    Thanks for the link. Over here (I don't know if in all the Spanish speaking world) it's called "la gran Willie".

    I make a self-correction. In an official match the shot was executed by Vilas for the first time in 1974 in the Toronto tournament on clay, against the Spanish Manuel Orantes. It is recalled the reverence that made Orantes, kneeling next to the network.

    Vilas and many people say he invented it, I'm not sure if this is true, but I guess very probably he made it for the first time in a official match executing the shot in a great way, and being it a winner shot. I read it was a great shot.

    The name of Vilas appears in this trophy, Noah too. Why is this?:

    ^I love that boat propeller trophy. Is the tournament sponsered by a marine parts manufacturer/retailer? Nice to see that Andy M isn't the only player on tour with an ugly, patchy beard. :lol:

    Sorry but that's a retarded little trophy. :mad: Was that stolen from the second-place finisher at a boat parade?

    That's a great picture Sid_Vicious! I had a chance to visit London about a month ago and had such a good time walking by that exact spot, along the River Thames, seeing the Houses of Parliament and more. Yet, the highlight was going on a tour of the AELTC. It was a dream. Now, I need to be there once to actually watch the tournament live.

    The media exaggerated the extent of Andre and Pete's friendship just like Fedal's.

    Very nice cluckcluck. I really like that soft blue lighting in the picture with Mahut's backhand. Well done. You must have had a blast watching the tournament and taking "cool pictures of pros"!

    paulorenzo, that Connors warm up is sweet. Here's another picture of Connors and Borg, prior to that Wimbledon final. The red Fila jacket of Borg's is iconic.
