FI: Margaret Court/Lesley Hunt [3] d Rosie Casals/Billie Jean King [1] 6-2 6-2

The whole event was played under VASS rules-basically a total "no-Ad" scorng system with no deuces. when players split sets in the qualifying the first to 2 games won in place of a third set. The tirbreak games were best of 5 points. This lasted until the QF, when the USTA demanded the traditional scoring be employed or the event forfeit Grand Prix status. The women voted to go on under the VASS and the USTA never followed through with their threat.

Oddly enough almost every match in the singles draw was won in straight sets. Only Pigeon-Gourlay went the "distance." Margaret Court declares herself finally "back" after running roughshod over Evert and King on consecutive days. Chris only managed 3 games, Billie Jean 5. Margaret declared, "I'm serving better than I have in my career and after losing some weight seem to be moving better too."

One entertaining point in the Court-Evert semi saw Margaret Volley back 5 sizzling drives from evert-passing shots that no other woman would have gotten.

Attendance records were broken from the very first day.

Second seed Pat Pretorius double faults at match point down to lose a 2R encounter.

Wade takes the final before a capacity crowd of 2,500 in sweltering 92 degree heat. Her prize is $1,100. Virginia stayed back more than usual on grass, using her topsin forehand and a backhand slice to break up Fleming's two-handed backhand. Wade hit 2 aces and 21 winners and 28 errors-Fleming has 12 winners and 38 errors. Wade took 15 straight points during one stretch in the second.

FI: Marina Kroshina/Olga Morozova d Carole Graebner/Patti Hogan 6-7 6-2 6-2

Hogan let a match point get away vs Graebner. Carole went on court after her husband got upset. Clark took care of Clark (age 5) and Cameron (4) while mom tookcare of business on court.

The second game of the Morozova-Tuero match goes 18 points, but what looks like a close match is setled in straights. The is the first all-Russian women's final in the US.

The Women's Pro Tour offered to provide money if the draw could be doubled from 8 to 16. The offer was turned down, so Newport took in the extra women.
