16 year old Sue Barker promises a good future for British tennis when she pushes Virginai Wade in the 2R. sue served for the second set at 5-4, fell behind 5-6 0-40, then won the tiebreak. From 1-1 in the third Wade ran off 5 straight games.

Wade looked as if she might finally break her losing streak to Margaret in the final. Court was suffering from a cold-even taking antibiotics beforehand. When Wade led 6-2 3-2 30-0 she was on the brink. All it took was two "dreadful shots by Miss Wade, who was never in the match again, losing 10 of the next 12 games" (Dolan).

A pregnant Ann Jones (she is 4 months along) plays the doubles and reaches the semis.
