Official Wimbledon headband ruled too colorful for tournament's own dress code

Not even official Wimbledon gear is safe from Wimbledon's ultra-conservative dress code. Up-and-coming Australian Nick Kyrgios sported one of the tournament's own headbands -- with thick stripes in Wimbledon's green-and-purple colors across the middle -- in this third-round match against Canadian Milos Raonic on Friday.

Indian Wells ATP Review: Mastery Remains Reserved For A Few

Everyone has his or her own dividing line for when to start — or stop — measuring anything under the sun.
