Well, all of the above featured in this year’s competition.

Wicklow man Chris Quinn was trying to impart some advice to the players while he watched a ladies doubles match.

Kim Clijsters asked her teammate Rennae Stubbs whether she should serve wide or down the middle.

An Irish fan near the front row chimed in with his opinion of “body” – so Clijsters brought him on to the court to see if he could handle it.
