3rd place: Melville d King default

DF: Rosie Casals/Virginia Wade [1] d. Helen Gourlay/Karen Krantzcke 6-4 5-7 7-5

The NYT has Durr seeded #4 and Wade #3. We are using John Dolan's seedings here.

This was both a hard (outdoor) and indoors event. The first 2 rounds were indoors- split between the Long Beach City College Gymnasium and the Cerritos College Men's Gymnasium in Norwalk. The last 2 rounds were outdoors at the Billie Jean King Center in Long Beach.

King said in her 1982 autobiography that she intentionally lost the semifinal match with Francoise Durr because of an argument with her (King's) husband (page 113-114).

Doubles

SF: Evonne Goolagong/Olga Morozova d. Anne Coleman/Christine Matison 6-2 6-3

FI: Evonne Goolagong/Olga Morozova d. Kerry Hogarth/Marilyn Tesch 6-3 6-0

Draw note: The NYT has Kay Walker rather than Kathy. For now I am going with Kathy.

With most of the big guns in America Evonne and Olga are the 2 biggies on the Aussie circuit, Wade having gone back to the US after Kooyong. Janet Young was 3 or 4 times times 2 points points from victory vs. Evonne in the semis. Aussie sportsswriter Michael Quirk reported that Evoone got a $1,500 guarentee just to show up in Adelaide (p 92 of WT).
