Background: The traditional curtain-raiser for the annual Wimbledon tennis tournament -- Teddy Tingling's parade of tennis fashions - was held in London on Friday (23 June).
The tournament begins on Monday (26 June).
Among those displaying their on-court fashions was the reigning singles champion, Yvonne Goolagong. On her dress there's a tracing of tall trees by still water -- the meaning of her aborigine name.
The British women entrants - including Virginia Wade - have their dresses trimmed, appropriately, in red, white, and blue.
Rosemary Casals of the United States seems intent on giving the message that she's "come a long way, baby."
