With a record eight Wimbledon titles, Roger Federer has achieved most things at the All England Club. However, he is yet to have his underwear inspected in forensic detail by over-zealous officials keen to enforce the tournament's all-white clothing policy.

Wimbledon's insistence on all-white playing gear is strictly observed with only the tiniest amounts of colour allowed on shirts, shorts and dresses. "It's good fun that it's different, but it would be nice to add a splash of colour. I understand that traditions are the way they are. Back in the day, Borg and McEnroe walked out in red outfits. I'm not saying that should happen again. Maybe it would be nice if we mix it up a little bit more," Federer said.
