    Bill Tilden would wear a polo coat over his tennis whites(long flannel trousers and sweater)as he entered the tennis stadium not unlike a robed boxer entering the ring.

    Tilden was also known to go days, some said weeks, without bathing.

    That's a good point: the description on the archive identifies him clearly as "William Tilden, (1893-1953), American tennisman", but the fellow in the background of the photo, staring upwards at the sky, looks more like Tilden.

    "Big" Bill Tilden having what appears to be, a smoke.

    Here's more tennis players, this time French ones. The one wearing the polo coat is Jean Borotra. Every member of AAAC should be able to identify the player third from the left in the first photo.

    Hey DD, Where was this photo taken? Aside from the deck of the Montroyal.
