The $150,000 Murjani Cup women's tennis tournament opens today at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens with some late schedule changes.
The match between Evonne Goolagong Cawley and Rosie Casals and Hana Mandlikova's match with a qualifier have been postponed until Tuesday afternoon because Casals and Mandlikova played Sunday in the Avon Cup at Marco Island, Fla. Tournament director John Korff said persons who present stubs from tonight's matches will be admitted free to Tuesday afternoon's matches.
Top-seeded Chris Evert Lloyd will play her first match Tuesday night at 7 against the winner of today's meeting between Kathy Horvath and Michelle Torres, who reached the semifinals at Marco Island. Second-seeded Andrea Jaeger, the winner Sunday over Mandlikova, also will play Tuesday night against today's winner between Barbara Hallquist and Mary Lou Piatek.
