Here is something intersting about tennis whites
http://www.4specialtytennis.com/images/lottie.jpg
Women first began to play tennis in the 1860s. At that time, a heavy material, like flannel or serge, was deemed suitable to wear on the courts. Their tennis apparel included a bustle and sometimes a fur. But that was all changed. In 1884, when Maud Watson won the first Wimbledon Ladies' Championship, white tennis apparel had become the most popular. Why? It was simple - sweat. When the trussed-up ladies of the 1890s played in earnest, they wore white because colors revealed sweat stains. This was the start of the tennis whites, which prevailed as acceptable tennis apparel for many decades.
\
May Sutton, in 1905 won at Wimbledon wearing one of her father's shirts. She claimed it provided extra freedom of movement. Imagine the stir she caused by revealing her wrists after rolling back the cuffs. She had complained that the sleeves on her dress were “too long and too hot.”

Let's hope she wore a skirt along with the shirt. ;)

Thanks for the information it's really amazing what women are forced to do. But at least in the west it has changed for the better.

i don't like the clothes in Borg's and Lendi's era, the tops too tight, and the shorts too short, exposing much of the legs, not that nice for me :wavey:

I wish I can be a ballgirl so I can wear RL, too. I wish I'm back in London now. Sigh, I wish for a lot of things....
