In 1932-1933, Vines was still amateur, and the only really prominent big-time player to turn professional had been Bill Tilden, who had a fantastic first year as a pro in 1931. But Plaa, and especially Nusslein, were starting to become a nuisance for an aging Tilden before long, and then Vines, Perry and Budge came over as the 1930s went on.
