Jo McCall pulled his 4 women pros out of the Victorian Open after the draw had been made, citing conflicts with the Aussie LTA. McCall is asking for aboput $10,000 appearance money for his 16 pros (the other 12 being men). The Victorian (with lengendary Harry Hopman leading the way) LTA refused, leading to an impass. Hobart and Sydney had previously agreed to these terms. The whole imbroglio casts a gloom over the upcoming Australian Open.

The draw was remade. Court cruised through the now weakened field, winning her 6th Victorian title. Earlier in the week Margaret declared she was planning on retirement at the end of 1969, a shock announcement considering she had come out of retirement at the end of 1967. "There will be no more tours and no more tournaments. I probably will do some professional coaching 2 or 3 days a week, but in the main I will just be a housewife."

Was it the lure of open tennis or otrher factors that made her go on? Nothing else was said about retirement after this event, and in fact she was to play on until 1977!

4,000 were on hand for the final. Court won $666 for the title.
