THE Irish tennis fraternity is in mourning this afternoon, after news broke of World no.1239 Conor Creally’s disqualification from Wimbledon after he resorted to smashing serves with a hurl, WWN can confirm.
There were bizarre scenes on Court 16 as the Kilkenny tennis star battled against his opponent, John Isner in a gruelling 5-set match, which came to a sudden end after Creally produced a hurl and proceeded to play Isner off the court.
Breaking several rackets in frustration throughout the match while screaming ‘why are you so fuckin’ shite’ Creally grew tired of using the unreliable traditional striking apparatus of the game of tennis.
“Ah, I’m fairly shite now in fairness, just never got use to the racket. I blast the tennis ball for fun though with a hurl, sure you saw me, absolutely bating him out of it, but the umpires just can’t hack it. I’d be world no.1 if they just relaxed the fucking rules,” an irritated Creally told WWN in the aftermath of his disqualification.
Creally had successfully served out the match in the final game, striking 4 aces with the aid of his trusted hurl, but once the umpire questioned what Creally was doing, the end of his tournament was brought about by disqualification.
“I just thought ‘say nothing’ like, and I was all like ‘what are ya on about, tis a tennis racket, go away you’re seeing things. Don’t worry about it’. But I suppose when I served using a sliotar I really gave things away,” Creally conceded.
