The famed Wimbledon is on and some of the greatest names in the world of Lawn Tennis are battling it out on the English grass. One of the most prestigious of the four Grand Slam events, the Wimbledon is known for specific details such as all-white dress of the players and the English atmosphere. In 1971, however, the situation was quite different from now. It was a time when the dress code was not in place and the world the ravishing 70s had set in. The English were…umm…more English in their conduct as is evident from these classic photos from Wimbledon 1971.
