The Wimbledon dress code is quite inflexible and a boys’ doubles team found that out the hard way Wednesday.

The No. 1 seeds in boys’ doubles, 18-year-olds Zsombor Piros of Hungary and Yibing Wu of China, were forced to change from black underwear into white underwear before their match Wednesday, in accordance with tournament rules. The dress code for Wimbledon states that outfits must be all white with the exception of a trim of color no wider than a centimeter, including underwear.
