Wimbledon Officials Cite 'Strict' Rules, Ask Roger Federer To Change Orange-Soled Shoes
Published June 27, 2013
WHITE OUT: Meanwhile, ESPN’s Pam Shriver noted Serena Williams wore “the same color tennis pants, all orange,” as Federer’s shoes during her first-round match Tuesday. Shriver: “Why is she allowed to wear her tennis pants that are all orange if Roger can’t have the soles of his shoes all orange?” ("Wimbledon," ESPN2, 6/26). A Wimbledon spokesperson said, "The rules state that players can wear any color underwear they like provided it is no longer than their shorts or skirt. Anything else must be white" (REUTERS, 6/26). The BBC reported in a bid to prevent such incidents, tournament regulations state that manufacturers "must submit all clothing designs for inspection some time before the start." However, there is "less intense scrutiny of shoes before play begins" (BBC, 6/26).
