Andrea Temesvari won her biggest title in devastating form. She beat Helena Sukova 6-1 6-0, Kathy Rinaldi 6-0 6-0 and Bonnie Gadusek 6-1 60 i-n the last three rounds. Andrea's mix of heavy hitting interspersed with net forays beats out her more cautious baseline sisters.

Early rounds saw #1 seed Ruzici fall to Horvath and #5 seed Evonne Goolagong default.


Andrea wearing her trademark headband. 1983 was her best year by far, as she won 3 titles and finished in the world top ten.
