I asked to the author of this video if those images really belong to that year, and he confirmed it to me.

I recommend you guys watch it! Also I would like that this video gets to have millions of visits and a lot of comments, the same in this thread. Please watch and comment.
Great video-memories.
Remember him at Oz Open, beating marksie in the final at Kooyong.
Nobody worked harder on the practice courts that year...watched him from start to finish, day after day.
Even when he played matches he put in a solid workout.
he hit thousands of serve with Tiriac, he was always looking for an edge..
his legacy is all the players like Franco Davin, Nalby , Coria, Chela, Monaco,
Delpo, Schwank etc.
Thanks
