Greystones Man Dons Skirt To Join Women’s Doubles Match At Wimbledon

As anyone who watches sports will tell you, there’s always a better way of doing things if the sportspeople would just listen to you.

However, in this instance, it went a step further. Kim Clijsters was taking part in the Ladies Invitational Doubles at Wimbledon with Rennae Stubbs against Jana Novotná and Barbara Schett. Just as Clijsters was about to serve, she asked her teammate where to aim the serve – which saw one man in the ground interject with a suggestion.

Clijsters then went into the crowd and called down said man and asked him to serve, and was even nice enough to give him a skirt and her racquet to play with.

Yes, really. Take a look.
