Officials "annoyed" with Jelena's attire

Just saw this on the sports tonight preview I actually don't blame them. She was wearing three-quarter length pants, and her t-shirt did have an oversized logo planted on it.



At least Jelena wasn't wearing the same sweat-pants she's had on for the past fortnight

Daniela Hantuchova.

I was shocked to see her walk onto court like that. I thought she had shorts underneath her 3/4 pants. But she didn't!

Here we go again...

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

I dunno. It wasn't that bad. I just didn't expect her to play in 3/4 pants even though I play in 3/4 pants all the time I'm not the only person

Maybe she just wanted it and the focus on her
to be all about tennis, maybe.

Give her a break guys, she hasn't been playing or practising well and obviously she has been making less money then what is needed to get her going, maybe she can not afford things at the moment .... or maybe all she is concentrating about at the moment is playing well again not how she looks....

She looked like she was wearing a practice outfit. All the other players were dressed up in their normal match gear.

Shes still made about 10 times more in her career than all of these other girls have put together, so its not like shes poor and destitute just because shes had a bad year recently.

not saying she cant wear what she wore, just that u understand why officials arent exactly happy

BTW, she's definitely more well-off than the rest of the girls in the playoff. she's not a poor destitute player struggling to make ends meet

Maybe Jelena isn't confident with her current physique and is therefore avoiding shorts? Anyways, I think she looks great, whatever she chooses to wear.

It looks like practice clothes. Is there a rule that says that players cant wear that???

When I first saw the pics I thought it was from a practice session rather then an actual match. She knows the media is going to be there taking photos. It doesn’t hurt to put some tennis attire on. Some nice shorts and a much smaller shirt would have been a lot better.
I'm just glad she won the match and goes on to win the whole thing. Good Luck Jelena!!!

but shouldn't the players know the rules or something...if there are rules? even protocol...or somebody should have advised her then......

but yeah i do get why officials would be scratching their heads a little...but it's a minor issue really and easy to solve - just tell her to wear clothes that qualify more as match gear the next time...
