It's a little surprising that she didn't go down under at Christmas 72-73 to try and make it four in a row. She was so committed to the VS tour at that point, though. I see she entered San Francisco in mid-Jan but withdrew because of a wrist injury. Maybe she was in a bad way physically after such a heavy 1972 schedule.
Also, she's very negative about the Australian season in the late 60s in her autobiographies (she says in 65 they had been wonderful but they did not welcome the pro's) - it could be that she took a decision not to go back.

Casals-Wade was quite an interesting rivalry. It was 12-11 in favor of Wade when Virginia won a match in Boston in 1979. Wade calls Rosie her "bete noir" in her autobio.

Rosie called Wade a bad sport for arguing calls more than once. In one match Casals was so pissed she held onto Virginia's hand long after the handshake and wouldn't let go:)

When told that Casals complained of her behavior Wade replied"
"Rosie is a good sport. I never pretend to be a good sport." :angel:


If the stat is right the final tally was in favor of Wade 14-11.

The 63 62 score at Perth leads me to think that Rollo's right and World of Tennis got their knickers in a twist.

Excellent Post Rollo, I have many of the 1965 to 70 finals that I will post. I read in Court's book that Bueno beat her 6 times and I can't remember the amount for Court.

Thanks Macn:)

Once we pool all out results together it will be an impressive list. BJK did very well on clay in 1971-even beating old nemesis Nancy Richey. On the other hand Durr beat Billie Jean twice on the dirt that year. It's a shame King didn't enter Roland Garros that year.

None of the top women managed all 4 slams in 1971.

I'll amend the post, Rollo. Have also another Jones:Bueno match to add. It looks as if they had a lot of tight matches. I have very little info for the period 62-67 (other than for the slams), hence the gap in the H2H (and my enthusiasm for the finals database :)).

Jones beat King at Madison Square Garden NY 64 64 in 1968 (don't know if this was a tourney or part of the pro' tour). As part of McCall's tour King beat Jones in Oakland, Portland, Seattle and Los Angeles (17-15 64) in 1969

I'll try and collate the King-Richey results I have - that'll be an interesting one as they had quite a fierce rivalry, didn't they.

Well that's about it for tonite ... let me know what other years and months you are interested in and I will see what I have. I have several boxes of magazines from the 1950s onwards (mainly 60s and early -mid 70s though)

Thanks a mill Tennisvideos! :Worship:

This thread looks messy now, but when we're done we will have a better view of all these head to heads

And who knows-we might even get a clear count of how many titles Durr won so we can clue in the Tennis Hall of Fame:)

Here's a few I found, I don't know if I am duplicating the results. I see that you count Fed cup for victories, do Whitman Cup count also. King defeated Jones and Wade numerous times during the competition. Durr must be an underated player because I see she was in many finals and beat just about everyone except Court and Evert.
