?R: Court/Hunt [3] d Berner/Emanuel 6-0 6-2

FI: Margaret Court/Lesley Hunt [3] led Francoise Durr/Betty Stove [1] 3-2 (title divided due to rain)

Draw note:

Christina Sandberg qualified but did not play-place taken by lucky loser Salli Hudson-Beck. Top prize was $12,000, a huge payday in 1971. In fact, this is the largest top purse to date, with Dallas ($11,000) and the US Open ($10,000) ar second and third. The facilities are so nice that King suggests the US Open could be moved from New York to Charlotte."These are probably the best facilities in the country right now. There is no reason why the US Open shouldn't be held on clay."

15 year old Kathy Kuykendall had vet Casals on the ropes in the 1R but couldn't deliver the knockout blow. Kathy served for the match at 6-5 in the seocnd and had a match point at sudden-death in the tiebreak. Rosie rolled to a comfortable win in the third. Nancy Gunter dodged 2 mps vs Overton.

Billie Jean celebrates turning 24 by beating Casals. Her win over Court demonstrates her current dominance on the tour follwing her US Open win. King's play was sterling from start to finish.

Court must have enjoyed Carolina, as she signs on to become the resident pro at the Seven Devils Mountain Resort in Boone, North Carolina.

3rd place: Rosie Casals [3] d Kerry Melville [4] 6-2 6-4

Doubles

FI: Ann Jones/Billie Jean King d Margaret Court/Lesley Hunt 7-5 2-6 7-6 (5-4)

Draw note: 2 players withdrew from the main draw at the last minute, spots open for Bonnie Logan and Birgitta Lindstron, both lost in qualifying. (Note that Dolan's book has Hansen as the LL, but she won in qualifying. He also has Lindstrom and Logan as qualifiers.)

Ann Jones plays her first event since giving birth to daughter Philippa Ann in December of 1971. For the most part she enjoys being a mom and touring with her husband Pip, who works for the tour. She partners King "for fun" and wins a thrilling final that ends on sudden death point.

Durr falls in the 1R, "leaving the court in a rage after smashing her racquet" (the New York Times).

King got jeered by the crowd for appearing to give up towards the end of the final. King said later that "i had one of those insignificant days...a walkabout as Evonne Goolagonf would call it." Court took a different view, accusing her of tanking: "You just don't throw it away like that."

King and Court battle it out in high temps of 112 F before a crowd of 4,100. This was the largest crowd for any tennis match in Arizona up to this point. Court led 5-3 in the first set but couldn't finish, and she double faulted in the tiebreak to drop it.. Later Billie jean said, "It's really important vs Margaret not to let her win that first set. If you stay even with her or get ahead you have a chance, because she gets tight."

By reaching the semis Billie Jean once again passed the $100,000 here in Phoenix. The semis and final here are nationally televised by PBS.

22 women sign on to form a new tour after negotiations break down with the USTA. New tour director Gladys Heldman states, "This isn't a war of women against men.It's a war against a few offical swho have simply been two tough." King, Court, and most fo the Slims women have signed on. Two prominent names not on the list are Chris Evert and Evonne Goolagong. Evert's father is a UST loyalist, while Goolagong's handler Vic Edwards has found she can often make more money from guarentees.

The power of Evert soon becomes apparent, as a few weeks later the Ft Lauderdale Virginia Slims event "switches" loyalties literally overnight and instead opts to go put on a USTA sponsored event.

3rd place: Francoise Durr [7] d Billie Jean King [1] default


90 pound Jeanne Evert sends shock waves through the event on the opening day when she prevails over Margaret Court. Court suffers from leg cramps. "I started having cramps in the middle of the second set. I was trying to drop shot her so I wouldn't have to run so much."

Jeannie: "I'm dissapointed for her. she had the match won. I don't really consider this a victory."

Stove: "I had nothing to lose, so I tried to make her run a lot. I had lost to Nancy in the past, but I think maybe the fact that I had to play qualifying matches helped me."

Melville has 3 set points on Evert at 5-2 40-0.

Chris before the final: "I think this tournament is the calibre of Forest Hills. It's not a grudge match, but I am eager to play her."

FI: Margaret Court/Virginia Wade d Patti Hogan/Sharon Walsh 6-3 6-2

The start of the 4 tournament Dewar indoor circuit. Sponsored by a Scottish Whiskey company, players are presented on court in the finals by a band of Scottish bagpipes.

Court wins rather easily here. She is extended somewhat by Kirk and Heldman though. Kirl led 4-2 and 6-5 30-15 in the first set, and Heldman likewise led 4-3 and 5-4.

Julie was very pleased to reach the final, upsetting Virginai Wade in a tense tussle. The heady Heldman needed 5 match points to put Wade away.

In an early round match Molesworth saved a match point on a net cord vs Beavem recovering from 0-4 and 4-5 in the third.

16 year old Sue Barker promises a good future for British tennis when she pushes Virginai Wade in the 2R. sue served for the second set at 5-4, fell behind 5-6 0-40, then won the tiebreak. From 1-1 in the third Wade ran off 5 straight games.

Wade looked as if she might finally break her losing streak to Margaret in the final. Court was suffering from a cold-even taking antibiotics beforehand. When Wade led 6-2 3-2 30-0 she was on the brink. All it took was two "dreadful shots by Miss Wade, who was never in the match again, losing 10 of the next 12 games" (Dolan).

A pregnant Ann Jones (she is 4 months along) plays the doubles and reaches the semis.

Re: 1972 results

Week of November 13-19

November 13-15 Round Robin Exhibition Series, Notiingham, England, UK (Indoors)
Venue: Nottingham University Sports Centre

Day 1: Margaret Smith Court d Julie Heldman 6-0 6-3
Day 2: Virginia Wade d Margaret Smith Court 7-5 5-7 6-4
Day 3: Virginia Wade d Betty Stove 6-3 6-0

Stove replace an injured Heldmanon the last day. Wade won 125 pounds for coming in first.

Virginia has a match point at 5-3 vs Court, who swipes it away with a forehand winner and goes on to win the set. Wade refuses to wilt however, and breaks at 4-4 for a confidence building win.

Doubles

FI: Margaret Court/Virginia Wade d Brenda Kirk/Sharon Walsh 6-1 6-4

Court sparkled in more ways than one here. For one thing she was wearing a tennis dress desinged by Ted Tinling-the first time in about a decade she had wore a dress. Her play shined too, as she streamrolled the field. Wade felt so helpless in the second set that she turned to the crowd and exclaimed "she cannot miss, can she?". The 38 minute rout was a total contrast to their close fight days before in Nottingham.

Wendy Gilchrist gets married in Croyden hours before going on court to face Margaret.

World Tennis gives Dec 1 as an end date here. This date appears to be incompatible with the Queensland event, thus I am keeping Ugarte's dates.

*WT also has the score of the doubles final as 6-2 6-1. I'm keeping Ugarte's scores for now.

December 7-10* Clean Air Classic, New York, New York, US (Indoors on Supreme Court)
Venue: Seventh Regiment Armory

Prize Money= $75,000 (combined men and women) Women's prize money was $15,000

Draw=8

1R: Virginia Wade [1] d Carole Caldwell Graebner 6-3 6-3
1R: Francoise Durr [3] d Linda Tuero 6-2 6-2
1R: Val Ziegenfuss d Wendy Overton [4] 6-2 7-6
1R: Rosie Casals [2] d Betty Stove 6-1 6-3

SF: Wade [1] d Durr [3] 6-1 6-2*
SF: Casals [2] d Ziegenfuss 6-4 5-7 6-3

FI: Virginia Wade [1] d Rosie Casals [2] 6-3 6-3

Nancy Gunter originally the #1 seed broke her nose before the start of the event. Played under the VASS system, where the first person to win 4 points takes the game. Thus there are no deuces.

Francoise Durr is trying out a new backhand-flattening out the shot. "after 15 years I thought I could not change. Poof, a new stroke. I feel so good." One thing hasn't changed-she still uses the frying pan grip she is famous for.

Perhaps she was less confident in the backhand after Wade "routed" her in the semis. Virginia went on to take the $6,000 top prize-a haul of $2,000 per hour. The men's winner here won $10,000 US.

In explaining her success Wade said, "I'm thinking more on court now. I never used to think. Now I'm more relaxed on the court and moving well. And when I'm relaxed, I'm confident."

2,5000 see the finals, which are televised.

Draw notes:
The 32 player men's field started play on December 4.

(From World Tennis): Margaret Court didn't play here as she wasn't contacted by the tournament. Aussie sportswriter Gordon Schwartz wrote: "In view of the fact Evonne Goolagong was guarenteed $1500, air fares and accomadation...., it is a tragedy that a sponsor was not found for Mrs Court."

#rd annaul event-this is the first year women were included. The surface was a slippery as glass according to the players. Francoise Durr was uanble to come to Jamaica when she lost her passport, stranding her in Miami. Accoridng to World Tennis, "Even though Rosie was not at her best, Julie worked sensibly to keep her talented opponent from getting in the groove and generallt gave every indication of greater things to come next year."
