The United States Tennis Association (USTA) has finally clarified its position in the code violation issue of French genius Alize Cornet, who shifted outfit off courtroom Tuesday.
Umpire Christian Rask was criticized heavily after he passed the planet No. 31 WTA participant a code violation.
According to principles WTA players may have a brief break of approximately 10 minutes away courtroom if the game is heading into a deciding set. Cornet abided by the standard but realized the fresh shirt has been set back . She quickly corrected it the rear of the court.
Former Australian participant Casey Dellacqua said the decision of Rask was ridiculous and Multiple Grand Slam doubles champion Bethanie Mattek-Sands labelled it weak.
USTA said the handing over a code violation wasn’t the right decision as the principles show outfits could be altered if sitting in the player chair.
A statement published by USTA read, “All players can change their shirts when sitting in the player chair… This is not considered a Code Violation.”
USTA further additional Cornet has only been cautioned without a fine or penalty was levied. Female players may choose to modify shirts in a more private location close to the courtroom, if one is available there, and this wouldn’t be considered as a toilet break.
Meanwhile, the WTA also has published a statement saying handing over code violation the participant was unfair since there is not any rule against reversal of shirt on courtroom and they will remain pioneer for girls and girls ’s sports.
Cornet dropped Tuesday’s match to Larsson by 6-4 3-6 2-6. In the minute round that she will probably be facing Angelique Kerber.
