Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer has been told he is not allowed to wear trainers with orange soles at the championship.

Reports claimed that officials have warned a few players about their outfits which are said to be contradictory to Wimbledon’s all-white dress code.

But contrary to reports, defending women’s champion Serena Williams has not been told to swap to more conventional footwear after the American played with trainers trimmed with orange. If Maria Sharapova, who wore orange shorts under her white dress in her first-round win over Kristina Mladenovic has also been warned, is not yet certain.

Federer, 31, wore the trainers as he eased past Victor Hanescu 6-3, 6-2, 6-0 in the first round.

The official guidelines states that: “Including the warm-up period, players at Wimbledon must be dressed almost entirely in white.”

In a bid to prevent such incidents, tournament regulations states that manufacturers must submit all clothing designs for inspection some time before the start. But there is less intense scrutiny of shoes before play begins.
