Draw notes:

The official Australian Open site lists Decker's partner as Dorothy Linde.
The official Australian Open site lists McCamley's partner as Margaret O'Donnell.

The official site is not 100% correct. It fails to take into account the foreign seeding used. For example, #1 foreign seed Redick-Smith is turned into the #9 seed!

L Taylor=Helen Taylor
F Martin=Mary Martin
Mrs R Baker=Alison Baker
----------------------------------------------------
Summary:

Long won her second title at the age of 35. The South African ladies, Mesdames Wiplinger and Redick-Smith were the foreign contingent that year. They reached the final of the doubles but were disappointing in the singles.Wipplinger was defeated in an early round by teenager Mary Carter while Redick-Smith after barely beating Fay Muller (she survived 3 match points) lost to reigning Australian junior champion Jenny Staley 8-10 7-5 3-6. Staley the most improved player in Australia, tore through Mary Hawton in the semifinals.Long thrashed Nell Hopman 6-0 6-0 in the quarterfinals and was too solid and experienced for Mary Carter in the semifinals.

Staley was too nervous to do herself full justice in the final. And Long gave her no chance to recover her composure, denying her the unforced errors or easy winners which might have enabled her to get back into the match. Long was like a stern headmistress as she handed out a 6-3 6-4 lesson to a disconsolate Staley.

Watching the match in his army uniform was Staley's boyfriend, Lew Hoad, on leave from national service training. Lew, after his recent victories in the Davis Cup was a national hero. His presence, and the conjecture about his relationship with Staley were said to have contributed to her inability to produce her stylish best.

Summary:

Beryl Penrose was the champion of Australia in 1955 in Adelaide. Her most difficult match was an 8-6 in the third win against the accomplished Mary Hawton. Long, Carter and Staley progressed to the semifinals also. Staley hit many picturesque shots against Penrose, but the Sydney player grafted harder and picked up points by running Staley wide on the forehand winning 6-4 8-6. Thelma Long never let Carter into the other semifinal winning 6-1 6-1. Penrose learned the lessons well from the Long-Carter semi. Anything loose or short from Long, Penrose pounced on it, hitting deep hard drives and following them into the net. Long was never allowed to get into a groove, never permitted to dominate the forecourt. Penrose adhered assiduously to her game plan, her concentration never faltered, and she was rewarded with the title, 6-4 6-3, bringing a close the two decades of Bolton-Long hegemony.

Beryl was an automatic selection for 1955 touring team, which included Staley, Muller, Carter and Adrian Quist as manager. Beryl won two of the 4 tournaments the team participated on the continent and reached the quarters of Wimbledon as the seventh seed. She fell to Louise Brough who won her 4th title that year.

The big story of the women's touring team occurred just before Wimbledon, when Jenny Staley 'snuk-off' unbeknown to Adrian Quist and secretly married Lewis Alan Hoad. Quist was of course furious that he hadn't been told, and so was Sir Norman Brookes back home in Melbourne. Brookes was especially irate with Harry Hopman, manager of the men's team, who had connived the ceremony. It was great stuff and the newspapers had a field day when the story broke.

The Aussie tennis officials discouraged their romance, but the pair married anyway in secret on the eve of Wimbledon. This illicit romance and the men's action overshadows the local women's event.

Tall trim Penrose upsets favored Long in the finals.

-----------------------------------------
Summary:

The first Aussie ever in Brisbane and a disaster by all accounts. The center court was the wrong dimensions, player complaints were numerous, and controversy raged daily.

The first big upset of the 1956 women's singles in Brisbane was the thrashing which was inflicted upon title holder Beryl Penrose in the quarterfinals by local girl Daphne Seeney. Penrose was all at sea on the heavy court and found herself becalmed by the dropshots and placements of the awkward lefthander 2-6 1-6. Not that losing to Seeney was a disgrace, she toured with the overseas team, a runnerup at Wimbledon doubles. She eventually married South African Davis Cup player Trevor Fancutt, settled in Queensland and raise a whole family of tennis players.

Long defeated Muller, Carter defeated Loris Nichols and Hawton won over Lorraine Coghlan with unusual scoreline of 0-6 6-0 6-3 to reach the semis.

Hawton was then involved in another bizarre match, against Long in the semifinals. Hawton won the first 9 games, Long the next 9, and then the real tussle began. In the final set Long had match points at 5-4, but could not put Hawton away. Hawton led 7-6 but on a crucial point missed the line by inches with a backhand volley. The ghost of a chance quickly slipped away and Long was through 0-6 6-3 9-7.

Officials attempted to relegate the Carter-Seeney semifinal to an outside court to clear a backlog of matches, but the girls wouldn't have a bar of it. A decade or so before the modern Women's Liberation Movement caught on, the girls stood up for their rights and insisted that the public was waiting for them to play on centre court where they had been scheduled, and that was where they would play. Furthermore they insisted that Long had the advantage of getting used to the centre court and it would be unfair to the winner of their match to be denied such an opportunity. Carter and Seeney refused to leave center court when the President of the Queensland LTA demanded they leave to make way for a men's match. The sight of Big Bill Edwards, 20 stone, trying to herd the two women to an outside court remains vivid for those who witnessed the comical stand-off. The overweight official waddled on court to the amusement of the gallery. The women delayed, refusing to go to an outside court. When finally shooed off, the two ladies barricaded themselves in the locker room, in effect daring the officials to default them.

Finally the ladies were allowed to finish their match the next day-- on center court.

In Seeney's case it was a matter of winning the battle and losing the war. Halfway through the 2nd set, just when she seemed she was getting into the match, she dislocated her right knee. She insisted on continuing with it heavily strapped and even succeeded in winning a few games before Carter finished off the match 6-3 7-5.

Despite losing to Long in the semifinals in the last two Australian titles, Carter was optimistic of a positive outcome as Brisbane turned on one of it's hottest and most humid days and she hoped that the 17 years difference between ages may be a telling factor. The longer the match went on the better Carter's chances become. Long won the first 6-3 but in the 2nd started to limp noticeably because of blisters. Carter won the 2nd and took a 5-3 lead in the third. Always dangerous when cornered, Long battled back to reach match point at 6-5. Carter remained calm, volleyed her way out of trouble and eventually prevailed 9-7 in the third.

It was discovered before finals day that the service box on center court was 25 inches short on one end. The players had complained throughout the event but organizers had refused to measure the court. Only after reporters snuck onto the court and measured it were Queensland officals pressured into admitting their error and fixing the court.

Even the finals produced controversy, as they were held on a Sunday. Churches protested, but the first Sunday finals went ahead.

Draw notes:

Delys Blackburn listed as "Dallas" Blackburn by Aussie site.
Mary Carter=Reitano
Jennifer Hoad=Staley. She married Aussie great Lew Hoad.
Thelma Long is doing an indoor circuit in Europe.
J Shearer=Jan Shearer
Southam=married name of Nichols (who played Wimbledon)
Judy Tegart's first Aussie Open. She played into the 1970s-her last Aussie in 1977.

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

Summary:

The only Aussie ever entered by Fry and Gibson. Fry's win made her one of the few women ever to win all 4 slams in singles or doubles. She met the man she would marry in Australia and retired in 1957, leaving the circuit to the domination of Gibson. Althea's loss denies her winning all 4 slams.

A winner of the other three grand slams, 30 year old Shirley Fry won the Australian title. Known as a backcourt retriever who won her matches by plucky persistence, intense concentration and consistency, Fry had developed a more varied, penetrating and complete game by teaming up in doubles with Doris Hart a few years before. No one played the game with greater zest and sporting spirit, and her broad grin and general affability was popular with crowds.

These championships were the first in Australia to be the subject of television transmissions. The first pictures were beamed around Melbourne on 19 January 1957 and one of the exploits undertaken by the new medium to demonstrate it's expertise was a live cross to Kooyong for the tennis.

Touring with Althea Gibson, both reached the final. They had played a titanic match in the Victorian singles final with Fry coming through 4-6 9-7 8-6, after Gibson held match points in the both second and third sets and had squandered a 5-1 lead in the third. It was because Gibson seemed to have a mental block about beating Fry, that Fry went into the final as favorite. Both reached the final over the local competition in straight sets.

Fry had been a top player for years, whilst Gibson had arrived on the scene fairly recently, as she had been forced due to socio-economic reality to delay her introduction to top class tennis. This inexperience told in the final. Being called a number of times (7 in all) for foot faulting seemed to upset her concentration. Fry was running down everything as usual and thriving on unforced errors by Gibson at crucial stages. Fry's greater experience was the deciding factor in a 6-3 6-4 victory. The Aussie crowd of 7,000 favored Gibson. Fry retired shortly after her win, married, and despite rumors she would settle in Australia, settled in the US.

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

Summary:


Throughout the summer of 1957/58 England's Angela Mortimer and Victorian Lorraine Coghlan battled it out in the finals of the various state championships. They were crowd pleasing matches, characterised by hard hitting rallies and long baseline duels in which the sounder stroke production of the Australian was pitted against the tactical sense of the shrewd Englishwoman. Coming into the Australian singles it was two titles each.

Mortimer and Coghlan were ruthless in their way to the final, both not losing a set. The only highlights of the tournament was the younger brigade of Australians, Margot Rayson and Betty Holstein making their way into the quarterfinals. Rayson lost to Coghlan however Holstein surprised Mary Hawton 6-4 in the third before being thrashed by Mortimer.

Coghlan got off to a good start in the final establishing a 3-1 lead. But her first serve was not functioning at its best and Mortimer gradually capitalised with some highly effective drives. Mortimer seemed the more purposeful; the match was always close, but the vital points went Mortimer's way for a 6-3 6-4 victory.

Many top Aussie women defaulted. Long had a recurring back injury. Seeney also had back problems and Penrose was in a car accident the week before.

Nearing 40, Thelma stuck around in the doubles after defaulting her singles. It's her last Aussie title (the first was in the 1936) she collects her 12th doubles crown in an upset over the top seeds.

Draw Notes:

Some confusion over name of Marion Beinke, pronounced 'Ben-Kee" Her name is confirmed and is not "Burke" or "Bink" (Thanks to Gee Tee for providing this information)

Yvonne Johnson=Mrs W Johnson
-----------------------------------------

Summary:

World top tenners South Africans Reynolds and Schuurman added interest to the field, but neither wins the title, as Reitano upsets Schuurman in the final. Mary's slice backhand and drop shot do the most damage. On the way to her win Mary beats little known Margaret Smith, competing in her first Aussie. It's the only time Smith will EVER lose in the Aussie before the quarters.

The heat was on, as temps were as high as 107 in the shade and 120 on court. Spectators abandoned the stands in droves, with the hardy few sweating it out from under bleachers or wide hats. Only the finals drew a decent crowd of 7,000.

Lehane is top seed for the Juniors and and #5 seed among women at age 17. Her coach is Vic Edwards (later coach of Evonne Goolagong) and she is considered Australia's future, crushing then unknown future great Margaret Smith (Court) in the juniors final 6-0 6-1. Her win over top seed Reynolds in the quarters is the shock of the event.

Draw notes:

Slated to start on January 22; the first day was totally rained out.

F Hall is the only female we lack a first name for.
Reitano = nee Mary Carter
Robberds also listed as Roberts by the NYT. Robberds is correct.
Mrs J Robinson= nee Lorraine Coughlan
N. Turner = Noelene sister of Lesley
-----------------------------------------

Summary:

Maria Bueno's plans for a Grand Slam go up in smoke as Margaret Smith produces passing shots "not seen since Mo Connolly" to beat her. Just a couple of weeks before in Adelaide Smith had manged only 3 games vs. The Senorita.

Margaret sped to a 5-2 lead in the third by mixing in deadly passing shots ans strong serve. Both discouraged Bueno from seeking the net. As if the senorita didn't have enough to worry about her right hand began to cramp. When Maria dramatically fell reaching for a volley the match appeared in the bag as Smith led 5-2. The youngster got nervous however, and the world #1 pulled up to 4-5 before Smith won as a Bueno backhand hit the tape on the third match point.

The second shock comes in ther semis when Jan Lehane takes out the second foreign favoite Christine Truman. Ambulance attendents treat Jan for heat exhaustion in the second set after she collapsed in the dressing room during the break. She overcomes both the 100 degree heat and Christine, who cries with pain due to leg cramps at 5-6 in the decider

Searing heat (sometimes over 100) was present all week. The frying pan-like conditions contributed to the second shock-as Jan Lehane took out #2 seed Christine Truman. Jan Lehane had to be revived by ambulance attendants after losing the second set of her semi to Truman. The women took their ten minute break as is customary here. Lehane fainted when she reached the dressing room. Truman also got assistance courstside from the very same crew in the 11th game of the deciding set. Christine cries from painful leg cramps at 5-6.

It wasn't only women who suffered from heat exhaustion-Neale Fraser also collapsed after the men's final.

The Aussie press debated what the upsets of the world's #1 and #2 players meant. Was this the start of an Aussie golden age in women's tennis, or merely Bueno and Truman wilting in tropical heat? Margaret Smith proved the superior player vs lehane in the final. At the time no one could predict that Smith wouldn't lose a singles again in this event until 1968.

Turner wins the junior girls final over Smith. Lacking financial support, Smith doesn't make an international tour this year.

Feminism has come to Australia. The women decided as a group to lock themselves in their dressing room (see 1956 notes) until given a decent share of matches on center court. "It was led by Mary Reitano, normally the quietest little mouse around." The tournament committee reconsidered allocation of matches.

Temps averaging 105 to 107 Farenheit kept fans away. By day 5 only 500 had paid to see the action. Lesley Turner was ordered by her doctor to withdraw from heat exhaustion.

The heat for the semis was especially brutal-125 degrees.

Margaret Smith (Court) demonstrates 1960 was no fluke by repeating. She will now join Lehane, Turner and a couple other girls in an overseas tour. Blisters on her feet hurt Lehane in the final. Margaret served ball after ball out wide to Jan's two handed backhand-hitting any returns into the open court.

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

Draw Notes:

Seeds #9-16 come from the Australian site. One problem is they list two #13 seeds, Blackman and Robinson. The #11 seed is missing. Clearly this is in error. Were there seeds at all? The byes suggest it is possible, yet the NYT calls Marsh "unseeded".

THe NYT and World Tennis lists Tegart's partner as Fay (nee Muller) Robinson, not Lorraine (nee Coghlan, who also wed a Mr Robinson), the name the Aussie web site uses.
The New York Times calls Judith Robinson "Jenny"

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

Summary:

Smith (later Court) easily wins her 3rd consecutive Aussie, dropping only 16 games in 5 matches. The public is disappointed that the American rival Darlene Hard didn't make the finals, as she and Margaret have a bitter rivalry. Finalist Jan Lehane is the first top ten female with a two-handed (or two fisted as it's called in the 60's) backhand.

Smith and Lehane play the first ever ladies slam final at night under lights. It lasts only 35 minutes.

Mary Reitano retires after this slam. The Aussies nicknamed her "Miss Poker face", and she won 2 Aussies in her career.

Ebbern and Smith take the doubles in a surprise. Darlene Hard and Yola Ramirez had partnered each other on the Aussie circuit until the championships. The doubles final was the first ever slam title match decided under lights. Rain had dictated the move. The slippery court also led Darlene to use spikes to avoid slipping and falling on the grass. Ebbern and Smith directed thier attack at the softer hitting Reitano.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes:

The greatest Aussie yet due to the record number of foreigners in Oz to play in the Fed Cup, held right before the Open. The women were usually treated as second class at the Aussie, but Smith(later Court) versus Bueno drew a record crowd of 10,000.
Interest was so high it was played last AFTER the men's final.
At 2-2 in the third Bueno turned her ankle, but fought on. At 2-5
Maria fell down in a cramp. "For what seemed like an eternity no one moved to assist"(touching her meant automatic default) but Margaret Smith ran to her aid when it was obvious she was finished.

The Japanese send a squad for the first time in 30 years.

Kerry Melville won the Junior girls final over Helen Gourlay 6-1 6-1.

Niesson=Mastoff
Darmon=Reyes
Keller=Catt

-----------------------------------------
Draw Notes:

P Hart=Julie Hart

Fay Muller now appears under her maiden name. Was she divorced or widowed from the previous year?

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

Summary:

3 British gals are the only foreigners-and #4 seed Christine Truman defaults before she plays her first match. Christine cuts short her tour due to a weight problem and returns to Britain. Truman pays her own way around the world.

Searing heat early on (it topped 100 F) gave way to cooler temps. Players were unwilling to play night matches as a means of catching up.

Lehane loses in the finals to Smith for the 4th year in a row despite the crowd cheering for her. Smith was under a lot of pressure due to a controversy with the Aussie LTA (Lawn Tennis Association). In 1962 Smith refused to tour with chaperone Nell Hopman and the other Aussie girls. It was so bad at one point she was preparing to emigrate to New Zealand. Finally the LTA let the "rebel" make a private overseas tour, where Hopman had the other Aussie girls shun her. Smith's reaction was to practice with the men. Smith also won the doubles and mixed for a triple crown. She and Fletcher would capture the mixed grand slam in 1963.

Draw notes:

Does Wicks=M or Val Wicks? And could they be one and the same person?

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

Summary:

Poor Jan Lehane loses to Smith for the 5th straight year. Lehane and Turner have both beaten Smith on clay, but the fast grass is too much of an advantage for net-rushing Margaret.

With only 2 foreign players in the women's singles the importance of the event itself is being questioned in some quarters. Bill Edwards, President of the Queensland LTA, said that without foreign stars the championships have become "a second-rate event."

The semis in the womens singles were contested in temps of over 100 degrees.

The women's doubles saw the big upset of the event, as Judy Tegart stole the show with impressive overheads and volleys. Judy wore spikes due to the wet and slippery court. The Tegart/Turner combo had played as a team for only a month. It was the only defeat for Ebbern/Smith over the entire 1963-64 Aussie season.

Draw notes:

There were 8 domestic seeds and 8 foreign seeds.

Lea Pericoli was out a full month due to pulling her leg muscle.
Mrs P Wearne=nee Pam Southcombe

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

Summary:

The greatest Aussie yet due to the record number of foreigners in Oz to play in the Fed Cup, held right before the Open. The women were usually treated as second class at the Aussie, but Smith (later Court) versus Bueno drew a record crowd of 10,000.

Interest was so high it was played last AFTER the men's final.

At 2-2 in the third Bueno turned her ankle, but fought on. At 2-5 Maria fell down in a cramp. "For what seemed like an eternity no one moved to assist" (touching her meant automatic default) but Margaret Smith ran to her aid when it was obvious she was finished.

The Japanese send a squad for the first time in 30 years.

American Carole Graebner caused a bit of a stir by refusing to play doubles with Rosie Darmon of France, claiming that the former doubles slam champ wasn't good enough. Aussie officials had picked the pairing without consulting either player. They fianally did pair up and made a run to the semis, though one wonders what Darmon felt about the whole affair.

Carole pulled leg muscle in the round of 16 vs Jill Starr but fought on grimly to win with sheer power, hoping a day of recovery would allow it to mend. The same tactic didn't faze Van Zyl, a top tenner herself. Annette made some impossible to gets to prolong rallies. An immobile Graebner could to do nothing as she dropped almost every long point.

Billie Jean Moffitt crushed Robyn Ebbern in the QF despite serving up 8 double faults.

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

Draw notes:

6 foreign entrants in the draw of 48-with Richey and Graebner the #1 and #2 foreign seeds.

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

Summary:

Richey twisted her left knee in a doubles match. She managed to play the semi in singles while heavily bandaged, but doctors said she risked permanent damage if she played the final.

This is the only defaulted slam final in women's tennis history.

The semis were played in heavy winds, sometimes gusting up to 54 mph. Several shots were blown yards off course.

Grabner and Richey pulled off a huge feat in taking the women's doubles. tHey upset Smith and Turner-playing to Lesley as much as possible. According to the NYT "several long rallies were played entirely by Miss Turner." When Smith did get a ball she was often far below her usual form.
