I have it on DVD, Check online for ordering.

Great DVD, narrated in 1997 by John Forsythe, the actor.
The series is taken apparently from appearances by these greats at the LA Tennis Club.
Both Gonzales and Hoad had recently died, making this available (due to copyright?).
Laver states in this interview that when he first turned pro in 1963, Hoad defeated him in 14 straight matches, and this at a time when Hoad was no longer interested in tennis.
