MEET MARCUS WILLIS
For the first few days at Wimbledon this year, people were not talking about Andy Murray, Serena Williams or any of the other big stars of tennis. They were talking about a man ranked 772 in the world. Marcus Willis was only able to enter pre-qualifying for Wimbledon when a fellow player couldn’t get home in time from another tournament. He needed to win six matches to even make it into the Wimbledon main draw. He did it, and then beat the World No. 54 Ricardas Berankis in the first round. It set him up with a second round encounter against the great Roger Federer. Every newspaper, television and radio station suddenly talked about the man they called ‘Will-Bomb’. His journey ended against Federer, but Wimbledon crowds will never forget Willis. The next step on what he hopes will be a road to the top of the game will begin in Vienna!
TIE BREAK STRENGTHS
Willis is a left-hander with a vicious serve and a very unusual style of play. It may take time for opponents to learn how to play him. Time is short in Tie Break Tens.
BIG OCCASION PLAYER
Willis plays his best tennis when there are plenty of people watching. Tie Break Tens in Vienna will suit him.
NOTHING TO LOSE
No-one expects Willis to win. That makes him dangerous.
