It started last week when Nike asked players wearing their ‘Premier Slam’ dress to return the outifts for urgent alterations. While the dress, likened to a nightie by some, was technically in keeping with Wimbledon’s strict dress code, there was a suggestion its short, floaty style might not be suitable for competitive tennis. The Czech Republic’s, Lucie Safarova, donned the baby doll dress and despite it riding up a few times, breezed through her first round.
Players at Wimbledon wearing Nike's “Premier Slam” dress have reportedly been asked to return it for alterations because it didn’t cover enough skin.

Fresh from her Wimbledon victory, Serena Williams looked every inch the Queen of the red carpet in a stunning, floor-length dress at the Champion’s Dinner on Sunday, July 12.

The novelist - real name Joanne Rowling – slammed the troll with a comeback that has since been retweeted 83,000 times.
