Oh yeah, there in the clip at 00.29 you can see it's actually the same. They had obviously some extra stands there.
There are also some clips from the 80's(Lendl/McEnroe 84) when it was the Tournament of Champions and it looks pretty much the same.
It was a great tournament in the 80's(I remember Lendl once trashing Connors 0 and 0). It was always played in May. New Yorkers had some great tennis during the year. Forest Hills in May, US Open in September and The Masters in December/January.
Forest Hills had its last ATP event in 1989. I remember it was played as a exho just before the US Open in August in 1990 on a hard court. But it was the last time. There have been challengers later. But surely the final hasn't been played on the old center court.
Yeah, great exo in 1990. and Lendl beat Krickstein in the final (Jimbo in 1/4)
