Draw notes:

* The draw is taken directly from the Slims Media Guide. However-the placement of the #4 seeds in the doubles draw is off unless there was a last minute replacement.


The crowd is "wildly partisan" in favor of their hometown girl Evert. A chilly wind did nothing to put Chrissie off in the semis. She routed Casals-making a grand total of 3 errors in the first set and 1 in the second. All rosie could do was mutter about the wind. Melville liked her chances after her semi, declaring, "If I play like I did today, I have a good chance against Chris. The reason people have trouble beating Chris is they change their game, but she doesn't change hers."

Melville never got to hit a ball in the final. In a motel mishap she stubbed her toe so badly that she broke it. Althea Gibson, the 1958 US Champ, fills in at the last minute. In an exhibition match Chris beats her 6-1 6-2.

Could this be the first satellite event to mirror the Slims? Perhaps designed to give the lesser women a small share of the spotlight, it also vastly reduced the qualie rounds for regular tour events. Presumably those who did well in the satellite events would "jump up" to the main tour.
