The Origin of the Tennis Bracelet

The famed, "tennis bracelet" was coined its name when Chris Evert was playing a match in 1987 and her diamond bracelet gifted to her by Greg Norman flew off her wrist in the middle of a rally. She stopped the game to try and find it and from that moment the the humble line diamond bracelet became known as a tennis bracelet.
