Wimbledon tennis player loses game and does not blame anyone else

A Russian number eight seed who failed to win his Centre Court match today has stunned press and fans by not blaming the wind, his opponent, an injury, the playing court, the umpire, weak barley water, the quality of catgut, or indeed anything.

‘I just played rubbish,’ he said.

It is believed this is the first time since 1936 that a tennis player has been this truthful in a post-match interview.

The player’s actions have caused concern among other professionals with Andy Murray saying that if he loses his next match, it’ll be because of the Russian’s remarks.
