Roger Federer can't wear his orange shoes at Wimbledon anymore

The All England Club is strict on its rules. Even to a seven-time Wimbledon champion.

Hey, rules are rules. And Roger Federer broke them, I guess, with his shoes. They were white, but the bottoms were orange and orange isn't white, so the folks at Wimbledon aren't having any of it, even if fans like the Nike shoes so much they're already sold out.

The Swiss star - a seven-time winner at the All England Club - has been told the orange-soled trainers he wore in his victory over Victor Hanescu on Monday were not acceptable.

No word yet on whether or not Roger Goodell is campaigning to be commissioner of the All England Club.
