WIMBLEDON BANS UNCLE TONY’S UBIQUITOUS BASEBALL CAP

THE LEMON: IMAGINATION SIX. TOLERANCE LOVE.

Wimbledon-All England Lawn Tennis Tennis & Croquet Club Board of Directors announces banning of Tony Nadal’s hat during broadcast tennis matches for Rafael Nadal.  “Uncle Tony” as he is known around the circuit and long time coach of 2x Wimbledon Champ will no longer be able to wear his ubiquitous baseball cap at the Championships.

Board member, The Lord O’Donnell GCB KCB, made the official announcement citing the need to keep sponsor logos and commercialism to a minimum to preserve the great heritage of the event.  Fellow Board Member Tim Henman, agreed to speak to the press utilizing his full name rather than the traditional letter abbreviations of his first and middle name. “While we appreciate the commercial appeal of our sport we have to draw the line here. We are not a NASCAR event.”

The sponsor, Iberostar Hotel & Resorts, PR representative was unavailable to comment because of a scheduled massage somewhere in the Canary Islands.  Reporters were notified to try calling back after Siesta.
