Serena Williams and her stunning Wimbledon outfit

 

Serena Williams has been chasing for the last couple of years her 24th slam title. The American ace was extremely close to conquering the elusive major as she reached 4 slam finals in after her pregnancy, but eventually she couldn’t make it.

 

 

Serena was quite unlucky after Wimbledon canceled the event this year because of the Coronavirus as she had rather good chances play for the title. The 39-year-old had also a fantastic outfit that was designed for her for the Championships. Unfortunately, she could use it only in her own garden instead of displaying it at SW19.

Why do Wimbledon players wear white outfit?

 

 

If you watch Wimbledon, you’ll know that all tennis players on The Championship courts wear white. Why is Wimbledon Championships strict about wearing whites only?  Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and others challenging Wimbledon dress code.

This is because the tournament has a strict dress code, which states ‘Competitors must be dressed in suitable tennis attire that is almost entirely white and this applies from the point at which the player enters the court surround. White does not include off white or cream.’

The rules get even more specific from there. Shoes, soles and laces must all be white, as must the backs of shirts and undergarments. Only a thin, single strip of colour is allowed on necklines, sleeves, trousers and skirts, wristbands and headwear, no bigger than 10mm.

So, why are the rules so stringent? Why do Wimbledon players wear white outfits?

‘Tennis whites’ at Wimbledon reportedly date back to the 1800s. The tournament launched in 1877, and in this Victorian era, it was believed white would be the ideal colour for players to wear. White clothing would prevent or minimise sweat stains visible on the players clothes, and be ‘cooling’, it was thought.

The rules on what constituted an appropriately-white outfit weren’t always as strict, though. Clothing guidelines were updated in 1963, and again in 1995, before the 10-part clothing and equipment decree was issued in 2014.

Of course, Wimbledon watchers do not have to wear white. It’s just a rule for players on the court.
