British qualifier Marcus Willis at least had a sense of humor as he took Centre Court at Wimbledon on Wednesday against Roger Federer.
As pointed out by ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Willis showed up to his match against Federer dressed just like Federer.

Here’s a video of the two of them exiting the tunnel on their way to Centre Court, and Willis has the hugest grin on his face.

Federer swept through the first set in no time flat, winning 6-0. Willis put up more of a fight in the second set, losing 6-3. To this point in the third, he’s actually ahead 4-3, much to the delight of the home crowd.
Though, let’s not get ahead of ourselves and predict a massive comeback for the ages. Willis, ranked 772nd in the world, is likely just happy to be on the same court as the tennis legend, who has seven Wimbledon titles.
