Marcus Willis, who hails from Slough, the fictional home of the British version of "The Office," spoke to the press for a long time after the match. Some perspective: Total words on his transcript? 2,428. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who won earlier? 1,103.

A total of 17 Americans (men and women combined) played on Day 1 at Wimbledon. They finished with a disappointing 7-10 record, although the three seeded players (Venus Williams, Madison Keys and Jack Sock) all won.

Willis notes the 50,000 pounds for 2R more than he's earned this year (club league tennis, 30 pound an hour lessons, $300-ish prizemoney).

Perhaps the story of the day, Britain's Marcus Willis, ranked No. 772, beat Ricardas Berankis. Willis had to win six matches just to get to the main draw. Willis, who will take home at least $68k with the win (he earned only $356 in 2016 previously), explained his success: "The end of last year, I tore my hamstring again after [playing in] America. Start of this year I was in a really bad place, didn't want to get out of bed. Couldn't find the motivation to do anything really. I was very close to packing it in. I needed to get some money behind me. "But I sorted my head out. I was in a bad place and really was at a low point. Time helped and I met a girl and since then it has been very good and my head has been right."
