Cool

Rosewall already mentioned, and deservedly so. Here's a couple of others from the "way back machine":

Lew Hoad...even more "butter" than Rosie

Ilie Nastase...Grandpa Fed, but a head case

Vitas Gerulaitis...Hopman-infused game was a throwback to Hoad/Rosie

Johan Kriek...was courtside for his QF night match @Armstrong vs Vitas...never saw two guys able to cover so much court in one match...absolute classic!
