Federer: "If you look at the pictures of Edberg, Becker, there were some colours"

Seven time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer has joined the list of players who think that Wimbledon’s all white attire is too strict and needs to be relaxed a bit.

Federer said in a recent interview, "We're all white. White, white, full-on white. I think it's very strict. My personal opinion, I think it's too strict. If you look at the pictures of Edberg, Becker, there were some colours, you know, but it was 'all white'. “

“But I respect. I understand. Maybe one day they'll loosen up the grip again a bit, but that's the time we go through right now."

Now this is getting annoying.

I am a Federer fan but ffs all of you whining divas just stfu. You don't set the rules at Wimbledon and that's the way it should be.

I like it all white but that's me. I like to focus on tennis, not what players are wearing. Some outfits at other slams are simply hideous. We'll never completely agree about this.

Gargoylerer should just focus on the game.

That's because the all-white rule was tightened in 1995.

This is just Nike putting pressure on Federer to put pressure on the the All England Club to change their dress code.

Exactly, I was going to say that. I can't imagine Federer will care about this at all, especially when preparing for his semifinal, which is slightly more important. Sponsors do care though. These rules make it hard for them to stand out and show their new designs.

Heya was banned because she spoke the truth about Fed/Rodduck and refused to drink the Fed Kool-aid.

I think the white looks great but I'd never bother to bring up dress code as a topic of discussion. Most people couldn't be bothered with something so trivial. Even fewer are smug enough to criticize the traditions of a century old institution in the heart of Europe.

Enter Smuggerer...

Fed's taste is so cutting edge he broke up the monotonous white with some tasteful gold glitter and a matching gold man-bag while the world laughed at him because he looked like an eccentric but common interior painter lol.

Vain
Out of touch
Unfunny
Uneducated
Bad taste
Bad face

Now the "I" part of the Fed dictionary:

Incurious
Impolite
Isolent
Interfering
Inappropriate
Impertinent
Ill-mannered
Ingrate - criticizes an institution that made him rich
Insufferable

Other than that he's a great guy :spit:

What is this obsession with wearing all white? The KKK also wore all white. Let people add some color. Something. Something small. The fact is Wimbledon organizers treat players like cattle. And they are very creepy for checking what women are wearing under. A couple of players have already called that creepy. Something is very wrong here.

Yeah Fed's prostituted himself for years in the name of materialism. Money trumps tradition for Fed, it even trumps his own values and worldview (if he's even taken the time to form one).

The all white tradition stays whilst the evil Spanish Armada turns the courts to clay behind everyone's back

Intresting that Federer is challenging Wimbledon on this. If anyone can convince the AELTC to make changes its Federer. The all white looks nice. The colors inclusion like the Becker lotto shirt just doesn't look right for Wimbledon.
