Tennis star Clijsters invites heckler on court at Wimbledon (VIDEO)
Tennis fans watching a friendly match at Wimbledon were treated to some unexpected play when a male heckler was invited to put his own advice into practice and take on former professional Kim Clijsters.

Clijsters was playing in an invitational doubles match Friday, when a spectator shouted that she should attempt a serve into the body of her opponent.

Responding to the request, Clijsters, who retired professionally in 2012, joked that he should try returning a ‘body serve’.

The former US 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.

With the crowd cheering him on, the fan, identified as Irishman Chris Quinn, managed to return a serve, much to the amusement of Clijsters.

After the brief, and bizarre, stop in play, Quinn then posed for photographs in his newly-acquired tennis attire before returning to his seat.

“I need a new tennis outfit now I guess…. Definitely a man’s one this time,” Quinn said on Facebook. “Got to keep the skirt too.”

Clijsters has since praised her surprise opponent for his good form.
