Subject: Big Bill movie
About time! - There should have been many films about Big Bill, so this movie is both timely and well received. My compliments to the director. I hope there is substantial footage of Big Bill playing tennis. It would be a shame if the film simply concentrated on the negative aspects of Tilden's life. Remember, he was the greatest tennis player ever. If Tilden were resurrected and given the equipment and training of a modern athlete, he'd probably destroy Roger Federer (or any other player) on any tennis court surface. We should be able to see as much of his playing as is reasonably possible - to understand the differences between old and new court craft. I can't wait for the film to be released.
