Evonne Goolagong agrees to forgo using her married name of Cawley in order to help promote the event. Margaret Court's comeback is halted in part due to bad leg, which she injures during an early round doubles match. Court had won her 2R singles by taking 11 straight games from 1-3 in the second set.

Navratilova wins $22,000 for the title-her first in months.

Wimbledon and the WTA announce a compromise agreement on prize money. The women's prize money for 1976 will be 80 percent of the men's. The women's purse for 1976 was $261.998 US. For 1977 it wil be $360,335. The women had threatened to boycott the Championships.
