SF Marsikova/Teeguarden d Cawley/Russell 6-1 6-4

FI Navratilova/Stove d. Marsikova/Teeguarden 6-4 6-4

The draw was helped by additions from WTT. Navratilova, Stove, and Casals were 3 top tenners whose WTT had been bounced early the playoffs, allowing them to enter Charlotte.

The Gastonia Gazette runs an article on thre other Evert-Jeanne. Jeanne loses to Mimi Jausovec on court 22 in front of about 40 people, most of them curious due to her last name. She's used to it, graciously signing autographs after her loss. Jausovec "just runs you to death. look at her and look at me. I'm all sweaty and she's barely broken a sweat."

Martin a won $6,000 for taking home the title, suggesting the purse was $35,000. The final is held under hot conditions. A cautious Martina drops the first set, then her serve and volley picks up steam. Martina has now won an impressive 6 singles titles this year,according to the Gazette.

Earlier in the week thousands (as opposed to the normal few hundred) came out in the early rounds to see Tracy Austin. Tracy's dream run ended in the quarters to Navratilova. "She is so strong and simply overpowered me. I still have a lot to learn."

Mima said the heat gave her a headache. Mima declared "I'm used to the heat, but not the humidity." Thr tiny Yugoslav used drop shots to perfection in beating Marsikova. "I knew she was kind of slow," Mima said. "This tactic works [spins and drop shots] because I have only lost to her once [in about 5-6 matches].

Martina's WTT was stellar. She won 21 straight sets with doubles partner Greer Stevens AND broke Rosie Casals 1974 record of 16 singles wins in a row. Billie Jean King stopped her string at 17. Greer Stevens misses four matches due to pleurisy. Navratilova moved from Cleveland to Bostion in 1977, a move that wasn't popular in Cleveland, where she got booed on her return.
