The 20-year-old, who is 661 in the world, has been catapulted into the media spotlight after beating a player ranked nearly 550 places above him and winning a place in the second round.

Eaton, who drives a battered Vauxhall Astra with one wing mirror covered in duct tape and strings his own rackets before each match, has been backed all the way by his parents.

He still lives with Mike and Sue Eaton at the family's £750,000 house in the village of East Horsley, near Guildford. His 56-year-old father runs his own computer business. They were watching nervously as their son competed in his first ever Wimbledon on Tuesday and sitting beside them in the stands was blonde Emma Cowles, 20, a Sussex University and model.

I'm really excited about Chris Eaton, it would be great to have someone up there with Murray I think, Wimbledon would be so much better Very Happy

I'd expect him now to make the Davis Cup squad and hopefully he gets to play in a tie as well.

At some point it might be a good idea to create a sub-forum for him Think

Could easily be premature creating this sub-forum but looking at how he performed against Tursunov, it's a good bet that he'll be a pretty decent British no-2 soon.

Eaton undone by classy Tursunov

British qualifier Chris Eaton's Wimbledon adventure ended with a second-round defeat at the hands of Russian 25th seed Dmitry Tursunov.

Eaton's big serve had helped him beat seven players to reach this stage but it could not help him here.

Tursunov needed a tie-break to take a close first set but quickly stretched away as the world number 661 faltered.

The support of a vocal crowd on Number One Court could not turn things around and Eaton lost 7-6 (7-2) 6-2 6-4.

It's best we get there first before anyone else. Sure, if he turns out to be sh*t again then I'll merge all this back to the one thread. After seeing the match though, if it wasn't for Chris' nerves then he had a decent chance at winning the match.

Im sorry but this really is a ridiculous sub forum.

Chris Eaton did not play well against Tursonov, he looked thoroughly out of his depth but made a good fist of it, aided by his only shot above his ranking - his serve.

There were plenty who knew about Murray from long before his appearance on the main tour and even before murraysworld because he was a prestigious all round talent.

Would be happy enough if Eaton could reach Karlovic heights with his serve, but thats surely his absolute limit...
