Wimbledon is one of the oldest Tennis tournaments in the world and regarded as  the most prestigious . There are many rules for the game but the most outdated is about the players clothing. Not the part that insists they should wear almost entirely white attire.But rather the one that refers to the color of their underwear .

First player for this Wimbledon is none other than Venus Williams who was asked to change her pink bra after the first round of the play.When asked by the media she responded as “I don’t like talking about bras in press conference,it’s weird”.
