A Long Way Baby: 1973 US Open
For those interested, TTC is currently airing a half-hour program which primarily consists of highlights from the 1973 US Open and IMO is worth checking out. One particularly interesting, lengthy point btwn Court and (Chris) Evert in their semifinal starts off the program...it then goes on to display brief clips of Reid, King, Casals, Court, Chris and Jeanne Evert, Morozova and others in play, then features points from key matches in the Open that year. BJK's uncharacteristic loss to Julie Helman is shown (King looks completely exhausted), as well as matches btwn Goolagong and Helga Mashoff (sp?), Court and Evert, Court and Goolagong and others. On the men's side, Newcombe and Kodes and Newcombe and Rosewall matches are also featured. It's a tad grainy quality-wise, and of course, all-too-brief, but still, not a bad "postcard" to view from the period.
