Bill Tilden's Lonesome Grave
I have an essay about the 1920s tennis star Bill Tilden and my search for his Philadelphia grave in the September/U.S. Open preview issue of Tennis magazine. The piece is not yet online, but you can find it on page 110 of the magazine now on newstands and being delivered to subscribers. You can find a short piece I wrote about Tilden's serve on a web site devoted to Philadelphia history put together by Moira Moody, a junior fellow at the University of Pennsylvania's Kelly Writers House.
