Britain's James Ward, ranked 216 in the world. reaches the last four of the Aegon Championship.

This is a huge achievement, especially given clowns like bogdanovic have been given a Wimbledon wildcard for years with no success - reaching second round in a blue-moon.

British number two James Ward continued his incredible run at Queen's Club by posting two victories on a dramatic day to join Andy Murray in the semi-finals.

The Londoner, ranked 216 in the world, completed a rain-delayed third-round match against defending champion Sam Querrey, before returning a little over three hours later to defeat world number 54 Adrian Mannarino 6-2 6-7 (14-16) 6-4 in the quarter-finals

I followed it today and it was fantastic. Considering he was a break down in the 3rd set he player remarkably well.

What that statistic doesn't tell you is that he is 216th out of 217. I am 217th.

He's actually one who's had to try, ynlike hen-boy and now the overpampered 'I can beat Nadal [best of 3] Murray!.

Actually, do - It's an outrageously good game and you require good stamina levels and copious amounts of agility if played at a good speed. It's a game that has remained elitist in this country for far too long; most large Europa countries - and dumps like Serbia even - have a few in the top 100, let alone 300!

This amkes it even more remarkable; completed a rain-delayed third-round match against defending champion Sam Querrey, before [i]returning a little over three hours later to defeat world number 54 Adrian Mannarino 6-2 6-7 (14-16) 6[/i]

He threw a match-point away in the second and as Jay mentioned, was a break down immediately in the third and for anyone who plays tennis, a break is bad enough, let alone in this circumstance!

He defo deserves a wildcard if not already qualified for SW19.

He threw away seven match points! Which makes it more incredible he won.
