One difference is that Bill Tilden didn't try to use _tennis_ to find adolescent partners -- he merely gave them expensive gifts. He had many young tennis students, but all of them claimed he kept the relationship professional and never touched them.

This scandal is certainly making Hewitt more famous; so maybe to distinguish between fame and notoriety the Tennis Hall of Fame should open a separate wing called the "Tennis Hall of Infamy."
