With 6 of the top ten present, an unseeded Hana wins her first big event. She is only 17, barely of age to drive the big shiny Toyota that is one of her prizes.

The final had an incident over a line call. At 3-5 down Wendy had a break point on Hana's serve at 30-40. A Mandlikova volley looked well long, but no out call came. Turnbull was never the same afterwards and went down tamely in a 65 minute final.

Hana of her dream run: "Today I won my biggest tournament against the best player I could have played in the final. I'm very happy."

The top two seeds went out early. Goolagong was done in by flu. She was on antibiotics before and during the event. After her first round match she was so eager to get off court she uncharacteristically refused to do an on court interview. Evonne defaulted right before her next match despite the fact her family had driven 400 miles to see her.

King, searching for a spot at the Colgate Championships, went out in the quarters vs Ruzici. Billie Jean blew a set point in the tirebreak and never won another game.

Good crowds all week, with 8,000 for Goolagong's first match.

Combined event with prize money of $175,000-most of which went towards the men, as for them this was a Colgate Grand Prix event. The women are a minor sideshow. The NYT report noted that Cuypers "mixed her shots well" in beating Harford in the women's final on December 1st.
