I find it worth to mention that Plaa won the first set by 6-0! Tilden in those days seldom lost a set that way...

In 1935 he lost two sets by 6-0 in the final of the US Pro against K. Kozeluh.

Plaa's win shows also that he, Kozeluh, Nüsslein, Ramillon, A. Burke and Najuch were more than just journeymen as some posters (or is it only one poster?) try to insinuate...
is there a definition of the term ´journeymen´that is widely accepted?
