* Virginia wins her only Grand Slam singles title in a French Open that is void of some of the world's top players such as Chris Evert. But is still a premiere clay court event with most of Europe's best clay courters competing. She avenged her final round loss at the German Open to Jausevec by defeating the defending champion for the coveted French crown. Virginia would follow her excellent European clay court season by reaching the QF of both the US Open and Wimbledon.
