If you can find a source I will reconsider this.

May 6-12 Sutton Hard Court Tournament (Clay)
...
Q1: Elizabeth Locke d. Kaye Hallam 6-2 6-1
Q2
Q3
1R: Kaye Hallam d. Mary Sawyer 6-2 6-2
Hallam should have been a wildcard into main draw, but why?
in Lee on Solent there are again Hallam lost in Q1 and plays R1, but this time there are different first names Kerri/Kaye given. Is it possible that in Sutton the qualifyer also is Kerri not Kaye?

Yes indeed. According to my 1980 WTA Media Guide Kerri was Kay'e younger sister.

And you are correct about the NSW event being part of the Colgate Series. It was part of the 1980 Colgate Series, which is why it wasn't showing up on my list.

Thanks Peter:)

Still updated.

Re: 1979 results
May 30-June 6 Trophee Pernod Masters, Bournemouth, England, UK (Clay)

[...]

Masters finale for the Trophee Pernod mini-Circuit
Does this equal the British Hard Court Chasmpionships for 1979?
I wouldn't believe it.
Re: Tournament Winners by Event

[...]

British Hard Court Championships
[...]
1976 Helga Niessen Masthoff (Frg) d. Sue Barker 5-7 6-3 6-2
1977 not held
1978 Iris Riedel (Frg) d. Belinda Thompson 62 61
1979-1980 not held
1981 Jo Durie d. Sophie Amiach (Fra) 75 16 63
1982-1994 not held
1995 Ludmila Richterova (Cz) d. Patricia Hy Boulais (Can) 6-7(10) 6-4 6-3
The winner's roll is more plausible.

I is like questioning if the tournament in Doha 2010 (SEC) is same as in Doha 2011 (Qatar Ladies Open).


--------------------------------

November 26-December 2 South African Open, Johannesburg, South Africa (Hard)
[...]

Combined event with prize money of $175,000-most of which went towards the men, as for them this was a Colgate Grand Prix event. The women are a minor sideshow. The NYT report noted that Cuypers "mixed her shots well" in beating Harford in the women's final on December 1st.
:confused:
no Johannesburg listed as WTA between 1978 and 1984
