Don't think I've ever seen his name on a headline (outside France), but here it is.
Australian Open 2010: Andy Murray's opponent Florent Serra aims for shock win
In France, he is about as famous as the French cricket team. Yet tennis player Florent Serra is aiming to belie his lowly world ranking by pulling off a shock win over Britain's Andy Murray.
If a British tennis player was ranked No 64 in the world he would be the domestic No 2 behind Andy Murray, but Serra competes under the Tricolore and that makes him the French No 10, one of the B-list behind the likes of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gaël Monfils, Gilles Simon and Richard Gasquet.
About the only chance that Serra has of achieving tennis fame these days would be if he manages to defeat Murray when they meet in the third round of the Australian Open.
"I'm very discrete, but that depends on me," Serra said. "Maybe if I beat Murray I would be on the front page."
It will be Murray's first encounter with Serra, a 28 year-old from Bordeaux, but the Scot's second match in succession at Melbourne Park against a Frenchman that those who picnic on Wimbledon's Henman Hill would not recognise if he walked straight past them wearing his accreditation badge.
There were three challenges for Murray on the Margaret Court Arena; the swirling wind in the bowl-like stadium, keeping his concentration in front of a 'pub crowd' who appeared to have spent most of the day over-doing the sun and the local lager, and also the tennis being played by Marc Gicquel, the world No 57 and the French No 9.
Murray dealt with all of them for a 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 victory, and since he had only dropped four games in his opening match against South Africa's Kevin Anderson, he has conceded just 12 games so far at this tournament.
Life has been very different at Melbourne Park for Serra. The Frenchman has already played a lot of tennis, as he needed five sets to defeat Austria's Jürgen Melzer in the first round and then another five sets to beat Jarkko Nieminen, having staved off the Finn's two match points.
For only the second time in his career, and for the first time since the 2008 French Open, Serra is through to the last 32 of a grand slam. He is also extremely tired. So is Juan Martin del Potro, last season's US Open champion, who needed five sets and more than four and a quarter hours to beat America's James Blake 6-4, 6-7, 5-7, 6-3, 10-8.
Louk Sorensen, who on Tuesday became the first Irishman in the modern era to win a match in the main draw of the slams, lost in straight sets against John Isner, a giant from the United States.
I do hope he can shock the world tomorrow, would be fun (sorry Andy).
