During the first round of Wimbledon in 1985, unranked Anne White began play against the number five seed Pam Shriver. However, their play was not the main topic of discussion among spectators and the media in attendance. White's white one-piece bodysuit was widely reported on, and tournament referee Alan Mills told her to wear "more appropriate clothes" the next day after play was suspended for bad lighting. She did so and lost in the third set the following day.
