FI: Laura DuPont (US)/Krisien Kemmer (US) d. Nancy Gunter (US)/Karen Krantzcke (Aus) 8-6

A women's only event not connected to any circuit. As the biggest drawing card King was paid a large guarantee to fly over. 3,800 attend the first day in Tokyo.

King took home $8,400 for winning the title.

It was on the plane ride back that these women pros heard of the Mother's Day Massacre. The event was actually played over a number of Japanese cities (Osaka, Kobe, etc) ending in Tokyo for the semis and final. The Japanese erupted at winning volleys and overheads but remained "eerily silent" at baseline play. The only sound to be heard during the Durr-Gunter semi was Nancy's grunts!

DF Coleman/ Turnbull d. Goolagong/ Young 7-5 7-5

16 year old lefty Fromholtz continues to advance. Wade's "Thoughtful and disciplined attack" brought down Evonne. It was tough going for the Brit at first, as Miss Sunshine refused to miss. When Evonne finally missed a shot over the baseline Wade exclaimed. "Well done! She's missed one." By the end Evonne was the one with no answers-even trying to run around her backhand, normally her stronger side.

May 13 "Battle of the Sexes", Ramona, California, United States (Hard)
Venue: San Vicente Country Club

Prize Money= $10,000

Bobby Riggs d. Margaret Court 6-2 6-1

It was a bad day from the start for Court. Her little son threw her sneakers down the toilet; which is how her game went too. 55 year old Riggs presented her with flowers for Mother's Day and proceeded to slow ball Court to death in a mere 57 minutes. The so-called "Mother's Day Massacre" set the stage for the King-Riggs battle in September.
