Such a great thread. I guess this is almost the official "retro" thread?
I actually believe that a great player would be a great player during any era. Of course the number of GS-titles would be different etc.
Can't let go of Tilden. Don't forget about the ultimate macho man, when talking about womanizers.
Would have loved to see him during the 70's. Just imagine the trashtalk Connors and Nastase would have lashed at him during night matches. "You sick perv" etc.
Found some funny and amazing footage on YouTube. "Bill Tilden's advanced tennis" is funny stuff. And you just feel scared for the lad in the film. But then again "Professional tennis at Odsal Stadium" features some incredible footage. That's pure history! Johnny, check it out, if you haven't seen it yet.
