Grand Slam Highlight Videos

Someone started another thread about A Long Way Baby, which apparently is a highlight show about the 73 U.S. Open. I've also seen a highlight show from Wimbledon in 1980. Is anyone aware of other similar shows, or know where they can be found and maybe purchased? Thanks.

I believe Wimbledon produces annual tapes of that year's Championships.

So does the U.S. Open, Jem.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Jem: Just this year ESPN Classic broadcasted a whole slew of Wimby highlight reels, 1979-1994 I believe the years were. Off the top of my head, one great match highlight was between Austin and King - wonderful shotmaking by each. Personally, I've enjoyed re-watching these tapes as the production-quality is excellent.

Hi Jem

If you have trouble finding them (many have been deleted from commercial sale), I have all the Wimbledon annual highlights tapes since 1968 when they were first produced. I also have the annual highlights from 1947, 51 & 54 which are very interesting as well although in Black & White of course.

I also have most of the USO annual highlights tapes since 1969 (just missing 70 & 74 and a couple from the early 80s).

I don't think the highlights of the 1970 & 74 USO were ever produced unfortunately - but if anyone does have those I would LOVE to get hold of them.

So if you get stuck in tracking down the years you want you can always send me a message.
