It has been a year and a half now since Marcus Willis lived the biggest dream of his career. He started from Wimbledon pre-qualifying draw, reached the qualifying draw to beat Ricardas Berankis in the main draw first round before losing to Roger Federer in the second round in straight sets.
In an interview to Tennis.com, the current World No. 588, said match against Federer was 'the best day of my life, other than my wedding day', the 27-year-old British player said. He also explained his passion for the game and had something Interesting to say: 'I’m obsessed with this sport.
All I’ve ever wanted to do was play tennis. A lot of players seem like they’re going to work when they’re on the court. But if you really love what you’re doing, then why wouldn’t you smile?' This year Willis reached third round qualifying draw and got closer to repeat this experience again.
He will try to compete against best players again: 'Tennis can be quite a lonely sport, but I don’t want to give it up yet. I’ve always believed in myself and I don’t want to leave any stones unturned.
I don’t want to look back in 10 years and wonder, ‘What if?’ I just want to work hard and make those I love proud of me.' ALSO READ: Wawrinka: 'I am not at my best, Melbourne is the goal.
