a spoon like Frank Leemydear's

Sensational news from the Australian Open where world number 2 Roger Federer has been knocked out by rank outsider Frank Leemydear, world number 621.

The feat was made even more remarkable by the fact that left hander Frank plays with a SPOON and not a conventional racket.

'It's taken a while to perfect my action' the young man explained, but now I feel I can beat anyone. My serve isn't the greatest, but the whip topspin I can produce off the back of the spoon is a joy to behold.I'm really pleased people are now starting to take me seriously, they didn't when I used a dinner knife.'

It's quite probably the biggest shock in Tennis history, and proof that those fancy tennis rackets aren't always what they are cracked up to be.

Speaking shortly after his shock exit Federer said 'I'm shocked.I've never lost to a bloke with a spoon before.'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
