Eaton overjoyed to reach 'ultimate goal'
Britain's Chris Eaton is through to the main draw at Wimbledon after coming through qualifying at Roehampton.
The Surrey 20-year-old hit 31 aces to blast his way past Olivier Patience of France in a resounding 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 7-6 (7-3) victory in windy conditions.
"It feels so good and when you play well, everyone is beatable," said Eaton, who is ranked 497 places lower than Patience at 659.
Norfolk's Richard Bloomfield lost 6-3 6-4 3-6 1-6 8-6 to Alexander Peya.
Bloomfield battled back from two sets down before losing an agonising fifth set to Austrian Peya, who is ranked 218 places above him.
Eaton, the British number 13, will make his debut at the All England Club.
"I lost in the last match for the wild card play-offs in two tie-break sets," he said.
"That was a tough match which could have gone either way, but then I heard I had a wild card here. At Wimbledon I'll just go."
Eaton's success has been the one bright spot in a gloomy week for British hopefuls.
Josh Goodall lost 6-4 6-4 to American fifth seed Robert Kendrick in the second round, while Anna Smith and Amanda Elliott went out in round two of the women's event.
Smith, the 19-year-old British number 10 who beat Julie Coin, a Frenchwoman ranked 307 places above her in the previous round, lost 6-1 4-6 6-2 to Czech Zuzana Ondraskova.
Elliott, 18, triumphed over Japan's world number 290 Natsumi Hamamura earlier in the week but was beaten 6-4 2-6 8-6 to Croatia's Jelena Kostanic Tosic on Wednesday.
Tara Moore, Georgie Stoop, Sarah Borwell, Anna Fitzpatrick, Elizabeth Thomas, and Naomi Broady, Ken Skupski, Jonathan Marray, Edward Seator and Daniel Cox all crashed out in the first round.
Morgan Phillips had to retire with a knee injury sustained in the second set.
