The Duchess of Cornwall took home a prized but somewhat sweat-soaked souvenir from her day out at Wimbledon's Centre Court on Thursday.

It has become a tradition for British number one Andy Murray to throw his wristbands into the crowd after a win at SW19 but has one ever gone home in a Royal's handbag?

Camilla was watching the Scot's second-round straight-set victory over Dutchman Robin Haase.

Murray threw his wristbands into the crowd and happened to hit Wimbledon chairman Philip Brook, who was sitting next to Camilla in the VIP section.

"I saw Camilla just after the match,'' Murray said. "Then the Duchess opened up her bag and my wristband was in there, so he (Brook) obviously had passed it over to her. It was very sweaty."

Kyrgios is off the wall

Nick Kyrgios wouldn't let a thing like a wall get in the way of watching compatriots Lleyton Hewitt and Thanasi Kokkinakis in the doubles.

The 20-year-old scaled a wall outside Court 14 to catch a glimpse of the Wimbledon doubles victory by his fellow Australians.

He demonstrated loyalty that the 'Fanatics', Australia's gold and green band of super-fans, would have been proud of.

But as the Daily Telegraph's Jonathan Liew tweeted, the 26th seed was asked by a steward to get down.

"He waited until the stewards had gone, immediately tried to climb back up, and then thought better of it," Liew added.

Wimbledon's "ridiculously strict" dress code came under fire from seven-time champion Roger Federer ahead of the tournament and an umpire checked to see if Canada's Eugenie Bouchard had broken any rules during her first-round defeat by having her black bra strap on show.

Shorts won French Open - Wawrinka

And it seems that, with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour watching from Centre Court's Royal Box, everyone fancies themselves as a fashion critic.

Flamboyant American Bethanie Mattek-Sands wore knee-high white socks during her second-round win over Ana Ivanovic.

"I didn't even get married in white," said the tattooed 30-year-old, who once appeared on Wimbledon Centre Court wearing a coat made of tennis balls.

"I have I think one legal pair of shorts. One skirt, I think, that's legal."

Caroline Wozniacki, whose Wimbledon dress features netting and partly exposes her midriff, says players like to "be creative" with their outfits.

"I think every tennis player enjoys to play with a tiny little bit of colour. At the end of the day, we do that every other week of the year. It's fun to try to be creative even though you have to wear white."

Dreddy Tennis does for Nadal

Germany's world number 102, Dustin Brown, who goes by the Twitter handle @dreddytennis, was one of the top trending terms worldwide as his four-set defeat of two-time Wimbledon winner Rafael Nadal lit up both Centre Court and social media.

Compatriot and women's 18th seed Sabine Lisicki was not the only one enthralled - Brown added 20,000 Twitter followers in three hours and had footballers Joey Barton, Jozy Altidore and Robert Huth glued to the action.
