A historic event-for by winning the final Billie Jean becomes the first woman ever to win more than $100,000 US in one year. The crowd gives her a 10 minute ovation as Billie Jean and Rosie pour champagne over each other in celebration. This was Virginia Slims last event of the year. Against all odds the circuit has been a smash success with Mrs. King it's leading lady. Pro women's tennis is here to stay.


Ends October 3 Redwood Bank International Open (Pacific Coast) , Berkely, California, US (Hard)

SF: Barbara Downs d Pam Austin 6-2 6-3
SF: Marcie Louie d Laurie Tenney 3-6 7-5 5-2 retired

FI: Marcie Louie d. Barbara Downs 7-5 6-3

DF: Anderson/Barbara Downs d. Kate Latham/Laurie Tenney default

No foreign entries-women a sideshow next to big men's event. Might have been totally amateur event with no prize money.
