Gary, I will answer your post (with some wrong claims therein) later (I must leave now). But it's an absurdity to claim that I believe that Bud Collins needs some support from me. How can you get to such an idiotic idea? I just defended him against the unfair accusations against him by some posters ("he echoed" etc). I just reported what Bud said and that he was misinterpreted by some English speaking posters who were not capable of understanding Bud's clear and simple statement on Tennis Channel. It's a shame. Get real!!
