Days after being upset Court announces she is pregnant. Margaret withdraws from the upcoming Bonne Belle Cup and the 1974 Aussie Open. She ends the years with 23 out of 26 titles and world #1 ranking. She also sets a prize money record of $205,000.

Even if Margaret was out of sorts due to carrying a child Kerry's win was well deserved. This was only Court's 5th defeat all year.

Evonne came from 4-5 down to run off 3 straight games in both sets of her semi with Lesley Hunt. First prize was $1,600 for Evonne.

Court was chasing her 12th Western Australia Championships.

*Double check final score. Dolan has 7-5 6-1. I also had a score (source?) of 7-6 6-1. Dolan should be considered correct for the present.
