  • Judy Murray took to twitter to question tennis officials

A female tennis player has copped a dress code violation for taking her shirt off on court during the US Open.

During the roughly 10-second clothing change, she exposed her black sports bra.

Judy Murray, the mother of former US Open champion Andy Murray, said in a viral tweet: "Alize Cornet came back to court after 10 minute heat break".

Chair umpire, Christian Rask, punished Cornet with a freakish code violation after the incident that was deemed inappropriate.

The chair umpire's decision has drawn sharp criticism on social media. Got a code violation. She was wearing a sports bra underneath but Cornett was immediatly hit with a code violation for the act.

After returning to the court and realising it was on backwards, Cornet pulled it off and promptly put it on the right way.

Casey Dellacqua, a former Australian tennis player, replied to Murray's tweet, writing: "Ridiculous".

Female players were granted the breaks between the second and third set, and male players, the third and fourth.

The Women's Tennis Association - founded by Billie Jean King in the early '70s - demands women change their shirts off court, in the "most private location".

The US Open has been accused of sexism after a male umpire punished a female tennis player for something men frequently do without fear of sanctions.

Cornet's treatment is a stark contrast to Djokovic's, and Fox 35 Good Day Anchor Bob Frier believes this is "totally sexist".

Alize Cornet was a victim of the brutal heat that has settled in over New York City at the start of the US Open.

Alize Cornet came back to court after 10 minute heat break. "Sorry, but that's wrong". Heat breaks were prompted in both men's and women's matches - resulting in the need for fresh attire.

Cornet was in the tournament against Swedish tennis player Johanna Larsson.

Novak Djokovic had the equivalent of an on-court ice bath with his shirt removed during his game against Hungary's Marton Fucsovics amid 32.2C (89.96F) temperatures.

Cornet, world #31 seed, went on to lose her match against Larsson, #82, in three sets, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
