Re: 1985

Week of February 11-17

February 5-17 Lipton Players Championships, Delray Beach, Florida, US (Hard)

Prize Money= $750,000 US
Part of the Virginia Slims tour

Singles (Draw=128)

QF: Martina Navratilova [1] d. Bettinga Bunge (Ger) 6-4 6-4
QF: Carling Bassett (Can) [10] d. Hana Mandlikova (Cz) 7-5 6-2
QF: Steffi Graf (Ger) d. Andrea Temesvari (Hun) 6-2 6-1
QF: Chris Evert-Lloyd [2] d. Barbara Potter [12] 4-6 6-4 6-1

SF: Navratilova [1] d. Bassett [10] 6-3 6-3
SF: Evert-Lloyd [2] d. Graf 6-4 6-2

FI: Martina Navratilova [1] d. Chris Evert-Lloyd [2] 6-2 6-4

DF: Gigi Fernandez/Martina Navratilova [11] d. Kathy Jordan/Hana Mandlikova (Cz) 7-6 6-2


"The Lipton'" is a self declared attemt to create a "fifth slam". Despite all the money pumped into it the Florida event will never obtain Slam status. What it does accomplish though the start of integrating the men's and women's tours together. In 1985 a combined sex event outside the slams was rare. By 2015 it is common, and the overwhelming success of this first event plays a large part in that trend. This was also the first "mega" event outside a grand slam to have a draw of 128.

A crowd of well over 10,000 are on hand for an Evert-Navratilova final.
