Wimbledon players called out for plundering free food

The Australian Open has experimented with offering players unlimited food, but the policy was abandoned after it was feared to have been exploited.

Competitors and coaches at Wimbledon can pay for food simply by scanning their accreditation pass.

There are in total six different outlets players can use, including two sandwich bars, two restaurants and two coffee shops.

Competitors at Wimbledon typically gravitate towards the Players’ Lounge, situated next to Center Court, which comprises a range of sub outlets, such as a sushi bar.

Of the top players, Djokovic is arguably the most famously careful with his diet, which is made up mainly of vegetables, beans, white meat, fish, fruit and nuts.

Preferring to eat gluten-free foods, the Serb required special deliveries to the hotel in which he was detained during the Covid vaccination controversy at this year’s Australian Open.

He reportedly ordered a personal chef during the debacle.

Nadal might also struggle were he to rely on the Wimbledon restaurants.

Seafood is known to make up a majority of the Spaniard’s diet, with steamed fish and shrimp dumplings among his favorite dishes.

Both are a good source of protein for the famously gym-dedicated player.

Organisers are not currently planning to change the cap.
