Top seed Goolagong withdrew due to flue before the tournament; leaving a huge hole at the top of the draw.

With upsets clearing the way, Sue Barker wins over teen newcomer Ros Fairbank. it was a battle of big forehands, with Barker having the bigger guns. Ros had to qualify just to reach the main draw. This win helps Barker claim the #10 spot on the year-end rankings. Barker said: "This is the best I have played in two years. I really wanted to win this one. I was hungry. I'm convinced I can break back into the top 5 in the next 12 months."

Billie Jean King's quest to qualify for the Colgate Series Championships ends at the hands of Bettyann Stuart's fast serve,clocked at 170 kph in searing heat of over 100 degrees. Speaking of heat, Stuart's attractive face and halter top dress make her a photographer's delight.

Fairbank is the real story of the week. Starting out ranked 106 in the world, this attacking South African was staying in a $7 dollar a night YMCA in Sydney. Ros won 4 of 5 events and 22 of 23 matches on the aussie satellite cicuit leading up to here. In Sydner she captured 7 straight matches (3 in qualifying) before falling to Barker in the final.

6,000 see the finals.
