The field is double that of last year, and so is the prize money (this year's winner got $1,600 compared to $600 in 1971) but the chauvanist attitude reamains the same, as the women's final is put on an outside court. The prize money ratio is still shocking, as the male winner winner in $10,000.

The ladies event gets off to a rocky start when Dutch seeds Stove and Schaar phone to say they are playing in another event and default.

In the second round defending champ Wade falls to her own temper and impatience. She has to wait ait for a re-stringing job on her racquet. She then waits for an umpire that is 1 hour late. Then she waits for her play to get better-which it never does. Moaning about the noise from an adjoining court, she shouts out at one stage. "It's impossible to play so badly!"

Tuero beats Masthoff in a long semi, then takes care of Russian Olga Morozova. This is the first major final for any Russian, male or female. The doubles win for the Russian just makes it all that sweeter.

Was there any prize money-or was the Ojai strictly amateur?

The Sally Ride in the draw is almost certainly the famous astronaut. Ride played tennis as a youth before pursuing a career that led to space flight.

Jan Hasse never found fame. She was later connected to a murder case involving her female lover.
