Rules are rules, even for super fans: Wimbledon's famous all-white edict for players' and coaches' clothing and apparel is now influencing Jannik Sinner's Carota Boys fan club.

The popular carrot-inspired squad has taken tennis by storm over the last year as Sinner has soared to the top of the game, and the group has once again traveled to the All England Club to support their man this year. But for their return trip, four of the members humorously traded their orange carrot costumes for white ones.

"Since we love traditions and Wimbledon is the traditional tournament, here is the white carrot," they wrote on their official Instagram account, which now boasts over 140,000 followers.

They debuted the new bleached look ahead of the top seed's fourth-round match against Ben Shelton on No.1 Court, and just like in the pomp of Wimbledon itself, the devil's in the details. The white suits have the group's now-signature 'C' logo in a crest on the chest in Wimbledon's signature green and purple colors, with "Carota Boys, Wimbledon Edition" stitched underneath.


The new costumes were met with applause from fans and followers, even if some suggested they were giving more ravanello (that's Italian for radish) than carota bianca.

But wth the squad cheering him on for part of the match, world No. 1 Sinner's march on Wimbledon continued with a 6-2, 6-4, 7-6(9) win over No. 14 seed Ben Shelton. After a comfortable first two sets, Sinner saved four set points in the third set in a match played entirely with the roof closed as more wet weather interrupted play for the fourth day in seven so far at the Championships.

"I'm very happy to close it in three. The atmosphere, as always, has been amazing," Sinner told the No.1 Court crowd.


"The Boys" also witnessed history: Sinner is the first Italian man to reach the quarterfinals at the grass-court Grand Slam three times or more.
