Benoit Paire added to Beard of Wimbledon shortlist despite Murray defeat

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that it has added Benoit Paire to its first ever Beard of Wimbledon poll shortlist despite his defeat in three sets to Andy Murray on Monday.

The campaigners say that Paire demonstrated great beard power on Court and his beard should be something Murray moves to emulate if he wants to win the Championships again.

The Beard of Wimbledon poll will open on Thursday July 13th to allow a reasonable observation of the large number of hirsute players now involved in Wimbledon.

The campaigners have not previously run a poll because tennis, with a few exceptions, has been a very clean-shaven sport. However observation of Wimbledon games o far has suggested this is changing, with many more beards now on display.

The BLF has a special team of beard monitors watching the games at Wimbledon.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, Even if the chants are not there the influence of Jeremy Corbyn is being felt at Wimbledon. Beards are everywhere.
