Wimbledon has always been very concerned with the clothing of its competitors. Their all-white rule dates all the way back to the 1800s when the sport was primarily played at social gatherings. But in the last few years, Wimbledon has taken it a step too far, telling players that the brims of hats and bottom of shoes must also be white. On Tuesday, Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard was penalized for her black sports bra that was worn underneath her white sports bra.

We’ve reached the nadir of Wimbledon, everyone.
