Another early loss for Betty Stove, who will quickly fall out the top ten for good by mid-1979.

Martina's serve is like a juggernaut in the final, she loses only 5 points serving the entire match! It's Navratilova's 4th consecutive Houston win-sweet since she has settled in Dallas.

Wade: "Martina is the strongest player at the net. for power and speed. She has the best first volley around, and her serve is so tough it takes you a set to get used to it."

Navratilova has won 4 consecutive title in Houston-a run of 20 matches.

The match of the event was the QF tussle Martina had with Virginia Ruzici. "Vergie" was up a set 1-0, but Martina broke at 5-4 to win the second. "I had my chances", proclaimed the Rumanian after the 100 minute match.

Wade hit 7 aces in her semi win over Turnbull.

Total attendance=27,990.
