And a second round match on court three raised more than a few eyebrows.

Peniston set up the tie after beating Henri Laaksonen of Switzerland 6-4 6-3 6-2 on his Wimbledon debut yesterday.

The 26-year-old was one of SIX Brit men to reach the second round – the first time that has happened since 2001.

Another amused fan claimed: “Peniston vs Johnson. Jokes write themselves.”

Unfortunately Peniston could not repeat his round one heroics against Johnson as he crashed out 2-6 3-6 4-6 to the big-serving American.

Essex-lad Peniston overcame a battle with cancer when he was a child, which he claims was a “blessing in disguise” because it made him “tougher as a player and a person”.

Peniston revealed yesterday: “It definitely affected my growth. I was a really late bloomer. I was always about a foot smaller than all my peers.

“They all were growing and getting bigger serves and everything. I was struggling just trying to run around and get the balls.”
