3rd place: Metcalf d. Fuchs [4] 6-0 6-1

DF: Ilana Kloss (SA)/Pat Pretorius (SA) d. Janice Metcalf /Laurie Tenney 1-6 7-6 6-1

Wade and Goolagong Cawley are in Europe. There is no one to challenge Evert. Linda Tuero's claim to fame is her boyfriend William Blatty, author of "The Exorcist." They met while she was filming a bit scene in the movie. When he watches her matches, he half jokingly puts hexes on Linda's opponents.

Draw note: Navratilova's default is due to her playing the Czech International, doubtless at the behest of her government.
