Re: Evonne Goolagong

I agree Peter! After losing early in Canada Evonne went on a tear to win several events in Australia.

Here's a pic of new mom Evonne with her daughter Inala in 1977

Evonne in 1971 at the Canadian. For some reason her manager/handler Vic Edwards did not let her play the US Open.



Evonne at the 1971 Canadian-the surface looks like clay

Re: Evonne Goolagong

Thank you Rollo. I’ve never seen a photo of Evonne at the ‘77 Canadian. Interesting she doesn’t have a clothing sponsor yet and is still using the wood Dunlop, which she also used a few weeks later at Hilton Head. In her book she states she took the time off to get her teeth fixed. I think she had them capped. She straightened her hair at this time too. A complete make over for Miss Sunshine! Her daughters name is actually Kelly. Inala is her middle name. Why do I know all of this? Haha.

Re: Evonne Goolagong

Always nice to see Evonne. Did another ever happen with changing the name of one of the AO show courts to EGC Arena? I wish they would. The reverend Mags is such a backwards beastie.
