Wimbledon fan invited on court to put on skirt and face Kim Clijsters' serve after shouting advice

Source: The Telegraph

It must rank as one of the most endearing moments of this year’s Wimbledon - when a four time Grand Slam winner invited a spectator to join in her match.

Kim Clijsters beckoned a fan onto the court during her invitation doubles match on Friday, after he shouted out his suggestion for where she could serve.

But instead of upbraiding him for his cheek, Clijsters - a three times US Open winner and twice Wimbledon semi finalist - invited him to face her serve by taking the place of her opponent at the other end of Court Three.

...

Mr Quinn later thanked Clijsters, writing on Twitter: “Thank you for going easy on me with the serve. You have made me a bigger hero to my 3 daughters who worship you by the way.2

He added: “Will teach me to open my mouth again. They were awesome. And I got to play in Wimbledon. One off the bucket list.”

2. Do they serve beer at Wimbleton?

That's the only explanation why this happened that I could come up with.
