Newport native son Jimmy Van Alen is aptly on hand for a final featuring two tiebreaks. Allen was the inventor of the tiebreak.

The two hour 2 minute final is a classic. Durr fought off 8 match points before yielding. The stylish Frenchwoman foughjt off two mps at 4-5 in the second set and 2 at 4-5 in the third. At 5-6 in the third she saves 2 more. Finally she was down 2-4 in the tiebreak. Fighting back, she leveled to 4 all.

The crowd goes wild the reaches sudden-death point, a match point for both women. Kerry won the sudden death point by coming in a Durr's serve. Kerry hit it into the backhand corner then hit a forehand volley crosscourt winner into the open court.

This is the only final in women's tennis history decided on a sudden death point.

Per the NYT the final was August 30.

A pregnant Ann Jones calls lines. Her husband pip in the manager of the Pro Tour.

2R: Truman/Wade d J Sawamatsu/Subirats 6-0 6-0
2R: Bowrey/Gourlay d Fuchs/Louis eGonnerman 6-1 6-2

SF: Cancelled at SF stage.

After her opening match vs Stove (who often gave Chris trouble on grass but never beat her) Evert easily won her other matches. Chris had to turn down the top prize of $1,500.

Wade breaks her ankle due to nasty spill-she's out of the US Open though seeded #3 there. Bowrey has to return home when she learns of her father's death and will miss the US Open as well.
Gourlay lost only 21 points in a 6-1 6-1 drubbbing of Joyce Williams.

Hogan's temper hurt her-she went down in a 2 hour 20 minute match.

Check seeding. Was Stove the #4 seed or Evert?
