  • Description

    Item title reads: " 'Big Bill' comes back! W.T. Tilden defeats Rene Lacoste 6.4-7.5 in thrilling match."

    Paris, France

    C/U of both players, smiling, posing for the camera, and carrying tennis rackets. They shake hands and the player in a jumper throws his racket down in a light hearted gesture of defeat, even before they start. L/S of play on the court in sunny weather. There is an interview with both players at the end. They wear long trousers.

    Note: Quirky gesture by one player in chucking his racket down.

    Amendment Dec 2010: Tilden is in fact throwing his racket down to determine who would serve first.
