Tennis. Wimbledon (Q) – Jules Marie, his incredible Monday at Wimbledon: “It was crazy”

Jules Marie had a completely crazy Monday at Wimbledon. Lower Normandy had been scrutinizing the entry list for the “Championships” qualifiers for several days, hoping for withdrawals. After sending a daring and amusing withdrawal request on Sunday to Andy Murray, the Frenchman thought he no longer had any chance before being saved at the last moment. Monday in the middle of the day, he finally won his place in qualifying thanks to the package of Calvin Hemery and was able to play his first Wimbledon at 32 years old.

Fifteen minutes after validation of the package d’Hemery by the referee, Marie faced Luca Van Assche. And the match was crazy. The world number 230 found himself serving for the match at 1-6, 6-3, 5-4 before breaking down and losing 6-1, 3-6, 7-6(8). The tennis player-youtuber experienced a roller coaster of emotions, as he explained during a Live Twitch.

“I had a fantastic two days”

“It was crazy. I had two fantastic days.”, he admitted before recounting his entry into the qualifying table of Wimbledon. “I updated the list every hour to see if there were any packages, wild card announcements, etc. I took three places at once thanks to unused wild cards. There was this story with Andy Murray. All the media announced it out. ATP too. Everyone took turns. In fact, I didn’t know if he knew the rule. Unsubscribe before 11 a.m. Monday to have an alternate included. I wrote to him with humor but he didn’t respond.

Finally, I learn that Vacherot is forfeited, I am out. I’m going to see the matches, I’m sure I won’t come back and then Calvin Hemery writes to me. He tells me he’s not going to come, even though he was supposed to start in 15 minutes, and asks me how to unsubscribe remotely. I go to see the referee and he says to me “you’re going to the match”. I’m trying to warm up a little. And a quarter of an hour later I was on the court.” The feat was only close but the memory will in any case remain well etched.

Jules Marie’s message to Andy Murray on Sunday

While the Frenchman was still second on the waiting list to compete the qualifications of WimbledonHe did “all in“by asking Andy Murray to withdraw before Monday 10 a.m.Colleague, goat, idol! I’m alternate for qualifying. Is there any chance that you will withdraw from the Wimbledon list before 10 a.m. tomorrow to let me play my first Wimbledon! Thank you, my dream…“In the end, the Briton was not withdrawn and that did not prevent Jules Marie to play his first Wimbledon.
