‘Tennis Style: The Chic Return of Wimbledon White’

Wimbledon’s mandate that players wear all-white tennis court attire is okay by me, it’s less distracting. The Wall Street Journal takes a look at the British tournament’s strict dress code.

  • Adore this pic. The Tretons, ball socks, the dress, ponytail, earrings, hair ribbon and wood racket. CLASSIC!

  • In 1971 I kept a Chris Evert poster on my wall. She is appropriate in every way – tennis whites, well behaved, no whining, and always modest (all rare traits today). She never made excuses for her losses or expected special treatment from anyone. Thanks, Chrissie!

  • I love everything about this photo, and right now…it brings back so many memories. I want the ball socks, I remember my mom putting them on everyday, with Tretorns!!!!

  • Love that photo too! Wimbledon and the U.S. Open are my favorite weeks of the year! Chrissy & Martina were my and my sisters’ role models growing up! Love them both!
