Wimbledon’s fashion police made Victoria Azarenka change shirts on practice court (PHOTOS)

Busted Racquet

Wimbledon's "predominantly white" clothing rule applies to the practice court too, as semifinalist Victoria Azarenka found out before her match against Serena Williams. The world No. 2 was wearing a yellow T-shirt while warming up for the semifinal battle. That's a no-no at the All England Club.

An official at the All England Club quickly reminded Azarenka of the rule and provided her a white shirt to wear over the offending yellow one. I wonder if they pulled that off a merchandise shelf or whether it's a loaner they give out to underdressed patrons, like when you go to The Palm and the maître d "suggests" you put on a sport coat.

Azarenka didn't look pleased to be making the court change. And she certainly wasn't feeling the tight arm holes on the shirt.

She issued no further complaint and wore the shirt for the rest of practice.

Azarenka shouldn't get rid of the T-shirt just yet. When the Olympics start at the All England Club in two weeks, players will be allowed to wear whatever color they'd like.
