Junior Final
Jan Lehane d. Betty Holstein 7-5 6-1

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. Seeney also had back problems and Penrose was in a car accident the week before. Thelma Long had a recurring back injury and scratched, but 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

Event known as "the Little Wimbledon South America". In the 2R Hernandez saves 2 match points from 1-5 15-40 in the last set. Semis played at night under the lights in the spanking new stadium of 4,000. The "Golden Goddess" Fageros is dating Budge Patty, a perpetual American playboy who prefers the Riviera and Paris to the US. The second semi is a shocker as Hopps recovers from 3-5 in the third to upset Gibson, who is bothered by the lights. Big al's normally sound volley is "totally off". It's Althea first defeat since early 1957, when Shirley Fry beat her in Australia.

In the final the "Pony Tail" (hopps) beat the "Little Saber" (Bueno) taking a few tumbles on the red clay as she chases down shots. it was Janet's best week ever.

Bueno takes the first set of her semi vs. Hard hitting Fleitz. The Latin sensation dares tro hit drop shots from behind the baseline for winners before running out of steam. Speaking od steam-the final was contested under a blazing sun.
Althea faces an opponent who "never let up for a minute and kept going for winners." Fleitz led 5-4 and 6-5 in the second set, dropping serve both times through nerves and double faults. The third time she serves for the match she holds.

Player Sissy Leach let the chmps have it with both barrels, writng, "From a player's viewpoint the 1958 South African Chmps hit an all-time low. There were even fewer umpires than in previous years.less ball boys, more bad decisions, and atrocious catering facilities. The players were contantly criticized for the slightest show of temperament, although officails were not adverse to acting like prima donnas." Examples: 2 umpires stormed off court after aguing-with a linesman! One match was delayed for over 15 minutes while someone was found to umpire. The women's doubles semi was being played on center court when officials told the girls to leave at 1-0. The girls refused at first , demanding the umpire, leaving only when he couldn't be found after several minutes.

Carr "produced the upset of the year" in beating #1 seed Brough-and this on Ellis Park's fast courts, which normally suits Lousie's game. In both the semis and the finals Bernice won due to "her fighting spirit, her concentration, and her tenacity, for her stroke play is very limited." Segal lost after having two match points in the second set.

"Tell mom I won't be home for Easter"--Janet Hopps, after upsetting Gibson for the second time in 1958 on clay. Hopps had planned on flying back home to the West coast, but happiliy cancelled her flight.
Gibson "who appeared to be nervous, committed several errors." In the finals Bueno's masterful volleys and overheads barely edge out Mimi.

Reasonable expenses had been promised before."

Yola Ramirez won't be inviting Italian Lazzarino out any time soon. When Yola rolled her ankle at 2-4 in the first set Silvana requested a default while the Mexican was being taped up. "Ramirez protested the granting of a default, and she stayed on the court although ballboys, umpire and her opponent had left. Finally, after a 40 minute discussion, the referee granted Yola the right to continue." The feisty senorita won.

The Roman crowd is delighted with Bueno and her attacking style. They are so much in her favor that they cheer when Bloomer made errors in the semis. Shirley led 6-3 3-0 when things fell apart for her. Even so she got to match point at 5-4, but a Bueno overhead saves the day. Bloomer has two more match points at 5-2 in the third, both saved by Bueno volley winners. Even the women's final is often played on an outside court, but Maria's final is put on center court.

-------------------------------------------------------
American dominance is fading fast. Only 2 American women are among the 16 seeds in this incredibly international field. South American women from Chile, Uraguay, and Brazil are entered, with all eyes on rising star Maria Bueno, who beat world #1 Althea Gibson on clay early in the season. Gibson is not here defending. During the French she is playing in England in an effort to win her first Wimbledon.

Kormoczy is a popular winner. Suzy first came to international atention at age 14, winning many matches in England in 1938. Her lone slam victory makes her big star in Hungary. Her style uses "clever little drop shots with a deep heavily sliced backhand". In the final the 31 year old is the underdog vs. defending champ Bloomer. Kormoczy resorts to drop shots in the second set to tire out the Brit, running away with the third set. Suzy credits a fitness regimen (which includes gymnastics) for her victory. It's the younger woman who runs out of gas in the third set, never recovering from an 0-5 deficit.

Crowds respond to the Latin flair of Maria Bueno. WT says of her that "She is not beautiful, but she possesses a pantherish grace ...Her game is quite lethal, her second serve hit as hard as the first. " Maria is prone to lapses in form, going off the boil for games at a time. Bloomer took advantage of a such a fall in form in their semi. "The match produced one of the worst displays of sportsmanship ever seen. Maria took 5 minutes to reach the net to shake hands, and then did so in such a half-hearted manner that she was booed by the center court crowd."

Early round attention is focused on Karol Fageros "who costumes have captivated French fans". Unfortunately for both Karol and the French she made an early exit. Her gold lamé panties will not be allowed at Wimbledon. Charming Mexican Rosie Reyes announces her engagement to Frenchman Pierre Darmon.

Tiny Mexican spitfires Ramirez and Reyes win as doubles champs. "They literally sparkle. Their play is highlighted by giggles, little screams of anguish when a close one goes out, and an angry stamp of the foot by Yola" when she commits an error.

Christine becomes a British darling for life by single-handedly prying the Americans hands off the Wightman Cup. For 21 straight times the Yanks had won the Cup.

First match up on opening day saw Gibson "pasting Miss Bloomer's second serves along the lines" to open with the usual American onslaught. Truman's power baseline game draws Britain even at 1-1 as Knode fails to draw her into her usual errors off the backhand. The day ends on a note of excitement on two fronts-a surprise British victory and an article of clothing.

Shirley Bloomer's slip falls down while serving, prompting plenty of wolf whisltles in the crowd of 10,000.

She tosses the slip to the sidelines and ends the game with an ace!

Knode gets the US at 2-2 the next day. Surely the US would pull ahead with world champ Althea. It looked in the the bag as Big Al won the first set 6-2. Then came the turnaround. Chistine smacked down the line forehands for winners with the crowd "by now nearly hysterical", firmly in her corner. 'A horde of schoolchildren, here to cheer on thie idol, was squeling and tossing straw hats in the air, and the umpire had to call for order." When Truman took the match "there was pandemonium in the stands".

Haydon chops off both sides "and covers the net like an angry octopus" when she manages to get there. The "ding-dong baseline match" took 2 hours. In the end Ann had a little too much variety for timy Mimi Arnold, whose mother Ethel Arnold played the Wightman Cup in 1935. Haydon ventures up to net the last 3 games and clinches the Cup.

-------------------------------------------------
"Nobody seriously considered the chance of Althea losing her title", but several up and coming young ladies made it an eventful Wimbledon. Christine Truman was seeded #2 on the strength of her upset win over Gibson in Wightman Cup before the Championships. Add in "Brazilian bombshell" Maria Bueno, appearing in her first Wimbledon, and it made for an interesting event. Karol Fageros got attention for her platinum blonde hair and gold panties, but the #8 seed was bounced early.

In the Quarters
Bloomer graps a 2-0 led in the third before Althea snaps off 6 straight games for the match. The amazing burst took only 9 minutes. Gibson's doubles partner was not so lucky, as Ann Jones removed Maria Bueno in the day's major upset. Fellow Brit Anglea Mortimer makes the semis by beating veteran Margaret Dupont, the Wightman Cup captain who entered Wimbledon "as a afterthought".

The semis are a bunch of firsts--the first time a Hungarian (Kormoczy) is in the semis, the first time 2 British girls are in the semis since before WW2, the first time only 1 American is in the semis in heaven knows how long. What should have been exciting tennis instead gave the crowd two routs-though at least Mortimer's destruction of Kormoczy pleased the fans. Angela wasn't given much hope "agains tthe Hungarian typist", but the tiny Suzy is 34 and at her best on clay, not grass. "Mort" becomes the first unseeded finalist since 1938, and Britain's first finalist since 1939.


Unseeded Mortimer had beaten Gibson 3 of 4 times in previous meetings, but in the final Gibson prevailed despite being continually called for foot faults.

Angela makes the tall American fight for every game. She even got to set point at 5-4 with a beautiful lob over Gibson's head and the deft drop volley on the weak reply. "Miss Gibson did what she had to: she pulled out the big shot. A crosscourt forehand rocketed into the corner. She was saved."

Gibson nearly won a triple by taking the doubles with Bueno, but she fell in her third final of the day as darkness fell on centre court.

The All-England Club got sokme flak for bering cheap-60 or the 79 British "home" players signed a petition urguing Wimbledon to give them free tickets, lunches, and parking, perks currently only extended to foreigners. Joan Curry: "Mo where are players treeated so meanly as here."

Behind 6-3 5-2 30-30 and only two points from defeat, Karol fought back after Knode missed a smash. Dottie takes the third though. Overall attendence is down even though the finals are not televised [ this suggests previous finals WERE on TV]

A classic final between age vs. Youth, serve and volley vs. hard hitting baseline shots. Sally also has a big serve for a junior, which keeps it close right up til the end. Over 2,500 crowd in, some sitting on the edges of the grass court. With a crowd cheering on Moore, who rallies form 0-4 in the decider, Althea hits a marvelous drop volley on match point. Sally charges forward, but her reply is "not up".

The doubles went to an unseeded team for "the first time in memory" (ever?). Incredibly, it's Darlene Hard's first event of the summer. The Pomona Premed student has been concentrating on her studies this spring and teaching a summer camp in Massachuesetts while Wimbledon wasa going on! As a result she will be unseeded at Forest Hills despite being a Wimbledon RU in 1957.

Gibson threatened not to play Longwood unless Bueno was her partner.

Final Althea Gibson[1] d. Darlene Hard 3-6 6-1 6-2

As is customary at Forest Hills;21 juniors filled out the draw. With only Knode and Haydon (both good players but neither with a major grass final under her belt) on the bottom half the draw was very unbalanced. Unseeded Jeanne Arth and Darlene Hard marched through to the semis, Arth accounting for Knode and Hard for Haydon. In their semi Hard's "more forceful personaility won her the set and the match."

Truman makes Althea work in their QF, but Althea proves to be quicker about the court. She's not quick enough tomake fans happy however, as "her deliberate slow-motion tactics between points and games,
and especially her service delivery, did not endear her to the gallery."

Bev Fleitz and Maria Bueno are expected to produce a good match in the quarters, but an in the zone Bev "is at her best, and when Bev is at her best" watch out. Even Mo Connolly at her peak was crushed by Fleitz in full flight. "It was a glorious display of unbridled hitting..judged on this form, Bev is the best player in the world. She literally swept the Brazilian senorita off the courts."

All Bev's form was gone in the semis-she was "as poor against Althea as she had been good vs. Bueno".
With Althea "playing like a world champion " what could have been "the match of the year" was a blowout.

Before the final USTA officals warn Althea Gibson NOT to sit dwon before changeovers. She informs them she will sit in a chair between odd games, daring them to take action. She sat on a rosin box near the umpires chair.

Hard entertains the finals crowd by taking a well earned set off the world #1. Gibson then turns on the pressure-hitting an amazing series of lobs early in the third that remove any doubts about the outcome.
1-2-3-4-five perfect lobs go over Darlene's head and raise chalk or fall within inches of the baseline.

As she accepts the trophy Gibson announces she is retiring for one year to pursue a singing career. In fact, it's her farewell to big time tennis-she makes a very brief comeback to amateur tennis in 1959 before turning pro. In the US the womens final is televised-with don Budge commentating.

Hawton survived a mp in her 2R match.

Homegirl Karen Hantze is the sensation of the event. She turns 16 on opening day, then proceeds to upset the #2 and #3 seeds before bowing out to hard hitting baseliner Fleitz. A packed house sees the youngster "put on a daring display of net-rushing tactics to tie the score at 5-5" after being 1-6 1-5 down. "Karen survived four match points, the last one an out of this world volley of one of Beverley's stinging left handed forehands." The vet holds on to win, but Karen's performance makes her one to watch for the future.

In this year Ramirez is written 18 times Ramereiz or Rameriz or Rameriez. It's need correct them.
