Before a packed house of 5,00 Tracy routs Martina to announce her arrival at the top echelon of women’s tennis. Austin never drops serve, facing only 3 break points the entire match. Martina looked set to rally at 3-5 in the first, having 2 break points on Austins' serve. A missed backhand and an overhead error got Tracy back to deuce, then austin closed it out.

Martina afterwards, 'I wasbn't patient enough in the long rallies. Actually I did ok during the rallies, but then on the next point I didn't want to go through a long rally again, and I got impatient going for a winning shot."

Austin's test came in the QF vs Shriver. This was their first meeting as seniors, and Pammy's home town
connections (she hails from nearby Maryland) helped spur her on. When Shriver won the second set the crowd gave her a standing ovation. Austin quickly shot out ahwead in the third and never let go.

Richards overcome 1 match points at 3-5 down to upset Ruzici in the 1R. This was Renee's first event since undergoing surgery on her left foot in September. Anne Smith upset an erratic Betty Stove, who littered the stat sheet with missed volleys and serves.

Total attendance: 32,500.

Draw note: According to the AP Shriver is the #7 seed and Jausovec #8. For now I am going with the seeds from the WTA site.
