December 7-10* Clean Air Classic, New York, New York, US (Indoors on Supreme Court)
Venue: Seventh Regiment Armory

Prize Money= $75,000 (combined men and women) Women's prize money was $15,000

Draw=8

1R: Virginia Wade [1] d Carole Caldwell Graebner 6-3 6-3
1R: Francoise Durr [3] d Linda Tuero 6-2 6-2
1R: Val Ziegenfuss d Wendy Overton [4] 6-2 7-6
1R: Rosie Casals [2] d Betty Stove 6-1 6-3

SF: Wade [1] d Durr [3] 6-1 6-2*
SF: Casals [2] d Ziegenfuss 6-4 5-7 6-3

FI: Virginia Wade [1] d Rosie Casals [2] 6-3 6-3

Nancy Gunter originally the #1 seed broke her nose before the start of the event. Played under the VASS system, where the first person to win 4 points takes the game. Thus there are no deuces.

Francoise Durr is trying out a new backhand-flattening out the shot. "after 15 years I thought I could not change. Poof, a new stroke. I feel so good." One thing hasn't changed-she still uses the frying pan grip she is famous for.

Perhaps she was less confident in the backhand after Wade "routed" her in the semis. Virginia went on to take the $6,000 top prize-a haul of $2,000 per hour. The men's winner here won $10,000 US.

In explaining her success Wade said, "I'm thinking more on court now. I never used to think. Now I'm more relaxed on the court and moving well. And when I'm relaxed, I'm confident."

2,5000 see the finals, which are televised.

Draw notes:
The 32 player men's field started play on December 4.
