FI Fry d. Gibson 4-6 9-7 8-6

Mary Hawton was upset about being only seeded 7th when she was the title-holder and ranked #3 Australian woman in 1955. "The only player seeded above me who has beaten me this year is Mary Carter" she said. Her seeding meant she was matched against Shirley Fry and though disappointed she acknowledged "Miss Fry was far too good for me".

In the twice-interrupted (rain) singles final, Gibson was foot-faulted 21 times. After one call, she slammed a ball into the members' reserve, where it hit LTAV vice-president Mr T Evans, who was sitting just a few feet away from the Prime Minister. When Gibson apologies, Evans smiled and lifted his hat in acknowledgement. Some sections of the crowd booed the linesmen and yelled 'give her a go', requiring the umpire to appeal for silence.
