Summary

The defending champions were the American team of Mary Joe and Gigi Fernandez. Originally it did not look like they could play as Mary Joe did not make the American team, but as defending champion, the International Tennis Federation awarded her a wildcard entry. Their victory was quite easy, as they won four matches, all in straight sets.
