I personally wish they won't.
Tradition is a tradition, and players should respect that and dress properly.
That's not even that hard.
No reason to insist on wearing those shirts and shorts.

"Wimbledo-nians" are no sweet hearts. If they don't want them they won't allow them. They don't care who you are or what you've won. Nadal and company better call up and check.

RAFEL NADAL fot canya, NO ?

If Nadal wears a green shirt and falls on his chest, someone could think the court has huge bumps

The crapi pants have already been approved by Wimbledon, I am not sure about the sleeves.

I was hoping they would continue to be eccentric and insist on above-the-knee.

Capris are fine and were quite popular in Spain long time before Nadal and LaLo started wearing them. Sleeveless also do fine for me. Typical shorts and Lacoste-like T-shirts are fucking boring

That's why they are appropriate for Wimbledon.
