FI: Rosie Casals (US)/Billie Jean King (US) d. Karen Krantzcke/Kerry Melville 2-6 6-2 6-3

Darw note: Dolan lists Seirei Cho as From Japan. I have Taiwan. Which is correct? The start date I have comes from the New York Times.

Billie Jean credits Kerry's "improved play" for her upset in the QF. She then notes she "needs more match practice." The NYT wrote King fought hard "but was badly off form". This is King's first event back after knee surgery. Melville streaks on to take the title in a 50 minute final, indicating she has recovered from the breakup of an engagement that negatively affected her in 1968.
