Adding to the grandeur storyline of the fortnights, ‘fairy tales’ are wholly welcomed at Grand slams and this is especially the case when the protagonist is a native of the country. At this year’s Wimbledon, the first week’s attention has been focused on Marcus Willis, the world number 772 and, as a Brit in England during the time Wimbledon is taking place, it’s impossible not to take in the enthusiasm that erupts when a countryman/woman is doing well.
Can you believe it? The Aussie Summer of Tennis is already coming to an end. It wasn’t that long ago that we were saying #happy new year and preparing for the start of the new season.
