do you guys know of any really good tennis sites selling VHS tapes of different matches? i have already visited www.tennistapes.com, but they only have matches for sale from 2000 onward. i would really loved to purchase classic battles of the past decade but i just don't know where on the net to find them! your help would be appreciated greatly!;)

oh, and is it true that the TV Tennis Channel coming out later this year will air classic matches?
