Definitely.Tilden had 5 or 6 great players to compete against, while the Renshaw, Doherty and Wilding&Brookes had just 1 or 2 potential rivals.But they pionereed the game and should be highly regarded, just by that.

Washington was voted by no more than a few hundred thousand or, at maximum, a very few milllion electors, but that doesn´t make him a worse President than, say, George W Bush
