King had a rough go of at times in her 1R match-swatting a ball into the stands at one point before eventually winning over 15 year old Robin Tenney. She had another close call in the quarters. She had called her opponent Kemmer "not that good a player". (This quote from the NYT needs context-was it before or after the match-and what were the exact circumstances surrounding the quote?). In the Kemmer match BJK came back from 2-5 down.

What promises to be a great final falls flat as King commits too many errors to make it a competitive contest. After collecting her winner's check of $6,000 and a sports car Evert says, "I don't think Billie Jean had a good day. She has so many things on her mind concerning women's tennis."

One thing on the mind of all players is what the ITF plans to do about World Team Tennis. The players are hoping for a deal that allows them to keep all options open. The ITF feels threatened by the new concept however, and is seriously considering a boycott.
