Women play­ers refuse to take Nike’s short cut

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

Fe­male ten­nis play­ers left the new Nike dress in the chang­ing rooms, choos­ing less re­veal­ing at­tire for the first day of Wim­ble­don.

More than 20 fe­male play­ers are spon­sored by Nike at the tour­na­ment and were given a short-cut, floaty white kit to wear. But sev­eral, in­clud­ing Bri­tish player Naomi Broady, chose to sport more mod­est whites. Ger­man Sabine Lisicki de­scribed the dress as “too re­veal­ing”.

An email sent by the man­u­fac­turer asked the play­ers to re­turn the dresses for al­ter­ation.
