Default This is not my true return

I won't really return to this site in the coming days because I have no time but I couldn't prevent myself from watching a little this TW Website.
However it is likely that in some weeks-months I will come back

In the meantime I write this short post :

if my memory is right the first "two-handed backhand" player who won a Slam tourney
was
Vivian Erzerum Bede McGrath who took the 1937 Australian amateur crown

(this tournament was a very depleted event because all the pros (Vines, Nüsslein, Perry, Tilden, ...) were forbidden to enter and many top amateurs didn't came (Budge, Cramm, Austin, Henkel, Riggs, ...)
