- Fan approached Federer on court Sunday to take photo
- ‘No change' to all-white clothing rule after Federer criticism
The All England Club, organizers of the Wimbledon Championships, is reviewing its security arrangements after a fan managed to get on the main show court at the French Open with Roger Federer on Sunday.
Officials at Roland Garros apologized to the 17-time Grand Slam champion after the teenager tried to take a selfie on the Court Philippe Chatrier following Federer’s first-round win. It took security guards about six seconds to apprehend the fan, who has since been banned from the tournament. The Swiss player criticized tournament organizers afterward.
Wimbledon starts June 29 in London.
After his opening round, Federer also criticized Wimbledon organizers for their all-white clothing rule, saying they had become “ridiculously strict.”
“There has been no change in the clothing rules from last year,” Perkins said.
