Wimbledon player forced to change bra after entering court

Romanian player Mihaela Buzarnescu was forced to change her bra before her first round Wimbledon match against Schunk because the bra was not compliant with the Grand Slam’s rules. The Wimbledon supervisors observed Buzarnescu’s illegal bra while she was warming up for the match.

Following their observation, they proceeded to point out the irregularity to the Romanian player. Miki Buzarnescu explained the incident for Eurosport. In addition, she revealed how she solved the problem. “My bustier was too black and could be seen up here (e.d.

pointing to the bust area) and I had to change it. The white one I had was too transparent and you could see everything underneath and I couldn't wear it, so I borrowed from my coach, I took her bustier (e.d. laughs). That's good, we did it," said Buzarnescu.

However, Buzarnescu managed to win the match and was very happy about it. "I was extremely happy, especially after the injury I suffered a few days ago, when I didn't even know if I would be able to play in this tournament or not, and especially to be in the shape I was, after a short accommodation time.

It shows me that all my work in recent weeks has borne fruit today and I am very happy that I managed this victory,” said Buzarnescu for Eurosport.

Buzarnescu stopped in 2nd Wimbledon round

Even though Mihaela Buzarnescu got past the incident and beat Schunk in the first Wimbledon round, she was denied on Center Court by Coco Gauff in the next stage.

"I'm pretty honored to be on Centre Court following Nadal. I think that's pretty special..." said Gauff after her win over Romania's Mihaela Buzarnescu in straight sets of 6-2, 6-3. Buzarnescu is currently in 127th place in the WTA world ranking, but her career-high is number 20.
