Doubles

FI: Rosie Casals/Billie Jean King [1] d Brenda Kirk/Pat Pretorius 5-7 6-0 6-2


Draw note:
#1 seed Rosie Casals withdrew due to tendonitus but still entered the doubles. Her place in the singles draw is taken by alternate Kora Schediwy.

Some of the top women are limping into Wimbledon. #1 seed here Rosie Casals withdraws due to tendonitus. A rusty Julie Heldman plays and loses her first since dropping off tour in March to have knee surgery requiring 48 stitches. Julie led a set and 4-2-at that point the knee began to bother her. Carole Graebner, a top tenner in the mid 60s, has been suffering form a virus for over 6 weeks. "These days I'm only a good first set player" she says after losing in 3 sets to Wightman Cupper Molesworth.

Nancy Gunter has been missing from action and mysteriously withdrew from the French a few weeks back. With Wimbledon's seeding committee about to meet referee Mike Gibson calls her in Texas to confirm her entry. "I'll be there" she told him.

Overton survives a match point vs Ziegenfuss, who "mistakenly served it to her backhand, her stronger side". Val had earlier upset a moody Wade.

Wendy stretched Chris in the semis-she led a set and 2-1 when Chris went on a 9 game tear.

As an amateur Chris turns down the $780 top prize. Incredibly she final without hitting one volley or overhread-on grass!

Casals and King won the doubles. Curiously they will not play together at Wimbledon.

Draw notes:

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

Summary:

Excitement ran high in the lead-up to this year's Championships. Mrs King, oddsmaker's favorite at 5-4, was looking for a second major this year and a lock on the world's #1 spot. Defending champ Evonne Goolagong was looking to repeat, and Nancy Gunter, who had won several Slims events in the spring, looked a good bet as a dark horse.

And then there was Miss Ice Dolly. Chrissie Evert was seeded #4. Making her European debut she swept through the Wightman Cup and won at Queen's. When the draw pitted her against Goolagong in semis the press and public went mad at the prospect of a showdown.

Chrissie had her hands full getting out of her 1R match. Her opponent was Val Ziegenfuss, a solid player who likes to attack the net. Evert won the first game and then succumbed to a blitz as Val seized 6 straight."For a while Val was irresistable. She was holding her service without strain, and in those endless rallies she would pounce on some short ball and come careening to the net to put the point away." Slowly but surely Evert tightened the screws. Val led 3-2 in sets 2 and 3 without getting the vital games needed to win.

The next round was quiet for the msot part-Laura Dupont saved 3 match points (some with sure volleys) and then won seven games running to beat Wightman Cupper Joyce Williams.

The third round gave hints of upsets to come. Would Billie Jean get it together? She looked shaky and was muttering to herself in the first game vs Ceci Martinez, serving up 4 double faults. She won that game, then cruised on to a routine win. The Ice Dolly saw a familair face across the net. At the US Open she saved 6 match points to beat Mary Ann Eisel, now Mrs Beattie. Evert looked an easy winner at 5-2, then dropped 4 games to go down 5-6. As usual Chris stayed coool under pressure, saving a set point and eeking out a 8-6 8-6 win. It was fiery Patti Hogan who delivered the shock of the day, taking out #5 seed Melville with an assortment of slices and soft stuff.

All the remaining seeds were on cruuse control in the $R except for Goolagong, who had all she could handle from unheralded Russian Olga Morozova. Down 3-5 in the third, Evonne prodcued 3 stunning passing shots to break back. Fortune smiled on her near the end as she was aided by two netcords in the last game. "When I'm down like that, I'm sometimes able to get inspiration. I was able to push myself."

Evonne flirted with disaster again in the Quarters vs Durr. According to the NYT, "As unconcerned as if she were skipping rope, a happy-go-lucky Evonne trailed by 5-6 and 0-30 in the first set and 2-5 in the second before those wonderful shots came to hand. In a five game surge at the end she won 8-6 7-5, as if it had been ordained all along." Meanwhile Evert struggles in the middle set as Patti Hogan Hammers down 7 aces, but Chris sails through the third.

Now the most anticipated match for many a year will come to pass. Evert says she will hit to Evonne's weaker forehand. Evonne's mentor Vic Edwards bemoans her carefree attitude, predicting disaster against someone of Evert's calibre. "I guess this must be a big match, because everyone keeps telling me so", Evonne mused.

Nancy Gunter was just 6 points away from a win at 6-3 30-0. She got no further, as Rosie swept the next 8 games for a major upset. With this defeat the chance of Nancy finishing #1 for the year went up in smoke.

The King-Wade encounter was the best played match of the quarters. Unstoppable in the opener, King gave Wade a long stare when Virginia went on a tear with the roar of the crowd in her ears. Wade continued her fineplay in the third, but King raises her play to an even higher plane. The match ends on a delicate stab volley that clips the line. This is the only set Billie Jean will drop all year in the 3 majors she contests.

King predicatably swept aside Casals as a curtainraiser to the match of the year. Evert looked a winner at 6-3 3-0 before Evoone turned it on and won 6 straight games for set two. Evoone on how she was told to play Chris: "He (Viv Edwards) told me to come to the net as much as possible and second, to cut them short on her backhand side, so Chris would have to come up."

Was it King's determination to regain the #1 spot that allowed her to ignore several bad calls in the final? She played as if on a quest. King: "I won 19 tournaments last year. I won over $100,000. I felt I was the best", she said. Despite her incredible stats most pundits rated Goolagong #1 for 1971 based on her Wimbledon win.

The first set of the final was flat. King was nervous and double faulted 4 times. Evonne was slow to start. King took a tame affair, wisely opting not to challenge questionable calls against her that might have drawn the disaaproval of the crowd down on her.

The second was much better, with the first break for Billie Jean coming in the key 7th game. Evonne's first serve was deadly, but King regularly took advantage of a short second serve to storm the net. Billie Jean won the last 4 games before a mostly silent crowd.

Goolagong after the final: "I don't feel that upset about losing. I feel more relieved." In another quote she admitted, "I went on my usual 'walkabout'." On the crowd, "When she [Billie Jean] hits a bit short or hits out and everybody claps it upsets me. I just don't think it's fair."

King on the reaction of the crowd: "They love you here when you are coming up. They don't like winners. And they especially don't like me because I talk about money all the time. I'm mercenary. I'm a rebel."

Men's winner received $12,500 US compared to $6,000 for the women's winner.

Draw notes:
#3 seed Val Ziegenfuss did not show up for the event. Her place taken by Carole Graebner.
#6 seed isn't known for certain. I infer Williams as the #6 seed based on draw position.

Hogan is impressed after being whipped by Wade. , saying, "If Virginia played like she does against me all the time, she would be Wimbledon champion." Virginia was miffed about her Wimbledon seeding (2 spots below Melville) and determined to prove a point here. The imperious Wade looked to win early, but she lost the first set of the fial after having a set point at 5-4 and lost in straights.

Draw note:
Ugarte uses Jane Kincaid. John Dolan uses Jenny Kincaid. Resolve.

This is the last year the Irish Open will be held on grass. In 1973 the event switches to a hard court. 29 year old (and Irisgh#1) Geraldine Barniville, mother of 3 and a dublin doctor, almost takes out the #2 seed Pretorius in the QF.

Evonne won her two opening matches on the same day to get her caught up in the draw.

The "Irish" Sue Minford is having a major dispute with the Iriah Tennis Federation. She insists that "I am British, very British, and there were political reasons why I did not want to play in Dublin." (p 80 of WT) Minford agreed to represent Ireland for Fed Cup in South Africa but now says she is being "blackmailed", as refusing to play might get her banned.

FI: Evonne Goolagong [1] and Bety Stove [6] split title due to rain

Evonne Goolagong barely made it to her 2R match, arriving from London only 15 minutes before the start time. After her 1R matcgh the popular Aussie was flown to London to receive the MBE, awarded by Queen Elizabeth II. Evonne ran through her 1R foe in a mere 33 minutes.

Brenda Kirk upsets Judy Dalton, with the tired Aussie retiring down 0-3 in the third. Dalton announces she is retiring. (Later in the 1970s she will return to play selected events). Brenda then goes on to upsend #2 seed Wade, breaking Virginia once in each set.

Does Betty Stove somehow curse finals? This is the second final this year she has seen rained out. Weeks earlier her final at Chichester was also cancelled.

Re: 1972 results

Week of July 24-30

July 28-30 Bonne Bell Cup Cleveland, Ohio, US (Hard/Roylene)
Venue: Arnold T Clark Memorial Courts

Australia d United States 5-2

Day 1
Evonne Goolagong (Aus) d Val Ziegenfuss 6-4 6-0
Chris Evert d Margaret Court (Aus) 6-3 6-3

Day 2
Kerry Melville (Aus) d Wendy Overton 2-6 7-5 5-0 retired (leg cramps)
Evonne Goolagong/Lesley Hunt (Aus) d Chris Evert/Patti Hogan 6-1 6-3

Day 3
Margaret Court (Aus) d Val Ziegenfuss 6-1 6-1
Chris Evert d Evonne Goolagong (Aus) 6-3 4-6 6-0
Margaret Court/Kerry Melville (Aus) d Wendy Overton/Val Ziegenfuss 6-1 6-2

About 21,000 come out over 3 days. A crowd of 7,012 on day 2. This event was Margaret Court's return tothe tour after the birth of her son Danny earlier in the year.

The slow Roylene courts favored Evert, who was the darling of the crowds.

Kerry Melville was on the edge of defeat at 2-6 4-5 0-30. She thne won 8 straight points. From that point on Overton was done in by both Kerry and a pulled muscle.

Chris Evert apparently has a boyfriend. Captain Carole Graebner said the story "looked like an upset mother waiting for her teenage daughter to come home from a date." Chris pulled up 30 minutes late in a car driven by fellow tennis player Jimmy Connors. Chris was embarassed enough to be hunched over in the car. (page 84 of WT-October 1972)

Top prize was $6,000. In the final Durr had a match point at 6-5 in set two. Rosie saves it and goes on a tear, winning 32 of tge last 37 points. Rosie had this to say about her win: "After two sets I realized one of us would probably have to drop dead. I felt pretty good going into the third set but she was obviously streaming after losing the second."

Off court the Slims women vote to discontinue giving 10 percent of prize money to the ITLF sponsored Grand Prix. The reason given is the disproportionate points the ITLF awards to non-American events with smaller prize money.

Kathy Kuykendall shares her views on tennis with Bill Sheldon of the Miami Herald. On dating: "I've never dated. I don't have time. Besides, boys are stupid. I'd only date 'em if they could play tennis. And then I'd only date 'em on the court." (World Tennis, Oct 1972 page 88)

Nancy Gunter defaulted here. In an interviwe with Jery Gibson of the Ledger-Enquirer she opined on why she is the only woman unbeaten by Chris Evert. The 5-0 Nancy remarked: "There is really no secret in beating Chris. We both play the same style of tennis and I think I play it a bit better than she does. I hit the ball harder." Nancy went on to acknowledge that Chris was sure to imptovre, but that she got better each year as well. (page 84 October 1972 WT)

Court took home $4,000 US for winning her first tournament since coming back-the only mother in the Open era to do so. It looked unlikely as Evonne led 5-3 in the third. It was then that Court hit more to her forehand. Margaret saved a break point when she served it out at 6-5. Two weeks ago, I thought I would never win the first tournament I entered.I never expected to do this well so quickly."

Evonne: "It just shows what a champion Margaret is. She's been away from tennis for over a year and she's behind in the third set but she still comes back and wins."

Court notes her serve is better and believes she's dropped some weight-losing aobut 10 pouns to get down to 142.

SF: Goolagong/Hunt [1] d Heldman/Tuero 6-2 6-0

FI: Evonne Goolagong/Lesely Hunt [1] d Margaret Court/Pam Teeguarden [2] 6-2 6-1*

Draw note: According to the NYT is is Court/Teeguarden who are #1 seeds-with Goolagong/Hunt at #2.

Evert wins a televised final going away in set two. The first set was quite another tale, as Goolagong rushed out to a 5-0 led. Evonne had a set point on serve at 5-2. After losing the tiebreak the aussie only wins 1 more game. As an amateur Chris turns down the $5,000 top prize. The top prize for the men was $8,000.

World Tennis wrote that the women totally overshadowed the men here. Even the first round doubles match of the Evert sisters got a standing room only crowd. The magazine said that "while Mrs Court played admirably after a one year layoff and only two weks of competition, she found it hard to concentrate and was still not moving well."

A slow resurfaced court compensates for the the high altitude in Denver, which tends to make the ball fly. Rain plagues the event early in the week. In an effort to catch up the 1R match between Richey and Dupont was held indoors.

The 1R sees a huge upset, with Brit Jill Cooper sending #2 seeds Casals packing in straight sets. In the next round Durr narrowly avoids the same fate by saving a match point at 5-6 in the third.

Favorites King and Gunter both get to the final-it's their 6th match this year. Nancy clawed to a win, tying their head to head at 3-3 for 1972 and regaining the lead in the Slims tour money rankings.

Billie Jean shot out to a 6-1 1-0 30-15 lead. After dropping the first game of the match she seized the next 7. Holding on grimly as is her wont, the tough Texan got to 1-1 when the match got interesting. First there was a five minute break to locate new balls. King had a point for 5-4 but got broken, and Nancy served the enxt game out at love to tie matters. Upset with some line calls in the seconf set, Mrs King demanded that a linesman be replaced. He wasn't, and King lost her serve after 3 deuces in the opening game of the third. Noticing the offending linesman was still around really set her off, and she complained throughout the third set. Gunter got broken when leading 3-1, but manged 2 more breaks to run out the match.

The crowd of 2,000 was firmly in King's corner despite her outbursts, prompting her to call them her "all-time audience in ten years...they were really good to me, I'll never forget it."

Top prize in Denver was $6,000.

The BBC does a documentary on the tour filmed in Denver. The show was produced and narrated by Vincent Harra.

Wade barely made it past Fuchs, who led 6-4 5-5 and 0-40 on Wade's serve. Virginia scores a notable win in beating Margaret Court for only the 3rd time in 20 meetings. The key game is at 3-3, turning into an 8 deuce struggle that sees Wade save 4 break points and win on her 5th game point. The New York Times credits her with "Brilliant lobs".

The final is a cakewalk for Evonne, perhaps due in part to Wade's mental fatigue from upsetting Court. The other half of the equation is Evonne's "near perfection", according to the NYT. "The Australian was deadly at the net, where she caught Miss Wade out of position several times." It was all over in 47 minutes.

Top prize was $4,400 for Goolagong. Men's winner Ilie Nastase took home $11,000

The whole event was played under VASS rules-basically a total "no-Ad" scorng system with no deuces. when players split sets in the qualifying the first to 2 games won in place of a third set. The tirbreak games were best of 5 points. This lasted until the QF, when the USTA demanded the traditional scoring be employed or the event forfeit Grand Prix status. The women voted to go on under the VASS and the USTA never followed through with their threat.

Oddly enough almost every match in the singles draw was won in straight sets. Only Pigeon-Gourlay went the "distance." Margaret Court declares herself finally "back" after running roughshod over Evert and King on consecutive days. Chris only managed 3 games, Billie Jean 5. Margaret declared, "I'm serving better than I have in my career and after losing some weight seem to be moving better too."

One entertaining point in the Court-Evert semi saw Margaret Volley back 5 sizzling drives from evert-passing shots that no other woman would have gotten.

Attendance records were broken from the very first day.

Second seed Pat Pretorius double faults at match point down to lose a 2R encounter.

Wade takes the final before a capacity crowd of 2,500 in sweltering 92 degree heat. Her prize is $1,100. Virginia stayed back more than usual on grass, using her topsin forehand and a backhand slice to break up Fleming's two-handed backhand. Wade hit 2 aces and 21 winners and 28 errors-Fleming has 12 winners and 38 errors. Wade took 15 straight points during one stretch in the second.

Hogan let a match point get away vs Graebner. Carole went on court after her husband got upset. Clark took care of Clark (age 5) and Cameron (4) while mom tookcare of business on court.

The second game of the Morozova-Tuero match goes 18 points, but what looks like a close match is setled in straights. The is the first all-Russian women's final in the US.

The Women's Pro Tour offered to provide money if the draw could be doubled from 8 to 16. The offer was turned down, so Newport took in the extra women.

Draw notes:

Note the odd addition of a Preliminary Round-which included seeds!

*World Tennis has Gunter d Gail Chanfreau in the 1R by 6-0 6-1. Newspapers (including the NYT) list Aschner. We have gone with Aschner as the probable result, though it is known she lost to Penny Moor in the last round of qualifying. Could she have been a lucky loser?

Liem=maiden name of Sugiarto
Kemmer=maiden name of Shaw.

Summary:

The first big upset came early, as Nancy Gunter lost to fellow baseliner Kazuko Sawamatsu, who ran Nancy to death from corner to corner then dropshotted her. Evonne Goolagong's debut at the US Open was a short run. Goolagong led Pam Teeguarden 5-4 40-15 when she was beaten by 2 powerful forehands. The Aussie got only 1 more game as she went down "slow of foot, languid in manner, and lost in some dreamworld of her own."

Casals had Court on the ropes in their quarter. Margaret's husband Barry had to take their crying baby out of the stadium-and it looked as if Court was going to be crying as Casals led 4-2 15-40 on the Aussie's serve in the third. Ah, but the champ in Court then pulled out the stops, even if she did slip twice on the slippery grass,once with her racquet flying out of her hands. Meanwhile Rosie "wilted on the brink of victory", double faulting to end the match.

Morozova threw it all at Evert-mixing up "nothing balls" with forays to the net. "No two returns were alike". Evert turned the tide and seemed to have it won, leasing 5-2 in the 3rd, when the Russian stormed back with flashing forehands to surge to 6-5. Chrissie barely survived by sweeping the tiebreak. "It had been a sparkling, thrilling. memorable contest. It was voted the women's match of tournament.

Wade "fought like to tigress" vs. King, but could only manage to fend off 5 match points before going down.

'The two semis were contrasts in style and personality. King-Court was full of robust, forceful, all-court attack, while the Kerry Melville-Chrissie envcounter was all-femininity, reminiscent of the 1930's in it's baseline exchanges."

King was more consistent in her attack-Court made too many forehand errors to keep up. Kerry's "forceful forehand" had Evert on the move, throwing in the occasional drop shot to take Chris out of her groove. Evert got to almost every one, only to have Kerry rocket a passing shot by her. Melville's win shocked the stadium, who were xpecting a Billie Jean-Chris final.

Chrissie-mania was more subdued than in 1971, but the women (and the Open) were still big attractions in large part because of her. When there were complaints about the women getting "too much exposure" Chris and her sister Jeanne were scheduled for an outside court "there was nearly a riot". All of singles matches were in the stadium.

The final was closer than any of King's other matches, but her serve was too much for Kerry, who almost capitalized on the strong wind that sprang up in the second set. Melville had leads of 4-3 and 5-4 but couldn't break.

The potted grass at Forest Hills is finally prompting open calls to move to a clay surface. Some are even advocating taking the Open from FH because the facility is getting old and too cramped to handle the crowds.

King won a Pinto Station wagon, which was driven into the stadium during the trophy ceremony. After winning the 3 biigest slams one writer declared King "must certainly be included among the handful of tennis immortals." With the rule on non-white discarded BJ won with a "see-through" dress and bright blue sneakers. In her press conference afterwards King threatens a boycott of next year's open if the prize money isn't distributed more equally. She got $10,000 for her victroy compared to Ilie Nastase's $25,000.
