Film Quizzes: #SportingUnderdogs

At Wimbledon earlier this year, world number 772 tennis play Marcus Willis shocked the tennis world by winning three pre-qualifying matches and then 3 qualifying matches to make the main draw. His unexpected rise continued when he beat Ricardis Berankis, the 53rd best player, in the first round. Though he lost to 7-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer in the second round, the part-time tennis coach had increased his earnings that year from £258 after deciding not to give up on the game

As Willis plays in Tie Break Tens tonight, a special $250,000 tie break event in Vienna featuring some of the biggest names in the sport, I thought I’d do a sporting underdog quiz in his honour. Do you have a favourite one, real or fictional? How have you done this time around?
