A stunning development as Greer Stevens trounces the ever-steady Chris Evert in round one. This is only the second time in Evert’s career that she has lost before the quarterfinals in any event. Even more remarkable is the routine straight-set nature of the win. From 3-2 Stevens reels off 6 consecutive games-making only 6 errors in that stretch. Chris on the shocker: "Greer played very well. She is a hit or miss player and tonight she wasn't missing anything." Stevens said: "Tonight I hit every forehand as hard as I could."

Sue Barker shows promise that ’79 will be an improvement over a dismal ’78 with an upset over Austin.

Stevens proves it’s no fluke as she dumps Fromholtz to win the event. Dianne serves two doubles faults at 3-3 in the last set. Greer's biggest win is "miraculous". The South African had knee surgery in 1978 requiring over 300 stitches and wears a mechanical knee-brace that leaves onlookers wondering how she can even move. Stevens decides to bank the money to save for her dream, a cow farm she plans to open with fiancee Ken Smith.
