Greystones man dons skirt to join women's doubles match at Wimbledon

Kim Clijsters gives the tennis fan a hand at pulling on his regulation white skirt for a hit on the Wimbledon lawns

Kim Clijsters has always been a fan favourite and during an invitational doubles event at Wimbledon on Friday she's reminded us all why. That's when a fan from the stands shouted "body serve".

Clijsters then went into the crowd and called down said man and asked him to serve, and was even nice enough to give him a skirt and her racquet to play with.

But seeing him not in all whites, which is the traditional dress code followed at the Wimbledon, Kim ran to take out one of her spare white skirts.

The four-time Grand Slam victor Clijsters, on hearing the reply, said, "You said body?"

Roly-poly father-of-three Chris Quinn, from Wicklow, Ireland had told the ex-Australian Open and US Open victor where to serve from the stands of Court Three.

Mohamed Salah had 'no idea' how Liverpool defend in debut - Jurgen Klopp
Prior to the forward reporting for pre-season, Klopp told the club's official website: "He is a fantastic player, with speed". He narrowly shot over from an angle, but his little show of lightening was appreciated with applause at DW Stadium.

Mr Quinn bravely managed to pull the skirt up as Clijsters, 34, lost her composure and collapsed laughing onto the court.

Clijsters served - and to loud cheers the man got the ball back over the net.

1 Kim Clijsters lightened up the court at the Wimbledon 2017 playing an invitational match.

Martinez and Jaeger joined in the spirit and got Quinn on court - but there was a hitch, as every player has to wear all white, rather than the green and blue combo he was sporting.
