1959 Results

With Althea Gibson basically giving up amateur tennis (she was to turn pro later in the year) 1959 began with the door wide open for a new champion. Into the gap stepped the lovely senorita Maria Bueno, who dazed opponents with her aggression and audiences with her daring.

Re: 1959 Results

Week of January 5-11

ends Jan 9 Coupe Pierre Gillou, Paris, FR (IN)
FI Flo de la Courtie d. Maud Galtier 6-2 3-6 7-5

The service box was shortened on purpose by 12 inches-an experiment designed to slow the fast serve and volleys of the male players.

Jan 3-10 New Zealand Nationals, Christchurch, NZ (GR)
FI Ruia Morrison d. Sonia Cox 6-3 6-3
DF Cox/Morrison d. Rennie/Davidson 6-2 6-3.

No foreigners entered on the ladies side. Ruia's had some bad luck here-in 1958 pleurisy struck her down before the final, in 1956 she appeared certain to win when a fire in the gallery halted play and she lost momentum. This time Sonia was cursed with a wrenched bicep as the Maori girl vcruised to victory.

Jan 3-11 Western Australian Chmps, Perth, AUS (GR)
QF Reynolds d. Barbara Hall 6-0 6-1, Sch d. Mrs. Pat Holmes 6-3 6-0
SF Reynolds d. Jill Langley 6-1 6-2, Schuurman d. Eva Duldig 3-6 6-3 7-5
FI Renee Schurman (SA) d. Sandra Reynolds (SA) 6-4 1-6 8-6
DF Reynolds/Schuurman d. Duldig/Helen Paterson 6-0 7-5
MX Laver/Schuurman d. Crawford/Reynolds 6-3 7-5

Duldig had 3 match points in the semis. "Both girls,the picture of beauty in their Teddy Tinling outfits, delighted the gallery with their hard hitting from either wing, although the tricky wind accounted for 15 service breaks in the match."

Jan 3-11 Manly Seaside, Sydney, AUS (GR)
FI Thelma Long d. Mary Hawton 7-5 4-6 6-3
DF Hawton/Long d. M. Fenton/Le Mercier 6-3 6-3

*Note: Lesley Turner wins girls singles, sister Noelene in singles SF.

Jan 5-11 Dixie International, Tampa, Flor, US (CL) Dr=17+
SF K d. Alice Heegewaldt [4] 5-7 6-3 7-5, M d. Marta Hernandez [2] 6-4 8-6
FI Laura Lou Kunnen [1] d. Marie Martin (Aus) [3] 6-3 8-6
DF Kunnen/Hernandez d. Flo Blanchard/Martin 6-2 6-3

Laura Lou causes a stir among the press and male fans when she wears panties that feature an embroidered Confederate Flags-two of then, one for each cheek. For a minor event it has a very international field-Heegewalkt is Chile's #1, Hernandez hails from Mexico. Flo Blanchard had more fame as a tennis umpire than player.

Jan 3-11 Phoenix Thunderbird, Scottsdale, Ariz, US (HD) Dr=17+
QF Green d. Pat Todd 10-8 6-3
SF Green d. Sally Moore 6-3 3-6 8-6, Palmer d. Karen Hantze 3-6 7-5 6-2
FI Vicky Palmer d. Barbara Green 3-6 6-1 7-5

No foreign entries.

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

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.
