The richest women's only event of the year. 58 women duke it out for 4 spots in the main draw. Jill Cooper gets in as a lucky loser after a pregnant Margaret Court withdraws. Jill must truly be under a lucky star, as she also got a LL sport at Hurlingham when Anne Jones got pregnant.

Prize money had originally been a paltry $2,500 earlier in the year. When Margaret Court got wind of the prize money on the Slims circuit she changed her plans to play Cincy. The USTA and ILTF then threatened to ban her. Court basically told them to go ahead. In the end a pregnant Court dropped off the circuit and the USTA ponied up more money to get a decent field.

Wade won $1,800 for taking home the title.

Draw note: #8 seed in Wade's half of the draw either missing/withdrew/ or non existent.

Biggest news of the week goes to Margaret Court. She originally had scheduled a press conference in New York to announce she was joining the Virginia Slims circuit. Instead the prolific Aussie announces she will not play Forest Hills and is dropping off the tour due to a pregnancy. Court states she return to the tour in some form after having her child. When reminded that Ann Jones also pulled out due to being pregnant she quiped, "The Courts have to keep up with the Joneses."
