Left 1982 Right

Australian Open 1982 saw a Groundhog Day of sorts. Defending his title against another depleted field defending champion Johan Kriek, by then a naturalised American, cruised to the semifinal where he hit a roadblock in the form of future tournament director Paul McNamee. Leading by two sets to love, Kriek allowed McNamee back into the match and only scraped through to his second Slam final when the Melbourne local tightened up on match point in the fifth set. Seeded for the first time, Steve Denton also progressed to what was the first repeated men’s final line-up since Roy Emerson and Arthur Ashe in 1967. With Denton’s unusual service action off form, he struggled to make an impression on the final, falling 6-3 6-3 6-2. While the line-up for the 1982 women’s final was identical to that of 1981, the first repeated Australian Open women’s final line up in the Open era, the outcome was very different. Breaking a three-match losing streak against Navratilova, Chris Evert reversed the 1981 result, claiming the trophy and her first Australian Open title 6-3 2-6 6-3. There was some consolation for Navratilova in the women’s doubles final, she and Pam Shriver teaming up to win the first of four-consecutive doubles titles Down Under.
