Re: Maud Watson(1864-1946) - The first Wimbledon women's singles champion

Maude at Bath in 1885.

Women in the early days often wore colorful clothing. Maude was most often in white, with her trademark sailor's hat.

Maude also stood out in her day for having an overhead serve and her ability to volley.

Note the proximity of the crowd and the string line.
