London: Wimbledon stars have joined forces to slam the controversial dress causing a stir among female players shocked by its revealing 'baby doll' style.

Kit manufacturers Nike have been keen to push their 'Premier Slam' dress during the grass-court Grand Slam, but the outfit has been deemed too skimpy by the likes of former Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki.

Concerned that the dress shows too much flesh when it flies up above the waistline, several players with Nike contracts reportedly asked for the kit to be altered ahead of Wimbledon.

Lisicki, the 2013 Wimbledon runner-up, said: "Yes I did (try the dress). I didn't feel comfortable showing that much (flesh)," she said.
