3rd place: Casals d Newberry 6-1 6-3 (*Score 6-1 6-4 according to the NYT)

Doubles

FI: Rosie Casals/Julie Heldman d. Kerry Harris/Kerry Melville 6-3 6-3

According to the NYT this is Court's 11th straight tournament victory and 54th consecutive match win since October of 1972. She was in trouble only once all week, as cagy Julie Heldman kept passing her at net in the QF. Mags changed gears and stayed back after that, sweeping 11 of the next 12 games.

The other finalist had to fight tooth and nail all the way. Kerry overcame an inspired Wendy Overton. Wendy has blossumed under the coaching of Doris Hart. Melville took the last two point from 3 -3 in the suffen death tiebreak. She also survived a last set tiebreak vs #2 seed Casals.

The final was a blowout, as Court won in 44 minutes. Margaret's 11 month old son Danny provided comic relief afterwards, waddling on court to hold Kerry's hand after the match.

Durr is such a slump that she will drop down to the "prelims" (Qualifying). A bout of hepatitis is largely to blame and dogs her for much of 1973.

The venue was small, but there were sold out seats of 1,700 every day.
