Wimbledon Spectator Dons White Skirt As He Joins Kim Clijsters On Court

One man was pulled from the crowd during a women's invitational doubles tennis match and given the chance to try to return a serve from four-time major champion Kim Clijsters.

Chris Quinn from Greystones offered his advice when Kim Clijsters asked her partner which way she should serve, Chris roared from the crowd "Body Serve". "They're not going to get over the knees!"

There was a big shout from the crowd from a fan who said "body line" just as Clijsters was gearing up to take her shot. One incident that happened during the ladies' invitation doubles on Friday at Wimbledon proves it.

Fire ban in place across BC
Fire suppression this season has cost the province $77 million and the bill for supporting evacuees has yet to be tallied. After a couple of relatively quiet days, the B.C. wildfire situation is expected to worsen through this weekend.

Clijsters checked with him whether he had actually said that, and once convinced, she invited him to the court which he duly accepted.

A little problem that popped up was that the man was in a blue-coloured short and a green shirt. However, he wasn't following the rules and wearing all-white, but it was fine because Clijsters helped him out.

Credit to the fan for not only making reasonable attempts to return the serve from Clijsters, but also for complying with the all-white dress code enforced at Wimbledon. But the excited fan managed to wear the skirt and was later seen donning a matching white t-shirt as well. He later posed with the four female greats after the match and what a memorable moment it turned out to be.
