still tough on the feet as 8 men and 4 women retired. There were complaints about the "swells" and "dips" on center court, which also had a slope on one end. The sticky surface got a lot of flak, especially after Regina Marsikova went over on her ankle after only a couple points vs. Virginia Wade in the round of 16. Regina had to be wheeled off the court in tears.

Surrounded by an entire entourage of family, coaches (Landsdorp and serving coach Roy Emerson) and 2 agents, the teen turned into a "ruthless little dictator who rules the baseline with an iron will and whiplash two handed backhands". Off court she giggles and answers questions with "I dunno" or such Tracyisms as "it was tension city out there".

Tracy held up well in facing down someone younger than herself for the first time. She took out 15 year-old Andrea Jaeger in Rd 2. Jaeger is the youngest to get a direct entry into the US open, while 14 year old Kathy Horvath is the youngest ever competitor. Austin said of Jaeger, "I didn't hit as many moon balls at that age".

"Tension city" came in the match of the Open, Austin's wild 4th round encounter with slicing and charging Kathy Jordan on the grandstand. Jordans answer to a shaky backhand is to "catapault to net at every opportunity and fling herself in the line of opposing bullets".At 5-6 15-30 in the third Tracy was on the knife's edge, two points form defeat-"but responded with 2 sizzling forehands" to even matters. By now Kathy's demeanor "which sometimes rivals that of McEnroe's worst scowls. turned surly". The tiebreak was full of contested calls by Jordan, who left the court muttering how "the stars get all the breaks". Austin was gracious in victory but showed her own cold streak in declaring how she never thought she would lose the match.

In the semis Austin upended Martina for the third time this year by going to Navratilova's forehand more often than usual beofre working on her weak backhand "like a cavity". Martina's sliding and skidding volleys sat up more for Austin on the Deco Turf.

"Tracy, pigtails bobing, would pounce on short balls and pound them deep and hard to the backhand". Despite her surface disadvantage Martina had Austin at 5-5 0-40 on Trcy's serve in set 1. After Austin recovered in that game she never looked back. Martina flung her racquet to the ground in disgust at that point and was promptly broken. Teary eyed but complimentary of Austin in defeat, Navratilova came up with the line of the day. "At least I got one round further than Bjorn".

Evert had no problems in reaching her 5th consecutive US Open final. Much anticipated matches vs. Goolagong and King were blowouts for Evert. High winds marred the quality of all the quarterfinals. Billie Jean had injured her neck the night before the semi when she hugged a friend. King gamely soldiered out to play rather than default and dissapoint a big crowd. Her reward was one game.

Evert was anxious for the final. She said of Austin, "Tracy has no nerves-- just like I was at 18 or 19 ". Here was someone who did all the things she coud do, only Austin was a younger and fresher model. Austin worked over Chrissie's forehand with deep backhands down the line. Evert broke Austin early only to give the break back twice, the second time by blasting an overhead inches wide. Faced with her own medicine, Evert was curiously timid, as if waiting for Austin to crack. When asked if she was nervous at all afterwards Austin chirped, "No way". Tracy let out a high pitched squeak on winning and skipped up the net. As Tracy was mobbed by photographers Evert quietly went over to her freind's box where Casals and Navratilova were crying. "Chrissie forced a smile and tried to console them".

It took Austin to do what nothing else has-gain Evert the sympathy of the record crowd of 18,288.

The crowd was more in favor of Austin, but not like the crowds for her previous 4 finals. Has the mantle she's worn for 4 years finally passed to Tracy?

Doerner replaced Carrie Meyer in the main draw.
Whitmore=Buchanan

In an unusual bit of scheduling, Navratilova was made to play 3 doubles matches the day before her big semifinal showdown with Austin. (A bit of "home cooking" from the officials? )

Dianne Fromholtz, always a threat to the top players, dumps Martina, and Evonne Goolagong continues Tracy’s post-US Open woes to meet in a final. Dianne can't overcome the final hurdle, losing to her countrywoman for the 11th time in their last 12 meetigs. "This is just what I needed," said Evonne. " now I know that i can still do it."

Note per Preacherfan: This is the first final I remember televised by ESPN. We didn’t have cable yet, but my friend told me he watched this match and I knew I had to get cable.

Note that the WTA site has dates of october 10-14 rather than an October 8 start date.

Heat affects play. Turnbull was bothered by it in the semis. The final saw the mercury rise to 90 degrees. Martina declared to be happy to win the final in straight sets, "because I don't think I could take it with this heat." What Martina does take with her is the #1 computer ranking and a 4-2 head to head vs Chris this year.

The 56 minute match swung on a couple of facotrs. One was Chris' poor serving. She only made 18 of 45 first serves. By compariosn Martina's serve boomed in, dropping serve only once.

Goolagong shows she’s near top form with her second consecutive tournament victory and straight set win over Austin. A bubbly Evonne said "I think tonight was the best I have ever played" after beating the young American.

Meanwhile Chris Evert-Lloyd defaulted in the semis due to her tonsils. She had uncharacteristically struggled earlie in the week, taking over two hours to dispose of Ruzici in the QF.

Evonne's win gives her a 28-9 edge in her head to head matchups with Virginia. Wade's only consolation is the match lasts over an hour at 62 minutes. After the 16 point first game went to Evonne she rolled through the match. Virginia opined of her 13 match losing streak, "It's a pyschological thing against her."

A notable early round match was Stoll-Fromholtz. Caroline crazy topspin and moonballs had Dianne in tears. At 1:45 in the morning and 2 and half hours of fighting she screamed "I can't go on anymore!" and retired.

41,903 saw the event (a state record), with 5,388 for the final. Theis was the first women's event to be televised all-week in the US on a local cable channel.

Wilcard Lena Sandin provides the local excitement for the week by getting all the watys to the semis.

South African Brigite Cuypers, only 23, has declared this will be her last year. She says she won't be swayed after upsetting Wendy Turnbull. Why? "It's the travel. It doesn't make me happy to travel 9 months a year."

Billie Jean busted her bahoolas off to win here. In the semis King-Ruzici tussle goes on 2 and a half hours. Vergie was only 3 points away from an upset win at 4 all in the tiebreak. An exhuasted King refused to speak to reporters afterwards.

In the final is one of the oldest for a tour event-the combined age being 70. Billie jean is cruising to an easy win at 6-3 3-0 when Stove catches fire. Betty wins the tiebreak. At 4-4 in the third King double faults to go down 4-5. "I thought I had lost it at that point. I was just praying to get a racquet on her serve." At 15-30 King hit a winning stop volley. A Stove ace brought it to 30-40 but after 2 hours and 38 minutes King claimed the top prize.

Only 1,400 came to see the final. King remarked, "In Europe, women's tennis is ten years behind. I wonder if it will ever be like in America? The corwds for us were as poor as when I first played here."

The men start their $170,000 event on the last day for the women.

With Wade aging, Barker no longer a consistent threat, and few British junior hopes, the Wightman Cup has bleak hopes for the future. The goings on at West Palm do nothing to conter the impression. On the opening day Barker self destructs vs Evert-Lloyd, making 33 errors off her normally deadly forehand side and 26 off the backhand. Sue wildly falils at shots and misses her chance, as Chris was not at her best either. Rain then pours down on the seconf match as Kathy Jordan jumped out to a set lead vs Hobbs.

Summary written by Ann Jones (from 1980 World of Tennis Annual)

Everyone agreed that the second Porsche Classic ...was a happy tournament, especially for teenage terror Tracy Austin.

A year ago in Stuttgart , the 15 year old schoolgirl had celebrated the start of her professional career with a decisive final win aganst Betty Stove. Twelve months and some $420,000 later , the schoolgirl returned as the US Open champion-an altogether more mature competitor-and claimed her second Porsche title and a second Porsch sports car, which she again preferred to the first prize on $20,000. hitting her forceful ground strokes with relentless accuracy, she outplayed Chris Evert-Lloyd and Martina Navratilova in the last two rounds, for the loss of a meagre 10 games. The feeling was inescapable that a new era had arrived.

Yet the Austin express was almost derailed in the second round when Europe's leading teenager, 17 year-old Hana Mandlikova of Prague, captured the only set the number 3 seed was to lose all week. Austin was thankful to escape with a 6-4 5-7 6-4 win against a more flexible opponent who cleverly exposed her relative slowness on the turn when subjected to a mixed bag of drives, volleys and lobs.

Miss Austin's 6-3 7-5 semi..win against Mrs Evert-Lloyd was a repeat of the US Open final, though this time the reigning world champion did reach set point minutes before the end, only to be denied the game by a decision which obviously surprised her as aforehand down the line was called out.

In the top half. Miss Navratilova emerged to her top-seeded position in the final without a fuss. A quarterfinal default from Kerry Reid, who was suffering from tennis elbow, was followed by a comfortable 7-5 6-2 win over a still exhausted Mima jausovec, who had earlier played the longest match of the year. That ordeal occured in the 2R against the top-spinning Californian lefthander Stacy Margolin, who detained her for 3 and a half hours before the Yugoslav survived 6-1 3-6 7-6. In the quarters, too, Mima was taken the full distance by Nina Bohn, who covered herself in glory by eliminating $3 sed Billie Jean King.

Other notes from the wires:

Heidi Eisterlehner had to qualify when the event withdrew her wild card and gave it to Chris Evert. Bohm provides an early shocker by putting out King. Martina looks to be next, surviving a scare from Hanika, who led 4-2 and 5-4 in the decide.

In the semis Navratilova saved a set point with backhand volley winner. The contentious austin-Evert semi saw Tracy win 7 straight games from 1-3 in the first. Evert looked set to win the second set when
her forehand was called out on set point for her. Afterwards the teen attributes her win to having more stamina. "Before, when I played her I would get tired. I wasn't tired in the second set."

Tracy clobbers Martina in a 56 minute final. She won the last 9 games. Martina missed a steady stream of backhands and failed in her tactic of drawing Tracy up to net. Now that she of age to drive Austin opts for the Porsche 924 rather than the prize money. Besides, the car was worth $10,000 more in the US than Germany.

Longest match of the week was Jausovec-Margolin, which lasted 3 hours 20 minutes. Jausovec saved 4 match points in the tiebreaker.

Martina declares, "This is the best I have felt at the end of the year for a long time." She had a right to her confidence, beating Evert for the third consecutive time since Wimbledon. The 75 minute final vs Evert wasn't as close as it looked, with Martina having game points in the first 9 games. The ex-Czech also seized 12 of the last 14 points. Bad line calls affected both women, who at times agreed to replay points only to be nixed by the umpire.

Her toughest match of the week came vs the "Old Lady" in the previous round. Billie Jean got a jewel case and cake by the sponsors on her 36th birthday. What she really wanted though was to beat Martina in the semis.

Martina won a tight first set, then won only 7 points as she swallowed a bagel. Then the momentum swung again. With Martina up 5-3 Billie Jean saved a match point and roared forward to a lead of her own at 6-5 30-15. When Navratiova won the tiebreak she felt relief more than anything else. "Billie Jean is the only player I hadn't got a clean record against this year. It was 1-1 between us and that's why i wanted to win so badly to beat her."

Coles survived 3 qualy matches just to reach the main draw, then found herself in the quarters. Glynis came to Brighton with just two tennis dress and 10 quid, and found herself making multiple trips to the local laundrette as she progressed through the draw.

The 2R Ruzici-Jausovec tussle lasted 3 hours.

As if presaging her loss advance, Evert had conceded the #1 spot after winning her first round match.
Chris confessed that, "I know I am not going to be world #1 at the end of this year. Martina will get that. So whatever I do this week won't change that position. I am going to lose the #1 spot for the first time in years. I have to be single-minded to be #1 again, and I want to be #1."

In a funny twist Evert, not known for her serve, helped out Martina earlier in the week by spotting a hitch in the lefty's serve. "I have been trying to sort it out, but now that Chrissy has spotted the trouble it's fine", Martina said. As the year winds down things seem fine indeed for Miss Navratilova.

With 6 of the top ten present, an unseeded Hana wins her first big event. She is only 17, barely of age to drive the big shiny Toyota that is one of her prizes.

The final had an incident over a line call. At 3-5 down Wendy had a break point on Hana's serve at 30-40. A Mandlikova volley looked well long, but no out call came. Turnbull was never the same afterwards and went down tamely in a 65 minute final.

Hana of her dream run: "Today I won my biggest tournament against the best player I could have played in the final. I'm very happy."

The top two seeds went out early. Goolagong was done in by flu. She was on antibiotics before and during the event. After her first round match she was so eager to get off court she uncharacteristically refused to do an on court interview. Evonne defaulted right before her next match despite the fact her family had driven 400 miles to see her.

King, searching for a spot at the Colgate Championships, went out in the quarters vs Ruzici. Billie Jean blew a set point in the tirebreak and never won another game.

Good crowds all week, with 8,000 for Goolagong's first match.

Top seed Goolagong withdrew due to flue before the tournament; leaving a huge hole at the top of the draw.

With upsets clearing the way, Sue Barker wins over teen newcomer Ros Fairbank. it was a battle of big forehands, with Barker having the bigger guns. Ros had to qualify just to reach the main draw. This win helps Barker claim the #10 spot on the year-end rankings. Barker said: "This is the best I have played in two years. I really wanted to win this one. I was hungry. I'm convinced I can break back into the top 5 in the next 12 months."

Billie Jean King's quest to qualify for the Colgate Series Championships ends at the hands of Bettyann Stuart's fast serve,clocked at 170 kph in searing heat of over 100 degrees. Speaking of heat, Stuart's attractive face and halter top dress make her a photographer's delight.

Fairbank is the real story of the week. Starting out ranked 106 in the world, this attacking South African was staying in a $7 dollar a night YMCA in Sydney. Ros won 4 of 5 events and 22 of 23 matches on the aussie satellite cicuit leading up to here. In Sydner she captured 7 straight matches (3 in qualifying) before falling to Barker in the final.

6,000 see the finals.

Note on seeding:

Source for draw was the WTA site, but note I have altered the doubles seeding for the following reasons: (A) There can't have been 8 seeded doubles teams, (B) draw placement. The WTA site doubles draw has #2 seeds vs #3 seeds in the QF-impossible. Thus I have taken the #1 and #2 seeds as given and guessed at the #3 and #4 seeds based on draw position and seeds in other events.

I have listed the singles seeds as given by the WTA, but note (Per Chaton)
"The seedings are definetly not possible as given by WTA. Bunge is given as #3 seed, but would meet #2 seed Ruzici in QF in the draw. Gregory as #6 seed would have met #2 Ruzici in the 2nd round if she wouldn't have lost her first match."

(per Rollo) "the more likely #6 is Walsh, but this does not solve the Bunge mess."

Top seed Barker is put out by a leg injury and Mandlikova's sterling play. Sue saved six match points before falling on mp #7 in the match of the tournament.Barker had a set point herself at 6-5 in the tiebreak.

The finalists were extremely young, Bunge is 16 and 6 months and Hana 17 and 10 months. The Czechs win makes the the youngest NSW Champ ever, breaking the previous record by Mo Connolly. This is Hana's 3rd tournament win in 4 weeks in Australia-making her one of the favorites to win the Australian Open.

[From an AP wire story]

The arrival of Martina Navratilova's family on Decembver 20th is "the best Christmas present I could ask for" for the world #1. Since defecting in 1975 Martina had not both her parents and sister in person. Now the family is reunited and will be staying with her at her home in Dallas on a 1 year tourist visa. Earlier in the year her grandmother had been allowed to visit, and her motgher was present for her triumph at Wimbledon. Martina's father was her first coach. After winning Wimbledon again last summer his first comment to her was not "Good win", but "Your backhand is still rotten."

Martinas recalled how, "When I was 8 or 9 and not really good for my age he [her father] said I wouild win Wimbledon some day. They all laughed at him. He thinks my sister Jana can do it too. Maybe some day there will be a Navratilova vs Navratilova final at Wimbledon."

----------------------------------------

Summary:

For the first time in 18 years the top two seeds in the women’s draw at the Australian Open were overseas players. Neither top-seeded Virginia Ruzici of Romania, nor No.2-seeded Czechoslovakian Hana Mandlikova, lived up to their top billings, the former failing in the first round, the latter in the third round to No.5 seed Barbara Jordan of the USA. Hana was hindered by a number of footfaults in her losing QF.

In the end it was Jordan and fellow American Sharon Walsh who made it through to the final, Jordan’s 6-3 6-3 victory making her the first international woman to win the title since Virginia Wade in 1972.

The event was beset with numerous issues. Most matches were utterly one-sided, especially for an event feauturing all top-tenners. Of 11 matches played only 1 went to 3 sets.Other problems were defaults by Reid and Goolagong, a major snow storm, and a convoluted format.

Navratilova ploughed throw the field and cemented her first consensus #1 year end ranking with a dominant performance. Only 13 games went againt her in 4 matches. Her play was so close to perfection in the final that she drew gasps of amazement from the crowd. Even half-volleys off her shoelaces dropped over for winners. Afterwards Tracy confessed that "Martina's never played better."

Lannsdorp, Austin's coach: "She [Martina] played devastating."

Navratilova. "I hope this puts aside all doubts as to who is the #1 player." It certainly did. Tracy had high hopes coming in, winning her previosu 4 matches vs Martina. In 48 minutes all her dreams of ending #1 went up in smoke.

The confusing double elimination format led to Tracy Austin playing Chris Evert twice. First Tracy drubbed Chris in the Round Robin before 9,100. Austin played the villain, ignoring the crowds cheers for Evert.

After gaining the semis in a playoff match opponents were determined by a coin flip. Evert won her playoff and drew Tracy again for what some writers dub a "looking glass" match. Austin said she had a "premonition" she would face Evert again. Did tell you you would win?, reporters asked. "I don't have those kind of preminitions" she shot back with a smile.

9,800 came for the semis despite a huge snowstorm delaying matches until 3 PM. Chris stayed with Tracy until 3-3. "That stupid forehand", Chris muttered when she sent a forhand long for 3-3. She never got another game. Even shouts of "Wake up!" and "THAT's the Chris Evert I know" from fans couldn't reverse the tide. Evert: "she just got better and better." Austin: "Maybe people will believe I can beat her now." Tracy was also peeved by the USTA ranking Chris above her at #2 in the national rankings. "In the public's mind, Chris is still #1. I guess I'll have to keep doing this [beating her] over and over again."

Navratilova on Austin: "Tracy was never sweet, not even when she was 14." "She was always tough."

Evonne Goolagong withdrew due to badly spained finger. She stumbled and fell on her hand vs Navratilova in the third game of 6-3 6-2 defeat. Evonne played on wearing bandages as blood seeped out her finger. X-Rays after the match indicated no bones were broken, but her hand was scratched up on the carpet. Parrafin treatments were tried,but when it came time to face Turnbull for a place in the semis she could not grip the racquet

Kerry Reid qualifies for the series champs and retires expecting her first child. Kerry has been a fixture in women’s tennis since she defeated Billie Jean King as a teenager in the ’66 US Championships.

With 6 of the top ten present, Hana wins her first big event.

According to my "World of Tennis" annual this event was played at the Kooyong club. Does this mean that the same venue hosted this event and also the Australian Open a couple of weeks later? If so, why didn't some of the top women who played this event not stick around to play the Australian Open?

Rollo, please move my query to a separate thread if you want to restrict this thread to results only.

Yes indeedy.

If so, why didn't some of the top women who played this event not stick around to play the Australian Open?


Money. This event offered prize money of $100,000. Sydney followed with $100,000, then the NSW (also in Sydney) had $50,000. When the Australian followed the next week it also featured only $50,000. With the paltry prize money and the big event (The Colgate) the next week the Aussie LTA finally
got the message and poured $200,000 into the women's event in 1980.

1980 was the start of the "comeback" of the Australian open to true slam status.


Rollo, please move my query to a separate thread if you want to restrict this thread to results only.

Here is fine Samn. Because of your question I'll make sure to address this issue in the notes. Thanks:)

Colgate Series Championships ($250,000) Landover, Maryland, 2-7 January 1980

*Note: Though contested in 1980 this event ended the 1979 season.

Round Robin: Red Group
Tracy Austin d. Wendy Turnbull (Aus) 6-1 6-0
Chris Evert d. Dianne Fromholtz (Aus) 6-1 6-4
Austin d. Evert 6-1 6-3
Turnbull d. Fromholtz 4-6 6-1 6-4

Blue Group
Martina Navratilova d. Kerry Reid (Aus) 6-3 6-0
Evonne Goolagong (Aus) d. Regina Marsikova (Cz) 6-1 6-1
Navratilova d. Goolagong 6-3 6-2
Marsikova d. Reid walkover

Play-offs
Evert d. Marsikova 6-3 6-0
Turnbull d. Goolagong walkover

Semi-finals
Austin d. Evert 6-3 6-0
Navratilova d. Turnbull 6-2 6-0

Final
Navratilova d. Austin 6-2 6-1
(Third Place: Evert d. Turnbull 6-1 6-1)

Navratilova cements her first consensus #1 year end ranking with a dominant performance. Austin routs Evert twice. Tracy is still #3 on the computer, but she has proven her elevation above Evert. Kerry Reid qualifies for the series champs and retires expecting her first child. Kerry has been a fixture in women’s tennis since she defeated Billie Jean King as a teenager in the ’66 US Championships.

According to ITF Turnbull-Goolagong was "2-1, retired" rather than walkover.

I can confirm that the ITF is incorrect. Evonne never went on court vs Wendy. I can confirm this through newspaper clippings and personal experience. I was there that night and missed out on seeing Goolagong in person:sad:

A comment concerning Adalaide: The seedings are definetly not possible as given by WTA.

Bunge is given as #3 seed, but would meet #2 seed Ruzici in QF in the draw.

Gregory as #6 seed would have met #2 Ruzici in the 2nd round if she wouldn't have lost her first match.

chaton,
According to my copy of "World of Tennis", you've got the correct dates for the Gunze, but it wasn't Ruzici that Navratilova beat in the semis. World of Tennis has the following scores:

No, WoT has only the semi-final and final round scores for the Gunze, I'm afraid. However, Zummi's site does have the score for Martina's quarter-final match.

Thanks a lot, Miguel. So what exactly is the deal with the Gunze tournament? Tracy Austin's win in 1978 seems to be counted in her official list of tournament wins, but Navratilova's career total does not seem to include her win in 1979.

Also, does anyone know which Gunze tournament this link refers to? Was there more than one Gunze event in 1979?

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classic_du_Japon

Rollo
Mar 7th, 2012, 04:53 PM
Thanks Ugarte, and you too Samn.

Results added.


I can answer some of your questions about the Gunze event Samn. The French wiki has actually taken two different events and incorrectly joined them together.

Event #1 (1971-1978 on the wiki) is the Gunze tournament that started in 1971. At that time there was no unified world tour, so I would call it an 8 woman event rather than an exhibition. Early on the event was held indoors and outdoors, with different matches in various cities. There was an event in 1975 that is missing from this list.

At some point this event turned into what we would call an exhibition. From 1977 there WAS a world tour, and an 8 woman event was too small to turn into a tour event. And as the Japanese kept geting good fields anyway (and also had tour events) the sponsers, Gunze, were happy with the event.

The Gunze lasted well into the late 1980s. I recall watching the event on TV when I lived in Japan (1988 and 1989)-Steefi Graf and Manuela Maleeva played it more than once I believe. It died as the WTA tour became more unifed and events like Rome and Berlin grew in status.

The Nagelson-Sato result from 1979 is all mesed up.

621/05/1979Gunze Champ’s Kobe &, Tokyo87 500Dur (int.)http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a4/Flag_of_the_United_States.svg/20px-Flag_of_the_United_States.svg.png (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fichier:Flag_of_the_United_States.svg) Betsy Nagelsen (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betsy_Nagelsen)http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/9e/Flag_of_Japan.svg/20px-Flag_of_Japan.svg.png (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fichier:Flag_of_Japan.svg) Naoko Sato (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naoko_Sato)6-3, 6-4


The May date is correct for the Gunze exhibition. The Nagelson-Sato final is from the fall, and was a lower level tour event.

All the events listed after 1979 were tour level events and had NOTHING to do with Gunze.

Hope that answers your question.

We are. I can tell you because I am from this area and I actually attended in early 1980:)

The WTA guide probably used Washington as it's easier to know. In the 1970s they used to play the Virginia Slims of Washington at George Mason college, which is actualyl in northern Virginia-LOL.
