Nick Kyrgios wants to wear all black but Wimbledon ‘don’t care what looks cool’

Tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios has admitted he'd love to wear all-black at Wimbledon because it's 'cooler' but admits the dress code won't change.

SW19 has become notorious for its strict dress code, which demands players wear all-white when playing. However, it doesn't stop there, and rulers are brought out regularly to measure collar and sleeve lengths.

In fact, the dress code on the grass courts is so strict, players are banned from wearing off-white or cream despite how similar it looks. "I always want to wear all black, obviously," Kyrgios said ahead of his first-round match with British wildcard Paul Jubb.

The Australian added: "But I don't think it's something that's going to change, I don't know.

"I think it would be cool to allow, like, a black headband or black sweatband. I think it would look cool. Obviously, Wimbledon doesn't really care what looks cool… I don't think it will ever change."

Despite his annoyance with the dress code, Kyrgios has yet to test the waters by pushing the patience of the organisers.

In 2013, court legend Roger Federer found even he wasn't above the sacred dress code when he was penalised for wearing orange soles on his trainers. The Swiss great was forced to change shoes for his next match.

Meanwhile, American superstar Andre Agassi completely skipped the tournament between 1988 and 1990 due to the dress code.
