BIG seller in Atlanta. I'm sure the local rep had much to do with the success in a given territory. Can't say there was a lot of consumer pull for that line; but a well placed teaching pro(me...for one year) could make a big difference at a club. The Wimbledon clothing did quite well for us during that period of green and purple clothes, grips, strings, etc.

Of course, the rackets came with the rather slick gray/ghost white leather grip, brittle grommets and chipping paint...all too common among white rackets of the late '80s-early '90s.
