Ten things about 'Gorgeous' Gussie Moran - who died in January at the age of 89 - and how her lace scandalised Britain.
She was, according to Jack Kramer, "The Anna Kournikova of her time - Gussie was a beautiful woman with a beautiful body. If Gussie had played in the era of television, no telling what would have happened. Because, besides everything else, Gussie could play." Wearing a controversial pair of knickers was not all she achieved during her playing career - she was also a singles semi-finalist at the US Open and a doubles finalist at Wimbledon.
Moran's lace-trimmed knickers had the photographers lying on the grass by the side of the court to get the angle they wanted.
The All England Club were concerned about the effect that Moran's pants were having on the Royal Family.
Moran also performed a striptease behind an opaque screen in the press room.
"I was embarrassed, because they were putting so much adulation on the character, 'Gorgeous Gussie'. You know, I was really nothing to write home about. I was a plain girl. But Life magazine ran a picture calling me 'Gorgeous Gussie' and the British picked it up and did a real job with it. Then people would see me and I'd hear them say, 'I've seen better-looking waitresses at the hot-dog stand'. I just went to pieces. Emotionally, I couldn't handle it."
Moran once said she was pleased that Anna Kournikova, Maria Sharapova and others wanted to be glamorous on court: "What's wrong with having a good time with your clothes and your body?" 7.
Moran, according to the Associated Press, "Always said she wanted red carpet in her house, loving the glamour it invoked".
