The British No2 Ward has been granted his fifth wildcard at the Eastbourne’s AEGON international and achieved his best results on grass, including a run to the quarter-finals at Devonshire Park in 2010.

He hit a career-high world ranking of no137 in April 2012 and narrowly missed out at last year’s Wimbledon in a five set thriller to American ace Mardy Fish.

Ward represented Great Britain in the Davis Cup for the seventh time in April 2012, pulling off an incredible five set victory over Russian Dimitry Tursunov.

His Spanish coach Toni Colom arranged for him to spend time in Mallorca as Rafael Nadal’s hitting partner in December 2009, where he fine-tuned his double-handed backhand to great effect.
