    I was watching the 1975 Wimbledon final Ashe v. Connors and I noticed how skinny their wristbands were. Given how wide the current wristbands used by players are now, I wonder whether players in the past just sweated less? As a heavy "sweater" myself, I sure would have appreciated wide wristbands back in the day.

    Perhaps they hadn't thought of wide sweatbands yet. :roll:
