Best Answer

In the event of a "wardrobe malfunction" during a USTA or professional tennis match, the current point would continue to be played until one of the players has won that point. Generally speaking, the player so affected would be given a brief amount of time to quickly change clothing on the court premises. However, if the player required a long time, as might be the case if no replacement is within easy reach, then the player would be granted a reasonable amount of time to obtain/change clothing off the court, per ITF/USTA Rule 29.b (n.b., in a professional match, a court official would follow the player off the court, to ensure that no coaching occurs). For further information, refer to the USTA link, below.
