Pardon me, your red underwear is showing.: Tatiana Golovin had the Wimbledon referee reaching for his rule book when she sought to appear on court wearing red underwear.

jojo, you are my hero. My word, she is certainly an athletic young woman. Other than the color, I don't see what all the stir-up is about. Wimbletun, methinks it tis much ado about nothing.

I love red; I don't even care what color it is.

During the French Open I couldn't figure out what the heck happened to the second tennis ball that the players were given before a serve. Mystery solved.

I find it funny that they have no problem with her undies showing!!! But it's a problem if they go below the hemline because of their color!!! Gotta love the Brits!!

I root against every player who takes two balls and throws one back every serve. Bastards. At least the women have an excuse in that some outfits lack pockets, but the guys are just dicks.

Aren't those just bloomers? And forget about the color, she should get a doctor to look at that. I think it's a goiter.

She should lower her hemline, but other than that, the photos are mundane.

You'd think they'd be concerned about her blouse's neckline -- gosh, that's a halter with spaghetti straps fercryinoutloud -- but no, they focus on what's essentially brightly colored sport shorts, the stuff you'd see on volleyball players and track and field athletes. Seriously, tho, I understand this is more of a branding thing for Wimbledon, an attempt to maintain the aesthetic of the crisp country club whites against the raging multi-colored jungle spandex the rest of the tournaments allow. Rather than run the tight line of managing these absurdly detailed guidelines, I'd love to see the Wimbledon fashion police mandate a return to collared button-up shirts and trousers for the men and hoop skirts and long sleeve full-collar blouses for the ladies. Let's see some full-length diving volleys and between the leg smashes with those outfits on!
