Nick Kyrgios's official Wimbledon headband disallowed by dress code

Friday July 3rd, 2015

Nick Kyrgios took the court at Wimbledon for his third round match with Milos Raonic on Friday wearing an official Wimbledon headband sporting the club's purple and green colorway.

In a wonderful piece of irony, the Australian star was quickly instructed to turn the headband inside out, as the colors were in violation of the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club's famously strict all-white dress code.

The adjustment did not seem to bother Kyrgios though as he scored the upset in the rematch of last year's quarterfinal against Raonic and moved on to the fourth round of play.

After the match Kyrgios faced a press that was more eager to talk about the headband than his victory though.
