So are you of the same opinion as I am that Tilden would easily be able to play today's game and perhaps improve on it with his theories on tennis? Maybe you should start a thread and ask that question.
I think Tilden was a brilliant player and unfortunately very forgotten today. Strange because he was easily considered the GOAT as late as the late 1960's over Laver, Gonzalez, Rosewall, Budge, Kramer, Cochet etc.
