Crowdfunding Tennis Player At Wimbledon

Low ranked British tennis player Marcus Willis crowdfunded his touring expenses, met a fascinating woman and is now a possible contender at Wimbledon.

Raising donations to help him achieve his “childhood dreams,” his girlfriend convinced Willis to stay in the tour and he has battled his way back to a point that he is now poised to win at least GBP30,000.

If he wins today, he may face Roger Federer in the next round.
