Venus Williams has been raising eyebrows with her Australian Open outfit - with some fans wondering if she is going commando. In fact the world number six, who designs her own outfits, is just wearing skin-coloured hotpants to make the splits in her skirt stand out better. Wimbledon attitudes have clearly mellowed since Monica Seles was banned from wearing her bright pink pants in and Lori McNeil had to ditch her turquoise smalls during a rain delay. Maybe she was just showing early signs of being an Arsenal supporter - her boyfriend is Gunners star Samir Nasri. The SW19 chiefs might have been wishing they had agreed to Gussie Moran's request to wear coloured clothing in As people felt the decoration brought more attention to 'Gorgeous Gussie's' derriere, the look was so controversial at the time it even triggered a debate in parliament. Nine short years later and it was Karol Fageros who was raising eyebrows at the All England Club - with her gold lame underpants provoking even more of a reaction than Kylie Minogue's hotpants in Spinning Around.

Gertrude "Gussie" Moran was a fine tennis player who reached No 4 in the United States rankings and played in a Wimbledon doubles final, but she will be forever remembered for a much more trivial reason. Moran's appearance at Wimbledon in wearing a short skirt that revealed a pair of frilly lace knickers shocked the staid world of tennis but delighted photographers and gossip columnists. For the rest of her life the Californian who preferred to spell her name as "Gussy" was usually referred to as "Gorgeous Gussie", which was the moniker that the British press gave her. Moran was arguably the first woman to bring glamour, sex and fashion into tennis. She appeared on magazine covers, had a racehorse and an aircraft named after her, was dated by millionaires and went into cinema and broadcasting. In later years, however, she led a less glamorous life. Moran, who died at 89 after a lengthy spell in hospital with colon cancer, had three failed marriages and spent her last years in poverty, refusing nearly all offers of help from friends. An attractive woman with a fine figure, Moran had initially asked for permission to wear a coloured outfit ahead of her Wimbledon debut in , but the All England Club refused to bend its all-white rules. Teddy Tinling, a flamboyant character who had become a tennis dress designer after retiring as a player, came up with a creation that would cause a far greater furore.
