DF: Judy Dalton/Francoise Durr [2]d. Rosie Casals/Billie Jean King [1] 6-4 7-6

Durr's engagement to Virginia Slims' Bill Cutler may be why she's doing so well of late. Frankie upsets Casals and King for the second time year on clay in a Slims evnet, repeating her WLOD tournament win. Billie Jean had to overcome set points vs Hunt and again in winning over Gunter. Billie Jean and Nancy's semi was moved indoors due to rain at 6-6 in the first set. King rallied from 2-5 down in the second set.

Capacity crowds of 2,500 came our on the last 3 days.

August 21-23 Wightman Cup, Cleveland, Ohio, US (Hard)
Venue: Harold T Clark Stadium

United Sates d Great Britain 4-3

Day 3 (August 23)

Val Ziegenfuss d Winnie Shaw (GB) 6-4 4-6 6-3
Chris Evert d. Virginia Wade (GB) 6-1 6-1
Winnie Shaw/Virginia Wade (GB) d Chris Evert/Carole Graebner 10-8 4-6 6-1

4,000 watch as Chris rips through Wade in 40 minutes. Virginia made numerous errors. In the words of World Tennis, "It was one of her bad, bad days." Evert stayed calm through Wade's grumpy complaints and the delay with the court literally coming apart at the seams. The rubberized surface had to be repaired twice in the first set after sections of it came up on Wade's side. Evert's win clinches the Cup for the US. The competition cements Evert's status as an up and coming star.
