Note to the trashy lady ballers in Melbourne: BEWARE.
Tourney officials have threatened to slap fines of up to $2000 on anyone sporting duds they consider to be "skimpy" after Alize Cornet caused a stir by wearing a supposed "see-through top" during a Hopman Cup doubles match last week.
The Frenchie may have realized something was up because she donned a towel during a post-match on-court interview with partner Gilles Simon:
"No, that wasn't the point. Ha! Get it? 'The point, 'headlights'. So crazy...")
Officials have promised to scrutinize the ladies' outfits for the year's first major according to referee Wayne McKewen:
They should be dressed in what we say is tennis attire.Whatevs. I can deal with a little boob + butt but I can't deal with arbitrary rules like what they're proposing.
I'm more concerned about who's going to save us from looking at crap like this for two weeks (no offense Nads, nice to see you back!):
