    Back in 1987, I started recording any & every Tennis match televised. Now you must recall DVD wasn't available then so I began to amount a serious collection of VHS tapes. Up until I relocated to New England, all of these tapes were in order of year and tournament. I use to boast that if you named the match, I probably had it on Tape, which wasn't far fetched. However when I moved to NE, somehow they got completely out of order. So although I still have them, if you wanted a particular match, it would take me the better part of two weeks
    to locate it. And does anybody even have a VHS machine anymore?
    The only acceptable loss is when your opponent was better than you on that given day.
    It is never acceptable to lose when your opponent was not.

    No, I don't have a list compiled however as I said, I was pretty committed in taping anything on tv from the late 80's both ATP & WTA. So what would be a better solution, you tell me what Player you like and I'll see what I have by that Player. Back then, HBO carried Wimbledon from start to finish and espn I believe carried even the 1st Rd all the way through. Point is, I have hundreds of VHS tapes and making a list is out of the question, way too many.

    So tell me who you like or what matchups and I'll see what I have. I'll tell you this however, I know I have pretty much anything with Steffi Graf, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Ivan Lendl, Boris Becker, Stefan Edberg, Monica Seles, John McEnroe, Jim Courier, M. Chang and moving into the next generation, I began taping the new group coming up.

    Please understand, I know for a fact that I have many matches with Micheal Chang, who in 1996 was within one match of being #1 in the World, had he beaten Pete Sampras in the US Open Finals. And I know I have many Agassi / Sampras matchups as well as Agassi / Chang matches.

    The problem is my collection is on VHS Tapes, therefore I only have a few options, either spend the time transferring the contents of the VHS onto DVD or sending the entire VHS. If I send the VHS tape off to you, I no longer have it and if I make a DVD copy, that's a considerable amount of time spent and I'd have to charge for that.

    Let me first see what I have then I'll give it some serious thought. Maybe I'll speak with John about it and come up with a plan. Actually you gave me an idea that I will talk to John about. Keep watching this Thread for an update


    Thank You,
    Coach

    Coach (or anyone else), do you have Verdasco/Nadal or Gonzalez/Gasquet from last year's Aussie open or Nadal/Federer at Wimbledon 08? Also Sampras/Agassi at the US open 2001
