It's about time.
For too many years, tennis in Canada was viewed as a gentleman's game, an amateur pastime for wealthy people in private clubs, not as a high-level professional sport.
I think that Bob Bedard was never properly developed, never had top-level training, and learned by tough experience against more "full-time" players, such as Hoad and Rosewall.
He was a muscular, hard-hitting player, but had trouble with players such as Herb Flam, who had more developed skills.
