FI: Abandoned due to rain, each team (Kerry Reid/Greer Stevens and Evonne Goolagong/Betty Stove [2]) received $4,500.

Evonne Goolagong sweeps all before her in winning her first significant tournament in over a year. Now a mother, both press and public welcome her back to her home country. In the quarters Terry Holladay was ahead 3-1 in the last set. The Gong pulled up to 3 all when rain came. The next day Evonne barely clipped Holladay 6-4, went on beat Dianne Fromholtz after a two hour rest, and swamped #2 seed Kerry Reid 6-1 6-3.

"I was so surprised I even made the final", a humble Evonne declared, "but to win such a big tournament my first time back was beyonf my wildest dreams."
