Billie Jean King d Dianne Fromholtz 6-1 2-6 6-2,Chris Evert d Kerry Reid 7-5 6-3
Reid/Turnbull (Aus) d. Casals/Evert 6-3 6-3

The big upset occurs in the semis as Australia shocks Britain. Diane takes down Barker by slicing her lefty backhand return of serve down the line to Sue's weaker backhand. Even more shocking was Reid's win over Wade. In the finals King plays a pitch perfect first set, missing only 2 first serves vs Diane. Fromholtz roared back to take the second by winning 6 games on the trot before the momentum swung back to Billie jean in the final set. Reid led 4-1 in the first set, then Evert refused to make another error and barely edged out Kerry.

**Note-the Barker "win" at Eastbourne is PROBABLY the 21 and under event-there was no regular event at Eastbourne in 1977 due to Fed Cup.

Note that Judith Erskine, who played in singles and doubles here, is now known as Judy Murray, Andy's Mum!

The event plays the tiebreaker at 8 all, leading to marathons like Julie Anthony’s 40 game win over Janet Newberry. Kristein Shaw comes very close to the win of her career taking a set off Martina and pushing her to a second tiebreaker before going down in a 75 third set. In fact, Kristien Shaw had a match point in the second set at 5-4 40-30.

Tracy Austin loses in qualifying to Mappin. The tournament review in "Tennis Today: said of Austin: '...She conquered Lesley Charles in her first venture on the Craiglockhart centre court. That was the extent of Tracy's singles progress. She was to learn a lesson on grass-court technique from the bold, strong-armed Sue Mappin, who just never let the ball bounce if she could help it'.A quality field, probably due to the fact that Eastbourne was hosting the Fed Cup this week and many players needed Wimbledon preparation.
