Loudmouth fan invited by Clijsters on court to auction skirt for charity

"That's a man, in a skirt, trying to return Kim Clijsters serve - it's 2017 people", the commentator said. Rather than just ignore him, the former world No 1 instead invited Quinn onto the court to be on the receiving end.

Clijsters and Australian teammate Rennae Stubbs were discussing where to serve the ball when the courtside attendee made his uninvited suggestion.

Now it was time for Chris to put his money where his mouth was as he stood on the opposite side of the court, awaiting Kim's serve. The man was dressed in a rather baggy Green Lantern T-shirt and blue Nike shorts which went against the all-white dress code which Wimbledon has been known to religiously follow.

So Clijsters, not ready to give up, fetched a white skirt from her bag for the man to cram into.

When the clothes proved a tight fit, Clijsters was overtaken with giggles, collapsing on the court.

Quinn later took to Twitter to thank Clijsters for "making him a bigger hero" to his three daughters who are big fans of the Belgian star.

Amazingly, Chris returns the serve, but his second attempt hit the net.

They're having mighty craic at Wimbledon.

When the fun was over Clijsters and Stubbs went on to wallop their opponents, 6-2, 7-5. However, he wasn't following the rules and wearing all-white, but it was fine because Clijsters helped him out.
