Yes - she wore that hat in the 73 AO and since play started on 26 Dec 1972, an easy mistake for them to make.
Thanks GeeTee! I hope things are going well for you these days.

One good thing (perhps the only good thing?) about all the Court controversy these days is many photos are surfacing:

Re: Margaret Court Picture Thread

Thanks for posting the pic GeeTee-I wasn't aware Mags was at the Big W.

And nice to see some color from an early film!

Re: Margaret Court Picture Thread

I like this recent one:



Also I was enjoying on YT seeing some colour film of Marg vs Billie-Mean in 1963 - not sure if it's been posted before, but anyway:

Shame it seemed to have mostly unforced errors in the 'highlights' lol

"Aimersoft DVD Ripper" although it only lets you rip 10 x DVDs before you have to pay a fee apparently.

Re: Margaret Court Picture Thread

I think I have been able to upload the video snippet on GOAT - Margaret Court that was shown during the French Open 2016 recently. I made a DVD and then uploaded it to my computer and converted it to MP4 with some free software then I managed to upload that to You Tube. I hope it works - it seems fine to me. Let me know peoples ....

Yes - I'm pretty sure that would be her last Aussie tournament victory at the Dec 76 Toyota at Kooyong where she had a slight leg injury but beat Barker, Stove and Reid comfortably. She had a ding-dong battle with her old rival Lesley Bowrey in the first round though.

Re: Margaret Court Picture Thread

Thanks for posting this Raiden!

If I should venture a good guess I would say this is from an Aussie event in late 1976.

I base it on 2 things:

1. The Toyota sign-I believe they were sponsors only from 1976.
2. Her racquet and general look

Re: Margaret Court Picture Thread

1) login to youtube (get a google account if you don't have one)
2) choose from menu or an "upload" button (the top right corner)
3) you'd be asked to "select files to upload" you do that >> then indicate where the file is
4) youtube will take care of the rest >> you edit name/title and so forth to finish off

Yes Raiden I just checked and I have the Court GOAT piece which goes for 2 1/2 minutes. It's on my DVD Recorder ... I have no idea how to get it off a DVD recorder and put it online ...

I did record the Margaret Court one and I think I still have it on my hard drive. I'll have to check.
