Eaton Enclave this morning

Henman Hill, that last bastion of Englishness, is to be renamed Eaton Enclave after yesterday's unexpected Triumph of the Will of Chris Eaton, over Serbian Boris Pashankovichski.

Eaton, ranked 6661 in the world, hammered his more revered opponent, ranked 110, in three sets, enamouring himself with the pitiful, straw-grasping British public, who quickly forgot previous favourite, Scot Andy Murray, and renamed the Hill, the Enclave, because it starts with an 'E'.

The crowd roared Eaton on as he demolished the Serbian foe, who buckled under the onslaught of the British player's underhand shots, Eaton winning in straight sets, 6-3, 7-6 (8-6), 6-4, if you like that sort of thing.

He now faces a far better player in the Second Round on his way out of the tournament, but can be proud of his achievement as he watches the rest of the championships from the Enclave.

Murray, who also won, said:

"Great! Now I've even lost the Mound!"
