Draw notes:
#3 seed Val Ziegenfuss did not show up for the event. Her place taken by Carole Graebner.
#6 seed isn't known for certain. I infer Williams as the #6 seed based on draw position.

Hogan is impressed after being whipped by Wade. , saying, "If Virginia played like she does against me all the time, she would be Wimbledon champion." Virginia was miffed about her Wimbledon seeding (2 spots below Melville) and determined to prove a point here. The imperious Wade looked to win early, but she lost the first set of the fial after having a set point at 5-4 and lost in straights.

Draw note:
Ugarte uses Jane Kincaid. John Dolan uses Jenny Kincaid. Resolve.

This is the last year the Irish Open will be held on grass. In 1973 the event switches to a hard court. 29 year old (and Irisgh#1) Geraldine Barniville, mother of 3 and a dublin doctor, almost takes out the #2 seed Pretorius in the QF.

Evonne won her two opening matches on the same day to get her caught up in the draw.

The "Irish" Sue Minford is having a major dispute with the Iriah Tennis Federation. She insists that "I am British, very British, and there were political reasons why I did not want to play in Dublin." (p 80 of WT) Minford agreed to represent Ireland for Fed Cup in South Africa but now says she is being "blackmailed", as refusing to play might get her banned.
