The Australian Open shirt from the early 1970s, which will be worn during the match between Serena Williams and Venus Williams, has now been replaced with a more recent design.
The shirt was first used by the Australian Open in 1972, and was worn by the reigning champion and two-time Wimbledon champion.
The new design will be displayed during the second match of the tournament, which takes place on Friday.
A representative for Australian Open said it was pleased with the design and the change.
“The Australian Open was born from a collective desire to promote equality and the empowerment of women, and has long championed the role of sport in promoting the equality of all Australians,” the representative said.
“We are delighted to be celebrating this iconic shirt from Australian Open history.”
The shirt, which has been used for decades, was designed by a pair of men in a suit and tie and worn during a tennis match between tennis stars Venus and Serena, who were born in Australia and have won four of the last five Australian Open titles.
