A slow resurfaced court compensates for the the high altitude in Denver, which tends to make the ball fly. Rain plagues the event early in the week. In an effort to catch up the 1R match between Richey and Dupont was held indoors.

The 1R sees a huge upset, with Brit Jill Cooper sending #2 seeds Casals packing in straight sets. In the next round Durr narrowly avoids the same fate by saving a match point at 5-6 in the third.

Favorites King and Gunter both get to the final-it's their 6th match this year. Nancy clawed to a win, tying their head to head at 3-3 for 1972 and regaining the lead in the Slims tour money rankings.

Billie Jean shot out to a 6-1 1-0 30-15 lead. After dropping the first game of the match she seized the next 7. Holding on grimly as is her wont, the tough Texan got to 1-1 when the match got interesting. First there was a five minute break to locate new balls. King had a point for 5-4 but got broken, and Nancy served the enxt game out at love to tie matters. Upset with some line calls in the seconf set, Mrs King demanded that a linesman be replaced. He wasn't, and King lost her serve after 3 deuces in the opening game of the third. Noticing the offending linesman was still around really set her off, and she complained throughout the third set. Gunter got broken when leading 3-1, but manged 2 more breaks to run out the match.

The crowd of 2,000 was firmly in King's corner despite her outbursts, prompting her to call them her "all-time audience in ten years...they were really good to me, I'll never forget it."

Top prize in Denver was $6,000.

The BBC does a documentary on the tour filmed in Denver. The show was produced and narrated by Vincent Harra.

Wade barely made it past Fuchs, who led 6-4 5-5 and 0-40 on Wade's serve. Virginia scores a notable win in beating Margaret Court for only the 3rd time in 20 meetings. The key game is at 3-3, turning into an 8 deuce struggle that sees Wade save 4 break points and win on her 5th game point. The New York Times credits her with "Brilliant lobs".

The final is a cakewalk for Evonne, perhaps due in part to Wade's mental fatigue from upsetting Court. The other half of the equation is Evonne's "near perfection", according to the NYT. "The Australian was deadly at the net, where she caught Miss Wade out of position several times." It was all over in 47 minutes.

Top prize was $4,400 for Goolagong. Men's winner Ilie Nastase took home $11,000
