Deceased Man Might Win $150K on Tennis Wager

A gentleman named Nick Newlife, who died in February 2009, placed a little over $2300 in ’03 on the notion that Roger Federer would win seven Wimbledon titles before 2019. Federer won his first Grand Slam title in 2003. Newlife actually made a stipulation that his winnings should go to the charity organization Oxfam if he wasn’t around to cash in the ticket. The charity would earn over $156K if Fed wins at Wimbledon. Most oddsmakers have Federer at +225 with only Rafael Nadal ahead of him at +200.
