Setup



Status: Fairly complete-many full draws, most results have quarters on. Gaps include February (covered in April 57 World Tennis which I'm missing). German Chmps results needed before quarters.

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.


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.

Fry-Gibson combined to win the doubles title-the blowout final took only 29 minutes.

This was Judy Tegart's first Aussie Open. She played into the 1970s-her last Aussie in 1977. Thelma Long is doing the indoor circuit in Europe.

Angela Buxton injures her wrist and flies back to England. It is put in plaster, but as the months go by it becomes obvious it will not heal. Her short career is over-the highlights being her Wimbledon final in 1956 and being Althea Gibson’s friend and doubles partner.

Shirley Fry--married and pregnant, goes out early in an upset on a windy day. This will be her final event until the late 1960s! “Some official sof the tournament expressed resentment at Shirley’s lighthearted acceptance of defeat” with the event losing it’s top seed and drawing card.
