When Chris Quinn decided to give 4-time Grand Slam Winner Kim Clijsters advice on serving, he probably didn't expect her to invite him onto the court to try and accept one of her serves. To the crowd's delight, Quinn ran down the stands and hopped onto the court .

Kim Clijsters invites Irish tennis heckler onto … A portly tennis fan was invited to face the serve of former World Number 1 Kim Clijsters after he shouted advice to her during a friendly Wimbledon doubles match.

Belgian tennis star Kim Clijsters has beckoned a spectator who shouted advice to her during a doubles match at Wimbledon on Friday to come onto the court and receive her serve – with hilarious results.

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

“You said ‘body?’” four-time Grand Slam champion Clijsters replied.

“Why don’t you go there?” she said, indicating the court.

Forget Garbine smashing Venus (and even the Royal Box stars) - tubby tennis heckler who took on A portly tennis fan was invited to face the serve of former number 1 Kim Clijsters . Clijsters then sent down a serve which Quinn managed to return - but his second shot slammed into the net.

That’ll teach him. Former Number 1-ranked tennis player Kim Clijsters was in the middle of a friendly doubles match at Wimbledon on Saturday when a fan started heckling her from the stands. Instead of taking his advice, Clijsters invited the hecker, who was later identified as Chris Quinn, to face her.

Warming to Clijsters’ good-humoured ploy, opponents Conchita Martine and Andrea Jaeger welcomed the man – Chris Quinn, a father-of-three from Ireland – to join their team, drawing cheers from the crowd.

Before Mr Quinn could receive Clijsters’ serve however, there remained the question of meeting the Wimbledon dress code, which requires all players wear full white.

With Mr Quinn dressed in green shirt and blue shirts, Clijsters was forced to rummage through her tennis bag and produce a spare uniform – a white skirt and quarter zip jacket.

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

Wiping her tears of laughter away, Clijsters eventually managed to recover her racket and deliver Mr Quinn his promised serve.

The man netted his second volley and requested a second serve, only to lose the point again.

His moment in the spotlight having drawing to a close, a somewhat chastened Mr Quinn embraced Clijsters and some of the other players, posed for a photo and returned to his seat.

Nintendo's Switch Online smartphone app is now available .
After launching the Switch without an online service to speak of, Nintendo has released the iOS and Android app that will be required for much of the system's internet functionality.&nbsp;Splatoon 2 won't be released until Friday, and until then there isn't really much you can do with the Nintendo Switch Online app; it's launched a few days earlier than expected. The service is free for the rest of the year, but from 2018 Nintendo will charge $19.99 yearly — that fee will also give you access to an as-yet unspecified library of classic Nintendo games.
