Following in the footsteps of Serena Williams is tennis player Martina Navratilova, who clearly speaks her mind through her garments.
Navratilova appeared on the court for a match at Wimbledon donning a white cap with the word, “Impeach,” printed on it.
Since Wimbledon has a hard-line dress code that bans players from raising political concerns with their outfits, she was asked to take off her cap, to which she replied, “Sorry about that, forgot I had it on.”
Her cap was interpreted as a shot at US president Donald Trump, with impeachment proceedings headlining American politics recently.

“Sorry about that,” Martina said. “Forgot I had it on.”
