THESE are the incredible archived photos of some of the first women to play at Wimbledon Championships more than a 100 years ago.
Dorothea Douglass Lambert Chambers won seven Wimbledon Women’s Singles titles between 1903 and 1914.
The first Wimbledon Championships were held in 1877, but women didn’t compete until 1884 – where the first winner of the Women’s Singles was Maud Watson.
As the game evolved so did the fashion as women in the 1900s wore dresses with high collars and sleeves, and skirts didn’t become popularised until the 1930s.
Wearing white was and still is largely the colour of choice during the Wimbledon Championships, but some tennis stars like Serena Williams are known for ther edgy ensemble.
