Even spectators at Wimbledon have to wear white sometimes.

One man was pulled from the crowd during a women's invitational doubles match yesterday and given the chance to try to return a serve from four-time major champion Kim Clijsters.

In a nod to the All England Club's strict rules about clothing for competitors, Clijsters went over to the sideline and grabbed a white skirt for the man to put over his blue shorts.

Because he had on a light green shirt, he also was given a white shirt to pull on.

Clijsters served - and the man got the ball back over the net.
