Alize Cornet handed violation for changing shirt on court at US Open

A code violation handed to French women's tennis player Alize Cornet for taking off her shirt on court at the US Open has sparked outrage, given that male players are able to change shirts on court.

An extreme heat policy - offering female players a 10-minute break before the deciding third sets can be played - was implemented on medical advice at the New York tournament after temperatures reached up to 38C.

Returning to court following the break in her match against Swede Johanna Larsson, Cornet realised her shirt was on back to front and quickly turned it around.

The switch took a matter of seconds and Cornet was wearing a sports bra underneath.

But the world No.31 was immediately hit with a code violation by the chair umpire for her actions.
