Draw Notes:

Having no exact draws for the doubles and mixed means those draws are not in exact draw order.

Betsy Abbas of Egypt is also listed as from France in some sources. She may have had dual citizenship.
Mme Grandguillot formerly Bucaille.
Alicia Heegewaldt (Chile) is also listed as Alice.
RG incorrectly lists Gwyn Thomas losing to #11 seed Hopps. In fact it was Dawn Thomas.

Missing Names

M. Borriche probably=Maisy Borriche, but it came from the NYT and the print was hard to read, so treat this name with caution.
Mrs J. A. Lawrence of Great Britain

Missing Male Names

Huet
Verdier

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

Summary:

Truman wins the French just 3 years after compatriot Angela Mortimer. Christine's big breakthrough came in the semis vs Sandra Reynolds, who had beaten her in Rome. Early on the South African cultivated a lead, as she "exploited slow, mid court shots with initially telling effect. Miss Truman had to yield the first set and trailed by 4-5, with Miss Reynolds serving.The South African, however, could not sustain the advantage in the face of her own growing exhaustion." (Dawson's p.125).

Defending champ Kormoczy demolished all in her way as she glided into the final. A teenager of merely 18 vs the 34 year old made for a contrast, accentuated by Truman's penchant to whack big forehands and come in to volley away floaters for winners. At 6-4 5-3 Truman was on the cusp of victory, but the wily vet changed tactics and took two straight games by volleying repeatedly, a strategy tried out of desperation. At 5 all though Truman blew hot again and the final break secured victory.

Thanks to Peter203 for help with the draw.

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

Summary:

The home advantage was on full display early on as 48 year old Maud Galtier, grandmother of two, beats Ruia Morrison serving underhanded.

In the 3R Suzy Koromozy's hopes of repeating her Italian win are dashed when she goes over on an ankle vs Egyptian Betsy Abbas. Abbas gets another retirement when Aussie Mary Hawton also turns her ankle 3 points into their 4th round match. This Abbas becomes the first Egyptian female in a Grand Slam quarterfinal.

Through this carnage came serve and volley stylist Darlene Hard. The #6 seed survives a roller coaster ride to win the world's premier clay court event. No champion has ever had such a perilous journey. Miss Hard lost 3 sets and 66 games in her 6 matches. She was only a game from defeat vs. Italian Lazzarion when Silvana had to retire after becoming faint-the Italian up 5-4. Then Hard dodged two match points vs. Schuurman in the quarters.

Ironically her easiest match was vs. world #1 Maria Bueno in the semis. Hard "surprised a capacity crowd of 14,000 with the easy manner in which she defeated Miss Bueno."

Tiny Mexican Yola Ramirez was the finalist from the bottom half of the draw. Yola nervously starts the final with a double fault to immediately hand the blond Californian a break. The tiny Yola rallies to 4 all in the second to make it close but gets broken. With a powerful smash the 6th seeded Hard becomes a surprise winner.

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

Summary:

The first time in ages that no American reached the quarters. It was a wet and cold French, with upsets galore and many mishaps. Betting favorite Bueno went out in the quarterfinals. It was later determined she was suffering form jaundice. As a result Maria and doubles partner Darlene defaulted the dobles final. Mary Reitano wrenched her knee and was in a cast. Margaret Smith had foot cramps in her long match with Haydon to the point where she was crying on court.

The surprise of the event was pretty Pilar Barril, who produced upsets to go all the way to the quarters. Her prime victim was top tenner and Aussie finalist Jan Lehane. Pilar and her fans were making the signs of the cross throughout her hard fought win!

Defending champ Darlene Hard put in a disgraceful performance vs. Buding in Rd 4. "Spectators wondered if she were ill. She hardly bothered to look at the ball. She hit feet over the baseline in all directions or into the net, as though she couldn't care less, and smiled happily all the way. One wonders what the committee of the French Championship, which paid handsomely for her presence, felt about this".

Suzy dropped and lobbed an off-form Bueno in their quarterfinal. Smith chose to play Haydon from the baseline and paid dearly for it. The two sets took two hours. As Smith got cramps Ann "waited cooly at the other end to see if her opponent could continue. A few points later it was over. Margaret is only 18 and this is her first trip abroad. The talent is there and the experience will come.

With the big 3 of Bueno, Hard, and Smith out, it was Ann Haydon who stepped in and took her first major. A human backboard, she simply refused to miss.

The final was dull and uninteresting, as Haydon waited for Yola to make an error. The Mexican got off to a promising start at 2 love and then things quickly fell apart for her. A strong wind swept center court, which neither woman had played on until the final! Yola tried for winners and missed, often overshooting the baseline. The pretty Mexican with the white bandana thus bowed out of her second French final. To this day she remains the only female slam finalist from Mexico.

In fashion news. Ted Tinling designed a dress made of paper for Italian Silvana Lazzarino.

Crowds often filled the seats for the women's matches on outside courts, while center court (occupied by the men most of the event) was empty except except for the final. The overall attendance numbers were so dreadful the French now strongly support the idea of "open" tennis. On the semifinal day for the doubles on a wet day only 27 paid for tickets to watch.

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

Summary:

The coldest French to date. The event was lacking Maria Bueno and Darlene Hard, who opted for playing exhibitions in Germany. The German tour paid more in "expense money" than the French.

In an early round French player Aline Nenot took aset off top tenner Truman 7 months after giving birth to triplets.

In the QFs South African Sandra Reynolds Price was unable to find her rhythm on her booming forehand. "The vicious forehand was missing it's mark, and without it Sandra is not very dangerous. Turner " ran miles, buzzing like a little bee around the court..and never once did the expression on her pretty face change!". In the semis Lesley let 2 match points slip away in set two and fell behind 0-3 in the decider before pulling it out.

The other semi was also worth admission, as Schuurman sent passing shots at Margaret Smith. Smith survived a set point when Sandra's ball hit the net and landed back on her side. From then on the air went out of the South African's game and Smith never looked back after closing the first at 8-6.

Wind made the final tricky. "The public, never very easygoing in Paris, participated with vocal chords in full blast during every exchange". Turner got to match point at 5-3 but missed a volley, after which her nerves deserted her. Smith served two winners at 4-5 to even the score. She had played defense, a style unsuited to her game, almost the whole match. The last 3 games she played like a champ and swept Turner off the court. Smith's "overhead was wild and she made a lot of unnecessary mistakes. But she wonthe match, and that is the mark of a champion." Smith entered the doubles with American Bricka because the Aussie Tennis Association is ostracizing her. Other Aussie women are under orders not to practice or associate with the World #1. Most of the Aussie public and press think their LTA is being idiotic and support Margaret.

Summary
:

Darlene Hard [3] and Suzi Kormoczy were expected but failed to appear. Darlene claimed the French refused to pay her expenses after the withdrawal of Maria Bueno. "The biggest surprise of the tournament was the elimination of Margaret Smith by Vera Sukova. Margaret is essentially thre best player in the world today, but she has not yet learned to dominate her nerves", according to the WT reporter. Vera varied her game while Smith "tried too hard to make winners." Vera used the Aussie's pace against her good effect. Unfortunately for the Czech Ann Jones gave her no pace in the semis. In fact, the Brit was hardly giving away even a game, droppingonly 5 games in 5 matches to reach the final! In the process she racked up 5 staright loves sets. Jones led 5-2 in the third set before tiring. Turner started to come in and angle away short volleys to take 5 games for the championship, wiping out the nightmare of 1962 when Smith saved a match point in the final.

Ann Jones won the ladies with Schuurman after fending off accusations she was being unpatriotic for not partnering a fellow Brit. Ann said that "half a title is better than none", adding that she had been "patient enough" waiting years for a good English player to emerge.

"Toto" Brugnon and Jean Borotra are in the mixed. They are 2 of the famous French Muskateers from the 1930s!

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

Summary:

Schultze upset Lehane in an exciting match lasting 2 hrs and 58 minutes. Lehane was up a set and almost closed it out in two after coming back from 1-5 to tie it. As often happens with Jan she then suffered from bad luck when she fell heavily in chasing down a drop volley. Schultze took the next 2 games to tie it at a set apiece.

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

2. ???? Weegner.

Notes: Thanks to Chris Whiteside:worship:

The fourth round match between Bueno and Sheriff was notable for the umpire footfaulting Maria from the chair on a number of occasions. A spectator eventually went to the referee's office and he came to courtside during the ten minutes break (that was allowed in those days if a match reached 1 set all) to inform the umpire that Maria was not to be footfaulted from the chair.
Comments British Lawn Tennis - Maria footfaults by moving forward onto the line. A courtside statement that it was not possible for the umpire to watch this and the ball was quickly proved wrong; there was time to look at the foot and then say "foot first and then the ball" before Maria actually struck her service. She was not footfaulted in the final set. One wonders why the French Championships Committee do not print in the programme "the footfault rule is not applied in these championships."

Lesley Turner pinned an apprehensive Maria Bueno to the baseline and passed her often when she did advance. Bueno's lack of faith in her ability to outrally Turner tempted her into excesses of rashness and flashes of uneasy brilliance which gained the solid hitting little Australian revenge for three previous defeats.

Margaret Smith matched Nancy Richey from back court and and had an advantage at the net. Miss Richey faltered too often on the forehand, especially when the returns were low and short, to capture even a set.

In the final Margaret Smith's nervousness was more an utter loss of confidence for only at the start of the second set did she impose any kind of attack. Mostly she allowed herself to be pinned in back court where Lesley's deep, slightly rolled drives kept her back on her heels and defending uncertainly. Miss Turner thumped away industriously and picked her moments for net advances wisely. These were mostly at the end of rallies which had gradually destroyed Margaret's confidence and left her feeling for the ball in the backhand corner.

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

Summary

Nancy ran into "the wall", AKA Ann Jones. Richey "fought as if she were at the Alamo", but Ann got the better of her in long rallies. The one sided score of 6-3 6-1 was deceptive, as it was a tough fought contest of long rallies and games. The first game of the second set went to deuce 12 times and lasted 18 minutes. The game was a decisive one-Jones ran off a 5-0 lead before Nancy made one last stand. Richey wore a knee strap throughout the French.

The Texan has the best ground strokes in tennis, but Jones has an impregnable defense on clay. The clever Brit also has the best drop shot, something Richey does not use as often. The straight set match took 80 minutes.

8,000 were on hand for the finals. The French crowd is famous for "the venomous shush" or whistling over contested calls.

Jones has dropped only 3 sets all year-being undefeated wherever she has gone. She is now champion of Rome and Paris. Her challenge is to extend her streak to grass, where attackers such as Smith, Bueno, and King loom large.

Jones' biggest scare was in the semis, where she was a set and 5-6 down to a hot and cold Maria Bueno. Bueno, back on tour after an 8 month break, was brilliant one minute and hitting balls miles out of court the next. Steadiness won out over brilliance in the end; with Maria wilting under a hot sun as she went down tamely 6-2 in the final set.

"It was pitiful to watch" was the verdict from World Tennis on how poorly Smith was in the other semi. Meanwhile the grim Richey took advantage with high calibre ground strokes. After a 6-2 6-3 drubbing Marge said, "Nancy played extremely well. As for me, I just don't know what happened." Incredibly, only 300 people watched the match in near silence.

A fascinating early round match in the 4th round was between Van Zyl and Baylon. Steady nerves and shots won out, Gloria Butler writes that Norma "gets tied up in knots, questions decisions, glares at spectators who move on the sidelines and concentrates on everything but the ball." Gloria suggests she should copy Nancy Richey, famous for her concentration.

The most visually striing 1R match was between 6' 2" Karen Krantzcke, the tallest female in the event, and little Monica Giorgi, the smallest.

A note from Paris: Julie Heldman

A 20 year old senior on leave from Stanford, Julie got stomped in 44 minutes by Margaret Smith in the quarters, but it's not all bad news. The USTA gives her $8 a day! She hit a good patch in her 5 events before the French (4 in Italy-1 Spain)-so good the USTA will pay for her airfare back to the US. “We cannot go before April, according to the rules, and we have to be back a week after Wimbledon. Otherwise, we are on our own.”

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

Draw notes:

Two sets of sisters were in the doubles: Rosie Reyes Darmon and Patricia Reyes, and Carol and Gail Sherriff

Godefroy=married name of Burel.
#8 seed Carole Graebner withdrew when she discovered she was pregnant.
Mary Habicht listed as US by World Tennis
Billie Jean King absent.
Yvonne Wilkinson of South Africa in World Tennis and confirmed by the New york Times outweighs Kerry Wilkinson (per French site)

Missing

One result in the 1R of the mixed doubles-a probable default. Possibly Carole and Clark Graebner.

Summary:

Notes: Francoise Durr becomes the first French-born winner of a full French title since Simone Mathieu in 1939. Nelly Landry won in 1948, but she was born in Belguim. A crowd of 10,000 saw Durr upset Turner in a close final under a blazing sun, awarding her with a standing ovation. "Frankie", whose mother is a tennis referee, is more steady near the end. On the first match point at 5-4 40-15, Turner keeps the crowd in suspense by winning it after her shots twice hit the net and bounce over. The drama is over when Turner nets a backhand in a long rally.

Durr "threw her racquet as high as the Eiffel Tower" and kissed the unpire and a line-judge. Complete stangers in the crowd kissed as well and Durr received a tumultuous applause as she was awarded the cup and a specially made tri-color bouquet.

The final had started with Turner the heavy favorite. Indeed, Lesley was a two-time champ in Paris who had only lost one set on clay all year!
Durr started with 8 straight winners, a shock for women on clay. However, Turner took the set by teasing errors out of the Frenchwoman, who made numerous soft double faults.

Durr, still attacking when not using the drop and lob, gathered set two. In the third set Durr went down 2-4 after a controversial call elicited howls of protests from the crowd. It looked all over. From that point on though Durr swept 4 games straight, and with it a fairytale ending.

In the semis Turner pounced on Van Zyl's drop shots, putting them away for winners, and Durr "beat the aggressive Miss Melville on sheer steadiness. The young Aussie had a greater variety to her game but took too many chances." Melville would hit a spectacular winner off her forehand or try audacious drop shots and volleys at odd times.

Turner was the favorite going in with a victory in Rome and 2 previous French wins. Other hopefuls included Jones, always solid as a brick wall on clay, world #1 King, testing the French clay for the first time, and Maria Bueno, who for some reason has never won in Paris.

The quarters see 3 stunning upsets, as King, Jones, and Bueno fall on separate courts. Jones looked ready to run away with her match after taking the opener 6-0, but Kerry simply did the near impossible on clay, outdriving Ann. "The bouncy Aussie scampered all over court, making sensational returns." Near the end uncharacteristic double faults by Jones make the difference. Kerry had survived 2 match points vs. Salfati in round 3.

Van Zyl wins her match with Billie Jean by holding serve at 4-4. With 4 breaks until 4-4, it was vital, as a forehand winner down the line seals the upset.

Durr made it a double-as she and partner Gail Sherriff were the unseeded doubles winners, upsetting seeds Casals/King in the qf.

Boteleux=Daniele Wild ???
-------------------------------------
Notes: **These two matches may be reversed in the draw, which I reconstructed from Tennis Corner.

A strike caused more defaults than usual even for the French.
26 defaults was the total for rounds one and two.

In the Paris Spring of 68, with riots, strikes and tear gas, the revolution extended to Roland Garros: Françoise Durr, the holder, and Rosie Casals, both touring pro's, were ousted by Gail Sherriff and Elena Subirats. Top-seeded Billie Jean King reached the semis for the first time in only her second appearance in Paris but there suffered yet another defeat at the hands of her nemesis, Nancy Richey. Margaret Smith-Court skipped the event altogether even though she entered the Fed Cup in Paris the week before the Open. Many others withdrew in the face of the tense political situation.

The title was Ann Jones' for the taking: she was up 5-1 in the first set, but proceeded to lose 11/13 points before clinching the opening set 7-5. She broke away in the second set to a 4-2 lead and the same thing happened: Richey took 15/16 points and this time it was enough to take the set. The final set was a victory parade as Richey became the first open slam event winner in history.

Thanks to Andy T for most of the notes:)

Summary:


Margaret Court's Grand slam dreams almost went up in smoke vs unheralded Morozova, whose attacking game came close to dethroning the defnder in the 3R.

Margaret then had trouble with Rosie Casal's lobs in the quarters. Once she faced down a set point on Rosie's serve though she sailed through.

Billie Jean King said "this is the one I want to win before I retire". King had prepped well, playing on clay events leading up to Roland Garros and winning in Rome. She declared she was "in geat shape physically" and "had never played better."

Her campaign ended in the centre court heat as cramps took her legs out from under her vs Helga Masthoff. Helga won a close second set. King broke to win the first game in the decider, "Playing like a bomb, I was great." Then came the cramps. Billie Jean had taken salt pills to prevent this very thing, but she cramped in both legs, particularly her right. Helga swept the next 6 games for the match.

The key second set saw Helfa save an amazing 18 break points. Twice she held from 0-40 down. On the 18th break point Billie jean slipped on the clay as she was about to hit what loooked like a sure winner, as Helga was out of position.

The semis were duds-Court winning in 42 minutes and Helga in 50. There were only about 70 fans at the start of the Nissen-Krantzcke match. Overall aboutr 2,00 showed. The German wasn't hopeful before the final, stating, "I always lost to her. She's a much more better player than me."

Court led 6-2 3-0 before the heat and Helga started to mount some resistance. Margaret had a point for 4-0 and lost the game. The blonde television commercial model held on by dint of consistency and well timed slices to draw Court in on the German's terms. Suddenly it was 4 all. Helga was feeling the heat too though ("it was spinning"). Court held at 30 , then broke for the second leg of her historic slam.

First prize was $3,204 US.

Draw Notes:


Missing names for:


Match points saved:


3R: Gourlay d. Sawamatsu 3-6 6-2 7-5 (surviving 4 mps in 3rd set)


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


Summary:



Evonne wins the French on her first attempt, a feat not seen since 1956, when Althea Gibson also managed it.

Complaints about balls ("like hitting a melon", according to one player) and the organizers were many. Matches often started late without linespeople or scoreboards.

The upset of the event was the Frenchwoman Lovera's upset of top seed Court, which attracted a large and vocal crowd.

Surprise finalist Gourlay survived 4 match points vs. Sawamatsau in an early round.


NOTE Bob Carmichael and Gail Chanfreau had to actually PLAY their first match of the tournament in the SEMIFINALS, after a bye and three walkovers(!!!!), which they lost.

Draw Notes:

A bizarre and confusing singles draw where seeds had byes in the first two rounds.

Julie Heldman (per wikipedia) in doubles, but strangely not in singles. Clearly, like Nancy Gunter, she never showed for the event

Notes on names:

Mme Billat=Flo e la Courtie Billat
Lucia Bruce of Uruguay (per wikipedia) I have as Sarno
Schallau=maiden name of Mona Guerrant.

Special thanks to Declan

Summary:

Billie Jean King almost skipped Roland Garros. After all, it was on red clay, a surface she detests. Plus she had a cold. And the top prize of $4,000 wasn't a huge facor; she could win more at a regular Virginia Slims event.

Nonetheless she came and stooped to conquer. For by capturing the French King now has a full set of grand slam hardware in single. Indeed, King only lacks an Australian mixed crown for the full set of trophies in all 3 disciplines.

The singles draw was bizarre and confusing. The top seeds had byes in the first two round! The idea was endorsed by the seeds, male and demale. Thus the first few days quiet ones. Fans complain bitterly and stayed away in droves. Only 1,000 attended the opening day. The innovation was not repeated

Things picked up the 3rd round. The event get a nasty surprise when Nancy Gunter wires the event from Texas an hour before her match. The 1968 winner is not coming. Tournament director Jacques Dorfmann was miffed to say the least.Then comes the first big upset, as Rosie Casals blows a 4-0 first set lead and a 3-0 2nd set lead to fall to Laura Rossouw 8-6 8-6. In the same round Kerry Melville best Pam Teeguarden in an epic. Pam had 2 match points at 6-5 40-15. She could convert neither. She served for the match four more times. After 4 plus hours it all ended in a double fault by Teeguarden, who broke down in tears on court. 9-7 4-6 16-14 set a French Open record at 56 games.


In the quarters Billie Jean drop shots fiery Virginia Wade to death, winning 6-1 6-3 with surprising ease.

King knew she had a test in German Helga Masthoff. "Helga seems to play better and better the harder I hit," says King. In 1970 Helga, a stork-like ex-model, beat Billie Jean from a set down and gave the American cramps. This time King used dinks and drop shots rather than constantly going to net. Luckily she closed in out in straights 6-4 6-4. Evonne won the other semi in two sets as well, but she won ugly. She was off from the start, coming out to court forgetting her racquets. Durr served for the set at 5-4 but was easily broken. Despite the 9-7 6-4 score the Gong was never threatened again.

The NYT declared King "was brilliant in defeating Goolagong before 12,000 awed by women's tennis at its finest." In comparison the men's final was boring. Evonne had never lost a set at Roland Garros. King was so delighted she threw her racquet several feet in the air, sat down, and cried with joy. Afterwards she joked about being "an old bag" at 28, but the American Queen of women's lib had at last bagged the last major to elude her. It was sweet indeed.

King and Betty Stove ran over surprise doubles finalists Winnie Shaw and Nell Truman in 35 minutes.

Summary:

With defending champ Billie Jean King and Casals skipping the French, interest centered on a possible final between Margaret Court and Chris Evert. With the women divided into two circuits, this is the first major event where all the women can compete together.

An early round drama match is Virginia Ruzici vs Nathalie Fuchs. Ruzici got cramps and was massaged by fellow Romanian Mariana Simonescu on court. This got her disqualified by the referee. She appealed to the tournament committee, which reversed the decision, allowing the match to go on. Fuchs won out at 10-8 in the 3rd. Another match influenced by cramp was Richey-Rossouw. Laura led the #5 seed 4-2 in the last set before cramps got the better of her. Richey eeked out a 7-5 victory.

Court was shaky in early rounds, despite not dropping a set. Paris was her first event after being embarrasing in a battle of the sexes defeat by Bobby Riggs, the infamous "Mother's Day Massacre". Riggs is looking for another woman to challenge, and rumors are it will be Evert. Margaret had to survive tiny Pat Coleman though. The tiny 5 foot Aussie tested her legendary countrywoman on an outside court. Pat took the first set and had a point for 4 all in the 3rd. It was much trickier than the 5-7 6-0 6-3 score suggests.

Rain delays are so common this year that the women play the quarters, semis, and finals on back to back days. The men and women are reduced to slogging through mud, and play continues unless it pours. One late men's match on center court is finished as the sun sets in "an air of unreality. Fewer than 20 spectators were watching".

Third seed Virginia Wade, "playing perhaps the worst match of her career", crashes out to French mainstay Roubin in round 3.

Nancy Richey, seen as the only real challenger to Court and Evert, is an upset victim of Czech Martina Navratilova. Richey had beaten both top seeds on clay before and gave Evert fits in 1972.

Martina is so little known that the New York Times lists her as "Maria" Navratilova in the first two rounds. Her talent is on display with her all-court game; Evonne Goolagong survives 2 set points in a close 7-6 6-4 encounter.

Court gets by Goolagong 6-3 7-6 and Evert crushes Durr in the semis. Evert needed only 37 minutes to bundle out the Frenchwoman.

Court wins a close final and two legs on a second grand slam. Chris came back from 1-4, two set points and 2-5 in the tiebreak to win the first set. at 5-3 in the 2nd Evert was as close as two points from victory, but Margaret's experience told, with an Evert lob going just long to tie matters at a set all. A downcast Evert admitted later that, "I got tight there. So close, so near, and I tightened."

Margaret proved just a tad stronger down the stretch after a 2 hr. 17 minute duel to deny Evert her first major. "Her [Court's] astonishing competitive spirit, her refusal to accept defeat even when logic most firmly insists on it, were never better demonstrated that in the final against Chris Evert-one of the finest women's matches to grace centre court."

Court has now tied Suzanne Lenglen with the most French Championships at 5 titles. This record won't be broken until Chris Evert wins her 6th and 7th titles in 1995 and 1986.

Draw Notes:

Olga Morozova and Helga Mastoff were co #3 seeds. This was also done in the men's draw, where Borg and Ashe were co #3 seeds.

#5 Pat Pretorius withdrew, as she is retiring from tennis. She is in Morozova's section, and is replaced by a lucky loser.

Pinto-Bravo=the maiden name of Ana Maria Arias. Arias was an Argentine who married fellow tennis player Jaime Pinto Bravo circa 1973 or 1974. She played Fed Cup for Chile in 1974. World Tennis lists her as Argentine.

Summary:

Defending champion Margaret Court is expecting her first child and thus absent.

This was the first year that World Team Tennis had an effect on this slam, as its participants were barred from playing here. This meant no Billie Jean King, who hates red clay anyway; and no Francoise Durr, Nancy Richey, Kerry Reid, or Rosie Casals. Evonne Goolagong is willing to compete here-with a clause in her WTT contract allowing her to come to Paris. Jimmy Connors had similar terms. As Connors and Goolagong had won the Australian in January both were in the hunt for the Grand Slam. Only Evonne can challenge Chris Evert on clay, being the last person to defeat Evert in 1973 at Rome.

French Federation President Philippe Chatrier sees things differently. Determined to nip World Team Tennis in the bud, he bars anyone who is in the league, including Evonne Goolagong and Jimmy Connors. In his words "WTT is an obnoxious disruptive organization. It wants to kill European tennis. " (World Tennis, p 84) The two sue the French Open, but it will not be settled until long after the dust settles on Court Centrale. Chatrier has cut off his nose to spite his face-and the French suffers for years. Evonne and Jimmy refuse to enter Roland Garros for many years-even after World Team Tennis folded in 1978.

That leaves Chris Evert as the prohibitive favorite to win her first major.

#2 seed Virginia Wade fell early to a combination of her nerves and the slow red clay she dreads like the plague.

Evert flies through the draw until she encounters Julie Heldman in the quarters. Jules got smoked 6-0 to start. She led Chris 5-4 and served for the second set. At that point all her ploys deserted her and Chrissie swept to a 6-0 7-5 victory. Chris will face Helga Masthoff, who can pass for a German model. A stork-like wingspan helped Helga overcome young talent Martina Navratilova. "I decided to go to net all the time. She [Martina] did it too me at Rome, so decided to get there first."

Helga Masthoff employs all of her clay court wiles on the young American. The tall German employs attack and defense by turns, hitting drop shots, then often hitting forcing winners with overheads or sneaking in for volleys after finding an opening. The effort wears her out though. She gained a 4-1 lead in set 1, with rallies often going to 50 shots or more. Somehow the set got away from her. Masthoff surged to 4-2 in the second set, but yet again Evert tied and then passed her. Chris holds on for a 7-5 6-4 victory, her only true test of the tournament. "Helga played terrifically. She hits those dink shots" Chris said.

Olga Morozova of the Soviet Union was her final opponent, the first major final for a Russian woman. In a low key semifinal (not even one French journalist was present) Olga swept aside Raquel Giscafre 6-3 6-2.

Olga tried to rally with Chris. 4-0 Evert. Olga changed tactics, coming in on first and second serves. A desperate volley off the wood netted Olga her first game. It would be six games until Olga won another. It ended as a 6-1 6-2 slaughter as Chrissie refused to miss no matter what the Russian tried. Reflecting on her victory Evert declared to the crowd of 10,000, "I needed to win this one. It's the biggest clay court tournament in the world. And it's a tough one to win. The clay is very slow. You need endurance, more than on any other surface."

As a footnote this was the first ever Grand Slam title for Martina Navratilova-winning the mixed with Ivan Molina. She becomes the youngest winner of a French title to date.


Below are two detailed reports from 'The Times' of London on the 1974 French Open, where Chris Evert won her first major singles title at the age of 19]

From The Times, June 13, 1974:

Miss Evert to play Mrs Morozova in Paris Final

By Rex Bellamy

Christine Evert, aged 19, champion of South Africa and Italy, will play Olga Morozova, aged 25, runner-up for the Italian title two years ago, in the women's singles final of the French tennis championships. Mrs Morozova thus follows a precedent set by Alexander Metreveli at Wimbledon last year. She is the first woman from the Soviet Union to reach the singles final of one of the tournaments traditionally regarded as ‘the big four?. She took Miss Evert to three sets in the semi-final round of the recent Italian Championships.

Today Mrs Morozova beat Raquel Giscafré, of Buenos Aires, 6-3, 6-2, in 47 minutes, and Miss Evert won 7-5 6-4 in an hour and 32 minutes against the 1970 runner-up Helga Masthoff, who is 13 years her senior. Mrs Masthoff has played Miss Evert five times without winning a set. This afternoon Mrs Masthoff and Miss Giscafré both played to the limit of their ability in matches that lacked either the drama or uncertainty or the spice of inspired technical virtuosity. In short, they were matches to interest the connoisseur rather than excite the casual spectator.

Miss Evert is already the uncrowned queen of the clay court game. There is something of Jane Austen (without the wit and charm) in the way she aspires to perfection within a carefully limited range. She gasped with horror when she made an unforced error. She was lured into the forecourt only fourteen times, winning merely six of those rallies. Her four volleys yielded but one point.

Those adverse percentages are foreign to her nature. Her natural home is the baseline, from which she drives to a good length on both flanks, with occasional short angles, drops and lobs to vary the pattern and keep her opponents awake. She scrambles well, too. It is all done with a poker-faced concentration that seldom wavers. Her tennis is a kind of hypnotic torture.

There were times when the exchange of looped drives and the absence of birds suggested that the usual low-flying sparrows had chosen a different flight path in order to keep out of harm?s way. Mrs Masthoff eventually became visibly bored and tired. She shouldered arms between shots ? shots, not points ? with a kind of elongated ennui. She crossed her long legs in the stance she always takes up when weary. Tactically, she showed nearly all the initiative and for the most part her game was imaginatively conceived and soundly played. She went to the net whenever discretion permitted it. She tried every avenue, but found them all marked 'Sans interdit' [No entry].

In the first set she led 4-1. In the second she won nine successive points and had four break points for a 4-2 lead (hereabouts, Miss Evert made a few absentminded errors that suggested her concentration needed a breather). But on each occasion Miss Evert firmly pounded the German into a corner from which there was no escape.

From The Times, June 17, 1974:

[Chris Evert wins first major singles title]

By Rex Bellamy

Christine Evert, aged 19, already a champion of South Africa and Italy, won £3,500 and became the youngest women?s singles champion [at Roland Garros] since Christine Truman, as she was then, in 1959. Miss Evert beat Olga Morozova 6-1, 6-2 in 62 minutes. She is the first woman since Ann Jones in 1966 to win the Italian and French Championships in the same year. [...]

Like Evonne Goolagong, who was also 19 when she won the championship three years ago at her fist attempt, Miss Evert did not lose a set. Today she looked a charming figure in a dress of buttercup yellow with matching sweatband and pants. Her game, too, combined boldness with a tidy discretion. She wanted to play the match from the back of the court. But Mrs Morozova sensibly insisted that either one player or the other must spend a lot of time in the forecourt.

When Miss Evert had to go there, she nimbly answered drop with drop (or a deep return down the lines), or carefully and soundly played the volleys and smashes Mrs Morozova challenged her to hit. When the Russian went to the net she was usually bamboozled by lobs; or fierce passing shots that demanded courageously positive thinking from Miss Evert. Mrs Morozova tried everything she could think of in an attempt to hustle Miss Evert about, break up the rhythm of her game, and either induce an error or create the opening for a winner. It was cutely conceived, but it was not executed quite well enough to have the desired effect.

Miss Evert took it all in her stride and played almost flawless tennis until she led 6-1, 4-0, at which point she briefly showed signs of human frailty. That did not last long. Soon Mrs Morozova, her hair tied up in spaniel-like bunches over her ears, was again looking the epitome of dejected frustration. When she was serving at 2-5 and 30-40, match point, the tension was broken by the raucous rasp of a car horn. As if it were a signal, Miss Evert clouted a crosscourt forehand that flew from the frame of Mrs Morozova's lunging racket. The first Russian woman to reach a 'big four' singles final had been beaten.

Draw Notes:


Again , no seeds listed in the Mixed Doubles, (nor indeed in the Men's or Women's Doubles draws) but good teams at the top and bottom of the draw suggest limited seeding was in place again.

Check Bev Buckley in the doubles draw. The ITF site has Sue Mehmedbasich in her place!

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

Summary:

Play was slower than usual due to heavy low pressure balls used for the event. Barker was only 2 points from defeat in the QF vs Marsikova at 4-5 0-30. In typical attacking style she eliminated the deficit with 3 forehand winners. "After a mob scene on court after a disputed call, Miss Barker broke to 6-5 and won, the lone seeded player left."

Sue's forehand held firm in the semis, where she advanced despite serving up 10 double faults. Ruzici kept it close for two sets by mixing in high bounding topspin with deft drop shots. After the intermission Virginia tried trading hard shots with the Brit, with predictable results.

On her opponent in the final Sue said: "I've always beaten Tomanova before. There's no one to look forward to meeting."

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

Summary

Notes: Transexual Renee Richards had entered, but withdrew before the draw after failing a sex-chromosome test. This had also happened at the Italian. Dr. Richards will enter the US Open later this year, as American events don't require the test.

Early favorite and former champ (in 1968) Nancy Richey lost in round three. Nancy still has good days with her hard, flat forehand, but age has taken much of the sting out of her game. That leaves Mima Jausovec as favorite, since she is the only top ten woman entered. All the other top stars are in America for World Team Tennis.

The quarterfinal between Americans janet newberry and Kathy May is so tedious that specatators file out in disgust. "When Miss Newberry finally won, there was an unusual silence as the crowd realized the nightmare had ended". The Mihai-Boshoff duel was also a baseline affair, but Florenta's net play in the third made the difference as Linky tired.

Only 6,000 fans appeared on ladies semifinals day, the one day women are given center court. Even on this day the ladies get second class treatment. The second semi between Jausovec and Newberry is moved to the grandstand when the men's doubles final runs long. Newberry, "lost her concentration to the sounds of rush hour traffic" as buses and cars made more noise than the small crowd. Janet had won in Rome, leaving Mima to exclaim afterwards that, "This was the toughest match for me, this was the final." Newberry routinely missed serves and forehands. According to Janet,"I was getting tired. I hadn't played anyone who got so many balls back".

Jausovec competed in the final using pain-killing cream and spray for her bad right knee. Many felt she would have won in straights if the umpire hadn't let Mihai serve 4 straight balls in a tiebreak! The crowd whistled loudly at a close call with Mima up 3-2 in the TB. With the stadium chanting to replay the point, the umpire let Florenta serve 4 consecutive points from that point. Mihai won the TB 7-5, but Mima stormed through the third to win her only slam and the top prize of 7,000$ US.

Regina Marsikova and Pam Teeguarden, who had never partnered each other, won the doubles. Mary Carillo and John McEnroe are the surprise mixed champions. It is the first of many slam tiltles for John and the only title of any significance for Carillo.

Summary:

This year a "livelier" and less pressurized ball was used at Roland Garros. This made attack in any for easier than usual on the red clay.

An early upset was #4 seed and former champ Nancy Richey, who at age 35 is well past her prime. Nancy fell to young Argentine Viviana Gonzalez, who came to net often. Another former champ who went out early was Lesley Bowrey, who last played Paris in 1971. The mother of 3 went out to another vet, the cagey German Helga Masthoff.

Bowrey was really here due to being a former champion. To celebrate the 5oth anniversary of the Roland Garros site the French Federation invited all former champions. 1963 and 1965 champ Lesley Turner was slower as Mrs Bowrey. The grace and footwork are still there. In doubles the unseeds team od Bowrey and Gail Lovera barely lost an 8-6 third set in the finals to #1 seeds Jausovec/Ruzici. "This match meant that Mrs Lovera had contested the the final six times with four partners--and, after two marriages, under three different names."

The quarterfinals witnessed the closest match that affected the singles, with #2 seed Virginia Ruzici barely taking a 6-6 6-4 8-6 tussle vs Fiorella Bonicelli. Bonicelli, aged 26, was born in Peru but moved to and represents Uruguay. Brigitte Simon beat Miroslava Bendlova. Mrs Bendlova, formerly Kozeluhova, was playing her 1st tournament in 10 months. She won 6 matches in qualifying; making for a rigorous 10 matches in 15 days.

The semis were both straightforward-Jausovec over Marsikova 6-3 6-4 and Ruzici brushing French blonde Brigitte Simon 6-3 6-0. Marsikova briefly threw a scare into the top seed by coming back from 0-4 to tie things, but then dropped the last two games. Brigitte Simon was the 1st French semifinalist since Francoise Durr in 1967. Ruzici simply overpowered Simon with pace or had her running after delicate drop shots.

Ruzici pockets $20,000 for the biggest payday of her career. Lore has it that Richard Williams vowed to turn his daughters Venus and Serena into pro tennis players when he heard of Virginia's prize money.

Mima Jausovec was the favorite coming into the final. She had neither dropped a set nor ever lost to Virginia Ruzici. The Romanian bullied the slighter Jausovec around the court, which she covered with spidery quckness. Indeed, as Rex Bellamy wrote, ""her withering forehand remained the key to her success."

Virginia on her victory: "I'm very happy because this is my first win against Mima. I was playing my forehand as much as possible because I know my backhand can be weak."

Dominguez retired in the final with 'back trouble', thereby stopping Virginia Ruzici from winning a rare Slam triple.
