Draw note:

Christina Sandberg qualified but did not play-place taken by lucky loser Salli Hudson-Beck. Top prize was $12,000, a huge payday in 1971. In fact, this is the largest top purse to date, with Dallas ($11,000) and the US Open ($10,000) ar second and third. The facilities are so nice that King suggests the US Open could be moved from New York to Charlotte."These are probably the best facilities in the country right now. There is no reason why the US Open shouldn't be held on clay."

15 year old Kathy Kuykendall had vet Casals on the ropes in the 1R but couldn't deliver the knockout blow. Kathy served for the match at 6-5 in the seocnd and had a match point at sudden-death in the tiebreak. Rosie rolled to a comfortable win in the third. Nancy Gunter dodged 2 mps vs Overton.

Billie Jean celebrates turning 24 by beating Casals. Her win over Court demonstrates her current dominance on the tour follwing her US Open win. King's play was sterling from start to finish.

Court must have enjoyed Carolina, as she signs on to become the resident pro at the Seven Devils Mountain Resort in Boone, North Carolina.
