Great video Vegito. Vilas was a great player. I had the chance to watch him play live on a few occasions here in Houston during the 1980's. He was a very unique player with some great strokes and great fitness. One of my best friends is a huge Vilas fan. At one of the tournaments in the early 80's, my friend spoke to Vilas at River Oaks after watching a practice on red clay. Vilas proceeded to go to his bag and give my friend his Ellesse shirt. That was very nice of him.
