    Do you recently or within the last 50 years...the answer is probably no to either. It's a shame the old pro matches aren't around to watch in their entireity. Hopefully one day a billionaire tennis fan will buy these old tapes up and put them out there.

    Bud Collins might have seen the match even live. I don't know if there is footage of the match.

    I doubt that there are full matches from these eras. These clips and newsreels were shot on film which was, still is, hard and expensive to shoot on and archive. Video and tape archival probably did a lot for tennis. One can hope that billionaire will come one day to make all of this available.
