Searching for Big Bill Tilden

In the 1920s, Bill Tilden's fame was on par with that of Babe Ruth and Bobby Jones. He won seven U.S. Nationals (now the U.S. Open), but today he is mostly forgotten. I went in search of his small Philadelphia grave, and wrote an essay about him that appeared in the 2008 U.S. Open issue of Tennis magazine. (Click on the pages to enlarge.)
