Marcus Willis Wokingham's Wimbledon Hero

28 June 2016, 06:50

Wokingham's Marcus Willis has stormed into the second round of Wimbledon.

The world number 772 took time out from his coaching job at Warwick Boat Club to enter pre-qualifying two weeks ago and six victories later found himself in the draw for the world's most prestigious tennis tournament.

He beat Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis, ranked 54, in straight sets, backed up by a raucous cheer squad of his friends who have dubbed themselves the Berkshire Bulldogs.

The 25-year-old, who went to Forest School in Winnersh and lives with his parents, described his presence at Wimbledon as ``ridiculous'' and ``surreal''.

He got involved with the chants of ``Willbomb's on fire, Berankis is terrified''.

Marcus takes on Roger Federer tomorrow.
