When you're Marcus Willis, a 25-year-old British tennis player ranked No. 772 in the world, you do everything you possibly can to gain an edge when playing at Wimbledon. Including channeling the power of your opponent.

Willis was such a longshot to beat seven-time champion Roger Federer that he decided to wear a polo with a Roger Federer logo printed on the sleeve. Genius!

Now, Willis is somewhat of a folk hero at the tournament, having won five straight qualifiers and his first two matches. That didn't stop him from fanboying over Federer in the form of a shirt, or from losing the first set, 0-6.

Where is the graphic listing all the Roger Federer shirts Willis owns, ESPN?
