    Bravo James Ward: queens Club Semi-Finalist

    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

    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 returning a little over three hours later to defeat world number 54 Adrian Mannarino 6-2 6-7 (14-16) 6

    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.
