Renee Richard makes a lot of news-12 pages worth in fact, as the local newspaper has a spread on her. 2,300 come out for the early Stove-Bueno match. Over 4,000 for the finals. Billie Jean King once again beats Martina Navratilova in a tight quarterfinal, breaking at 5-4 for the match. Her wins over Fromholtz and Stove were easier. The win over Stove lasted less than an hour. King declared she was "fully recovered and back to her best for again."

King moved up to 4th on the Colgate list.

King wins her third straight event. An early test came vs Kristien Shaw, a 2 hr 20 marathon. King's win streak looked done for in the semis, as Betty Stove had racked up a 4-1 third set lead over a disoriented Billie Jean. Somehow King gritted it out, exclaiming later, "My attitude stunk. My concentration kept fading in and out and I couldn't force myself to take control." Going into the Colgate Masters King is the hottest player on the circuit.

Top seed Martina Navratilova withdrew due to a sore shoulder.

re: 1977 results

Week of October 31-November 6

Colgate Masters, Mission Viejo, California, US

Dates: November 1-6.
Surface: Hard/Cement

Format: Round robin format with winners from both groups in the final.

Red Group

Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Virginia Wade (GB) , Dianne Fromholtz (Aus)

Fromholtz d. Evert 7-6 6-4
Wade d. Navratilova 7-6 7-5
Evert d. Navratilova 6-4 6-1
Evert d. Wade 1-6 6-4 6-4
Navratilova d. Fromholtz 6-4 3-6 6-3
Wade d. Fromholtz 7-5 6-4

*Evert (2-1) advances to final over Wade (also 2-1) due to thier head to head encounter in the round robin.

Blue Group

Betty Stove (Neth), Billie Jean King, Kerry Reid (Aus), Wendy Turnbull (Aus)
King d. Turnbull 6-3 6-2
Reid d. Stove 6-2 6-3
Turnbull d. Stove 7-6 6-2
King d. Reid 7-6 4-6 6-1
King d. Stove 6-2 6-3
Reid d. Turnbull 6-4 6-2

*King advances to final with 3-0 record.

Final

Chris Evert d. Billie Jean King 6-2 6-2

Doubles (Draw=4)

1R:
1R:

FI: Francoise Durr/Virginia Wade d. ????

The Red Group is quite loaded with the consensus top three players for the year. Fromholtz surprises Evert, but Chrissie then beats Navratilova, Wade and King to complete her year of supremacy. At the year’s end, King is playing like the 2nd best player in the world and she defeats Reid in a 3 setter to claim the Blue Group. The Evert-Wade encounter is the match of the event.

Wade jumps out to an early lead. In the second set she is so contentious over a line call that the crowd switches sides and supports Evert. Ginny said afterwards that "I cooked my own goose". Evert had a Cheshire cat-like grin on her face, relishing victory.

King defeat in the final breaks her 18 match win streak

ends November 7 River Plate Championships, Buenos Aires, Argentina (Clay)

Prize Money= $10,000

Singles (Draw=at least 17)


2R: Renee Richards (US) d. Susanna Villavende 6-0 6-3

QF: Madruga [Q] d Casabianca 6-1 6-1

SF: Madruga [Q] d Nagleson 6-3 6-3

FI: Renee Richards (US) d Ivanna Madruga [Q] 4-6 6-2 6-2

16 year old Madruga storms into the final as a qualifier. Her game is a curious mix of high bounding topsin mixed in with drop shots. Richards uses power to overcome a relative lack of mobility due to her age (42). Madruga said afterwards: "I felt that I was playing against a man".

*Gonzalez also listed as Gonzalez Loccicero in the NYT.

re: 1977 results

Week of November 7-13

November 9-11 Wightman Cup ,San Francisco, California, US (Indoors)

United States d, Great Britain 7-0

Day 1: (November 9)

Chris Evert d Virginia Wade (GB) 7-5 7-6 (7-3)
Billie Jean King d Sue Barker (GB) 6-1 6-4

Day 2: (November 10)

Rosie Casals d Michelle Tyler (GB) 6-2 3-6 6-4
Billie Jean King/Joanne Russell d Lesely Charles/Sue Mappin (GB) 6-0 6-1

Day 3 (November 11)

Billie Jean King d Virginia Wade (GB) 6-4 3-6 8-6
Chris Evert d Sue Barker (GB) 6-1 6-2
Rosie Casals/Chris Evert d Sue Barker/Virginia Wade (GB) 6-2 6-4


7,351 come out on night one. Barker, who had been out 3 weeks from anemia, can't put up much of a fight. Wade more than makes up for it though, as she hurls herself at the net. It's nip and tuck all the way. Virginia hits an ace to get to 3-4 in the tiebreak, but errors and Evert passing shots end an entertaining match.

4,814 attend the second night. The US clinches the Cup by taking both matches for a 4-0 lead.

A sellout of 11,317 comes out on the star-studded third night.

FI: Abandoned due to rain, each team (Kerry Reid/Greer Stevens and Evonne Goolagong/Betty Stove [2]) received $4,500.

Evonne Goolagong sweeps all before her in winning her first significant tournament in over a year. Now a mother, both press and public welcome her back to her home country. In the quarters Terry Holladay was ahead 3-1 in the last set. The Gong pulled up to 3 all when rain came. The next day Evonne barely clipped Holladay 6-4, went on beat Dianne Fromholtz after a two hour rest, and swamped #2 seed Kerry Reid 6-1 6-3.

"I was so surprised I even made the final", a humble Evonne declared, "but to win such a big tournament my first time back was beyonf my wildest dreams."

9,000 show for the quarters, the biggest crowd of the week. More might have come for the last two rounds, both affected by heat and rain.

Rain delayed the event-the women's final played on a Monday. Temps were torrid-120 F in the semis where Wendy Turnbull upset Sue Barker. Manwhile Goolagong dismantled Stove. Evonne after her semi win: "I didn't expect to win last week in Sydney and I'm just as surprised to be in the final this time. But if you will excuse the expression, Betty played bloody awful."

Boshoff, only 21, announces her retirement at the start of te week and then wins the tournament! Ranked #50, she just missed being seeded. Victory is especially sweet as she blew a 5-0 40-0 led the previous year vs Val Ziegenfuss. Linky will study Computer Science at Port Elizabeth University.

Nancy Richey sheds tears when a shot 6 inches long isn't called in the tiebreak. Nancy was up 4-3 in the tiebreak when she was robbed, and was so upset she never won another point in the tiebreak and meekly went out.

The men's and ladies finals were held on Tuesday night.

FI: Billie Jean King (US)/Renata Tomavova (Cz) [2] d. Betty Steve (Neth)/Virginia Wade [1] 6-2 6-3


This event is a joint effort at a rare women's only in Europe. Sponsored by Wimbledon referee Mike Gibson and King Enterprises, which is run by Billie Jean's husband Larry. Rosie Casals and Laura DuPont are late withdrawals.

Virginia Wade is feted royally by the British Press, this being her first return to Britain since winning Wimbledon. She is also on television in a program called "This is Your Life." Ginny play throughout the week is spotty, perhaps drained by the emotion and the end of the season.

Billie Jean King survived Betty Stove yet again in the semis. The tall Dutch woman has pushed the Old lady to 3 sets several times this season but can't put her away. The trend continues here, as a missed volley and a double fault aid King on taking the final set 6-3.

Wade puts up a fight in a final that is one-sided-going all Billie Jean Kings way. King ends the year winning the last 27 of her 28 matches. The lone check against her is losing to Chris Evert at the Colgate Masters.

The final is the only sell-out of the week with 2,000 fans. The event is not continued the next year.

Evonne is finally seeded where she should be, at #1. Nothing can stop her, not a cold nor Sue Barker, who manages only 6 points against Evonne's serve the whole match.

American Mona Guerrant causes a stir by getting coaching from her husband via a transister headset during changovers. Sue Barker beats her her a close quarterfinal.

Draw Note: Pat Bostrom listed as "Trish" Bostrom by Dolan

re: 1977 results

Your work is much appreciated Declan-thanks!

There is a lot of work still to be done, but in the main the outline of 1977 (which events were held in week order from January to December) is up. Most events have some information for later rounds.
