9,000 show for the quarters, the biggest crowd of the week. More might have come for the last two rounds, both affected by heat and rain.

Rain delayed the event-the women's final played on a Monday. Temps were torrid-120 F in the semis where Wendy Turnbull upset Sue Barker. Manwhile Goolagong dismantled Stove. Evonne after her semi win: "I didn't expect to win last week in Sydney and I'm just as surprised to be in the final this time. But if you will excuse the expression, Betty played bloody awful."
