DF: Rosie Casals/Billie Jean King d Margaret Court/Evonne Goolagong default (due to death of Court's mother)

An incredibly strong field. With the top 5 players the field is arguably stronger than all the slams this year with the exception of Wimbledon. The top knotch field even results in more prize money for the women-almost unheard of in 1971.

Goolagong has a post Wimbledon let down, going down to Patti Hogan in the QF. On the second show court King had a classic duel vs Wade. Ginny claws back from 1-5 down in the first, saves a set point at 7-8, then holds a set point of her own at 10-9 up. King finally won it in straight sets after 34 games.

Billie Jean turned right around and spoiled Margaret Court's 29 birthday. King again saves a set point at 30-40 4-5 in the second set . At 5-6 Court saves two match points and has 3 game points. The pivotal 5 deuce gamefinally ended in King's favor. After the match Court learns her mother has passed away and drops out of the doubles final. Mags soon learns she is pregnant and drops off the tour altogether for the rest of 1971. Oddly enough there had been rumors in the press of King and Court possibly teaming up in the US Doubles together. The rivals never did play doubles with each other in a major.

The final was poorly played. King edged Casals as usual, but neither woman played up to her usual standard. Rosie looked set to mount a possible comeback in set two but gets unnerved by a foot fault call.

Rothmans must have been pleased with attendance. Crowds of over 20,000 came through the overcrowded gates.
