No doubt about it! And besides we need no videos, for instance one single picture of the legendary Renshaw already speaks volumes and immediately surpasses anything of present day tennis. His style, the way he moves on court, his strokes! Ah, those where the days, golden! What did I say? Golden? I mean platinum!

We should force them to look at b&w videos of Tilden and only let them go if they finally admit that tennis in the old days was the real golden tennis.
