OXFAM Fed up after Wimbledon defeat costs them £100,000

Roger Federer's shock Wimbledon exit has left Oxfam stunned after his defeat cost them a £100,000 payout from bookmakers William Hill.

Hill's customer Nick Newlife, from Oxford, bet £1520 at odds of 66/1 that Federer would win seven Wimbledons, back in 2003.

Mr Newlife passed away in 2009 aged 59, but willed the bet to Oxfam.

'It was a very charitable gesture by Mr Newlife to leave this bequest to Oxfam in his will -and the good news for the charity is that the bet is still valid until 2019, and as Federer is not yet 30 he could still land that elusive seventh triumph' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

WILLIAM HILL OFFER 3/1 THAT FEDERER WILL WIN THE TOURNAMENT IN 2012.
