    I found this at a local estate sale in Coral gables (a high end neighborhood in Miami). The lady holding the sale told me she'd personally had asked everyone who signed it to sign it & thought it was signed by Boris Becker & S. Graff but couldn't remember who else (+ she had 4-5 people asking her questions at the time).
    Can anyone recognize any signatures (and where they are on poster)?
    Much thanks!

    Total guess - Bjorn Bork on the far right in the sky?

    The only one that even looks legible would be Byron Black. There were a lot of players so it would be extremely hard to tell who they are by those scribbled signatures. Although I loved tennis I am looking for names that stood out. Good luck. Maybe you could try signed autographs of the players.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    If you go to this page and click on the tab labeled "Drawsheet" you'll get a chart showing the draws that includes all of the names. Be aware there were 128 men and 64 women in the tournament, if I'm reading that correctly. So, a big job! https://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/tournaments/men's-tournament/info.aspx?tournamentid=1010001273

    I'm a fan of the Grand Slam championships and also watch some others now that Tennis Channel is available. But I agree the signatures will be hard to decipher.

    Thanks - think I'll just sell it as multi autographed Lipton poster - and that's it!
