Re: 1966 Results

Week of June 6-12

June 10-11 Wightman Cup Wimbledon (GR) United States d Great Britain 4-3
Venue: Court 1 at Wimbledon

Day 1

Ann Jones d. Nancy Richey (US) 2-6 6-4 6-3
Billie Jean King (US) d. Virginia Wade 6-2 6-3
Ann Jones/Virginia Wade d. Jane Albert/Billie Jean King (US) 7-5 6-2

Straw-hatted school girls "squeeled with delight" as Ann outlasts Nancy in "a dour match." Nancy's face was hidden under a whire visor, her leg tapped up. Richey's backhand cross bite into the court, forcing Jone back. Richey ran out 5 straights games for the first set and led 3-2. Inevitably Ann switched gears. "Up went the lobs. Over went the delicate little drop drop." When Richey got to a dropper Jones was often at the net to volley it away.

In the day's second match King had too much firepower for Wade. The doubles was a different matter. With Jones backing her up Wade thundered down overheads for winners. The Brits concentrated on breaking Albert's weak serve for the upset. "That Jones", remarked Margaret Varner, the US Captain. "A rock of Gibralter. She didn't miss more than 3 shots in the whole match."

Day 2

Winnie Shaw d. Mary Ann Eisel (US) 6-3 6-3
Nancy Richey (US) d. Virginia Wade 2-6 6-2 7-5
Billie Jean King (US) d. Ann Jones 5-7 6-2 6-3
Mary Eisel/Nancy Richey (US) d. Rita Bentley/Elizabeth Starkie 6-1 6-2

A stunning comeback by the Americans with drama galore. Shaw opens day 2 by doing what she should in a routine win-could Britain really capture the Cup? Wade, "dark and intense" has just finished her university finals earlier in the week. what she cannot do is finish off Richey. A screaming crowd wills the Brit in her 'breath-taking bid", but at 5-3 things fall apart. Ricjey hits winners and sudenly wade can hitting nothing at all. It will become a pattern she is doomed to repeat for many years ruinning.

Now for the match du jour, Jones has "won 21 matches running agains the worl's best". but grass in King's favorite surface. Having spilt sets, King asks captain Margaret Varner for salt tablets at 2-1 in the final set. Points later Billie jean goes over in pain, coming up with a limp. "Mrs King hobbled back to the baseline and served, unable to follow it in. Against aplayer of Mrs jones calibre, the result should have been a formality. Strangley, it the Brit who cracked." Some in the crowd yell "she faked the cramp! She faked the cramp!" King's response: "Unfair. I had to tough it out."
