(From World Tennis): Margaret Court didn't play here as she wasn't contacted by the tournament. Aussie sportswriter Gordon Schwartz wrote: "In view of the fact Evonne Goolagong was guarenteed $1500, air fares and accomadation...., it is a tragedy that a sponsor was not found for Mrs Court."

#rd annaul event-this is the first year women were included. The surface was a slippery as glass according to the players. Francoise Durr was uanble to come to Jamaica when she lost her passport, stranding her in Miami. Accoridng to World Tennis, "Even though Rosie was not at her best, Julie worked sensibly to keep her talented opponent from getting in the groove and generallt gave every indication of greater things to come next year."
