The absence of King and Evert was a golden opportunity seized on by Kerry Melville. In front of a capacity crowd of 1,700 the Aussie has her first match point at 6-3 5-1 40-15, then lets 4 more slip by as the score goes to 5-5. Kerry serves for it again at 6-5 but double faults on break point. In the tiebreal she has more match points at 4-3. When Casals won the second set tiebreak one felt she had the momemtum, yet Kerry finally took the match 16 games after her first match point. "I thought I'd never win it," the pixie-like Melville declared, "but I was determined I wasn't going to lose." This is Melville's first tournament win since Auckland in 1971.

Despite the lack of big names the event nets $35,000 in ticket sales, up $4,000 from last year
