US Open regret penalising Alize Cornet for changing shirt on court

French tennis players Alize Cornet has been issued a code violation for taking off her top at the US Open

Cornet returned to the court following a 10-minute heat break before the third set of her first-round match on Tuesday and discovered she had put her new shirt on backwards.

The chair umpire's decision has drawn sharp criticism on social media. Changed at back of court.

Alize Cornet of France hits a shot against Ashleigh Barty of Australia (not pictured) during the Rogers Cup tennis tournament at Stade IGA. She quickly pulled up her pink striped top and turned away from the court cameras as she took it off, showing her black and red sports bra underneath. "Unsportsmanlike conduct. But the men change shirts on court".

A female tennis player has copped a dress code violation for taking her shirt off on court during the US Open. Got a code violation.

Cornet took advantage of the rule during her match with Sweden's Johanna Larsson and opted to change her outfit off court.

The WTA has not commented on Cornet's code violation.

U.S. player Bethanie Mattek-Sands called the decision "weak", while Australia's Casey Dellacqua said the violation was "ridiculous", according to the Guardian UK. "We regret that Ms. Cornet was assessed a code violation".

Google Maps is also adding public transport guidance, which will inform riders of upcoming stops and alerts on when to get off. According to Google, the amount of online content in Indian languages is only 1 percent of what's available in English.

"We have clarified the policy to ensure this will not happen moving forward".

Twitter user Alissa Warren tweeted a picture of Novak Djokovic topless on court, writing: "Busted for code violation [sic] #alizecornet took 10 sec to turn top right way but #novacdjokovic can sit for minutes half-naked".

'Fortunately, she was only assessed a warning with no further penalty or fine.

"Female players, if they choose, may also change their shirts in a more private location close to the court, when available". We follow WTA proceedures regarding bathroom breaks.

WTA rules state women are not allowed to change while on the court, according to the Daily Mail.

The controversy comes shortly after the French Open announced a controversial new attire policy that specifically banned the catsuit Serena Williams wore at this year's tournament in Paris.

The penalty doesn't affect the score, and Cornet ultimately lost to Larsson 6-4, 3-6, 2-6.
