Re: 1983

This NYT report sheds more light on the 1983 French mixed final.

Miss Allen Cites Insults - NYTimes.com

Miss Allen Cites Insults

Published: June 7, 1983

Leslie Allen was back home in New York yesterday, still angry over unpleasant experiences in Paris that caused her to give up plans to play in the Wimbledon tennis championships later this month.

At the French Open last week, Miss Allen aggravated a knee injury, lost many of her belongings in a hotel burglary and heard vulgar epithets shouted at her on court by an opponent, Eliot Teltscher, during the mixed-doubles final on Saturday. Subsequently, she withdrew from the Edgbaston Cup tournament, which began yesterday in Birmingham, England, and from Wimbledon.

''I was disappointed about my knee, and also I thought if someone calling me names on the court is going to get me so upset, I must be frustrated with the way I'm playing,'' she said. ''So I decided to withdraw and get ready for other tournaments later on.''

Miss Allen, who is black, said the names that Teltscher had called her were sexist in nature, not racist as some reports had said. She said the incident happened with Teltscher and Barbara Jordan leading her and Charles Strode, 6-2, 5-2.

''Late in the match, I questioned a line call,'' she said. ''He got very upset and started yelling like crazy. We lost that point, then we changed over, and in my own frustration, I knocked over a water bottle with my racquet. That's when he made this very obscene remark.''

She asked the umpire if he would penalize Teltscher, but the umpire said he had not heard the remark. She said she planned to report the matter to the International Men's Professional Tennis Council.
