Wimbledon Bans Roger Federer's Shoes

According to The Daily Mail, Wimbledon have deemed Roger Federer's shoes too colourful for the all-white tournament.

Wimbledon's rules dictate that a player must wear gear that is almost entirely white. Most players add small details of colour to their outfits. Federer in the past has been a fan of the white and gold look.

This year, Federer's outfit is adorned with small amounts of orange, but Wimbledon have ruled that his shoes with orange soles are not quite white enough. It all seems a little silly, considering the women often wear colourful undershorts and the rules seem pretty subjective.

Although I think Wimbledon are being a little finicky, I'm not a fan of the shoes anyway. I'm looking forward to seeing the new ones when he takes on Sergiy Stakhovsky in his second round match today.

Are you kidding me? The bottom of his shoes are too colorful so he can't wear them but Serena can wear those god awful orange shorts and that is okay? I guess when it is Serena they allow anything because she is black and god forbid we make her follow the rules like anyone else. Guess it would be "racist" if they made Serena do what everyone else has to do. Ridiculous! She is an ignorant, loud mouthed, uncouth individual and the sooner she is gone from the public's eye the better. She can go off with her "married boyfriend" and get the classless out of the tennis world.

You seem to be taking things way too personally it's almost funny! All that huffing and puffing for what exactly? Why has race ALWAYS has to be an issue to you people anyway? Sharapova and a few other girls ALSO WEAR COLORFUL underpants! Or are you ONLY noticing the woman of color because of YOURE personal grudge towards her?
