The undersigned players, trainers, coaches, teachers, journalists, and tennis fans strongly recommend that in the new stadium that will host the US Open, one of the main courts be dedicated to America's most dominant and successful tennis champion of all-time WILLIAM TATEM TILDEN, better known as BILL TILDEN.

Reason for this request is that Big Bill, as well as being an extraordinary player, was also a great teacher and a farsighted coach that left an important legacy of tennis knowledge.

Tilden wrote many books about tennis teaching and methodology, strategy, tactics, psychology, technique, statistics. Amazingly, some of these books are still very topical.

We strongly believe that a figure of this stature deserves such a recognition.
