First stop on the 1973 Virginia Slims circuit, which is under pressure from the USTA to disband. Because pro tennis is now tied to sponsors the USTA and ITF don't dare ban the women because sponsors want the top drawing cards like King and Court. The USTA response has been to start it's own rival circuit comprised of stars Chris Evert, Evonne Goolagong, and Virginia Wade.

5,300 for finals despite Billie Jean defaulting in the 1R with an inflamed wrist. King's doctor ordered her to rest for 3 weeks.

Casals came closest to toppling Court all week in the semis. "I had her where I wanted her....Once she's out in front , she's tough to catch." Rosie had come back from 1-4 down to lead 6-4 2-1.

Rosie had been on fire in the quarters, crushing Durr with a stream of winners (40 in all-including 16 volleys and 9 overheads)-committing only 1 unforced error the whole match. Kerry beat Richey in this round despite being 2 points from defeat with Nancy serving at 5-4 30-15.
