  1. The most elegant player to grace a court. I remember her shocking pink knickers one Wimbledon….but worn under a lovely tennis dress. She was about eighteen. She had a style of tennis that is sadly missing now.

  2. I remember when I started to watch tennis she was graceful and a beautiful person her knickers were legionary but the grace shone thru rest in peace Maria you was a legion 🙏😢

  3. Along with Pele she ranks as one of the two greatest Brazilian sportsman/women. I was privileged to watch her play, if only on TV, and she brought grace, skill, joy and humility to the sport she loved.

  4. Sad to hear that Maria Bueno had died I remember watching her play and how she shocked Wimbledon by warding frilly knickers she bought fashion to the sport RIP x

  5. I remember watching Maria play when I was growing up, never thought there would be a better player but with the evolution of time, improved racquets, and super fitness has changed the game so much together with much improved courts.

  6. I had the great privilege of seeing her play many times.
    I also met her on more than one occasion, she was always very gracious and friendly, although she struck me as being rather shy.
    She was such a graceful player to watch and her demeanor was exemplary. A Sad loss to the tennis world.

  7. Rest in Peace Maria. Loved watching you play. You were so elegant, almost like a ballet dancer, and a true ambassador for this wonderful game. I am 67 now but I still watch ALL the majors and I love it. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼👍👍⭐️⭐️
