Camila Giorgi was addressed about her decision of dress for the French Open third round yet the design socially awkward act didn’t divert the Italian as she walked ahead in Paris.

Giorgi, the world No. 30, upset seventh seed Aryna Sabalenka 4-6, 6-1, 6-0 to advance to the fourth round at Roland Garros without precedent for her vocation as the bloodletting went on in the ladies’ draw.

Giorgi was addressed by the umpire before her match against Sabalenka started off, the authority seeming to generally dislike a publicizing logo on her dress being too huge.

“I have no change, this is my main dress. I played with it previously,”

Giorgi apparently said.

According to tennis commentator Jose Morgado, the umpire told Giorgi she could play in her outfit but would talk to the “office” about it after the match.

The problem was reportedly related to the size of the logo for kitchen appliance manufacturer DeLonghi on Giorgi’s chest. Before the match the 30-year-old posted a photo of herself in the locker room on Instagram, tagging DeLonghi.

Giorgi had worn the same style of dress earlier in the tournament but without the DeLonghi logo.
