Draw notes:
1. Double check Ziegenfuss-Durr score. Ugarte has 7-6 6-4.
2. Liem/Siler d Kemmer/Vinton 6-7 6-1 5-4 (tiebreak score) in the Consolation Doubles final. Was this
in any way connected to the main doubles draw?

The dour 1R Durr-Gunter match lasts 2 hours. In the quarterfinals both top seeds go out to qualifiers, with Stove breaking serve once in the first set and then following that by saving 4 sets points from 1-4 in the tiebreak. Ziegenfuss takes out the #5 seed (Gourlay) then Durr (#2) in the QF, and finally #6 Dalton in the semis. It's the first time a qualifier has ever made the finals of Slims event.

Val is no match for Rosie Casals in the final. Her win here puts Rosie at #1 in overall prize money on the tour through 5 events.

The USTA drops its demand of a 6% sanction fee, settling for $480 per event instead. This is major victory for tour founder Gladys Heldman, who also announces the minimum prize money for tour events is now set at $18,000.

A New Tork Times releases an article piece on Chris Evert titled "The Girl Who Grew Up on Center Court"

The budding teen wants to be called Chris, not "Chrissie". She's added a half-inch (now 5' 5" according to the Times) and 5 pounds to her thin frame. The bubble-gum chewing teen expressed disdain for the monikers "Little Poker Face" and "Cinderella in tennis shoes." Evert said, "That poker face thing is so blah-and I don't like the Cinderella thing either."

The unflappable Floridian may not show emotions on the court. Practice is different matter however. On the odd occasion Miss Evert has broken a few racquets in anger. Jimmy Evert was quoted in the Miami News, stating, " She has broken four racquetrs in the last four months."
