Moran always said she wanted red carpet in her house, loving the glamour it invoked.
Before she returned from the hospital for the last time, Neworth said, friends pitched in and had one installed. She died a week later.
Moran said she was happy that modern-day players like Kournikova, Maria Sharapova and the Williams sisters were flashy and unashamed in their court fashion.
“What’s wrong with having a good time with your clothes and your body?” she said in 2002. “I was not very comfortable doing so. Maybe it would be different now.”
Moran will be cremated, and friends plan to spread her ashes in the ocean, in view of her family home.
