Clijsters gets crowd involved in hilarious Wimbledon moment

Instead of ignoring the impromptu coaching, the tennis great invited the heckler to have a go at it himself. One such incident took place during the ladies invitational doubles competition at Wimbledon 2017 on Friday. A man in a skirt on court is the last thing one would have expected to see at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

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.

The former USA and Australian Open champion then plucked the cheeky tennis fan from the crowd, before trussing him up in a white skirt and t-shirt to comply with Wimbledon's strict dress code.

Chris Quinn, a tennis fan from Ireland, was quick to reply and ended up having the time of his life.

Clijsters immediately rushed to get a spare skirt from her kit-bag and a zip-up jacket for him to wear.

A little problem that popped up was that the man was in a blue-coloured short and a green shirt.

Clijsters regained her composure somewhat and served - with Quinn managing to return!

Should Clijsters or, indeed, any of her fellow players, need a new Mixed Doubles partner, they know who to call.

He managed to get a picture with the players on court before returning to the stands where I'm sure he would have developed a wrist injury from high-fiving everyone. He was not wearing all white, which is against the rules.
