That tour was potentially one of the greatest. Budge won the firest five matches, but Vines was known to start slowly on the pro tours. With the score 12 to 8 in Budge's favour, Vines got hot, and reeled off five straight wins to lead 13 to 12. Budge noted in his book that a disgruntled fan asked him why he was letting Vines win, and Budge said that his body was aching and sore from the fierce contests, and how could anyone ask such a question. Vines injured his shoulder in the next match, and was reported as serving side-arm therafter. After this tour, Budge toured against Perry and Tilden whil Vines recovered. When the US Pro was held later, Vines was ready to play, but Budge withdrew from the competition, claiming that he was tired from the tours. It could have been a great final.
