90 pound Jeanne Evert sends shock waves through the event on the opening day when she prevails over Margaret Court. Court suffers from leg cramps. "I started having cramps in the middle of the second set. I was trying to drop shot her so I wouldn't have to run so much."

Jeannie: "I'm dissapointed for her. she had the match won. I don't really consider this a victory."

Stove: "I had nothing to lose, so I tried to make her run a lot. I had lost to Nancy in the past, but I think maybe the fact that I had to play qualifying matches helped me."

Melville has 3 set points on Evert at 5-2 40-0.

Chris before the final: "I think this tournament is the calibre of Forest Hills. It's not a grudge match, but I am eager to play her."
