Fair use rationale for Image:Jack Kramer Time Cover.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Jack Kramer Time Cover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

changing to "Jack Kramer (tennis)" ...[edit]

There is third "Jack Kramer" that would be good to include in Wikipedia. The second one is listed as "Jack Kramer (baseball)". Let's change THIS ONE to "Jack Kramer (tennis)" and add the third one as "Jack Kramer (gardening)".

I am not familiar with editing enough to make such a change; I hope some senior editor will help out here. Thanks. -- LC Richter —Preceding unsigned comment added by LCRichter (talkcontribs) 15:43, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

Lobs[edit]

On page 296: "Riggs, of course. But Segura, Bitsy Grant and Rosewall were almost as effective. Connors is coming on strong." Hayford Peirce (talk) 20:06, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

That I do remember reading but again that means he thought Riggs was the best so that should be the only name listed.
Absolutely. I saw Little Pancho years ago, and he had a terrific one, but if Jyke says Bobby had a better one, you gotta go with him. So I wouldn't let this revision stand unless he comes up with a better source. Hayford Peirce (talk) 03:10, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

"father" of the professional tour?[edit]

Nonsense. The professional tour had existed for 20 years before Kramer even JOINED it as a player. See the articles about Vinnie Richards, Tilden, Vines, Budge, Perry, and Riggs. Geez, where does this nonsense come from? Also "lost by five votes" -- WHOSE votes, when, and where? The more WP gets edited, the worse it becomes. Hayford Peirce (talk) 03:48, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
