Wimbledon and tennis clothes
With the start of the Wimbledon tennis tournaments almost upon us Negative Boredom let's remember Anne White who (twenty-five years ago this year) finished warming up in her match against Pam Shriver and took off her track suit to reveal this:

The next day she was told to wear something more 'appropriate'. I suspect the All England Club officials of the time would have had heart attacks had they seen Serena William's magnificent outfit:

Incidentally, these two outfits come respectively first and second in this 'worst tennis clothing of all time' video, which I think is most unfair. I'd certainly take a lot more interest in tennis if the women all dressed like that. The interesting bit starts at 2:05

Edit, a few more pics of Serena added.
That reminds me this article I wrote about figure skating. Same "more appropriate" ;-)

From what I remember, originally, the "tennis suit" included stockings. Skirts were longer to cover the garters. It's the invention of tights what made wearing short skirts possible.

I'm not sure whether these belong in this thread or not but these pics of Serena in Hawaii are too good not to post. If she ever wants a new career Ms Williams would make the most glorious dominatrix ever. I'd certainly do whatever she told me to...(my imagination's working overtime Blush )
