James Ward: British No 2 handed wild card for AEGON Championships
British No 2 James Ward has been given a wild card for the AEGON Championships at Queen's Club next month.
Ward reached the semi-finals of the London tournament last year, beating Stanislas Wawrinka and Sam Querrey in one of the high points of his career so far.
The 26-year-old also played a key role in Great Britain's Davis Cup victory over Russia last month.
Tournament director Chris Kermode said: "James Ward made a huge impression on the crowd in reaching the semi-finals in 2011, and his performance in Davis Cup recently was heroic.
"The head of men's tennis in Britain, Leon Smith, had no hesitation in recommending James for a wild card and we look forward to welcoming him back in June."
