Davis Cup hasn't been played there recently. They play up in Stirling in Scotland.Do they wear white when Davis cup is played there?
This. Exactly. If Wimbledon DIDN'T relax the rules, the Olympics would not be held at Wimbledon and considering Wimbledon probably helped entice the Olympics (albeit minor considering tennis is inconsequential) the London committee probably urged Wimbledon as well.I can't imagine the IOC allowing an external private organization to dictate terms on how olympic events are conducted. They agreed to supply the venue, end of story.
Are you a troll? Wimbledon =/= Olympics.i think it's appalling
your life must be so dull rules rules rules
I went there a few years ago when GB played against Croatia. They didn't wear whiteDavis Cup hasn't been played there recently. They play up in Stirling in Scotland.
Balanced out, I accidentally voted "yes" instead of no :lol: I say no, but purely for personal/sentimental reasons, it's gonna be weird seeing people on the Wimbledon lawns in basically every color of the rainbow :shrug: Maybe because that was my first ever tournament, and I would personally dread the day they ever get rid of that rule. But yeah it's true, two different tournaments.Oh, damn I voted "no" instead of "yes."
It's the Olympics, participants should have the option of wearing their nations' colours. If I were competing, I'd be decked head to toe in this shade of green:
thisKeeping the "mainly white" rule for the Olympics would ruin Wimbledon itself, it's perfectly right to have a difference between The Championships and the Olympic tournament...
