The only WT/Slims Tour outside of the US is a wild success-and in Italy of all places.

The early upset belongs to Gail Chanfreau. Gail often falls victim to caramps in heat. Against Francoise Durr she overcame the hot conditions to save 2 match points. Clay court maven Helga Masthoff used all her tricks and wiles to down Julie Heldman, Billie jean King, and Rosie Casals to claim the top prize of $4,400. She held on trrailing King 2-6 2-4 and again at 1-4 and 5-6 in the third.

Helga also came back in the final. She was down 6-3 3-1. Some in the crowd started to leave, but then she came back to win the middle set 6-4. At 2 all in the third the match was suspended due to darkness. Rosie had a flight to make the next day for the event in Houston. She wanted the prize money to be divided. a talk with Billie Jean convinced her to change her mind, and the women went on court Monday morning at a mind boggling 8 AM. Helga quickly won 4 of the next 5 games to win the biggest prize of her career to date.

Full crowds (1,500) and national TV for the semis and final.
