Wimbledon is known to be the oldest and most “prestigious” tournament in the world. The very first match took place at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London in 1877.

Although many celebrities wear their best clothes for the game, not everyone takes the opportunity to show off their clothes. On July 7, 1996, at the start of the men’s final, a 23-year-old woman named Melissa Johnson wearing only an apron started running across the court. She was working as a caterer during Wimbledon. The players on the court at the time – Richard Krajicek and MaliVai Washington – were taking a shot at the net before their match started when they saw the woman lift her apron.
