So today's tidbit of history goes all the way back to 1987. Apparently, tennis star Chris Everett made more than sport's history when she played in the U.S. Open that year. One game was stopped, momentarily, as she was given time to find an in-line diamond bracelet that had broken during the match. Such a simple action lead to the re-naming of the inline diamond bracelet as "tennis" bracelet.
