Tutus for Tennis

Designer Teddy Tinling had reason to know what makes a good tennis dress. For 22 years, until the flare-up over Miss Moran's pants caused him to resign, he was Master of Ceremonies of the center court at Wimbledon. He dressed almost every important woman player—and about half of the men, including Seixas and Trabert. Mass-produced copies of his custom-designed Wimbledon costumes were also sold to more than 10,000 less well-known but equally ardent players in England and in America.
