"World's worst tennis pro" loses Telegraph libel case
It is all quite clearly a game of high stakes poker that has spectacularly backfired in the face of who many more people now recognise as the 'worst tennis player in the world'.
He thought that by going to expensive lawyers who would in turn begin racking up sizeable fees all on lucrative CFAs, that this big threatening bet would defeat all, as no defendant would want to bother with fighting a small claim, especially given the risk of a very hefty adverse costs order.
No doubt prior to trial, stakes were raised higher by Addleshaw's instructing a QC and a Jnr to fight the world's worst tennis player's corner against a one-stop-shop lawyer defending the Daily Telegraph.
Well done to the Daily Telegraph for calling the worst tennis player's bluff.
