Heckler 'gets served' after Kim Clijsters invites him onto Wimbledon court

Kim Clijsters winds up for the serve

In a nod to the All England Club's clothing rules, Clijsters went over to the sideline and grabbed a white skirt for the man to put over his blue shorts.

But that's not exactly what happened during four-time Grand Slam victor Kim Clijsters's invitation doubles match at Wimbledon.

Four-time Grand Slam victor Kim Clijsters and former doubles champ Rennae Stubbs were playing 1994 Wimbledon champion Conchita Martínez and former World No 2 Andrea Jaeger in the Ladies' Invitation Doubles when Greystones man Quinn wrote his own place in SW19 history.

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.

During an exhibition match on the sidelines of Wimbledon 2017, retired Belgian player Kim Clijsters invited a fan to come play.

They were tied at 4-4 in the second set, and while the two were discussing placement of former world number-one Clijsters's next serve should be "wide or down the middle", Quinn shouted for her to send it "to the body". "But I didn't think about it, I just pulled it up and one of the other ladies got a white top for me".

Improbable as it initially seemed, Quinn squeezed into the spare outfit and was ready to play, so Clijsters returned to her side of the net and fired across a serve.

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

Well its not everyday I get to share Wimbledon headlines with roger federer.

When the fun was over Clijsters and Stubbs went on to wallop their opponents, 6-2, 7-5.

Mr Quinn kept the skirt which Clijsters gave him and says he is planning to auction it off in aid of charity.
