MARTINA HINGIS has worn the dress. Now she’s here to buy the T-shirt!
The ladies legend famously claimed Lottie Dod’s mantle as youngest ever Wimbledon champion when she claimed the doubles crown with Helena Sukova in 1996.
And she revealed yesterday she had worn the actual dress little Lottie wore in 1887.
“I’m afraid my knowledge of Liverpool comes from looking through the programme,” she said.
“I knew Lottie was British, obviously, but I never knew she was from Liverpool until people told me when I broke her record.
“But I do have this photograph where I wore her dress which was displayed in the Wimbledon museum.
“Yes, it was a little tight, but I did get into it!”
