Wimbledon underdog Marcus Willis on 'surreal' fame

Membership inquiries have risen at the tennis club where Wimbledon underdog Marcus Willis plays, after his match with seven-time winner Roger Federer.

The British qualifier was beaten in straight sets by Federer on Centre Court on Wednesday.

Willis, from Slough, Berkshire, had come through six rounds of qualifying and the first-round proper.

In recent days, dozens of membership inquiries have been received at Warwick Boat Club, where Willis has now been given lifelong membership.

Speaking at the club, he said: "Kids want photos of me and want my autograph."
