Draw note:

Gai Healey listed as "Gail" in Dolan book

Court's 9th and last NSW title. Court had some help from officials in getting to the final by having her semi vs Krantzcke put off from Friday to Saturday. Mags was still recovering from a stomach pull the week before in the Austalian Open. No doubt possible negative effect on the gate without Court in the final played a big factor in the decision. At it was "the Arm" barely survived Kran. At 2-2 in the third Court asked a ballboy for a pot of hot tea. She won the next 3 games, but couldn't quite close the deal as Karen saved 3 match balls on serve at 4-5. From 5 all Margaret held 3 times at love while Krantzcke battled tooth and nail, finally losing it 9-7.

The other semi was just as dramatic. Virginia Wade broke down and cried after losing her semi, citing bad officiating. Wade counted 10 bad calls against herself to Evonne's two. She gave vent to her frustration by yelling out, "Where are all the officials?" She was then heckled by the crowd. When she hit a winning volley at 4-4 that was called out Wade stopped to complain, only to have the pro-Goolagong crowd of 3,000 yell at her to "get on with the game", etc. All matches until the semis had only an umpire and no linesmen.

Court won the tighest battle she ever had in her head to head vs Goolagong.The 2 hour hour 5 minute thriller witnessed by excited fans produced tennis or a high order. Goolagong served for the title at 5-4 and 7-6.

At the joint presser afterwards Evonne said she "got the elbow serving for the match". A surprised Court put down her beer and said "that's the first time I ever heard you say you got nervous."

"That's the toughest game I've ever had with Evonne in all out many encounters. No one has ever pushed me so much, not even Billie Jean King."

A sell-out 10,000 watch the final, only the third time White City has seen a sellout since the 1950s. Total attendance for the week was 22,000. 19,000 of that figure came on the last 3 days. Court won $ 2,030 for the title compared to $2,540 for men's winner Anderson.
