Chris Evert, 1976 The tennis court has always been a place for tennis stars to serve up style. From ankle-length skirts of the 1920s to Venus Williams' sexy spandex, women of tennis love to partner fashion and sport. Some looks have been hits. Some misses. In honor of Wimbledon, see what's caused a buzz from center court ... It's no longer all about the tennis whites. Whispers were heard around the world when Chris Evert's frilly pink panties peeked out from under her tennis skirt in 1976.
