Blog: Leonie BarrieWimbledon in knickers net

Leonie Barrie | 28 June 2007

So much for the tennis! Not only has the centre court action at Wimbledon been washed out by the rain, but discussions on yesterday’s games were dominated by a pair of knickers. French player Tatiana Golovin turned up on court wearing red underwear – throwing the referees into turmoil over whether or not she was breaking the tournament’s “predominantly white” dress code.

She was eventually given the go-ahead to play on, but only after it was agreed that they ended above the hemline. Not only was her choice of dress a first, but so was the opening question in the post-match news conference: “Can I ask you about your knickers?”
