Fantastic win for Ward, well done! :yeah:

Funny how he has impressed this week, and won't be at Wimbledon. Baker has sucked and is the only Brit that has a wildcard. Incidentally, Ward's ranking doesn't do him justice. He was unable to play for a little bit of last year due to illness.

Half hoping that there will be a couple more withdrawals from Wimbledon, which might free up an opportunity for Ward to get a last-minute WC. :shrug:

bogdanovic, as he can beat the other brits quite easily. hence, he's the brit no.2. he's ranked higher and has had a better career too.

Good result for Ward. Let's see if he can keep it up.

Rainer, ewww
Ward didn´t play bad, but still disappointing, rest well for Wimbledon now and win some matches there!

Well done Ward. Spent a lot of time at JCF's academy and good to see the hard work is finally paying off.

Could be embarrassing for the LTA if he makes a big run here and then doesn't appear at Wimbledon. Would love to hear them explain that to the press.

is it too late for them to give him a wildcard?

Corey Feldman

they still have 3 more WC's held back

surely Ward gets one and give the other to Boggo

Wont be long before Ward moves ahead of Boggedownowic.

boggo can't get one, since he lost in qualifying can he? :confused:

clever name you made there :rolleyes:

i agree though, ward is good. should rise into the 150s hopefully.

kuznetsov already has his WC

I really dont think youre allowed to play qualifying and then be given a WC if you dont make it.

Not sure about the situation with Ward though, hes well outside the 250 ranking limit theyve set

Corey Feldman

should change the rules for Bog

unreal that the Brit #2 wont be in Wimbledon

so were baker and bogdanovic in 2008, but they still got it :shrug:

Too late. They already let the alternates in.

I don't think it ever occurred to the LTA that Ward might win a few matches this week.

in fairness, its a pretty big surprise that he suddenyl reached a QF out of nowhere so i dont think the LTa were wrong at the time to not give him a WC

Would just love Ward to get to the final this week so he can stick a massive finger up at the LTA.

btw this QF brings him up to around 305 in the rankings because his highest points currently is from this tournament last year where he reached the 2nd round.

A win against Dolgopolov will put him around 260
