Wow, thank you! Can you imagine anyone playing in those heavy looking outfits?
It sure looks painful Mark!
Yet a part of me wants to put on those heavily starched clothes with buttons properly done up and give the ball a whack around 1900 or so.
The other painful thing might be the blisters from the racquets. Take a look at them and you'll notice there are no leather grips. It was all wood! The grips were a lot bigger then too. I have a stick from about 1910 and the grip is just huge.
