March 7-8 Los Angeles Professional Championships, Los Angeles, California, United States

1R: Ann Jones (GB) d. Francoise Durr (Fra) 6-3 6-4

FI: Billie Jean King d. Ann Jones (GB) 17-15 6-3

The crowd of 7,000 boos when a tiebreak is announced at 12-12. Both King and Jones refuse to play a tiebreak, and a happy crowd gets their moneys worth. Billie Jean got a standing ovation when she won the 17-15 set. The men were playing as early as March 3.

SF: Court [1] d. Tegart 7-5 6-2
SF: Bueno d. Bowrey 8-6 6-3

FI: Margaret Court (Aus) [1] d. Maria Bueno (Brz) default (Arm injury)

Doubles

?R: Marilyn Ashner/ Peaches Bartkowicz d. Patti Hogan/Faye Urban 6-4 6-1

FI: Margaret Court (Aus)/Judy Tegart (Aus) d. Karen Krantzcke (Aus)/Kerry Melville (Aus) 7-5 8-6*

Fans must have been severely dissapointed when the final isn't played. The Court-Bueno rivalry spanned the 1960s and was THE main attraction during that time. Though Maria makes brief comebacks in 1974 and 1977 the arm injury essentially puts an end to her career as a contender for majors. The Brazilian spitfire enraptured most audiences who had the joy of watching this most graceful of players.

*The NYT reports the doubles score as 7-5 9-7
