US Open Is Getting Ripped After Girl Player Is Punished For Taking Off Shirt

Officials at the US Open have been been handed the sexist label after after handing player Alize Cornet a code violation for turning her top the right way around on the court. AS you see in the video below Alize Cornet briefly (literally for a second) took her shirt off and turned it around.

The French player, who was facing Swedish star Johanna Larsson in New York, was going back to the court after a short ‘heat break’ due to sweltering temperatures, when she appeared to notice that her top was on backwards. Turning away from cameras, Cornet pulled the shirt up and moved it around the correct way.

 

According to World Tennis Association rules:

Women players aren’t allowed to change their clothing while on the court – however men can, which has led to people flocking to social media to slam the ‘ridiculous‘ and ‘sexist’ rules.

Others were quick to point out the unfair gender split, with one person posting: “Busted for code violation Alize Cornet took 10 sec to turn top right way but Novac Djokovic can sit for minutes half-naked. Same comparison.
