Team Bath Tennis player Liam Broady has been handed a wildcard into the main draw for both the men’s singles and doubles at Wimbledon 2018.
Broady, coached by Dave Sammel and Ian MacDonald at the University of Bath Sports Training Village, will be making his third appearance in the men’s singles at SW19 – he reached the second round in 2015 and faced Andy Murray on Centre Court in 2016.
He is currently ranked 168 in the world and made his Davis Cup debut for Great Britain earlier this year against Spain.
Broady will also partner former Team Bath player Scott Clayton in the men’s doubles at Wimbledon. They have been training together for the past couple of months and recorded a fine 7-6 6-4 win over the experienced Thailand twins partnership of Sanchai and Sonchat Ratiwatana at the Ilkley Trophy on Tuesday.
“We’ve been working on our game a lot over the last few weeks,” said Broady. “A few of the matches haven’t gone our way and it’s been quite frustrating at times but I think we are going to start seeing the fruits of our work now.”
