Brits boo De Minaur

Alex de Minaur is enjoying his best-ever run at Wimbledon after making the fourh round, but it’s come at the expense of two Brits in a row and the crowd inside Court One were not happy – momentarily that is.

The Australian star impressed against Hugo Dellien before facing Brit Jack Draper in the second round.

Draper put up a good fight, but De Minaur proved too powerful in four sets with Liam Broady up next.

The No 19 seed once again had too much for the Brit as De Minaur progressed to the last-16 and the crowd inside Court One briefly booed him after the match.

The on-court interviewer mentioned that De Minaur had knocked out two Brits and the crowd jokingly booed before cheering the Aussie when the player was asked whether he felt he had won the supporters ove.

Percy Pig promotion

M&S have sent their thanks to Jodie Burrage for some free promotion of their famous Percy Pigs after the British star used the treats to help a ballboy earlier in the week.

During Burrage’s match against Lesia Tsurenko, the Brit rushed to the aid of a ballboy who required medical attention and fed him some Percy Pigs.

Burrage admitted after the match that the boy was feeling faint and she “just tried to get him some sugar”.

And M&S clearly appreciated the free promotion as they sent her a huge goody bag filled with percy pig bites and treats.
