Have there been any players that have ever worn a glove to play the game? Also is there gloves worn for colder temperatures?

Cliff wore one before overwrap became commercially available. He doesn't use one now.

Well, I don't know any players wearing gloves nowdays, but I've seen pictures made at my home tennis center in Estonia in 30-s, where people were playing tennis at winter with gloves and furry hats. =P

Could that be Felix Mantilla? He suffered from skin cancer for a couple of years. Fortunately he has recovered from that and is currently working as a coach.

I have never seen a pro or high level player use a glove but I have seen a few older people at the local courts wearing one of those Gamma gloves for tennis.

One of the indoor facilities I play at in the winter can be pretty cold (like 40 F) I wear football receivers gloves when it get that cold and they actually work pretty well.

I used a tennis glove on Saturday because it was so hot that I could not hold on to my racket.
