TILDEN IS PRAISED
BY BRITISH CRITIC
Most Brilliant and Accomplished
It Is Cut Stroke That Will Really
Make Mess of Other Fellow's Shot
If His Game Is Mainly of
Discussing tho American lawn ten
nis players now In ICngland, n writer
In tho Tatler says:
"Then there Is W. T. Tllden. I be.
llevo he Is tho most brilliant and tho
most accomplished of them all, He Is
William T. Tiiaen n.
u young man In tho 20's, and last sea
son bent Gerald Patterson. If you do
not see Mr. Tllden In court you will
miss something really worth while.
Ho can hit a hall harder than tho
world's champion; ho can stroke It so
softly, so caressingly that nothing hut
the simiiluess and genuineness of his
game will persuade It to pass the
net. Having got that far, tho hall
Just lies down; It refuses to do what
a proper ball should. Fortunately,
oven Mr. Tllden only plays this shot
on occasion; otherwise I am sure folk
would decline to oppos-o him. This, nf
course, Is tho only difference between
tournament championships and tea
party tennis. At tho ono tho perfect
drop shot Is a fellow's ambition; at
the other affair It is a horrid lluko.
"Mr. Tllden has advanced the
science of tho game a step farther. He
has gone ahead' of all tho textbooks.
Ho tells us and demonstrates to us nt
Queens and Wimbledon, that It Is the
cut stroke that will, because of tho
backward spin nf tho ball, really mako
a mess of tho other fellow's shot If his
game Is mainly of thu orthodox
straight or top-spin drive. There aro
only two things that can ho done now.
Kltlier wo must chnnge our views
and that we all know an l'nglWhmau
never does or wu must combine and
deport lilm. This Is tho homo of Inwn
tennis, Mr, Tllden, and we don't Ilko
bothers or any new-fangled Ideas,"
