Re(3): 1968 Strike

Being 73 years of age, I remember the 1968 and 1988 strikes. I attended the Miami fronton 99% of the time I saw JA. A small memory I have about one of the strikes is that the programs at Miami had two pages showing small pictures of the players with a phrase or two beneath each player's picture. Before the strike would be such comments as, "Singles champ last 3 years." During the strike, using new players, the programs had two pages picturing them, but with such comments as "Strong right side", or "Good rebote." After all, what comments could be written? Now that I think about those times, I did hear (but did not personally see) that one locked out or striking player entered the fronton un-noticed (apparently by buying a ticket), and during a game ran to and climbed the audience's side of the screen, staying there halting play as long as possible before being ejected from the fronton.
