And tennis was at the forefront, crowning the first woman gold medalist in Olympic history.

Did you know-- during a Wightman Cup match she coached, one of her players wore some color trim on her otherwise all-white outfit. When the player lost, Wightman was convinced it was the color that threw her off her game.
