Roger Federer, by some accounts the best tennis player ever, took on the 772nd-ranked player in the world, Marcus Willis, at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

We already knew this was an unfair match, and ESPN really drove the point home with a graphic before the first serve. Did ESPN really need to call out Willis for his lack of real estate ownership, though?

Woof. Why didn’t ESPN go ahead and list the guarantor on Willis’s lease too? Maybe Willis isn’t looking to buy right now considering the whole Brexit thing.

Also, what is Federer doing with three homes? Why doesn’t he build a clay court and practice instead?

It’s okay, Marcus. No matter what this graphic-maker says, there is no shame in renting.
