Draw note: Cindy Brinker is Maureen Connolly's daughter.

"If you can't come through a field containing Court or King, you are not truly a champion." True or not, this widely expressed sentiment has prevented the USTA tour from attaining the same status as the Slims tour. Even Chris Evert admitted of the Slims "Their tour is better and offers more money. I hope I don't get lazy playing, not playing the best players." Yet Chris also said in an interview, "I joined the USTA because I believe in the USTA and think they are doing the right thing. They are the one group that should be controlling women's tennis. the Virginia Slims should join us, not we join Virginia Slims"

Chris gets all the competition she could want when another Virginia-Brit Virginia Wade, fires aces past her for the upset then beats Evonne.
